The Sistine Chapel, 2032
When there still wasn’t a Pope on the third vote, the mood in the room went downhill fast. We had maybe half a keg left. There were pizza boxes all over the floor, and a couple of freshman cardinals were eating strings of congealed cheese… Read full post »
Your hand grows cold in mine.
Cupped in your palm,
I find a girl.
JLP 1926 - 2009
She died last evening, an easy death after a stunningly awful few days.
A week ago, my mom was laughing and as alive as anyone I have known. I spent last Tuesday with her and she hoovered up a fudge brownie from her favorite bakery, Back In The Day. Like… Read full post »
Class IV rapids. Family hobby gone tragically awry. Tearful parents set aside their differences and share an agonizing vigil at Cataract Canyon.
CNN employs a "virtual river" wall map and Dr. Sanjay Gupta. MSNBC's split screen contrasts the real-time crisis with flashbacks to happier tim… Read full post »
I'm watching Muammar Gadhafi's speech to the United Nations and it's impossible to know whether he wants everyone to duck and cover, or participate in a group hug. The simultaneous translation is being performed by Latka Gravas, who keeps correcting himself on key points: ("You should accept...… Read full post »
There is a crack in space and time
where you step into the void

Canteloupe is either luscious or disappointing. There is no in-between.
Have finally listened to The Rubberband Man one time too many.
I can't enjoy Twitter. I might get 'followers' and then I'd feel responsible for them.
I have lost a friend to Second Life. Scuppernongs are… Read full post »
"Choose your safe words," you said.
I won't need any. You won't go too far.
And you didn't. You took us where we needed to go, to the edge and plummeting over it, but never too far. Genius body. Beloved heart. I had no need for safe/… Read full post »
Here is just a partial accounting of celebrities who are not alleged, at least by me, to be sexually involved and/or criminally complicit with Former Half-Term Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin:
Gov. Mark Sanford (R-SC) heads into a "meeting" with his "staff." (AP)
Repercussions so far:
Family Values are down by 5 points.
Unemployment in Sanford's state remains steady, at around 11.5 percent.
Moral absolutes - the governor assures us - are sti… Read full post »
Weeks after you were buried, I came alone and played Pavarotti for you. "The fat guy with the great set of pipes," you used to call him. I brought the Walkman I had given you one Father's Day, and those tinny little speakers. If anyone had been watching, they'd have seen a woman/… Read full post »
William Osborne, age 36, was convicted of rape in 1993. He fought unsuccessfully for the right to prove his innocence with DNA tests developed since his trial. (Photo: Bill Roth, Anchorage Daily News)
Yay, Alaska. Today the Supreme Court upheld your right to rem… Read full post »
Or did I bathe a small unwilling dog? I don't know - and I'm afraid.
Memory is tricky in the aftermath of what was clearly an awful struggle. The deepest of the claw-marks is roughly shaped like a goat's head. There are pools of water in the bathroom… Read full post »

Okay, since I'm new here I thought I should be a good OS citizen and do the digg/reddit thing with some favorite posts. Starting today. Registering is easy enough. The difficult… Read full post »

PART ONE ~ “Tender Was the Mesclun” ~
Clarice sauntered past the male rabbits with a dismissive glance. They were strangers to the garden, and in a lean season she might have objected to the intrusion. But not today. There were more than… Read full post »
“Who's a pretty bird?”
“I love you!”
“I care a lot about you too.”
God I was greedy
Gulped it down like lemonade
Careless of consequences
Drunk with joy!
I spilled some.
Splashes of sweetness on wet sand
And while it vanished there,
I was already reaching for more --
Nothing's left but time. Read full post »

This is Daisy Floribunda, a dog of uncertain pedigree. I believe she is a dingo/hamster mix.
