The Fall

            The fall was “said” to admit useless need to circumvent the inner problem that is life. 

Life itself –  your idiosyncratic view of life in relation to my hologramic experience of our shared reality – it’s a tacit agreement that 

  1. I shall be emotionally bolstered by the inevitability of death – 
  2. So that I can endure the rape and pillage of all things good by a coagulation of greed and ill-advised pride, built on willfully ignorant lies we grow up on like strict 9. 
  3. I am forced to accept a box of God that conforms Hitherto 
  4. with the help of culture,  society, the margins of history, shackles of geography, we continue, but knowingly, with the positive reinforcement of free will: the existential choice to stay in  prison because it’s better than what’s out there, the cholera, the Floods, the war never-ending, tasked with
  5. The uphill Sisyphean “battle” 
  6. essentially, 
  7. With a rock.



Twins 

You’re your own worst enemy 

Bringing me down for years 

The one with the least to complain about 

Craftmade crazy maker – fueling the fire 

Building a pyre 


You are exhausting, Henry.

Henry pouted.

He wasn’t exactly Woody Allen, who just wasn’t the same after husbands and wives 

      The fall was said to take about ten seconds. It would vary according to the body position and how long it took to reach terminal velocity — around 125mph in most cases, but if someone fell head down with their body straight, as if in a dive, it could be 200mph…

…and all thru my coffee break time

forever 

together

to live without you

would only 

mean

heartbreak for me

 

answer my prayer

say you love me too

1970 on this day the number one song was telling –

War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing

Absolutely Nothing

 

And yet,

here we are

He refuses to go

Before her

She looks at him

Says no

You go

first

This is it

All she wrote

tbe echoes

echo

just like they should

but nothing else

feels right

she grasps,

bridges the leap of faith,

startles,

stops.

 

He is white as a ghost.

What if-

HE HEARS

her think

before she says

WHY?

He thinks how nice it would be

She laughs out loud, creating

the biggest tremor yet

as if god has somewhere else

to be

rather than watching

John Ashbery and his wife

contemplate

the dark space between life

together

and the unknown

THAT

my loved ones

is what it means

to find love

among the ruins

to have lived this

life

with all you have

and all you are

and with that no

one

could

have

asked

more.

 

and yet

here

we are.

THE YEAR IS 1970

THE NO. ONE SONG

ON SEPTEMBER 7TH

WAS WAR

WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

 

 

2017 – COULD BE THE SAME AS 1984 BEING A BESTSELLER FINALLY OUTSIDE THE UK

GOD SAVE THE QUEEN THE FASCIST REGIME

POLKA DOTS AND MINI SKIRTS

BLACK JACK DO IT AGAIN

YOU SWEAR TO KICK IN VEGAS

THEN YOU FIND YOU’RE BACK

WITH OUT A PENNY TO

YOUR NAME

IN THE LAND

OF MILK

AND HONEY

 

wheel turning round and round

go back jack

Make Me Wanna Holla

 

A year later, the number one hit was by vanilla brite Mormon mama’s boy (his sister did not have anorexia) while What’s Going On would tell the truth. Again, all the tragedy does is oblige. It is a force of nature. Like Hurricanes Ravaging.

 

bad breaks

setbacks

 

violence increasing

trigger happy policing

panic is spreadin’

god knows where

we’re heading

 

 

 

by 1971

1971 landmark album, What’s Going On. Written by Gaye and James Nyx, the song depicted the ghettos of inner-city America as it discussed how the bleak economic situation would lead to someone wanting to holler and throw ones hands up.

A Declaration of Sentiments

It was 1919 all over again.
Except it was 1972
 then 1977, then,
the
203 years
of convincing

An alternative strategy for ERA ratification has arisen from the “Madison Amendment,” concerning changes in Congressional pay, which was passed by Congress in 1789 and finally ratified in 1992 as the 27th Amendment to the Constitution.
