What is a QUATRO. It’s a new type of very very short poetry that usually compares two things, in a haiku – way, packing a lot of meaning in a very small amount of words. There is usually a very real comparison, and behind it a 2nd deeper meaning. I see many readers seem to like these – great! Pass your favorites around if you want – Tom Hendricks

He filled his house ....

He filled his house with water pitchers (not another poem – yes another poem)
-------------------
He filled his house with water pitchers
in hutches in every wall.
Lighting struck and started a fire
that engulfed every floor.

But as the shelves began to collapse
the pitchers would tip their spouts.
And the water pouring forth
would put the fires out.

Sayings of Editor Art - the summer rerun

Sayings of Editor Art – summer rerun
--------------------------------
Rhode Island, the closet state; because, there is no ‘room’!

That ‘apple of mother’s eye’ is spoiled rotten!

Headline: ‘Blues singer wins lottery but looses livelihood’.

Some acorns fall in the shadow of the oak.

On my life: Could be a little better, could be a lot worse.

Sayings of Editor Art - the made for tv version

The real scary monster for 12 year old boys is puberty.

The media's job is to not only report the problem, but also the solutions. That's the 2nd half of the story.

Child reply to Mom: I bet dinosaurs didn't have manners!

Funny the older my photos are, the younger I look!

Just like the zero advance math, so the eraser advanced art.

Nature seems to tell us that God is not a melodramatic God, but a methodical one.

How do you end corporate art?

When I started my zine Musea in 1992 the mission was clear, Support the best of Independent artists of all kind, and oppose the abuses of Corporate art. What is corporate art? It's those handful of mega-corporations - often called the Big Six - that control the majority of this country's music, film, radio, publishing, media etc.



So when someone on a newsgroup asked me, 'how do you oppose corporate art', I answered with this:



Here's my solution to ending corporate art from… Continue

Sayings of Editor Art – The Road Trip

All thunder, no rain.

Women are oblivious to how provocatively they are dressed; but let another woman show too much and they see that immediately!

Spring visits every town.

You don’t get married to shake hands.

It’s a capital idea that just needs capital.

The Telescope (poem)

Readers, I am working on part two of the Musea issues connected to my sci-fi novel in progress. Here is a poem that will be a part of that work. From Writing In Science - Sci fi Novel, Poem Collection. See the musea.us website , latest issue for more:

the telescope
runs by itself
swivels here and there
in search of a light source
a galaxy lit
in the ever night
placing it finally
in an ongoing atlas
of time and place -
floating coordinates.

Why not Art Copies too

Look around where you are now. Are there books (mass marketed writings)?. Are their recordings (mass marketed music)?. Are there dvd's (mass marketed movies)? Are their exact copies of paintings and drawings? Probably not. But why not?



We can now make copies of most paintings that are exact replicas. So why not mass market art like books, music, and movies? I've talked about this a lot in my zine Musea. I'd like to see us artists hold on to the original art and sell… Continue

Stadium concerts

Do you like arena concerts? Stadium music? Do you think the ticket pricing is fair? Do you get mad when you fight your way in among the thousands and all the best seats up front, down on the floor, are filled with jewelry wearing fat cats that got their tickets for free to promote the concerts? Do you like the excess fees you pay, the lines you stand in, and the parking? When you hear your parents talk about concerts for $5, do you think they are exaggerating?



Here's the problem with… Continue

Pardon Me Sir - Nonsense verse for April Fool's Day

APRIL FOOL'S DAY SPECIAL

Pardon me sir, but have you heard

That on you back there sits a bird?

At first I didn’t even notice,

thought my eyes were out of focus.

Now I think it’s just absurd

that on your back there sits a bird!
