Gone

I guess it was meant to be this way. Time to turn the page...

Denver: My Little Mountain Town

Every time I leave Denver I feel this void, as if I were leaving a part of me there. Never once have I felt so connected to the earth around me. The experience of living in Denver was unlike that of living anywhere else. I have fallen in love with the earth in Colorado: the mountains, the cold alpine desert air, the heat of the sun from a mile above sea level. Even now, while back in the East Coast for a a brief stay, I cannot stop thinking about returning to this little mountain town which I have come to see as home.

Tell me the word white man.

What people has your green god told you to hate today?

Are you proud white man?

This is your world: an empire of poverty and rot.

Surprise white man.

The children of the raven rise again.

Enjoy your time white man.

Time is eternal. But you are not.

Animal Racism

I cannot live a lie any longer. So I must reveal the truth -I am not human. In fact I regret having been born a man, I may not have been happier as a fish or a seagull but I would be no more or less human than I am in my present state. The term, human, is foolishly used to preclude homo sapiens from sharing an equal classification to other animals.

This notion of "humanity" stems from the general masses' wrongful desire to seek validation by placing themselves above others. This anthropocentrism is not unlike the attitude of 20th century's most villainized movement of Aryan superiority, post-Columbian European attitudes of manifest destiny which asserted racial and cultural superiority to native and african peoples on the basis of divine design etc. No, there is no difference between those who assert that non-human animals are inferior to Klu Klux Klan members who espouse white supremacy. The differences between human and non-human animals are purely skin deep. Humans possess complex brains designed for complex communication; this is homo-sapien's evolutionary nitch. A human's brain is no different to an alligator's jaw, a tiger's claws, or a rat's admirable adaptability to environmental shifts. It is for these reasons that I reject my humanity for my animality - my true animal state.

People often say that animal's lives are more dispensable than those of humans. I've never met an animal who didn't fear pain and death, can one say that one is inferior to another when one values its life and well being no less than the other? It is the natural evolution of human culture to embrace equality, amongst members of its own species as well as members of a shared biological existence. Who of you could deny this natural evolution of awareness? Which of you has not looked into the eyes of a cow and seen a living feeling creature? I have nothing in common with any man or woman who does not see himself/herself equal to the roaches scurry around in their darkened kitchens.

I have been fortunate to share a bond with other living things, both human and non-human. It is a beautiful experience, inherent to being an animal, to share a common understanding between oneself and another across the spectrum of genealogy. Far too often I find myself sharing more in common with a cat than I do with many a human. I wouldn't have it any other way. I realize that I value my work with underprivileged people's for the same reason that I value working with other animals. In our "modern" society, humanity is a term increasingly associated with class and economic privilege; ergo, the more money one has, the more human one is. After all, the poor are seen as animals: dirty, naked, and exposed to the elements. So what defines our humanity? clothing? air-conditioning? cable tv? A naked man standing in the forest surrounded by flora and fauna is no different than any other naked creature. I am that naked creature...and so are you, whether you realize it or not.

Two lost lovers kissing beneath the light of the moon.

Lost or not, those truly in love do not surrender.

Mujer me matas.

Como es que despues de tantos anos te sigo viendo?
Si Con tantas mascaras que usas llevas siempre el mismo perfume.
Un olor al rocio del amanecer.

Desde aquella primera vez en que nos conocimos.
Cuando te vi por primera vez caminando hacia mi.
Llevabas una falda negra y larga, que volaba entre tu piel y la niebla.

Ahi nos vimos por primera vez,
y justo ahi empezo un romance insaciable entre mi mento y mis suenos.
Te sigo viendo gitana, noche tras noche. A veces en los suenos,
y otras veces en las caras de mujeres que veo en la calle, en los bares, o en la disco.

Mujer...me matas. Y por ti deseo nada mas que morir,
Lo unico que pido es morir con mis labios pegados a los tuyos.
Un dia Mujer...
un dia la evidencia de nuestro amor perverso se vera cuando descubran dos cadaveres,
agarrandose en un abrazo eterno.
Ese sera la prueba de nuestro amor. Mientras que tu y yo tendremos los recuerdos, y los suenos eternos en donde viviremos juntos hasta en muerte.  Porque contigo la vida no basta. y sin ti la eternidad seria un castigo.

Muramos juntos mujer! Matame!
