Let your entire body be the pen with which your poetry is elaborated.
Thirty thousand days—what will you do?
My life revolves around the sun.
Strength is for the ready not the already.
It might seem a contradiction, but stagnancy cannot be maintained.
Sly under the radar.
Sun days are more important than Sundays.
In an age of absurd degrees of globalization, regionalism is revolutionary.
Magic comes from the wandering not the wand.
First time for everything or everything for the first time? Live in the always unknown and live always free.
They were here, and they sowed seeds; they did not sow immanent and imminent destruction.
Me falls apart sometimes and becomes us.
You don’t bring out the poet in me—you bring out the poetry that is you.
I would be happy to eat your dust but the whole world is paved. And I won’t be able to eat your dust when the whole world is soil. #permaculturesaveus
They escaped the violence against them to become the violence that is them.
Boom-bust is as false a rhythm to ascribe deterministically to economics as it is a necessary cycle of relationships that flourish and die in one season. The belief and acting on the belief that romantic relationships that cease then are fated to schism irretreivably is a grave deterrent to the people realizing the full potential of dynamic enduring relationships and seeking to grow them, without a necessary and expected catastrophe at the end.
Be a vector or be a victim. Running is the only way to keep standing. #nomadism
Jesus is a state not the state.
I get my indigenous skin from my mother, but I get my indigenous love from my father.
If you need their approval you do not need them.
If I was mayor of Rome the coliseum would be given to architects and artists to fuse a new creation. Ruins of ancient civilizations—unlike natural places—become our ruin if we leave them be merely in reverence and to fool ourselves that our own times are not special. The dead can roam in our vital spaces, but we cannot all the dead spaces to roam. The past is too often stuck in us…
The gap between life experiences and life experience.
The fist that travels far gains more momentum for the final swing. Go after your friend’s enemies and see that that they go after yours. To let our struggles be individualized is to ask the enemy to swing at us.
We should never allow a war of attrition to be imposed on us, nor should we ever impose a war of attrition on anyone else. That loss is greater than the sum of its gains. I would rather play soccer in no-man’s land.
You can’t avoid the shadowy elements of society by living in the shadows. You receive the worst they have to offer by enduring them to the denial of your own living.
Don’t make the mistake of confusing an understanding of the past with an understanding of the future.
Delaying justice in the world is a chief injustice against it.
Revolting is insane and choosing not to revolt is insane. There is no room left for sanity in the war against the world.
Not being asleep is how we will keep these dreams alive.
Saving the Earth is saving yourself just spelled differently.
Humans—the creators of tautologies that exclude the whole of everything including themselves.
Capitalism hasn’t destroyed people any less quickly than it has destroyed the land. Zombies are a state of mindlessness.
Humans are the deadliest disease this planet has ever seen.
Also, the map is not their territory.
Books are a product of the storage-minded people who started the choosing of property over people—and property over land. Humans have chosen property over land. A failed concept that will determine a failed species. We who see this must cry ever louder: ¡Tierra y Libertad!
They don’t make many like you, they don’t make any like you, they don’t make. You make. You make any. You make many. You make you.
And on the fourth solstice…
I’m an anarchist—rules are kindling for my fire.
Death is the release of force while dying is the capturing and stagnating of force. Language has obfuscated the unimaginable distance between these quite distinct Two—a cage, and then it’s utter destruction, posed next to each other as if they were in league. Death doesn’t need to end in rubble if the living choose not to build walls to begin with.
Life and death are not subject to normalization whereas dying is. We can choose to wax and wane as the moon or burn hotter yet hotter as the sun.
If you keep finding yourself lost over and over again, try looking under.
Revolutionary things have a way of coming full circle. The orbit returns to be around vitality in place of falsifying structures as it is in times of decadence.
Proverbs that keep you in place are better described as pro-nouns. The literate lords pushing them on the illiterate peasants. Now the literate peasants force-feeding themselves.
Possessions are the lost grasp of relations.
Technology is the sucking of functions out of our bodies and transferring it into metallics.
It’s not alienation it’s alien individualization.
I am quite loud you just don’t have the ears for it. And therefore I am quiet loud.
If it’s in your grasp, release it.
