The Language of Mudawups

Sometimes when we get full enough of nothing we’ll hear our mind grinding……………………..

She pushed me.
I felt her small hand push me gently forward to a better view.
I was back upon that line I’d drawn between crossing over to adult , a consequence of growing up so I’d been told.

And over time I realized it also closed out the innocence of imagining.
I now speak in my language of originality and make this stand before you.
We separate ourselves with the thinking we’re big people now with bigger realities to gather.
What a load of pauper platitudes we serve to ourselves.
We love ourselves poorly when we could be so very very rich, there is a smile … we are so human for better or worse.

Sometimes my imagination takes me into a world of thirteen lunar moons and six suns inhabited by warrior spiderflies with wiry wings encrusted in raspberry crystals.
A world so infinitesimally small it fits leisurely into my cupped hand.
Tonight I plan to take a quieter adventure and fold into my bed of smart crisp linen, all touch and smell collectively to bequeath me Queen for the night.

When I was a very little haze of girl I had many imaginary friends around me.
I speak of my beloved Mudawups.
They’re better than science fiction chameleons.

A pet triffid and not my first Mudawup but a significant one came out to play with me when I read John’s book.
He held my hands as he wounded my young mind beautifully with a slick pouring of his imagination into mine.

Imagination I would think it could be genetic gene named Alice.
I think we are all a non gender Alice at one point in our life, surely that is true…

Imagine yourself without your imagination?
I would feel completely naked in reality.
It would be an atmosphere catastrophically smeared in choking boring debris.

That’s just not living in my book.
Time to take my triffid for a walk…
