Lot's Wife
Her mistake was literally
looking back at the holocaust of hearth.
The blood rushed from her
in the horrific centrifuge
spinning down minerals
into a block of salt.
We know no other name for her -
a possession in a land of sin,
a pillar in a has-been community,
our cautionary parable.
Recent excavations unearth tablets
of this tale and others
but of the running woman
stopped a few meters from inhospitality
nothing.
Who'd want to know
grass refused to grow
at her feet and
dappled deer returning
to parched earth
tongued her new essence
unto death?
Karla
rev. 5/24/09
This is a really good one, Karla, that never got a proper showing first time
around. I came across it while flipping through the archives for something
else, and plan to go through it (maybe in-depth, hold your breath!)... but I
see it as a good comparison to "Mind Games".

1) The title could be seen by some as telling /too much/ as "Mind Games" was
judged, yet to me that works just fine.

2) There's also that universal element that I detect from "Mind Games", as
well as the fact that it rises well above the mundane who-shot-John soap
opera confessional to the level (imo) of poetry as Art.

Anyone want to give this one the going-over with me, Karla herself, even?

Do you have another poem? Eva
Here's one of my favorite poems by Karla (I'm sure she won't mind me
reposting it here, if she does I'll be glad to delete it):

Trick of Light

Tonight, under the bursting moon
I wrote this poem about waltzing with you
how I felt like Meryl Streep in your arms
surrounded by japanese lanterns
the scent of jasmine rising around us from
little yellow-white heads crushed under our heels
and in the heat of writing it
I hear your voice again, liking me
or a Meryl me
because just like the songs
moonlight does that
and I'm remembering
champagne glittering
how we danced till the music stopped
the violins packed away, napkins folded
and I was Meryl Streep under a bursting moon
a trick of light
your love.

No, you can't, Goober. Your posting of Karla's poem
now exists in UseNet and you cannot delete it. IOW,
your violation of Karla's copyright is now a matter

I used to think that all these exchanges were just
juvenile name-calling contests, in which case they would
be truly pitiful, but I've come to the conclusion that they
must be some sort of staged performance-art, in which
case they are truly brilliant. Absolutely superb.

Hold that thought, though, about Lot's wife.
We must be tuning in to a shared frequency in

The proper and legal thing to do would have been

Copyright -- it's not just a word.
Years ago, it used to be okay to re-post a poem for discussion in the same
group where it was originally posted. I was an instigator of that myself
back when I would try to have some fun with National Poetry Month. I'd make
a post asking folks to post their favorite poem by another contributor of
the group, urging proper attribution, of course. I think many of us thought
of r.a.p. or a.a.p.c. as a kind of a writers' group where our work was in
progress, and our posting of it here was not publishing it, per se. That
doesn't change much with respect to copyright. I don't know if it's been
ruled on one way or another, that is, are poems, stories, flash fiction,
etc. posted to Usenet "published"? I got different answers to that
questions from the legal beagles. Do you know? What do you base your post
on?

Of course, the law and courteous behavior are two different things. It
would have been nice to have been asked before the fact. And along that
line, I continue to object to and dislike the posting of my poems to groups
I didn't originally post to, such as alt.poetry and alt.arts.poetry. I
dislike that people cross-post posts from r.a.p. to a.a.p.c. when the
original poster didn't post it there. If I wanted to participate in that
group, I would do so. But what's the use! I'm a broken record on that
score.

Well, to start with, my apologies for moving "Trick of Light" over
here, where what I did was respond in the "Lot's Wife" thread., Karla.
I actually had the "Trick of Light" thread pulled up, and was planning
to simply respond there, then I got carried away when Eva asked if
there were other poems by you. I definitely thought she'd dig "Trick
of Light", and went into my newsreader where all these threads are
still fresh, and was going to post a reply in that thread, bringing it
back here, legit.

Then I thought that to save possible confusion for Eva, who I'm not
sure is catching the full scope of the newsgroup, I just moved it here
where I knew she already was, and could see it. Anyway, I know you
know I have no intentions of "stealing" your poem or taking credit for
it in any way, and I'll certainly not be reposting any of your poems
like that again, Karla.

