Very cool, thanx for all the participation, 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 are drafts; and
every draft after will be posted in this thread- ’til the final ones.
An echoing inward, within,
Unbeckoning one, unheard,
Unfelt, unknowable, unsung,
Through which only one and
A universe can unsing co-creation being,
Awakening, without, without.
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!
I don’t suffer, or, suffer from,
Eurocentrism, northern malaise;
Nor, academia, a blood disease.
eye needled, rich can’t
go through to heaven.
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..
Murk, unrevealed, and my water,
Know, our day is done.
(possibly half of a couplet of haiku, after write larger twig)
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 60 th: Birth of Israel, and Al Nakba, mournful
Remembrance of atrocities in Palestine; you and I.
Two sides of the same coin? Spoils of war, what’s
Left for.., after all has been..? Coin of the realm,
The destruction, murder that made it, and sides.
At 16 I said USSR and USA were these sides, racing
Towards each other, the closer they got, the more
Alike…, exigency replacing humanity, globally;
They’re them in the Middle East, a mix of la
Machine, beast, et al; extinction incarnate.
Why there won’t be anything but their peacing on
Each other, til they can war, waring pays 10 times
More and they broke the sky; as everybody knows?!
They just have to keep the convolutions show going
Long enough, deluding enough, so, you don’t be
Change evolution needs; to stop the extermination
Of humanity they dictate. When 100 million are
Dying annually from unnatural disasters, instead
Of 10, when war over food, water, is more common,
And only military rules everywhere; peace will be
A notion, like love conquering all, dwindling moms
Tell kids, only when dads aren’t around. Then,
Humanity will be dead, after that, human species,
Large mammals extinct. Why, `cause you believed
Their cons now, like sides existing, to destroy,
Kill, is profit, pleasure, etc.. If they wanted
Peace, there would be. Why do the convolutions lies
Fly, `cause you let them. The life is indivisible,
Divide and conquer only works on the divided. Be.
Ass backwards, just the way the terrible twos,
Bipolar axi, remocrat/totalitarian conspiracy
Like it. The gloves, their collaborators,
Dempublicans, socialists, making humanities
Extermination now, extinction later, a reality.
Supposedly, they’re diametrically opposed,
While they collaborate in genocides, etc.. War
On every non-remocrat male, from middle
Class to poor, you must be 1 side, or the other;
If you’re not them, you’re enemy. In capitalist
Societies, totalitarians play a supporting role,
As "money" plays in totalitarians ones; the ol’
Cold war fix is still in. Their rabid militarists
Jaws locked on, humanity can’t exist until
They’re gone. Pedocide programs, remocrats
Pride and joy, one, where military sexually
Abuse kids with potential, who they deem
Won’t grow up to be remocrat; target group,
White boys- destroy their competition before
They become it, and adults. All conspiracies
Collaborate with them to varying degrees,
Manufacturing rule by most nazi conspiracy;
And nazism as way of life. We, the people,
Shouldn’t grind up the seeds. How did this
Happen, by almost all embracing their
Devolutionary direction, the corporate
Structures, la machines, convolution. Only
Way to change that, is to change everything,
Uplifting all life, devaluing conspiracy in
Everyway, every moment, everyday; feeling.
Thinking through their bricks of illusions,
That make their walls of delusions, in their
Mental cells, their personal hell; human,
Being alival, not `la machines’ survival- now.
A poems line comes to mind 🙂 "…and death (murder) shall have no
dominion…", Dylan Thomas. Wrote this twig of poetree in a similar
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. )
