KING OF INK

You grind like a monster You move like a king You feed me and heal me You inspire me to think   I feel my psyche I feel it meld with yours I feel this fire burn I crave your erotic pulse   Savage intensity Embodied  by prophetic tattoos Your […]

POLAROID HIEROGLYPHICS

Scattershot photo-ops Grip my mind Pierce my heart   Black beauty and faith rise transcendent Rivers of injustice are never-ending   Light and shadow interweave Crafting a sacred tapestry Tattoos writhe with tantric energy Projecting emphatic ecstasy Projecting prophetic potency   Pain and joy Hope and pride Manifesting before my […]

EMPIRE AND ITS ANTIDOTE

This poem is inspired by the painting ‘Fighting Monsters’ by Christopher G. Kempton   Our world is on fire And we are watching  Watching this lethal dance with apocalypse   Red and black Marks of war Splattered paint Marking Ares’ door   Our world is on a precipice A portal […]

INFINITE GRACE

In a world at war We need infinite grace We must sustain our faith That this system can be replaced   In this intricate dance I see beauty and pride We conjure a kaleidoscope Illuminating deep inside   Arms exquisite and interlocked Legs powerfully flexed Evoke my adoration Commanding boundless […]

ANGEL IN A HALF SHIRT

You take the stage with fire and technicolor flair Your body conducts tantric energy leaving the boys to stop and stare We sync up our psychic powers inspiring our neurons to become self-aware I imagine a hard house dance floor where you stomp and grind through neon glare   You […]

SACRED WITCHCRAFT

The river black and matte like rubber urges me to think of the past Oceans of crime and centuries of grime dismembered by our magic at last   Nations of Black bodies ensnared by other Africans Sold as chattel to avaricious conquistadors and mercantilists The river bleeds red in memory […]

NINJA EROTIC

Fractals of energy surge through your armor You are ninja erotic—you are agents of karma From our diasporas we conjure an anti-colonial madonna We emulate the buddha seeking sacred dharma   Your bodies are chiseled like samurai statues Your sex presence sizzles as sin melds with virtue We need communities […]

POSEIDON

A storm is coming together—a storm of emancipation We will break the interlocking chains of oppression and exploitation You lend your oceanic power to this atmospheric reverberation From frigid deep blue depths arises an armada of liberation   Your energy is supersonic—hypnotic and erotic Your torso summons a force both […]

CYBERPUNK BORICUA

Your body is etched like sacred stone—inspiring transpiring but never alone…our arms embrace i hold you close—angels arise from the ashes as ancestral ghosts… You focus your psyche on the quest for connection—you are a pyromuse and my queer resurrection…you edit digitized signals with your potent intuition—I amplify your mind […]

PLATONIC LUST

You inspire me and rewire me with the subtle chemistry of your artistry… You are a muse and co-conspirator in the project of making revolution sexy… I see you and I think of all of the moments since we first met in the wake of the looming proto-fascist fiasco… These […]

TRIPTYCH OF SALVATION

Lips combine while souls rewire Pleasure molds a sacred pyre Tantric power deep inside Writhes and climbs right up the spine   Leather bound and heaven sent This triptych manifests as sacrament The sacred dance of beautiful men Erotic power fused with manic zen   We celebrate bodies in every […]

BARRICADE FREAKS

we are barricade freaks rocking prada in the street—we style our rage in platinum shades shining strong and rolling deep…the sacred healing we seek amplifies our quest for psychic peace—our erotic tectonics seduce the commanders of our dreadnought fleet…as barricade freaks we charge ferociously into the streets—we dodge rubber bullets […]

GLOBALIZE

before we had a globalized system, we had globalized energy:  fires of wood or wax to which we made sacred offerings of rare shells, silver, or gold…before we had a world economy or planetary pandemics, we drew life and sustenance from the same sun and moon–we saw our fates and […]

ANARCHIST REVELATION: the evolution of psychospiritual praxis

for millennia our species has lived on this earth—always molded by the conditions into which we were birthed…we have lived as hunter-gatherers, as serfs, and as slaves—we have paid homage to haughty kings burried in titanic holy graves…our system has been ripe for transformation for more than a century—but it […]

PERP WALK

its indictment monday and heads are rolling—its a perp walk of the privileged and our resistance is growing…we are fighting for regime change here at home—we are fighting for a future that justice and karma will condone…manafort is going down—flynn was booted out in disgrace…but we need more than the […]

VIPER VIRUS: the matrix of evolution

infinitesimal but potent they control our minds—training nerves and synapses to fire deep inside…a toxic virus has arisen laced with systemic crime—distorting our collaborative nature and reenacting the lord of the flies…we are ruled by heartless robber barons—skilled only in legalized theft…their souls are sickly and barren—they are steering us […]

THE KALEIDOSCOPE OF RESISTANCE

rebels arise from every corner of our country–demanding justice for immigrants–decrying hate and bigotry…amidst this kaleidoscope of resistance we must create space to strategize–find time to dig deeper–find new ways to organize…too many on the left view dc as a stage–a place for parades that ignore the disenfranchised residents of […]

PROPHECY: anthem of resistance

amidst the specter of apocalypse–resistance is seething…people are moving–the planet is breathing… prophets of old meet prophets of rage…flames of rebellion challenge forces of hate… abrahamic creeds meet koranic texts–addicting us to speed–hypnotized by breath… the stakes are ferociously high–our place on earth is at stake…we must live to fight […]

AGENTS OF KARMA

In the beginning was the word And the word was death Or maybe life or death to all life And ADAMA was born Toy soldier of divine clay Neither man nor woman just fine in its way ADAMA was cleaved in two by fire Lightning strike from Zeus on high […]
