For some time now, I’ve wanted to send Donald Trump to Hell. I mean this literally, not as a figure of speech. I want him to inhabit the palpable, sensory Hell that religions have long conjured up with scenes of sulfur, damnation, and screams of perpetual pain from those who once caused grievous harm to their fellow humans.
On the cusp of the most important election in these United States since the eve of the Civil War, a sobering fact is that our own history has eerily caught up with us, just as our history caught up with the Nazis of Germany between the First and Second World Wars.
Healing begins with putting Trump’s exhausting psychodrama behind us and getting back to loving and caring for one another as Americans.
Donald Trump has been a master of carnage in a way no one could have imagined.
…a mortal splendor;
meteors are not needed less than mountains;

It was the summer the Israelis withdrew, leaving
a landmined no-man’s-land of phosphorus orange groves,
blighted with white like the kingdom of the Snow Queen.
A Post-Coronavirus Economy Can No Longer Afford to Put the Pentagon First.
When the captain got old

nightmare every night
In 2015, Myanmar, a country controlled by militant Buddhists, began an organized process of genocide against the Rohingya, a Muslim minority. Aung San Suu Kyi, the leader who promised to protect them, has facilitated the genocide.
There is no such thing as the State
And no one exists alone;
Hunger allows no choice
To the citizen or the police;
We must love one another or die.
