Fire And Anger Let You Rest

Resurrection:

Pain cannot contrive for you
Humility beyond your own,
Stripped of your body to the bone.
Passion will not phrase anew
A fabric more than skeletal
To veil the candor of your skull.

Joy Davidman.

I Love Unicorns

RMJ might be right, might be wrong, but whatever: impeachment unicorns are necessary, more than ever.

Do you want to feel how it feels?


Do you want to hear about the deal that I'm making?

For Some Guy

The Flute:

where
in all
the awful
apparatus
we acquired
to hasten
freedom
is
the
flute
the
fine
thin
flute
the flute
thin
thing
the
thin
thin
thing
which
thinner
than
the
rain
rings
freedom
in

PS - Ericka found a bundle of letters/postcards stashed by my mom in an old calligraphy box, wherein a note from a friend was contained including this poem.

Tackleberry Never Had Kids

RMJ:

So, when you hear about the woman who terrorized Denver today and put the FBI on alert, and then ended the threat by taking her own life (presumably with the shotgun she bought when she got to Colorado, all perfectly legally because we only want to keep guns from people who will harm themselves or others, and how do we know for sure who they are before the fact, right?), please remember that she had a family who loved her, as we hope we all do:

“Please just come home, Sol,” Gardi Pais told his daughter in an interview with The Daily Beast hours before her death. “Everyone is looking for you and we just want to make sure you are OK and don’t do anything you will regret. This whole situation has been a nightmare, I don’t know why she would do this.”


I have a daughter; I can't imagine the pain this father and family are suffering now.  The national nightmare is the mass shootings that scare us so.  This story is only a personal nightmare; but it still involves a shooting, and people who will grieve.

As I saw on the Twitter Machine, no law abiding person ever killed somebody with a gun.  Tautology.  QED.  Game.  Set.  Match.  Thoughts and prayers.

Write, I Haz A Blog

Yup, I vowed to get back into blogging here, then I started blogging elsewhere and doing other stuff other places IRL.  The Interesting Times are upon us, man, for good or ill, and me and my peeps are just riding the wave into a zone...of danger.  Rest easy, fellow humans.
