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.

Sir Man Summoning

Newsom’s new sum summons us as masked he didn’t ask
scientists of his choir sing sing in condemnments
for you to breathe in your exhales to inhale his hails
the governor ignores your your in order

to his storied word his book ends now cover your mouth
you hear the censorship it’s the only voice covered
adhered the good citizen sees the citizen
as sinizen and East meets West
con…figuration force forged face covering facial recognition as
ignition cognition of a new religious

White Lies Matter

Hijacked from their homes which came first

the protests or the slave ships
egged on by outside agitators Antifa no
know it’s the crackle of simmering fascism
white lies from a White House
Trump…eting bugle calls from the “Trail of Tears”
to George Floyd’s “I can’t breathe”
echoing Eric Garner’s in the land of the …

a President with the machismo of a bullying teen
from the bunker beneath the branch of the highest scene
hunkering from the people in the streets
searching for the Liberty Tree

It’s Stepping Up

Remember the simple old invasion days

only a few decades away from today
you’re in the land of the free and all they wanted from you
urine your pee check…mate for a Police State
your pen…is drained writ large
it’s an erection of Big Brother a tinkle toy
in the hands of Uncle Sam

Remember the old Military Industrial Complex has flexed
its armaments now ready to inject the militarized medicalrised industraments
of its Gods…Zillions DARPA and BARDA
into U.S.
new apps in the colonizing collapse of the interior nation
vac’s and other attacks can keep track…
authoritarian regimes what are you doing behind the scenes
from animal feet in the snow to cold marks for kids in school
it’s stepping up
the chain of command and control

in the living room of light produce words
to produce roots
that reproduce thoughts that take shape
to create more of us not by the numbers
now so cumbersome

but a sum of an equation that’s more than parts in a
that figures the physical act makes reproduction the rush of life
that physical fact manufactures more of me’s
as a song of we a´ la the birds and the bees
a spell check of man as a con…figuration that is only confirmed
by birth
into a reproduction line in order to assemble one’s genealogy
one seeds one sows you become some one’s man made

Awash in a New Land

“First they came for …” an exercise of religious freedom

then abridging speech and pressing not for the Pearly Gates
or our Bill
but Bill Gates formulations that mass gatherings should have

Our new nation revolutionized the King Done
now we’re flattering a Queen of Imperial Disease for a crowning
kind of speech on Corona disease
to capture the contagion we must contain
what remains of the Ten Amendments and Ten Commandments
listening to the Queen of Invasion of the common…wealth
-Stay at home Social distancing Shelter in place-
if only she and her aristocratic European ancestors
had only taken this tack instead of catching the wind…
fall for attacking enslaving and engraving
a New World in a gold and silver
lying lining five centuries of mass graves
of visible and invisible
crimes of La Corona of colonialism
