December 2010


All three of ye.  Here’s to two weeks of writing last January’s dates before denial subsides and we all let 2011 in the door.  The European Central Wank (sic) has threatened to devalue the year so it may actually end up being 2003.756234.  So happy whatever it turns out to be.

It is that time of year again when we recycle this post.  Today December 22nd in 1989, Samuel Beckett died.  Since then he has fast been acquiring an “honoured name.”  Is that Hell?  

Roundelay

on all that strand
at end of day
steps sole sound
long sole sound
until unbidden stay
then no sound
on all that strand
long no sound
until unbidden go
steps sole sound
long sole sound
on all that strand
at end of day 

-Samuel Beckett (1906-1989)
