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.
