Hot August Night and Captain Beefheart

For those of you who'll be in town and not watching the Steelers pre-season game (both of you), a reminder, along with an updated lineup and new poster, for tomorrow's Hot August Night reading at the Modern Formations Gallery.

For everybody else, here's a little treat from Captain Beefheart and the boys ...

After all, it is Friday ...

When the page was blank
no one thought, suddenly
a flower would appear.
David Lindley, -from LR#148

in the short summer night
wriggling to climax...
maiden flowers
translated by David Lanoue

You must have noted that the publicity blurb used "fame" in the sentence with "Don Wentworth."

Pretty cool!

Thanks for the Beefheart video -- hilarious!

hey, Jim thanks ... I did notice that sentence and all I can say is I want some of that kool-aid ...

I didn't realize until this year this gem was written by Bo Diddley.
