a poem for today, 14 July 2012
[a syllable sorted sonnet of four sentences and its image]
Building a road or transit system can sometimes be a more radical intervention than debunking an ideology.
The problem with this sentiment is that I have an overwhelming urge to explain this to my followers and to everyone else.
Their idea is you calculate who has the same tastes, the same fantasies, the same holidays, wants the same number of children.
But it is appropriate, in the light of the earlier discussion, to ask just how dialectical this now turns out to be.
