New Home

The dogs have a new home! Thanks to the fine folks at MuNu, I shall now be known as 3leggeddog.mu.nu. Well, I will be once I figure out what the heck I’m doing…

Thanks to Pixy for setting me up, Madfish Willie for being the first to say, “AYE”, and for Alex for being my sponsor. I hope to make you all proud.

House On A Cliff

Louis MacNeice

Indoors the tang of a tiny oil lamp. Outdoors
The winking signal on the waste of sea.
Indoors the sound of the wind. Outdoors the wind.
Indoors the locked heart and the lost key.

Outdoors the chill, the void, the siren. Indoors
The strong man pained to find his red blood cools,
While the blind clock grows louder, faster. Outdoors
The silent moon, the garrulous tides she rules.

Indoors ancestral curse-cum-blessing. Outdoors
The empty bowl of heaven, the empty deep.
Indoors a purposeful man who talks at cross
Purposes, to himself, in a broken sleep.
