“Loans from nations are not like loans from private men.” Anti-Federalist Paper, No. 2, We Have Been Told of Phantoms


foundation public and unceasing discord
a confusion of engagements

the conflicts of public engagement

have no foundations and their contemplations
have been erroneous we may wish fate obviated

An essay from Amiri Baraka’s “Bushwacked!”


He wasn’t a perfect man, but he was radical, prescient and sage. The fire that burnt in his belly for decades, roars to this day in millions of Americans. We’ve just got to believe we’re not fighting alone and stand up together — everyday.


Please share this with your favorite radical activist.

“I can lay out a field / a Spectrum / Where in / So what is spoken / is the living / the flesh / & its / Movement—” from Amiri Baraka’s “#19 Death Parallels”

Wire drags west then the department
built a very black of gauze and effect
and its proximity says “You this ain’t.”

A violent IC caveat duster
you are alcohol is the issue
but what time?

Intelligence community settlefield

When into the bleak Pacific
speaks a civil libation except over
