Revolution

October 31, 2011


God, I was cynical. And with good reason. But I think I was also happy. Easy to criticize the world from the comfort of a nice soft woman.  Action. Hadn’t considered that. Then I wouldn’t have known what to do. And knowing would have had to be sure. That it is the right thing to do. That’s the problem with comfortable moral people. They wave their fingers but refuse to do anything. I think a revolutionary has to be a bit of a socio-path. He has to be able to step out of the moral confines of his upbringing. And that is dangerous. Because out there it is easy to get lost. And become the tyrant you so much wish to dethrone.

…………………

ONLY AN AFFILIATE

sitting……………………….at ease

grinning…………………………with a handful of photographs

feeling……………….to the depths of your soul

…………………………that the tube is a card trick

“revolution is no answer.

you don’t get the weekends off.”

baying………………………………………at the masterpieces

“many of the poems are (or seem) haphazard

loosely conceived and similar to one another.”

waiting………for the tourists who will ask questions

…………………in some blubbering gibberish

…………………while they show photos of gangsters.

“and do you know what’s really cute?

before angie goes to sleep

she kneels down at her bed

looks up at the heavens

and prays to the U.F.O.s”

begging…………to ask that important question.

…………………….who needs transcendental medication

…………………….when one has the C.B.C.
