365 11/29


You had to win, you couldn't just pass
The smartest ass at the top of the class
Your flying colors, your family tree
And all your lessons in history

365 11/25


What constitutes a real live human being is more of mystery than ever these days,
and men each one of whom is a valuable, unique experiment 
on the part of nature 
are shot down wholesale

365 11/24


My immortal soul, perhaps you went into an Archelon ischyros,
swimming with its sea-turtle nose above water,
then diving into extinction

365 11/23


And if I get the money, well, I'll ride the same old train
But I guess your chances come but once and boy, I sure missed mine

it is Lee Andrews and The Hearts
In 1957, singing 
I sit in my room
Looking out at the rain, my tear drops are
Like crystals, they cover my windowpane,

365 11/20


The country is grey and
brown and white in trees,
snows and skies of laughter
always diminishing, less funny
not just darker, not just grey.

I am I am I said I'm not myself
But I'm not dead and I'm not for sale
So keep your bankroll lottery
Eat your salad day
Deathbed motorcade

We must not only vote but fight to vote.
The voting booth really is the one place on earth where the least powerful
equal the most powerful

365 11/5


It's as if we're kind of like the proverbial lemmings just happily marching off the cliff,
led by leaders who understand very well what they're doing, 
but are so dedicated to enriching themselves and their friends in the near future
that it simply doesn't matter what happens to the human species.

365 11/4


In deep confusion, in great despair
When I reach out for him he is there

365 11/3


Literally

365 11/2


But now it's me who's being low and looking for
the bullet shot.  All my life, I'd heard the warning
in his voice and in the moment's heat
I hear it yet.
