You have no

business

No right to

Tell me how to feel.

I do what I must:

I wake up

and pull

the Sky

down.

I plant

my feet

in the best

tradition.

Here, where the

mattress is soft

and damp;

we are bound

by wire and anger:

we are one again.

Did Putin think He’d ‘Win’ the French Election?

I was playing with a screen shot of paintings of Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump in a Moscow shop window.

It was from a November 9, 2016 article in the New York Times.

I thought the idealized ‘Trump’ in the painting was funny so I brightend
the image to get a better look.

The painting is a triptych.

Here, I made a little video of it.

We don’t need anyone to tell us what we can clearly see with our own eyes.

Is that “Marine” Le Pen?

Democracy Means Never Having to Tell the President You’re Sorry

Even the Republican ones…

every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”

San Francisco Pride, 2017

Here are a few shots from Sunday’s Pride celebration in San Francisco.

I thought about the people I marched with in the GLF in the early 1970’s
and later, with Act–Up, in the 1980’s.

It felt good to hear the speakers honor the work we did in those decades

I thought of friends who passed from AIDS, or later from grief and trauma.

I think they’d be pleased that gay liberation became a global movement
for universal Human rights.
