Sustenance

Hunger

drove me to

seek sustenance

at Safeway.  Desperately I searched

for food without fillers not born in a lab

for food without pesticide tainting its skin

for food without chemical colors mixed in

for food not injected, infected or foul

for food not obtained through abuse of the wild

When suddenly from deep inside my soul

a deafening tone rose and took control

my body shook as i scremaed and yelled

that the food in the store was not fit to sell

Interdependence is against the law-period!

Poor People on a Poor Planet - Climate Change and Poverty & the Death of Shannon Marie Bigley

i can’t exactly describe the sound of an aluminum walker being crushed by a Dept of Public Works (DPW) truck - but its a special sound of material violence unlike any other- with each crunch-clap - another unhoused disabled life is metaphorically and actually dismantled, while the truck continues to chew like a dog on a bone- our precious momentos, pictures, medicine and lives are now reduced to trash and our own bodies , no longer awarded the respect of being considered humans swept, cleaned up, removed..

So Much Violence

As a kid, I found difficulty finding logic in why people committed brutal acts of violence and the motivation behind the crimes. From ordinary citizens to law enforcement the “jones” for violence and death has become the frightening norm for today’s way of life in our “sodom and gomorrah” -like country.
