Down In The Cellar

I'm a big fan of Jan Švankmajer's work. This short film (click picture to watch) is my favorite, though Alice runs a very, very close second.

If I Do Something Bad, Will You Still Love Me?

We watched Firestarter again recently and were reminded what an awesome score by Tangerine Dream it has (click picture).

Also, George C. Scott plays one of the most bad ass villains EVER.

An hour of drone / ambient music by artist Robert Rich (click picture). I love pieces like this - they seem to be a world unto themselves that you could walk into and get lost in. A deep, vast landscape. Have a said that before? Quite possibly.

A good piece to relax / fall asleep to...if that's your thing.

Jay Shadow, I think you might dig.

So Many Bottles...

Love this quote:

A poem, as manifestation of language and thus essentially dialogue, can be a message in a bottle, sent out in the - not always greatly hopeful - belief that somewhere and sometime it could wash up on land, on heartland perhaps. Poems in this sense, too, are under way; they are making toward something.

Untitled - Latest Poem


These burnt words
shift, break,
ash in air.

All that is left
is what isn't there.

Dark like the new moon,
an eyeless socket.

Latest Poem: Witch


Here's what even the men who waited along the river understood:
that given time, I would slit their throats.

I was not my mother's daughter, no nursemaid
lives in this heart.
Briars took bits of flesh as they walked me to the water,
but I did not misstep
there is truth in what I do.

No flowers for the dead will grow here,
only the blood
that blooms from the cut.

I'll have my revenge.

I'll have the thing.

I'll see them impaled
on their own phallic hands.

In The Cellar

In The Cellar

They have all gathered in the dark,
tiny shoulders tight with intention.
They are planning
what you've feared most.

Drawing a map in the dust,
they've finalized the details.
Now just the wait,
minutes marking time.

Outside the window
the thrushes tremble.
