FIRST CAME THE CLOUDS…

Moving way faster…
Than usual…
Why…
Almost sprinting…
Across this Mercurial Melbourne Sky…

36-degrees…
Bitchin hot…
As Cyclone Tempest…
Dropped in…
Unexpectedly…
Last week…

damn…
This city…
Built on the seeds of fire and ice…
Eternally…
4 fucking seasons…
In one day…

Meanwhile…
dear ole Mr President…
Was at it again…
Havin’ some old-fashioned-Southern-fun…
Paying lip-service…
TO HIS TEMPLATE FOR DEMOCRACY…

The basis of which…
Can ever only…
Truly lie…
In dictatorship of another kind…

Cable News Channels…
Predictably…
Hung on by their fingernails…
To his every motivationally-manicured-word…
Intonation…
Mannerism…

Sick of the drawl…
The rhetoric…
Tired, old, sly-dog fist…
Shaken in evangelical zeal…
Join Us Or Be Damned…

Some may disagree…
And praise the Lord that he is leading them…
Down this good and righteous path…

Al-Ittihad daily…
Declared…
“‘ The new Iraq is born today…’”

And furthermore…

” Now that Iraqis have voted, the new line among American critics of the Iraq War is that ‘elections are not democracy.’ Well, elections may not be sufficient for democracy but they are necessary. Everyone knows that struggle and compromises lie ahead if the new Iraq is going to succeed. But yesterday’s
demonstration of courage and hope by millions of Iraqis belies those cynics
who say Arabs and Muslims don’t want democracy.”

STILL…

My mind flashbacks…
To the Memory Hole…
And the casualties…

Boy footsoldiers…
Just carrying out orders, Sir…

Night-Vision goggles…
Infa-red scopes…
High-powered rifles…
Internet Cafes @ Base…
Melancholy Latinos…
Looking for a break…
In the cycle-of-exploitation.
That is their legacy…

Blood in, blood out, bro…
An oath…
Till death do us part…
And it always does…
In the end…

WAKE ME WHILE I SLEEP…

As the trees crash all around…
The water rises…
Carrying the consequences of our actions…
To the surface…

Ecology…
So fucking fragile…
Human…
And otherwise…
