You crazy bastards by Reuben Woolley

I am not a silent poet

A notice to all those oppressors worldwide. You may flog and incarcerate bloggers in Saudi Arabia, murder and rape thousands in Nigeria and Syria, attempt the extermination of Palestinians in Gaza, choke and shoot blacks in America, restrict the right to strike in the UK, but we will not be silenced.

You may kill some of us with bullets and whips, but you cannot kill us all. Where one falls to your senseless cruelty, others will rise.

You are right to be frightened of us!

Here I am and here I stay. Fuck you!

:: drawn for jim ::

is quiet just the radio yet,
and did i hear the water
run next door.

i drew the dress yesterday,
with the star.

the dress that is hardly there,
and very there.

it must never fade in memory,
so i have fixed
the dirty marks and smudges,
the hurt and pain
and pinned the badge
again.

stiff little finger by Sonja Benskin Mesher

I am not a silent poet

a neighbour came, to ask about his dog.
about going to kent, spoke of an exhibition
in berlin.

how they had photographs of the streets
where they hung people in that war,
the second world war, from lamp posts
in berlin.

he stayed a long time, looking,
in berlin.

there is a trailer of a film, to be shown,
here on tv.

it has waited many years.

night will fall.
