The Perfect Tear

"Disappointment feels divine, sadness tastes like peaches." --Mark Tarallo

"I'm just out to find the better part of me...it's not easy..." --Five for Fighting

The Perfect Tear

Enough WORld
Wake.
How Chainbreak.
Throw light useLESS.
Bomb exquisite.

The poet's DNA requires
A freedom of word.
Nothing else would ever
Fit on this body.

Tell me Love,
Do you finally believe the WOLf
of me?
(Devours sharp.)

On the day the sun went out
Stones are skipping.
Skipping.
Why did you come to the sea...
another heart break?

NOW
cry me the Pefect Tear.
Say, "Good night."
Then turn out the lights.

Goat's Head Soup: Randall Jarrell: "The Obscurity of the Modern Poet"

Goat's Head Soup: Randall Jarrell: "The Obscurity of the Modern Poet": "So this essay doesn't quite fit the 'new' criteria, but it's an important essay within my poetic sensibility and still applies as much now as it did in the 1950s."

Nice blog. One of many new poetry sites I've just ran into. This blog is dedicated to inspiring poets to write. An eclectic collection.

Life Span of New Comics

"These days, you might get six issues before they fold up shop because it's not a blockbuster right out of the gate. The ironic thing is... knowing that we might only have six issues, we're still wasting space, padding stories, taking forever to make our point. "

—Writer Joe Casey on the short life span of most new comics

Powell's City of Manga

Powell's City of Manga - 12/6/2005 - Publishers Weekly: "When you have manga that are seven inches high compared to maybe 10 inches for your average trade paperback superhero collection, you can't maximize your shelving space. By separating out the two genres, we've been able to display a manga serial as whole set, instead of putting out two or three volumes and storing the rest overhead."

French Comics

L'Association Brings French Comics to the U.S. - 12/6/2005 - Publishers Weekly: "In the last few years, there's been a small flood of French-language art comics being translated into English. But the French comics revolution of the last decade and a half didn't originate with big French publishing companies like Delcourt and Dargaud; it came from the underground—specifically a small, artist-run publisher known as L'Association."

Consider

"You know gray is my favorite color, I felt so symbolic yesterday." --Counting Crows

"Never enough time. And it's always later than you think." --Warren Ellis


Beating

Consider tonight...
There is still something inside.

The
Thing
That
Forces
You
Awake
Each
Morning

Isn't glamorous
Or poetic.

But that flame
Keeps me
Alive.

Read: Number Ones

"...They need to be inspired. And let's face is Superman--the last time you really inspired anyone--was when you were dead." --Batman/Infinite Crisis #1

"Before everything else, getting ready is the secret of success." --Henry Ford


When I was young few joys compared to riding my bike down to the Rexall and buying a couple of comic books with my five dollar allowance. Only thing that's changed today, is I go to a comic shop to get my fix.

There's something about comics above all other books that sweeps me away from whatever else is going on in my life. It's a love affair of escapism, I love everything about comic books. The look, the feel, the smell, the art, and especially the stories.

Purchased a few titles yesterday.

The Losers #30 was shock and awe ride of true mercenary fiction. Movies need this kind of smart action. Another traitor lies among the Losers and someone dies as the cancelled comic closes in for the final wrap up.

These days I don't usually buy superhero comics so the past couple of weeks have been out of the ordinary. I love first issues and you can't go wrong with Captain Atom: Armageddon which answers the question of what happens when a DC hero crosses over into the Wildstorm universe. The answer might surprise you.

They say the wait is over but I found Infinite Crisis #1 to be a bit of a let down other than the nice piece of dialogue at the top of this post. Friendships, teams, and lives and destined to be destroyed in the biggest epic to hit the DCU in twenty years but for me the question is will it make for better stories? I certainly hope so.

DMZ #1 is about an American civil war. But not really. It's about civilian life under fire...something I don't know if we Americans even think about as our soldiers fight in foreign lands. Perhaps the resonation in this story comes when the troops "secure" the crash site to extract Matty the hero. Nothing is as terrible as a war.

And while I'm thinking about it, has anyone out there either worked in a comic shop or sold comics/owned a comic shop for a living? If so, I'd lke to chat with you.