This is a really good one, Karla, that never got a proper showing first time
around. I came across it while flipping through the archives for something
else, and plan to go through it (maybe in-depth, hold your breath!)... but I
see it as a good comparison to "Mind Games".
1) The title could be seen by some as telling /too much/ as "Mind Games" was
judged, yet to me that works just fine.
2) There's also that universal element that I detect from "Mind Games", as
well as the fact that it rises well above the mundane who-shot-John soap

Hi Will, I came back to see if it would work so that i could tell you
I liked your poem. Eva
Are you Clockbrain, AKA Honest John, or does centurytel.net have two
spamming fuckwits among its customers?
It's impossible for Cockbrain to post without homophobic innuendos.

That's a Usenet tradition at this point, after all... sure to draw

Lot's Wife
Her mistake was literally
looking back at the holocaust of hearth.
The blood rushed from her
in the horrific centrifuge
spinning down minerals
into a block of salt.
We know no other name for her -
a possession in a land of sin,
a pillar in a has-been community,
our cautionary parable.
Recent excavations unearth tablets
of this tale and others
but of the running woman
stopped a few meters from inhospitality
nothing.
Who'd want to know
grass refused to grow
at her feet and
dappled deer returning
to parched earth
tongued her new essence
unto death?
Karla
rev. 5/24/09
This is a really good one, Karla, that never got a proper showing first time
around. I came across it while flipping through the archives for something
else, and plan to go through it (maybe in-depth, hold your breath!)... but I
see it as a good comparison to "Mind Games".
1) The title could be seen by some as telling /too much/ as "Mind Games" was
judged, yet to me that works just fine.
2) There's also that universal element that I detect from "Mind Games", as
well as the fact that it rises well above the mundane who-shot-John soap
opera confessional to the level (imo) of poetry as Art.
Anyone want to give this one the going-over with me, Karla herself, even?

Do you have another poem? Eva
Here's one of my favorite poems by Karla (I'm sure she won't mind me
reposting it here, if she does I'll be glad to delete it):

Trick of Light

Tonight, under the bursting moon
I wrote this poem about waltzing with you
how I felt like Meryl Streep in your arms
surrounded by japanese lanterns
the scent of jasmine rising around us from
little yellow-white heads crushed under our heels
and in the heat of writing it
I hear your voice again, liking me
or a Meryl me
because just like the songs
moonlight does that
and I'm remembering
champagne glittering
how we danced till the music stopped
the violins packed away, napkins folded
and I was Meryl Streep under a bursting moon
a trick of light
your love.

Sure... I see that "Ghost Whisperer" has been on the air for quite a
while... here's the Wiki article you might enjoy reading, not sure if
you've seen it:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_Whisperer

"...The series follows the life of Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love
Hewitt), who has the ability to see and communicate with the dead.
While trying to live as normal a life as possible, Melinda helps them
pass over to the other side by working as a paranormal investigator,
sometimes dealing with people who push her away, and disbelieve her
ability.[3]..."

Oh yeah, I know you're a big Dark Shadows fan, here's the link to the
newsgroup for that show, Eva:

See you soon.

Well, I was just going to post my November column, which includes one
of my poems, called "Miss Alice Crenshaw", so this looks like a good
opening for that.

This is from Playgrounds, an art-music zine distrubuted locally

To The Magic Store by Will Dockery

Cancer Benefit at Del Ranch in Smiths

Del Ranch is one of those classic rural honky tonks that probably
would have fit in nicely in your first book, if you wrote one, just up
the road from Smith's Station High School, which Conway Twitty
attended for a while... the big promos coming next month will be on
the 2nd Schryl Carden Breast Cancer Benefit there on December 13th. I
played that one with Conley last year, and it was great fun, should be
even better this year, I'd wager:

http://www.ledger-enquirer.com/392/story/539130.html

Also, Del Ranch is launching a new open mic every Sunday night, hosted
by another of our illustrious Folk Heroes, Henry Conley... come sing,
or listen, and enjoy the unique DR experience, out in beautiful
Smith's Station, Alabama.
Battle of the Bands Diabetes Benefit November 21
Xi Theta Sorority is hosting a battle of the bands to benefit diabetes
on November 21 at Co;umbus State University. If you have a band you
would like to enter, ANY genre (country, rap, rock, metal, gospel),
please email ***@tsystsol.com for details.
The Return of a Folk Hero
Hope you'll have a look at the new song by the local leader of the
folk scene in Shadowville, Rick Edwards. This ranks in my top 10
favorite new songs of the year... and I can't even think of the other
nine yet. "The Forest In The Trees", by Rick Edwards.



If you wonder why we call him the Folk Hero, this is the place to
start.

Miss Alice Crenshaw

Little Victoria
stepped on a bumblebee,
near the sawmill millhouse.

