Sunday, February 5:
I will be playing a set of original songs at the L.I.C. Bar in Long Island City, Queens.
The show starts at 5 pm with Pete Lanctot & Ginger Dolden.
I will be on at 6 pm, followed by Maya Sharpe at 7 pm.
Come and be warm by the fire and hear some tunes
Elements of Style
Posted by Brian Dan Christensen in Humor, literature, Poetry, Prose, Uncategorized, Verse on July 21, 2015
I don’t use emoticons
Or exclamation marks
And I don’t capitalize words
To make them brawl and bark
I use italics sparingly
Like fish sauce or Danish Blue
Lest my paragraphs become
Potpourris or cheese fondue.
Language is like music
With precision, grace and mojo
Exaggeration makes the world
Pocket-sized and so-so
From Shakespeare to Updike
They never needed an air hammer
The real power-tool for the job
Is a little thing called grammar.
