Holy macaroni?

ďIíve known rivers ancient as the world and older than the flow
of human blood in human veins.
My soul has grown deep like the rivers.Ē

from The Negro Speaks of Rivers, Langston Hughes

*

Ha! You think just because I start my blog with a potentially pretentious quote from a free-verse poem that Iím going to get all deep and meaningful on you? Puh-lease. This is ME weíre talking about. But I do like that bit about blood/veins. Itís cool. Very Pocahontas, like: ďAs the river cuts his path/Though the river's proud and strong/He will choose the smoothest course/That's why rivers live so long.Ē

Holy macaroni. I wonder if Macaroni could be holy, anyway? Like, the pasta. I'm pretty sure there would be some kind of religious law preventing it. I mean, otherwise they could have crazy priests and saints all over the place trying to make stuff holy. Holy nachos. Holy play dough. Holy filing cabinets.

And then thereíd just be utter confusion. Anarchy, and the like. Thereís be holy stuff all over the place, and people probably wouldnít be allowed to desecrate public spaces as much. I mean, everyone knows itís totally okay to graffiti on a bus interchange. But what if itís a HOLY bus interchange? Is it still okay then? Or would that bring the wrath of the potential-God-like-being down onto the earth, with the fire and the brimstone and all.

Ethical problem of the day. Think it over.

I was just sitting at the computer, just then, looking at pictures of peacock feathers, when I suddenly had the urge to wear clothing made out of a hessian bag. I know, how weird is that? And not in a Iím-so-alternative-weird-I-wear-environmentally-friendly-clothing-weird, but just regular weird. I was surprised at myself. Who really wants to wear hessian? Itís itchy and gross and a horrible colour, and sometimes itís kind of see through (because it has all those tiny holes).

And I couldnít even figure out why I had started thinking about wearing hessian bags. It was just suddenly like Ė pow! Ė thought in my brain, and I couldnít do anything to get rid of it. And now, even though I KNOW I donít really like hessian, Iím going, ĎMan, I could make the most awesome, shapeless sack-like dress out of hessian. I could like a poor person from biblical times. Yay.í

But speaking of peacock feathers Ė have you ever really looked at them? And I mean REALLY looked at them? Looked at them until all the shiny, iridescent luminescence has disappeared, and you can see all the scratchy brown bits and fibres that look really spiky to touch. Because itís kind of cool. It reminds me of the hairs on my arm, or my eyelashes in a microscopeÖ Itís like trees for little people, yanno?

I am totally in love with reading poetry and the 1998 modern movie adaptation of ĎGreat Expectations.í Poetry because itís fun, and the movie because it has an awesome green colour scheme and the paintings in the movie are awesome. (You should go look up this artist guy: Francesco Clemente. He rocks my world.)

Anyway, I was reading this Ď500 greatest poems of all timeí kind of thing and I found a whole bunch of sonnets and severely free-verse poems that I love. I also discovered that I hate E.E. Cummings, because I canít fricken understand what heís talking about. Iím just intolerant like that. And I love poets who write about other poets, especially when itís about following super-famous, super-dead poets down supermarket isles.

Anyway, my point is: poetry + green = green poetry. Oh, wait. I mean love.

Man, I swear, if Joss Whedon/Joss Whedonís child doesnít make more Buffyverse stuff, Iím just going to become a multi-millionaire and make it myself. (There could be even more teenage werewolves.)

Word of the day: queue
Colour of the day: green
Feeling of the day: that itch you get when your ear burns

ďThough shalt not kill; but needíst not strive
Officiously to keep alive.Ē

from The Latest Decalogue by Arthur Hugh Clough.
