The Left Column

Politics for Poets

politics of the here and now

We have taken away the stream-of-consciousness fictional political commentary for today. How about some poetry, unrelated to politics?


there were pumpkins
past season
and the carvings
had rotted
to be even more grotesque
than intended
and a bitter sudden chill, sqawlly snow,
frozen ketchup on the picnic table where people eat lunch



Was I sad to leave myself stuck inside my yesterdays?
Inside of mind we can sometimes let the winds howl.
Windy Howls
deep within your mind
where there is no place to stay, and only
moving forward, 
onward
to the safe place.

You're there in a moment.
When the calm comes, it brings you rest
and all the troubling vapors
dissipate within the great light
darkness no more.

The Rhodium Age

We live in The Rhodium Age, a time when at some point we will be able to literally turn Carbon into Gold, or to write it as a chemical equation:

C + ? = Au

I leave it to the Chemical menshches to fill in the details of the question mark that I write as part of my mock equation. But you get the idea.


The management here
hopes that the readers
decide to be kind.

showering down like snow

if you don't have proper fonts installed you won't see what this picture shows: the output of the echo command with unicode symbols as input. If you are blind basically the unicode are symbols that you could feel as shapes. If you have a 'font box', which would be like that divice with all the pins in it that you can place your hand inside, and the shape of your hand will appear on the surface. If such a thing locked, it would then let a blind person feel it and they would feel the shape. such a device that does that for font shapes would greatly aid the blind. It would be a 'kind of' high resolution new-braille. Call it a 'sean-box' font reader.

When you're alone on the train
you aren't really alone
there are all kinds of other people
traveling on that same line,
going in a similar direction,
very many destinations

Destination train
moving through a forest
in a driving rain
She said he was insane
for getting on that train.

Destination 2 aim
2 AM in a driving rain
she knows he'll come back again

When you're alone
on a bus
you aren't really alone
the driver is there
all the people you can see 
out on the streets,
down the allyways
besides the buildings
sidewalks glisten
the reflection of starlight
the must be people there too,
space aliens of the long ago
so you're never really alone. 
You're never really alone.

Destination railway station
in the far away
through the fogs of time
the forests of lost contemplation
where the tallest trees of the forest
will swap their spots, dance around,
a square dance
of sequoias
so in the light of day
they're all OK
and back to where they were before
or who can say?

Destination 2 AM

far away train station

Here is today's pretty poem:


  

  Sunset Blue
  He's starting to cry
  Everyone at the club 
  has to know why
  He's feeling alone
  though he plays for the crowd
  and he plays so sweet
  even when loud.
  Sunset comes
  and it's starting to snow
  When the set is over
  where will he go?
   
   well we know that he sleds down the frozen gorge 
   on his guitar case . . .

you can see the crowd
as the marching band

take the crowd a'dancing
off toward the stars.

Oh you big mouthed moon
why do you rave
about the government
while you're in your tie
you are that kind of guy
who has nothing really ready to say
but rest assured,
and he can't be cured
you'll say it any way.

Oh you big mouthed moon
  big mouthed moon
but the women swoon
becaue youre always the most kind
and the worst you do
if anyone's judging you
is to always speak your mind
so in the end you might be wrong

She defriended me
 when I'd never friended her
      no I never freinded her
           I never friended her.
 
 She banned me
       she blocked me
      when I didn't even have a phone
         when I didn't even have a phone

 Just the idea of me
       that I might even exist
           kept me off of the list
                of anyone who is missed.
  As if I ever cared about it at all.



Tyranny doesn't like competition.

more political fictions

He's going on with his 'this this this, all this this this' bit of stock outrage. And no one can calm him down. Gotta get things done. Got work to do. But he exhausts himself with useless outrage.

And those thing, even if they were true, they are better kept on the down low. Most people are nice. Most organizations can never become so demented and damaged and draining away D' word daisy dazes and dazzling displays of dangerous dan-dasteerdlies, as if he weren't but just the sweetest of lambkin lambs.

He's got to calm down. Maybe some travel would help him. Or go to sleep for a while, stop himself from continuing with his controversial concepts. It's better to un-post. And then they won't find it. He's not back pedaling. Maybe he could if it weren't just a story. Words aren't nooses, and he isn't inclined to use them like that. Someone who is truly eevviill is just a fiction, even your worst imagined human villain is not real. No one is as vile in the ways that you could imagine as a worst case. And these imaginings, maybe we use them as a stock bit that we do when we are lonely drunk in the crowd and trying to say things that mean something, that people would be amused by. But are they laughing at you or with you? and you don't want to know.

