the applause

The applause


I had a drink before to a poetry reading and since I was nervous

drank a few whiskeys and spoke dramatically about the plight of the Palestinians

I needed help to get down from the stage since my glasses were at the hotel.

Next day we went to a meeting where the top of

The educated class go, I thought they were idiots they had erudition but no

learning, So I got up and spoke for fifteen minutes.

The silence was colossal, think of a needle falling from the galaxy

and landing on Himalaya I had committed the sin of saying

the global warming was a natural disaster and had nothing to do

with global warming.

The meeting was not reported in the local paper but what do

I know, I do not speak this Roman soldier’ language.
