An Exercise

May 11, 2011

This is from two years ago. I used to do writing exercises like these every now and then, when I felt like I didn’t have enough ideas, just to prove to myself how much you could do with barely one idea.

once we were going to take the train.
take the train to florida we were going to
take the train, like you had in the old days.
all the way down to florida we were going to
take the train.
it would take 3 days. the idea was so exciting.
this idea of traveling all the way.
taking the train all the way.
watching everything change. seeing not just the start and endpoint.
seeing everything all the way down when we were
going to take the train
to florida.
all the way down. then all the way back up.
up and then down.
taking the train. we were going to.
and then we didn’t.

once we were going to take the train.
once we were going to take the train to florida.
to florida, we were going to take the train, once.
once, from here to florida, we were going to take the train.
going to take the train to florida, we were.
we were going to take the train to florida.
it would take 3 days.
for us to take the train from here to florida.
we were going to.
and then we didn’t.

to florida, we were going to take the train.
from here to florida. it would take 3 days.
to take the train from here to florida.
we were going to. that way there would be all the in-betweens.
not just start then stop.
there would be everything changing inbetween.
on the train that we were going to take to florida.
we were going to.
and then we didn’t.
