At night I ride a scorpion
And fight the gnats with blades of grass;
A minute seminarian
Communes me from a demitasse.

--Alvin Krinst, 1989


A Modest Proposal

If Obama wins, the racists and bigots who think it's morally suspect
to be a different color or religion move to another country. Really.
Go away, live elsewhere, hate elsewhere. Nothing here for you anymore.

And that goes for the racists and bigots in the media. Fox will be hiring...


November comes

"November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring."
-  Clyde Watson
