Absence makes the heart grow fonder




Ruby and I went on a rare foray to B&N on Saturday and look what we found- Ruby's profile! Here's the original cover with partially obscured uncentered type and an OPAQUE silhouette before everyone started to weigh in on how Ruby's image should be transparent (which between you, me, and the rest of blogosphere, really damages the concept. Look at how ABSENT she is in the original?) The author wanted the type centered. Oh well- as Bob Marley said: "He who fight and run away, lives to fight another day."

I wrote a little poem this morning:

JUMPING DEATH

Suicides
remind me of astronauts.
Who but the alien brave amongst us
would want to fall
upwards,flung out
of our embracing orbit,
into that un-
encompassable,
well before the time
when we all,
by dint of cataclysm,
shall be forced to?

Elektroschutz


As if rampant inflation and the rise of The National Socialist Party weren't bad enough:
Elektroschutz in Bildern, 1931



So many ways to give yourself an electric shock in pre-war Germany....
