a queda

on the beach:
fishing boats in Gaza, 1948.
ever the tourist hot spot.

Today I unfurled my living room blinds entirely for the first time in weeks. Actually, I went so far as to remove one completely. I have assumed the pallor of a catfish basking blind in the filth of a blighted riverbed.

This is unusual because normally I like to let
as much sun stream in as possible.

Then again, there has been a surfeit of natural light of late. Makes me aware of how much I yearn to sweat it out on a beach somewhere, even if it means blistering like a rasher of thinly sliced bacon.

Anywhere right now but the Gaza Strip.

This instrumental - written by Tom Jobim and stolen from Loronix - has absolutely no connection whatsoever to Chemical Allie (sun factor x) or Al-Qaeda.
