The Sign of the Black Sun — cakeordeathsite

Filed under: Uncategorized — namelessneed @ 9:25 am

My thoughts and as a consequence my dreams have been occupied by Prague lately, (a place I have never visited, incidentally), the city of Emperor Rudolf II with his court of alchemists, magicians, scientists and artists; where Dr John Dee and his medium Edward Kelley conjured up a vast array of angels in a Aztec […]

Abattoir or Slaughterhouse? How Words Influence Our Perceptions — Rerouted Writer

Filed under: Uncategorized — namelessneed @ 9:03 am

Abattoir – from the French abattre, ‘to fell’. As you would fell a tree to build a shed. Slaughter – from Old Norse slátr ‘butcher’s meat’; related to slay. As you would slay your enemies on the battlefield. Words with differing etymologies to describe the same thing, that each rest differently on the ear. It’s […]

How to Abide on Queue / G. Paul Randall

Filed under: Uncategorized — namelessneed @ 12:56 pm

be calmer than an earlobe
but alert to subtle sound
quiet as a muscle twitch
as sterling as a pound
be lofty like the heavens
as consistent as a judge
unattached as fleeting clouds
be disinclined budge
reflective like a polished tile
be brighter than a flame
stoic as a VP’s portrait
valid as a claim
right like rain, and true as grit
determined as a dog
be quiet like a bell rope
and well rested as a log
be patient as a telephone
and sounder than a ring
stiller than a sheeted corpse
but proper, like a king
be ready like a boxer’s glove
for when they call it out
a name upon the intercom
it’s you, there is no doubt

providing that my night’s POV,
(incited & incensed,
advancing instances of
ghosts and guesses,)
doesn’t reach ridiculous,
might you see me assembling a way…
tonight’s sweeping trick of keeping
trembling at bay.
Always, again.


.I’ll pretend to care about Everything
If you’ll see that I freely can
Call out to nothing in the way, an’
Call out to nothing in the wind.




“No, no, no, no! Come, let’s away to prison.
We two alone will sing like birds i’ th’ cage.
When thou dost ask me blessing, I’ll kneel down
And ask of thee forgiveness. So we’ll live,
And pray, and sing, and tell old tales”
from “King Lear”

It’s not only at night
One ought to be quiet
So as not to .startle
A sleepwalking man
So you stay still
Mostly I still do
I wouldn’t awaken
A sleepwalking man
He’s steering past scenery
He’s deaf to the dreadful din
It’s as if imbedded in him
An old ghost holes up
And mostly he still goes
All lost.
He’s explosive
World wrecking
But mostly he’s expecting
All lost.
