The Axis of Evil

What does Princess Diana, Area 51, Edward Snowden, the N.S.A., secret drone attacks, financial meltdown, student debt and the war on pot have in common? 

ANSWER: They are all entangled in cover-ups and lies. 

After years of denial, and to pacify our insatiable need to know, governments are preempting top secrets by releasing bits of disinformation through misdirection, a form of deception in which our attention is focused on some things while distracting us from others. “Coming Clean” is the stasis of a new state-confessional, so pathological it blurs the distinctions between privacy and transparency: mythology is “truth” and science, education and facts represent the  “axis of evil”.

In a Lonely Place

I was born when you kissed me.
I died when you left me.
I lived a few weeks while you loved me.

Haiku for the NSA (or, “INTERCEPT THIS!”)

Egypt needs water:
Algeria, Morocco,
Afghanistan, too.

Fertilizer bombs,
Airline tickets, swimming pools:
Syria eats dirt.

Tick-tock Palestine,
Israel and Iran at war:
Don’t forget Iraq.

Trucks filled with diesel
from Kuwait and Tunisia:
Blowing to pieces.

Haiku for Egypt

Egypt exploding,
the President is speaking

too little too late.

Obama's news speak
"blah blah blah, yada yada"
follow the money,

A public statement:
when is a coup not a coup?
Good night and good luck.

The Party of Suppression

A Dream

I had a dream I was on a subway from San Francisco to Las Vegas. I only had small change and paper money, pieces of paper folded in the middle like inside fortune cookies. The rent was due, but I still had a job and this was payday; but I didn’t show up for work. Instead, I took a trip and lost my suitcase with my cell phone and cameras and I lost my apartment, too. My dreams are filled with anxiety and feeling there’s someplace I have to be but can’t get there. Someone told me that’s the best way to get to where I’ve never been. Is that true?
