#219 The Great War

Unlike, say, the Gaelic
for kiss my ass, most
Declarations of In-
dependence are top-

heavy with awkward
or extremely dated
references. Some-
times they present

as an organic synthe-
sizer, a Granny Smith
apple perhaps, with a
sound set restricted

to industrial use
because of extremely
mixed reviews. At
other times as an

holistic framework
that purports to look
at all aspects of life
as spiritual practice

but then recommends
the confining of women
to the home & the use
of tanks to shell densely

populated areas. Colon-
ialism is a patriarchal
system. The methods
devour themselves.

#218 The Great War

Sometimes she con-
fuses words that
sound alike. Such as.
Violets & violence.

So. She thinks the
soldiers are off
picking flowers.
Have brought some

to her. She goes
out walking to show
them off. Back to
the sea. Dressed

for. All in white.
Morning. Her face the
color of violence. Some-
times she confuses

words. Not always.
Life is a parasol.
