POL POT LUCK

nine-thirty
ready for the house
interplanetary discussion
foreign key–six and six
the rocks crumble
telegraph melts
your turn to fall
put my dream on this planet

later on…
chair beside a window
staring at the cellophane
living in a moon so blue
modern dances follow your footsteps
you walk alone, this narrow road
on the way…the living end…
somebody in the snow–
blue corpse
one foot in the North
twelfth apostle graven image
lost cause
glad to get away
I woke up
new town
the beginning…

  1. Had a dream last night, rescuing many doves… Purplefoot and Geeky were there, dear doves .

  2. NOT Dovey, but could have been

  3. Hah, so funny how feet seem like other birds to them. I thought I was going to have a roadrunner pet awhile ago; every morning he’d come around the bedroom window looking for crickets & lizards, and actually scratch the window with his big claws or peck the glass, then I’d go out to the front door and he’d be over there hunting and pecking around the porch. Haven’t seen him for awhile though. Funny birds. Beep!

  4. The guy from Office Space who fronts the Dave Matthews cover band in New Zealand wrote this “eerie” (well…that’s his word…i say “creepy…you might say “vampirella”) story about my favorite economist trapped in Hong Kong who may or may not have a body:

    Eerie. That was how the experience of Japan’s latest earthquake was described by a veteran familiar with living with the natural occurrence. Benjamin Grier, an economist for a Hong Kong-based think tank, visits Tokyo and other areas of Japan often. Grier had planned to be in town for a quick presentation and planned to extend the trip into a short holiday. Now he is having trouble getting back home. As life-long friend, former business partner and current co-writer of our blog, I usually speak with him at least once per week. With utter chaos all over the news networks I picked up the phone to call him and got the voice mail without ringing.

    …..

    Grier earned the nickname “Dr. Warbucks” for taking grant money and doing most of his work in war-torn Africa. It seemed that whenever he arrived in places that had a long period of peace, war would break out. Eventually he took a cozy desk job eager to escape the calamity that seemed to follow him. And even after multiple trips into Japan with no troubles he is convinced that he is bad luck and his visit is somehow related to the natural disaster.
