The function of government…

The function of the government-industrial complex is to shovel money to the rich and convince the rest of us that we might be rich someday too.

Post Modern Poetry

A box full
of broken toys
today
looks like circuits
and dead screens
and cables,
not well-worn and
deeply loved objects
with inner life.

A Winged Town

A river touching the back of a town is like a wing, it may be unused as yet, but ready to waft it over the world. With its rapid current it is a slightly fluttering wing. River towns are winged towns.

–Henry David Thoreau
