Bucket List

This is the hand of an abscure new poet who is so dead that he hadn't been born yet much to his dismay but he's working on it, so that should give you a clue he's working on his own immortality, his sex is clueless and his death is only pecked out on a scareb's back looking for a tap-dance to interc...

Re: LIGHTNING ROD meets The BOOGER MONSTERS

Thank you all for reading. This is not an easy piece. It wasn't easy to write and I can imagine that reading it must take some stomach as well. I tried to deal with the subject of suffering without being too morbid about it. Thank you, Doreen, for posting our duet. Sometimes I almost forget that I e...

Note From Lightning Rod

To all of my S8 friends: I wanted to drop in and say a few words because I have not been my usual loquacious self lately. My sight makes it very hard for me to follow the community action because only with great effort can I see the gray text and font size, so I can't hear what everybody is saying. ...

Thoughts from The Poet's Eye on Universal Healthcare

The salary of a poet is meager even in the best of times. This is why it is good that the collateral job benefits of the bard are many, the world treats you as a guest and tells you its secrets, on occasion you dine at the most opulent tables, beautiful women smile upon you, etc. But we don't get he...

Re: Small Talk

Interesting observations, Veronica, et al Not being able to make small-talk has caused me to examine its qualities and purposes closer than I did before. I think it is inconsequential but also very important. I've always been very good at endearing myself to practically total strangers using glib an...

Small Talk

Small Talk I never really considered myself good at small-talk. I suppose it was my own sense of self-importance that made me reluctant to practice enough to excel at the art. I never paid that much attention to it, I suppose. But now that I can't do it anymore, I realize how important and useful t...

Re: Healing energy for Lightning Rod

Yes, Doreen you are one of the people I wanted to speak to about the albuterol thing. I knew that you used it every day and that it was a fixture in your life. What I have been observing and experiencing is involved with doses many magnitudes larger than you take. The effects are more akin to nitrou...

Re: Healing energy for Lightning Rod

Mon Fair Levo, I wakened from an albuterol dream to write you. The past two weeks have been filled with the most terrifying and profound dreams and awarenesses of my lifetime. I remember a face I saw several days ago. It is possibly the most perfect face I have ever seen on a human being. Naturally...
