“Soul Travels: After The Fall”

•April 16, 2014 • Leave a Comment

(w)hite Tolerators and HIStory-ical (B)lacks are The Crack Cancer Virus I call COWARD!

They walked unto The Battlefield after The 1865 Geneva Convention and adorned themselves in Dead People clothes.

This COWARD-ice keeps Ma America The Beautiful a cold ugly space where Human Beings  struggle just to breathe in a “politically-correct” manner.

iAm ALL 360º of police,  prisoner, preacher, porchmonkey and playah blood of Ma Ancestors,  Before Times People, KinFolk and neighbors.   This is Ma Wealth.

And it is for Ma Survival that I live this life with every drop of Ma Inheritance.

Currently,  I am working at keeping a journal of observations made as I negotiate the Healthcare and Disability Services System to (re)establish my identity.

This path is littered with (w)hite Tolerators and HIStory-ical  (B)lacks who having been trained as “politically-correct” jobbers, realize no fault in the callous disregard that their credit scores afford them in their thinking a zip code/area code and smartphone makes them superior to A Carib-American NEGA Woman Artiste.

Along this PERSONAL journey, I am gifted with knowledge gained  working with Ma KinFolk and Neighbors in Dieppe Bay, Hamilton, Toronto,  Frederiksted, Brooklyn, Old San Juan, Opa Locka, Carol City, Pittsburgh and Seattle.

I am bolstered by a half-penny I paid as dues in 1968 to join The Trades and Labor Union. 
I am blessed having been educated in a luxuriously gifted monk fashion by SUPERB EDUCATORS from The Methodist Church of The Caribbean and Americas, where I completed school and began teaching in 1973 at six years old.

I Lifted MaSelf up from crawling on broken glass with a sucessful plea to attend The University of Miami Caribbean Writers’ Workshop in 1995, where as the Lone Carib-American and only person WITHOUT a corporate book deal, I facilitated after-hours comprehension and understanding sessions to enhance the experience of those West Indians.

I created and implemented an Intergrenerational Literary Arts Workshop in Broward County in 1997.

I interned at South Florida Public Radio Stations with Mr. Clint O’Neal,  Mr. Arturo Gomez and Mr. Dayne Dickson.

Surely,  with all that and more, I can negotiate my way successfully through the Healthcare and Disability Services apparatus in Seattle.

not so fast.

apparently,  the cold, ugly crack cancer vurus that is politically-correct COWARD jobbers think I am required to give them ‘something’ they do not possess.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki: Photos From the Ruins

One scene shared by all of the 20th century’s bloodiest conflicts might have been lifted straight from The Road Warrior , or a Beckett play: spectral landscape; buildings obliterated; blasted trees; lifeless wasteland. The photographs in this gallery, for instance — pictures that starkly reference every bleak, war-battered panorama from Verdun to Iwo Jima to Chosin Reservoir to Pork Chop Hill — were made in September, 1945, in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan.

But far from chronicling the aftermath of a sustained, slogging campaign, these images — none of which were published in LIFE magazine — depict the devastation produced in a few unspeakably violent seconds. Here, LIFE.com presents pictures from both cities taken in the weeks and months following the bombings — bombings that killed a combined 120,000 people outright, and tens of thousands more through injury and radiation sickness. Included, as well, are scans of typed memos from photographer Bernard…

50 Essential Books of Poetry That Everyone Should Read

It’s National Poetry Month, and you’re probably thinking: “I should really read more poetry. But where oh where do I start?” Well, sound the trumpets, because here is Flavorwire to the rescue! After the jump, you’ll find a list of 50 essential books of poetry that pretty much everyone should read. There’s something for everybody here, from the deeply established canonical works to riveting, important books by newer poets, from the Romantics to the post-modernists, from the goofy to the staid. NB: as with other lists like these, only one work per author has been included, and there is a bias against the “Collected Poems of” unless necessary. Obviously, inevitably, painfully, there are many, many poets and works of poetry, both of great renown and less so, that are missing here and should still be read by everyone. This list can only reflect personal taste, chance meetings, and wild subjectivity…
