2010 In Passing

It was a good year to be a Muneeb Pasha. There have been and will be better years, and there are no altogether bad years, not yet, no - but 2010 was a good year nonetheless.

Pillow Talk

I. Immaculate Misconception

Too many people were hitler this year
so it was unsurprising to hear
from someone, maybe Jon Stewart
(because Jon is one clever J-Streeter),
that Hitler also is hitler.

Through Your Jalousies

I sat atop that hill there, see?

like that sequin for myself
I peeled off her dress.

Civilitas Draconis

Perhaps it was rooted in my fondness for dinosaurs in the pre-Jurassic Park period when they were still underground, or perhaps it was the unpalatable rudeness of an armor-clad St George stabbing his lance through the heart of a scaled, winged Teuton engaged in pathetic imitation of flight, or perhaps it was just the broader human psychological imperative to root for the underdog at play, but irrespective of the underlying cause, the result has always been and still is an overweening adoration of Dragonkin that borders on the fanatical but is grounded securely in reason.