But even that is paranoia. And we are all having to be who we are and it's our fault when we, ourselves, devolve into a jerk persona, idiosyncratic ravings about aristocratic secrecy that isn't even real, and going on with the delusions that you catalog as being farmed into the message of putrid mendacious postings of, perhaps, just bot-process. And thus, no one real is even thinking that way until people read this trivvel and they think that maybe it's somehow correct. When it's all just made up. And everyone is suppose to know that. But they don't. And so some fools decide that the rethoric against the . . . whoever . . . needs to be escalated to a point of inserrection which they can't win. Because they've got it all wrong. They aren't even seeing the person as a person. They've crafted these bullies to slaughter in their delusional worlds, and they've empowered themselves with hatreds that might have been just manufactured. If people have real hatred then you can't talk them off their self-created ledge and stop them unless you can some how mitigate that, and make it good for the person, who suffered real harm, and that they would be better later, and not hurting anymore because of the brutalities of which they were suffering, and they were inflicted upon them by . . . and maybe the story doesn't tell you the rest. You are supposed to just take it all at face value. When someone who has really suffered from being brutalized, they can be helped to overcome their distraught nature because it was a human that did this to them, and humans can remind them that not all of us are brutes.

But when the slights and afflictions are not real, and people are not really sufferers, and they don't have anything bad, really, that's happened to them by a person or pepole in a conscious way, it's nothing more than stuff that they hear about, or see on the news, or they think someone that they know is doing it, or being harmed. If its someone local, you can't say what they might have seen, or know about. In the case of those who live in a virtual drug-haven warzone, like some parts have become during some phases of the daily routine, no where is a hellhole always. And people, even in hell holes, are still human. And so we must lay back and rest on the trust that other people can not really be demons, and that they want to do the right thing, even if it were for an enemy, and if it were someone in distress, that they human thing to do is to help.

so if you find yourself somewhere and you're feeling stress from the sense of it being a 'bad area', you had best proceed to a calmness, and accept that we do live in a dangerous world if we harbor fear of danger then we will not be happy when something occurs, even if it doesn't happen to us. But in a war zone, a real bad place, there is an acceptance and a 'just get it done' behavior of survival, and hiding, and being ok when everything else is crazy. But we aren't in that place. We don't have that here, really. Its something that power mad asshole would crave to have so that they can impose a will to have those with duty to put on a demonstration of their martialistic behaviors. Populations don't cotton to unrest, and we don't have a tradition of that here. It must upset them that the tricks, those old-world tricks, can't work in a nation where people are locked and loaded and ready to jump up at a minutes notice. Tyranny doesn't like competition.

Would that it were . . . but it isn't
f

Would that it were that all hate is fiction, alas, people's actions show otherwise.

How can it be Saturday again
    working so hard all week long
 thinking of you
       and you are gone?

Without telling me anything
     up before the wind
 I realize I was crazy
    but everybody 
    thinks they've sinned
    when they reflect on regret
    forgive themselves.

 All that I knew
    were gone fly away.
 Now that it is over
     we have nothing to say.

 If Winter
      were less sudden
 would we care more
        when it is frigid
           all at once?

  The chill came down.
     It became a glacier.
         it kind of looks pretty now
  way off in the distance.
  
  People know where to not build a home:
          way up on a mountain mile thick ice dome.

those two,
over a 1500 dollar chair
over two 1500 dollar chairs
that someone had brought in
as a donation.

Inappropriate friendship
never lasts.


But then it's her.
She's pulled into the same rest area
It's midnight and an approaching storm.
Her husbands
gone down
into the reeds
of the river 
snaking through the low lands
in the bright light
of the intermitent moon
with ghosts of ancient Portuguese
who had settled this place.

You see her
as you are driving by
calling out
"where are you? Where are you, oh husband oh mine . . . "

Ya, but you couldn't really hear it
because you don't stop there anymore
especially at midnight
and the approaching storm.

Soon to be 
safe at home
and warm

Soon to be safe at home and cool?
Cool? Like 'fonzi' cool, because that isn't really cool
That's only mock cool. It was cool mock cool
and Henry Winkler was always cool,
But Fonzi wasn't real cool,
Not like Jimmy at the beach cool
hot summer day,
paying for people
who can't pay their way
anonymous cool
becuase the coolest of the cool
are the fool for following the rule
Wait, not the fool, not needing to follow that rule,
anonymously
and with a penchant for extreame kindness.




