WHEN DID IT ALL TURN TO SHIT IN THIS FUCKING EMPIRE?
[TIME-SAVING WARNING: If Twitter-sized gulps of text are all you can normally take; if you usually access the Net via childish screens designed for FACEBOOT or INSTASCAM: this place is probably NOT for you. Looking for facile trifles with predictable punchlines, hoary tableaux or pithy snacks of Twee? Looking to skim what you have already skimmed a thousand times before? Yearning for a Liberal echo-chamber or a nasty Right Wing suppository of rusty Brillo and dubious gold? Roll on, traveler…!]
If you ever read anything hereabouts that feels too scary, always remember: it’s okay, kids, I’m Black! I’ll be your Special Guide to and through The Mystic…!
HOW TO READ THIS SITE:
I publish essays, poems, songs, novels and works of fiction here; the first drafts that I present are very close approximations of their ideal versions, on the first day, subject to continuous polishing as the week wears on. On the third or fourth day the pieces are usually as “done” as they will ever get.
“Only if you’re really independent can you write really well…. I always lived from my own initiative, never was subsidized, no one gave a damn about me, to this day. I am against all subsidies, all patronage….”
PS TO THE FOOD and/or TRAVEL BLOGGERS who keep “liking” my posts (in hopes of building their brands by getting “likes” in return): I am not a part of the “likes” economy. Please don’t bother.
