I am significantly illusioned as I carry a tablet of newsprint, a woven bag full of cable cords and an old track phone through the streets as children lie on the sidewalk and giggle. As their friends draw chalk lines around the bodies.
I am too proud to ask for directions to Fourth and Revolution.
Just last night I was on the floor in fetal position after the election.
Just last night I had an orgasm.
Is love a mechanism for forgetting?
I am significantly illusioned as I carry a tablet of newsprint, a woven bag full of cable cords and an old track phone.
I am well equipped for the revolution as long as there's a power source.
Here are the children drawing chalk lines around bodies.
Here is a woman carrying more bags and bumming a cigarette.
Here is America.
The killing spree never ended, it just got politically correct.
If they go low and we go high, they will stay on the ground making laws and we will float amongst the privileged clouds of abstraction.
Must I remind you that gravity is not selective?
God also has a place amongst the clouds and last I checked
God isn't doling out healthcare or voting rights.
This is the killing ground so liberals get your guns, the KKK won't enter your educated discourse.
But can we find the ground again
The ground soaked with native blood?
Can we meet in the streets littered with children
Littered with black bodies?
Or would descension send us into a tailspin
as we recognized the stench?
As we recognized our own weak stomachs.
Buy a bag of apples, keep them in the fridge and throw one in your bag every time you leave the house.
But don’t ever eat it.
Instead, empty your bag at the end of the day then set the apple on the closest surface.
Leave it there.
When it shrivels, it will teach you things.
Put flowers in vases everywhere.
Let them sit until they’ve sucked up all the water then dried then molded.
There are no secret gardens
Search for things that are not there.
What the fuck is going on?
As the wind blows paper tape
Tied to stakes
Consider taking cigarettes
To Standing Rock
A full bladder makes it hard to do just about anything except draw dots on your fingers just under the cuticles.
In the face of we’re all heading towards death
The same no exemptions
What is fear?
What is freedom?
If you never smoked weed out of an apple in high school, you missed a critical coming of age ritual.
Or do I mean crucial?
No one outgrows:
Slip n slides
Mac n cheese
At least we all have that
Weather change is dependent on the season.
No person is the salt of the earth only salt is the salt of the earth but salt is the magic of the earth.
Never eat a human
