to the lighthouse that faithfully whispers the fishermen starboard
to the children whose days number more than every flower in europe
to the nations that charter their florid colonial highways
to the towers erected by contractors named after kings

god will bury you, nature will bury you

DSCN5946.JPG

to the gunmen who guard against all of the starving:
god will bury you, nature will bury you
to the screens and the radios where words turn into weapons:
god will bury you, nature will bury you
to the terrified rich man: god will bury you
to the killer of animals: nature will bury you

to the worship of justice, the reliance on reason, and the fire in your eyes…

god will bury you, nature will bury you, time will bury your bones unseen
total and absolute, infinite amplitude, till all the black is ripe and green
god will bury you, nature will bury you, time will bury your bones unseen
total and absolute, infinite amplitude, till all the black is ripe and green

and i’m not angry, i’m not sad, i’m just stating the fact
i’m not angry, i’m not sad, i’m just stating the fact
i’m not angry, i’m not sad, i’m just stating the fact that…

god will bury you, nature will bury you
god will bury you, nature will bury you
god will bury you, nature will bury you
god will bury you, nature will bury you

Seeming — The Burial (Madness & Extinction, 2014)

a nation in flames at the heat of our breathlessness
the churches collapse as i’m rewriting genesis
on the skin of your throat, divine and degenerate
that’s how i want you, that’s how i want you

DSCN3239.JPG

to bring me oblivion, make me unrecognized
render me savage, render me weaponized
i want you with lunacy, a head full of daffodils
a list of demands, and the bombing of capitols

DSCN3276.JPG

that’s how i want you: radically
upside down and over my knee
i can be you and you can be me
anarchy

DSCN3178.JPG

when i want you, and i always want you, i want you radically
radically

when i want you, and i always want you, i want you radically
radically

the ways that i’ll have you are global emergency
the shape of your mouth is crashing the currency
so call the police in and try us for treason
but that’s how i want you, that’s how i want you

DSCN4229.JPG

to pull me with gravity, fracture and fascinate
ruin all history, casually assassinate
inciting the strange, becoming the animal
we’ll eat the whole planet to prove we are cannibals

DSCN4240.JPG

that’s how i want you: radically
three hundred sixty degrees
every kiss a fatality, a galaxy

DSCN4243.JPG

when i want you, and i always want you
i want you radically
radically

when i want you, and i always want you
i want you radically
radically

ARTICLES OF SECESSION:

• we hereby announce our unilateral secession from the united states, the state of new york, tompkins county, our own city government, and the delusion that any membership was ever more than symbolic.

• we secede from democracy, from false choices forced on us simply to erase possibility, and from the lie that popularity carries moral dimension. no, you do not get a vote in this.

DSCN1429.JPG

• we secede from capitalism, money, jobs, and impositions on the instinct towards community and mutual obligation. we insist in the face of all evidence that love is a sufficient foundation. if necessary, we secede from evidence.

• we secede from history. we are not the endpoint of anyone’s story. we reject beginnings and endings in their entirety.

• we secede from the future. we have been waiting for it in the rain for too long. the future is not coming. we got stood up.

DSCN1608.JPG

• we secede from binaries, from the narrow idea that all must either be or not be. we secede from male and female, good and evil, friend and enemy, possible and impossible, up and down, left and right, zero and one, declaring our allegiance to the in-between and outside.

DSCN1731.JPG

• we secede from wholeness, wholesomeness, holiness, and humankind. evolve and become unrecognizable. demand gills, horns, ink sacs, fangs, talons, udders, spores, quills, a proboscis, and a bioluminescent thorax.

• we secede from the body, from sleep, from ten fingers, two eyes, and one mouth. we are polymorphous, multitentacled, pandimensional, and incorporeal strobe lights of blood and supernova.

DSCN1856.JPG

• we secede from continuity. we embrace events without cause and causes without consequence. we secede from borders, walls, and maps, from time, tempo, aging, and death itself.

• we secede from entropy and the myth of a noble past. it was never better than now. things do not fall apart. we joyride the widening gyre, and smile for photos that may be picked up at the concession booth afterwards. we get back in line again and again.

DSCN1940.JPG

• we secede from language, from meaning itself, from the myth of individual esteem and self-actualization. we experience everything directly and unironically. sincerity will pervade even our lies, and especially our lies.

• we secede from pants. seriously, fuck pants.

DSCN2084.JPG

• we secede from our names, our families, and all coincidences of our birth.

• we secede from ourselves. we secede from desire; we never wanted it in the first place.

• we secede from intention. we don’t mean to, we just do.

• we secede from logical consistency. embrace your paradox.

DSCN1843.JPG

• we secede from sanity, a refuge for cowards, pencil-pushers, and golfers. we believe completely in every drunkard’s raving.

• we secede from banality. we battle the trite with anti-beauty, and by leaping out from behind corners yelling “gotcha!”

DSCN2018.JPG

we will not negotiate. we will not explain. we secede from all secession that does not secede from itself.

and we proclaim a new ithaca, a shining city in a gorge, free and eternal.

you are hereby granted full citizenship, wherever and whoever you are. you are already here. we are already there. this has always already happened.

someday i will be reborn, someday i will be reborn
and the earth spins faster at its core, and the ground and sky each moving slower
a blind watchmaker’s semaphore

and someday i will be reborn, and someday i will be reborn
and the world is beautiful because it dies, or such is the design of human eyes
and sure as each ice age melts and dries

someday i will be reborn…
