I wrote this blackout poem during our inaugural Tavernacle Poetry which takes place the Fourth Friday of every month. A great thanks to organizers, Jen Sparling and Skylar Andrews.
Thought makes the whole therefore, think well.
No one has any idea I speak the truth,
and they never believe me.
All is War by other means.
Does the cessation of notes stop?
Is war another kind of language for their thoughts?
Words must have no relation to action.
Good words are a mask,
Whoever thinks considers it in its remotest,
It is a question which cannot be solved.
What makes the situation so difficult:
Those who believe may affect us.
The Augusta Women’s Club and The Book Tavern, in conjunction with Augusta Visual Artists (AVA), are sponsoring a group art show based on the literary classic Moby Dick. This one night show takes place First Friday April in Downtown Augusta at the Book Tavern from 6 to 10. Come enjoy a glass of wine, live readings, and artwork inspired by Melville’s classic. 15% of the Sale Price of each piece will be donated to the Boys & Girls Club of the CSRA for after school programs.
The Martian is my newest favourite book. I personally guarantee it, so if you buy a copy from us and don’t like it, bring it back and we’ll give you 24$ to spend on whatever else you want in the store. Need more than my recommendation? My wife loves it too. A friend told me it was “Apollo 13 on Steroids”. I could go on and on, but just swing by and read the first page. Once you start, you won’t be able to put it down.
