alice thinking about it

poem: love is not a rom-com (for most of us who loved)

love is not a rom-com
(for most of us who loved)

in movies or on television
people get to start again -

i think it happens in real life too:
when heartbroken lovers (lost)
realize there's something worth
the cost in the knowing of the
other and of being together, oh!

to learn their love anew -
it's a scenario rarely true.

poem: on a country road, what sky

on a country road, what sky

i.
on a country road at night past fields of corn
sprouting beans in darkness through the car
window i look for the moon and see stars too
this is what sky looks like without city lights
to blitz it, here, the city a turn off by the view.

ii.
years of passing vast stretches of farms -
endless fields & barns, a lot of time in cars
watching land go by & figuring the distance
between old wooden hydro poles & marking
how long it took to get anywhere --- so long.

iii.
through the car window i look for stars & moon
i consider the distance between them, me & you.

democracy isn't democratic

"Democracy isn’t democratic – you should know that by now. In fact, it’s one of the greatest tools of mass manipulation ever conceived. Public selection of government? Are you mad? Who in their right mind would want, never mind let, the average Joe have any significant influence over a power structure? That’s just fucking crazy talk. " - matthew good
