“Contra la policía/Against the Police

My entire Oeuvre is against the police
If I write a Love poem it’s against the police
And if I sing the nakedness of bodies I sing against the police
And if I make this Earth a metaphor I make a metaphor against the police
If I speak wildly in my poems I speak against the police
And if I manage to create a poem it’s against the police
I haven’t written a single word, a verse, a stanza that isn’t against the police
All my prose is against the police
My entire Oeuvre
Including this poem
My whole Oeuvre
Is against the police.”
Miguel James

David Wojnarowicz
“I want to throw up because we're supposed to quietly and politely make house in this killing machine called America and pay taxes to support our own slow murder and I'm amazed we're not running amok in the streets, and that we can still be capable of gestures of loving after lifetimes of all this.”
David Wojnarowicz, Close to the Knives: A Memoir of Disintegration

Alice Notley
“We name us and then we are lost, tamed
I choose words, more words, to cure the tameness, not the wildness”
Alice Notley, Mysteries of Small Houses

“in a way love is all there is
that's why love is so hot”
