Made by Diego Soprana


The woman is perfected
Her dead

Body wears the smile of accomplishment,
The illusion of a Greek necessity

Flows in the scrolls of her toga,
Her bare

Feet seem to be saying:
We have come so far, it is over.

Each dead child coiled, a white serpent,
One at each little

Pitcher of milk, now empty
She has folded

Them back into her body as petals
Of a rose close when the garden

Stiffens and odors bleed
From the sweet, deep throats of the night flower.

The moon has nothing to be sad about,
Staring from her hood of bone.

She is used to this sort of thing.
Her blacks crackle and drag.

Sylvia Plath, "Edge"

Carmageddon  

I’m so glad I’m not gonna be around LA for another couple weeks.  This Carmageddon business sounds dreadful. =(

Ohhhh LA, when will you public transportation a hell of a lot more reasonable to utilize?

Darwin Award Winner of the Day: A man taking part in a protest against mandatory helmet laws died after losing control of his motorcycle and striking his helmet-less head on the pavement.
Parish-resident Philip A. Contos was riding his 1983 Harley Davidson along Route 11 in Onondaga, New York, with members of American Bikers Aimed Towards Education, “a safety, educational, charitable and advocacy motorcyclist organization” that opposes “laws mandating use of helmets at all times by all riders.”
The attending physician who examined Contos’s body told troopers that the 55-year-old would have survived the crash were he wearing a Department of Transportation-approved helmet.

Just for the record, buddies, I grew up Onondaga County.  I drove on Route 11 today.  I am not particularly shocked about this story.

Abe's reaction to the car accident

  • Abe: I fucked up my neck. A drunk driver ran into a UPS truck which ran into us.
  • Me: Oh god, I'm so sorry. Are you okay?
  • Abe: Going to the doctor later so I can find out what's up.
  • ...
  • Abe: They gave me a neck brace.
  • Abe: Sam it won't match anything I own.
