Avoid “effete intellectual snobbery” in regard to Trump.
When Spiro Agnew spewed such at Vietnam War protesters,
like the black ink of a squid,
his words obscured the issues for a while.
So, my Trump talk will not be about serving meatloaf to foreign dignitaries
or pouring ketchup on his steak or long flappy ties.
It’s petty. (I love meatloaf too.)
I don’t want legitimate concerns screened by smears of elitism.
Instead of meatloaf, ketchup, and Kelly Anne, keep track of this. It’s important.
I don’t care if he does eat steak all the time or how Kelly Anne sits on a couch; and btw I bet a lot of people think I’M a gauche creature too because I laugh too loud or adore cheap ice cream. FOCUS ON WHAT’S IMPORTANT. (a 420 character-9-liner)
Surprise. Long-eared Owl ear tufts stick up like a rabbit’s
& give them an astonished look;
so when they snatch prey in complete darkness, guided only by acute hearing,
they’ve got a built-in default look of WOW.
I get that look when every day there’s a new revelation
that often is the opposite of the day before’s revelation.
It’s like the President is flying in the dark
but w/ bad hearing & no vision.
Magill and Chris took the man I live with and me to MT Lemmon in Tuscon. We saw a Long-eared Owl. Was it a thrill? You bet!
Learning: The Cabinet hearings taught me what we’re up against;
I will use what I’ve learned to help short-circuit their moves.
They represent the exact opposite of what would be
the best leader for each cabinet spot.
Recently I searched for the Rough-legged Hawk &,
while I didn’t find her,
I learned the lay of the nooks & fields over which she perched, swooped, & hunted.
I’ll know where to look next time.
