"My blood alone remains: take it, but do not make me suffer long.”

~ Marie Antoinette ~
Being intelligent is not a felony. But most societies evaluate it as at least a misdemeanor. — Lazarus Long
Joseph Brodsky


Twice I woke up tonight and wandered to

the window. And the lights down on the street,
like pale omission points, tried to complete
the fragment of a sentence spoken through
sleep, but diminished darkness, too.

I'd dreamt that you were pregnant, and in spite
of having lived so many years apart
I still felt guilty and my heartened palm
caressed your belly as, by the bedside,
it fumbled for my trousers and the light­-

switch on the wall. And with the bulb turned on
I knew that I was leaving you alone
there, in the darkness, in the dream, where calmly
you waited till I might return,
not trying to reproach or scold me

for the unnatural hiatus. For

darkness restores what light cannot repair.
There we are married, blest, we make once more
the two-backed beast and children are the fair
excuse of what we're naked for.

Some future night you will appear again.

You'll come to me, worn out and thin now, after
things in between, and I'll see son or daughter
not named as yet. This time I will restrain
my hand from groping for the switch, afraid

and feeling that I have no right

to leave you both like shadows by that sever­-
ing fence of days that bar your sight,
voiceless, negated by the real light
that keeps me unattainable forever.

~ Joseph Brodsky
The trouble is,

You think you have time.

This ties back to the conversation we are having on the "Why Roman History Is Still Relevant" thread. And why making small changes for the betterment of all is so difficult.

While I don't disagree with the truth of that, I will point out that if the Green party were to reach the same level of political power in the United States, they will be just as beholden to corporate power as the Republicans and Democrats. The most important thing is to change the campaign finance system.
