Happy birthday Lew wherever you are! Peace and love.

The True Rebel never advertises it ,
He prefers his joy to missionary work....
Church is Bureaucracy,
no more interesting than any post office.
Religion is Revelation
all the wonder of all the Planets striking
all your Only Mind.
Guard the Mysteries!
Constantly reveal them!

On the other side of anger,
on the other side of ridicule and sarcasm,
beyond words:

an opening, a field
and in the center of the field
sitting on a stone:

a great sad beast
his head in his hands
weeping

for all of us.

Poets Responding

Our brother, friend, maestro, and founder of Poets Responding to SB 1070 has gone home to the ancestros. A warrior to the end, he went to the other side with much courage and dignity. This is a great loss for our poet and social justice community and we have pledged to continue on with his (our) work, and his legacy!

Rest in poetry, peace, and power: Francisco X. Alarcon, Presente!

Love and blessings to his familia.

"I'll take articles out of newspapers, poems I've written, pieces of other people's books, and put them all into this little warehouse - this container of information - and then hit the random button and it'll randomize everything and I'll get reams of pages back out with interesting ideas," David Bowie talks about his writing techniques and influence by William S. Burroughs' cut-up technique. From THE WEEK via BBC News
