San Francisco-
Where: San Francisco State Building
350 McAllister St, San Francisco


this place is a palace that holds king and queens

brothers and sisters and warriors and not. The palace

was born on ancestors ground and they guide us.

We love and support and give housing and care in

this palace, that's why we call it homefulness

A Covered Life

a covered life is a covered dream

a covered life is a covered death

a covered life is many things

but it ain't me


Slam dunk as hard as you can

like pushing over my man.  Slam dunk like

the wind is right behind you

guiding you where you need

to go.  Slam dunk in the hall, slam dunk

in the mall but don't forget

to slam dunk at all.

Yellow Corn

December 1, 2011

Embarrassed isolation
Center of that spotlight on a darkened stage
Red hot anger surrounded by blackness
For that singe instant
When he looked across the table at me
And playing with the yellow dye #5 canned corn
On our lunch plates
“I hate this yellow corn… yellow you.”



December 1, 2011


A sharp word: Divorce
Takes to my World
A colonial town
Games and peace
On colonial tiles

“Mami” and I
My aunt’s old penthouse room
An oasis
A high stone clock

General Strike is...Decolonized

My thoughts: I thought that the general strike was impressive because there was thousands and thousands of people out there saying “We are the 99 percent”.  What the 99 percent is are all the workers in the world who get paid low-wage on jobs.  The 1 percent is all the bank corruption and the bankers from Wall Street.


Oakland General Strike 2011

I am 10 years old and my name is Day. At 10:00 am my dad and me went
to the Oakland General Strike. During it I saw a bunch of people with
bikes and people with disabilities. There wer about a ¼ mile of tents!
A lot, right? Most of the stores were shut down for the day.

After we went to the government building but they locked us out. We
stood there, me, my dad and all the people with their wheelchairs.
