Political 'Science'

A minority.

Being on a thin branch

When the strong wind

Wants to uproot the whole tree.

Even here.

Even in the Land of the Free.


  1. This is beautifully profound, especially given the current climate of our politics.

  2. Thank you. Modest as this is, I wish I could assure all images 'worked' as efficiently, politics + poetry. Not easy. Takes the Nerudas or the Brechts or the Audens or the Akhmatovas consistently to merge the social and the poetic. The times must be pushing the extreme to drag me even this close to 'political engagement'.
