The Manifestation of Sisíism

In commemoration of my 39th (don\’t ask) birthday today, here is a call for a dramatic change in this beloved country of mine.

The Manifestation of Sisíism

By the dawns of the early light by the smell of burnt oil in the midst of selfish greed run amuck under the cloak of evangelical hypocrisy, I sigh and decry the hostility vented towards poor Latino immigrants trying to find a place in the sun like those who have come before— legal and illegal— I ask: Where is this country headed? Blame the weak; the poor; hate the Spanish-speaker; the Muslim; the gay; the agnostic; the liberal, all but those who have set it all in motion— who will be next? Delusion: the drink of money and power blinds and deafens the senseless stupidity and bigotry foxed across the land of repeat and repeat till lies become truth. When will this country awaken from the stupor of veiled infestation? Let us say sisí, let us create, think, make the positive. Let art, literature, music, drama, morality, and value for humanity drown out cries of Iraq, senseless bombings in Israel and palestine Let us destroy the meaningless of present life— a revolt of Dada\’s revolt to Sisí like twins sprung from the same vile seed—to manifest a new age of art and life.
