Poor Steve!
Poor Steve!
Thien grieves for Steve.
I do not, will not grieve for Steve.
There's no Steve grief in my Tweet feed.

Hauled all my gear to "666" in yesterday's wet grey light, only to discover its photogenic shed (above; still one of the hardest of the located locations) knocked down & replaced with a visually inferior fence & off-the-rack modern facsimile.  So this old Google screengrab is the closest I'll ever come to this particular diagonal composition.  "Still to come, bide your time."  (Warren Tallman)

Items found with John Berryman after his suicide

The folded poem in the photo reads:

I didn’t. And I didn’t. Sharp the Spanish blade
to gash my throat after I’d climbed across
the high railing of the bridge
to tilt out, with the knife in my right hand
to slash me knocked or fainting till I’d fall
unable to keep my skull down but fearless--


Tripwire #12: some folks engaged in ventriloquism, but still grateful for a few new glimpses of my friend.  Ferrari's revised acrostics; Nealon's brushed-up nap; Robertson's bibliographical exegesis of Hammertown; Smith's history; Mauer's warmth; Brown's tone.  But, funnily enough, it's Amy De'ath who reminds me most of Pete, an instantly recognizable voice that doesn't sound, or pretend to sound, like anyone but herself.

"The compact Nokia 3710 is great on the go. It folds so you can easily slide it into your pocket or purse. It includes a 3.2 megapixel camera to capture all of life's special moments, and all of the content can be stored on a micro SD card or shared online. Plus, the bright screen makes photo review a great experience. The Nokia 3710 fold smoothly opens to reveal the bright screen, ideal for displaying the pictures and videos taken with the 3.2-megapixel camera."

Then we come to the farmlands, and the undeveloped areas.
And I have learned how these things work together.

(David Byrne)

Small tweak to the image editor's settings, and last year's mostly fuzzy photographs leap into crystal clarity.

CJB dumb but learning!
Hold me in your hands like a bunch of flowers
