Post-Internet Poetry        



goodbye,
high school
friend






   
                                 

    Inside the apartment the men shared,
    authorities said they found guns,
    ammunition and bomb-making
    material, along with a framed
    picture of Oklahoma City bomber
    Timothy McVeigh on
    a bedroom dresser.





               

                                                                                                                            

A Neo- Nazi was murdered in a double homicide.
Someone who never touched his greasy amber strands shared a trending article.
You loathed that your own dichotomies quickly collide.


“Thank you for taking more scum off this earth”, they replied,
yet I bellow at the looming aspens asking them to return you to me.  

A Neo- Nazi and was murdered in a double homicide.


Every time his folly away at his mind and it would always coincide
with him returning to the ward
through knife or the child-proof bottle.

you loathed that your own dichotomies quickly collide.


In my FB filter bubble, an anti-fascist dialectic would collide
with memories that shrieked “ if he only had a fair shot he could have been as magnificent as the orange sands in Moab.”
A Neo- Nazi was murdered in a double homicide.


Did the Go Fund Me to fly your body home from Tampa thrive?
“Too busy” to go to the funeral, mourning in the comfort of 12 point Helvetica. You loathed that your own dichotomies quickly collide.


My remorse is a small yellow icon with a tear from its eye,
maybe we were never as close as the keys are to our fingers

A Neo- Nazi and was murdered in a double homicide.

You loathed that your own dichotomies quickly collide.








“Jeremy went down there expecting a break from the stress he was under in Massachusetts,” she said. “As soon as Jeremy arrived in Florida, the stark difference between the promises made and reality were apparent.”



“Jeremy went through a lot of struggle in his life, and national socialism offered him the rigidity he desired, and offered him solutions for the things out of his control,” Kaizer wrote in an email. “So it’s been really hard to try and tell his family, but yes he did hold white supremacist beliefs and national socialist beliefs.”


“Two days before the shooting, Walter Oneschuk said, Andrew had called to say he was coming home after less than two weeks in Florida. He was eagerly awaiting his son’s arrival when he heard a knock on the door of his suburban Boston home: Two police officers told him Andrew was dead.”
