  • John Tischer '71: Toothless In Tepoztlan

    A bull that cannot charge
    a cobra with no venom
    a carnivore with no hunger.

    Have I lost the will to live?
    I think I’ve lost the will
    not to die.

    Let’s face it, like all the
    toothless lions, ... more
  • John Tischer '71: Whirl World Of Fun

    Even amidst the apocalypse.
    That’s why the darkness doesn’t
    destroy the light, nor the light 
    obliterate the darkness…nothing
    gained, nothing lost. A sense of
    humor is your Baedeker to every
    strange world…even the one 
    you’re in.

    November is just around the corner, which means once again it’s time for AcWriMo! For those who don’t know, AcWriMo is the academic’s version of NaNoWriMo (in which people pledge to write a novel during the month of November). The academic ... more
  • John Tischer '71: Fragments Of A Bone Mirror (For Captain Beefheart)

    I just love that (deleted) title.

    Yeah, I need the challenge
    of putting the puzzle together
    from a few pizza crusts….

    I just thought I had to do
    something, then, I realized
    It was already done.

    of my money trying to figure me out.

  • John Tischer '71: Black Kraken Shoes

    My C.P.A., before he
    dropped dead in King 
    Soopers during tax season,
    looked at my baby, and said,
    “Ragnarok!” He wasn’t from
    Iceland, but, he might as well
    could have been. When I used
    to see him about taxes ... more
  • John Tischer '71: White Noise (for Jack Bruce)

    The T.V.’s on, and
    nobody’s looking…
    at least, it drowns
    out the thoughts
    cheaper than prozac.

    Pizza is part of it too…
    putting those adverts 
    into action is so satisfying….

    pounder is comprised ... more
