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.

protect human tracts and lead into cul-de-sacs
of lives gerrymandered by politicians
to suit their ties
to the petro-pharmo-medical-industrial bosses

Remarkably They Came

From far far away there came a wave
more precise to say five waves
remarkably the same
in time frame

They came from the center of our galaxy
from a "space object"
subjected to our space logic
digested for over two years by our scientists
then regurgitated to us
as an after burp
this mysterious source, not as a main course
