jamie's writing

 

plant this magic bean

without the moss, there would have been nothing remarkable about the 

castle, other than it's colossal width

 

.

 

untitled

things started returning to me
in fistfuls

i squat by the ocean in the blue zone

and watch it fade, the clouds hullver
and fayd

things look like they have been blue-
blocked

in the distance i see poseidon waving 
like a maniac

winking like a maniac

his jaw is clenched, his paddle is wide, 
his trident is manned by the towering
torso

he's a maniac, he sings to the moon,
the same 

moon, full, hurdled, he pleads,
he shouts

he growls like a wolf, he donkeys

a wave begins to sing,
sounding like a thousand ladies 
at first tiny, a fractal image 
i am twined with
centimeters in sight, off the horizon

a shining green ox razor 

a lime monster

my surfboard quakes beneath me,

the timpani comes in 

i am green roomed
scoping 

a red vipe slithering through the wave
red spider dancing through the web

poseidon's tiny ponies beneath, 

"never back down"

Jamie's Music

When it came to music, Jamie seemed to like a little something in everything. He began by playing cello and piano, then guitar and banjo, to fiddle, harmonica, and ukulele.

In his young adult life, he began to compose and produce his own music, with his sound being just as interesting as himself. He started a record label, CatsCats Records, and also released music with WharfCat Records. 

Halloween 2015 will see the release of his first album, compiled and produced by Janine.
