Death and Transfiguration March 20, 2008

Posted by littlebangtheory in Love and Death, poetry.


In the twilight door of tomorrow, as

A long-haired preacher begs for the

Courage to meet His destiny, this

Wildly tilting world sits

Suddenly upright, transforming the

Snow white innocence of a

Season into a subtle

Suggestion of

is that bush’s pubic hair?

Babs’ – glad you asked!

Boys! Here I am to say what an incredible image that is and I walk in on a conversation worthy of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

Prickly pubes. Honestly.

Besides, George the First likes Babs smooth, y’all. It’s in his memoirs.

just too good! as to the hair, nope, i see nothing, i know nothing…

CR, I am stunned and moved. Oh how I thank you.

to me, that spiky photo sort of looks industrial, rather than natural…it could be a Tom Waits album cover…I like it

At least you removed the Coke can. Would’ve completely ruined the shot.

DCup, that’s just TMI, and a visual I’m not equipped to handle!

(I’m with you, sherry!)

Fran, I imagined you’d be otherwise occupied, but I had you in mind when I wrote this. The juxtaposition of Maudy Thursday and the Vernal Equinox seemed surreal to me, and I just had to say something about it.

PS – why yes, it could certainly be a Tom Waites cover. And you know how I love My Man Tom!

It’s actually a clump of thorns on a locust tree, taken that very day to suggest The Passion of The Christ.

And Randall, that’s one more allusion taking this thing away from where I had intended it to go. I’m normally all about Teh Crass, but this was meant to be very not-that.

I am digging the Tom Waits angle! Thanks PS!

And CR, I am having a quiet day – I did not attend the morning prayer today or the stations this afternoon. That said I will be at the service this evening.

Pax to all.

Oh! It’s time to dig out my CD of “Superstar”.

“What’s the buzz, tell me what’s a-happening
What’s the buzz, tell me what’s a-happening….”

Wonderful photo, Cuz.

Gorgeous, CR, thank you.

And today is Good Friday and the full moon!

I’m not happy with myself for having left such an insipid comment about the photo. I guess I was seeing it entirely from my own, narrow perspective. I also didn’t read your accompanying words. A lesson for me in taking a breath before typing and sending.

I do see the message you intended now and it’s a lovely one.
