I need to come out of retirement to make sure you see this
About bloody time...
And watch this if you haven't already
"Tony Blair will be served notice to quit Downing Street at a meeting of the Cabinet next week" and he was called 'deluded' and 'self indulgent'...He might be competing with Bush on who can get called enough names by British politicians..
Iraq and numbers...how much can we feel for numbers? Nothing that makes us ready to say 'enough', apparently...
This country of ours is hot and dusty and full of so much piled up wrong that it's almost impossible to remember what is right anymore...I watch its stifled children try to lift the weight of everything in their way here, and they get tired and lonely and they go into hiding behind bank logos and business cards and paths set up by default...and they forget so many things, because it hurts like hell to battle and beg for crumbs when your head has already known magic....every move takes on its Sisyphean hue and how heavy it all becomes...especially waking up and especially falling asleep....but I love this country, I love it like a dream that keeps breaking everytime you touch it...like a painful fever that makes you lucid and strange..and now it's late at night and I prattle on like this just because I don't know how you can have hate and love so very close that they disappear into each other...but here they are, twinned and teasing...waiting, as ever, for us to do something about it all.
