  1. when push comes to shove
    at the very least
    strangers, red and blue, can
    still come together
    loyally uncoiling
    a cornered intuition
    beyond reasonable
    suspicion

  3. Beautiful “Y”! I love this. All the color and paired with a poem. I think this is one of my favorites of yours.

  4. Yes, the striking photograph, with detail in the paper wrappings, the mixture of colors, the beauty of that mix, and the clear message; Non-Toxic/made in U.S.A create the perfect icon for this poem; one of the strongest matches of your photography and poetry. And yes, /a celebration of diversity/ instead of a condemation is certainly in order. Your poet’s tongue and artist’s eye have found a perfect synthesis.

  5. SB 1070…You, too, huh? You make me laugh.

  6. I love your site, and read it everyday so it is most respectfully, I might assume you haven’t read the law, but rather are just mouthing liberal sentiments.
    I’ve been painfully aware of the issue since 1998 in my career as a construction tradesman for an international union and as an independant contractor.
    It’s ironic to hear my old time illegal worker friends complain about the onslaught of pressure placed on the labor pool. We predicted this in the “boom time”.
    I have to admit we have the advantage (disadvantage?) of first hand knowledge, as opposed to the gullible general public. We, as brothers enslaved, believed initially it was simply a matter of corporate greed; our belief now is the motivations to promote the spectre of racism and lack of enforcement tend toward the political.
    Sorry, but a practiced eye reveals the current administration’s agenda to slander the makers of this law.
    Believe you me, I’d rather be writing Japanese short form poetry or walking the dog than talking about this, but I feel compelled to offer factual data.

    Whew, that was a mouthful! I prefer looking forward to your art!

    • thank you for your thoughts. i understand your assumption of “mouthing liberal sentiments,” and i hope that i am not. though there are times that i may lean towards a political sentiment, i feel that here, i am writing from the intuition that we are all immigrants, and we need to find a way to not destroy each other. there is no easy solution.
