Penned Resistance

Penned Resistance is poetic ink urging us to thInk about what is happening to us, to the U.S., to the world, and all that whirls around and inside us. To thInk as our true selves is to resist the forces that seek to occupy or control our thoughts . . . as an individual, a citizen, a man, a woman, a human, a Yeti.

Penned ink to thInk is a link to our primordial freedom ... our freedom to be who we truly are. Let it ring.

Fire the Flag Burning

“Fire and Fury” for North Korea
fire for kneeling if you’re an NFL player
feeling his needing to bow before his beliefs
to take a knee as a he who is free
not chained to fees

the right to stand up or kneel anthem
the us with a Constitution and Bill
to rights not to be owned but to own your say
not to be Trump…ed by the past owner of Generals
bemoaning the lost violence
with his faith
in golf courses hotels and casinos gambling in lies
that our heritage is pre not post
Civil War

Controlled Subjects and Substances

Machinery of imperial residency turn on and off
“Permissive environments”
to sustain their addiction to power and greed
“Gateway mechanisms”
to over dose us lies primed gateway

a ray gun of Nixon’s “Public Enemy Number One” in ’71
drug abuse
aimed to break down a key node of the coming second ’76
that spirit defeated the mother of all imperial residencies
on the rise in the ’60’s had to be targeted as it has been
since the founders lost their way…
layed for profit landing U.S. on a Trail of Tears
and our first cultural war unfair demonizing the Peacepipe the Sun Dance
erasing the buffalo steps became the cattleization of a new nation
and the fencing of free can now be seen
in kettling of protests in zones
for control

An Old Refrain

“Let them eat cake”
said Marie a queen not far from the guillotine
she of Austrian aristocracy and French monarchy
the old regime didn’t see the lack of bread or the sans-culottes
who would’ve thought

that today let them eat a custom cake would make a
Court date
isn’t fake news it Trump…its from the white White House
a chill on Bastille and the thrill of independence ways
for a “cake artist” right to discriminate
in pastries of “Religious Liberty” and “Free Speech” this base case
half-baked takes to the Supreme Court
Masterpiece Cake Shop vs. Colorado

This Flotsam Flotilla

This arriving flotsam flotilla
wreckage of the Anthropocene jetsam
from air to sea a new continent sends its drift
microplastic marines of the deep are invading your brain
sticks and stones can break your bones
but nano plastics can stick in your head

Rock of Ages in the anthropocene
eccentric path
interstellar asteroid
in an egocentric century A.I. A.I. have we forgot the importance
of the dark side
artificial intelligence arrives in the midst of the artificially lit
as we wit…ness the first I.A.

I ask
are we on steroids enhanced by our own light…ness oppressing the all…
seeing night
Oumuamua Interstellar Asteroid spinning like a pencil
writes in the night I.A. I.A. mind-boggling
