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.

Unmasked man vs. masked man beard or clean shaven
body counts from Vietnam to flu and you.s.a.
know what to do it’s the ABC’s and the 123’s
if we all do it it must be true left right step step step
if you don’t know the dead-pandemic numbers

From Strawberry Fields to Strawberry Blondes

From strawberry fields to strawberry blondes
we bend now break, rules made for heaven’s sake
unions between soil and toil, lovers and life
being sacrificed and sliced into
strawberry fields and strawberry blondes

Furrows that are fallow are now being plowed by the shallow
egg brokers, breaking into the womb, we call Mother
breaking and entering into creation
assault and battery on relation
