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.

Forty Cattle Make a Run

herd immunity is no protection
for anti-mandate vaxxers or buffalo that once roamed
for the cattleization has become our nation
herded into lines to be shot

stampedes into the news
cows escape from Manning Beef
a slaughter house is not a home
on any range
home home … to escape forty cattle make a run
an open gate…way on Pico Rivera to get a peek
into industrial rendering
of the meek

A Fourth Herd on Nudgement Day

We’ve seen these scenes before

we knew
there were slogans and mine games
Man-ipulations date to the way back
sex race and sacred states
remember when the Snow was White hi ho hi ho and off to work we go
behold A.I. A.I. and off to work on us they go

From a textbook “Nudge…” a behavioral science
from psyops to behavioral insight teams from Vietnam and dominoes
to higher tumbling towers for power 9/11 and the bearded skyscraper scapegoat
the WMD’s you never see

to nudge units
fudge the facts nudge the judge…meant for you to believe
behavioral econ…omics is a science you buy it
it’s a behavioral Military Industrial Medical Complex
“Get a shot and have a beer” chase the fear
the invasion home coming is here

So “Brave New World” Newspeak “Vaccination Equals Liberty” L.A. Times Front Page 4/28/21

Who ordered that

oh the centuries 18 19 20 21st century
the standard model
has been visions divisions and invasions
racism militarism and authoritarianism
it’s always been very scary for natives women blacks and browns
from Redcoats in your room to Ottoman’s removed
World War I World War II
who ordered that

and the spread of disease was it policy was it just us or u.s.
wrapping blankets with intent
covering up for a more sinister creed
white male supremacy for a Manifest Destiny
a beginning imperial lust for land gold and the dust where the buffalo roamed
we spread the disease we just seceded from and seeded a pox to succeed
ridding the colonizing crown of Britain and then the riddle of we colonizing
riddling the tribal continent with immigration migration and disease

A Cabinet Outing

According … ing to Biden we’re in another
Fauci’s x-rays on display breathe deep beware be scared the fourth wave
another arms race and it’s yours
and as in all our invasive
the corporate revolving door
swings wide

in his Cabinet is a treasure trove
of vaccine inner interests ingredients
the business of America is Big Business
just add a little ASG and in a Blinken a little Rice
there’s a Lander and it’s Dunn

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
