an ode to crunkmas.

rumblings from afar, crunkmas hype hath hit hard
and the season surrenders for the holiday not far
so tremble, all ye who wish to stay sober
for the gods of crunk will not be looked over
from crunkmases past, spirit(s) in crystal and glass
awakening all that is crunk, cocktail, and class

december 29, 2011: crunkmas V. a crunkmess a'cometh!

a home in homs.

i guerilla warfare. so this one time i tweeted about wanting a benghazi-like stronghold for the rebels in syria, but if there's no international intervention to defend it, i guess it'll just have to be done the old fashioned way. stick and move, brothers... stick and move.

ramita navai.

so my cousin a million times removed ramita navai snuck into syria to get some dirt on the crackdown. it's funny to think that fantasies of conflict zones are in my blood, but who knows. i just saw her interview on anderson cooper about this...

Watch Syria Undercover on PBS. See more from FRONTLINE.

she does a lot of awesome journalism, keep poking around.

not mathematics versus poetry.

this article is too good.

a corpse.

through concentric circles you
find i am a bed of flowers and you are nothing to me
but tread carefully through what won't lie still
you are still moving me

caravaggio's canvas captures too little
and these cities are mine
find me your scarves and arms
and scarred guards armed, wary, cast aside

belonging, i am invincible
you are but an accessory
but still my successor surfing upon my wake
you are my home and i, waterfall

i'm here
because we are your friends
and on you i am dependent conclusion
a corpse unchosen, immortal instead
