SANTA MONICA BEACH : TRANSIENT INTERDIMENSIONAL PORTAL LOUNGE - TEA TIME
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Apr 10, 2002, 6:35 AM

WHEN'S TEA TIME? 7-8 PM Bronze Time
WHAT'S TEA TIME? YOU FIGURE IT OUT. <smile>



(1) IN SHAKESPEARE'S SONNET FORM, WE SET OUR SCENE:

UPON PACIFIC SAND, NEAR SUNNYDALE

AT STROKE OF TEA TIME HOUR, NOW ROUTINE,

THERE SUDDENLY APPEARS, LIKE AHAB'S WHALE, . . .


. . . AN ALL-GLASS STRUCTURE, WITH ONE SHIMM'RING WALL:

A TRANS'ENT PORTAL with its mysteries.

INSIDE, THE ORACLE who "makes the call"

on "who is worthy." Verse is all he sees.


WHAT SHALL YOU GAIN, IF THROUGH THIS PORTAL PASS?

Beyond a mastery of Shakespeare's form,

who knows what lies beyond your looking glass --

what acts of beauty, then, will you perform.


For some parts of this path you walk haiku.

Some stretches take blank verse. Then sonnet's coup.


(2)TODAY, OUR BUFFY EPISODE IS SIX:

"The Pack," where one rude clique "put's on the dog."

Their predatory human natures mix

with evil animal. The school's pet hog . . .


. . . is appetizer for their meal's main course:

the Principal. Poor Flutie -- "doggy" dung.

Thank goodness, Xander missed that scene's remorse,

but by that time he's found himself among . . .


. . . the pack -- though there are "virtues" to that place.

His confidence and sex appeal are strong,

when normally, he flutters to save face.

We can see why a pack may not seem wrong.


But Flutie and the pig . . . they know the score.

Attacking "others" . . . that's what packs are for.
