    glass tower spectral leans
    while impish ghost surveys
    ready to pounce

    i sense the high pile of letters
    beneath the alphabeast’s feet
    may form a strange manifesto

    the font is quite ornate,
    maybe it feeds on texts?

    >:r

    baroque spectral letters
    impish ghost fonts
    letters beneath sense
    all matted up…

    alphabeast’s manifesto …mhh

    in john moschos’s ancient book the spirtual meadow
    there is a story about a novice who was careless with his soul
    and condemned to those flames … but the novice’s teacher
    prays for his soul and the novice then gets to hold his head
    above the river of flames by standing on the head of a bishop

    do ghosts gather in daylight? that would change everything… though perhaps not in xanthus.

    carelessness with the soul is the sign of the times — not to be ignored, not to be dismissed, not to be coveted but nevertheless always present.

    condemned to flames? perhaps, but there is another version of this story. borge’s dreamer too was condemned to the flames, but in an opposite way. it was only the flame that would tell him he was real — and he was both blessed and refused by fire itself.

    one can easily see how the towers of babel begin to crumble… until only the heads of bishops remain as stepping stones among the rubble.

    welcome ted h.

    i do think ghosts gather in daylight

    is carelessness with the soul a sign of these times
    or something more closely related to time itself?

    ah, and thanks for the memory of other ruins
    where flames caress instead of burn

    the lycians of xanthus twice chose fiery suicide
    over surrender to invading armies

    word = techno
    trackback: that’s interesting – multiple appearances… could be a good thing… but it’s a pity the trackback doesn’t do the round trip and link back to the originating post – or could we manually add the trackback to the comment too?
