The Wet Sheets

Warning: this piece contains strong language

A sliver of glass

I leapt

from my Father’s

eye reflecting

a Mother that

didn’t exist.

Cigarette butts rose

to Heaven, thunder

formed my torso.

Dust blew through an

umbilicus and

collected to

form fingers

and lips.

Here is my birth:

In the ghettos of

Charleston my

Daddy beat off

and I coagulated

on the ceiling.

Now bound in

cords of placenta

endorphin seeps

through

my veins

and I breath.

I Wear the Sun

i want to strip
& spread a blanket
on the Boulevard
in Santa Monica
and sip a Coke
and wear Dark Glasses
and bleach the tips
of my hair
and pretend
everyone thinks
i wear the sun

Blogging: Ever Lose a Post or Two?

Update 8:19pm

Lord knows I’ve had some recent WordPress woes and was most unhappy about the loss of the re-blog button so I did complain to the WordPress gods who fixed the unhappiness with a sledgehammer.

The upshot is the tech moved my blog to a different server which restored
‘reblog’ and broke everything else.

I’m laughing , really I am.

Any media installed while my blog was on the other server
is gone.

The blog is an unholy nest of missing image links so I have to go
through each post.

It’s a nightmare — but, on the bright side — I get to rebuild my blog.

I’m going to do alot of reblogs for the rest of the week because not
doing it feels like a waste.

Update 6:57pm.

When the re-blog button was restored to Art by Rob Goldstein; I lost a month’s worth of posts. I also lose the formatting when I hit ‘post’ or update’.

I will restore the Feature of Hugh W. Roberts tomorrow.

In the meantime the rest of the blog is a complete mess.

But at least I can do reblogs. (yay! :))

Blogging lesson learned today?

Do backups.

Thanks for bearing with me as I reconstruct the blog.
