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.

An Arrangement

He took up the guitar to be around his violin
the strings of things that tie
he improved and he could sing and they began to play
a couple and then a bass
a trio then a band and a violin that couldn’t sing
so another bow figured in then a mandolin
drums a banjo and so it goes
then some bars then some clubs

and what began as a couple became a group
and the first violin took a seat
at rehearsals loosening the tie was the wait
the listening turned to thinking what had begun
to bring the fingers closer to the rings on their hands
in bands of peace and love

The Kingdom Comes, ….. Oh God

The country of we, … are to believe
the U.S. of Hemispherical Supremacy
the White House of Mar-a-Lago reflects on the poor
of Venezuela
is a la la lullaby that rests
assured of amnesia in America

Dictatorships are dictated by U.S. to us
you can be the Shah of Iran a Somoza a Pinochet
as long as you say U.S.A. U.S.A.
and train your troops at the School of the Americas
with thus we trust you’ll send your precious resources North
colossus in collision with platitudes
of democracy for an oligarchy of our national interests
bananas oil coltan what have you
the continuing main course in the neo or re
enforcement of the Monroe Doctrine a Manifest Destiny feast

She Made His Bed

Policies the C.I.A. put an end to Arbenz
then the continuing of political and covert immigration of might
makes right Reagan Rios and the ruling classes
history of the war on the poor
massacre of the Mayans up against the wall of summary executions
genocidaires genocide and the movement to el otro lado

Colossus and the crossing North
statutes of Executive orders for the work of “National Interests”
for U.S. there are no borders
but for her
she crosses over our policies into an Executive’s Suite
embedded in Trump’s Bedminster Flagship Golf Course she made his bed
washed his clothes
now with lines of her own she’s the minister of immigration justice

David Joined Goliath

David would have joined Goliath
in today’s world of win and all it costs
is a collaboration with a labyrinth to fools goals
uprights tearing down their virtues for futures
of gold chains to a materialist’s plane

Flying in jet streams to a pair-a-dice
that is a I land hierarchy that dispels
from a home court and a round table
of what comes around

The worst of the worst used as ad…
to invade and raid from sovereignty to privacy
First use
from Geronimo
“Bad Indian” for not giving U.S. his lands
to Saddam
“Bad Guy” for not giving U.S. his oil
the worst of the worst so well rehearsed
the crack in the Liberty Bell now rings with Search First

being , … personally invaded
nobody knew till she gave birth pregnant now the dragnet
