with each passing day the crisis at the top of U.S. society grows more toxic...the satanic cabal occupying the nation's capital is held in check only by our resistance and its tide-like impact on the judicial and congressional wings of power...we are saying NO day after day to the outrageous shock doctrine running wild...but as a movement we need to create space to envision the world we want--we need to define our YES--our zygote of utopia...anarchist and socialist--black latinx and indigenous...trans and queer uniting to build a liberated future--radical imagination is emerging from every pore of our polity...while our so-called opposition party flails--clinging desperately to a failed neoliberal agenda...we build community and deepen relationships that are the foundation of transformative organizing...a zygote is a half-life striving to become whole--a utopia is a vision of an egalitarian future...we need both and we need them now...revolutionary transformation is necessary to uproot the destructive human forces causing climate change--to stop the state-sanctioned assault on black brown and indigenous bodies...the dialectical power of our emerging anarchist praxis is a potent antidote to the proto-fascist forces claiming the throne in babylon...we must summon all of our powers--paying homage to all of our gods and prophets...we must imagine the internal zygote--the living god waiting for karmic resurrection...let our utopian zygotes rise and fly--let our eyes open to the untapped creative energy housed in our minds...we have a world to win and nothing to lose but our chains...we can end this death spiral by building power and imagining a liberated future for our human tribe

NO JUSTICE NO PRIDE: a new movement for liberation takes shape

on june 10th 2017 dc threw down...trans and queer activists blockaded the pride parade after months of fruitless conversation with the gay elite...this is a movement moment--stonewall was an urban rebellion against homophobia and police oppression...its time to go back to our roots...with the unmentionable president in power, we can't afford to segregate and segment our movements... the movement for black lives rolled deep challenging incarceration, racist policing, and immigrant detention...the struggle continues...tonight i am wired and inspired--its a good place to be...manic zen is upon me and i send cosmic energy to trans and queer folk across our globe to take our liberation into our own hands...i believe that we will win--through solidarity rooted in a deep understanding of the intersectionality of oppression--and of the viscissitudes of capitalist society...on june 10th a flag was planted in the sand-- where this goes from here is in our movement's hands

UPROOTING PATRIARCHY: a revolutionary riff

as boys we are told not to cry--told to hold it in--until inner truth gives way to we grow we learn the rules of a patriarchal order--where sex is a commodity to be owned bought or stolen...not one of us is immune to this toxic refuse...we are raised to be masters--to covet and to use...emotions repressed produce rage turned inward--bringing strife and depression--polluting the waters of creation...through my black and queer eyes i see a path to liberation--we must rise against this system--we must strive for revolution...sculpted and tattoed--thugged out or in drag...we need a polylingual army--gay and straight--queer and trans...the assault of this system on our bodies and our minds--will take generations to repair and will take all the courage we can find...unite against patriarchy--against rape culture--against bigotry...our fly and sexy army can put capitalism in the dustbin of history

Wednesday, June 7, 2017


divergent tongues are sister rivers to the soul...converging and remolding--making sacred--making whole...of fractions and fractals--of imagined geometries...we envision human futures devoid of earthly misery...polylingual polymaths are the future of our tribe...harnessing disparate talents--dropping beats and looking fly...conjuring quantum computing--the dialectic magnified...reviving and rebooting human dignity strength and pride...the energies of our universe are in focus late at night...when bypo freaks and schizo daughters overdose on starlight...evolutionary theory is more than a guide to what came before...our minds evolve at light speed--craving insight--wanting more...our resistance is vibrant--stoking fires and driving deep...polylingual polymaths are evolving in the tyrant's keep

Sunday, May 28, 2017


we live in an era of profound cognitive dissonance...ruled by a gang of bigots, thugs, and habitual liars--we resist...rebelling against a looming fascist order...our social system is in a death spiral--the catastrophe of climate change and forced migration becomes more visceral with each passing season...we face the threat of new wars--while still mired in the toxic debris of old ones...the nepotistic ineptitude of 45 brings us close to an existential crisis...either we build power to transform this sick system--bringing regime change home at last...or the craven elites governing our polity will be the harbingers of certain death...there is still hope--and we have subterranean energy and magic on our side...but the clock is ticking--and the death spiral of delusional omnipotence haunts our global human tribe...

