Wars are economic. Mars uninhabitable.

. . . we can concur that sound bites are highly malleable wedge issues. . . 

Wasting assets and false needs are clear and prescient dangers --- expedients of greed and fear, dare I say, detractors from social welfare, which is goal orientated toward good, self-actualized - sane - healthy human beings.

And our better angels.

Hence, the contra to social welfare is social warfare.  The circumstance a…

Hello Old Friend!

Champagne, Stadium Mustard and Milwaukee

On National Ave. the Clement Zablocki Veteran's Memorial Hospital overlooks the autumn woods and steel girders of Miller Park; silver-golden fireworks as loud as a drop forge echo on through the timelessness and style and swagger of sweet victory.

 

 

Again, the sweat of passion, reserved for October, when it was 1957.  The hickory sea of painted chairs in the Milwaukee County…

Post Eclipse Blues

We'd  bee lined from Wildcat State Park cozy yet wind-blown in our let HRC Nissan SE on past Lodi-Arlington, road signs, through MKE via old Route 18, threading Bluemound boulevard toward midday already, beneath pewter cloud cover, Guido (Coltrane like-lungs) doing the soprano sax repeatedly of Leon Russell's Bluebird.  Student hands on the wheel alert, diaphragm breathing. Clean, sober as any DA!  Eastward with me going on & on glimpsing Storybook unique homes to the N…

Come Along With Me

Amber May sun rose from my jacketed vantage an arms' disc just about an hour ago through the 100' and more Civil War aged sycamores, ash, basswoods as a loud geese flock winged incredibly fast through those largely deadwood tree tops, just above elicit spring green leaves while SUVs twice as expensive as my parent's 1957 three bedroom brick ranch, that squared sturdy new construction not far, one, two zip codes NW, those trucks and an old Caddy with loose pipes, over yesterdays fresh…

Summertime Sundays

'"Let me give you an example.  Let us say you want to be a great musician, and you want your music to create wealth for you.  But you are frustrated in making it work.  So you get drunk from time to time.  You cannot communicate with an inner energy if you do not maintain balance, if you get drunk all of the time. Drinking becomes an irrelevant side path, so dump it.

Hart of the Deal (a writer's log)

I'd promised my landlady not to spontaneously type here until all the rent is caught up, PIF, and an adroit avatar input rather than this LOCH NESS gargoylism proffered to us'in newbees.

However a torrent of sustained irony keeps me hanging on, e.g.: my capital F failure as a poet, journalist, short story writer, vignette writer, all of it, the poet, pauper, pawn and ....

Even now the apparent waste and near worthlessness of my 24 month earnstwhile endeavor,  or so:…
