"The Covid Diaries: Cat on the Piazza"

San Georgio, Venice. 1955

by Rudy Buckhardt

“Poetry writings created during the Covid epidemic, stories of alone, stories of family and friends,
stories of love affairs, stories of abuse, stories of struggling with disease, stories of loss,
stories of survival, stories of walls and ceilings and sky . . .”

"Nigel the black cat under the dark sky slips through the fence . . ."

"on a good day, lipstick, rouge et rose et rose on a bad day the rain hold a funeral peace of the angels to you running gun tag it is raining, raining flowers from heaven tea soak branches that flower the silence haunted spaces places my heart goes and something like ammacord heat and light ammacord night ammacord shades of London Bixby the cat in the moonlight lost . . . this could go on all night the white of poetry the dress of poetry (Emily Dickenson in her garden) o' blue sweeter said sweet hallway movie your love affair is a political event tandem movies porn is an aesthetic deep in the night in a church basement fashioning clay push, push the bounds tears fall, falling down streets falling down the dark rain "I am not the war, I am the peace" king Roby, king Roby permissions movies they all look so young secret caches of language of permissions of poetry of meaning of place an entire routine of carefully placed people an antique chair an antique table where the servants ate . . . the war games the plague in the moonlight and the ghost of Friday the cat on a Monday day holiday cats waiting for the last train . . ."

The New Age Renaissance Republic White Flag Manifesto

"we surrender . . . now give us what we want"

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
- from "The New Colossus"
(inscribed on the Statue of Liberty)
by Emma Lazarus
