South Carolina approves plan to exile it’s homeless ::: We have officially entered the land of 1984 folks. I can’t even believe this is real. “Police officers will now be assigned to patrol the city center and keep homeless people out. They will also be instructed to strictly enforce the city’s “quality of life” laws, including bans on loitering, public urination, and other violations. And just to ensure that no one slips through, the city will set up a hotline so local businesses and residents can report the presence of a homeless person to police.” Homeless people can stay at the shelter, but they’re not permitted to walk off the premises. In fact, Columbia will even post a police officer on the road leading to the shelter to ensure that homeless people don’t walk towards downtown. If they want to leave, they need to set up an appointment and be shuttled by a van. You can shuttle them somewhere or you can go to jail. That’s, in fact, an abuse of power. This is disgusting, but not that surprising in a country that no longer respects individuals freedoms and rights. Homeless people are still people and the vast majority are citizens. Many are veterans. They are still entitled to the right to be in public spaces, and the streets, sidewalks and parks in a central city or an expensive neighborhood are still the property of all the public. In addition to ignoring individual rights, there is a move in this country to criminalize being poor. This is segregating the rich from the poor. That way, rich people don’t have to be bothered with seeing the impacts of their actions.

My cousin recently traveled to South Africa, where someone with her background would typically be considered neither white nor black, but colored, a distinct racial group in South Africa. Her skin is light enough so that she was most often taken to be white, which was something she was prepared…

The Cows At Night by Hayden Carruth

The moon was like a full cup tonight,
too heavy, and sank in the mist
soon after dark, leaving for light

faint stars and the silver leaves
of milkweed beside the road,
gleaming before my car.

Yet I like driving at night
in summer and in Vermont:
the brown road through the mist

of mountain-dark, among farms
so quiet, and the roadside willows
opening out where I saw

the cows. Always a shock
to remember them there, those
great breathings close in the dark.

I stopped, and took my flashlight
to the pasture fence. They turned
to me where they lay, sad

and beautiful faces in the dark,
and I counted them–forty
near and far in the pasture,

turning to me, sad and beautiful
like girls very long ago
who were innocent, and sad

because they were innocent,
and beautiful because they were
sad. I switched off my light.

But I did not want to go,
not yet, nor knew what to do
if I should stay, for how

in that great darkness could I explain
anything, anything at all.
I stood by the fence. And then

very gently it began to rain.

This sky where we live,
Is no place to lose our wings,
So fly,
Fly,
Fly.
