Pre TEA TIME post of today's rhetorical verse: (OT) OSCAR "RACE" [Haiku]
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 25, 2002, 4:20 PM

REMINDER / INVITATION: "TEA TIME in L.A." thread will be posted today
at 7:00 PM Bronze Time. (4 PM in L.A., 7 PM in NYC, Midnight in London, etc.).


(SEE MORE NOTES ABOUT THIS IN RESPONSES TO THIS POST)

DUE TO LAST NIGHT'S OSCARS (and in lieu of a Buffy sonnet)
my rhetorical verse for today's Tea Time is a haiku sequence on . . .


OSCAR "RACE" (HAIKUS)


(1.1) Sidney Portier

  reminded us of a past

    which he transcended.


   (2.2) A black star. No servant --

        a leading man with black skin.

           Then, he stood alone.



(2.1) Halle Berry's speech

        was perfectly ironic:

    Black "vessel." White mom.


    (2.2) Thanked Warren Beatty

         (who, in "Bulworth," said we should

            screw 'till one color).



(3) (Martin Luther King:

     if he had returned last night,

        what would he have said?)



(4.1.) Denzel Washington

  was the high point of the night.

    Perfect "acceptance."


    (4.2) His presence and grace . . .

           Ev'ry expression and word --

              absolutely right.


   (4.3) Yes, Denzel's skin's dark. --

          too bad it's still a BIG deal."

His talent . . . BIGGER.


you speak

For those who want to join in on this evolving "online experiment" <smile>,
look for a topic that begins TEA TIME in L.A at the top of the Forum boards
at about 7:00 PM Bronze Time. I'll be around from 7-8 PM, daily .... until I've written
as many sonnets as Shakespeare (or Wordsworth?) <smile> ... or until we take over
the Buffyverse <grin> ... or the world really and truly comes to an end. <ewg> etc, etc.
