I always look for you on Facebook.
White no more
Tu me manques. Je le sais. Vous dites rien. Mais, je le sais.
“We’s out here marching & all the scared Niggas is dead” —Stokely Carmichael
Illegal ppl shud b congratulated at not lashing out in monstrosity whenever possible after experiencing nothing less than monstrosity in America. It is our gift to tame this fire land with calm cool blues too deep for groans, for words. We were expected to be monsters, too, but have emerged & remain human with some semblance of the divine. They hate me for that. Applause.
The illegal, if my etymology is correct,
first served as food for the gods, you think
i am mistaking us for ambrosia? No. Neither
were we manna, thank you much.
Later in life we were deported to the
French Revolution where our necks proved too large
for the Guillotine. YOLO, Sry Robespierre.
So at the point we were exiled back into the
Medieval Ages and served as experts at Alchemy —
my timeline gets shifty here
& i forget if the Nubian Gods followed
or the Haitian Revolt.
Either way, we eventually landed in the
Amerikas with our bastard children (the pilgrims)
but they out of jealousy prayed to Athena
& she offered us housing in the Cyclades
or Second Class Treatment in EE. UU. with
a chance at CIR, we chose the later for our
children and for a better tan. FIN.
After the New World slave, the First World illegal presents a dangerous case against Neo-liberal Capitalism & Liberal Democracies.
Remember when you slapped me before i parted
with pa’ to take that first exam that would
take me away? i was not older than 10 & did
not know on what part of the envelope one
addressed “to” and “from” — i should have
known after 5 years of schooling then. & you
should have known after 30 years, but we were
both dumb & long-suffering & that was just
a moment where your strength broke & i was
meant to be made stronger.
Exile & Christianity
In terms of stories of the undocumented migrant —> exile is central to the old/hebrew testmant — like unavoidable & Christ is the fufilment of that — you know, in counter hegemonic fashion the king of kings becomes a babe for a people ruled by empire & joins the lowly, cast-away, wretched & sinners to point to beloved community —
Coming-out/stories — that’s central to the parable of a light not hidden but placed on high — or the salt of the earth one — it’s like evangalism — Now GO & DO like-wise, give witness/testify/tell about the love of Jesus (amidst catastrophe) & how we ALL need healing & saving to be reborn/remade — & it starts from the self but pours out.
1. Pragmatic — what can be done, here and now to help the least of these
2. Messianic // #FWYH — what would the light life love of Jesus do right here right now to change/redeem this miserable condition that exist on this earth — UNAPOLOGETICALLY
— Ultimately you do you — right? — all truth’s is God’s truth — no? —> so jus’ do you & speak da truf!
you must be a US citizen
