Happy Christmas 2009!


When I was a managing editor on a monthly in the 1980s I had folders for every month. I embellished this one for Christmas. It shows the advent month coming full speed from off stage and emblematic train going round the tree [or tries to show said]. That train is coming! Happy Christmas, happy world! - J.V.


Just a panthering train
cross the swells of the carpet
Through oriental valleys
and their piled paisley sockets
Through skyscraper wrappings
the apple spanked harlotty papers
and things
to returnto your feet.
- Christmas Locomotive, 1967


Note: Traveller visitors will notice a few broken links. We got rid of our dial up when we got rid of our landline, and Netcom closed down the original site. I thought the Web was forever. Have back up for those pics and stories, but good luck finding them, Jack.
