"Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he's the only one who's sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."~~

“Political correctness…seeks to establish the domain of a single way of thinking and speaking. Its relativism creates the illusion that it has reached greater heights than the loftiest philosophical achievements of the past. It prescribes itself as the only way to think and speak – if, that is, one wishes to stay in fashion. Being faithful to traditional values and the knowledge that upholds them is labeled intolerance, and relativism becomes the required norm. I think it is vital that we oppose this imposition of a new pseudo-enlightenment, which threatens freedom of thought as well as freedom of religion. In Sweden, a preacher who had presented the Biblical teachings on the question of homosexuality received a prison sentence. This is just one sign of the gains that have been made by relativism as a kind of new ‘denomination’ that places restrictions on religious convictions and seeks to subordinate all religions to the super-dogma of relativism.”~~

Modern man lives in a city that is crumbled, broken down and without walls~~and few today can say “I ruleth my own spirit.”  Can you say that you ruleth your own spirit?

   

The Pope’s strong and courageous words to us, in turn, compel us to conduct our own examination of conscience and in that examination~~to ask ourselves this question~~what am I doing, personally, to help Our Lady crush the head of the Serpent who presents Himself now to us as a progressive, tolerant, harmless and fair-minded snake and not the consummately evil one that Benedictus has today for us so well described?

Our Lady of Guadalupe

Patroness of the new Evangelization

She Who Crushes the Serpent”

by Yves Jacques

Our Blessed Lady understands all her children; she knows what is in their hearts, and how to reach out to each and every one of them. Through her words to Juan Diego, and by the miraculous image that she left imprinted on his tilma, she “speaks” to her children; a message that is still as relevant today as it was to the Indian people almost 500 years ago. For this reason she was declared Patroness of the New Evangelization for the Americas by Pope John Paul II in 1999:

“Now Our Lady accompanies each one of her daughters and sons with her motherly presence. I ask her to ‘visit’ as a ‘pilgrim of faith’ – each and every diocese, parish and family in America, repeating to her children what she said at Cana, ‘Do whatever He tells you’ (Jn 2:5). May she cross this continent bringing it ‘life, sweetness and hope’! May she enliven and protect work of the New Evangelization, so that Christians may live their faith with consistency and fervor, and that those who have abandoned it may return. May she promote the unity of the Church, reuniting as in a new Pentecost those who believe in Jesus Christ and those who need to be renewed by the Spirit.” (Ecclesia in America)

guadalupe-16

Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin, a simple indigenous peasant, saw a vision of the Virgin Mary on December 9, 1531, while he was on the hill of Tepeyac near Mexico City,. He told the local bishop, who asked for some proof. Three days later, the image of Mary appeared miraculously on his cloak when he was showing it to the bishop. (See article in our August/Sept. 2010 issue.) Today the icon is displayed in the Basilica of Guadalupe nearby, one of the most visited Catholic shrines in the world. 

In this image of Our Lady, the word of God is proclaimed in a manner that the Aztec people could relate to. The “symbols” of the image imprinted on the tilma gave a distinct message to them. The young Virgin, dressed as Aztec Royalty, is wearing a black sash at her waist – a sign that she is with child. Her head is bowed and Her eyes are lowered, indicating that She is not a goddess: She is instead, in prayerful adoration before the Incarnate Word made Flesh whom She carries within Her womb. She is standing in front of the sun with 12 of the rays encircling her head, and the moon under her feet ...“A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.” (Revelation 12:1)

By this it could be clearly understood that she was greater than both the sun and the moon which they worshipped. She is held up by an angel, a celestial being, signifying Her Heavenly origin. The constellations of stars imprinted on her robes seem to encircle her womb. There is also a jasmine flower, the only four-petal flower depicted on the tilma, that appears directly over her womb. The jasmine is the Aztec symbol for divinity and the “center of the cosmic order.” This left them to understand that the child, Jesus Christ, was the One True God, “Center of the Universe.” The words of love that she spoke to her humble servant Juan Diego comforted them:

“…I am the ever-virgin Holy Mary, Mother of the True God, for whom we live, of the Creator of all things, Lord of heaven and earth. I wish that a temple be erected here quickly, so I may therein exhibit and give all My love, compassion, help, and protection, because I am your merciful mother, to you and to all the inhabitants on this land and all the rest who love Me, invoke and confide in Me, to listen there to their lamentations, and remedy all their miseries, afflictions and sorrows. And to accomplish what My clemency pretends…”

All these signs prompted them to place themselves under the protection of her maternal mantle. They began coming from far and wide to see this miraculous image and, in a very short period of time, more than nine million souls were baptized. These same people who had up until then been worshipping the serpent god, sacrificing their own people to these gods, were now coming in large numbers to confess their sins and to receive, for the first time, Jesus in the Holy Eucharist.

