Sweet tea season is
Upon us. Take calorie
Counts – shove em. Southern.
If you saw the person get killed today, or witnessed violence, or suffered violence, chances are high you have been traumatized.
You may not make the best choices in this state. You may need to do your self care. You may need to step back.
Damage from this sort of shit is real but it doesn’t have to totally rule you. Your mental health is important. Slow down to take care.
If you feel totally frantic, urgent, adamant, you may really be the one who needs a time out for self care. Ask for help if you need it.
Coming to town. Effective
The movement against the right
Can we be calm or?
Threat, the issue, the problem
Then act to combat.
Increases delusions and
Suffering. It’s wack.
Maybe our side would
Do better to build our own
Or only active against
Is not so useful
It is good to be
Outraged, but that fear may not
Be the best start place.
Find some love within
And act from there to build up
And speak out as well
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.
Please repost/share this for us, we’d really like to get a diverse and well rounded amount of submissions!
“But who will do the dishes after the revolution?” This tired question has been asked to countless anarchists, communists, and others pursuing systemic change. But, we don’t have to wait for the rev to give an answer. Anarchist Housekeeping: Collective Living Under Capitalism is an attempt to cobble together the stories of anarchist collective living within the United States. The goal of this anthology is to share what it takes to build a successful collective, what works and what doesn’t, what you wish you knew, why you think collectives matter, and what we can take away from collective projects.
Submission Deadline- November 1, 2017
