Never Happened

The sixth-century Byzantine historian Procopius secretly scribbled
a collection of defamatory writings about the Emperor Justinian
and other figures, whom he glorified in his official works.

When the writings were published, after his death, they became known as
The Anecdota, from the Greek for "unpublished items"--and gave us a new
word for amusing but unsubstantiated stories.

Ode to Coffee

It swims
dark as coal
warm as summer
in my cup.
The aroma beckons,
wakens me
on black, icy dawns
as it takes the chill
from my soul
and melts the edge
off my morning meanness.
Coffee is like a gentle symphony
whose crescendo rises slowly
as if pushing up the sun with one hand.

What got me started on a Berkeley jag? I'll tell ya.

Earlier today I was in the Cinema reading RR's autobiography. He was remembering Kreh's Pad in Berkeley from the fifties. It's where he met Pratt.

It was located on Los Angeles Street, Berkeley, while his mom's place in LA was on Berkeley Avenue.

I'm easily impressed, I suppose, by odd and quirky facts.

MANDALAY MANIFESTO

It is not POLITICAL
to demand that lawmakers
take steps
to reduce deaths
from gun violence
any more
than it is POLITICAL
to demand
better fire codes,
stricter food inspection,
and safer roads.

Not Dark Yet

Shadows are falling and I been here all day
It's too hot to sleep and time is running away
Feel like my soul has turned into steel
I've still got the scars that the sun didn't let me heal

There's not even room enough to be anywhere
It's not dark yet, but it's getting there
Well my sense of humanity is going down the drain
Behind every beautiful thing, there's been some kind of pain

She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind
She put down in writin' what was in her mind
I just don't see why I should even care
It's not dark yet, but it's getting there

Well I been to London and I been to gay Paree
I followed the river and I got to the sea
I've been down to the bottom of a whirlpool of lies
I ain't lookin' for nothin' in anyone's eyes

Sometimes my burden is more than I can bear
It's not dark yet, but it's getting there

I was born here and I'll die here, against my will
I know it looks like I'm movin' but I'm standin' still

Every nerve in my body is so naked and numb
I can't even remember what it was I came here to get away from

Don't even hear the murmur of a prayer
It's not dark yet, but it's gettin' there
--Bob Dylan
Ain't dark yet, but it's gettin' there.

The Mandalay Manifesto...
That got me to thinking about something that occurred to me just the other day.

In a Moment of Silence


While I prayed for the victims

I became the next

At Saint Peter's Gate

He was sending a text

So l let myself in

With no vetting or screening

And found Jesus himself

On a lamppost a 'leaning

He didn't look too good

Said nothing ever changed

That heaven was off the rails

And that God was deranged

I could see his point

It was reflected on earth

The world had gone crazy

From well before my birth

So we stood for a while

In that awkward way

When words are never enough

And there is nothing to say

Cold Blooded Old Times

Cold-blooded old times
Cold-blooded old times
Cold-blooded old times

The type of memories
that turn your bones to glass
turn your bones to glass

mother came rushing in
she said we didn't see a thing
we said we didn't see a thing

and father left at eight
nearly splintering the gate
cold-blooded old times

Cold-blooded old times
Cold-blooded old times
Cold-blooded old times

the type of memories
that turn your bones
turn your bones to glass

and though you were
just a little squirrel
you understood every word

and in this way
they gave you clarity
a cold-blooded clarity

Cold-blooded old times
Cold-blooded old times
Cold-blooded old times

though how can I stand
and laugh with the man
who redefined your body?

Op/Ed From a Hophead

The problems of controlling guns are many--

Drumming up enough support to influence politicians
Figuring out who gets to keep their weapons
Taking them out of the hands of those not on the above list
Keeping them away from psychos once guns have become illegal
Changing what we watch on the media to create a Great Society Like We Had Before
(I am oversimplifying the problems for the stoopids in the audience)

The likelihood of America outlawing guns 'n' ammo is teensy-weensy
I am not at all sanguine about the chances for success
But it's worth a try and it may not be too late
I care about what you think
But go tell it on the mountain, not here, for I am already a tenor in the choir

Korean Heartbreak Blues #9999

When the dark horse pulls me by the ear
When there's nothing left to fear
There'll be nothing left for nobody
Until the day I die

I'm gonna tell these bald headed lies
I'm gonna choke on 'em baby
No come-over deep state blues
Don't you realize

It ain't fake news to me baby
When the Korean fat boy wails and cries
As he lobs another missile
Closer to our skies

With the Russians in collusion
Don't you know nothin' from nothin'
It's more than a teenage heartbreak
If we're all gonna suffer a radioactive high

Go to the future baby
There's no magic pizza pies
When the dark horse pulls me by the ear
When there's nothing to fear oh why?

There'll be nothing left for nobody
Under these radioactive skies
So I'm gonna tell these bald headed lies
Until the day I die
