Joan Murray: Even the gulls of the cool Atlantic (poem)

 

Even the gulls of the cool Atlantic

Even the gulls of the cool Atlantic retip the silver foam,
The boats that warn me of the fog warn me of their motion
I have looked for my childhood among pebbles my home
Within the lean cupboards of motherhubbard and clipped Albion

A wind whose freshness blows over the Cape to me
Has made me laugh at the memory of a friend whose hair is blond
Still we laugh and run our hands over the sea
From the farthest tip of land to the end of the end.

I had so often run down to these shores to stare out
If I took an island for a lover and Atlantic for my sheet
There was no one to tell me that loving across distance would turn about
And make the here and now an elsewhere of defeat.

In my twenty first year to have the grubby hand of a slums
Be the small child at my knee knee the glistening chalk
That sails to meet the stationary boat the water sloping as it comes
And all the Devon coast of grey and abrupt rock

By gazing across water I have flicked many gulls from my eyes
Shuffled small shells and green crabs at my feet
The day is cool the sun bright the piper cries
Shrilly tampering the untouched sand with delicate conceit.

Up beyond the height and over the bank I have a friend
How are your winter days and summer actions
There could be little more than a tea cup hour to make us comprehend
A mature man’s simplicity or grave child’s sweet reaction.

Bert Bevers & Joep Eijkens: Haventijding

Haventijding

Ze laten water nimmer alleen en nemen ook kaarten
die niemand lezen kan mee. Geen schrik van weertij
hebben ze, en voor wroeging geen geduld. Schippers
hechten aan hun roer. Bedenken dat Maria Rome
nooit zag, nimmer voer. Hun schepen haten blijven.

Herman Melville: The Maldive Shark (Poem)

  

The Maldive Shark

About the Shark, phlegmatical one,
Pale sot of the Maldive sea,
The sleek little pilot-fish, azure and slim,
How alert in attendance be.
From his saw-pit of mouth, from his charnel of maw,
They have nothing of harm to dread,
But liquidly glide on his ghastly flank
Or before his Gorgonian head;
Or lurk in the port of serrated teeth
In white triple tiers of glittering gates,
And there find a haven when peril’s abroad,
An asylum in jaws of the Fates!
They are friends; and friendly they guide him to prey,
Yet never partake of the treat —
Eyes and brains to the dotard lethargic and dull,
Pale ravener of horrible meat.

Herman Melville
(1819 – 1891)

Will Streets: A Lark Above the Trenches 1916 (Poem)

  This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is john-william-streets101-4.jpeg

A Lark Above the Trenches 1916

Hushed is the shriek of hurtling shells: and hark!
Somewhere within that bit of soft blue sky-
Grand in his loneliness, his ecstasy,
His lyric wild and free – carols a lark.

I in the trench, he lost in heaven afar,
I dream of Love, its ecstasy he sings;
Doth lure my soul to love till like a star
It flashes into Life: O tireless wings

That beat love’s message into melody –
A song that touches in this place remote
Gladness supreme in its undying note
And stirs to life the soul of memory –
‘Tis strange that while you’re beating into life
Men here below and plunged in sanguine strife!

Making Evil: The Science Behind Humanity’s Dark Side by Dr Julia Shaw

A smart and highly readable exploration of why we think and do bad things.

Dr Julia Shaw shows us that the same dispositions that make us capable of heinous crimes may also work to our advantage. And, if evil is within all of us, should it be said to exist at all?

In Making Evil, Shaw uses a compelling mix of science, popular culture and real life examples to break down timely and important issues. How similar is your brain to a psychopath’s? How many people have murder fantasies? Can A.I. be evil? Do your sexual proclivities make you a bad person? Who becomes a terrorist?

Dr Julia Shaw is a scientist in the Department of Psychology at University College London (UCL). Her academic work, teaching and role as an expert witness have focused on different ways of understanding criminal behaviour. Dr Shaw has consulted as an expert on criminal cases, delivered police-training and military workshops, and has evaluated offender diversion programs. She is also the co-founder of Spot, a start-up that helps employees report workplace harassment and discrimination, and employers take action. Her work has been featured in outlets such as CNN, the BBC, the New Yorker, WIRED, Forbes, the Guardian and Der Spiegel.

