On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
Leo Yankevich
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

New Word - Hoon

Hoon is a derogatory term used in Australia and New Zealand, to refer to anyone who engages in loutish, or anti-social behaviour.

It's a new word for me. I guess it's short for hooligan.

    It's a good word. I'll remember that one. I had a bunch of hoons in the bus all night last night who insisted on singing along and clapping to music that was playing several decibels too loud. They were a drunken rabble.
