Poem, 1.4.18 Let there be a poem now. Let one appear in the center of the room, in the air above the desk, and hang like a cloud, like a spirit conjured out of absurdity and desire. Like a pear without a tree. And I will bear it down and slice and serve…

It's days like this I wish Santa Barbara still had a respectable daily newspaper. We haven't, since the News-Press was purchased by an idiot billionaire, a number of years ago. But we still have a good TV news station. KEYT has a livestream at http://www.keyt.com/livestream. #ThomasFire #NQ

I don't believe that the big men, the politicians and the capitalists alone are guilty of the war. Oh, no, the little man is just as keen, otherwise the people of the world would have risen in revolt long ago! There is an urge and rage in people to destroy, to kill, to murder, and until all mankind, without exception, undergoes a great change, wars will be waged, everything that has been built up, cultivated and grown, will be destroyed and disfigured, after which mankind will have to begin all over again.
