The Fiddle

Emperor Nero – as Rome burned – the year 64 AD,

played the fiddle.  Perhaps

 

it applied some sense of order.  Our response

has been the same.  We all watched it

 

happen.  The candidates / the cops lap up

the platform of love, then twist it like a curve ball,

 

aiming

to paint it immoderate.  Over and over.  But, as the fiddle

 

continues to play, we have descended

that bullshit cross, again, into the streets, hopefully

 

for real this time.  Let’s

let it spill out, the high notes of pragmatism be damned.
