Old Men

That clockwise beast called the hour

Weighed heavy on the backs of the old men

Who went to cemeteries to visit their history in stone

And fought to hold onto fleeting recollections

Of dances in the Summer evening

Painting a house some 'eggshell' shade of white

A game of chess on a stone patio whose perimeter was a balustrade in vibrant bloom

In time, on practiced schedules, they would leave

And come to learn that though...

MIDDLE SCHOOL

Wavy hair, combat boots

dark eyes, old books

rosy cheeks, chapped lips

guitar strums, coffee sips

open minds, closed doors

free thoughts, tamed words

mothers, daughters

friends and lovers

cheeky grins, hair pins

raspy voices, bold choices

foot taps and finger snaps

long talks, have a sit

I am an accepted misfit

'JP3D': New life in old dinos

Tuesday, April 16, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

Why would anyone want to see "Jurassic Park" in 3D when director Steven Spielberg's blockbuster 1993 movie has been available in multiple formats for two decades?

Two words: Steven Spielberg.

And you thought I was going to say: T- Rex.

Oh, T-Rex is big and frightening especially in 3D.

However, T-Rex wouldn't exist in "Jurassic Park" if not for Spielberg, perhaps the United States' best contemporary director who can and does direct all genres (for contrast, see "...
