12.7
a fine kettle of
hawks we have here,
rising on hot air

hawks

and also


generals and majors
drone on with military decision
just following orders, sir


Here's my inspiration, deceptively upbeat, by the ever-clever XTC.  The song remains a stroke of genius, although the video is goofy--can you spot a really famous British entrepreneur?

looks like pizza, smells
like pizza--but let's shoot it
just to be safe


Comet Ping-Pong
I have a ton to say about this one, primarily that in order to effectively distinguish fact from fake it helps have to have an excellent grip on metaphor.

  1. Enjoyed the XTC (Saw the famous entrepreneur; also noticed that the lead singer reminds me of Eddie Redmayne). Ugh about all the current events!
