New Post ***the dance of asterisks ***
SPIT TOON is not a workshop
not a display case
not anything
succinct

we do what we do here


i come here starting with the thoughts:

let's see what's to read

(then from there maybe some sort of response,
maybe not,
maybe not today,
maybe tomorrow)

let's see if there's anything innarestin' goin' on in da hood

(rough translation: what besides poems have we today?)


i don't expect comments, crits, responses, whatevah
it's the unexpected that is
intriguing and fun here

and most of the time we have cogged pretty well together here

most of the time



i dunno

its the SPIT TOON performance of west side story and
the sharks and jets

have just pulled
switchblades

over

meter and

line break..............................


RIFF
The Jets are gonna have their day
Tonight.

BERNARDO
The Sharks are gonna have their way
Tonight.

RIFF
The Puerto Ricans grumble: "Fair fight."
But if they start a rumble,
We'll rumble 'em right.

BERNARDO
We're gonna hand 'em a surprise
Tonight.

RIFF AND JETS
We're gonna cut 'em down to size
Tonight.

BERNARDO AND SHARKS
We said, "O.K., no rumpus,
No tricks."
But just in case they jump us,
We're ready to mix
Tonight.

ALL
We're gonna rock it tonight,
We're gonna jazz it up and have us a ball!
They're gonna get it tonight;
The more they turn it on the harder they'll fall!

RIFF AND JETS
Well, they began it!

BERNARDO AND SHARKS
Well, they began it!

ALL
And we're the ones to stop 'em once and for all,
Tonight!


now thats entertainment.

and ..

i like it. it supports our awareness of ourselves and each other, pissed off, drunk, happy, huge, seductive, creative, stoned, sober, egotistical, full.
vacant boxes waiting to be filled with human breath.

i just think I wasted an entire day arguing tit for tat that would have been better spent watching the Dave the Barbarian fest on the Disney channel (Faffy is my hero)

Dave the Barbarian....

from Wikipedia:

Dave the Barbarian is a Disney animated television series, created and written by Doug Langdale, that premiered in January of 2004 on The Disney Channel. A year later, it began broadcasting on Toon Disney as well. The series takes place in the Middle Ages and centers on a powerful yet cowardly barbarian named Dave. Together with his sisters Fang and Candy and their Uncle Oswidge, the family is in temporary rule of the fictitious land of Udrogoth. The real king and queen (Their parents), Throktar and Glimia, are away "fighting evil" (though they make occasional appearances via crystal ball) and have left Candy in charge.

Much like its predecessors The Flintstones and the short-lived The Roman Holidays, Dave the Barbarian juxtaposes both the ancient and modern. Candy, for example, shops in the local mall and uses the crystal ball for online shopping sprees. Occasionally, the series even drops the so-called "fourth wall" with a character directly addressing the audience.

There is a narrator, known as the Storyteller -- sometimes referred to as the Narrator. He is voiced by Jeff Bennett. He plays a big part in the show, as he controls what happens in the story. He is able to talk to the characters of the show, and vice versa. In fact, he was once captured by Dark Lord Chuckles the Silly Piggy, and was forced to read narration where Dave loses to him.


FAFFY (my hero)

Faffy - The family's idiot, potato-shaped pet dragon. Unlike most dragons, he breathes lightning and is domesticated, plus he doesn't have a tail. He does possess a wild streak that can be revealed when around other dragons, particularly evil ones with rebel attitudes. Voice legend Frank Welker provides the voice of Faffy.

what I find exceedingly refreshing is this:
it seems to me no matter what the thread is about
be it poetry or whatever

no moderator ( at least not that I have seen )
jumps in to shut people the fuck up

I think that is beautiful about this place.

New Post Parasites in my opinion are generally foul
Ode to the Ticks

Never was a parable so small
yet so blood filled as the song
of the dog tick. Out in the garden
near the shadows of butterfly.
Remember when the box started
scratching? Twenty seven cacoons
started wanting to fly? Oh yes
the book shelf and we were eating
our breakfasts. Woke up and just
started eating. All the noises
but not like the sound of a tick
burning in the ashtray because
that is more silent still.
Burn tick burn, bother not the dog.
He only waits for your mysterious arrival,
the one on the wind, the one he never chose.
The tick fasts and gorges, dies.
The parable lives on.
