The New Paganism

All these questions. Countless questions. Dilating around the spheres of influence that we pretend to protect. Open wide. Inject the needle. Our gums bleed. Centuries of endless dejection.

The Gilded Age

The Gilded AgeI found an anorexic DisconnectA line slanted on two sidesI lay neath this Bloody tee peeSowed together fromLive hidesOh I will make mistakes in rantingFor the blood has made me blindBut I have seen a graven imageWhich my hate cannot abide I attended a fairly well known Christmas carol performance put on by…
