Rest in Peace, William Donald Schaefer, my favorite politician ever, who I would vote for today. Here's begging Hamster to comment.
Now, because I woke up with this song in my head and was going to post it solo as a second April theme song and not because it has anything to do with William Donald Schaefer:
- Throw out the money-changers.
- Beliefs beget actions.
- Of course it was.
- The coming collapse of the middle class.
- Srebrenica. America will be Serbia by 2030.
- Trump for POTUS!
- Food sovereignty.
- Back to normal.
- How avant is it?
- Gnostic gospel.
- Pink lady lemonade.
I had a blueprint of history in my head — it was a history of the martyrs of love, the fools of tyrants, the tyrants themselves weeping at the fate of their own soldiers — a sentimental blueprint, lacking depth — a ruled axis X and Y whose illusions were bearable . . . then unbearable . . . In that blueprint, I wanted to speak in a language utterly other, in words that mimicked how one of Homer's warriors plunges through breastplate a spear past breastbone, the spearpoint searching through the chest like a ray of light searching a darkened room for the soul unhoused, infantile, raging — but my figure of speech, my "ray of light" — it was really a spearpoint piercing the lung of great-hearted Z who feels death loosen his knees, the menos in his thumos flying out of him — the fate of his own soul to confront me beyond the frame: no room, no X, no Y, no "ray of light," no menos, no thumos, no Z — only sketched-in plane after plane after plane cantilevering upward and forever throughout space.
If Trump being the gooper candidate for Preznit pisses off Krauthammer, than I, too, am all for it.ReplyDelete
I wouldn't have linked my post today. You are too kind.ReplyDelete
It's provocative. And it's about a third rail of American politics. Plus it brings back the chicken/egg debate of religion and state power.ReplyDelete
As you well know, it's still a shithouse, and it's just fine. Sad day. Really, really sad day.ReplyDelete
Serbia? Why can't we be one of those other fucked-up countries whose team isn't underachieving or crap?ReplyDelete