Our Lady continues to manifest herself through her holy image, and millions of people come in pilgrimage to her shrine in Mexico annually to implore her motherly intercession. Exact replicas of this image have been reproduced and touched to the original tilma. These missionary images now travel throughout the world. They are carried in processions in churches and even through the streets, enabling millions more to experience her maternal love and compassion. There have been thousands of conversions, healings and miracles that have happened. Just from having the image present, or by touching it, many young mothers contemplating an abortion have had a change of heart and have not gone through with their abortion. There have even been abortion clinics that have closed through her intercession.

When the Virgin Mary appeared to Juan Diego in 1531, she had her children of the 20th Century in mind. Some of the signs on the tilma have only been discovered because of the modern technology of today. Recently, it was discovered that there are at least 13 people reflected in the eyes of the Virgin. Among them is a mother carrying her baby on her back. In these times today, where the family is under such attack from so many different dimensions, and babies are being destroyed by millions in their mother’s wombs in abortion mills, this is a very significant find!

“The Catholic Social Teaching; an essential part
of the New Evangelization.” (Pope John Paul II)

John Paul II in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in 1999, with the miraculous picture behind him.

Our Lady of Guadalupe makes no distinctions as to who her children are. She invites us all to come to her, and she offers to each of us her motherly care. She invites us to renounce sin and to turn to her Son Jesus. It is her promise that she will “crush the head of the Serpent”. The new idols of our day: power, money, pleasure, consumerism…degrade and dehumanize the world. The Church does not remain idle. She has identified these demons in the present social, financial, and political spheres, and it is through the Catholic Social Teaching that she proposes a remedy in order to build a civilization of love.

In his encyclical letter Caritas in Veritate, Pope Benedict XVI states that the Catholic Social Teaching “… is an expression of the prophetic task of the Supreme Pontiffs to give apostolic guidance to the Church of Christ and to discern the new demands of evangelization.” This is illustrated by the four pillars: The Dignity of the Human Person, the Common Good, Subsidiarity and Solidarity. These pillars of the Social Doctrine confirm that the human person is created in the image and likeness of God and has a right to life from the moment of conception. Each person is unique, and should be permitted to develop to his full potential in the family of God throughout his entire life, until natural death. We all have God as our Father, with Christ as our brother and Mary as our Mother.

Presently, we are faced with many different ideologies such as: Communism, Socialism, secular humanism, unbridled capitalism, globalization… these contain many errors that the Church must address and which are contrary to the dignity of man.

“The Church does not have a technical solution to offer…She does, however, have a mission of truth to accomplish, in every time and circumstance, for a society that is attuned to man, to his dignity, to his vocation…Fidelity to man requires fidelity to the truth, which alone is the guarantee of freedom (cf. Jn 8:32) and of the possibility of integral human development. For this reason, the Church searches for truth, proclaims it tirelessly, and recognizes it wherever it is manifested. This mission of truth is something that the Church can never renounce. Her social doctrine is a particular dimension of this proclamation: it is a service to the truth which sets us free. Open to the truth, from whichever branch of knowledge it comes, the Church’s social doctrine receives it, assembles into a unity the fragments in which it is often found, and mediates it within the constantly changing life-patterns of the society of peoples and nations.” (Pope Benedict XVI, Caritas in Veritate)

According to the Second Vatican Council, it is the role of the laity to bring Christ to the contemporary world. As laity, we all need to find concrete solutions for the application of the Church’s Social teaching and to apply the Gospel in every aspect of today’s society; economic as well as political. As Pilgrims of St. Michael, we take the Popes’ request seriously to renew the whole of society. Twice a year we have seminars that are attended by numerous bishops, priests and laity from all over the world. They come to learn about the Social Credit proposals as taught by our founder Louis Even and presented in the light of the Church’s Social Teaching. (Our next seminar in Rougemont will be held March 28-April 6; for more information on our seminars, please contact us at http://www.michaeljournal.org)

In closing, let us recognize that this is a spiritual as well as a temporal battle that we are engaged in. Let us ask the Virgin of Guadalupe to enlighten us, uniting us as “one body in Christ.” St. Paul, in his letter to the Romans (12:9-10), entreats us to: “Let love be sincere; hate what is evil, hold on to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; anticipate one another in showing honor.”

