"Yet for all of us there were moments when the game we were all agreeing to play simply could not stand up to events: we would be gripped by feelings of unreality, like nausea. Perhaps this feeling that the ground was dissolving under our feet, was the real enemy..." --Doris Lessing, The Memoirs of a Survivor (1975)


in the Em'rald City
the Three Tokays

took my Chevy to the levee
but the levee had popped

in the City of Tomorrow
serendipity Serengeti
spaghetti spadhippity

in the City of Yes & No
the air is rent
black blood pours down off the talons

"In our country the only material for a Statue of Liberty is Russian poetry." --Yevgeny Yevtushenko, intro to Twentieth Century Russian Poetry (1993)
