Birthday Tribute

It’s likely/ It could be

That when Leonard Bernstein,

At his piano bench…

It was very late when he,

In a creative trance,

Had opened an envelope

From a Mr. Stephen Sondheim,

And started to work on

A musical phrasing for

“There’s a place for us”,

He eyedropped a gold teardrop

Into a test tube, & heaven reacted,

 

& now can make me ache

20,000 late nights after

.

Happy birthday, Mr.Stephen Sondheim

Sounds of the night

“Here Comes The Night” – Van Morrison

The Hawkline Monster

Do you ever listen to the sounds of the night? I do. It speaks to me like the daytime never will. Not that the daytime cannot speak; I merely do not understand enough of its language.

As a child, I feared the night noises. Of course, that’s only to be expected. After all, a great many of them ten to be unsettling to an already-frightened ear.

All those clinks and clatters, those shatterings and chimings. Just where could they be coming from? And just what could be causing them?

Is there a stranger in the house, or a living shadow stealings its way stealthily along the walls? Perhaps something even worse. You always have to wonder to yourself whether it means any harm, and if so, why does it never just approach you and get it over with?

The world is not the same at night. It moves differently, it…

KATHY DARLING

whirling ’round & ’round again

’till yr off & away from where you were

as if   in incantations

as if  the world would surely be a blur

.

with cloudy comes this smoky delirium

it’s the same sixties christmas lights

Kathy Darling & I looked on from the linoleum.

White Album permeated but she delighted

in creating inner scenery for every metaphor

in a Paul Simon poem.

.

Kathy Darling needed to love me

but was too young to know love better.

.

Kathy Darling needed to weep openly

that school hallway. Tears fall way

hard on ink run.

.

As the room swings back to this stop,

“‘Kathy, I’m lost’  Though I know”/ stop

“I’m empty and aching and i don’t know why”/stop

I’m sorry/ stop/ I was too young/stop/ to know love better/stop

Dennis Potter (May 17,1935-1994/ RIP)

The English playwright/TV-dramatist, Dennis Potter was born May 17, 1935 (d. 1994, cancer). His widely acclaimed television dramas mixed fantasy and reality, the personal and the social. He was particularly fond of using themes and images from popular culture. Pieces such as The Singing Detective (1986) and Pennies from Heaven (1978) were astonishingly fresh genre-benders - mixing detective story, musical and realist drama (the title character in The Singing Detective suffers badly from psoriasis), helping bring postmodernism to the small screen… Photo: Michael Daks, 1986 - bromide fibre print (National Portrait Gallery, London)
