At the Winter Light Inn...


... it couldn't have been all that bad.


Theo Boehm said...

There's a certain slant of light,
On winter afternoons,
That oppresses, like the weight
Of cathedral tunes.

Heavenly hurt it gives us;
We can find no scar,
But internal difference
Where the meanings are.

None may teach it anything,
'Tis the seal, despair,-
An imperial affliction
Sent us of the air.

When it comes, the landscape listens,
Shadows hold their breath;
When it goes, 't is like the distance
On the look of death.

—Emily Dickinson

But we all know that, right?

Theo Boehm said...

And, yes, it does seem that bad, just now.

I used to resort to porn and naughty stories to satisfy my salacious voyeurism, and to satiate my desire to peek into the dark hedonistic depths of humankind.

Now I just read appellate court decisions.

So much more juicy! And they're real!

"It's 3am and your children are safe and asleep. Who do you want answering the phone?

Over on the right side of the wall, I can barely see the outline of three letters. An "n"... an "i".........
