Some thoughts about these days in America. Enough people are ready for World War. This time it will not be pretty…
Good poets turn blood into verse.
No goin’ back,
Hit ’em hard,
Built by the gun,
Civil War gonna kill you.
Brother at Bill’s yesterday with Sun Dance scars said Jihad is a Native American idea, the twelve steps. Gave him a draft of my poem book for free.
The book starts:
Attack the corrupt without mercy and extreme brutality as you would attack a climb or pull a weight. Why should I be nice? Why should I not be angry? Why should I not be able to melt the ice in someone’s heart if I need love? I am sick, I am tired, poor, angry, and bold. This new anger is an energy for change. It is a catalyst, a fire. Energy, for a new world. I want to see hope in the youth’s eyes. They are lost. Sad, confused. Inspire the youth. Bring them the hope that the crushing student loan debt they have before they even begin adult life will be absolved or the liberation will come from simply not paying it. Go to a purely cash based economy or better yet, learn to use gift economy and never use money again. Dissociate yourself from the system of capitalism and you will be free to create something new. Squat, march, move, live, and love. Get into cooperatives. Go out and find friends. Associate and love them, give them the chance to know that you are there and that you care. Love and live not like some man or woman looking for emotional support, but as one willing to give support. Do not ask for anything, give everything and learn to live in a new way.
Brother Just Got Lynched
Don’t matter if it was suicide or the Klan,
I had a woman over for dinner last night,
Claimed to be for peace, ignorant of rage,
Why people in the streets of Ferguson?
They there perhaps because its that,
…or killing their neighbor the Klan member,
…or killing themselves in despair,
…or killing a cop for shooting their brother,
No peace without justice, you don’t see it?
This place is covered in blood?
This a lynching?
Yes, either by his own hand or by the Klan.
Don’t matter, suicide is a lynching by spirit,
Trump killed this brother,
Whites scared of terrorists,
They should be scared.
Does not matter who it is, America will bleed for its sins…
