365 12/9

... good governance from reflection and choice...
instead of being forever destined to depend for their
political constitutions on accident and force

365 12/6

Bounty and your wealth in land
Terror in a best laid plan
Watching them come and go
Tomorrow and the yesterdays

365 12/5

I know where treasure is waiting for me
Silver and gold in the mountains of Spain
I have to see you again and again

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

365 11/22

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 just want you to know that I 
Don't hate you anymore
There is nothing I could say
That I haven't thought before

365 11/17

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
