CALIFORNY

THE NAKED FEET OF THE DEAD PHOSPHORESCENT IN CALIFORNY

Barack was on tv  late last night  He confirmed

what we all imagined: urban sprawl terrorism

is embedded in the heartland  +won’t be ferreted

out by boots on the ground   Obama explained  we

must stop selling weapons to folks on the no fly list  

It’s insane

 

And at the edge of the abyss this business of hope festers

Tashfeen Malik’s heart  dried+blackened now   Ms. Malik

radicalized mother  + partner in slaughter  San Bernardino

California   Her 6 month old daughter will live her mother’s

gold rush dreams   After foster-care   in eternity

__

 

Californy  a land rich in minerals   in gold and silver    I would say

beyond the wildest speculation  (Cormac McCarthy  Blood Meridian)

 

 

 

Winter  2015
