May Medusa

Monday, May 25th, 2020

Got a great gig going.

Here’s my 56th monthly feature on Medusa’s Kitchen past 54 months.

Many thanks to publisher/editor Kathy Kieth… she has a magic touch in matching fotos to poems and poems to flow.

She puts up a new feature every day of the year, for years and years, maybe even decades.

https://medusaskitchen.blogspot.com/2020/05/life-aint-easy.html

My last book of poetry – Where Never Was Already Is, 2018 , Crisis Chronicles Press – consists of all 244 poems and 29 of the illustrations that appeared on Medusa my first 27 months.

A little bit of unmooring is a good thing
Letting the rope slacken to enjoy the fern bouncing to the silver spring breeze which beckons like a reminder
of expanses of time like ice cores
filled with childhood oxygen

New green, grackles effing freshly on
the clean palate of a spring bough

which like expanses a beckons

a virus stronger than lies

Thursday, May 21st, 2020

Trump’s desperate to open the country for business because his reelection depends on how well folk are financially.

It’ll be counter-productive… and ugly.

By opening too soon, the virus will rebound stronger and larger, and many more people of all political persuations and financial straits will die enmass – which will both reduce his base by death and piss off the survivors.

The first wave of the 1918 Spanish Flu killed 3 to 5 million people… then people got tired of taking precautions, returned to business, and the second wave killed 20 million people.

(Wikipedia says “The death toll is estimated to have been anywhere from 17 million to 50 million, and possibly as high as 100 million”).

All Trump and his 1% will accomplish is mass death, loss of confidence in both business and government, and financial chaos – all of which will make his reelection chances even worse.

He’ll be killing folk for no reward.

Looks like it’s lose-lose for Trump no matter what he does.

Which is win-win for those who survive.
