A Scale, A Mirror And Those Indifferent Clocks

I sit before flowers
hoping they will train me in the art
of opening up

I stand on mountain tops believing
that avalanches will teach me to let go

I know
nothing

but I am here to learn.

Well, the average person is constantly being bombarded by propaganda crafted by the elites. Why do poor people with missing teeth and high blood pressure get foaming at the mouth mad at the thought of “socialized” medicine? Why do working class people have such negative views of unions? Why do they think bombing random countries is about protecting America’s freedom? Because they’re told to feel and think that way every single day.

The oligarchs and elites control the airwaves. They craft the narratives. That is why we need campaign finance reform to keep big money out. That is why we need to crush all voter suppression. And most of all, we need to elect principled politicians and get rid of the misanthropes on the Right.

I’m a dirt person. I trust the dirt. I don’t trust diamonds and gold.

I decided on you, don’t you get that? I decided on you. I don’t want to go fucking other people and then walk around feeling thrilled and then sad, or empty, or whatever. I like the smell of your hair, and I like the sound of your voice, and I fucking decided on you.
