The Newscaster Dreams of John Dee

Thanatic magnetism impels

Now the head

Is crowded with extemporaneous fistfights

Knife attacks

Pint glass attacks

Demonstrations

Uprisings

Riots

What now what now but a bunch of innocents lined up against a wall and shot.

Thoughts, illuminating and tangible, are a mosaic composed of the most violent acts imaginable, a tapestry where the Lion is attacking the Madonna, where the rabbits and lambs are overwhelming the unicorn and removing the unicorn’s horn with broken bottles and smashed pint glasses.  

John Smith