Cousin Maxwell
saw it while sitting in a tree,
on the hill
across from Uncle Grouse.

Near the house of
Bullethead & Shorty...
Always late, never home,
they's a fighting,
they'll get home the best they can.
With some luck and
a Southern wind.

Shorty's chasing Bullethead
with a frying pan
full of chicken bones.
Jerked wire
someone tried to call the cops
on the telephone.

Sort of in the backyard
of the old waterpump house.
Near the canepatch,
Miss Crenshaw's creeping like a mouse.

She said some odd words,
seen them spit right out her mouth.

Everybody's watching television,
or Miss Crenshaw's hipshake.
She's a stroller in technicolor
up and down a dirt avenue
for goodness sake.

If you need a girl
you can converse...
She's a good listener
and she ain't quite loud!
But a looker in a crowd.

On a two stooler bike,
somebody easing down the path.

Near the house of
Bullethead & Shorty...
Working late at the mill again.
Scoop the sugar with cabbage,
wash it down with cold gin.

Never sure when the morning starts
or where it ends.

I recall a bit later,
when she shook her peaches for me.
Shady silver leaf maples,
and a lonesome persimmon tree.

Full moon and hay fever
schoolhouse looking like a Sphinx.
She's a sweetie,
her hair's like a chestnut minx.

Everybody's watching television,
or Miss Crenshaw's hipshake.
She's a stroller
up and down a dirt avenue.

If you need a girl
you can converse...
She's a good listener
and she ain't quite loud!

Trick of Light
Tonight, under the bursting moon
I wrote this poem about waltzing with you
how I felt like Meryl Streep in your arms
surrounded by japanese lanterns
the scent of jasmine rising around us from
little yellow-white heads crushed under our heels
and in the heat of writing it
I hear your voice again, liking me
or a Meryl me
because just like the songs
moonlight does that
and I'm remembering
champagne glittering
how we danced till the music stopped
the violins packed away, napkins folded
and I was Meryl Streep under a bursting moon
a trick of light
your love.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_Whisperer
"...The series follows the life of Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love

While trying to live as normal a life as possible, Melinda helps them

Heh... he's obsessed with "Will Dockery", and has been following me
around for years. If he wasn't such an obvious little cowardly midget,
he'd be scary, since he only lives a few miles away from me, over near
Macon, Georgia.

Anyway, you asked about my poetry, and here's a video of one of my
favorites, "Waking Up Now":

No one is obsessed with Will Dockery. That is merely a delusion created by
your narcisstic personality disorder and way-the-fuck-out-in-left-field ego.

No, you can't, Goober. Your posting of Karla's poem
now exists in UseNet and you cannot delete it. IOW,
your violation of Karla's copyright is now a matter
of record.

Remember: "Google Groups" is not "UseNet", it's just
an interface to UseNet.

And, idiot, you should not have posted Karla's poem
without her permission in the first place because
(and you claim to be the Know-All-of-Copyright-Law)
posting somebody's poetry without their permission
is a violation of their copyright.

Well, there's a fair use basis for doing it, since I reposted it as an
example of her work, and before I posted it I stated that if she
minded me posting it I'd delete it. Either way, I'm only part of the
way finished with the example, which i'll get to later.

Here's one of my favorite poems by Karla (I'm sure she won't mind me
But isn't it a violation of her copyright to publish her work without
her prior permission?
I just "published" your question without your prior permission. Did I
violate your copyright?
Well, I reposted Karla's poem from Usenet, back to Usenet, so it
hasn't been "published" anywhere, and I reposted it as for example
purposes, and for commentary, which I've provided, both of which are
fair use of the poem. And, I stated that I'd remove the poem if Karla
wanted me to, as quoted above.

Trick of Light
Tonight, under the bursting moon
I wrote this poem about waltzing with you
how I felt like Meryl Streep in your arms
surrounded by japanese lanterns
the scent of jasmine rising around us from
little yellow-white heads crushed under our heels
and in the heat of writing it
I hear your voice again, liking me
or a Meryl me
because just like the songs
moonlight does that
and I'm remembering
champagne glittering
how we danced till the music stopped
the violins packed away, napkins folded
and I was Meryl Streep under a bursting moon
a trick of light
your love.

Trick of Light
Tonight, under the bursting moon
I wrote this poem about waltzing with you
Okay, I have a bit more time now... just a bit.

