What A Year

What a year 2020 has been and it ain’t even close to being over. There are seven new holes in our back. Seventeen year olds with assault-rifles—who think they’re doing God’s work—patrol our streets, shooting people. While cops watch. While an invisible, untamable virus continues to stalk the boulevards of our blood.
Not to mention the tanked economy, the crushing unemployment. Not to mention those grifters with gold cards who have barricaded themselves in the people’s house. Will there be an election? Will it be fair and square? Is American Democracy an experience that cannot evolve into the future?
The cracks in our heart widen, deepen. The only thing united about these United States of America is how freaked out we all are.
