"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

Since I no longer expect anything from mankind except

madness  meanness  and mendacity;  egoism  cowardice

+self-delusion  I have stopped being a misanthrope

(Irving Layton  poet)


Is it just me  or are we  collectively confused re: the goings on

at the Gomeshi circus down the road?  Certainly there seems to

be  an element of: scorned starfucker  to the 3 witnesses so far

All appear tragic  at times tragicomic  vixens   Vicious misogynistic

rhetoric?  Or just the misguided  +wounded   setting the victims

rights movement  back decades?


Doesn’t mean Gomeshi isn’t a dark+violent sexual tyrant    The

similar stories do paint a picture of an egomaniacal manboy  with

a hairpin trigger   It just calls into question the accusers motivation

The moments when: no  became  yes  became no  became   No doubt

there is a reasonable doubt  in the mind of Justice William Horkins

as there is for you + I?


Particularly in light of the fact that 2 of the accusers colluded in over

5,000 e-mails  discussing strategies  +imagining Gomeshi  fat  bald +

incontinent  awaiting trial   One alleged victim of choking  went so far

as to pen  a multi-page love-letter  ending with: i love your hands


It would seem that all 3  even perhaps Mr. Gomeshi  require compassion

+not a little therapy   Hopefully they will move forward  with some shred

of dignity   And the not so lily-white CBC  will be sued for an as yet

undisclosed amount




O, gather up the brokenness
Bring it to me now
The fragrance of those promises
You never dared to vow

The splinters that you carried
The cross you left behind
Come healing of the body
Come healing of the mind

(Leonard Cohen  poet   friend of Irving Layton)

Valentine’s Day  2016




Last night I watched Beyoncé closely   shaking her booty

at Superbowl 50   I want her to have more dignity     In

Storyville  circa 1860  the price of a teenaged virgin was

$800     A murky trajectory?     Now her little daughter

dances in a brothel reverie   *see Formation video

just released


My mind wandered to Obama   You just know the King of

Cool American Presidents was getting excited in the White

House living room   ‘Shellee shares his thing for Queen Bey

+when they move back to  not the south side of Chicago    a

menage is in the works   Big lummox-y Jay z  is decidedly

shut out     Can you blame them?


As last night’s Superbowl unfolded  I couldn’t help but feel for

Cam Newton   While he threw some deadly pigskin   mostly he

threw to no one    Then he pouted with lush caramel lips  until

the 2 minute warning


Worlds away yesterday  while America watched burly men dabbin

in a crazed football-bachanalia   the Roundboy  in Pyongyang launched

a satellite into Space   Extending North Korea’s potential nuclear reach

10 fold with the Unha-3  a slimjim erectile-projectile


This pointing rather convincingly to Kim Jong Un’s bad case of penis envy

It is also no accident that Dennis Rodman   clown-bacchus prince  worshipped

for his tatts + golden showers  is the new best friend of the baby-tyrant   who

just inched us that much closer to apocalypse  What would Peyton Manning say?
