"now here we go again
same idea, different song
where have all the antifascists gone?"
this is from enough is enough by Chumbawamba, a song i've been listening to quite a lot since returning to sweden. it just might have something to do with the faces that are in power since last year.

& i just have to point you to a poem on Mark Young's blog. his most recent book, the postman poems, is about what the postman brings him. it's a delight (& i have some kind of review almost done). i think he'll still send you a copy of the pdf if you email him & ask for it
