Welcome to 2012! Now let’s talk about that pesky curse…

Adam’s Curse, by W. B. Yeats
Read by Diane Havens

Diane writes…

Written in heroic couplets, iambic pentameter, this poem yet sounds so natural, so conversational. A poem about poetry (and indeed all art) itself, how much work it is to write, how undervalued that labor is by many — then speaks to the art of love. My favorite of Yeats poems — a masterpiece of totally seamless form.


No. 37. I Have Come to Dread The Raven’s Caw that Signals Moonrise, by X-Himy and 6’minutestory

After the sensuality of Lawrence and the randiness of Stuart’s Finn MacGowan to kick off 2012, I thought it best to bring in just a touch of darkness to balance us out. So we return to the wonderful X-Himy and 6’minutestory for another story snippet, a la “Mary Ruth.”
