Dankbriv

Dankbriv is my first full-length poetry book, collecting my best poems from the past three years which have not yet been published in a chapbook. The poems in this book were Patreon exclusives, poems written for my scrapped (E)Stranged Earth chapbook of Marxist poetry, and poems previously published in now-defunct indie literary magazines; as well as a few completely new poems. The book is 80 pages long, including 77 pages of poetry, and

meta update on my patreon 

I'm not going to be posting about new patreon content on my social media right now because I don't want to detract attention from people who need money more than I do. New content will still go up on the 1st, 8th, and 15th, but existing patrons will just have to check their patreon feeds.

I'm not really trying to attracted new patrons right now anyway since I'm starting a new job soon and will likely be pausing/stopping the patreon after that happens.

If you are outside PA and do not have a PA area code: PHILLY NEEDS YOUR HELP

Flood 215-776-1261 with inane pointless calls and texts. Make it unusable. This phone number belongs to a tear-gassing PPD officer who is trying to avoid accountability by using his cell phone instead of radio to communicate (where we can track police activity)

Do not use leftist symbols that would indicate his number was leaked

Force the PPD back onto radio so we can track them. Harass this ass.

RUIN 215-776-1261

CALL FOR SOLIDARITY WITH PHILADELPHIA CITY WORKERS!!

Mayor Kenney is making huge cuts to city services and laying off city workers! Philadelphia is the poorest major city in America and city services are ESSENTIAL to the survival of our most vulnerable communities in a majority nonwhite city. Civil servants keep the city running and the city workers unions are asking us to act in solidarity

May 26th is a day of action! There's remote and in-person ways to participate

New poem up on Patreon

"Nails" is about how it's said that humans didn't have skin until they left the Garden of Eden. It's about imperfections.

Hey who are the InfoSec people that I know on here. I know there must be a few of you. I've got a comrade who thinks they're dealing with a targeted hacker/stalker going after them and I could use some assistance

Are you a leftist with UI/UX programming skills in React? (Why... Isn't that what Mastodon is made in? 🤔)

Anti-Eviction Map is looking for your help developing a data tool empowering tenants to fight back against landlords!

If you're feeling lost right now, and you want to know what to do. How do we organize now? A comrade in the communist collective I'm in put together this really good introductory text compilation that I HIGHLY recommend you read:

docs.google.com/document/d/1lP

It's only 54 pages, it's not dense, it's very accessible. You can read it all in 1-2 hours and you will feel a lot more prepared afterward. It's worth your time whoever you are, I promise.

Happy here is a poem from my nearly-finished the chapbook: "Poems that are not about coronavirus disease 2019"

I only have one page left before it's done I've just been stuck trying to figure out how it should end. This is the penultimate poem.

Hey y'all, Philly Socialists, one of the most promising leftist organizations in the country, is raising funds to provide pabdemic disaster relief mutual aid across Philadelphia, one of the poorest major cities in the country. They do amazing work and pioneered the base-building model of organizing that has found so much success in tenant's unions and community gardens. Now they're responding to COVID-19

If you can donate it would be so impactful.
