Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: first, to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; last to not only fighting for personal privacy & the freedom of information, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. She is a poet, always. All these efforts find representation here: "ah, Mephistophelis" is so named after the last line of Christopher Marlowe's Dr. Faustus, whose heretical success flouted the censor for a time.

4/01/2020 BREAKING NEWS: Trump RESIGNS In The Middle Of Coronavirus Briefing.

Apparently he had just submitted his resignation letter to the White House and the rest of the country... on Twitter.

Happy First Day Of April.  This has been my first attempt at this sort of celebration that I can remember.   If it wasn't perfect, it wasn't meant to be.  I used to think the first of April was a cruel, mean-spirited holiday.

I think, as I learned more and more about how this world is put together, I have changed my mind.  A little.  I certainly meant no spirits cruelty, but to liven up the bleakness.

Stay well, stay safe.  Stay alive. 

Keep your head,  and - keep fighting.

Be seeing you.
