Burlap, satin, passion. Pageant fashion.

It’s pageant season! Not as in The Miss America Pageant although it might be that season as well. I’m not sure. I quit paying attention to that in 1983 after I won a spot on the high school homecoming court, and wrote in my bio that my big life goal was “to win The Miss America Pageant,” which I thought was hilarious due to irony but that didn’t come through in the homecoming flyer distributed school-wide so basically I set myself up for a year’s worth of mockery and I think it’s understandable why I’ve worked since then to dissociate myself altogether from that kind of pageantry. 828 more words

Stage: Dave Monks in Irish to the Core –  Rhumbelow Theatre

Review: BILLY SUTER

…………………………………………………………………………………………………….………………….

I HAD never been to Tina’s Hotel in Kloof until Sunday, when I attended a show by Dublin-born Dave Monks in the 100-seater functions room, on the clearing above the pub and restaurant area, which has now become another local branch for Durban’s Rhumbelow Theatre. 511 more words

Anyone for a Song

Looking around the pub from his quiet corner table, Rory sees slumped heads here and there, half-drank pints and empty seats. The outlook of his own pint glass is becoming increasingly pessimistic. 695 more words

Songs In My Head - Week 7

Well with “La La Land” getting 14 Oscar nominations yesterday it seems only fitting that “Someone In the Crowd” has been in my head all week. 174 more words

식도를 앗아간 굴국밥.

겨울이니까 굴국밥.
점심에 먹으러 갔는데
굴국밥에 굴이 하나도 없는 거다.
이상해서 물어보니, 깜빡하고 굴을 안 넣으셨다고.

미쳤나.

미안하다고 굴을 따로 담아서 내주심.
샤브샤브로 먹으란 건가.
굴을 넣고 끌여서 맛있는 국밥을 먹으러 간건데
망했다.

근데 컴플레인은 또 못 거는 성격이니까
닥치고 먹었는데 맛이 없음.
맛은 없는데 급하게 밥알을 목에 처넣다가
식도를 데였다.

식도를 데이긴 또 처음이라 당황스럽고
아직도 침을 삼키면 목이 아프다.

정민이가 죽었다.
무례를 무릅쓰고 왜 죽었냐 수소문을 했다.
사실 이유가 궁금했던 것은 아닌데,
스스로를 죽인게 아니라는 걸 꼭 확인하고 싶었고
확인받고 나니 안심이 됬다.

미쳤나.

11일에 죽었는데, 23일 치르는 장례식.
상해에 있는지도 몰랐는데 상해에서 도착한다는 시신.
십몇년 만인가? 마지막으로 본 기억이 없다.

양치를 하려는데 치약을 짜고 나서 칫솔을 보니
응? 방금 짠 치약은 없고 솔이 그대로네.
뒤로 돌려보니 솔 반대편에 치약이…

미쳤나.

간밤에는
코고는 소리가 들리지 않아 몇 번을 일어나 확인했다.
새벽에 깨어 거실로 나갔나? 살아는 있나?
고개를 돌려보면 그대로 살아 새근새근.
오늘따라 코를 골지 않는 남편이라니…

분명 이상한 하루지만,
사실 이상할 것도 없다.
