That Terrible Autumn Thing
It's just terribly sad to watch all this voting going on. All this pride in an unaccountable huddling around un-human ideas -- ideas which never integrate the crucial attribute of human individuality and everything that means -- in order to distribute raw force upon every each-other of a people indignantly clamoring for peace and brotherhood; these contradictions and evasions cannot but work to deaden the soul with gloom for any broad-stroke of an American future.
A man might steal such moments as he can which reflect the passing light, late in the day, but sensitivity to trails of history can only bring melancholy at watching otherwise very worthy individuals indulge this rot.
It gets expensive to say so, and it's hard to remember why it was ever important to try.
