Quatros - 4 new ones

QUATROS



when the sky is clear

stars abound



a foreigner

in heavy fog



scarecrow warning sign



outside noise!

the reader surfaces ...



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.…

First Quizzical of June

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:



Perhaps the best YEAR in rock was 1965 (I could vote for that). And perhaps the greatest rock song of that year was "Like A Rolling Stone" by Bob Dylan. But which take of the fifteen of that song on June 16th, did they use for the record?



Let me set the scene June 15th. Bob has already recorded 9 takes of "Phantom Engineer", and 6 of "Sitting on the Barbed Wire Fence." Now he begins to work on "Like a… Continue

Sayings of Eddie Art (continued)

Sayings of Eddie Art (continued)

SAYINGS:



X: Did it hurt when you fell out the window?

Y: Only the last step.;



The music business has been in pretend mode for a long time.



The desire for peace has to be stronger than the desire for revenge (to end a conflict)



The most elaborate fashion is often the quickest to date, and the most simple seldom goes out of style.



Loss of diversity leads to loss of tolerance for diversity [small… Continue

Love Poems (4)

FOUR LOVE POEMS

had I
not been in love
I would have passed
the flowers by

the Lord
has a sword
and the Lady
a baby

..

Love is only pain and sorrow
yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
One door in and no way out.
Only pain to sing about

...

the Match
met the Candle ...
true love!

Quizzical for late May

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

This artist took reproductions of his best works and put them in boxes and sold them in limited editions. Name that artist. (For extra credit who was his most famous helper).

IS,

Marcel Duchamp's "Box in a Valise". His most famous helper may have been Joseph Cornell, who is also known for his 'boxes' of art.



I had no correct eligible answers - seems y'all were in tight spots enough, but your lid was… Continue

4 Poems for my Bestiary collection

Poems for my Bestiary

...

bird in the sky

me on the ground

and so much space

in between

...

toy dog

in the arms of a browser

looking at the

stacks of books

"What's the difference

between one and another?"

...

the architect Ant

young and unexperienced,

looks into air,

shakes his head,

"A mounds been done!

...

This King loved to fish

but he had a fear of getting wet



So his… Continue

Poems with Spirit

The original building
had a tower
to catch the wind

but now it's gone
it kept geting clogged
with low flying clouds!

...

one bell
in the tower
was deaf

...

this sacred air
keeps escaping
out of the church

...

and on
and on
and so forth
and so on

...

Zen text?
Blank book?
I get them both
mixed up!

Someone Did an article on Most Overlooked Book - my response

Someone did an article on the best overlooked books of the year. Here is my response: Most overlooked? Compare with an entire golden age of literature overlooked by everyone! Zines, or the desktop explosion from late 80′s for a decade or so, produced not only great writing, but great book making and illustration tied in with that writing. It was the first literature that included bookmaking as part of the achievement. It was the best writing of the 90′s and I bet you don’t even know about the… Continue
