A New Socialist Party

April 25, 2022


On May Day, at Grandview Park at 12:30pm, yet another civic political party makes its entry onto the stage. This time it is a new party with an old name, Socialists.

Everyone is invited to their founding launch.

Poem: (Lo)ve

April 25, 2022

ecce homo
this Jew ex machina
who’s purloined Pauline
crashed the Whore
of Rome’s machinery

— a sudden stoppage
in the
constant(ine) gears
which had weathered
the (st)orms
of barbarism and buffoonery —

died on a tree
say it
(s)aint so
devoid of (e)motion
qui(e)t, silent even
as the public gawked
and prodded
b(lo)ody hands agape.

Agape! he cries,
through the tears
renting his b(lo)ody flesh
almost as ba(l)dly
as we have
rented his b(lo)ody
super(ficial) image
through the years

in the
par(ox)ysm of death
he begged
his go(o)d forgive
those who
(k)illed him
with their fears
