"We live in a culture of hysteria.

Hegemony

c.FTAA IMC

Yes.
That's exactly what it is.
The modus operandi.
Happiness!
Dysfunction-Style-Show.

Hegemony or Survival.
"Militarization of space."
Chomsky's doctrine.

Meanwhile...

Ratzinger's just slipped into the hot seat.
He, of the shifty eye.
And theological mind.
Bleak authoritarianism.
From an unenthusiastic former member
Of Hitler's Youth.

How funny is that?
78-year-old enforcer of medieval ideology.
Childhood specimen of the failed Aryan-vision.
dammit.
He gives me the creeps.
Once right hand man,
Now, Pope Benedict XVI.
If you don't mind.

Militarization of Space.
Militarization of Morality.

Endless...

ABORTION.
CONTRACEPTION.
SEXUALITY.
HOMOSEXUALITY.

Militarization of the very air we fucking breathe.

Political.
Papal.
Accursed downfall.
Either way.

A friend says:
"Write about that African parasitical worm that eats away your insides.
Y'know. It's kinda cool, like Ebola...."
I pause.
And think of trains derailing.
Going so goddamn fast.
90+ people have to die.
Got to fill the quota, folks.
Time's money, honey.
You know the drill.

As autumn surrenders to winter,
I remember a man.
And his words.
As he stood on a beach in Thailand when the tsunamis hit.

"It was eerie.
All I remember was the tide receding.
Going further and further out...
Until there was no water left.
Only sand..."
