We stand in solidarity with the uprising unfolding across the country following the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Nina Pop, Jamel Floyd, and those affected by generations of structural violence against Black communities.

We're putting together a list of resources for self-education, mutual aid, and ongoing action in the struggle for racial justice.

Vito

 

restless
desk
stalks
interior
jumps
barrier
old aisle
st marks

what is
vito’s
episteme?

epic
piss
stream
meme

& he didn’t do
it, poetry

he did the silver rod
the papacy downfallen
but all else risen
he did mojo magic
quick wit’s
alien bite
& revolution
turning a million ways

what did I learn

transmit
all vibrancy
a body
can take
holy, holy. holy
