I grasp

for you

“Verse XIV”

In this hour I feel you like never before
As you lay there imprisoned in a state of isolation, I lay here restless in the straight jacket of my making.
I see the naïveté of a youth transcend to the reason of an adulthood. Along has come a first dose of morbid fear: a realisation that this is life and no, no it’s not going to unfurl and happen but that it is, it is unraveling and happening.
In this hour I need you like never before.

“Come On Gaius”

I love beginnings
Love! “So strong!” It is though
Oh how much I know this
Venus to Uranus
Exploded with a kiss
I hate though endings
Hate! “Too strong!” Not at all
All conspires against us
The mean and religious
Everything does curse us.


[1]   Uranus _ 27 known moons _ 7th planet from the Sun; named after the Greek god of the sky _ I’ll believe in Pluto ’til I die _ Twenni-seven, huh! Twen Tee Sev En, HUH!

Excuse me while I kiss the sky,
you got to get it while you can.
Love cannot save us from fate,
go back to her, I’ll go to black.

📺 ‘Plebs’

I watch while I wait

Plebs — an English television comedy series — makes amusing use of anachronistically modern parlance and concepts in the historical setting of Ancient Rome.

It began broadcasting in March 2013 and is based on residents of Rome living around two millennia ago — in that era, ‘plebs’ were ordinary non-patrician citizens;* they weren’t slaves; they weren’t aristocrats — it is currently in its fifth season I do think.

The show’s format has been compared to Blackadder. Oh me and Manfred we did watch that together entwined as one; hidden away were we: hidden away in plain sight, hidden away in broad daylight.

When in Rome…

* As Wikipedia say: “The patricians (from Latin: patricius) were originally a group of ruling class families in ancient Rome. The distinction was highly significant in the Roman Kingdom, and the early Republic, but its relevance waned after the Conflict of the Orders (494 BC to 287 BC), and by the time of the late Republic and Empire, membership in the patriciate was of only nominal significance.”

Something belonging to a period other than that being portrayed. / Belonging or appropriate to an earlier period. — “Julie is rebelling against the anachronistic morality of her parents.”

A particular way of speaking or using words, especially a way common to those with a particular job or interest. — “Words such as ‘doolally’ and ‘bint’ and ‘shufti’ that were once in common parlance.”

The direct vote of all the members of an electorate on an important public question such as a change in the constitution. — “The administration will hold a plebiscite for the approval of constitutional reforms.”