Afterwards
when everyone had already gone home
and the day had driven the sun down, like spiking a football
into those brillient sundog sundown sunset dusk daze-over, a fog
that fog lifts
as the brillient moon, across the sky, arrises 


I can call out for you
but you're never coming home
never coming home
never coming home

I can cook diner for you
but your
never coming home
never coming home
again.

That squiral
that lives in the spruce
drops down the cones
that it has devored
showers down on your truck
the beds filled with tailings
of the giant feast
above in that tree.

At night
I call out to you
but you're never coming home
never coming home
never coming home
again

Eventually your brother
has the truck taken away
truck taken away
your hat still in the window.

At night
I call out to you
you used to answer
across the apartment

At night 
I call out to you
you used to smile at me
in the middle of the night

That lighthouse
your giant beacon
in the middle of the night
accross the foggy bridge of years.

And maybe someday
going home to you
when the fog gets blown away
across the stormed cross deep and blue
And pipers piping
people weeping
never ceasing
storming brew

That light house
shines forever
your giant beacon
I can see it from my home

When the rain was coming down
and the storm was getting worse
and he felt such dispair
that he agreed to a curse

He 
made a deal
with the spirits of the forest
but the spirits of the forest
wouldn't ever let him go

Now
he's all OK
he understands
what he'd given away
and with all thing like that
when you stop and change your mind
and you ask for forgiveness
and remain being kind,
and you stop with your fear
and things you don't really hear
that seem speaking in your mind
things that are actually unkind.

So
if you make a deal with the Spirits
of the forest
remember spirits of the forest
exist only in your mind.

So deal with yourself
and set your self free
you ought not be a slave
to who you used to be
a promise to your self
that you made in your mind
might be the worst thing now
and mostly wickedly unkind.

So don't
make deals with the devils
that you conjour in your evenings
tripping in the swamp.

My bad tenent 
won't go away
says he's a Hippy
and he can't pay

I was crazy to have him
 moving in
specially when he convessed
he's not starting again

He can't lose
he can only win.

Poem Shards

from Unipoems
 She asked 
 " If you get across
  can you take this
       to the King of Nowhere
 and tell him,
   plead to him
  to think of her
  and the way that she needs him?
       but he won't come home
     so she goes out looking for him
 went down to The Flatiron Building
         asking anyone
    wrote a card
        mailed it home.

  I imagine her
       collapsed on a bench
        people shuffle through
     she feels the lonely loss
          why won't he come home?
     I imagine her.
 She wrote it like that
      on her card.

  But it was all for sympathy,
       just an expression of her drama
 and she felt lost because of it
       and didn't know how to proceed
         the tricks didn't work with him
      he'd gotten willful,
     run off with a different girl
   who doesn't go to church.

     Hear the steam whistle
  of an approaching ferry turning to make a smooth connect.
      Moving back
 from the railing and the ropes
       she notes the impatience of the people at the dock
     and how the other women really like to talk.
  the crowd rushes forward
  have your nickel ready
        she gets swept along
     now she is way out there
       in the ferry
 out past the jetty.

who da thought?

thought is sequential the end of it is never flood on, river of wise neglect let the bough break let the wind blow removed the baby from that cradle long ago and took him somewhere safe. Thought is over rated when it's thought for being mean to be mean being mean what you mean when you are mean when you 'mean what you say'. Memory is overrated there is joy in the person even when they don't know who you are anymore they still love you they usually don't forget that they love you usually. It was cold that day he'd driven all the way there and plodded through the snow to face the sorrow of his loved-one who didn't remember him but thought him to be someone else as thwarted. Memory is overrated when it's hard hurt of past tragedy as if it happened yesterday from the long ago. Bill Perilli, writer of all of the things on this blog. ๐ŸŒœ๐ŸŒœ๐ŸŒœ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ›๐ŸŒ›๐ŸŒ›

Coders Edge

Nightmare on Upgrade Street

Upgrade to FC24

Fedora 24

Well, I don't worry. Because the file-systems are solid. And I know what I am doing. So, when I got a notice that the FC24 was bold and ready (bold and ready), I said 'what else am I going to do today? Let's give it a shot.'

I'm not quoting myself.

In any case now, with DNF, the commands are terse and easy. DNF is now locked and loaded and ready to go with the upgrade. And it uses the RPM back end. Slow, slow, slow. But I have a lot of fonts.

In any case, a lot of fonts and a bunch of very large games that take a long time to down load. And really, it's mostly the same data. In any case all of this happens before you need to reboot. And after that, well, it's a cake walk to the end of the upgrade.

