I’ve been asked to provide a link to a short work that combines politics and poetics. Instead, I offer two.
We’re hurtling towards war and so my paring is about war.
One, the apogee of solidarity and therefore lyricism.
The other, an embodiment of violence as a distant abstract painting.
One, at ground level.
The other, at towering heights.
One, as violence showers down, the living breathing blood from their veins.
The other, a 100 billion dollars for a 100 billion bombs.
One, the common view of the human being.
The other, god-like perspective of the distant ruler.
One, a worker’s movie.
The other, an owner’s movie.
