An Isolating Event (a poetic endeavor)

An Isolating Event

            by Joel Howard

 

sinking blue

skies to mud and Anarchy, a

convergence  

of downcast souls, where  

lame wishes so pure bay bereft

at doors front back right left;

 

yet down further fall

the heavens already deep-sunken,

to briny-deep darkness,

            where dreams   

ever rest at nature’s  

insistent pall.

 

Today heed anew the taunting and

bottomless echo, a promise to re-

emerge, to again bloom ‘neath

parting clouds, leaving

old orders  – so very

rough-spirited and trying  –  to decay,

knowing the sun rises (at nature’s behest)

somewhere beyond

this paralyzing wave’s crest.

 

HunkerShelter – A Poem

HunkerShelter

            by Joel Howard

 

do you prefer

shelter to

hunker,

 

hunker to

shelter,

 

or perhaps

fuck-this-noise-I’m-

French-kissing-strangers-and-licking-doorknobs

is more your cup o’ tea?

 

Ah well, enjoy, my friend.

Far-right US pastor becomes first person banned from Ireland under exclusion powers | TheHill

What this dangerously delusional “pastor” says about Jews and LGBTQ folks is beyond the pale. That Ireland had the good sense to bar his entry into their country is one blow against the normalization of this lunatic’s beliefs. Anderson is a dangerous and mentally unbalanced man, and his having a stage to spout his nonsense is akin to a patron yelling FIRE in a crowded theater. And remember, Anderson’s “church” pays NO taxes, rather we the taxpayers subsidize his bullshit.
