@checkervest ah the folly of youth, not recognizing that greying hair fucking rules

@checkervest Thank you, Alex! I'm glad this little experiment is bearing fruit.

For this #VerseThursday I wish upon you a couple of verses from The Maker, a song by Daniel Lanois

Oh deep water
Black and cold like the night
I stand with arms wide open
I've run a twisted line
I'm a stranger
In the eyes of the maker

My body is bent and broken
By a long and dangerous sleep
I can't work the Fields of Abraham
And turn my head away
I'm not a stranger
In the hands of the maker

"The world is seldom what it seems;
to man, who dimly sees,
realities appear as dreams,
and dreams realities."
Thomas Moore
(05/28/1779 – 02/25/1852)
Irish writer ("The Last Rose of Summer")
#inadvertent #VerseThursday

My self-imposed rule this week was "write on the commute, edit during lunch" and it's yielded stuff that is outside of my usual wheelhouse but still sounds like me, which means it must be working

Show thread

I will answer any and all questions about the movies I like

MTG, uspol, transphobia 

@radicalrobit I was very confused for the split second I thought this was about Magic: The Gathering

@alex I'm not mad at you, I'm just disappointed in myself for being able to parse this

Happy #VerseThursday :flan_hurrah:

Blizzard
BY WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS
Snow:
years of anger following
hours that float idly down β€”
the blizzard
drifts its weight
deeper and deeper for three days
or sixty years, eh? Then
the sun! a clutter of
yellow and blue flakes β€”
Hairy looking trees stand out
in long alleys
over a wild solitude.
The man turns and there β€”
his solitary track stretched out
upon the world.

Good morning Party People, another has come to be

I swear, you watch Last Temptation of Christ one time, ONE TIME, and then next time you set pen to paper it's liturgy this and vocation that, dogg you haven't been in a church on purpose in like 20 years

It's high time I share one of the poems I wrote this week rather just crow about them. This is called "The Church of the Bent Antenna." pastebin.com/MLVjtkuD
