Coercion Doesn’t Work Because…

People who are coerced resist in ways small and large, conscious and unconscious, carefully planned and quite impulsive. For coercion to have it’s ostesible intended effect, it must be applied continuously, with all the […]

A note on the utility of gender-free pronouns in literature

Consider the phrase “the Raven of Stars begins xyr dance” which is what I was writing (for the Discordian Postcard Conspiracy) the first time I decided I required a multiple genderless possessive. In my case, I wanted to specify that despite being a ‘the’ the Raven of Stars was not-singular yet not-separated entities, and also that […]

Winter on the Ocean

Wishing for The Fall Hapless geese flying south Kermit the Frog projecting fuzzy idealism The littoral squawk of bishops And morning cocks’ crows Winter on the ocean Trawling for bread And thinking someday Shush! To shoot our seeds into the moon and stars Shattered machines on the beach No one — at all times — […]