Even on a notebook computer, becuae I had to pull out my old one, and I loaded fc24 on that. That thing would onlyu boot to an old copy of fc20, not to the fc23 and fc22 kernels. I don't know why. I needed to boot that because when the system booted after the upgrade it was unable to run the system, and that is just a sad effect so I got a prompt: the rescue prompt. Enter in the root password. Easy peasy.

Now, it's been hot here lately. And I was up before the dawn most of the week and hacking away, writing mean things about the Democrat establishment of the current leadership. In any case, so, at my bad boot, I needed to determine what could have gone wrong. I decided that it would be good to relabel the system. And so I did the touch thing with the magic filename (look it up) so that my drives would be relabeled. But before that . . . I found somewhere that said I needed to boot to a less restictive mode of selinux. What were the exact commands? You had best look for it yourself but basically, in grub (the bootloader), at that part of the boot process, one must select to edit the commands that grub will run, and one must then enter in the correct stuff on te right line (which is easy so if you need to do this, I assume you are smart enough to know what the 'kernel boot line' is, and to know about SELinux, the savior of modern computing, and do what ye need to do to allow the system, how ever it got there, to do what it needs to do. Fortunately I had already done the touch-relabel thing (I don't give these details because if you don't know what I'm talking about, get an expert to help you.)

So, after that, the relabel thing went on for quite a while at the next boot. This was hours later, after my meditating and praying for the souls of those who . . . well that's a different subject. It's been a bad news year for undeserviing people getting harmed, and so . . . well, change of topic.

So, after that, it would let me into X, so I could do the ctl-alt-fn thing and get a command shell. And then I needed to run the desktopswitcher, and select Gnome (which was install, and correct, and waiting to go).

Before that it booted me into X and gave me a blank X terminal except for an xclock, which I believe is in my rclocal file (or whatever teh Xwindows start up file is).

The name of the desktop switchtool in FC24 is . . . drum roll which simulates me looking for the name by checking yesterdays history:

history |grep swi

ย 513 ย system-switch-displaymanager --help

ย 514 ย sudo system-switch-displaymanager --help

ย 515 ย man system-switch-displaymanager ย 

ย 516 ย sudo system-switch-displaymanager gdm

ย 592 ย history |grep swi

The only way I was able to find that, not through any 'help' that Fedora did, was to navigate, in a shell, to the /sbin/ directory and do as follows:

ls *swi*

and then there it was.

system-switch-displaymanager

In my case I switched to gdm.There are other choices, you can look them up if you need them.

The other things that I did to investigate, at first, was to check to make sure that grub-mkconfig had been issued correctly. That was not the issue. It was an SELinux denial so I needed to relabel, but it wouldn't relabel until it would boot correctly, and after that . . . Linux worked. I still needed to fix the display manager. I read in their documentatin that they are switching from Xwindows to something new, but still will use Gnome. But in my case, I still seem to be using Xwindows.

I've used Xwindows for a very long time. And I can't say that I'll miss it that much, as clunky as it has proven to be, and at this point most of what it was meant to do is done much better with other methods. But I can still remember when I first saw it, it was old then. And you could do things with it, back int he old VAX day, or on old Unix systems, and it would work from place to place on a Unix here, or a Unix there. Unix Unix everywhere.

And the History of it was that when Mcrosuch and all that (lefveraged arbitrage) tried to make everyone pay them forever for already invented things and demanded that even if you weren't running their stuff that you had to had to had to pay them anyway because they were just so special.

The revolt against that was called Linux.

And now it is 2016 and everyone and their brother and sister runs Linux, or uses it and doesn't know it and Microsoft's stuff, from back in 1996, is just a footnote on how NOT to do operating systems. Hurrah, Open Source won.

But the battle never ended. next Chapter the arbitrage kings decide to take over the open source world too: enter the 'android' system which is just a fork of LINUX.

But the world wins with Open Source, really. So if Google wants to fork Linux, that is fine with everyone as long as they don't stop others from still using the old version.

In any case Xwindows might be going away, and whatever is replacing it is worthy of study.

And after all of that, there were still issues with SElinux, and needing to allow some things, and change some contexts. I use the sealert program with su privledges, and it tells me how to enable what needs enabling.

if you don't have proper fonts installed you won't see what this picture shows: the output of the echo command with unicode symbols as input. If you are blind basically the unicode are symbols that you could feel as shapes. If you have a 'font box', which would be like that divice with all the pins in it that you can place your hand inside, and the shape of your hand will appear on the surface. If such a thing locked, it would then let a blind person feel it and they would feel the shape. such a device that does that for font shapes would greatly aid the blind. It would be a 'kind of' high resolution new-braille. Call it a 'sean-box' font reader.
