sunday 160, when the moon hits your eye


       Open the orbs, howl with the owl, hold the bones, pound the drone, oscillate outside upon onyx loam, observe halos, owe the original olden opal, honor the moon.

  1. After African  Richard, ghost lit full moon shines homeward.

  3. Prince Hal hath spake, and Falstaff; Cassius, Antony, Julius Caesar, et tu Brute; Billy Brown, Jimmy Hewitt, Papa Shakespeare who played the Griot for us, Sara, and the Queenly Anne all saw the naked Carrib King arise, robed only in the muscles of his back; George Mosconi's young son Jon fought more demons for a lifetime than the Prince of all that rots in Kronbog Castle then or San Francisco, Sacramento, and District of Columbia these days by the lights of our collective fathers' ghosts; and we received the blessing of Our Mother from her full, round face, a few lucky ones of us receiving, too, benedictions left with her for safe keeping and delivery by actors playing parts on stages far away -- but now 'tis time another bard, another William has his say, a long- haired, scruffy Texan (a word I'm loathe to say), who has some skill with lines, even those he's borrowed, not his own, and his nasally delivered phrase gives the order for the day: " . . . On the road again . . . "

  4. I would put a toothpick in it and have it as an appetizer but then the night would be too dark for most peoples comfort zone.

  5. I love that big pizza pie in the sky. Thanks for playing along with the Sunday 160. Come back and leave a link - I had to search my comment history to get back to you....maybe Blogger was just being a bitch, but links are helpful.
