you know something is happening but you don't know what it is [Jul. 4th, 2006|11:23 am]
red white and boom last night. a group gathered on milo's roof to watch the city ejaculate. timed music celebrating the chosen county - the county that god loves the mostest - it created freedom and shares. a child with a semi- automatic in many ways and no one wants to see. all those plans - the best spot - it must be perfect - we must have the best time - everyone thinking there is right way to act to be to think - if we can only get it all right we will be rewarded, right? is that the game? well that was fun - next year we can get an even better spot or that was the best spot - next year should be just the same - return home - back to the boxes to the grass the job the 9-5 the tv the applebee's (it's just like the neighboorhood bar but better becasue it's always there) no fear in america everything can be pretty much the same no new no unknown if you don't want it - homogeny - great.

the sect of society that goes to downtown to plan to watch the spectacle - celebrating / representing whatever your heart decides - does not want to see the sect of society that "doesn't understand why america is so f-ing great. fly down cleveland avenue - can you ignore that unfortunate group of houses and closed shops? the poor people? the drug addicts? the smiling children, the struggle to survive, the failure of the system? - do they think of having to ignore them? Cops keep the unmentionable at bay with their artifical sun beams, their flashing lights, jail - you must only celebrate in our special way not your way - only our fireworks - shots fired - usher the citizens who play along back away from this scene - it does not jive with our image - our projection - what will they think - america wants to go to heaven
