Blue lines and mottled yellow planes,
A horned block of red capped in brown,
Framing the pale face and rouged cheeks
Of a boy. He stands still and blank,
Eyes unfocused, hand perched on hip, posed
Yet not posturing, neither there nor still
By choice. He waits for sitting’s end,
Running already, free and laughing
With friends across plains of yellow grass.

It’s been quiet around here the past six months but I intend to start rambling about books and movies again.

Ideally, I’d chip away at the pile of notes I kept but never wrote about from the second half of last year’s lists. I’ve got high hopes, but we’ll see how it goes.

Worst case scenario: I pick up with the new stuff, go with it, and just let the past be past.

We’ll see.
