yr highness
what if yours is a revolutionary song that represents these thousand flowers blooming and we can look up at you all christ-eyed, skeletal with a green-screen or maybe a thorned god with ashen hooves? it’s mad that there could be a generation that finally sees all nation-states as bastard children. it’s mad that there could…
An Arch Why
When hammer falls, and nail is driven deep in vein, piercing those with hands to heaven, a raging flow of protest stirs, and the dam’s crack promises an empire’s dust. Tyrants fear, as the heart reclaims fallen blood its own, never again owed or again stolen, never to be the red in crime scene canvas,…
Bullshit Jobs and the End of Work (As We Know It)
A little over 100 years since anarchists, socialists, communists, libertarians, and radical unionists in the so-called united states successfully won the long, difficult, and bloody battle for the eight hour workday, we are still overworked and underpaid despite technological advancements necessitating less and less labor to maintain the same quality of life. To quote Bertrand…
Isn’t Being Doomed the Whole Point?
We would be miserable if we were happy. When we’re not glowing like demons we’re dull. Dull with no halos or self-centered spotlights On us like sniper dots. If it were easy and nothing could haunt us And everyone fell into each other’s arms And slept in the hay like celestial lovers, That would be…
Russian Government’s Far-Right Friends
Some of the leaders of the Russian far-right are close friends with the authorities of the Russian state; some have been sitting inside the offices for a long time. These far-right friends are a very important resource. In the entire political arena of the past and present, the leadership of Russia has valued them the…
Daugters of the American Revolution
Two women recently described my grandfather in the following stark language: “He was a monster.” My mother drapes herself in a denial she thinks is wisdom. My mother told me to see the good–see the full person. Well I see the whole person. And I see the man who shook my aunt until she dropped…
Creatio Ex Nihilo

Forged in Fire
Tempered, as steel, our bonds are set The pressure builds On a horizon infected with death We walk forward Like the flickers of light That follow the spiral To the center of it all Falling in, we streak the sky Stretched by the inhumanity Demanded of our world And we hold tight Deep are the…
We have only four years to prevent a fascist USA: Here’s what we need to do now
Trump lost. Last weekend we celebrated the electoral defeat of a US president undeniably behaving as an openly fascist dictator. Yet we must remember that elections are for choosing the targets of our political pressure, not for choosing our saviors. Only we the people, not the president-elect, can meaningfully bring that pressure to bear. The…

Excuse me – –             in which aisle                         do I find                         bootstraps             for the                         mentally                                     exhausted?

No TERFS, No Patriarchy
When the temptation arises To discount one’s contributions to equality  Based solely on what might be between one’s legs Perhaps best not to do so Just because some humans have genitalia that dangle Grotesquely and profanely for all to see And other humans have secret gardens hidden from sight Means nothing in regard to misogyny;…
Malison Against Tyrants, Fascists, and Enslavers
Rise up! Powers of the Abyss!  I call forth the Abominations of Desolation—  Powers of Darkness, I summon Thee:  Entangle the Oppressors—  Serpents of Darkness, I summon Thee:  Fill the Oppressors with Venom—  May their every breath be laboured, that they may cease to breathe;  May their sustenance be Foul Poisons, that they may cease…

Another Lost Comrade
Another death, Another dearly departed friend, Another memory where a comrade once stood. Another breath, When will it end? Why I’m still here, I’ve never understood. Why this time? Lack of healthcare? Overdose? Hate crime? Refusal to share? Beaten by police? Choked or shot? Or maybe just left In prison to rot? The questions dance…
Untitled I
Brown uniforms are real. Rifles are real. Soldiers are a social fiction. Blue uniforms exist and so do their guns. Policemen, my brothers and sisters, are a social fiction. So many primitive ways to keep us in check. Or is that too Budddhistic a view for you? Building a new world in the shell of the old Begins in your head. If you’re…
Two Limericks
As our flag was raised up the mast A feeling of hope at long last Arose in my breast Only to be suppressed As the half-way point was surpassed Of Hitler, one thing can be said: He raised the bar high over head Antifascists are sure To remain premature Til six million and one are…
The Myth of the Private Sector, Part I: Why Big-Small and Vertical-Horizontal Trumps “Public-Private”
Today (Oct. 28) Rachel McKinney, a friend who works as professor of philosophy, complained on Twitter that she was trying to create a midterm exam and “blackboard is complete fucking garbage. No intuitive way to break up questions into sections, can’t give instructions for specific sections, can’t modulate to require answers for e.g. 10 of…
