NO PEACEFUL TRANSITION

so now the bigot-in-chief claims a mandate... after seizing the presidency based on an archaic constitution designed to defend human bondage... and some of our leading liberal lights now counsel patience... besieged but highly paid labor leaders pledge to work with the billionaire maverick on trade... but it is too late for soothing words... neonazi forces are confident and are taking aim at the most vulnerable among us... emboldened by calls to build a wall on our southern border... an arbitrary line established by theft of mexican land... by derision of immigrant workers as rapists and criminals... undocumented and unafraid--thousands have come forward to proclaim their right to migrate--to defend human rights conferred by divine karmic right... the sexism and misogyny of the man who will never be my president have been gut-wrenching... and now he stands poised to appoint justices who could enshrine the right of rich white men to play god with the lives of black, brown, and poor women... as trump and putin conspire to partition the middle east, we must build a global anti-imperial resistance... we must stand strong for black, brown, trans, and queer lives... we must defend the right to abortion--and challenge corporate power root and branch--prefiguring our future while building class power in the present... the stakes are too high for a peaceful transition... we will disrupt trump's coronation--we will grind his parade to a halt--demanding education not incarceration--demanding money for universal health care instead of war... and we will deepen the bonds of solidarity and mutual aid--the sustaining roots our communities will need to survive... trump represents class war on an epic scale... and a regurgitation of the worst of our world's most satanic ideological sewage... no peaceful transition... we will build resistance... no peaceful transition... we will transform this sick social system

CATACLYSM: post-apocalyptic perspectives

two elections--16 years apart--where a candidate will take the presidency while losing the popular vote--an archaic constitution designed to defend slavery--facilitating modern day political crime--pollsters and pundits all proven wrong by an electorate sufficiently suffused in white supremacy and sexism--and tens of millions deeply unmoved to even participate in what felt like political farce--a billionaire bigot masquerading as the great white hope of the common man--feeding on the the rage, anxiety, and latent prejudice of those left behind by the neoliberal juggernaut--the proud banner of political revolution flew bravely just months ago--but amidst today's tears and psychic paralysis those shimmering hopes seem a distant memory--so its official--hate trumped love--and the most unhinged major party campaign for the white house in modern history stands vindicated--only time will tell how the incoherent components of trump's reactionary agenda will be resolved--slashing taxes for the one percent can only bring carnage to social programs--renewed military build-up may fuel emergent anti-imperial consciousness--we face four years of defensive battles and the threat that the far-right will terrorize muslims, refugees, queers and trans--will the movement for black lives be branded a terrorist threat--will all the pipelines be built over the dead bodies of valiant indigenous defenders of our sacred mother earth--not my president millions cry--protests exploding night after night--but without building power--we will scream in vain--absorbing this defeat is painful and cruel--electoral anxiety becomes apocalyptic depression--the nihilist temptation is visceral and real--we need to breath deep--we need to rebuild--let red and black unite--emboldened by brown yellow and green--unfurl the flags of revolution--stand strong and seek solutions--we face a hard road--we face a proto-fascist horde--but people of conscience are the majority and our voices must be heard--our system is sick--our politics are rigged--stand strong for democracy--rebuild and rejig--last tuesday was a cataclysm--stoked with violent consequence--like the phoenix we must rise--emboldened by karmic consciousness--evolve or die trying--revolt or live lying--from evolution to revolution--nucomintern baby--a cosmic solution >>>> --BYPO PHOENIX c) 2016

LAS RAICES DE LA ESPERANZA

queremos la justicia
no la poli-migra
gritamos si se puede
dicen no se pudo

nuestras historias
son nuestras victorias
el poder de l'amor
es mas que lo de odio

queremos la justicia
nos dan arizona
queremos la reforma
justa y humana
su idea de reforma
se abusa la idioma

raices inmigrantes
derechos inmigrantes
no somos delinquentes
trabajadores son gigantes
dormiendo por el momento
la esperanza esta surgiendo
de raices poderosas
rayando al cielo marveilloso

justicia y democracia
no puede esperar
poder no entiende
los que no marchar

la lucha obrera
no tiene fronteras
las palabras de la tierra
dicen si se puede
para siempre
ganaremos esta lucha
questa lo que cueste


paz amor y revolucion
resistencia y transformacion
raices inmigrantes
derechos inmigrantes
justicia por todo el mundo
es la solucion de nuestra gente

Georgetown Psych Ward

Overcome with gratitude I write and ponder the many blessings of madness Stuck on this ward marooned with pirates, explorers, and uncut genius I am rooted in the moments and little things that heal All praise the healing hands of anti-psychosis Armies of karma arise in cosmic unity Brewing vats of wildfire from starbursts millions of years and eons apart Cersei holds the throne but afar the good bastard Jon dreams of a better north Dragonfire in Westeros comparable to the burning pain of losing so gravely Suicide the architect of devestation claims too many Remember Lord Hess of loving heart who was taken too soon Dear Andre is with us still Lay hands on those you love and build up tolerance to karmic reactions These are scattered words But that is why I am enclosed in the Georgetown psych ward Dreaming of peace--breathing love--and yearning for revolution BYPO PHOENIX c 2016

ART TRUMPS HATE

This is an open call to artists and performers across the country to use the time before the coming presidential election to campaign vigorously for a nation where all immigrants are welcome, where Islam is respected, where LGBTQ rights advance, where black lives matter, where women's power grows, and where working people reclaim the wealth we have created for the criminal one percent. Now is the time to ensure that Donald Trump is exposed as the neo-fascist lunatic he is--to press Hillary Clinton to uphold the Democratic Party platform that Bernie Sanders and the movement behind him did so much to create--to ensure that Jill Stein of the Green Party has a voice in the debate. These are challenging times. For those of who gave time,money, and energy to the Sanders' campaign, now is the time to train our fire at the grotesquely right-wing bigotry and war mongering that suffuse the Republican Party. We need massive voter turnout to ensure that Trump and his party lose overwhelmingly. We should call on leaders in all levels of government to declare election day a holiday, so that everyone who wants to vote can. Election days are holidays in most of the industrialized world. Its time for the United States to move towards the 22nd century-- not lurch back into the horror of war, racism, and economic implosion that characterized the 1930's. If you are interested in brainstorming about this, post a comment here or email me at bypo.evolve@gmail.com More to come. Seize the moment. Tell Trump that we won't go back...
