Passing thru N. Philly Station

after singing the blues

and passing on Afghani


Heading home again

eyes tired; mind too numb

to think Rimbaud, Nietzsche



the vision was eclipsed

along the breeze of a river

as boats splashed thru

the Delaware and the winds

of Kabul were silenced


Alone in a moment

and thinking poetry

which ultimately means

making poetry


the gall of the whole situation

is quite laughable

but indeed, is saying nothing

I have said everything


It’s not enough

It’s more than enough

Poetry vs Afghanistan

19 year war. Usa focusing on the East as Shanghai gets absorbed into China and seaways are poised to close and control commerce. Treaty countries only - usa backed out. Repercussions: China companies delisted from wallstreet - China buys farm goods elsewhere - not usa farmers. We shall see - 3-5K usa military "advisors" will shift supply chains, alter monetary flow, affect millions of citizens. Afghani is about to slide out of the public usa discourse. Thought inspiring write.
