Blue Check FlagThe natural locationBlue Check Flag by `CrumpetsHarvey
to begin a revolution
is the breakfast table.
No one is happy
as it is far too early
but everyone is there,
(If there is no
it is definitely time to revolt.)
Attention! the lady of the house
demands, tapping a butter knife
on her coffee cup.
Lace up your boots and let’s march.
Ben grabs the breadknife,
Heather the greasy saucepan. Dom
whips the tablecloth from under
plates of half-devoured toast
and waves the blue checks aloft.
and Ellen clangs two spoons.
At desks chairs are empty,
gaps are unminded,
Tablecloths fly over the
highway, and spoon bands sing.
The Season!When the season arrivesThe Season! by `CrumpetsHarvey
it is terribly unfashionable
to breathe, to blush, to beat.
The deadest dance
is a lame waltz,
all bloodless hands, cold feet.
Oh, everybody wants to be dead!
It’s terribly modish
to catch influenza and wilt,
to bubble with cancer
take a knife to the groin,
to cascade to the ground and rot.
It’s a craze! A romp!
A lark! They say,
you’ll see the cosmos’s frozen heart,
perceive the language of stones,
at the living, alone and inept.
It’s the season:
even the living paint themselves corpses,
bruised and ragged and white.
All of us want
to be deader these days,
to admire ourselves finished, complete,
a painting, a novel,
a famous museum,
a “look what I made, what I did!”
So put on your shroud,
for this is the season:
it’s horribly chic to be dead.
Thanksgiving Note Project 2010The Thanksgiving Note ProjectThanksgiving Note Project 2010 by `GaioumonBatou
I've held the Thanksgiving Note Project for three years now, as a means of seeing what people were thankful for, and to spread a bit of happiness around because it's nice to remember what it is we have to be thankful for in the first place. The first year, I received two fantastic sets of notes, and the second year I received even more.
This year...well you know what they say. Third verse, same as the first, a whole lot louder and a whole lot worse.
A few clarifications:
This project is open to everyone. I live in California, and as such the dates for this project fall close to the US Thanksgiving; however, anyone and everyone is welcome to take part, regardless of location.