Yves Jacques~~

And the man and his wife were both naked, and were not ashamed.

Now the serpent was more crafty than any other wild animal that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God say, ‘You shall not eat from any tree in the garden’?” The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden;  but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, nor shall you touch it, or you shall die.’” But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not die; for God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”  So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made loincloths for themselves. They heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden. But the LORD God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?” He said, “I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.” He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?”  The man said, “The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit from the tree, and I ate.”  Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent tricked me, and I ate.”

CONCEPT OF THE CATHOLIC AND ROYAL ARMY OF AMERICA (CRAA)

Jefferson today would be on the barricades of the tea party patriots~seeking a man who would not compromise and instead kept his character intact~We ask~where is such a hero in our politics today who will not layer compromise upon compromise until he has no character left?

Annex - Fonda, Henry (Best Man, The)_NRFPT_01

Henry Fonda in The Best Man, released in 1964

Fonda’s hero in the film is the man who refuses to blackmail his opponent because “one by one, these compromises, these small corruptions, destroy “character””

~~

We ask~~where is such a hero in our politics today who will not layer compromise upon compromise until he has no character left?

~~

Dear Bernie~~

There is no question that it is troubling to many here that Tea Party and other groups of a generically conservative populist tincture are very much disparaged by the Democrats~~understandably because they fear them so and know they will never have their support–but likewise by the Republicans~~who consider them to be ignorant rubes, scolds and nags.
 
This is troubling because nobody–except for a few here–would have ever heard Jake Boehner’s name had it not been for the Tea Party. I am personally very troubled by this dynamic here today at Washington, as it smacks of Royalism and its attendant notion that certain elite groups have taken it upon themselves to decide who the Americans ought to vote for. 
 
Evidence how the polling men are already asking not “whom do you favor for President in 2016″ and let you answer but rather~~ “OK, which of the these do you favor in 2016?”  It never appears to dawn on the polling men that the only thing the Americans would likely decide about all the choices given, if they even knew anything much about most of these putative candidates, is that the Americans would likely say that they can all go hang themselves.
 
That said, unless somebody who knows what’s what and can be forceful in the eye of the storm presents himself, the horses being loaded into starter’s gate by the press and the polling men, are likely to make up the field in 2016~~from which gate will very almost certainly spring the winner.
The only qualification for getting in starter’s gate seems to be a preening presentation and comparison of very dull, yet also, gaudy, resumes of what the horses going in the gate have accomplished here at Washington~~notwithstanding that the Americans hate the Washington class.
 
All this is odd on a personal level as I met Mrs. Palin about 2 weeks before McCain trotted her out to meet the Americans and I remember thinking~~she has entirely too fetching a shape to her to waste on anything as dreary as politics.  I remember being alarmed at the fury with which the combined forces of Washington’s power groups became so instantly frantic to destroy her reputation~~which they certainly succeeded in doing in spades.
 
What was generally said to me was “she’s so stupid,” a charge that at Washington ought to be used with great caution as the political men here and those in the press services are no big bargain in the brains department. I remember thinking that they must be afraid of her as otherwise they would simply have ignored her.
 
One of the fellows in this group pointed finger at me and said “Begg–if that girl gets in, you are personally responsible.”  I think that says a lot in that many here at Washington really do think that we make the rules~~which is, Royalism.  I told the fellow that “it is none of your business, or mine, who the Americans want to elect and if this girl gets in it will because the people wanted her.”
 
This maybe the crux of the trouble here~~a system of kingmakers, king breakers and little tin kings themselves.  This is not a pretty thought given the backgrounds of so many of the men here who prance around as though they were heir to the throne of England when in fact they arrived here many, many years ago from some nondescript part of America having failed at insurance selling or some such.
 
Harder yet to fathom the reporters~~members of a class that used to be exclusively filled with men with holes in their shoes and cheap pint of liquor in their back pockets.  All of a sudden, these groups are Royalty.
 
That aside, the Americans are a very disparate people–it would be hard to think who, if anyone, speaks for any appreciable number of them.  The better men from the better families have, particularly so after Romney, abandoned politics altogether~~and understandably so. Who, having anything in the way of social background, save perhaps the Bush family~~a mixed blessing~~would stand for office?
 
