    Qimi, I apologize if my response to you in that poetry thread came off as vicious. I didn't mean for it to be that way. Also... Clean out your inbox immediately or I will be FORCED to spill your darkest secrets to the world! MUAHAHAH! LOL! Just kiddin'. I hope you had a happy mother's day. You are a mother, right qimi?

    The version of Les Miserables that I read was unabridged (The grey signet classic that has the same picture of Cosette as the one in your avatar), but it was dismissed by many as a poor translation of the classic. Could've fooled me! I was addicted to that book like womanizers are addicted to strip clubs! I can only imagine how spectacular a "good" translation of the book would be. The penguin classic is said to be far superior. I'm sorry I don't agree with your thoughts regarding the pace of Hugo's books. It took me longer to read Faulkner's "Absalom! Absalom!" than Hugo's epic, even though it is a fraction of the length. Happy reading 'til next time, qimi!

    Qimi, I feel the need to apologize for responding so late. I have been delayed by personal issues including a rough break-up and schoolwork, therefore I only log on periodically to get feedback on some random poem I'm writing. I was a Biology major, but frankly my disgust with incompetent professors and rampant rote learning compelled me to switch to math. I have earned so many upper-division undergraduate math credits that I can get my b.s. in math as soon this coming summer semester. Do you know much about math, qimi? I love the subtle parallels between mathematic, abstract thought and various art mediums whether they be paintings/drawings or poems. Anywho, I'll answer your question.

Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout

by qimissung on 12-15-2012 at 02:13 AM
I live in the United States of America, and we had another school shooting today. With horror I listened to the news reports that a gunman had gone into an elementary school and killed 27 people, 20 of them “children between the ages of 5 and 10.” And I listened tiredly and wearily to the usual rhetoric of the newscast without end as they recounted the “worst school shooting in an elementary school.”
I guess they are doing the best they can, but you simply can’t put a qualifier or adjective

In Memoriam

by qimissung on 04-04-2012 at 12:05 AM
One of my former students-he graduated last year-was shot and killed last night around 10 o'clock.

He had just finished playing a game of basketball and was sitting in a car on a dark street, with his cousin. They were waiting for his cousin's ride when another car drove up. It was someone they knew and they argued over a girl his cousin had been seeing. The young man in the car pulled out a gun and shot them. Victor was shot two times in the back. He was treated at a nearby hospital,

The Anger and The Anguish

by qimissung on 01-04-2012 at 02:24 PM
I read several good books in 2011. I read "Candide," "The Crying of Lot 49", "Housekeeping," "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," and "The Dubliners." I read others, but these I read last fall and today it is of "The Dubliners" I speak.

I've been wanting to read something by Joyce. Eventually I hope to read "Ulysses." I think that might be akin to saying that someday I'd like to climb Mount Everest, for

The Bird's Nest

by qimissung on 12-27-2011 at 03:20 PM
looking at it I knew it was different
a bird's nest
full of hope and fear
and the cavalier fulsomeness of life
the blind ability to get up each day under the weight of it all
to go out every day believing you were one of the masses
dressed in the same uniform
believing the same things
that god is good
that love will find a way
believing or hoping to believe that
the others would not notice your vampiric differences

I acquire some books

by qimissung on 12-04-2011 at 08:13 PM
I got up yesterday morning, a Saturday, around 5:45. I washed my face and dressed and walked to my car in the dark. I stopped by my local Starbucks and treated myself to a tall mocha.

I then made my way down Midway to 635; from there to Central Expressway from which I exited at Northwest Highway. My destination was the Half-Price Books located there, or rather the warehouse that I knew was located near it.

Once I arrived I noticed, somewhat to my chagrin, that there
