Rooster on the Loose: Construe, Construct, Construction, Culture

A culture is the ensemble of stories that we tell ourselves about ourselves. - Clifford Gearts 

De Activation

I have decided to ration  my daily penchant
         for distraction.     (So much depends       upon         the whole shebang
and the fraction).  


Dylan Thomas

In My Craft Or Sullen Art
In my craft or sullen art Exercised in the still night When only the moon rages And the lovers lie abed With all their griefs in their arms, I labour by singing light Not for ambition or bread Or the strut and trade of charms On the ivory stages But for the common wages Of their most secret heart. Not for the proud man apart From the raging moon I write On these spindrift pages Nor for the towering dead With their nightingales and psalms But for the lovers, their arms Round the griefs of the ages, Who pay no praise or wages Nor heed my craft or art.
