What fucks me up about the Darren Wilson fundraiser is that he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He doesn’t have to hire a lawyer. He’s on paid leave, so he’s not losing wages. This is not covering his expenses, because he doesn’t have any additional expenses. This is a reward. He’s getting a $250,000 reward for murdering an unarmed black kid, two days away from starting college, in broad daylight.
I just read in a book about the history of Communism that Marx and Engels used to get very drunk, then break the lights on lampposts and have to run from the London Policemen. Mind, this was years after they were already established as the most prominent Communist thinkers.
I just really love history. It has the best stuff ever.
unique new york unique new york,
a freak delivered by
a sickly stork.
i planted mini mansions
in the roots of tipsy trees,
autumn colors my history
& every leaf
the dirt is giving birth to money
mothers & parched artists,
fisticuffs in sleep—
waking with mirrors
yawning round our withered wrists.
