Malayalam Translation

I’m excited to share that my poem “Here and Now (and After)” has been translated into Malayalam and published in the new issue of Thorcha Magazine released out of India. Huge thank you to Priya Unnikrishnan for her translation, and to Bijoy Chandran for including my work in his venue.

Malayalam is now the 11th language that selections of my poetry have been translated into.

Solution-Oriented

I have a bright idea. Open society. End the lockdowns. Free the people to live their lives as they see fit at their own preferred risk. Put the actual authoritarian criminals in cages.

Better yet, toss them in a zoo. For public viewing where we can visit during field trips to study them as a reminder of what happens to petty tyrants whose overreach for power becomes too lustful and wicked.

I could probably think of a few money launderers, human traffickers, mad scientists, rogue intelligence agents, and corrupted politicians who would fit in perfectly in such a habitat. I’m sure they’d all get along swimmingly together.

Grant free admission to every citizen who comes to point, stare, mock, and laugh at the disgraced gang of psychopaths as they adjust to their new environment.

A masquerade on full display.
