The Truth Barrier Is Back Online

 

The Truth Barrier has not been publishing for many months, due to technical complications that seemed insurmountable to me but weren’t at all. All I had to do was focus on it and fix it.

 

I am glad to be publishing again and I hope to gradually restore the site to the way it was before it crashed and all the design and formatting was lost.

A very important note, going forward:

If my fierce opposition to “the left,” “globalism,” “identity politics,” and/or my growing embracement of Christianity bothers you then this website will bother you. I will no longer, this time, allow tantrums in the comments section. I will always allow discussion, debate, etc but not tantrums seeking to convert me to a leftist or an atheist.

Thank you for respecting the new rules.

Before The End Of Feelings

 

A Moment

 

 

The field where my brother died–

I’ve walked there since.

Weeds and grasses, some chicory

stalks; no trace of the scene

I can still see: a father

and his sons bent above a deer they’d shot,

then screams and shouts.

 

Always I arrive too late

to take the rifle

from the boy I was,

too late to warn him

of what he can’t imagine:

how quickly people vanish;

how one moment you’re standing

shoulder to shoulder,

the next you’re alone in a field.
