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,



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.
