“Wisdom does not necessarily come with age.

Sometimes age just shows up all by itself.”

--Tom Wilson.


is my birthday,


it is Flag Day,


it is the birthday

of Trump,

which applies

a smudge

upon my joy;

but I share it

with Boy George

and actor

Sullivan Stapleton.


wave your flags

and forget about

the Human Stain.
