the devil's backwash

(Leopoldo Mendez, "Deportacion a la muerte" [Deportation to death], 1942, via)

White noise, electric storm.


feverish years
what did we accomplish
save vast ruination

unable to thread the needle
of a time without witnesses
& we forget what snakes
panic chirrup of noun

are poisonous:

scattered, whirled

"This was always the role that Alt-America has played: a refuge for people who reject factual reality, a place where they can convene and reassure one another in the facticity of their fabricated version of how the world works."
