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.

Always There

From the first breath from your first look up

from your first steps every turn those twists
the churning tears the rising switchbacks the stirring mountain highs
the valleys lived the streams of consciousness
the shoring up the rivers down the riding waves of rapids dreams
the timbre of the voices heard and the echoes reassure

the howl
of canyon creeks thoughts received ford relief
in the always there the inner metaphysics
the arc in the texture of the crossing beams
the other day the other way the other side

Women as shamans and the Empire of hims

to control her and men
herbs and plants to outlast their distaste of the last supper

hiding in the open empty religions
State exploitation and production of material
