nothing sez hapless like headline

Head depressed. Heart dark. Energy enervated. Brain dead. Sun gone. Cold coming. Money shrinking. Poetry readings receding. Art shows non-existent. Memoir ignored. Lady suffering inner demons of the profound and ethical.

I need an immediate fix of the absurdity, the philosophical playfulness, the enigmatic encodings, the fun findings, the silly sayings, the seriously stupid, and the provocatively pedantic ponderings of my hapless headlines helplessly harvested from the insanity currently known as year 2010.

So my choices today will be gentle, silly, subtle, perhaps even thoughtful — with only an occasional stick in the eye to keep my curmudgeon status active.

    “Homeless Man Calls 911 From Hot Tub, Asks For Cocoa And A Hug”

    When I was in Spokane this summer a homeless guy on the corner of a major intersection was holding a sign that said “Need $100 for Motel Room”. And now I find that your guy is in a hot tub, so I’m thinkin’ that homelessness isn’t quite what it used to be. It’s a little hard to imagine Woody Guthrie being inspired by these guys:

    “This tub is your tub / this tub is my tub

    I need my room cleaned / I need a back rub……”

    If we get this 2nd annual Snoetry up and running, I’d love to have you and Lady read for us again, if interested. We’ve been offered a cool venue in Erie, but I’d really like to do it closer to home this time if we can find the right place to do it – maybe even in Lorain County. I’m trying to raise the poetic profile of my home county. Lots of poets here, but we go to Cleveland for poetry or get looked at as Cleveland poets – nothing wrong with that at all – but I want to cultivate a scene here more local to me, too. Got some “poetential” event irons in the fire besides Snoetry – and you’re among the first on my list to ask to read.
