An Annual of the Dark Physics


The Baltic Sea froze in 1307. Birds flew north
From the Mediterranean in early January.
There were meteor storms throughout Europe.

On the first day of Lent
Two children took their own lives:
Their bodies
Were sewn into goats’ skins

And were dragged by the hangman’s horse
The three miles down to the sea.
They were given a simple grave in the sand.

The following Sunday, Meister Eckhart
Shouted that a secret word
Had been spoken to him. He preached

That Mary Magdalene
Sought a dead man in the tomb
But, in her confusion, found
Only two angels laughing…

This was a consequence of her purity

And her all to human grief.
The Baltic Sea
Also froze in 1303–

nothing happened that was worthy of poetry.

Emerald Green…

Well, my Wit friends, it is hard to believe it is nearly the end of January, 2013… with resolutions firmly toasting on the back-burner.  We are in a bitter cold slump here…but I have to say, I kind of like it. When I was a kid, winters were like this every year…lakes to skate on, snow to pile up and watch melt until June, snow days home from school watching all the soaps that we’d normally miss…So I welcome the chic cold…and look forward to spring and the emerald green to come…

I love this emerald green skirt above. I had one similar years ago…in a haunting cerulean color which I fitfully ruined during a Christmas dinner when a Braciole (a stuffed meat roll covered in red sauce) took a tumble from my plate and landed in my lap. Note: silk organza does not clean easily. 2nd note: wear an apron when eating Braciole.
