Bits and Pieces (guest thingies by Anca and Dan)
3.25.2003 by , every Tuesday.
More guest writings this week, because 1. they're great and 2. I've been drawing lately, instead of writing. I find I can only focus on one sort of art at a time. Does anyone else have this experience?
Maybe I'll post some drawings next week and have a non-story Bedtime Stories, if Neale of Ink isn't too mad.
Midterm Distractions: Archaeology Drag
The desiccated old professor slips through the crack in the musty velvet curtains. He gives a coy flip of the silvery-gray comb-over. His enormous glasses slide back up his bulbous nose with his upward gaze. His dangling silver earrings clink like little wind-chimes and glint in the spotlight. The glinting-clinking causes a downward glance at his off-the-shoulder, sweet-heart neckline, blue sequined gown. The prof shifts weight, revealing a once-muscular-now-flabby varicose-veined leg out of the slit in his dress. The veins are of a hue rather complementary to his dress. He cautiously, coyly, approaches the microphone.
He breathes in.
Pain and sorrow dance
Alongside joy and sunshine
I watch from my box.
Gentle wind blows south
Boy watches drifting cloudscapes
