    The Baltimore Sun -- Jean E. Hill, 67, A John Waters Star Of Female Trouble, Polyester, A Dirty Shame

    "Jean Hill was my only African-American star. She was a talented comedian, a brave actress and a much valued member of the Dreamland acting gang I worked with in my movies," said Mr. Waters.

    "She had a personality almost too large for show business, and she startled closed-minded people in every level of society. Sometimes raunchy in her public life, Jean was always classy in her private one, and underneath it all was a real lady," he said.
    She was in quite a few of Waters' movies.

    Aw, dammit, man. Thanks for posting this. I totally missed it. I got the opportunity to meet him about 20 years ago, and it was a real pleasure. Despite his broad expanse of work, I was am infatuated with The Twilight Zone, so I talked with him about this whenever I got the chance. Condolences to his friends and family.

    Seamus Heaney died. :(

    Irish poet.

    "Clearances"

    In Memoriam M.K.H., 1911-1984

    She taught me what her uncle once taught her:
    How easily the biggest coal block split
    If you got the grain and the hammer angled right.

    The sound of that relaxed alluring blow
    Its co-opted and obliterated echo,
    Taught me to hit, taught me to loosen,

    Taught me between the hammer and the block
    To face the music. Teach me now to listen,
    To strike it rich behind the linear black.

    A cobble thrown a hundred years ago
    Keeps coming at me, the first stone
    Aimed at a great-grandmother's turncoat brow.
    The pony jerks and the riot's on.
    She's couched low in the trap
    Running the gauntlet that first Sunday
    Down the brae to Mass at a panicked gallop.
    He whips on through the town to cries of 'Lundy!'

    Call her 'The Convert.' 'The Exogamous Bride.'
    Anyhow, it is a genre piece
    Inherited on my mother's side
    And mine to dispose with now she's gone.
    Instead of silver and Victorian lace
    the exonerating, exonerated stone.

    Polished linoleum shone there. Brass taps shone.
    The china cups were very white and big --
    An unchipped set with sugar bowl and jug.
    The kettle whistled. Sandwich and tea scone
    Were present and correct. In case it run,
    The butter must be kept out of the sun.
    And don't be dropping crumbs. Don't tilt your chair.
    Don't reach. Don't point. Don't make noise when you stir.

    It is Number 5, New Row, Land of the Dead,
    Where grandfather is rising from his place
    With spectacles pushed back on a clean bald head
    To welcome a bewildered homing daughter
    Before she even knocks. 'What's this? What's this?'
    And they sit down in the shining room together.

    When all the others were away at Mass
    I was all hers as we peeled potatoes.
    They broke the silence, let fall one by one
    Like solder weeping off the soldering iron:
    Cold comforts set between us, things to share
    Gleaming in a bucket of clean water.
    And again let fall. Little pleasant splashes
    From each other's work would bring us to our senses.

    So while the parish priest at her bedside
    Went hammer and tongs at prayers for the dying
    And some were responding and some crying
    I remembered her head bent towards my head,
    Her breath in mine, our fluent dipping knives --
    Never closer the whole rest of our lives.

    Fear of affectation made her affect
    Inadequacy whenever it came to
    Pronouncing words 'beyond her'. Bertold Brek.
    She'd manage something hampered and askew
    Every time, as if she might betray
    The hampered and inadequate by too
    Well-adjusted a vocabulary.
    With more challenge than pride, she'd tell me, 'You
    Know all them things.' So I governed my tongue
    In front of her, a genuinely well-
    Adjusted adequate betrayal
    Of what I knew better. I'd naw and aye
    And decently relapse into the wrong
    Grammar which kept us allied and at bay.

    The cool that came off sheets just off the line
    Made me think the damp must still be in them
    But when I took my corners of the linen
    And pulled against her, first straight down the hem
    And then diagonally, then flapped and shook
    The fabric like a sail in a cross-wind,
    They'd make a dried-out undulating thwack.
    So we'd stretch and fold and end up hand to hand
    For a split second as if nothing had happened
    For nothing had that had not always happened
    Beforehand, day by day, just touch and go,
    Coming close again by holding back
    In moves where I was x and she was o
    Inscribed in sheets she'd sewn from ripped-out flour sacks.

    In the first flush of the Easter holidays
    The ceremonies during Holy Week
    Were highpoints of our Sons and Lovers phase.
    The midnight fire. The paschal candlestick.
    Elbow to elbow, glad to be kneeling next
    To each other up there near the front
    Of the packed church, we would follow the text
    And rubrics for the blessing of the font.
    As the hind longs for the streams, so my soul . . .
    Dippings. Towellings. The water breathed on.
    The water mixed with chrism and oil.
    Cruet tinkle. Formal incensation
    And the psalmist's outcry taken up with pride:
    Day and night my tears have been my bread.

    In the last minutes he said more to her
    Almost than in their whole life together.
    'You'll be in New Row on Monday night
    And I'll come up for you and you'll be glad
    When I walk in the door . . . Isn't that right?'
    His head was bent down to her propped-up head.
    She could not hear but we were overjoyed.
    He called her good and girl. Then she was dead,
    The searching for a pulsebeat was abandoned
    And we all knew one thing by being there.
    The space we stood around had been emptied
    Into us to keep, it penetrated
    Clearances that suddenly stood open.
    High cries were felled and a pure change happened.

    I thought of walking round and round a space
    Utterly empty, utterly a source
    Where the decked chestnut tree had lost its place
    In our front hedge above the wallflowers.
    The white chips jumped and jumped and skited high.
    I heard the hatchet's differentiated
    Accurate cut, the crack, the sigh
    And collapse of what luxuriated
    Through the shocked tips and wreckage of it all.
    Deep-planted and long gone, my coeval
    Chestnut from a jam jar in a hole,
    Its heft and hush became a bright nowhere,
    A soul ramifying and forever
    Silent, beyond silence listened for.

    -Seamus Heaney
