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.

Managing roots into a band

likes it flat as in horizontal like a flow
marketing spreadsheets into music sheets with a cover
got them into Huck Finn Avocado
the mix in the guacamole is the harmony and discipline
of fun…damentally
becoming creators in partnership
with what
thou art
richness in living together inspiring a trippy

WHO Let the ManDate Your Data

Made in China anti-addictive surveillance system
begins for gamers it’s for the kids but it’s a game changer
Made in China with a little Googlese Project Dragonfly
for personal search engineers
but the real railroading is the rollout of the ultimate tracking tack
Made in China the social credit system an online behavioral score
it’s you’re made
in China

but what makes us from being made the same
First Amendment rights not to be shot for our thoughts
and our organs harvested are
those principles at the heart of our Body Politic our personal beliefs
are being trampled with a herd mentality from a new shot

It Hasn’t Left

Love it or leave it hasn’t left
was right with us from the founding
left reds blacks women and the poor
this lore
spells u.s. with illusion and delusion
this year
Trump ups these charges with more
of the same old same old

from the white right we’re Trump..ed up
with a pouty whine and a Mussolini-smirking happy face
“Why don’t they go back… if you’re not happy… you can leave right now”
oh say can’t you see
men women fascism and militarism
him’s of our history modus operandi lives again
trailing tears following fears from the right White

YesSir CanSir

The malignant growth of the YesSir CanSir of authoritarian capitalism
is lead
by U.S. it’s most aggressive now Trumpian form
a distortion of we through its usual sorting
class race hate
now man…I…infesting a metastasizing of
Rich and Strong

the so-called Great Powers fascistic make-up
paint their faces with democracy and demagoguery
into the latest face-off
U.S.S. trolling dolls for layers of provocation

The Role Called

The river flows as the soul goes
there the bends there never ends
don’t be damned up about boulders on your shoulders
find your way around let your feats rise
till your thoughts overflow
and the stream fulfills the dream
the wish is your will
the damn it man made it
cascade the shade in sprinkled light

Wither the weather
storm cells perseverate cell towers metastasize
five gee’s and we cell phones held heading unheard
for sale is afloat and you are the antidote
salesmanship is incorporated and corporal arms sales have reached your arm
the pin prick of witch hunts is now a global vaccine scene