I do not pretend, as others here do that I know the American people in my bone marrow, but it seems to me that the men of Washington have, in the last 20 or so years, become, evermore ostentatiously, self-ordained experts on what the Americans want and need from their government~~and likewise obsessed with stealing money~~personally.  
 
I do not think it overstatement to say that we have arrived in a place not unlike the America Jefferson looked out at in disquietude and remarked, particularly having seen a fair amount of Europe~~ “the people are pressed down by an aristocratic class and have no advantage except poverty and perpetual war.”
Sounds like home to me.
 
This observation, collectively agreed by the framers, led to revolution~~which is why I sence that another such revolution is fast coming here~~I very much don’t want that, as revolutions are invariably messy affairs, but I can’t see a way out~~save our finding a leader who will slice off some crowned heads around here.
 
Jefferson would, most assuredly, have been a Tea Party rabble-rouser because he so detested entrenched, codified, Royalist power. Hence the title of this now labyrinthine essay in which we find ourselves called–”what would they make of us–our founders–if they saw how the government treats the American people today?”
 
A rather odd duck, and a terrible philosopher, summed up the attitude of official Washington as it is today constituted~comme ca~~
 
 
My point to you remains–this revolution can be run through one of the major Parties if we can somehow find the right men.
 
I can’t think the founders would be happy with us today.  No, not at all.
 
