for the record

“All discarded lovers should be given a second chance, but with somebody else.”
– Mae West

for the record

she keeps her


near the bed

neatly listing lovers

she has known

they wonder

does she grade

on the curve?




Lies, Damned Lies and Politics

“Any dictator would admire the uniformity and obedience of the U.S. media.”  – Noam Chomsky

“The obvious types of American fascists are dealt with on the air and in the press. These demagogues and stooges are fronts for others. Dangerous as these people may be, they are not so significant as thousands of other people who have never been mentioned.”The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information.
With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power.”  – Henry A. Wallace

“When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”  – Sinclair Lewis

“No matter how big the lie; repeat it often enough and the masses will regard it as the truth.”  – John F. Kennedy

Lies, Damned Lies and Politics

September 11, 2001

Every mother’s child is hit

Thousands of bodies

Crushed, shattered, incinerated

Folded, spindled, mutilated

And fifty states a wailing wall

Rescuers hurtled into overdrive

Choking down thick grey ash

Inhaling particles of death

Yeetgadal v’ yeetkadash sh’mey rabbah

Cover the mirrors

Wooden crates to rest the weary

Soggy with tears

Screams of the dead

Reverberate from the


To the Battery

And sea to shining sea

Rivers swollen with blood

The malignant mouth

Of the media

Bombards airwaves and print

Inciting the masses

Loyalty to the lone star dictator’s

Final solution




Make Hugs Not War.
