Native Essence (Tienageratie Orenda)

Mi Tierra, my life
Before the Bush cloud took it,
Now the father sky,
Is dark upon my bleached face,
Mi sangre, the river,
Death from above,
The day of the dark Bush cloud

Los Angeles Diaspora

They didn’t kill enough of them,” ran through our skin and down our spines as I pushed one of the last bar stools back in place for the evening while the bartender and I locked eyes in fear of the thought of what kind of human mentality the statement was summoned from as the speaker sat at the bar and fixated on the television that was set to CNN.

Bill Viola: Self-Perfection

As artists we circle the drain of this place we collectively go to tap into for the chaotic and visual impetuses of our collective visual voice.
It is not surprising that along the way the signs up ahead read like Caution: deep spiritual valleys ahead, cause and effect for next (n) miles,
and no rest stops ahead. Continue reading

Rights, Rages and Drunks

Allow me to break this down into smaller pieces for those of us whose Hippocampus, synapses, and other major components
of the human limbic system are tightly wound to their Gluteus maximus. We live and make decisions constantly. Some people
drive drunk and kill. We live and make decisions, period. Continue reading

A Hate that runs Deep

Never have I been more angry at all politicians, Republican, RepubliCons, DemoCons, Democrat and Blue dogs (a democrat who lives in the financial closet) whose records continue to show the only interest in people who voted them into office is the compounded interest they have stolen and squandered from their constituents and millions of other Americans.

A letter to Mahmoud

Yet known only in my alabaster
Thought that I may ponder
My inner universe, amidst its
Shadows, tones, and humanity.