Yours, 
 
John~~
~~~~~
Dear Ramin and friends~~

 
Ramin–I agree your assessment of the Bill just past–it was a remarkable gaucherie for sure– but I lament your despondent response to it.
 
These guys can’t win all the time, Ramin.
 
Outside of this city~everybody hates them~the trouble is that the opposition to this city is fragmented and uninformed as to how to take power~~too many boutique Parties~too much internecine warfare~~not enough discipline–too many big egos, too many guys with their little plans to save the nation they have been carrying around in a briefcase for decades–politics is both very hard and very easy at one and the same time–
 
There is a revolution brewing–both here and in West Europe–against the same enemy–consolidated, globalized power at Washington and Brussels~~what is needed is a plan and a galvanizing leader to defeat that enemy.
 
The history of man is a continuing casting off of autocratic power–it’s continual–you get an ossified, self-congratulatory, inbred aristocracy that pushes the people far enough and them the bomb goes off.  And it will go off–both here and at Brussels very, very soon.  The conceit that you can control and abuse the great mass of people indefinitely without any consequence belies all history-from the dawn of man–autocratic governments fall–they always–fall–
 
So our task, amigos–is–what to do with that certain knowledge that the autocratic regime at Washington will fall–and soon?
 
We need to have a think about this as~~  when it falls–somebody will take over–I’d prefer it be an well=modulated, educated, thoughtful, affable man rather than a Hitler–but if the better men throw in the towel–we will get a Hitler.  I have been writing for 2 years to prevent that happening.
 
Thinking men have the capacity to plan to replace the old regime with a good, fresh start here at Washington.  Let’s be of good cheer and upbeat and positive.  What really is disconcerting to me is that so many good Americans have simply thrown in the towel–that’s not the American way–or for that matter the English, German or French way–we are people who are proud of our national identity–globalism in all it’s manifestations is the enemy of all civilized people–so let’s buck up and take over this little cow town and make it do what we want.
 
How so?  Here so-
 
Politics is hard and unbelieving boring work–to run and win a national campaign–but it’s easy when the great mass of people are completely disaffected with Washington–and they are–but you must have people who know the boring mechanics of getting a nomination who are just as disaffected as you and the others here~~I know the mechanics likely better than anyone here–Steve knows a lot as well–he’s been in combat in the States–I was a cog in the machine for many years–I know all the technical stuff that needs doing–which is one of the reasons why I so strongly advocate for staying within the structure of one of the major parties–free–and willing–labour on the ground from people who know best how to win Ohio-10 or MI-8 or PA–13–nobody can know all of this by himself—-and that is why the Party structure is so valuable–so the key is to get the nomination of one of the Parties and let the worker bees in the States and Districts do the drudge work–they’ll be happy to help–as soon as you get the nomination they go to work for you–so don’t cast off that amenity–it’s volunteer labour in the trenches– on the ground coming from people who know the terrain–it’s priceless–and at the same time–it’s free.
 
But we have to give the people something specific–a comparatively simple program–easy to understand–endlessly repeated to them by a guy who is affable–not shrill–not the sky is falling in–just an affable guy who wants to change Washington and turn it on its head—-this idea has had mass appeal going back to Wallace in 72 and Perot in 92–I can’t even imagine how much more viscerally the Americans hate Washington today than they did in 72 or 92.
 
I personally feel that the need to DE-globalize the finance sector to bring good jobs back home to America and rejuvenate the industrial base– trumps all other issues–even the debt–as–without good jobs–America really is over–let’s find a guy to sell our product–politicians are salesmen–I simply wish I were a younger man with younger arteries as I know far more than I ever wanted to know about the mechanics of the election process–consider how massive the number of Americans who are disaffected with Washington–if people could stick to a very focused objective and find a leader– a massive victory could be attained by taking over either one of the established Parties–they are both empty shells that serve no one save themselves and their courtiers–but they think the bacchanal will go on forever and it won’t–it simply can’t–
 
But the autocrats can’t dodge away from this–if I get more votes than you–I win–so let’s at least give it a go, what–I mean we all have kids and we are all distressed so to me having a go at taking over one of these Parties is very worth the effort as~we’ve nothing to lose~~in fact–it’s an obligation for good men to get involved.
 
First off–we need to be optimistic–Jack Kennedy and Reagan were the  best Presidents of our lifetimes and they shared that trait–sunny optimism–it counts for a lot–it’s intangible–but it attracts voters like a moth to a lantern.  Be optimistic–my little plan–my core message appears below–it addresses the most important hot button issues both here and West Europe–the hatred of central authority and globalization.
 
Lisa remarked to me not long ago that I could win in a walk in EITHER Party simply by stressing this platform–particularly among the young who see the locomotion of destruction coming for them–if you worry about your kids–believe me –they are, or soon will be far more worried than you are, Ramin–all other issues would resolve themselves—-deficits, even debt, immigration, social inequities–all would be solved if we advocated for this platform alone~~
 
Moreover–we could run this solely on social media–no interviews with the established press services–just on social sites–word of mouth–we could run a front porch campaign–once we win a few primaries the conventional press will have to pick us up as we are an existential threat to Washington–but we don’t need them and will simply ignore them–and let them sit in their glass boxes talking to themselves and about us–while we proceed to win
 
All the dashing about in traditional modern campaigns has nothing to do with meeting the people or pressing the flesh–it has to do with fund-raising exercises–while I think that we will get mass funding when people start to hear about us–we will not need as much as the major parties candidates because we can run this campaign out of our living rooms–elections ultimately turn not on money or flash Washington resumes–but rather on ideas–good ideas–let’s get some good ideas out in front of the Americans commencing 2014 and take a shot and see if we can save this country–I know it can be done–people want a revolution against Washington–let’s stop thinking about the groups aligned against us and adopt a positive and optimistic program of our own to give the people their revolution–let’s be creative, and optimistic–the race begins January 2014–it ends November 2016–with God’s help and our collective effort and thought–we can take over this city and make it work for the people~~boundless optimism is endemic to the Americans–let’s concentrate on putting boundless optimism to work to do this first and foremost~~

The rich man ought not be taxed at all~~he ought be compelled to train and employ the poor man~~directly~~cutting Washington out altogether as the middleman~~

~~The principal need in America today is~~financial and industrial De-Globalization~~to facilitate the promotion of the possibility for the average man to get and keep a good job with good benefits paid by the employer~~as was done not very long ago.~~

Greed may now be naughty yet greed remains America~

“In a real dark night of the soul, it is always three o’clock in the morning, day after day.”

– F. Scott Fitzgerald
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Scott Fitzgerald was a reasonably talented writer who managed being the quintessential American novelist and his work, The Great Gatsby, is the quintessential American novel. There is little not in the book that one need know of the Americans.

 

We ask~~why then, is Gatsby so critically panned~~times now seven times~~ by the librarian class? Librarians mutter that there “is nothing to this book~~beyond money and ostentatious display!”

 

But girls, girls~~that is what America is~~money, quickly, and sloppily acquired, and its ostentatious display~~that is America.

 

Despite what schoolmarmish ones might tell you~~the story of Gatsby is the story of the Americans~~a people insatiably thirsty for more money than they can count and an opulence that Kings would envy.

 

Willy Maugham, a writer more adroit than myself or even our thirsty Scotty, said of the Americans~~

~~

“The Americans are so terribly successful principally because they know who they are~~something most people do not know~~the Americans are a people feverishly devoted to the twin lusts of~~~ big business and fornication~~and very, very little else.”~~

~~~~

fitzgerald1

“At any rate, let us love for a while, for a year or so, you and me. That’s a form of divine drunkenness that we can all try. There are only diamonds in the whole world, diamonds and perhaps the shabby gift of disillusion.~~

~~

F. Scott Fitzgerald, from “A Diamond as Big as the Ritz”.

 F._Scott_Fitzgerald,_1921

“Having once found the intensity of art, nothing else that can happen in life can ever again seem as important as the creative process.”

