Light On the Devil's Chord - Day 29
Somehow, 
Forward, and headlong
I knew it was day again

There was a shift in the dark mutterings of the Devil,
Who now refused to sleep as I refused to sing,
Almost an anticipation in his voice,
As if he...

Patsy Foley Was Roly-Poly in 1947

Vigorously feeling vital everyday...
Every minute...every second...come...

Visit to Antietam
Alone I arrive, walking from Frederick
over the gaps, across gentle hills
out onto a knoll
overlooking this burnished landscape.
Before me I see countless writhing rows
of indiscernible shapes gathered
in terrible rituals mid fire and smoke
darkening the sun.
From distant...

Premium Member BiPartisan Dissonance
When oppositional cognitive dissonance deflects focus,

She sends me passive-aggressive messages,
bread crumbs leading back in time
