The White Goddess

Nov - 26 2020

Beneath the Moon I slept as it rose full. It was Midsummer’s Eve, and I was young; Unformed, untutored, but I felt its pull. In a dream, that night, an ancient tale was sung: A Goddess who upon occasion sought Her long-dead lover; her unfettered might Disguised in mortal form, her spell so wrought That […]

Just In Case

Mar - 18 2017

…you need something else to call Tronald Gump, here is the list I composed. Some of these may be found elsewhere, but none of them were copied. Not all gems, perhaps, but I wanted a mix of long and short. Prune Covered In Orange Slime Mold Decaying Baby-Tooth Dead Blobfish Dipped In Tang Thing Moving […]

American Imperialism

Mar - 13 2017

I was made aware of Steve McEllistrem’s blog post on militarization, Why Are We Militarizing the World?, on Twitter today. He makes a terribly clear statement on matters we are not supposed to think about. “Good” Americans who mindlessly repeat the Pledge of Allegiance, who want to Make America “Great” “Again,” who don’t see the […]

April Girl

Sep - 30 2014

This is a song that I wrote during my early-90s burst of warped creativity. Some people have read things into it that annoyed me (one stupid bitch in particular whose name I have forgotten, whose soul is torn by the avenging spirits….). Needless to say, whatever you read into it has more to do with […]

Star Dreamer

Jun - 18 2014

A song that I passed some time with ca. 1991 Star dancer, far dreamer, my ship on the sea Nightmist and starwind bring visions to me Flowers are opening under the sky Come with me, dream with me, just you and I Breathe deeply the sweet air of earlier times Rest in the soft darkness […]

Dance of Life (poem)

Jun - 01 2013

          Winging down in around the zoosphere we find a single being, intertwined invisibly in fleeting forms shadow-dancing with itself in separate mind seeking sometimes fearfully to know what lies behind its seeing. This is probably around 30 years old. I ran accross it for the umpteenth time while looking for […]

Ididdit

May - 13 2013

Published. On Smashwords.Yes, I did. A Drum Is Empty is finally available to readers who have already waited too long. I also uploaded two short stories as freebies. You might say I celebrated Mother’s Day by giving birth to a litter of literature. It was a day’s work. First, I had to make sure the […]

Why I Won’t Read Your Fanfic

May - 21 2011

Variations on an old rant. You have no idea how to construct a decent sentence and really don’t care. You can not or will not use sensible formatting, and stick your readers with a mass of run-together text and/or other discourteous and inhospitable barriers to comfortable reading. You misspell characters’ names. Really, this stuff is […]

No, no, not another!

Feb - 20 2011

I was once a fan of Jean Auel’s Earth’s Children(TM) series. I loved Clan of the Cave Bear. It was the best cave-people novel I had ever read (unfortunately, that’s not saying too much; the competition back then was sickly). I loved parts of Valley of Horses. Parts of it were…let’s just say, not what […]

Wottever II

Feb - 03 2011

Still out of luck with excluding stuff. My best option for now is to turn off the tweet digest — I don’t really need it anyway. Meanwhile, spam goes on. Most of it wouldn’t fool a month-old puppy, but who wouldn’t like to be flattered all to heck with: Wow, incredible blog layout! How long […]