Okay, everyone else says change these two lines, eh? Interestingly, my
comment on them is that they really work. You are not dancing under
the blazing moon (and we've sure had a classic June-moon-spoon of a
couple of days, I daresay, some of the coolest, pleasant nights in the
Deep
South June since 1985, I kid you not, and I was there, so I know), you
are /writing/
about it, filtering memory, reinventing the memory, making life into
art, or trying to. That's why the line "I wrote this poem about
waltzing with
you" just works, is great, and that's my comment on that.
Post by Will Dockery
how I felt like Meryl Streep in your arms
Now this part is the one I would change if it were me, which you're
not, of course, but bringing in a real (or almost real, as real as a
Hollywood
icon can be, anyway), cheapens the line, makes the image lazy, sort
of. Sort of like the critiques of my critiques of "Your poem reminds
me of...",and if this sort of thing doesn't work for critique, then it
sure shouldn't be acceptable in a poem, which is of course a much
higher form of art than comments /about/ poems.

"You made me feel..." beautiful? Sexy? Strong? Cool? Rich and famous?

A good lover, or dancer (perhaps the dancer in the poem could be
Dennis Hammes, but that's stretching... JK might use that, but not
here, not now) could and can
make someone feel that way. I'm reminded of a line I tossed,
coincidentally and interestingly (to me) last week where I felt like
Clark Gable... a stunning night in the Deep South can do things like
that, but it seemed lazy (or I could second-guess that it could or
would be judged so by critics) or at best a cheap and easy reference,
so it is gone. And my commenty is I think you ought to work on how
this person you wrote the poem to made you feel while dancing.

Define what it is like to "feel like Meryl Streep"... because it isn't
such an obvious thing, feels like... nothing. To me.

"You made me forget myself, you made me think I was someone else,
someone good.", is what the line reminds me of, from the old Lou Reed
song "Perfect Day", but I'm not trying to put words in your mouth.
Post by Will Dockery
surrounded by japanese lanterns
the scent of jasmine rising around us from
little yellow-white heads crushed under our heels
This isn't Meryl Streep to me, but Vivien Leigh in Streetcar, Japanese
Lanterns (smashed by Stanley) and scent of Jasmine, all there... "I
thought I was someone else, someone good.":



I know that "this reminds me of" isn't acceptable in poetry
commentary, but this is just too obvious.

And in my opinion better than a tired image of Meryl Streep. Leigh and
Brando, now /that/ is an image, dancing under a "hustling bustling
moon".
Post by Will Dockery
and in the heat of writing it
I hear your voice again, liking me
or a Meryl me
Yes, and back at the crib, writing about it, observing it from the
Fortress of Solitude, gone again, back to the lonesome act of poetry.
I like it, and that's my comment.
Post by Will Dockery
because just like the songs
moonlight does that

These kind of seem like padding, and I've done it enough to know it
when I see it... heh.

Tighten it, make better images, I know someone would say if someone
else had written this.

This is a really good one, Karla, that never got a proper showing first time
around. I came across it while flipping through the archives for something
else, and plan to go through it (maybe in-depth, hold your breath!)... but I
see it as a good comparison to "Mind Games".
1) The title could be seen by some as telling /too much/ as "Mind Games" was
judged, yet to me that works just fine.
2) There's also that universal element that I detect from "Mind Games", as
well as the fact that it rises well above the mundane who-shot-John soap
opera confessional to the level (imo) of poetry as Art.
Anyone want to give this one the going-over with me, Karla herself, even?

Her mistake was literally
looking back at the holocaust of hearth.
The blood rushed from her
in the horrific centrifuge
spinning down minerals
into a block of salt.
We know no other name for her -
a possession in a land of sin,
a pillar in a has-been community,
our cautionary parable.
Recent excavations unearth tablets
of this tale and others
but of the running woman
stopped a few meters from inhospitality
nothing.
Who'd want to know
grass refused to grow
at her feet and
dappled deer returning
to parched earth
tongued her new essence
unto death?

It's pretty quiet here right now, Eva, as it usually is. You just came
in at a wild time, with spammers like Orson running around, he comes
and goes, and is no big deal.

You asked about poetry, though, and though I have the words posted
here in the archives, here's a quick links to one of my favorites, I
call this one "Waking Up Now":



I'll locate the words and post them here, shortly, when I have more
time...

Their not having a life of their own could be the reason they're so
jealous of those of us who have had many lives of our own, pal.

Sure... I see that "Ghost Whisperer" has been on the air for quite a
while... here's the Wiki article you might enjoy reading, not sure if

Wikipedia is a joke, Will.
A lot like you, Orson?
A lot
"We know."
