On Torture, Art, and Prisons

July 15, 2014

Many today are beginning to understand that within US prisons and particularly the SHU construct that torture is at the helm of this program. I would agree with this assessment, especially since I am being held captive in solitary confinement. However, torture comes in many forms.

Pic the Police!

July 14, 2014

Within the last year there has been a greater visible police presence all over the city of San Francisco. What was once tolerated and even considered part of the local culture, or ambiance, if you will, is no longer tolerated. This includes street vending street food and open marijuana consumption.

America’s oldest and longest-standing war in history is waged on its own civilian populace: The War on Drugs.

Paper Cuts Through Concrete

Trapped in a capsule unable to breathe,
My mind grapples with thoughts beyond years in solitary,
My pen is my friend and this I know,
My imagination explodes as my environment proves weary.

Buildings constructed to strip one’s humynity,
Ravaging the mind in ways that leave no physical marks,
The public unaware of this dugeonization,
If this were a physical act my limbs would be fed to sharks.

The Lumpen HAS Stood Up!

May 20, 2014

The people concentrated in US prisons are largely Lumpen. In the classical sense the lumpen-proletariat are a subgroup of the proletariat. In the US this can better be defined as simply the Lumpen class. A “class” simply means people who have a common social or economic relation to society. I.e. in our case, as prisoners we share common relations to the capitalist mode of production--we don’t have a pot to piss in--that currently exists in US society. Our interaction to the means of production results in us existing as Lumpen.
