Virus shipped with new Asus Weee mini PC

Oops.  May have gotten too many ‘e’s in there.  Think you’re safe with a new PC?  You’re not.  Vigilance is unfortunately the only watchword.

to, of, and for our beloved politicians

about truth and politicians

you give me

you are your

rehearsed repeated and


that of heart, theme, and soul: of course

i believe you.

how could i not?



I must admit there are some indications that Obama may be in respects a truthful man.  (We live by lies.  We define ourselves by them.  We give our selves the “slack” that our peers must deserve if we do–but somehow we never manage to get around to giving it.  More and worse than that truth is a matter of language, of words–and that means that when I say something that results in you hearing truth, it’s exception not rule.)  Honesty is disastrous for politicians.  But then, I don’t believe in free will today.

sheared visions

sheared moves

how unfortunate
our mutual moves toward and past included
no resolution, at all

current poetry: slanted visions

slanted choices


these were, it seems, slanted choices
that you gave me, hemmed and bordered
by need, though you termed  those
mostly half-fancied and unreal. it was rather
odd.  i’d known you fancied yourself
mistress of all that was ours, namegiver and guardian of the gate

or at least i thought i did.
certainly i didn’t know what to do
as, crying, you embraced me
and then ran from the room
crying that i’d betrayed you
though in truth i didn’t do anything; i was too stunned.

years later, too, i find myself wondering if…
and if i’d welcome you or not.  i don’t even recognize
that face in the photos.


Any comments would be appreciated.  This form is more centered on communication than form, but it is meant…oh, never mind.

iraq (through vietnam’s perspective)

iraq (through vietnam’s perspective)
these are
     marred reflections, stung
within the eye like some breezecast sandgrain; i
   pretend to view the sky,

for portents while really avoiding
the past’s dark and secret visions
of foreign wars and past century’s

duly named and proclaimed
victories, never
of course admitting defeat

and i realize these are mazed echoes.
relevance’s beaconed guide, meant ward
against meaning’s lack, has suddenly become

our jailer,
quite possibly
our executioner


–Remember that first and foremost I’m a poet.  I’m hesitating markedly over posting an analysis, or rather mostly where [in many ways same subject as poem, just in prose and therefore a hell of a lot longer and more visibly complex.  I have the feeling it will be under what was going to be my writing pseudonym (rather easy to find if anyone cares to look at all carefully), whether on LiveJournal or in a new blog I start here.  The reason is simply that I actually did have the clearance I claim, and there’s such a thing as overdoing visibility, potentially.  I certainly have kept my mouth shut about a couple of things.

A Real News Source

I’ve often thought that the much-touted “social networking” was at best a pale imitation of things that John Brunner thought of over thirty years ago.  [It’s also abuse of a valid sociological phrase.  Drastic abuse.]    The problem that newspaper forums run into is first of all timeliness and relevance; they tend to drastically underline the lacks–because newspapers that aren’t for the megapolis are actually rural in nature.  I don’t want the print in paper form.  I want all the niceties of computer access.


Topix may start filling the gap.  My stand on the matter in 1970 was similar to that of John Brunner; that knowledge existed in the masses, but in disorganized form.  The stumbling attempts toward covering local news in a relevant manner show the possibility still exists.  And for sure, this resource will expand.  I’d encourage anyone who can to get a username for the possibility of contribution.  Who knows, the Web 2.0 these people [my fellow nerds, mostly, I guess–and management; those are the ones with the rented brains] are drivelling about may exist someday.
