Ramblings

the stoop out front is nothing like the table i fell through last month while on the phone with an emergency few would understand. three armenian men in suits argue a building away, but their voices flood the street & i can’t stand how pop music has devolved into shit-talking about being rich. capitalism has made a commodity of the past so every generation to come will have no culture within its grasp.

the man smoking in the street has impeccable timing as his cigarette burns out right as his friend pulls up in something fancy. a page is turned by the wind like a wildfire. i’ve set myself up. i’ve come to terms with what i’ve lost but fear the losses still to come. i pay more attention to those pangs than the pain in my back. the soil here is all spoiled in this land of secret panic & public displays of perfection.

there are no stars out tonight over hollywood.

absolutely hilarious to me that this sticker could be posted by the left- or right-wing at this point. granted, the right-wing makes up their problems like these insane anti-vaccine ‘patriots’ or those with ridiculous flags for ‘blue lives matter.’

but the left has a cause against biden—on the climate crisis alone, he sold oil & gas drilling leases days after the climate change summit where he took an 85-car motorcade & then fell asleep— a far cry from his electoral promise to fight a “battle to save the climate.”

(not even going to try getting into the infrastructure bill, which isn’t even as much as the military & corporate welfare budget.)

are they the fools for continuing late capitalism until the world burns up or are we for continually accepting this nonsense? I’d make a tag for hypocrisy but it’d be paired with politics 100% of the time.
