Project: Upon turning 50 years old on August 16, 2020, Dave Olson (me, hello) is posting a photo (or maybe photos) a day / per year – starting with 1970 with intent of chronicling existence through various primary evidence sourced from studio portraits, class photos, ID / passport photos, or occasionally other “casual/group/random” shots when the above don’t exist in my archive (note: not “artificial intelligence,” really me, pulled from shoeboxes, journals, wallets and whatnot – diligently scanned and dated via glasses and haircuts, lightly annotated).

#daveo50 ~ 2001 #remix (shapeshifting) / bargain matinée nod

Just shapeshifting various identities like a global dude of clandestine intrigue and espionage of happenstance / 2001

#PossiblyWorldsWorstSpy

{encoded / embedded} 

sunday providence
grey like last week
with my bargain matinee cough syrup nod
candy coated hold onto my thick head
next wave goes to mars
next even further
watch the clothes spin
in their fluff and dried
nebulae

i’ve tried it all on bended knees
but i’ll just think here and sit about
lost months and misplaced friends
haggard days and ice cream cones

i’ll stand here
holding nothing
try to think
how i got here
then figure where i am

i’ll stand a shady place
counting nickels

and happenstance
empty out my pockets
on the ground
you can’t trade lint for bread and cheese

“it’s cloudier now than
its been for years” 

(to no one in particular) 

i’ve spent days moving quickly
years dreaming loosely
and hours watching patiently
and weeks muddling and fidgeting

for the moment that is now
elsewhere and sometime long before

#daveo50 ~ 1992 #remix (ids x 5) / road is life so…

Go go go, the road is life so we roll /
20 bucks can get you a long way

#daveo50 ~ 1992 #remix (ids x 5) / road is life so…

~
the collective sigh
of the worlds sleeping and
shepherds keeping
frogs’ head out my
roadway my byways
otherwise
i haven’t felt this way
since this time last night
since something exactly like this happened
right on random coincidence standard time See less
