Wanted to take a
nap. dogs sleep in yard in sun
they have the right idea

Have you climbed pancake

Tammie says I should
clean out my truck, but it was
just one little roach

I nerd out over
some windows – pulleys, weights and
sash bead, oh baby

camping down by the
river gets real fucking cold
with pee in the bed

Up on the roof top
Santa falls, hope he’s got real
good insurance yall!

hygeine choices like
what day should I take a bath
not today, no sir!

derby hats make me
think about swindling- would
you buy some snake oil?

a bored old man with
a backhoe is hell on the
landscape and old sheds

words mean less these days
actions mean more anyways
put up or shut up

internet news is
less important than dishes
idling in my sink

tired of critiques
of celebrity actions
they are meaning-less.

I choose terrorism
in an Orwellian world
double speak, don’t think

voting either dont
work or means using power
over others, yuck!

new hybrid car- safe
mom says- left it on, silent
it drove off, I ran!

chewing tobacco
is a nasty habit but
I’m a nasty man

have you ever heard
of a vinyl repair man?
NO I don’t think so

I dust my V H
S tapes. Its 2014
get on my level

house looks good. siding
covers rot beneath, just like
local politics

Sober Spaces in the Punk and Anarchist Scenes Updated from Cuddle Puddles and Hot Pants # 2

This is an article I wrote a loong time ago, like 6 or 7 years ago for the second issue of a zine I wrote called Cuddle Puddles and Hot Pants. Recently some friends asked for permission to use it for the veganwarfare.com website. I supported that of course, but I wanted to give the article a look over to do any editing or updating that might be needed. So here is the updated version, and please check out http://www.veganwarfare.com for more rad articles.

Sober Spaces in the Punk and Anarchist scenes

Within the punk and anarchist scenes there are many activities that are of interest to a broad spectrum of individuals- including people who drink/smoke/use drugs, people who never have, and people who are recovering addicts to certain substances. The problem is that many of these activities end up being organized in such a way that they are only accessible to people who drink, smoke, or do drugs – or are willing/able to tolerate those who do so. This means that there are significant sections of the populations who are either put in situations that are uncomfortable and lead to mental and physical health problems, even relapse, or are not able to attend at all. It splits our community and it limits our community. This is even a bad situation for people who do drink/smoke/do drugs. Because if they are not exposed to people who are sober they may not realize that they don’t always have to get fucked up to have a good time. (more…)
