Rules of NoirRules of Noir by almcdermid
Chandler said it best: This is not a fragrant world.
No good deed goes unpunished,
There are no innocent victims, and
Just when it looks as though everything will work out,
It gets worse.
No matter how bleak it gets, it can always get worse.
If there is a good woman, there must also be a femme fatale.
The protagonist can be a victim of:
b) police misconduct
c) police procedure gone wrong
d) his own weakness
e) circumstances beyond everyones control.
Being wrongly accused is a frequent and fruitful device.
The question Why are these bad things happening to me?
is best answered Why not?
Its not darkest before dawn; its darkest before the end.
Souls: high kites with holessouls are high kites with holes, the sky is like a crystal ballSouls: high kites with holes by Piscesandthediamonds
Blue sky harrow:
How lost for adjectives
To break our fast up there
Sugar, tea, and birdsong?
Of course, kites, souls
Curiosities, wind being free
While we, ground strung Gullivers
Flat beneath the
Of the wolcen burnspot
What do I call myself?
My sex deliquesced
An epicene, I'm a lover of honey bees
A curling fern:
We slip around like
In Lilliput ponds.
We dive in as
The tadpoles stop
At the empty
Of an underwater statue-
Arms like levers:
Blackening the coats
And peeling back
Stripping time of
We see the sky
Where it is skyless;
It remains an opal;
In the bowl

BOO! BMB collabapalooza 3.0yeah... it has been a long while since BMB has seen an action, and I apologize for that. but, I am jonesing for some heavy collab action, so I am running up the flag to see who salutes.
the idea here is that ALL participants submit a stanza/line/whatever for collaboration and that all participants write off each of those seeds.
if you wanna play, just reply to this journal or note me. sign up will last a week or til we get at least 10 participants, whichever comes first.
