..from a forthcoming book… ‘Cultural News’


 

 

 

 

 

 

Cultural news of the day: Batman cacked, Isis attacked.

I #amwriting some great poems, but only I noticed.

Without alteration in these things –
whether I receive the Pulitzer Prize, or the Grand Slam
at that archetype of fine dining Denny’s – of
inverted totalitarianism where many fleas attract
unyielding attention to the minor buzz and bite
they and their like contrive of architectural articulation
describing exactly nothing in a unmemorable way

of fake celebratory revelations, enshrining
deceit, and denial while concealing the approach of
the creeping dead,
obviously our culture is poised for doom in this false dominion,
once again.
