Post-Modern Pandemic Pause

The only thing I’ve written in weeks was a Thank You note concerning a birthday gift of stereo speakers that are, right now, left and righting directly behind me. Damn near Studio Monitors, I dare say. Sweet to my now-septuagenarian auricular—I so confess.

And fess up to listening to Electric Swing (nujazz) like the that below:

I just can’t let go of this no go of no posting. I can’t even punk a poem up. Perhaps, because I can’t plant my butt on a barstool, or greasy spoon them biscuits and gravy, or wave a runner in from third, or give word to our return to the Dark Ages.

“C’est la vie” say the old folks.

    While I continue to write in this post-modern pause, I find it a grind. i think its the lack of external stimulation, other than the daily news which i now avoid like the plague we are experiencing.

      I get the need for no news, but I’ve been cursed to hang on the headline. Stay well.

    Loved both those videos. Men and women dancing to an infectious beat. Hell those were the days! And Mariana Grande – close to our hearts here in the North of England. Love that girl, and a great song, hey now. Weird, weird times now of a sudden, pole-axed the lot of us, but you have a great voice. Time out, and take care.

    Best regards
