REMEMBER, WHEN YOU HOLD A PISTOL TO SOMEONE’S HEAD, YOU’RE ACTUALLY POINTING THREE FINGERS AT YOUR OWN

REMEMBER, WHEN YOU HOLD A PISTOL TO SOMEONE’S HEAD, YOU’RE ACTUALLY POINTING THREE FINGERS AT YOUR OWN
Eldon (Craig) Reishus

 

Call me Clive. My South Dakota mother’s idea. I don’t know where mom got Clive, and much later in Chicago, when Herbie Hancock needed a session drummer, he also had troubles figuring. »You’re Clive?«

 

In Hindi the word Yantra (machine) comes from the word Yantrana (pain).

 

Clive (no relation) Gildersleeve owned The Wounded Knee Trading Post. Clive helped the Indians he discovered find a trade route to the Faces (Mt. Rushmore). The Lakota call He Sapi (The Black Hills) »the heart of all things.« AIM warriors kidnapped Clive and torched his buildings.

 

I know a woman named Tatiana Tatalovinia from Sosnovy Bor. »In Russian Tatiana told me,»Tatalovinia means town tattletale.«

 

»I could have guessed that«, I said, »next time let me guess before you blab everything.«

 

In Hindi the word Tantra (inflate) comes from the word Tantrana (conflated).

  1. MM welcomes Eldon with three superb and fascinating pieces of writing. This a man doing his own thing, and making it work.

  2. Very much a breakthrough. Should be read aloud.
