In the Details
Beauty lives in curves and correlations, simple intricacies fitting frame to frame, the potency of exactly naming demons and destinies Transformed, daily meditations reach heights of ecstasy; practice becomes mastery   Beauty must disturb send waves displaying meaning into neural crevices thus saying: Stay deeply in this brief eternity

D.B. COX

Road like a Rover
The bus drifts up an off-ramp, somewhere on I-95. We're moving toward the second show of the day. Two is nothing new. It's 1968, & business is good. Behind me, the trumpet man blows quietly into his horn. Warming up. His solo's down cold; all heart & soul. Miles couldn't play "TAPS" any sadder. All group moves, are choreographed in "one of the few", "dress blue" precision... [Fire the rifles] (… don't look back) [Blow the horn] (… don't consider) [Fold the flag] (… don't believe) [Pass it over] (… don't feel a thing) [Hand-Salute] (… Semper Fi-nada) climb back on the long, gray bus, & gone… Yeah, we've got it made out here on the highway. Just keep the conscious clean, & don't fuck with the machine. Riding a road, like a river with rapid black water, pulling us on farther & faster. All of us -- bound for that vanishing point somewhere, in the heat-shadowed distance.
