Rodak's Writings: R.I.P David Bowie

Dark Dawn: 1/11/16

There had been signs and portents for a week.
Then the news rolled in all the way from 1947
like a glaze of ice on the rotation of the cybersphere,
like the Alberta Clipper that raged on the day
I was born in frozen Michigan:  Winter 2016
finally speaking in its natural tongue.

And now January, its white ribs exposed
as bitter, calcified truth, points an icy bone
and rattles off a merciless axiom:

As David Bowie can suddenly die, so too can you

Rants: Why Trump Will Win

The average American does not really believe that the government is "of the people, by the people, for the people." Neither, though self-identifying as "Christian," does he believe that Jesus is God, or that there actually is a personal God. The average American is, in truth, a nihilistic wanker, whose main interests are, in order of priority, a bellyful of sugary, salty "food" and a head full of phantasmagorical, Hollywood-produced garbage and intoxicants. Trump has got it made.

Reflections: Good-bye, 2015

If I were going to make a New Year's Resolution, it would be to revive this blog and spend less time on Facebook.

But I'm not going to make a New Year's Resolution.

Fuck it.

Happy New Year, nobody.
