(the note) i.m LeRoi Jones/Amiri Baraka

because each volume is distinctly different from all the others

because a simple ballpoint pen is sufficient

because somebody blew up america & the lecturer has not yet risen

because somebody needed to say these things & take the shit-storms bound to follow

because these lines are written in a place that is really nowhere

because racism is still alive & kicking using iron pipes

because public service radio censors anti-fascist songs

because anti-fascism is always self-defense

because you set some mighty high standards for questioning the mighty

because our heads are still colonial

because you gave us new slightly more spacious hearts

because the previous statement is existential & political & not clinical

because capitalism is a mental state & you knew it isn’t healthy

because fresh air is a good thing
