Lapse into Arcs in Deference to Circumstance

  • Once every post at this blog had a Fleabus photo. Oranger, sweeter as she ages.
  • Photo taken Wednesday night, >> deleted bleggalgaze << though photo stays.
  • I heard this new David Byrne (w Eno) song, and fuck does it suck.
  • It's...          I'm old, I try to hike, try to read, like I'm 35, who am I to...
  • So's Earthgirl! It's her birthday, if you love her and have the numbers please send her hello!

All our roads go nowhere.
Maps are curled
To keep the pavement definitely
On the world.
All our footsteps, set to make
Metric advance,
Lapse into arcs in deference
To circumstance.
All our journeys nearing Space
Skirt it with care,
Shying at the distances
Present in air.
Blithely travel-stained and worn,
Erect and sure,
All our travels go forth,
Making down the roads of Earth
Endless detour.


  1. 0) that's a good-looking cat and a nice photograph

    1)on the topic of harsh words, here's something from the washington examiner:

    Former Mexican President Vicente Fox had some harsh words for President Trump after he reportedly referred to Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations as “shithole countries” during a meeting with lawmakers.

    “.@realDonaldTrump, your mouth is the foulest shithole in the world,” Fox tweeted in response on Thursday. “With what authority do you proclaim who’s welcome in America and who’s not. America’s greatness is built on diversity, or have you forgotten your immigrant background, Donald?”

  2. Thankee, sir, fer th' Linky.

    >> Fleabus = Orange.
    >> Byrnie: Talking Heads' was the apex, I think; his solo stuff disappointed. Just sayin'.
    >> Appaled-achia: I'm stunned at the intensity with which some of those who have suffered most at the hands of Our System love and revere Our Dear Leader, because he Dittoheads whatever they hear in Little Rupert's vomatorium.
    >> Happy Birthday: Paint On!
    >> Refuse to read anything Murdoch. Plus, it's behind the Paywall, dude.
    >> Tom's excellent stuff, as always.
    >> The Bosch Smurf paintings: Hell is full of Smurfs with pitchforks.

    1. Generally I agree about (the non-Iris) Murdoch, but Crispy's a bud.

    2. If C's a Bud, then; well. It's the J'Accuse!-ocene.
