The Silent Drummer
Low tide five miles dry
deeper than despair
smooth as breasts wept upon
by a generation of fools — cool fools
squeezing every drop out of reality

You have also shown how reckless and deeply stupid you are by taunting the people who will not forget who's side you are on...
…nd to advertising. I immediately block anyone who posts conspiracy theory or religious mumbo jumbo. School peers (graduating class 1969) know well enough not to bring their views to my site if they are not atheist, progressive, and educated. I’m not on Facebook to make friends and influence people. I stick to Dunbar’s number when it comes …
that's a pretty weird statement; this gives fuel to regressive faith faking fascists who brandish cancel culture...
My friend Nadine Rennert and I have been working on a Manga Opera, the Saga of Blue Wolf, for several years. The project started when I was still hanging out in Berlin. Since I have returned home to France, each year we meet in a different place for a self…
