Eden in LA is ok. Haven't heard from my brother.
And here in the NW it looks like this:
Got nothing to say about current events. Oil has contributed to global warming which causes the droughts and crazy weather patterns and hence fires and destruction.
This child spoke truth to power.
My friend Micha figured out how much fossil fuel it took to fly her to Greece and back. She was appalled. She wants to make art that doesn't include electronics because of components made with harmful chemicals and minerals. I suggested rocks and fallen trees and leaves. Stonehenge has lasted for a while and doesn't pollute, as far as I know.
California is burning and al Baghdadi is dead
My daughter empties her fridge
no power in San Rafael
no school tomorrow
no work because the door combination is hard wired
gas pumps are dark
she has a plan
two cat carriers
the freeway is nearby
a man I know
taught to track and kill a deer
by his uncle on the rez
took his first when he was 14
still a boy
when he got back to the house
he danced and laughed
proud of himself
his uncle slapped him
never rejoice when you take a life
the deer offered herself to you
so you might have food for the winter
today while men in a room watched
hundreds of miles from the tunnel filled with
dogs and soldiers
a man took his life and the lives of three children
our president described in great detail
'crying, screaming, cowardly'
'body parts identified by DNA'
'great' 'very bad' ' hatred'
where is uncle to slap him
teach him to take life, any life
is not honorable
no matter how necessary it may seem
we are all capable of murder
in our hearts
this will not stop ill will
this will not stop the illness of greed
my daughter lights candles
in her living room
her son is a few blocks away with his girlfriend
if they need to leave
they are ready
as she texted me-
“We're here in the dark,
waiting for the apocalypse.”
