“TAD CASTLE” by JTK.CA

“TAD CASTLE” by JTK.CA

I am Jonathan Tad Ketchen
( JTK.CA ).

My last name, Ketchen, was Kitchen several generations ago. Kitchen was an occupational surname, meaning, the Kitchens were not necessarily related to each other; they just did the same job. My ancestors were kitchen workers in a Scottish Lord’s castle, in Peebles, Scotland. They left Scotland for Canada in 1862, settling in Whitby, Ontario, later moving to Brucefield, Ontario.

My dad is a Presbyterian pastor, so I have lived all over Canada and the United States. I am now happily settled in Guelph (pronounced “Gwelf”), Ontario, Canada.

Best wishes to all of my fellow Ketchens!

“BECAUSE I DON’T HAVE TO” by JTK.CA

I share my http://NudistPoet.com and other sites online because I don’t have to. If I “had to,” I “wouldn’t.” I’ve always had an aversion to obligations. I just make up my life as I go along. To dig deeper into my brain, read http://bit.ly/TadsSevereOCD

“HUNK-NAPPING” by JTK.CA

“HUNK-NAPPING” by JTK.CA

As she handed him a cup of tea,
The man, who was chained to a chair,
Asked his abductor when he’d be free
And how many police were waiting out there.

She looked out the window, telling the man,
“I see no people outside;
Just squirrels and trees and a trickling stream.”

“I’m not holding you for ransom.
I just think you’re kind of handsome,
And I’d like to spend a day or two with you.”

A gift from my best friend Kathie Anderson. :) While planning and executing this photo, I came up with the title, "SANTA FROG." My photographer friend Bob Housser told me I have a gift for titles. I think so too. ;)

"NUDIST IN RESIDENCE or PROFESSOR OF NUDITY" by JTK.CA

I wonder if any colleges or universities with art departments have any openings in those job categories? I'd consider them if I could remain naked anywhere on campus.

Just kidding, sort of.

"R.I.P. Mrs. Lyon" by JTK.CA

R.I.P. Mrs. Lyon ( http://t.co/qjJ7CpxHxr ), my boss with the southern charm. -- Love, your former Great Hall horticultural engineer/table crumber/vacuumer.

How wonderful, the dining hall I used to clean's now named Craig M. Lyon Great Hall, after her. Yes, her first name was Craig. She is one of the many reasons my two years as a student at Covenant College, in the late 1980's, were so wonderful.

"GOOD?-BYE" by JTK.CA

"GOOD?-BYE" by JTK.CA

There's a vacuum in my soul
That's longing for you to fill its void.
There's an emptiness within
That makes me feel so paranoid--
Paranoid that my future
Will be so grim,
Paranoid that it's my future
You won't be in.

I DON'T want to live without you.
I really want you to stay.
I DON'T want to live without you;
But if it must be so,
I'll do it anyway.

And I'll still love you
More than crimson words can say!

“MEDICAL MASK MYSTERY” by JTK.CA

MEDICAL MASK MYSTERY” by JTK.CA

Warm breath caresses my chin.
Vapour of life trapped within.
Cloth covers a potential threat.
Tied around my ears and neck.

Stripes of green crossing white.
Metal strip fits my proboscis tight.
Now you’re safe from anything
The air from me to you might bring.

I hold the instrument in my hand tight
And wake up when you turn on the light.

*

Before I woke, I answered a ring,
An imaginary patient calling in.
With a breath in my brain
My glasses fogged
And I dropped the dental mirror,
And my foot’s reflection cracked
With the luminescent flash
As you sent filament flaming
In my psyche
With a thunder crash.
