Sans A Murder

crow alone does not

a murder makes no sky sense

singular tragic

“gone, I fear,” three set haiku

 

~

each night passing by

nest questing falling feathers

disappearing storks

~

 cold settling heart

dead men kiss no lips but mine

running waters brine

                                                                                              ~

shadows waiting light

 shift where love dwells nights fleeing

hushing nightingale

“transient” plus a touch of real Joan Osborne~ on the side for good measure

“transient”

catching number ten humboldt

eleven years riding

day begins at 6:17 am northbound

dies

then live again at 5:15 pm southbound

weekend hells

mondays through fridays swell

smiles on tuesdays

wednesdays wedging between masses

seats sharing thursdays

fretful friday exits

monday morning winks again

silent moves all around

until there’s one less in the bus crush

one tick tocker detoured

without a word

what did you expect 

 just transit affair

 @wojcik

 

 

Now for Joan Osborne as the voice was meant to be….

“dead leaves”

 

 

checking obituaries

 high roads, low roads, Dante’s circles, some gutters

dead love leaves no trace

 

 

Chasing Ice + Cafe Mocha + Climate Change + Cyberspace + Cinema = Chatty

Chasing Ice website http://www.chasingice.com/  Complete with link to James Balog’s photography and much more.

With all the ways there are to share information and communicate in this time of technological multitasking galore “mail” remains a constant source as both snail mail (those hard copies that are deposited in your own private hard copy mailboxes) and email (all the electronically created and delivered “soft” efforts to communicate via cyberspace complete with “in boxes” and mailing options. Anyone else recall the attempt by the American government to charge US all five cents per email we sent? Have I got that right? So far that effort to get a slice of the internet mail pie has failed. So far. I think. I may be wrong about this failure to milk us.).  Why do we so enjoy getting all our forms of “mail”? One reason I enjoy my mail is because of the information it brings to my attention that I may well have otherwise missed or overlooked or simply never discovered. There is something to be said for “subscribing” to business websites for updates and notifications. Are you all bored and wondering what the heck any of this has to do with the Chasing Ice video? Okay. I subscribe to the Tivoli Cinemas in Westport (an area of Kansas City, Missouri) and as a result I receive a weekly email regarding which films are being shown and when at the hard copy theatre complete with big screens, comfy seats, and the rare option to buy or bring your own yum yums for consumption while viewing all sorts of films. If I  did not have this subscription I probably would never have known that Chasing Ice is appearing exclusively at the Tivoli for the Kansas City area. Heck, I might not have even known it was appearing in any theatres if not for this email.  Luckily the Tivoli is within reasonable driving distance for moi–who, as you’ve all guessed by now has the “yappy yaps” this morning.

Chasing Ice opens December 21, 2012. http://www.tivolikc.com/upcoming.html

Hey, they’re even offering The Nutcracker performed by the Royal London Ballet on December 23.  Yes, a movie theatre will show a ballet film. If that’s not enough to raise your highbrows a notch or two then maybe The Royal Opera of London show of The Marriage of Figaro on December 30 will do the trick.

Oh and a film ticket stub will knock 50% off the price of one drink at the Broadway Cafe –which, in my opinion, offers The Best Cafe Mocha–bar none– anywhere. Definitely the best I’ve tasted in several states. (No, sorry, folks trying to staff the little upstart coffee shop in Pierre, SD, that’s not a legit cafe mocha you’re proffering. Not yet anyway. Keep trying though. Practice may pay off in time.) Broadway Cafe site http://www.broadwayroasting.com/

So, guess where I will venture, safe driving conditions being extant, during the week of December 21-27? Yep. I’ll be chasing Chasing Ice with a delicious cafe mocha accompanied by a honey soaked croissant.  I’ll be enjoying what this world offers while it lasts.

Now, about all the ice chasing and film festival awards and climate change etc. . . .

“sudden panic”

full moon sighs

dew kissing toes

soles sinking deeper in delight

ahhh wet cool grass night

but

wait

Milky Way gone?

 

stillness

during dawn

a ton of words

waiting for ink

        eloped with the morning fog

leaving

   just these few in a tiny green glass dish

  caressed by passing wind

                 and a gentle as moonshine kiss

New Territory

finding void your space

shatters glass hands

numbed core cracks

incredulous

    there is something left to break

suddenly everything known about hurt is surpassed

                                                                        strip skin

                                                                        bleed bones

                                                                        dissect organs

all preferable to this deep freezing fissuring