Montague Horatio Mostyn Turtle Pigott: The Lion (Poem)

 This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is pigott-turtle-mostyn.jpeg

The Lion

(Being an essay written by a pupil
in Dame Europa’s School)

The Lion is a kind of Ass,
His silliness is simply crass ;
He’s such a tame, long-suffering beast
You cannot rile him in the least,
For, though he’s very, very strong,
He never will resent a wrong ;
So, though he’s very, very big.
The other beasts don’t care a fig,
But pinch his tail and tweak his ear.
For he won’t mind — He’s such a dear !
They give him most tremendous snubs.
And kill whole litters of his cubs ;
He’ll sometimes give one little roar,

OEROL – 14 / 23 juni 2019 – TERSCHELLING

 

De vaak gehoorde verspreking ‘op Oerol’ in plaats van ‘op Terschelling’ geeft aan dat Oerol de functie heeft gekregen van een plek. In 2019 kantelt Oerol de perspectieven.

K a n t e l e n d e  perspectieven

Oerol laat dit jaar de vergezichten, de perspectieven van de makers, en ook hun zorgen en hoop voor de toekomst zien. Een wereld waarin je wordt uitgedaagd je eigen inzichten tegen het licht te houden. Een tijdelijke samenleving waarin iedere deelnemer telt en de verwondering centraal staat.

Naast een sterk vernieuwend aanbod van Theater, Pop-up performances en Expedities, is er muziek uit alle werelddelen te beluisteren.

Nieuw dit jaar zijn onder andere de Secret Garden Sessions. Deze concertreeks met neo-klassieke muziek van Nederlandse en buitenlandse artiesten vindt plaats in de idyllische omgeving van Zelfpluktuin Groenhof.

Het geheel van Oerol Talks biedt ruimte voor reflectie voor zowel makers als bezoekers. Ook de kunstvorm spoken-word krijgt een eigen plek in verschillende onderdelen van de programmering.

Oerol 2019 – 14 t/m 23 juni

Oerol is een vrijstaat voor makers en publiek. Al meer dan 37 jaar biedt het festival ruimte voor talentontwikkeling, experiment en dialoog.

Better to consider
the small shapes in the gorgeous chaos of the world:
a snowflake flitting through the air,
swathes of blue and orange entangling the sky in their warm shawl,
glances to be tucked away like stones run smooth by rivers,
the shadows of our hands like wings, playing with the light.

Ian Humphreys: Zebra (Poetry)

In Zebra, a boy steps tentatively from the shadows onto a strobe-lit dancefloor.

Ian Humphreys’ much-anticipated debut shimmers with music, wit and humour while exploring mixed identities, otherness, and coming-of-age as a gay man in 1980s Manchester.

These acutely-observed, joyful poems pay homage to those who took the first steps – minority writers, LGBT civil rights activists, 70s queer night-clubbers and the poet’s own mixed-race parents.

A heady cocktail of the playful, political and mythical, Humphreys’ Zebra is also a creature of opposites – light and dark, countryside and cityscape, highs and lows. The collection moves from semi-rural England to the metropolitan hubs of Hong Kong, London and New York, circling its subjects, often finding the uncanny in the familiar, always drawing the reader centre-stage.

Ian’s debut full-length collection of poetry, Zebra, is forthcoming from Nine Arches Press in Spring, 2019. A portfolio of his poems was published in 2017 by Bloodaxe in Ten: Poets of the New Generation. His work has featured in magazines and anthologies, such as The Poetry Review, The Rialto, Ambit, Magma and The Forward Book of Poetry.

Ian Humphreys has won a number of awards, including first prize in both the 2016 Hamish Canham Prize and the 2013 PENfro Open Poetry Competition. In 2018, he was Highly Commended in the Forward Prizes for Poetry. Ian has also been published internationally in overseas journals and anthologies. His fiction has been shortlisted three times for the Bridport Prize.

Ian Humphreys has had work featured in journals and anthologies such as The Poetry Review, The Rialto, Magma and The Forward Book of Poetry 2019. Awards include first prize in the Poetry Society’s Hamish Canham Prize. He has been highly commended in the Forward Prizes for Poetry, and two of his poems have been longlisted in the National Poetry Competition. Ian is a fellow of The Complete Works, which promotes diversity, quality and innovation in British poetry. A portfolio of his poems is published in Ten: Poets of the New Generation (Bloodaxe).
