including the Pome of the Day Project

Tuesday, April 18, 2006


This is Dr. Hubert Zork, master of unfamiliar jazz criticism but rather than extolling on the sweet music, I must let you know about the animation work of the fictional animator John Akre, at work at giving a strange kind of life to his fictional characters.

Yesterday he animated so many company logos and also did an extended locatiamation segment all about buying. He started shooting his sticky notes on his locatiamator in the dappled shade under the lattice ceiling of his picnic table arbor and liked that pattern of sun and shadow so much he shot all of them there.

He will continue his work on page 43 this evening. Now it is time for the Pome of the Day Project.

electronic devices everwhere
comence to scream and shout
it seems that all the batteries
have chosen to go out

the C's and D's, the double A's
the wet cells and the dry
rechargables and buttons
make the toys and cell phones cry

the air is black with screaming
calls of portable distress
the death of all those batteries
leaves behind electric mess

it could be global warming
cosmic rays, or just neglect
but the tiny screaming tells the end
of current that's direct.

Written in sincerity and with fingers,
Dr. Hubert Zork
