the trap snaps shut

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 3:40 pm

            late at night

      the cold white edges

             of the bed



         the cold night

 comes out of the stones

          all morning   


     in the dark

the trap snaps shut

     silent dawn

from Presents of Mind, haiku & illustrations by Jim Kacian

(Katsura/Red Moon Press, 1996).

the river mirrors

  • Crime & Federalism addresses Indigent Defense fees in Massachusetts, and

    posts a reply from assigned counsel Deborah Sirotkin Butler.  Our two cents gets

    tossed in, too, of course.  Legal Blog Watch encourages more input.  (prior post)

Other than pointing to my recent post on employed weblawggers who beg, I shall

offer no comment on today’s posting by the otherwise bon vivant Steve Bainbridge:

Pledge Break


The computer in my home office is dying a lingering death and I’m

going to have to order a replacement this week. So if you’ve been

thinking about hitting the tip jar in the left sidebar, now would be a

very opportune moment to do so. And I thank you.

laughing man small  Well, okay, maybe three questions: (1) will we at least get some special

programming, like they do during PBS pledge week? (2) what the heck will Steve do when

a good old California earthquake or forest fire strikes his home? and (3) to restore my faith in

macho neo-cons and libertarians, could someone please convince me that Prof. B is doing this

tongue-in-cheek as a caricature of the early alms-seeking denizens of weblog world?



begging actors–
even the horse’s ass
gets a blessing


begging at my gate
the geese lose
