well then, here we are

of course, as Oppen put it, of course meaning following the course, the path, the bridge, and that is action, of course.

i haven't been writing much lately, at least not cohesively. Mostly things come in small collections -- an instant carried in thought, memory, language. This language seems vague though. What can we get through this vague language. Do we reduce to politics?

It seems spring. And everything that trills trills and what thrills thrills. but as always, it is season and dawn. This language may be metonymic.

I want to fight the bad guys.

In Texas, there is a law being discussed concerning public education. Under the proposed legislation, the state would allow only one specific textbook for each subject taught. This might sound democratic, but it isn't. We need some options on what we teach our kids. I'm not sure I would want the state congress labeling one textbook as "correct" under law.
