and know the place for the first time." (T S Eliot)

BLAGGARD AVENUE WITH AN "E"


An ebook version of "Blaggard Avenue" is now available.  The ebook includes a prologue that was not part of the printed edition.

For Kindle, simply go to Amazon.com and search for books by David Morisset.  The printed edition is also available via Amazon (as well as CreateSpace).

For users of other ebook platforms, including people with iPads, "Blaggard Avenue" is available at Smashwords.com in several formats.  Again, a search for books by David Morisset will find it.  Make sure that Smashwords' "Adult Filter" is "deactivated" when you search.

SKY TONIGHT




I caught the sky tonight
Just before it went on sale.
Anyone could see it;
But nobody was looking.


It was almost about
To reach its use-by date.
So it was splendid;
But nobody was looking.


It'll be there tomorrow -
Early and expectant.
Yearning after yesterday -
When nobody was looking.

DAGGER




Red no more describes
The blood of a man
Than orange can define
The shades of a sunset.

Skin ripped open
Has a garish
Delight that excites
The lethal spirit.

But the real impact
Goes to the heart;
Not to the fickle senses,
And so saps the climax.

Yet the dead are gone
And the author has won,
But souls live on
In the mind of the knife.
