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.

Out-Posts and Trigger Points

This is the Is….real…ity of the

Tik Tok…ing point
ban millions of Americans’ platforms
to form a more perfect union

For Israel is our outpost on the frontier
of U.S. hegemony and a controlling globalism
so if you post a contrary talking point
it triggers
a warning that you’re figuring out that Palestine has a side
and you’re seeing the divide was created by design
along UK…US geopolitical lines configuring
a genocide
your sentence “Access Denied”

Trigger warnings began at the beginning on native lands
read “Geronimo the worst of the worst”
fast forward to universities’ “Sensitivities”
hear no evil devils in the details
from sea to seeing universities billeting
“Bias Intervention and Response Teams” and “Informational Activities Policy”
now see
E.nvironmental S.ocial G.overnance for

A Lone Couple

A lone couple trim a tree a day before

Christmas Eve
near a bridge over a creek
so they can see
the crossing scene

The branches cleared
the trunk reveals the growing rise
of stream to creek to river flows
the salmon sea then know their heading

Upstream the cup runneth over
a lone couple sat at a table in an empty
pizza place
through the window from the salad bar
seeing scenes from the kitchen from the register
you could assume they were

February 20, 2024 Hearing the hopes for Men of Liberty

pour all over u.s., tears roll over the treason to us
cables connect to the betrayal of u.s.
when it pours our reign becomes clearer to all of us
from 13 colonies to over 100 bases around the world
our shot....., now drones uncontrolled
we patrol from seas to skies for liberty, no, security

The Conforming Machinery

The “Air Loom Gang” of one man “insane”

cries out “Traitor” in the Parliament of the late
eighteenth century of London’s Enlightenment and change to
a reason he came to see meant a rationality
to a reality weave without spirituality
so he off to Bethlem sent and the Empire overseers
off to overseas bedlam for gory glory to fill their chests
with war and greed

His gang of seven sees today’s G-7
what he and the coming Luddites of cottage industry saw
was the insanity of looming control
the polarizing Industrial Revolution dividing the “Common Grounds”
became the Enclosure Movement
the waking threads of dread the breaking through of the Big Loom
workers moved into factories
men of have conform the men of have not
the conforming machinery
the tiered housing of man and animal

Anniversary to marriage

service to loving to living
friendships berth in a port of recalling
born in water
falling in the pool of reflection

Sees a coming together
a met into a symphony a harmony
a cove of ceremony hallow hears
in celebration

Too become one closer to the beginning
togetherness raises aware
merry is the creek rising above separateness
