Light dimming as we approach 4:30. Inside at home after walking around the neighborhood wearing my heavy coat, scarf and gloves. Two tacos at Oaxaca Taqueria on Greenwich Ave. Two books checked out of the Jefferson Market Libary.

Hair Today, Hair Tomorrow by Michael Musto

My comment to Daily Musto at villagevoice.com:

I saw the movie 3-4 times when it came out in 1979 as an impressionable 17 year old and have listened to the music since then. It powerfully opened my 17 year old eyes wide, wide, wide to two defining American hypocrisies: 1. Racial Inequality and 2. Official Government Lying to the People. I was profoundly hurt and ended up dealing with this new found knowledge by getting high on "you know what" for the next 9 years. After various breakdowns, recovery and parenthood I found myself last night sitting in the Delacorte Theatre with my 14 year old daughter seeing the actual stage show of Hair for the first time.

From the first "When the moon is in the 7th House ..." to the last "Let the sunshine in" I relived all the "new told lies" I've experienced over the years. I hope that somehow I can help the present young generation deal with the question: "How can they try to end this beauty?". Maybe because of Hair, there are a few less of "they" and a few more of the tribe.

Enhanced Interior Gateway Protocol

slowly spiraling
tangle zoological intentions

speech passive
universe pressed across

of principled
melodies hushed tickle

orchestrations of
dag-blasted nameless opacity

Fortunate Sheep

Apr. 20th, 2008 | 05:05 pm

wrap frailties
round yonder oaks

their cares
cut with rhythmic

methinks quite
distinct oblivions enjambed

hands trace
routes modify fear

Anticipating Nightfall

Feb. 18th, 2008 | 11:26 am

drank the
dew glimmering fattened

silent earth-lit
heart wrapped souvenir

across receding
absence perched there

into gritty
elsewheres of shadow

In Finite Frame

might veer
toward a thousand

afternoons clenched
in examples evidently

figures saying
two names wavering

naturally sleep
reels peter out

Out of the Way

Oct. 28th, 2007 | 11:50 pm

to riversides
long-lost overburst afternoons

when written
from timidity stuttering

reverse that
vast presence simply

these edges
even and absurd
