state of my state

Two lines of supercells are moving through Arkansas tonight. One tornado after another, many hitting in the same places previous twisters hit hours before.

Thomas Merton

"Many poets are not poets for the same reason that many religious men are not saints: they never succeed in being themselves. They never get around to being the particular poet or the particular monk they are intended to be by God. They never become the man or the artist who is called for by all the circumstances of their individual lives. They waste their years in vain efforts to be some other poet, some other saint...They wear out their minds and bodies in a hopeless endeavor to have somebody else's experiences or write somebody else's poems."

"What we have to be is what we are."
— Thomas Merton

my muse

Usually invisible, last night my muse appeared 
long enough for me to take a picture of him.

Grunthos the Flatulent, Azgoth Poet Master of Kria. The Azgoths compose the second worst poetry in the Universe, an example of which follows. Please close your eyes now.

Caustic the bile that grumbles within,
Stirring amino acid reflux.
Belch thrust up and swallowed,
Forced down,
down, down,
Fermenting explosively,
Mere inches from underpants.

Nocturnal wanderers who won't accept the fact that they're dead and so torment the living.

Freelo Brasher

Armed with velvety voice and all manner of garfling snoozery, he enlists gullibles into the Trixxid Ground Forces.
Happy Birthday, Author Dub


Myrmidons were Achille's fiercely loyal warriors who were once ants.

It's been about three years since I put up my last stained glass window and that's too long. This one was built for a house in Little Rock's Quapaw Quarter.
