Preview Issue Poetry: Tom Ferguson

Manic Depressive
by Tom Ferguson

The scale and abandon
incredible cruelty
from the near native genocide
of the americas
to the european and asian holy wars
torture, starvation, disease, slavery, exploitation
a continuation and elaboration
of the patriarchal

The end of slavery and child labor
the rise of women and workers and
lawful protection
the intuition in the 60s
and the growth since
of the overthrow
of fear of death
by joy of life
