“Jabotinsky recited the poem [In The City of Slaughter] at public gatherings throughout the Pale. Young Jews in the most remote corners of Russia, even those who did not know Hebrew, began to quote from its translation. Its impact motivated many to join the self-defense corps that was springing up everywhere. It inspired them to throw off their hopelessness and prepare for Jewish pro-activism and self-emancipation. These gatherings were often infiltrated by the secret police. When these agents were detected at a gathering, music would begin to play and the audience would rise and waltz around the room with tears in their eyes.”
We were going single file
Through his rice paddies
And the farmer
Started hitting the lead track
With a rake
He wouldn’t stop
The TC went to talk to him
And the farmer
Tried to hit him too
So the tracks went sideways
Side by side
Through the guy’s fields
Instead of single file
Hard On, Proud Mary
Bummer, Wallace, Rosemary’s Baby
The Rutgers Road Runner
Go Get Em-Done Got Em
Went side by side
Through the fields
If you have a farm in Vietnam
And a house in hell
Sell the farm
And go home
We were so poor I had to take the place of the bait in the mousetrap. All alone in the cellar, I could hear them pacing upstairs, tossing and turning in their beds. “These are dark and evil days,” the mouse told me as he nibbled my ear. Years passed. My mother wore a cat-fur collar which she stroked until its sparks lit up the cellar.

Ten Years in Iraq - SAN ANTONIO - AUGUST 2006: PFC Josh Stein, 22, at home with his new-born daughter Jasmine on August 23, 2006 in San Antonio, Texas. Stein lost his legs to an EFP explosion in Iraq on Easter Sunday 2006, and is now a double-amputee rehabilitation patient at Brook Army Medical Center. The explosion that took his legs ripped through the Bradley armored vehicle he was driving. Stein had the presence of mind to drive the vehicle out of the attack zone and park it before passing out.

Sandy’s, Now Mike’s
I live next door to a music shop here in Cambridge—a place that used to be Sandy’s. Something happened to Sandy—they think it might’ve been a stroke. Point is, his mind isn’t where it used to be. So, a guy named Mike who’d been working at Sandy’s for years took up the lease, and now Sandy’s is Mike’s. I like that, and I like Mike. After I came in, he handed me a turn of the century banjo and so I threw my phone on the floor to record this short improv. If anything, the recording is good for its ending.
