Imagining the Past
She in all black, athletic, blocky, her audible exasperation at the many cosmetic choices on CVS’s shelves.
-I won’t go into that party with you looking like a goddamned bull dyke! Get some makeup at least!
-But I am...
-But you don’t have to...

Free Speech Ain't Norman Rockwell
Thus Town Meetings with
& crazies & haters for
their warped views
of The Constitution.
Every meeting possesses,
too, an upright senior. His
subtext: I got mine &
fuck the rest of you!
Probably from some posh
Sun City next to a high
school without microscopes.
Yes, Interior Colonialism
excludes in the home of
the moneyed brave
and deluded free.

Senator Kennedy died. Great Massachusetts Liberal!
And last of a dynasty. A rich one.
And yet he supported the poor and middle classes, no?
To an extent. But a rich man generally favors his own class.
And the other legislators?
They're bribed to act rich.
And lo and behold, after a few years, they attain that lofty status.
It’s almost a miracle!
Proves that American dream is within reach for some--
with the aid of corporations and their bagmen.
Your bottom line?
It's all class!
And self-reinforcing, yes?
You got that right!

Remembering my Dad's union, ITU, mostly linotypers,
Newspaper management dispatches a fresh Yale grad
to what they know will be a wild, raucous meeting
& membership responds with shout & screams, plus
an accomplished double-talker who commences
his questions clearly enough, but then mish-
mashes hilariously & at agonizing length.
“What? Excuse me?” sputters callow interpreter of
Plutocracy, furiously digging his attache case.
Oh well, he’ll get chances to learn, including
this occasion, but, I suspect, remain a fool,
a prosperous one due to class, of course.

How y'doin, Super? And who do you hate today?
Cast stays the same, with minor additions. I follow the news for those.
Then how 'bout that Bollywood star--fantasy love for millions of Indian women!-- detained by airport sleuths at Newark?
What he deserves for being stupid! Prominent spicks should paint their faces.
How 'bout our faces?
No problem. Already white.

escorting me through depraved hells before my first day at Police Academy.
We both know I’m naive, so this crash course.
The lowest a stinking drug house in slashing rain.
“They get high and fuck on top of filthy rags.” Succinct Biff roughs up a few
but gets no info.
Once on the flooded pavement, I must declare, “A fitting end to the tour.
Let’s get coffee or something stronger. I’m soaked!”
“Hey!” he laughs, under the mercury streetlight his gnarled face even more menacing, “We got us another stop!”
“You can’t get lower! It’s worse than Dante!”
“One circle down yet. Republicans.”

Health Legislation Public Option
Put it in separate Bill.
That way no Repub

in fear and trembling

labeling them Socialist.
Dems who vote against
are Republicans. Get it

They’ll spin insanely after.

-We’re getting lots of bang for our bucks!
-An investment in freedom!–or some fuckin thing.
-But cameras also shows many crazy jerk-offs, birthers and Nazis. Even a few signs praising Hitler.
-Diarrhea! Who gives a flying fuck WHAT they say or scream?
-No worry about content then? We do support causes, some legitimate. Good for these Democrat Town Halls to hear them!
-Causes-shmauzes! Disrupt! Disrupt! Disrupt! Which part of Shut it down! don’t you understand? Keep offering your daily prayer to St Karl the Rove.
-O ye of little fuckin faith!

The Republican lunatic-birthers, tea baggers and queer-haters are shrieking down speakers at Town Hall Meetings.
Their right, no?
I don’t know about that. World would profit by their loss.
Speaking of which, they lost most elections in near memory. They’re sore
sore sore! And will be for a good long time.
It’s The Republican Sore Losers’ Club!
Yeah, but they still have the Constitutional right to bellyache whether
you like it or not.
They should be locked up as dangerous nuts! Like the way they should’ve
locked up Hitler and thrown away the key!
Uh huh? And how about you freaks back when? Shouting down
the speakers defending the war? If they locked up all you crazies,
we’d still be in Vietnam.
I screamed at the war pigs because I couldn’t stand hearing any more
of their murderous lies! Anyway, that was for a good! What good are these...?
More they defuse their fury in politics, more their wives stay alive.

I’ve done it! Changed my registration to Democrat!
Chief! What a shock!
Going with the power! GOP is now the party of bible thumpers and
raging halfwits. A southern party can’t win. Period. There are some
reform currents, but it won’t really kick in until 2020, if ever. I’ll be
retired, and you’ll be the Great Enchilada. Maybe.
Whatever I can do! I’ll switch if you want, uh...basic philosophy
of Republicans still favors our gang, though, don’t you think?
Certainly not trying to undermine your heartfelt decision.
Too many problems! I’d rather work with the Dems. They’re on message.
I don’t agree with much of it, but target is clear to me when I pick
up the phone. And the target is in the 21st century!
Should I switch then?
No! Definitely not. You’re still really a true believer and that’s good!
I’d like you to be even more Republican. Get into meetings, talk to
Always important to know what the hillbillies are up to. Out of power and laughable, but still dangerous.

We lu-UVE Republicans! They put true-believer hacks in
to pretend regulation. We make mega tons of hay while
the sun shines!
Unfortunately, sky got totally black ultimately!
Then the Democrats brought light!
In the form of rescue moolah. Pure gold!
We can't lose. Grateful to both. As their campaigns will realize.
Too bad there had to be such greed, stupidity and incompetence
Where was that, exactly?
Not in this office of course!
What’s that old expression? Money never lost a war?
Just knock off the predicate off that sentence. Money never lost, period!
You are learning the advanced grammar of Capitalism!
It’s a short book.
And brutal!--I remind you.
Why we even want our Little League team to fight to the death!
Bet your ambitious ass!

-They had this laughably primitive way of interpreting dreams.
-A Fingo-2 would've answered.
-They couldn't afford even that.
-They depended on something called money. Nothing supplied like it is here.
-Did they all have it?
-Some did, and kept it away from the others. Lots of horrible anxiety! Which led to loving it.
-How sick! I heard of a being in Sector 19 loving another.
-What was done?
-Not a thing. Its own punishment.
Monday, August 03, 2009
-I can't! Philosophically opposed. As a matter of fact, it makes me sick to my stomach!
-Then the proper medicine is to sweeten your campaign anew!
-Besides, who'd believe it? I'm on record, even Face the Nation, speaking out in very strong...!
-Let us worry about what people believe.
-I have to say no!
-You have to say yes. Discussion closed.
