this machinery of grace

Posted by Rich Magahiz Sun, 30 Dec 2007 04:45:00 GMT

an outer ring of heck
smelling of
strawberries

her hands full of cloud tissues of scorn

Lee’s redoubt
where dark lines find
their griefs multiply

an ounce of ash and that too soon gone

tender to the bone
our enemies
our hearts’ ease

how long this machinery of grace?

her life list:
a spidery red hand,
then nothing

the sea sucks at the rock… pink-flushed foam

first bacteria
then fungi
kiss their host

the coldest flame: we all wear our pyres

Welcome to past Frabjous Times readers

Posted by Rich Magahiz Sat, 29 Dec 2007 14:45:00 GMT

I have moved my creative blogging over to this blog, as you can see, with its fancy new Web 2.0 features. (Integrated comments, for instance.) I hope you’ll like it.

I’ll keep the past archives online at the original site – see the sidebar here if there is something you’d like to check out from the past four years or so.

At the same time, you’ll notice that I’m starting a brand new Wordpress-hosted blog at this time as well ”Worlds in the Uppper Right Hand Corner,” which will focus on my collection of maps on postage stamps.

The power of observation

on his pillow
a funny stain...
his flesh wife just frowns

a place full of heavenly bodies

the son of man
wore the Mark of Cain --
I tased him

disappointment
made plain – our gifts
return themselves
he wrote her songs –pitched too high to hear
For Christmas, I gave Pam a robot. I think she’s keeping it.

Against the blackest sky

solsticetide –
at the top hangs down
one bright red ball

Bethlehem sleeps: a daisy cutter


Mars will be unusually bright this Christmas Eve and the moon will be shining full
How the Daisy-Cutter works

It came one morning

Posted by Rich Magahiz Tue, 18 Dec 2007 14:02:00 GMT

Dashing
through the dark house
in his droopy flannels
he cries “giddyup, giddyup,
let’s go!”
