Poems Written up to the end of March 2011

POEMS

1.

Matisse and the Fauves

did for color

What Picasso and Braque

did for form.

2.

though I

live alone

I still own

two chairs

3.

a late supper

alone in the cafe

clink go glasses

in another booth

4.

paper dolls

holding hands!

5.

a light

in the fog

6.

gazing at the Moon

for an hour

It turns to a pillow

zzzzzzzzzzzzz …

7.

the old man

takes little steps

the young boy

skips

8.

step

step

and a jump

between

9.

they’re making a sequel to Hamlet

this time it’s a horror film

in ‘The Dane Rises’, Hamlet’s Ghost

raises his bloody skull

to take revenge again!!!

10.

Don’t underestimate

the importance of rebellion.

It’s a way of growth

for both the rebels

and all of those

rebelled against.

 

SAYINGS

 

I’m starting two publishing companies, Black Inc, and it’s subsidiary ‘Write’ Out

 

On the Mainstream Media – I could get more hard news from a mood ring!

 

If time is real, is anti time real too?

 

Combo Style – My new type of guitar playing. Bass, lead, and rhythm, all at once.

 

The future of music is not more of the past.

 

When others walked, she skipped.

 

On Obesity: Breast milk the world’s best diet drink.

 

“Taint Modern – if the Tate (Art Museum) was really interested in new art, they’d talk about the backlash against the old art that is going on now.

 

Translations – like a kiss through glass.

Two Songs About Dallas: Dallas/ Pegasus LOST TAPES series

March 25, 2011

The LOST TAPES series. (Music from the 80’s and 90’s re-found.)

Two songs about Dallas:  The Lost Tape:  DALLAS (THIS TOWN LIES IN THE FUTURE),  and  PEGAUS  an instrumental saluting the symbol of Dallas.

Dallas  may play a key role in music and the arts of the future. Here are two songs heralding that future.

DALLAS (THIS TOWN LIES IN THE FUTURE)

This was one of my songs on the 12 By 12 co-op series in the 80’s. This talks about Dallas as possibly being important in the future of music.  This was recorded when bands hadn’t yet become generic sounding – all instruments and vocals by me. Note the chorus.

In the 2nd verse I refer to two friends David Renke and Scott Jacob Loehr that played a key part in the 12 By 12 Series.  When you listen, note the intro. The song begins with the – winds of change.

This was also the song used on the Rush Martin Radio Show when I suggested a contest -indie versus corporate music challenge. He played some forgettable  Aerosmith song, that sadly won.

PEGAUS

This instrumental original is from my first CD “30”. It is a salute to Dallas and its unofficial symbol Pegasus the flying horse. Seems to fit the Dallas theme.

Note the ending chord.

Poems

March 17, 2011

Poems Written up to the middle of March 2011

POEMS

1.

I wrote a novel

of the sea

so realistic

that I insisted

each copy sold

was sopping wet

 

“Ahoy ye salts

feel the spray!

Ahoy ye salts

get on board!”

 

2.  (Head brain and Enteric Nervous System)

 

more and more

it seems to me

we are creatures

of two brains

 

3.

In the sun my shadow

began to melt … away

 

4.

Day

gave way.

Night

took flight.

 

5.

3 gates I passed by:

the milky white gate of the creamy Moon,

the iron rust gate of red, red, Mars,

the golden yellow gate of the Sun.

3 gates I passed by.

 

6. Children’s poem

 

Nat, Nat the neighbors cat,

wore a hideous sailor’s hat.

Tipped his hat and took a bow.

What’s that cat up to now?

Looked in the mirror and liked what he saw.

3 fat mice and a chained up dog!

 

7.

you manipulate

the doll under you

while dangling under

your own puppeteer.

 

8.

why is the rabbit white?

why is the crow black?

why does the sun shine?

why is the night dark?

 

 

SAYINGS

 

Media Pundits always say the same thing:’ We’ve got to do something, but I assure you nothing will work!’

 

Breast Feeding – perfected over millions of years of evolution.

 

A drop of vanilla sets a mood.

 

Books are closed most of the time.
