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.

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

Bats Man and Eating Animals

Panacea for a Pandemic

bats man and eating animals
the virus of us blood letting from a wet market

A consciousness shot heard round the new global reality
begins to see Chardin’s “Noosphere”
not the man made Anthropocene but a means to an
interconnected one
not just to one species but one with all thee’s
birds bees the tallest trees streams the living truth
the heard immunity
“Thou shalt not kill”

Little Chicks

Chicken Little the sky is falling little chicks

with bigger breasts
juicy and tender big vendors adore your taste for their flesh
quarter pound hens in pens you’re abreast to a battery cage assault
a little piece of dead sandwich fed between a bun sized processing
by the Huns of die…eating

Specification animals engineered to fill
packaging protocols
the sky is falling for rockets and planes’ with fuel droppings
no regulations for space race…isms
kerosene black soot hydrazine

Calabasas What Does It Tell Us

Calabasas what does it tell us

foggy morning helicopter parent on his way to coach
driven parents’ children
crashed in the Santa Monica Mountains
harmonicas in harmony

One of nine was a man of fame and following
an overflowing streaming
of memories memorabilia ability and memorials
adulations and idolatry
the hall the call of fame but what of the dam
the watershed the tears of her the fears of his
the fall from grace the rape case at stake life in prison
Kobe for sexual assault and false imprisonment
rape is not adultery

Unchanted Territory

Protests are sweet if they’re in the streets…

in a land oh say we’d like under our hand
Venezuela Hong Kong oh Shah of bygone Iran
the way we sweep our streets is war policy for poverty’s teens
and institutional means of deceit
let’s meet

U.S.A. U.S.A. U.S…teacher uses a Personal Necessity
to protest nuclear testing then a later day to protest
a trickle down saints library on the rise in the Simi Hills
brings down a year later
Personal Necessity days used for political protest arrested
a Testament to Union and District restrictions
on us
