Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Forte - Poem - on hearing about a book of poetry being burned

Poem based loosely on D.H. Lawrence's 'Piano', one of my favorites

Occasion: I heard that one of my friends was burning a book of poetry due to a lack of shelf space.


Softly, in the dusk, a woman is burning me;
Taking me back down to the state of ashes, till I see
Myself sitting on a book store shelf anew,
Waiting for the first human to crack me open and take a view.

In spite of myself, the insidious mystery of rhyme
Betrays me back, till the spine of me weeps to belong
To the old Sunday evenings at home, with April 25th outside
And hymns by the cozy fireplace, the blinkling iPod our guide.

So now it is vain for the book to burst into flames
With the tiny black Apple audio appliance appassionato.
The glamour of editorial days is upon me, my table of contents is cast
Down in the flood of remembrance, I smolder like a charcoal briquette for the past.

Something New:

I am also in the process of linking my poetry blog entries together. This project is only partially finished. A "Poetry LINK" at the bottom of the blog entry points to the next older piece of poetry.
