breaking

Filed under: Uncategorized — larspalm @ 10:20 pm

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
