Primary colors, stripes,
a camera that reconstructs
the engine of the sun. The cat in
its container garden,
on an edge of waking.

THE ENGINE OF THE SUN

Speaking of Murk, I bought his poetry book. It's really damn good.

Lil poem I dug up on the occasion of the entirely predictable and pitiful conclusion to the Rio Earth Summit.

Die with a whimper, fuckers.

I feel like I've posted this before, but maybe I just sent it to coldforge.

Anyway, x-post with the photos thread. File under: Lion poem.

Bit o' dung from Gilgamesh for yr August afternoon.

~

Down beside the river the Bull snorts, and a chasm opens up into which a hundred young men of Uruk fall, then two hundred, then three hundred. It snorts again and another chasm opens up, into which another hundred young men of of Uruk fall, then two hundred, then three hundred.

At its third snorting a chasm opened up,
And Enkidu fell into it.
But Enkidu leapt out. He seized the Bull of Heaven by the horns.
The Bull of Heaven blew spittle into his face,
With its thick tail it whipped up its dung.


I call this, Wherein Enkidu Seizes the Bullshit by the Horns

Jim, have you read the David Ferry version of Gilgamesh?  I reread it like once every year or so; I love it.

No, I haven't! I'm sort of a newcomer to the Sumerian stuff. Love what I've found so far.

Btw, are you Enki Du on FB? The hirsute details make me wonder.

Sincerely,

Enmerkar
