Motherland

August 21, 2008

I cut her down from where she hung
And chopped her into pieces
I took some home to bury her
The rest to make a feast

In the lime fields I dug a pit
Kissed her head and tossed it in
Her eyes they watched me lovingly
As I piled on the dirt

I left no marker on her grave
Nothing to show where her beauty lay
The day was done, so was I
Weary I walked away

At home I put a pot to boil
Tossed in what was once her
Beautiful hands with perfect fingernails
Painted a crimson red

In the light of the lamp
I ate her flesh
Flavoured by my tears
As I wept

Watchmen – The Movie

August 8, 2008

The trailer for Watchmen, the movie is out and it looks exciting. Very exciting.

They even used Rorschach’s …and I will look down and whisper  ‘no’ line.

Just need to keep on reminding myself not to complain about how almost every scene in the trailer looks like an enlarged panel from the comic and that “visionary” director Zack Snyder is going to get credit for Alan Moore and  Dave Gibbons writing and art work.

More about the book here.
