  1. see comment from me on bigbridge
    which is really getting bery big
    some of us cannot get big on our own
    so we join together as a lubricant
    for success

    Namaste,

  2. SURVIVAL SONG

    This poem is for you Irwin Altman
    And for Ed “Foots” Lipman too
    For every poet who ever paced the cell blocks
    Of San Quentin, Folsom, Attica, and Neil Island
    Or gave his life in the people’s struggle
    Of Chile, Cuba or Nicaragua

    This poem is for those who walk the
    Dream of freedom with guerilla visions
    In their hearts and eyes

    This poem is for those who gave their lifeblood
    To wash the streets free of oppression
    For those who rest in heroic and not so heroic graves
    In the struggle for human dignity

    Poet of blue denim jacket
    Mechanic of whispering trees
    Walking the execution yard
    Over the sleepy tresses of rain
    The imaginary and not so imaginary
    Shattering of the skull

    I sit here in my personal prison zoo
    Thinking of long unwritten poems
    Thinking of young boys who have fought the real war
    Of grieving mothers and widows
    Thinking of young girls with color-book eyes
    Young women in black suspender belts
    And knee high leather boots
    Thinking of how the words come to late
    And never say enough
    Knowing that in the Buddha Temple of life
    All things must die
    Knowing there is no survival
    No tarot cards horoscopes or incantations
    To being back the dead

    I walk the midnight supermarket of death
    Thinking of Lorca and that long dirt road
    Thinking of the execution wall the hangman’s noose
    Ethnic cleansing ovens and genocide
    Knowing there is a strange code to this language
    We are addicted too

    As Gene Fowler pointed out to me
    ”Evil spelled backwards is live.”
    Being made into a State automated robot is evil
    But dying can never be evil
    For it’s in its whole the disintegration
    The Bacterial feeding which in turn
    Is a live process

    And so the fight goes on and must go on
    Until every street has been cleared of assassins
    Until every new born is encircled in a poem
    The vision remains even as we retreat
    Into the depths of our being
    Listening to the blood beat solid against the hands
    Knowing there are secrets in the bones
    That cannot be denied or sold out
    To the whims of others
    Sleep well my brother
    Only the flesh is gone
    Your strength lives on in those who dared
    To reach out and kiss the sun
