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.

Know No

When A.I. turns your know to no
it’s an Alpha…bet that let’s
it’s ABC’s know more than you do
a whiteout voodoo drumming to a dumbing down
which craft
so we round down to sending the same info-structured text

closing the book on creative sentencing to sentence
so when the message arrives it’s been massaged
by a robotic hand man made smart
to insure that your deepest thoughts
are industrially pooled in a vortex vortal of standardized code
rote for a programmed

Notes in Noetic

living is a pre-existing condition
you’re insured
your descendence or ascension dependents and ancestors

but can we see
our primacy is before and after everlasting
Blake’s Death’s Door is your next door
another neighbor another friend another realm on high

Come To Think Of It

Sinking sinking sinking sinking

come to think of it
from the Trail of Tears leaves of what got us here
emergency exigencies excellencies past presidencies
falling sinking

and censorships arrive ashore
yesteryear far far from our shore
invasive relationships ports in calls to civilize they terrorize
a gamesmanship
colonialism posts naming war humanitarianism oh imperialism

He Hymn

He was no Maverick maybe a cowboy
white and branded with a white hat
from a top gun perspective he dropped from heights
of technological superiority on high
bombs to ground down

Nationalists revolutionaries to imperialism
first of French hims followed by American hims
verses of hegemony hedge funds borrowed from u.s.
written in euphemisms for cold invasive wars
he spoke Pentagese

And We Send in …

The old saw plays today in an unusual way
how Coolidge is it “The business of America is business”
Trump tells this Saudi tale first oiled by FDR
that our relationship floats over amendments
to now serve our armaments
industries not of Rights but Bills with interest
for global destabilization and control

from under a Kingdom we came kingdoms come with killing
from the Tower of London to current powers
kingdoms some come to change their names not ways
