Re: Re: Art/Act: Twig of poetree in progress + Welcome All New Members :)

Dear All,
Very cool, thanx for all the participatiion, et al! It’s said that
art has no words, it’s of the eye, and yours are, as is your site,
work, life, vision. I thought I’d allow everyone a view of my
latest poem in its evolution, so, below is the fourth draft; and
every draft after will be posted in this thread- ’til the final one.
 
Stark’s
Hungerstrike against Iraqi War funding
Going strong, with Medea and Codepink.
"No more funds for war and occupation,
"We…" need healthcare and education".
"12 billion wasted on this war a month,
That’s $5000. every second"; trillions
Your grandkids will pay higher taxes for
Their whole lives! Supplemental war
Bill will be voted on in a few days,
Bush wants another 184 million for it,
An unnecessary one, they hope to make
"Unending", Kofi Annan called "illegal";
McCain says, "it may last a 100 years"-
Don’t let remocrats rob you, your kids,
Grandkids of their livlihoods, stop war
Funding, stop the war, now, bring our
Troops home; if you support them. Liz
Yelled across the street, "time to go",
Then cops arrested her, we were going
Home, it didn’t matter, more police
Crime against free speech. Unlike the
Cries of 10 year old boys not let out of
Fallujah with their families so the next
2 generations of Iraqi men can be killed
Now, "We,…" will not be silenced.
They can’t silence the global thundering
Cry for justice, "We, the people…"
Won’t let them; tell Congress we want our
Families home. Stop the war, now!
 
unkaliedescopic
eye needled, rich can’t
go through to heaven.
there, surrounded,
life, at ease, sees me.
i see, feel welcome.
an unneedles eye asks why?
 
Notes for revisions: ‘Stark’s’ is its own twig, startb another one
with the notes below. Make twice the size; timeframed events
separated alittle, vigil demonstrations, State Dept. demonstrations,
demonstrations in Congress, presence at hearings; include prop1.org
27 year vigil against nuclear weapons, etc., by Thomas and
Concepcion of Wash., D.C., Peacehouse, in front of the Whitehouse,
if can; also, partial victory with the House voting it down, and now
onto the Senate, with the Senate passing it, tragically; put .org on
groups names in poem (Codepinkalert.org, Prop1.org); include more
testimony by Iraqi War Vets against the war, than you’ve here, you
witnessed in Rayburn building: "What makes the green grass grow",
the drill Sgt. asks, and "blood, blood, blood", is the required
answer. Routinely received orders, on point, "any observer be fired
upon", including anyone on a cell phone, onlookers, etc.. "For the
longest there was no tracking and intelligence operations on the
Syrian/Iraqi border, etc., contributing to thousands of coalition
troops deaths".- etc..
Keys
Fathomless, oceans
Murk, unrevealed, and my water,
Know, our day is done.
(possibly half of a couplet of haiku, after write larger twig)
 
Keys Way
To the Keys (another language), baby blue to pastel gray, immobile
(or, with a sense of immobility) Michaelangelos fill a sun trying to
sky. More, taller, palms guide (another term) the highway.
Miamiscape (another name for, origin, and/or o. language). Just
behind us (now), purple hue adieu. Stoic, now, low laying (another
word), undance, (with) illumined. Past Cutter Reef, Miami South,
purple (another) hazed (meeting) water shine; eye leaning right
(another language, French), (all) grassland giving way, marsh, ocean
(a.l.). (skipping through, part of totality, a.l.) Our world,
impermanent, begins to pale�. Key Largo, (keys curl out right,
a.l.). Islamorada, massive darkness of ocean, after all. (finding
origins of Miami, a.l. of origin, another name for) (possible view
from strato, ionospere, or space allows for realistic perspective of
universe stalking us, relation to earlier stepping stones, et al,
skipping like a stone) (gulf side, going out, on atlantic side
returning) Left hustle, though, not riders bustle, behind (comment
on worldview due to vs. nature`s balance, etc., possibly vs. theme
already in poem). Feeling oceans depth, breath is real, et al.
A poems line comes to mind 🙂 "…and death (murder) shall have no
dominion…", Dylan Thomas. Wrote this twig of poetree in a similar
style 🙂
 
C’est La Unvie
A million monarchs lie dead, though,
No less sociological programming of
Upper-middle to rich classes with
Decadence, affluence, inclusion, is.
No less societal determination of
Middle to lower, being excluded by
Division and conquering, privation.
Yet, they, on wing no more, still fly
In our spirit’s eye, heal humanities’
Heart. While their silent cry echoes
The 33,000 species extinct each year,
A rate not seen since the last ice age
Ensued; does it move you?
Does your curiosity ask why?
Will you, on this 33rd Earth Day, allow
A tear for all life’s fallen? Consider
The losses economic apartheid incurs,
Mirrored by the divide human-centricity
Has levied? Our underlying duplicitous
Disregard for life, greed and oil fueled,
Won’t abate for our existence, will you?
( For the beautiful butterflies, et tu, mon amis; written one and a
half years before the 33rd. )
