IT IS DANGEROUS TO READ NEWSPAPERS

While I was building neat
castles in the sandbox,
the hasty pits were
filling with bulldozed corpses

and as I walked to the school
washed and combed, me feet
stepping on the cracks in the cement
detonated red bombs.

Now I am grownup
and literate, and I sit in my chair
as quietly as a fuse

and the jungles are flaming, the under-
brush is charged with soldiers,
the names on the difficult
maps go up in smoke.

I am the cause, I am a stockpile of chemical
toys, my body
is a deadly gadget,
I reach out in love, my hands are guns,
my good intentions are completely lethal.

Even my
passive eyes transmute
everything I look at to the pocked
black and white of a war photo,
how
can I stop myself

It is dangerous to read newspapers.

Each time I hit a key
on my electric typewriter,
speaking of peaceful trees

another village explodes.


-Margaret Atwood

Thanks for adding me to your LJ. You seem cool :) I'm anti-bush too. As you can see from my journal entry about the war.

I love one handed molly. My third fav band of all time. Did you see them in concert?

I listen to alot of different music. Def. have to check out your band.

I saw OHM at a local college here in Battle Creek. I was thoroughly impressed and bought one of their CDs. Unfortunately a friend of mine borrowed it and I haven't seen again. I'm new to livejournal, my friend dave_the_wave (he's in my band) told me I should join... So far so good I suppose. It's definately a great place to vent about how much I hate Bush.

I saw OHM play a little bar in Buffalo, NY (Pokey Joes) March of 2002. I was floored and bought 2 of their cd's. I got my photo taken with Sadie. Unfortunantly, their website was taken down shortly after the band broke up.

I was trying to download your band, but the hyperlink doesnt work.
I get http:// file not found error.

Right now we have problems with the MP3s. I try to tell Dave and Sean to get rid of those links because they never work, but no dice. Those are old recordings anyway. One of our original members left, so our sound has been modified as a three piece. We're recording a full length album right now that should be done sometime around the new year. Somehow/ someday we'll get some songs online, and I'll let you know. Thanks for your interest!

About OHM, I can't believe they broke up, I had only just begun knowing about them when that happened. I loved that they took pics of the people at all their shows. Their website was great. I was in touch with the drummer Greg for a minute, but he hasn't emailed me back since the last time I contacted him. I was hoping I could get him to make a trade of CDs with me so I could get another OHM album. (Or two of course.)
