Subject: Late Night Breeze-shooting
From: MichaelAnthony
Date: 02 Oct 00 - 02:25 AM

It's the silence of another lonely night How lucky I am but hope it doesn't sift into waste My puppet fingers hurt and my tongue is like paste Is it time to turn again, or why have you left me, soul-god, god-frog Whom I learned to love from ground one But tonight I don't know nothing again Feel the pressure to be another jack-be-handy and have the pride of working again Yet feel I'm not normal but to hear and feel and peel and kneel and revel Loving change and challenge but that inertia magnetic core Comes to pound on my heart

Just the other day, yesterday, it was all good I said what I meant and did what I should None this a problem but a boon Lucky to be lonely and like a racoon Only one up this late But tonight's not that way A wayward breeze blows through the window And doesn't sing

Hi MichaelAnthony, I enjoyed your poem, despite the lack of line breaks or maybe you did not intend to have them. Melancholy does have a way of slipping in at times and night's the worst, but melancholy is sometimes the best fuel for our thoughts and musings.

I was meant to be nocturnal. I'd stay up all night, every night, surrounded by people but alone in the world, if I didn't have to get up in the morning and try to be productive. The good thing about being a college student is that everyone expects me to look exhausted, so I can hide my habit and blame it on homework.

Does anyone know "200 Miles" by the Cowboy Junkies? That's my theme song. Driving through nowhere, alone, at night, in the rain.

I'm supposed to be writing a short paper on the influence of Confucian filial piety on 5th century BC Chinese cultural ideals. Would much rather be on Mudcat.

Chee-Yaou enquired respecting filial piety. Chee says, the filial piety
of the present day is esteemed merely ability to nourish a parent. This care
is extended to a dog or a horse. Every domestic animal can obtain food.
Beside veneration, what is the difference?

Feel like explaining that for me?

Wow, now that's late night breeze-shooting--filial piety!

Thanks for posting. Metch, you're right about that mood. And I'll keep my ears out for that song, Ely. Where else can you go but true unknown?

Well I hadn't been thinking much about filial piety until Ely dropped by, I was actually remembering how much I liked Mikis Theodorakis, not having thought about him until recently and was just listening to Ena to Helidoni at http://www.batcave.net/news/newspapers/istruggle/mp3s.html

Thanks for the link. I'll go and listen to it now. The song Ely mentions seems like the same subject matter of a song I recorded and sent to Mudcat Radio a couple of weeks ago.

This is a Jesse Fuller song I think he sang for his own private comfort. He deliberately slurs the words...The song is called "Where else could I go but to the Lord?". But that's not what he sings on the recording I have.

Added a verse and put in what I hear or would like to hear when he slurs.

Motor-with the cars drivers all unknown Pleasure you get from moving pure Driving along face sensational world Where else can you go but true unknown?

WHERE CAN YOU GO WHERE CAN YOU GO Seeking some solice for your soul Driving along face sensational world WHERE ELSE CAN YOU GO BUT TRUE UNKNOWN?

Life have been grand with the ones you love so near But the coffee that you get from god get ruined Cause when you feel that stifling hand of death Where else can you go but true unknown?

WHERE CAN YOU GO WHERE CAN YOU GO Seeking some solice for your soul Driving along face sensational world WHERE ELSE CAN YOU GO BUT TRUE UNKNOWN?

Moving below this old sinful world Heartache can come forty-fold And when you see we're always on our own Where else can you go but true unknown?

WHERE CAN YOU GO WHERE CAN YOU GO Seeking some solice for your soul Cause when you feel that stifling hand of death WHERE ELSE CAN YOU GO BUT TRUE UNKNOWN?

Metchosin, have you heard any of Theodorakis' settings of George Seferis poems?? the are truly the dogs(that is wonderful) this and the Yarn of the nancy Belle and Chinese Philosophy what a strange person you are!!!****BG****

Micca, I hadn't thought of Theodorakis for years until I was wracking my brain for best movies on a thread and recalled Z and Zorba the Greek. Re Seferis, is Theodorakis's recording still available? Considering the power of his music, I imagine it could prove to be very interesting, although I am not that familiar with Seferis. Strange? nyaah, just catholic in my tastes but with very large gaps in my knowledge and education, obviously. Thanks for the suggestion, another excuse to visit abebooks!

Also Micca, considering you actually read this thread and your penchant for the Nancy Belle, isn't that a bit like the pot calling the kettle black?

Sorry, late night turned into early morning and I got sucked back into the world of the diurnal.

Well, yeah, it's veneration. But 2500 years ago it was used as a basis for everything--laws, religion, corporal punishment. In other words, it translated the parent-child relationship into Emperor-subject/superior-inferior relationships. It was an insult to your parents to damage your body (which they had given you) so the worst punishments involved everything from tattooing to decapitation--the damage was the ultimate shame on your family. All kinds of funny details. The texts I was using had ministers reminding emperors of the wisdom and greatness of their ancestors all the time. Must have gotten a bit tiresome ;).

Thanks Ely, I hope you managed to get your paper done. Thanks for the background, although it still seems to me, we haven't changed much in a couple of milleniums and we still have a tendancy to take basic tenets to extremes.

MichaelAnthony, it may not help your late night melancholia, but it helps me when I feel that way, if I can solve any other ills that come to mind. A long rehydrating drink of water for your tongue and a hot water soak for your fingers might not cure all that ails you, but it will at least give you something to do *g* This is not just a hollowfox talking, its a momfox talking. I hope tonight's better for you.

Ah, but Metchosin, So Many people think I am weird that even I am beginning to concede the possibility,(I seem perfectly normal to me) I don't know if the Seferis poems set to music by Theodorakis are still available on recordings, a friend who knew I had discovered the poet in translation gave me a tape, that is somewhere in the house and indexed my copy of the collected poems( I dont speak greek)If you want some of the poems PM me. and I will do what I can...

My favorite line from Zorba is "But that wood isn't ours! Yes it is! Look, forest belongs to monastery, monastery belongs to God, God belongs to everybody, so the wood is ours!"

Oh sorry Mbo, my Shooglenifty friend, I wasn't trying to turn this into a guessing game, just tease you a bit and maybe bring a smile to your face. Don't ruin it for me, I was just impressed by the number of videos you must have seen and wondering if you had a photographic memory.
