After patriarchy collapses / And capitalism crumbles / We’ll get lost in each other’s / Trickster minds and bodies / Free to touch and let go / Touch and let go, sliding in/ And out of kaleidoscopic embrace
Surging through the streets in uncountable thousands, burning policestations to the ground, convincing army troops of their commonality, spontaneously organizing themselves to protect property, direct traffic, and deal with emergencies, smoking out Mubarak’s attempt tocapitalize on the inevitable looting and violence, they are revealing to the world a new national template: self-organization.
Let’s burn the flags of all nations
No more nation-states
No more patriotism
Try it, you’ll like it
Remember Obama's campaign slogan? "Yes we can." Yes we can what? Stand the robot of monoculture up on its wheels again? Our challenge goes beyond universal health care, economy, and environment. It is no less than pulling the plug on 8000 years of Empire.
What will the word "human" mean/in 2025, not that far away, really/when everybody will be in possession/of one little room the size of their heads/dreaming revelatory dreams?

[Must Not Sleep] • "Don't forget that Osama's a product of our greed.

[Must Not Sleep] • "So it's all mixed up together," she said.
