The Arkside of Thought by Sahm King

via The Arkside of Thought by Sahm King | Poetry Philosophy Politics & Life.

Welcome to the Arkside (also known as Hell). I can’t promise you’ll find anything you like here. I also can’t promise you won’t walk away with a bitter taste in your mouth. I can promise, however, to present myself, 100%. And how can I be so audacious as to make this promise? Because it’s the 21st century and, by now, everyone should know how to change the channel! BAM! Enjoy the video. Or not…

Freeverse Poetry: King Arthur and the Great Beast

-That man there, sitting in the cubicle,

when he was a little boy,
used to fight dragons and witches,
so imbued with imagination was he,
that a stick he plucked from the earth
was a great broadsword called Excalibur,
and he, himself, was the legendary King Arthur,
and a great tree all the neighborhood kids
lovingly called The Witch’s Tree,
and imagined would bleed black blood
and grow tentacles should one of her limbs be shorn away,
served as mighty opposition to the land of Camelot
– his backyard –
and his benevolent rule;
and he would fight this mighty Witch’s Tree,
who was actually a great and winged beast
from the depths of hell,
and that beast would have him near defeat,
until his knights would present him with
the nectar of the gods themselves
– else it was sunmade iced tea that
had just finished cooling in the fridge –
and with his renewed strength and will,
he would make that great and winged beast
succumb to the might of Excalibur,
and again, Camelot would be spared
darkness and destruction.
Today, that man there, sitting in the cubicle,
so imbued with imagination,
fights daydreams of going home
and going to bed.

We Drink Photo Challenge 1 – Fire

I decided to try out Bastet’s We Drink Photo Challenge!  Why?  Because I can.  I don’t have a camera at the moment, so I had to make do with my Android phone using an application called Fotor.  The majority of the photomanipulations were done in Adobe Photoshop.  I only have a couple of shots that turned out, and on some areas that you may recall from my winter sets.  Nothing epic, just trying to get back into the thick of it in anticipation of getting a new camera here within the next couple of months.

No poetry with this set.  I couldn’t think of a haiku or senryu to place on either of the images.  Ah well.

By the way, for anyone interested, Bastet has put up the We Drink Photo Challenge -2.  Check it out when you’ve the chance!

That Awkward Moment When…

…you learn that, somehow, you are a misogynist because you are a man who happens to have written three books and are working on three more AND you have a girlfriend that apparently cooks, cleans the house, washes all your clothes, and works full time to support your crack  *cgh* I mean writing habit…

This, of course, leaves out the fact that all three of those books took a year each to write (back to back, while working a full time job and going to school full time), and that, of the next three, at least one of those has been in the works for the last seven years, one of these is just a thought, and the other one is barely started and may not even be released within the next year or two, if ever…and that your girlfriend does not do your cooking, do all the cleaning, wash your clothes, and does not work full time to support you or your crack *cgh* I mean writing habit…

If you’re male, and you’re an author, and you have a girlfriend, or you’re married, you’re probably a misogynist dickhead that exploits and abuses your significant other.  STOP, you sick bastard.  In the words of the woman that approached me today, “You’re mentally ill and you need help.  Your girlfriend is not your slave, and you’re just a lazy jerk.”

Well, she did get the lazy part right.  That’s why that one book has taken the last seven years…

I guess I’ll be spending next week seeking help.

I love the internet…

  1. Wow… This is…wow… Terry Irving, I don’t know what to say… I mean, besides the obvious thank you, and the standard, “I’m humbled.” So, thank you… I’m humbled.


    1. Are you kidding? This is one of the most amazing assemblages of talent I’ve seen. I’m freaking humbled–I’m three times your age and I’m not at all sure I could collect this from all 4 decades of work.

      So, thank YOU
