DeToq

 

I know of no country in which there is so little independence of mind
and real freedom of discussion as in America.

Alexis de Tocqueville 1831

 

Cars tape the gun scene
with just the lens as witness,

the scrawl of the unseen
scrolling tic tic tic

through the machine.
Revenant is relevant:

a return from the dead,
a return from Hello?

electro-cardiogrammed.
There’s no squirrel

in this. Freedom is not
atoms in envy. You feel

and report back and the atoms
pile up into penc
ils.

Even breath, the bread
in breadth chewed down,

De Toq & the ampersand,
the struts of a superhighway

so super or so-so, all this
de Toq put down.
