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...
