Orchid Dragonmaster

If poetry is allegory,
then the master lures with opioid orchids,
sequestered in the great depths of western range,
the master cultures the flowers to omnipotence –
the hatchlings suckling on nipped buds.

Mature, they scour the seven directions of the continent:
the master’s guild summoning their allegiance –
saddled fireeaters rushing porpoises in the gangetic hunt;
clawswyrm tilling the stepped arteries of the far east;

Old, they are the roofs of cities in the south,
their shackles bending the city basin.
Their shackles welded by their own sunburnt madness.
And released, they can think only as those who bear wintery embers.

Old souls, their asylum created in their death, they seek
their own rot and carcass,
in flight north to final winter,
and in fleshy death startled eternal
as kindred fire of the guild.

Mike Needs a New Set of Lungs

Our very own KutuluMike needs to have both of his lungs replaced due to a severe lung disease. No one expects you to donate your lungs for this (in all likelyhood, you are currently using yours), and for whatever reason, he is only willing to accept human lungs (picky much?). However, he does have a Go Fund Me account where he is hoping to get money which will help sustain him after he gets a transplant. The money would go towards insurance, medical, and pharmaceutical costs. If you are able to contribute please do.

The Incredibles 2 Review in 100 Words or Less – Spoiler-Free

The Incredibles 2 is a worthy successor to what I still consider one of the best super hero films of the past two decades.

The aesthetics and atmosphere are unaltered in this immediate sequel, instead merely updated to current-generation graphics.

Action and humor are a well-balanced hit, although one sequence is particularly dark, leading my 5-year-old to proclaim, “This is too creepy!” and many his age group to cover their eyes.

Adult viewers will guess the twists early on, but the story is still solid and entertaining.

This movie gets a thumbs-up from my whole family. Definitely buying the Blu-ray.
