before that first cup

past due gray


end of the holiday

a square of pale grass

beneath the tent



old mill stream

a bramble stalk

in perpetual motion

Tisk, tisk!  No, I haven’t been cured of my Referer Madness, and I won’t go into detox.   Instead, I’m turning the obsession — backtracking from the f/k/a  Referer List to search-engine queries that bring hits to this website — into a new, frequently-updated  Feature, called TISK  [the inadvertant searchee and the katydid].


You’ll discover why [as with “stocking“] using “hogtied” at a dignified website might not be a good idea, and see how powerful weblog search-engine placement can be.
