Catholic Architecture

Catholic Architecture

A white house with a folly
A tower attached.
On the side
A hand painted saint
(Lovingly painted)
Peeps over a high wall
Which surrounds the white house.
His loving gaze
Is interrupted
By a line of broken glass
On top of the high wall.
The saint
Lovingly dares
The outsider,
Or the stray cat,
To intrude
And recieve his loving blessing
In loving lacerated

I guess I had meant to post this awhile ago, slipped my mind? I know I saw the Youtube clip sometime ago? Why I'm posting this now, no reason what-so-ever other than stumbling over the clip again.

The song "Catholic Architecture" is off of Robert Wyatt's classic album "Dondestan". Which I believe is the first album where he started taking his wife Alfreda Benge's poetry and setting it to music as he did w/ this song.

. . . In other news, I'm about to start intensive studies (at least that's the plan?) into the great anglo/irish comedian Spike Milligan. I'm grabbing the audiobook version of the seven volumes of his WWII memoirs which are read by the man himself and also most of the Goon show that are available.

The other day I almost did a Samhain inspired post about Spike Milligan's epitaph but I guess now I'm doing a post-Samhainian post about his epitaph? Anyway, his tombstone might be my second favorite tombstone (the 1st favorite honors go to Mr. Ozu). If you click on the picture of it below you will see the phrase "Dúirt mé leat go raibh mé breoite", which is Irish for "I Told You I was Ill"!
