There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' Isaac Asimov

Inimicus Dei Constituitur

Poetry

Descend Summer King, Lord of Day
Midsummer is past
And the veil beckons.
Ascend Winter King, Lord of Night
Midwinter draws nigh
Take up thy spear.

I have had a
recurring dream:
you are asleep
safe in my arms,
simply brothers
and nothing else.
To hell with the
swordsman's advice;
to the wall for you
is where I'd go
and I want you
to know.

Do you recall the day
your voice brought me in?
 
        I do
 
The way you asked
     The way you stood.
So tall, yet....
 
Could I do it over I would;
only one thing to change -
the embrace wouldn't wait.
 
 
 
for my "little brother".  Probably the last guy who's going to wear that appellation.
Love ya, D.

Kindle a flame
on this longest night
not to hold back
the dark and the cold
but to rejoice
in the rebirth
of the infant sun.
Today the King is born, again.
Long live the King.
Sol Invictus

half awake; of you: dreaming --
in your eyes I see that look
call out to me without words;
vision fades, in dreams I see you best.
