Faulkner contacted Chandler who said he had no idea. The screenwriting team for Raymond Chandler’s The Big Sleep (1946), writers William Faulkner, Leigh Brackett and Jules Furthman, as well as director Howard Hawks, had been busy parsing the plot of the novel and wired Chandler to find out who was responsible for chauffer Owen Taylor’s […] The post WHAT’S YOUR PROBLEM?

AUTUMN BY RICHARD LEBOVITZ

Days grow shorter; nights grow colder. North winds blow, and leaves rain down in cascades of color. A skein of geese cries out goodbye, leaving behind an empty sky. In the garden, withered blossoms hang on dead and dying stems, their seeds scattered and waiting for the inner voice that will rouse them from the […] The post AUTUMN BY RICHARD LEBOVITZ first appeared on The RavensPerch.

SUBNIVEAN ZONE BY RICHARD LEBOVITZ

The field grass stood so tall the deer trampling through left a maze of hidden trails. But now it hugs the ground, battered by rain and wind, buried under ice and snow, forming intricate tunnels where mice, voles and kin can escape the bitter cold. Yet within this cozy cavern, life is seldom safe or […] The post SUBNIVEAN ZONE BY RICHARD LEBOVITZ first appeared on The RavensPerch.

SCAR ON MY FOREHEAD BY MORGAN G. CAIRNS

by admin
2d ago
As if God had touched His thumb there, pressed poetry into my thoughts, made a way to hear His voice inside as well as out. Hair pushed high off my forehead, I can see it so clearly in the mirror, small, centered and slanting toward my left eye, an arrow to the memorial of my […] The post SCAR ON MY FOREHEAD BY MORGAN G.

RAVEN KING BY MORGAN G. CAIRNS
The Ravens Perch Magazine
by admin
2d ago
Blue-eyed boy with the scarred mouth keeps his hair like fire pulled into the braids of his home— the braids of his enemies. Venom-burned shoulders tell of the years spent letting them control, betray, blame him until he broke and made himself new. These days, he roams the forest, king of the ravens and friend […] The post RAVEN KING BY MORGAN G. CAIRNS first appeared on The RavensPerch. The post RAVEN KING BY MORGAN G.

WEST ROCK TUNNEL BY MORGAN G. CAIRNS
The Ravens Perch Magazine
by admin

Used to think myself Geppetto in the mouth of the whale, salt-white stripes painted along the half-lit path of yellow lights. Twenty-five years old now and still, I watch for the way the world shifts to black and white when I’m halfway swallowed, halfway to the day. Rolled my window down after dark, after church, […] The post WEST ROCK TUNNEL BY MORGAN G. CAIRNS first appeared on The RavensPerch. The post WEST ROCK TUNNEL BY MORGAN G.

THE DAY NOTRE DAME BURNED BY MORGAN G. CAIRNS

Sounds like the day the music died. We sit in my honors class, Material Culture and the Built Environment, and watch as the rooftop collapses. The fire crackles and I flinch. At home, my sister cries, and I think of her voice ringing in that hallowed place, the best choir solo she ever earned. I […] The post THE DAY NOTRE DAME BURNED BY MORGAN G.

POOLING BY TRACY AHRENS

Through haphazard openings I penetrated you, stimulating you. I pooled, settling in a fallen leaf deep on the forest floor. You do not seek me anymore, though cloud-filtered light makes my evaporating surface shine. I’m cupped in a hand of nature that’s overlooked and decomposing, like me. My existence will be short-lived, purpose incomprehensible, as […] The post POOLING BY TRACY AHRENS first appeared on The RavensPerch.
