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.

The Lightning That Lives

There is no way you can frame defame

or contain the afterlife “Zapata after Zapata” Zapata is ever lasting
reviving his…story is the art thou we need
look up his deeds his pious sacred creed his steed

Amen to them aflame and unafraid high heels and horse a galloping
from Museo Belles Artes for all of us to re see him
the peasant noble man of Morelos and the moral of his story
now rides again let it never end
“La Revolucion”

Food, flora, fauna
earth, wind, showers, flowers
international worldwide industrial powers
eating and aging in the industrial era

chop it down, ground it round
it’s the industrial appetite of my age
blinded by what we’re shown
we swallowed, burped, and breathed it
inhaling the promise of progress
through the industrial haze

Satellite Strings in a Dark Musk

Last night in the dark night sky

there was a beautiful flowing streaming UFO
oh know
it was an unfortunate flying objection
advertising a connectivity destroying creativity in the name of the poor
the rich Elon Musk with an act scent of Mars
aggressively stringing satellites pulling sleighs of in…flowmation
a kneeling down
to the Crown controllers of today they have made
the contrails of day all the way to the heavens
crisscrossing our stars we are now laced to the magnates

Pan a Man…acea

The God Pan
the man Pan
it is wrong to push or shove the man Pan
but his is a forceful hymn
a commandment from the church of his doctorate

Dr. Pan sees what he wants for all of us to
his Pan…acea is for all men women and we’re all his children
for he is playing God where no other
religious personal philosophical or parental
may intervene

On the Road to Rest in Pieces

Rest in peace
it used to be said, when you were dead
rest in peace has been demeaned
rest in pieces, what does that mean for your peace

Some parts living out lives,
on movies made for TV
your parts parceled out
while you were still in one piece
