Comments on the Election

Here are some thoughts I wrote up after the recent election. Many have found this archetypal perspective helpful.

And here is an antidote to bitterness and fear.

The Perfume/Of Flowers!... 

The perfume

of flowers! A haw

drops such odour 

it stops me

in the wall 

of its fall. Love

arrests

Lime-trees 

saturate

the night. We walk 

in it

On a path jonquils 

fill

the air. Love

is a scent
