It’s National Poetry Month . . . Shake The Dust.

“This is for the hard men
Who want love
But know that it won’t come
For the ones
Who are forgotten
The ones for whom the Amendments do not stand up for
For the ones who are told to speak
Only when you are spoken to
And they’re never spoken to
Everytime you stand
So you do not forget yourself…”

An Incendiary Matter [The Creative Spirit Is Contagious]


Greetings, Beloved Darklings, Queerios, Style Fiends
& Ne’er-Do-Wells…

As the sun begins its descent here in this Babylon-on-the-Pacific commonly referred to as Los Angeles, I propose a Theme for The Evening, most beloved blogerati. [ to do with as you will — or conversely, as you won’t ; who’s to say? ]

fire, gif, animated GIF, three frames

Inspired by this GIF-tastic little gem I’ve reblogged, courtesy of the kind folks at Three Frames [ attribution hereby duly noted : please.uh-huh,and.thanks ]

The motif proposed is that of

ᐞ△ᐞ · f i r e  · ᐞ△ᐞ

Represented by a particular symbol with ancient ties to the practice of alchemy, Fire is elemental.

“The energy of life manifests in two forms : fire and air. While both are predominately active in nature, fire is the more active of the two, with air being slightly passive because of the partial water element in its makeup. Potential Matter manifests its energy as water and earth.”

“The alchemical sulphur, or soul, of a thing predominates in the animating principles of energy (fire) and intelligence (air). Alchemical salt, or the physical body of a thing, predominates in unconscious forces, psychic, and instinctual intelligence (water) and solid matter (earth). Alchemical mercury, or general life force, predominates in intelligence (air) and instinctual forces, and psychic energy (water), as such it is the link, or bridge, between the higher forces of sulphur and the lower body of matter.”

[ sourcery ]

Nevertheless, my intent behind this post is not to point you in a single direction, but rather propose a topic to set one’s rhetorical embers ablaze, so to speak…

What role does fire play in your life?

Is it astrological?
[ Aries, 8th of April, in my case ]

[ Something you fear / something that incites desire, or is erotically-charged? ]

Or, better still:
Upon seeing or hearing the word,
Are there connotations that have little or nothing to do with what I’ve mentioned?

[ “Firestarter (3)” by Elizaveta Porodina ]

Whatever medium[s] of communication you might choose : words of your own, or that of another; photography [ ditto, self-created or reference points of inspiration ]; technology [ case in point: the animated .GIF embed herein ]; paint pencil canvas paper spray paint graffiti billboards buildings a keyboard the cello lit candles incantations magic mayhem…

Whew! Let me try that again . . . By whichever / whatever means you might choose, I look forward to seeing not just how you respond to me, but rather, something infinitely greater: the universal dialogue of creative expression, and the means by which it connects us, asserts our relevance at a specific moment in time.

Within / among / along the infinite umbilical cord that connects humanity ; the splendor of nature ; the universe.

Bookends Don’t Always Need A Page (A Blog Comment In The Form Of A ‘Free-Write’)

For Kime, Whom I’ve Just Discovered Lives

themoldydoily.typepad.com :

the moldy doily, kime buzelli


Though your emotions may feel as if they’ve been scattered,
Smothered and covered in the Waffle House of Existence, the
Artwork you create is indeed a language understood by others:

Think of it as speaking in hieroglyphics.

Words that never have to be “learned”– yet are universal,
Exist outside the constraints of time, and become exponentionally
More subjective as they’re strung together.

A strand of jewels that has no concern for what I refer to as ‘Millenial Newspeak’–

Eyes devour the resplendent, the visually stunning
Even when minds shift off and a virtual screen-saver glazes over

Any “tl;dr”



Orwellian B.S.


Said another way?

The heart has no need for

Even on an “off” day, you
Affect it, its
Chamber by

The body of work you’ve created

Skitters with an emotional velocity too deft for
Man’s lazy Abbreviations. No need
To dial Orwell on
The White Courtesy Phone

There are no acronyms in the
Human condition; whether
We ‘choose to be all right’
Or not

It just is
What it is

It just is.
