a poem with audio commentary about political poetry
Boom. BOOM. B. O. O. M.
lovely words here so happy to have found the page. left or right - people must be able to speak openly :)
I think some of the left is actually business as usual capitalist ideology but with emotive images of equality/justice as an elaborate disguise.
OK -I’m gonna get it- have been wondering. Thx.
I remember that Polley film - really good. And nice to know you know MUBI - sometimes a bit hit or miss but I’ve seen great stuff there.
Excellent performance by Ulrich Mühe - who, when asked how he got the part so right said “I remembered”. Sadly he died not long after that film. I subscribe to MUBI - a good platform for less mainstream films. That’s where I saw it.
PS - just rewatched “The Lives of Others” - fantastic films
100 million times agree. And love the spare but powerful poem
Incisive. Nothing more needs to be said. Good job!
And in an odd sort of way, "a gun is an empty book."
Beautiful poem Sherman.
After reading/listening to the article you posted "When Anti-Racism Comes for the Anti-Racists" I thought it was yet another example of how separated we have become, moving only in the circles of people/things which we approve of, all others be cancelled.
I really, truly, fear people cannot have open discussions anymore.
I fucking love this. Go ahead...ban me.
Twenty words say it perfectly. This is art.
You're absolutely right about the actions of the left. I'm a life-long liberal who, at 85, has been at this for a long, long time, but astonished (not for the first time) that anyone in our realm would think it's okay to change even a word of a writer's work to reflect a muddied version of our own time rather than a reflection of their own.
The stupidity is baffling. Who do they think they're satisfying? The other side? We don't give a shit about the other side. We despise the other side. Are they afraid of the other side? Then they need to stop pretending they're us.
