conscious chant for peace: kindling

KINDLING
(11.16.05)

I can lie like the CIA
-pull the covers over your head-
so sweet, so tight
out goes the light
I captured with words
You in now stamped earth
Me bobbing my head
as you suffocate to death,
coughing
how did I get myself in
this
fucked up situation?

Good thing I work for the opposition

Taming tradition: the mission
Ancestral homes denied,
all I've got left
a right brain in the head
million years in coming
DNA uniting
dancing a pogo prance of
“This way to good life & heavenly humanity”
“This way to the best without leaving behind the rest!”

(Formative years before freedom
make me still consider “the instead”)

Could I lead into battle wild haired and leveling
Republican
Black Pagan Queer, but Republican?
With debt saddle
winking at human nature?
Socialist policies have no place in America!
The market makes true sense, we all put in our dollars and cents
Even me, the black chick with backdue rent

Glad to work for an opposing force, nature pulled
I push forth; The richer the world is, not the better for.

Beyond a pointed finger to starry sky
the NEXT is high!

now further away during our war days

Sly I'd say there's always been killin'
dying
mass murdering of man
united nations lying in state
Suffering under great civilizations' bloody weight
building tall temples of reserved gold
spreading ideals down roads dealt death

But I work for the opposition

Sorry, I'm lying to you. Sometimes I can't stand too.
Lone dark nights spent fearing it true
(Always Deadened We?)
LOOK, LOOK!
Birds are dying
Down from the sky planes now regularly fly
and the Superman is dead!
Turn-back-go-not-ahead!
The world is ending, hear me, that world must end...


I work for the opposition.

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY By thefayth, BiNet USA President With additional edits/support from Juba Kalamka, BiNet USA VP Bisexual communities have been notified of my intent to remove my networks, support and help from those who center white supremacy or practice trans exclusionary radical feminism. Simply put, I do not believe bisexual exclusionary communities (or beci's) to represent the bisexual community. When I emailed, messaged and tweeted at "Jayne Shea" and messaged her last Tuesday, I did so because I'd seen Seattle continuing to thrive with TERF's, or people who exclude trans people. It occurred to me, that the same group reported to BiNet USA for allowing cis only women was possibly closely associated with Jayne Shea; this has now been confirmed. And now the rest is history, Black-bisexual-intersex-trans history as I, thefayth, recently became more public in my transition from assumed cis female to known intersex trans multi-gen

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag (but people I knew said I did, so did "the news") By the artist formerly known as Faith Cheltenham, and the activist formerly known as thefayth With my stepping away from bisexual community; I am returning home to those who love me; not something always found in bisexual, or LGBTQIA communities. The true upheaval for me personally is most profound in that I turn away from the concept of giving, entirely. thefayth is no more as I must admit I have no faith in humans, if I ever did. Further, I decline to serve with my body, my mind or spirit to provide such faith to humans without benefit to me first and always. My bigger shame? Direct donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to advocacy between 2004-2017 focused on bi communities worldwide, while also working for free at same time; I should have picked one or the other! My shame is particular, in that I feel, I may have been treated better if I’d been giving only t
