This is your fault! YOU! YOU! -Pause- Adults look up and inhale deeply, perhaps the mistake is realized perhaps […]

  • A VOTING Hippo Crit!

    A  VOTING Hippo Crit!

    Whatever you do… If you VOTE today do not use it as an excuse to be finished and stick your sticker proudly as if the goal is to wear a sticker on your lapel. If you VOTE today do not celebrate the act alone as if it’s a final chapter as if the book can […]

  • Screaming at Demons

    Screaming at Demons

    You’re screaming at animals you’re berating the non-beratables you’re inspiring violence because you’re jabbing the monster because you don’t think it’s a monster because you’re seeing yourself but it’s not you sitting there sitting there it’s not you sitting there upon the throne it’s not you in the great halls. You’re putting your faith and […]

  • What if I’m right

    I can be like the river I am like the river I have that available to me But who wants to be a river When you can be right? Certainly not me. We’ve had to make ourselves so small So we can understand what is not understandable. Zoom in. Zoom in. Zoom in. Smaller, smaller, […]

  • Reporting for Duty

    Reporting for duty Makes me a good man It’s not the duty It’s the reporting What a life Without a heart And without a feeling We are missing What a life We think we know And all of it without a heart And reaching And teaching Without a heart And reporting for duty Without a […]

  • I know you

    I know you. I’ve been in the deep, dark with you, I remember because you stayed at the entrance of the cave even though it was your idea to come explore in the first place. I know you. I’ve heard you brag. I’ve seen you get offended and be wrong and get offended again. I […]

    Dear terrified people with white skin

    Chill. (dear black people…thanks for introducing such a cool concept as “chillin’”) Chill. The institution is abuzz with activity, just listen to it hum. You can almost taste the creativity when you’re suckin’ on your thumb. Who is the first to proclaim they know who is the first to start the show who is the […]

  • What is Patriarchy

    I don’t understand this word the way you understand it. Speeding trains of indignation and righteousness blur by. This train doesn’t stop for me. I’m not sure this train stops for anyone. But who is driving and where did it come from? It’s so disgusting, like the foulest smell to hear and see excuses, I […]

  • Royales

    It’s the Royalty disease. A little known but widely held dysfunction that puts oneself above the rest, without regard for oneself. Like sawing off the connection to others to punish them. The ever present “I”. The damage and the healing of the world is in direct relation to our own experience of the ever present […]
