Welcome

Hello! I am Mo Karnage.

My blog and other media platforms are a peek into my detritus lifestyle. Detritus being the material that sinks to the bottom of the ocean, feeding bottom feeders like crabs, and me!

I am an herbalist, parent, avid reader, author, carpenter, environmentalist, social justice advocate, vegan, queer, genderqueer, redneck, anarchist, witch, and sober person.

Here you will find my daily haiku, weekly unsolicited advice column “Yall Are Petty”, political essays, herbalist musings and tips, and more. There are also links to my instagram and other social media pages. Most of my content here will be in the form of writing.

My Patreon at http://www.patreon.com/mokarnage has different content including recipes, Herbalism, different daily haiku than you find here (that’s right I’m doing 2 a day), poems, articles, photos and more. Please consider becoming a patron if you enjoy my work – getting paid for it would help me produce more.

I am always happy for opportunities to be published or paid for my writing. I am also interested in opportunities to present at events or conferences on subjects relating to: radical history, anarchism, know your rights, sustainability and old windows, food not bombs, women in construction, herbalism and ptsd, how to write prisoners, grassroots organizing, plant walks, etc.

My construction business is Karnage Creations LLC and we do restoration of historic windows. Find us online at Richmond Window Repair and get in touch if you need windows repaired or restored.

Another of my enterprises is The Heathen Homestead LLC, our herbal farm in Mineral, VA. You can see what products we are selling (all kinds of herbal goodies) and what markets we will be at here: The Heathen Homestead. Contact me for scheduling herbal consultations.

Hey Yall

If you follow my social media you may have seen that I helped my friend Twila Jane a few weeks ago get started installing flooring at her new dance studio at 123 E. Main St.

I am so excited about their new space. I actually am going to have the opportunity to sell my herbal and craft products there in a mini punkothecary, and may even teach some classes. Other amazing people such as LeVar Carter, Owl Rare, and Laura Rettinger may teach Yoga and other classes in the space. And my friend Raven Mack aka Dirt God is going to try the space out as a venue for Haiku Battles in Richmond. This is such a collaboration of great people and has so much potential. Please support the space, as all of us artists an d crafters and teachers and healers have big hearts and smol smol budgets.  This is Twila’s space, please sign up for their classes and for other classes in the space. Richmond is what we make of it, and here is a chance to make something pretty great!!!

From my friend Twila on Facebook:

Twila Jane is at Electric Nomad Dance.

Hey ya’ll! Lots of folks have asked how they can support the new studio space, and this is one of the best: sign up for or share our classes! 💖💖💖 New sessions begin in just under two weeks, and these first few months will be super important for us to have a solid registration. If you and yours don’t want to dance, but support our work, please consider purchasing a session for someone who receives a scholarship from us! 🤓 💃💖 We are also offering a discount for college students as well, so bring your ID for a reduced class fee. Beginner classes are Tues, Wed, and Thurs 6:30-7:30, and an open level class at 7:30 pm on Thursdays. Next week we have off and I’m gonna be working on improving the space even more. See you there?? Please share! Registration is up at www.electricnomad.net/signup

2/9-2/10/2019

Some days leave the house

And regardless of weather

Go outside my dudes

Early daffodil

Climate change tricked her yellow

Blooms. Premature, doomed

2/8/2019

Toaster strudel trash

Score universe provides I

Guess. I should detox

2/2/-2/7/2019

Portapotty life

Peepeepoopoo with no strife

We all have bodies

Resting bitch face try

Resting itch face! Mosquitos!!!

Summer is worth it

Therapist says I’m
Depressed ha ha ha ha ha

Fake it to make it

Winter warm days are

Vital to survival. Thank

You Mr. Gold sun!

Indian buffet

Is the best way to feed your

Vegan Happiness

Food in phases. I

Forget about favorite

Dishes sometimes. Weird.

My Instagram ghosted me

My Instagram ghosted me. And I feel some type of way about that. Anxious. For sure. Sad. I don’t know. Their platform sucks in terms of providing help. So here is a picture of my new haircut and I will be posting belated haiku today as well.

2/1/2019

New month. New you, me

New everything. New day.

New chance. New spring comes
