found the new issue of moria about an hour ago, so far i’ve just read the lovely poem by freke räihä (who, by the way, recently published two books in swedish). much in the issue to read later

this is the first poem i’ve written since the election. eleven days without a single line/phrase of poetry. eleven days of nausea, rage & panic about having to stay in the country for even a week longer. so this morning my dear wife simply told me to write any kind of crap, just to break the deadlock. & it’s by no standards a good poem. it starts from a line from an old bob dylan song: “now is the time for your tears”

now that all of

the north & central

european wasteland

has turned brown

now that the only

red we will see is

the blood of the refugees

& opposition running

down the drains

now that the green

sea signals the only

possible liberation

refuge somewhere?

Filed under: Uncategorized — larspalm @ 2:19 pm

until now it has been possible to live in sweden because the nazis have had no representation in the reichstag. in the election yesterday they got 20 seats out of the total 349. neither the fairly pale left wing or the democratic but still vicious right wing got a majority. this means, in reality, the nazis now have real power in sweden. & we all know what that means. this leads me to the headline. does any of you know a nazi-free country where a literary assistant nurse & a photographing social worker can find work & refuge?
