Still

April 28, 2015


Numeral: 400

As in 400

Parts per million

Carbon dioxide
We release
Into the atmosphere,
Among other gases.
Chemical
Warning signs in the sky
We still ignore.
We can't take
The heat
Rising below the clouds.

Watchdog

April 28, 2015

WHAT DID YOU PUT IN YOUR POCKET?

It occurs everyday in this natural food holler:
Something looks suspicious, somewhat askew.
Doesn't look like a Yuppie, probably don't have a dollar.
Any Black man, any poor brother will do.

Like a solid shadow, the watchdog follows his steps
Through neat, crowded aisles of health:
Past free-range chicken, organic kale, turn left
Tailing a brother, walking by himself.

Death by Ellis Act Eviction

While Ellis Act reform was being voted on in Sacramento for the second time, you probably were unaware of the recent passing of two seniors whose lives were profoundly affected by the law.

Online Schemes

No doubt you've heard the old saying "if something sounds to good to be true, it probably is."

But even the best of us have been caught off guard by a slick talker or something that appears to be on the level.

Money over atmosphere

For most of us we think of gentrification as middle class and wealthy developers coming into our communities and buying homes, neighborhoods and entire communities from under residents who resided there for multiple years, sometimes even decades.

We seldom think of gentrification and the effects on the atmosphere, environment or even the planet.
