Escape from Chicago

It’s been awhile since I’ve writ­ten any­thing on a per­son­al lev­el, this feels strange to me now. Per­haps a tinge self indul­gent, no ? But every writer is guilty of it. It does­n’t always have to be about some­thing entire­ly pro­found and out there. Indeed most peo­ple opt in for sim­plic­i­ty, and opt out in com­plex­i­ty believe it or not. As for myself, I’m talk­ing about my escape from the city I grew up in. It in itself a wor­thy dream.

Don’t get me wrong, there were excel­lent times had in the windy city. My child­hood and the for­ma­tive won­der years til young adult ver­sion of myself. Maybe there’s a book in me some­where, if so how would that even look ? I’m high­ly secre­tive and a bit of a super spy in case you had­n’t known this. How could you ?

In it’s declin­ing years, Chica­go became a tox­ic, hos­tile place. Ulti­mate­ly dom­i­nat­ed by vio­lence, cor­rup­tion, foul weath­er, and high­ly offen­sive tax­a­tion. I don’t need to list the rea­sons, they’re ample obvi­ous. What hap­pens to a place when the demo­c­ra­t­ic mafia infects and cor­rupts the soul of a city. Once enjoyed then destroyed, they blame all kinds of things for their abysmal incom­pe­ten­cies. The city could be burn­ing and in total anar­chy and the causers of it would still be in denial. That’s patho­log­i­cal right there and indica­tive of many such bro­ken left­ist waste­lands now (Cal­i­for­nia, Illi­nois, New York).

Despite the sad state it was left in, I felt a strange delir­i­um come over before/​during/​after hav­ing left it. And now, it was­n’t the bot­tle of deli­cious delir­i­um beerI had the night pri­or to my immi­nent depar­ture. Detach­ment always took its dear sweet time, there’s that. It did­n’t real­ly help that Covid19 was wait­ing for me just 5.5 months lat­er. 2020 com­plete­ly oblit­er­at­ed the enthu­si­as­tic rar­efied joy one gets relo­cat­ing to an entire­ly new state far removed. I don’t get to do the fan­ci­ful chron­i­cling of my tran­si­tion peri­od and detail­ing all the won­der­ful jux­ta­po­si­tions from city to coun­try. Can you empathize ? You’ve just moved, trans­plant­ed and a glob­al pan­dem­ic hits. Sud­den­ly you’re in a dis­as­ter movie when you want to explore and become inte­grat­ed. Add to this an entire­ly cor­rupt coup d’é­tat to steal the pres­i­den­cy and there you have it. A very pow­er­ful­ly messed up thing. Ene­mies of Amer­i­ca seized on the polit­i­cal cap­i­tal of the Chi­nese designed bio-weapon. What did our coun­try do ? Used it to steal the high­est office of the land and com­mit will­ful trea­son. We got to see the extent of absolute cor­rup­tion in Amer­i­ca. From the media, to the FBI and many oth­er play­ers. All exposed for who they were (and weren’t): liars, trai­tors, and incom­pe­tent hacks. They might of won a major vic­to­ry, but those things have a price. It won’t take long to pay that price either. If they went after Hol­ly­wood, there are bored reporters out there who are look­ing for a story.

seems poets and artists require IG legit­i­ma­cy and anti-soc media for val­i­da­tion rather than true, hard won tal­ent and work eth­ic. guess it’s more about look­ing the part than real­i­ty based. tal­ent as an illu­sion rather than whats real­ly real.
