Old Men want Us to go to war

Old Men want Us to go to war , but they don't want to pay or die

I believe the decision to go to war again should involve all of 

America debating the matter. I'm for a war tax in addition to 

bringing back the military draft. Both the war tax and 

conscription will give everyone in America a real stake in any 

decision on going to war, and force the Political and 

economic powers to think twice before they make a 

commitment to send their Children to war

great weather here in Bozemangeles but cold

Filling up in Billings

Rainbow People 

at the Kum & Go

Asking for spare change,

bought them coffee

and gave them $10 bucks

they named their twin sons 

Romulus and Remus 

and the kids slept

in a van filled with books

Beers at the Rocking R

May 7 I'm not him

Having a cold beer At The Rocking R

watching snow flurries on main St.

The girls at the table behind me doing shots

and cursing “That Son of a bitch!”

Demons walk among us, but we all hold them at arms length


April 16, 2015: Reasons to Survive November, Tony Hoagland

Reasons to Survive November
Tony Hoagland

November like a train wreck—
as if a locomotive made of cold
had hurtled out of Canada
and crashed into a million trees,
flaming the leaves, setting the woods on fire.

The sky is a thick, cold gauze—
but there’s a soup special at the Waffle House downtown,
and the Jack Parsons show is up at the museum,
full of luminous red barns.

—Or maybe I’ll visit beautiful Donna,
the kickboxing queen from Santa Fe,
and roll around in her foldout bed.

I know there are some people out there
who think I am supposed to end up
                in a room by myself

with a gun and a bottle full of hate,
a locked door and my slack mouth open
          like a disconnected phone.

But I hate those people back
from the core of my donkey soul
and the hatred makes me strong
and my survival is their failure,

and my happiness would kill them
so I shove joy like a knife
into my own heart over and over

and I force myself toward pleasure,
and I love this November life
where I run like a train
deeper and deeper
into the land of my enemies.

First signs of spring the Mormon Missionary's come konocking

 Mormon missionaries at the front door ,

If I was a lost tribe in the Amazon

I'd take their heads 

and make a stew,

but I just muffle the dog 

and mute the TV 

till they go away.

Crowded places

Even in the most crowded places there is so much 


The boy and his Mother were new to the building. Mom was a

photographic Artist specializing on underground Music and was

not around or sleeping . The boy and the Lonely woman

upstairs became friends. She was afraid of mirrors and he was

afraid to talk. They had rejection in common

There is a bar and a grocery store down the street and a nice

gay couple that Cuts hair ( I know it sounds like stereotyping but

they used to do software and websites , but they really like

cutting hair ) on the next block. Something happens

to the old hippie who lives on the 3rd floor and the City is

having growing pains.

Whats the point of a camouflage Baby Carrier ?

So because I live in Montana I see a lot of Camo clad people walking around.This weekend is one of the biggest (Death to Obama ) gun shows in Bozenageles . Today I saw a whole family in Camo and a Dad/brother ? carrying a Camo baby Carrier. What happens if they  leave the baby carrier in a field ? will they be able to find it in again ?