– F. Scott Fitzgerald~~

F. Scott Fitzgerald home at 6 Gateway Drive in Great Neck Estates, the basis of Nick's house in The Great Gatsby

Scott Fitzgerald lived with his wife Zelda Fitzgerald at 6 Gateway Drive in Great Neck Estates, in King’s Point on Long Island, New York, from 1922-1924s, and based West Egg in the book, The Great Gatsby, on Great Neck/King’s Point, and the neighbouring East Egg was modelled on the more affluent Sands Point

The couple moved there in 1922 after the birth of their daughter “Scottie” and the home became the inspiration for Nick Carraway’s West Egg house in the novel. Read more about the development of the story here.

The pessimism that enveloped the world after the Great War~a conflict that ended civilized society~seems to hang as a cloud over our, now hopelessly fated, race~and I turn again to read Tom Eliot as we today all feel very much like old men~

 GerontionGerontion by T.S. Eliot

t s eliot
HERE I am, an old man in a dry month,
Being read to by a boy, waiting for rain.
I was neither at the hot gates
Nor fought in the warm rain
Nor knee deep in the salt marsh, heaving a cutlass,         5
Bitten by flies, fought.
My house is a decayed house,
And the jew squats on the window sill, the owner,
Spawned in some estaminet of Antwerp,
Blistered in Brussels, patched and peeled in London.         10
The goat coughs at night in the field overhead;
Rocks, moss, stonecrop, iron, merds.
The woman keeps the kitchen, makes tea,
Sneezes at evening, poking the peevish gutter.
                    I an old man,         15
A dull head among windy spaces.
Signs are taken for wonders. “We would see a sign”:
The word within a word, unable to speak a word,
Swaddled with darkness. In the juvescence of the year
Came Christ the tiger         20
In depraved May, dogwood and chestnut, flowering judas,
To be eaten, to be divided, to be drunk
Among whispers; by Mr. Silvero
With caressing hands, at Limoges
Who walked all night in the next room;         25
By Hakagawa, bowing among the Titians;
By Madame de Tornquist, in the dark room
Shifting the candles; Fraulein von Kulp
Who turned in the hall, one hand on the door. Vacant shuttles
Weave the wind. I have no ghosts,         30
An old man in a draughty house
Under a windy knob.
After such knowledge, what forgiveness? Think now
History has many cunning passages, contrived corridors
And issues, deceives with whispering ambitions,         35
Guides us by vanities. Think now
She gives when our attention is distracted
And what she gives, gives with such supple confusions
That the giving famishes the craving. Gives too late
What’s not believed in, or if still believed,         40
In memory only, reconsidered passion. Gives too soon
Into weak hands, what’s thought can be dispensed with
Till the refusal propagates a fear. Think
Neither fear nor courage saves us. Unnatural vices
Are fathered by our heroism. Virtues         45
Are forced upon us by our impudent crimes.
These tears are shaken from the wrath-bearing tree.
The tiger springs in the new year. Us he devours. Think at last
We have not reached conclusion, when I
Stiffen in a rented house. Think at last         50
I have not made this show purposelessly
And it is not by any concitation
Of the backward devils
I would meet you upon this honestly.
I that was near your heart was removed therefrom         55
To lose beauty in terror, terror in inquisition.
I have lost my passion: why should I need to keep it
Since what is kept must be adulterated?
I have lost my sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch:
How should I use it for your closer contact?         60
These with a thousand small deliberations
Protract the profit of their chilled delirium,
Excite the membrane, when the sense has cooled,
With pungent sauces, multiply variety
In a wilderness of mirrors. What will the spider do,         65
Suspend its operations, will the weevil
Delay? De Bailhache, Fresca, Mrs. Cammel, whirled
Beyond the circuit of the shuddering Bear
In fractured atoms. Gull against the wind, in the windy straits
Of Belle Isle, or running on the Horn,         70
White feathers in the snow, the Gulf claims,
And an old man driven by the Trades
To a a sleepy corner.
                    Tenants of the house,
Thoughts of a dry brain in a dry season.         75