Wednesday, April 26, 2017


one hundred days of insanity bombast and bigotry...more than one hundred days of resistance--reaching deeper and summoning the best of the human spirit...the quasi-comic spectacle of proto-fascist corporate incompetence would be amusing if the stakes weren't so deathly high...war games in the middle east--saber rattling of atomic dimensions in east asia...tens of thousands converge for climate justice--led by front line communities and fiercely styled by a small legion of vibrant artists crafting flags banners and parachutes...may day will be another day without an immigrant--erecting a proud wall of resistance to the threatening tide of anti-immigrant xenophobia....organizing in the age of trump is an exercise in navigating contradictions...every day there is an urgent meeting or action--some new outrage...the fire of the moment is intense and palpable...but this is a marathon not a sprint--and we must care for ourselves, for our communities, and for those we love if we are to remain sane amidst this maelstrom...we are evolving a hive mind of resistance--a deeply rooted think tank of cosmic proportions...building power to transform by any means necessary--and through all available avenues...our tweets are public and our texts are encrypted...cops can raid our homes and find only a rough outline of the world we want to build--socialism, communism, it what you will--but the truth wears many masks and emerges through subterranean tunnels aspiring to make borders obsolete...we worship the sun--we see angels dance in the moonlight--and our hive mind drives deep building a capacity for social transformation of godlike dimensions

my eyes were first met by visions when i was 24...psychic angels connecting smoke and light--earth, body, and sky...floridly manic i flew through central park imagining myself as a primal hunter gatherer...i felt time slow then accelerate--i felt my power...i imagined a destiny beyond time--beyond the parameters of our earthly condition...i felt an all encompassing strength--both subterranean and cosmic--in every sinew of muscle along my spine...i knew there had to be other aspiring jedi among us but i didn't really know where to look...diagnosed two years and several arrests later as manic depressive i felt sudden kinship with many in my mother's mother harriet--dead by suicide before i was father's sister and a growing handful of my organizing and activism i found support--ways of channeling energy and insight into relationships and movement...we must inquire as a species about the double-edged character of psychosocial instability--about the reckoning with mental health and the demons of mental illness...if these beasts were only malignant pathology natural selection would have rooted them out generations ago...but the ailments carouse and multiply...psychiatry's bible--the diagnostic and statistical manual--grows fatter with every passing decade...and there is a documented host of phenomenally creative intelligent and inspired individuals who have had profound impact on our world while living with a diagnosis...i grow more and more convinced there is cosmic truth in most of our visions...the din of voices clamoring in the heads of those living with schizophrenia may be divine whispers guiding our troubled species towards greater connection with alternate realities...we are x-men--mutants arising to destroy the matrix...we are the freemen of dune working for the overthrow of our newly anointed and brown--queer and trans--claiming power and taking space...on reflection it occurs to me that all of our great prophets would be confined to psych wards or imprisoned if they were alive today...what but the seismic force of mania could convince a rational human that they had seen angels or gods who demanded that they speak their truths to the world...our understanding of the brain is still in its infancy...our species must evolve or it will die...we are faced with cataclysmic politics...our economic and social system is on a perilous collision course with the fundamental equilibria demanded by our planet...resistance is growing but the road ahead will be long and hard...psychosocial crisis--pervasive anxiety fear and depression--emanate from the crucible of our existential dillemna...breathe deep and meditate--find your power and copulate...let the flames of rebellion build hope pride and comradery in the face of a proto-nazi regime...i have travelled through chaos and despair--love and heartbreak--flirted with the menacing cliff of suicide...but i have always listened and learned...there are forces in our universe that can embolden us to build a future shaped by love--grounded in solidarity--and permeated by justice...breathe deep and feel the power of your inner god--breathe out and feel the energy connecting your mind to the sun moon and stars...we are not alone in this universe--and if we claim our social and spiritual power we can still win...its been thirteen years since my first manic episode and i am still processing its lessons...let us eradicate the stigma that keeps us from crafting solutions to our collective pain...time is short--we evolve and resist--reimagining revolution and rebuilding social power--if we fail there will be no future for our race on this earth...we need the visionary optimism of the will paired with the sober pessimism of the intellect...destiny awaits--and the revenge of history could be a new dawn of possibility for the human imagination
