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



March madness upon us  gnashing teeth  Lone demented woman

ringing my old mother’s doorbell  4 a.m. each morning this week

The centre will not hold   The world has become sick reality tv

Bad art  imitating bad life  imitating bad art   Fake news  Putin

blaming Jews  for election tampering    What else is new?


A nascent Spring hanging in the balance   What no one remembers:

It does not come  in times of extreme brutality    There wasn’t any

Spring whatsoever  from 1935 – 1939    We always thought it would be

an apocalyptic event to rent us from the garden  permanently    The

environment?  Nuclear holocaust?  We never suspected it would be a

buffoon with an orange tan   + a psychiatric diagnosis    His hour come

round at last


And now we’re on a collision course with pure  unadulterated  evil:  A

squat boy-man  with his finger on the smaller button  being courted

(sounds sexual  no?)  A marriage made in thugheaven   The beady-eyed

man with big muscles who likes to wrestle with bears  perhaps sharing

porn stars with Donald Duck   The trashing of NATO   The shitting on the

UN   The lying a total of 3,678 times in his first 13 months in office (see the

Fact Checkers report this week)


Spring  we will mourn you   Botticelli is rolling in his grave  He of  Primavera

+Venus rising from the ethers in a clamshell   Fertile earth   Fecund sea    A

cherub orgy    Today’s Botticelli: A naked pear shaped man  too orange tan

Dic-tator in a golf cart  with Stormy  Kim  +Vlad  unclad    What rough beast




Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

The best lack all conviction, while the worst

Are full of passionate intensity.


And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,

Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

(William Bultler Yeats  The Second Coming)
