The Last Performance

You’re sitting in a theater.

The actors on stage are engaging in some kind of dispute, but you can’t make head or tail of it. An invisible THING appears to be the issue, and it won’t go away.

One actor wants to build a church to it. Another actor wants to run and hide.

At moments you almost grasp the THING, but then it slips away.

Perhaps it’s a lost relative.

A wind blows across the stage. A pile of leaves stir. Autumn. The trees in the forest are going to enter mock-death. The two actors, against their better judgment, are weeping. They seem to be looking past the footlights at you for an answer. This is silly and sentimental. Why are you here? You could be walking the dog or cleaning out the cellar.

Somewhere—was it an office—there was a clock on the wall and you were there watching it, waiting for a clerk to come out of the back room and hand you a folder.

You were young and you were running on a playground for no reason. It was early in the morning. July.

Now on the stage, a doctor appears in a surgical gown. The two actors giggle. They roll up their sleeves and he gives them an injection. They strut around, as if they’ve won a prize. Through a window at the rear of the stage, you can see a deserted city street. A policeman walks out of a bar, sits down at the curb, and taps his night stick on his leg.

You can’t remember how you got into the theater. Did a friend give you a ticket? Did you receive a message ordering you to watch the play?

You take out your cell phone. You check to make sure you clicked the lock on the drone in the garage. You scan the battle cruiser in the China Sea. All quiet on that front. There is a message from the President’s aide. Don’t forget the meeting tomorrow morning.

Now you realize you’re having an episode.

You stand up and move along the row, walk up the aisle and come out into the empty lobby. You call the White House doctor.

He says, “You took the second shot this morning. You’re having an adverse reaction. Where’s your driver?”

You walk outside. Your driver is standing next to the car. You wave at him. He takes out his phone. The doctor is telling him to take you to Walter Reed.

You’re on a gurney. They’re wheeling you along a corridor.

You hear a voice. “Mark it down as a COVID aneurysm.”

They’re injecting you with Versed. They’re going to intubate you.

In a moment of extreme clarity, you realize you’re not going to wake up. They’re not going to let you. They’re going to put you on a ventilator, and you’re going to stay under and check out of this life.

Your 63 years seem very brief. You were on a stage arguing with someone, and that was that. What was the issue? Something about a germ, a virus. Ridiculous.

You were supposed to be an expert on the subject. But there was nothing to be expert about. There was only a small fading idea.

It’s all right. You’re immortal. But it seems quite mad to have been guiding the nation on its response to a vaporous notion.

How did that happen?

    Get out before the theatre locks you in.

    Thank you, Jon.

  2. Eluard says:

    I like these mystical-political pieces, Jon. They lift my kundalini. Take me to another space.

    Vaporous notions. That’s what we’ve been dealing with a long time. The Un-real. They want to make the un-real real. Not like an artist inviting you to participate in imaginative journeys but like fiends tricking you into abdicating your humanity. And there may be a point, for some, of no return. At least, for a long while.

    Stay human. The heart. Love. Nature. Remember who we are.

  3. D. Smith says:

    There’s so much REAL news to write about. I don’t understand why you keep putting out these fantasy situation articles.

  4. D. Smith says:

    There’s so much real news out there, I don’t understand why you keep putting out these fantasy situation articles.

    You got me to cry for Fauci! The WORST! How much I despised (and FEARED) that little WEASEL with the heart of a REFLEX HAMMER…

    My CHEST HEAVED and tears filled up my eyes. My lips trembled UNCONTROLLABLY. Was the GREATEST thing! RELEASED a TON of FEARS. I actually felt HUMAN for the first time in…I dont know.

    I could look at myself in the mirror again. And admit that I GOT OWNED. And FEEL.

    And it dawned on me: my HEART had contracted from The Corona. The REAL ONE.


    “They triumphed over him
    by the blood of the Lamb
    and by the word of their testimony;
    they did not love their lives so much
    as to shrink from death.”

    REV 12:11

    Wondering why all corporations are acting together like an army? All are owned by the same people and are controlled from the same office.

    Make a list with all big corporations you know. Amazon, wallmart, cocacola, apple, facebook, tesla, twitter, google.. all big pharma all banks, all auto makers, all food producers, all media it does not matter left or right….

    Now open Search for corporation. Goto holders. You will see who owns it. who controls it. At owners you will see: Vanguard, Blackrock, State Street corp… Repeat for all. you will always see the same owners. Everything is controlled by Blackrock and Vanguard. They own control shares in all big american corporations. Zuckerberg, billgates, musk… are just puppets.

    And of course, blackrock, controls US government.

    The big banks own Federal Reserve.. But all big banks are controlled by Vanguard and Blackrock. They name the CEO of all big corporations.

    “You hear a voice. ‘Mark it down as a COVID aneurysm.’”

    ‘But I came in with a bruised knee!’

    ‘Mark it down as a COVID death.’

    ‘But what if I’m not dead?’

    ‘Mark it down as a COVID death.’

    ‘What if I came in with a cut toe?’

    ‘Mark it down as a COVID death.’

    ‘What if I came down with a bad case of sunburn?’

    ‘Mark it down as a COVID death.’

    ‘Well this is just silly. What if there is NOTHING wrong with me at all?’

    ‘Mark it down as a COVID death.’

    ‘That’s it! I’m going to report you! This is just ridiculous! You just want EVERYTHING to be classified a COVID death. How do you like THAT, sucker?’

    ‘Roll up your sleeve.’




    (After a short silence…)

    ‘Mark it down as a COVID death. Let’s break for lunch…’

    Great story, love it, if only it weren’t true!

  10. Rick in Phoenix says:

    Let’s review shall we? Rick’s Covid Repetitive Reference Points for Resistance Training.
    1. There has been no increase in overall death rate.
    2. Congress and possibly USPS not subject to Biden’s 6 Edicts on 9/9/21…
    3. Contagion is a myth. (book: The Myth of Contagion)
    4. Pompeo was caught on an open mic telling Trump “it’s a drill”. Trump responded “you should have told me”– at the start of this at a press conference with Fauci and Birx.
    5, Vaccinated cannot donate blood.
    6. Symptoms of what is called covid is radiation sickness. (book: Invisible Rainbow)
    7. Traffic accidents are occurring as graphene oxide injections trigger reactions near 5G cellphone towers!? 9/23/21

  11. Larry C says:

    “Remember, as recently as 50 years ago, we thought it was “absolutely true” that low-fat diets prevented obesity and heart disease. To say otherwise was to be spreading disinformation. You remember how well that worked out.”


    Now…about that COVID claim…

  12. Greg C. says:

    The second person to get the Pfizer jab died shortly afterward. His name was William Shakespeare. Exit stage right.

  13. Mos Craciun says:

    Please watch and distribute :

  14. Tracy Kolenchuk says:

    Hey Jon, you are clearly an artist. Do you have any artist friends? What’s happening to them? Is COVID designed to rid the world of artists? Since the pandemic started, artists have disappeared – they can only survive by swallowing the new pills and singing the new songs…
