[in Just-] (Spring is here!) ee cummings

 

in Just-
spring          when the world is mud-
luscious the little
lame balloonman

 

whistles          far          and wee

 

and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it’s
spring

 

when the world is puddle-wonderful

 

the queer
old balloonman whistles
far          and             wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing

 

from hop-scotch and jump-rope and

 

it’s
spring
and

 

         the

 

                  goat-footed

 

balloonMan          whistles
far
and
wee

In Memoriam, Christopher Hitchens … some marvelous quotes

ON HYPOCRITES
“Nothing optional—from homosexuality to adultery—is ever made punishable unless those who do the prohibiting (and exact the fierce punishment) have a repressed desire to participate.” 2007

ON CATS & DOGS
“Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are god.” 2007

ON MICHAEL MOORE

“The laugh here is on the polished, sophisticated Europeans. They think Americans are fat, vulgar, greedy, stupid, ambitious, and ignorant and so on. And they’ve taken as their own, as their representative American, someone who actually embodies all of those qualities,” – MSNBC’s Scarborough Country, May 2004
