I am an experienced writer who has worked across a variety of mediums including: screenplay, script editing, prose, poetry,and novelization. I am particularly interested in psychogeography and the scope it gives both academics and creative writers to effectively trade elements of their fields.

Billie Holiday, Bird and Me

Apr. 2, 2012 7:40 am
Categories: None

We went to the seaside,

recuperation

Time away from prying

proprietorial newsprint

Billie was calm

Bird carried his horn

a faraway look of impending doom

Me, I could only look on

in disgust

As history

written by the victors

came too bloody late

to save this pair

my musical saviours

Tears blinded me

as I left them

Old albums discarded

Coney Island

October almost defeating

almost crushing the last spirit

the fading humanity

as the broken records

the broken lives

entwined

as The Fall mocked

mocked the impotent salt water

on my face

in my eyes

shorelines of indifference

I lit my last smoke

and waited for the silent return

to the Caledonian cringe

my own particular national curse

No Worries, We Are NOT Vulnerable To The OpenSSL Bug

We do not use OpenSSL here at BestThinking.com or ThinkerBooks.com. No need to worry or change passwords here because of the widely-publicized Heartbleed Bug. We have suffered two short outages recently presumably because much of the Internet transport infrastructure does rely on OpenSSL and they have been updating their systems.
