Beneath Cherry Blossoms - The Lilliput Review Blog

Friday, 28 September 2007

On the run ...


An extremely busy week here in Pittsburgh; I taught a lifelong learning class on poetry at the University of Pittsburgh, sponsored by our local library association (ACLA), am busy making plans for some hiking in the woods and the usual Lilliput things.  Also, some film reviews for the website Fulvue Drive-In, one on Marco Polo and the other on the House of Usher.  Both were pretty horrific, and not in a good way, which, of course made writing the reviews all the more fun.

So, I'll keep it brief.  Today is a day when losers everywhere pause to commemorate the great Arnold Stang.  Here is an interview with him because, well, it's the web and here's an interview ... with delightful picture.

Continuing our leisurely sampling of back issues of Lilliput Review, it's time to skip forward to #123.  #122 is a one poem broadside by David Chorlton entitled And, which would be criminal to excerpt, so I won't.  It is available for a mere buck ... but enough with the plugs, on with the poems.

 

One Small Poem

  can take you

  a long way

 

  think how far

  you've come

 

  to find

  this one.

                       ~ Bart Solarczyk

 

INTERLUDE

  IN THE MORNING

  WE SAID THINGS

  RARELY SPOKEN BEFORE

  3 AM

  & OUR HEARTS BEAT

  LIKE THIS THIS THIS.

~ Lonnie Sherman

 

Nearing

the face of the child

a snowflake quickens

~ Patrick Sweeney

 

And the indomitable Albert Huffstickler:

 

I wanted to understand

so much all at once

but learned:

to understand everything,

begin with one breath.

Thanks, Leigh Anne ... hope you run across a thing or two here that is worthwhile ... or at least explains that early morning twitch I always seem to have ...

Ed:  Well, I figured if anybody was lurking in the reeds, ol' Arnold Stang would pull them out.  Yes, indeed, Cid Caesar, Steve Allen, Ernie Kovacs and all ... a fertile learning group for the proverbial impressionable minds.
