Quietly Naked In The Pouring Rain, The Witness In The Window – by Deacon Barry

Window through Window, by SimplySchmoopie @ FlickrLet me begin by congratulating our winner, but then ask that since he seems to be on a roll, and this is his third winning entry, that he step aside for a few months and share a little spotlight with some of our other readers, if that’s OK.

The winner of our fifth poetry contest is Deacon Barry! His prize is a guest post here on UDoJ, on any topic of his choice. And since we’re de-listed from WordPress anyway, and all “MATURE CONTENT” and all, I’ve even removed the proscriptions on “The F Bomb” and pornography.

Deacon Barry, E-Mail me your post, and I’ll get it up ASAP. If you’d like to include a picture or graphic with it, I’ll be happy to include that as well (though I may need to resize it for aesthetic purposes only).

Without further ado, here is Deacon Barry’s winning entry, just below the fold –

The Witness In The Window – Voting Thread

Witness

We’ve gone to the well one more time with this poetry contest. As usual, the winning entry will get to post a guest post on UDoJ, on any subject of your choice and without edit.You all wrote some beautiful stuff in response to Quietly Naked In The Pouring Rain, and a bit of narrative emerged spontaneously.

Kristine’s entry moved me, and Deacon Barry’s winning counterpoint to that gave us the view of the incident from the husband. Max then whomped us with the final words of the dying lover.

Adding to the story line of the Cheating Wife, the Murderous Husband, and the Dying Lover, I wanted to get one more view of this incident and then I will make a page here on UDoJ to display them all together.

A refresher of the scene and the answers to the challenge are below the fold.

Narrative Poetry, Guest Post by Deacon Barry

BeowulfBack a while ago, Deacon Barry won his second poetry contest here at UDoJ, and for his troubles he gets the opportunity to present a guest post, without edit, and on any subject he chooses.

I just received it via Email, so straight from my inbox, here it is.

I swear JanieBelle’s got some kind of arcane access to my hard drive. I’ve been sitting with this post on it for a week or so now, trying to work out how to tie it all up, and she posts the very thing I’m talking about – a narrative poem!

Narrative verse is one of the oldest of mankind’s art forms. It enabled our ancestors to transmit their culture orally before writing was invented. Rhythm and rhyme were part of the negative feedback mechanism to keep the information intact against the drift of unreliable memories, until its eventual capture and recording on silicon and paper. Because of this, we still have the epics of Gilgamesh, the Rig Veda, the Mahabarata, and the Iliad.

Sand In Circles, Guest Post by Max Adams

For her winning entry in our most recent poetry contest, I give you Max Adams:

message in a bottle by jason kohThis is an old thought.

I wrote it for siliconsalley.com but that was a long time ago and I thought I would bring it here now.

the place where waves shake sand in circles

I was talking to Emily about doing this column. [Author Note: Emily was the editor who asked me to write the column.] And she said, “It’s about women and internet communication.” And I said, “Oh well I am a woman [no fresh comments about the name, I have a note from my gynecologist to prove it] and it is on the internet and anything I say is communicating so just by virtue of me writing it it is on topic, right?”

And Emily said, “Exactly.”

That made me feel really smart, like I had caught onto something maybe most people hadn’t. Emily is very charming though and with charming people, whenever I feel smart, I have this suspicion I might not really be smart, making me feel smart might just be what is charming about them. Hmm.

Max’s post continues below the fold.
