Dog Among Elephants - Excerpted from 50 POEMS - #poem #poetry #mywriting #anthology

Wary of a foot descending accidentally
Safe within the cool allure of shadows

Time then swept the sky clean as a beach
Knocked the mighty giants down to stay
Splintering rib cages, white as sailboat wrecks
Disappearing into the sand

Service in the circus first, Cracker-Jacked-up kids
Squealing as the prisoners marched in single
File, blaring jungle jazz from waving trunks

Next, a team of hunters in their Rover caravan
Rifle bearing, khaki-clad, guides and jerry cans
Off to make their bones and win a trophy

Finally, the taxidermists gaze with glassy eyes
While fashioning elaborate umbrella stands

Now the hound with steady gait
Shoulders straight, eyes focused
On some horizon far beyond his sight
Seems to smile as sunlight bears down
Hotter than a spot, without a bark or
Warning growl to spare for prince
Or serf, without a collar, leash
Or tag, license, name or master

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #academia, #chinoiserie, #economics, #gametheory, #literature, #lowbrowart, #mathematicians, #mathematics, #philosophy, #physics, #poetry, #science and #talking (and listening...sometimes 😏). Wow, I feel like a snob just looking at those tags, so:

My musical tastes are broad and shallow. I'm basically, guiltily monolingual (though I'd be happy to get back into Hindi if I had someone to talk to... I'm not ready to inflict my French on anyone yet). I have the soul of a stamp-collector, or perhaps, to be kinder, a medieval scholastic. My guilty pleasures include reading shitty, self-indulgent fanfiction fix-its and running too far in dumb places/conditions. I love to travel, especially in moldy, old European cities, but rarely get to do so for pleasure. I also like the outdoors, provided that it doesn't go much above 25 C... Feynman was my first crush. (Actually, that's a lie, I think it was the guy with the turtlenecks from Earth Final Conflict, but I don't even remember his name. No, that's also a lie, I think it was 'Liam.') I may or may not still have a huge man-crush on Pascal.

I find Facebook deeply boring, and not a great way to find new people or ideas (also, everyone I know is on there). Twitter has its uses, but those are mostly: finding interesting thinkers, and then, well, twitting them 😏. I thought about trying Diaspora a few years ago, but now all the cool people I followed on Google+ are... not on Google+ anymore. This is, apparently, what happens to me: the mysterious operations of the free market manage to create something that I really love, and then there isn't enough of a consumer base to actually sustain it. It happens with make-up, books, TV series and ice cream flavors too. Economics is a bitch. (But I love her anyway.)
