Dreams of Insurrection

you dream of insurrection, bodies, insurrections of the flesh -
on the edge, waiting for others, from the other, of the order of
the other, of ourselves, splintered against those who are not
for us are against us, land of insurrection, land of hostile
rebellion, insurrection bears thee well, thrive against any foul
regime, knocks in the night, populations at risk, kicks in the
head, vile denunciations, knocks on the door in the middle of
the night, in any stormy afternoon, in any sunny morning

knocks on the door
knocks in the middle of the night
knocks on the head what fun
kicks on the door
kicks on the door in the night in the day
kicks on the head in the belly what fun
what fun is so hard work
smashing heads is so hard work


First they came for the Socialists,
and I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists,
and I did not speak out
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak for me.

- Pastor Niemoller

{one of many versions of the quote]

WE WERE of desperation

*/I operate upon myself. I swallow my own mind/*
*/each moment Ouroboros in sheaves, dynamics/*
*/each phrase already devoured, my throat/*
*/swallowed my throat, my words useless rags/*
*/shoved into me, distended, splayed, my speech/*
*/you've heard it already, each moment curled/*
*/into, strange attractors, caressed, collapsed/*
*/; what i have to say is what i've always said/*

WE WERE here and there and now we're here
WE WERE discussing the bones of the text
WE WERE told the townpeople don't like us
WE WERE up for 38 hours, now playing clarinet to
WE WERE taken on a skiff to an island
WE WERE asking the king and queen of birds
WE WERE radio radio radio by the side of the pond
WE WERE hearing the moans, we were listening
WE WERE with electric-antenna-azure / the landscape
WE WERE radio radio radio
WE WERE never stopped, nothing stopped us, not even hell
WE WERE going to do that when
WE WERE traveling at 70 mph, well below the speed limit,
WE WERE trying to sleep, i've got bites and bytes, the travels.

WE WERE so we would converse seriously because if were blind
