"The best theology today,
in its repudiation of a
rhetorical religious idealism,
finds itself in agreement
with a recurrent note
in contemporary poetry….

We keep coming back
and coming back/
To the real: to the hotel
instead of the hymns/
That fall upon it
out of the wind.  We seek/
… Nothing beyond reality.
Within it/
the spirit’s alchemicana….

(From 'An Ordinary Evening
in New Haven,'
in The Collected Poems
of Wallace Stevens….

… Not grim/
Reality, but reality grimly seen….

New Concern with the Arts

adds up to one big lie."

  1. Mr. Cullinane,

    Dylan couldn’t have said it better. Another song that rings true through the ages is “Masters of War.” No matter how I try to look at war(s), I can never get passed that song. One more thing: I think if this government wasn’t censoring the average person’s view of what is really going on, we would be on a different path already. NBC, FOX, etc., make me nauseous.
