"Even the date of the Christian era was in dispute at the close of the eleventh century, a certain school maintaining on astronomical grounds that the current reckoning was twenty-two years too late, so that the year 1100 ought really to be 1122." --Th* R*naissanc* of th* Tw*lfth C*ntury

"Old Findings"

Post karma, wishful thinking trap: black fathoms;
long gazing down Satan black fathoms.

Swift candy
pangs anagram black fathoms.

Boils tomorrow's dawn
with cloud black fathoms.

Pilgrim curd
squirming in aorta black fathoms.

Scroggy Parnassus up which twinkling Grinchus
thrusts back basalt black fathoms.



On my victrola: Kar*l Go*yva*rts- Litani*s. (An oddly various list i found as i was looking.)

"Davos

Red and blue flicker · the forces of order restored, Bad Jesus.
Elaborate panning shots · above the nighttime city, Bad Jesus.

In our tiny lit abode · as the coffeemaker gurgles
I hear the cackling and the crackling · of the rain, Bad Jesus.

Twitching in the semi-dark · shoppingcenter parkinglot
as I took out the store trash, · grounded stray parakeet, Bad Jesus.

Redifiably impocerous · urban camo halter top
"American Idol" wannabe · and Osama's pic again, Bad Jesus.

New York Times impeachment ad · and the polar bears slipping off
their crumbling blue ice floes · bloody bathroom towels, Bad Jesus."

   "Darfur"

At story's ostrich stilb
Following crisp hyacinth ask
Following as story's crisp rim
Across shadowy isthmus storms

Silk clasping abort
Of following slow slags
So twinkling rich and against
Scoriac bricks

Wisp is spawn which ryotwar
Ransoms ichor with snail stun
Wharf



"I think it's a good time for music when it's a good time for shoes." --Tom Waits


"Hubert. It is a fearful and tempestuous time,
The concave firmament, the angel's bridge
O'er the world's day and night, is visibly
Bowed down and bent beneath its load of thunder,
And through the fiery fissures of the clouds
Glistens the warfare of armed elements,
Bellowing defiance in earth's stunned ear,
And setting midnight on the throne of day.

Huntsman. The roar has ceased; the hush of intercalm
Numbs with its leaden finger Echo's lips,
And angry spirits in mid havoc pause,
Premeditating ruin in their silence."

--Th* Brid*s' Trag*dy
