Farewell, Dear Leader

From ivory perch,
arms-length musings on the East,
(U.S.A. long time):

Nuclear power,
Opaque state apparatus,
Schrodinger's cat, dead.

Orphaned, we stare a
moment of uncertainty
in its squinty eyes.

A Holiday Greeting From Father

Dear Son Boy,

Grampy wants to remind us to bring our warm boots with us. Apparently a mountain lion has been killing some of the cattle in the field back by the old woods. Rumors are it might be a hundred year cat like the ones Gram Barnes and the first people talk about, like the one that carried off gramp's brother when he was a boy. The wind is howling and the snow is falling. We’ll hunt on the full moon.


Your father,

Sure-Eyed Teetering Tom

"...and if you stare into Cinnabon, Cinnabon stares also into you..."

"She thought about what she would have been in a different time. The horrible fate of the most beautiful woman in the village. Assuming she were not sold into slavery, she could escape the indentured servitude of domesticity only by way of agonizing publicity, her whole life spent resignedly catering to the pleasures of men, all sense of self externalized in their gaze, unable to touch herself except through the calloused, grasping hands of a peasant. It takes remarkable fortitude for a beautiful woman to be able to think past the next meal under such conditions." - Condaleeza Rice, No Higher Honor

“You can develop a machine, and you can move the mud, but the mud wins.” – Barack Obama

No, sorry, I have nothing to say to you."
