off we go..a merrily through the woods
to the hospital and back...or over the river and through the woods. Most of my agitating is on hiatus for the moment. I'm just trying to get through the last of the semester well...but this semester has had it's druthers tossed about in laundry rooms...emergency rooms...and presentation experiences. My partner has attempted suicide many times over the past months. The last time the police found her gone quite blue with her belt around her neck. They were able to bring her back...But I cannot say with any certainty that she truly wants to be back...she's growing thinner than a shadow by the moment...I promised to hold her hand along the way...this way...that way till the end of this time...and I am...but , oh it is exquisitely painful.
I have been amazed at just how easily a person can disappear...again...again...again...my thoughts stumble over one another in a gruesome bit of leapfroggery...
and that blue blue skin spilt milk on some distant grassy knoll...so i hold on to her hand...and know I can not think of the right words...nor can I ask her to stay Share
My hungry ghost
is satisfied...happiness I amShare

Direct Action to Happen Now
In a private park known as Zuccotti Park, hundreds of protesters have been holding an occupation called Occupy Wall Street to call attention to corporate influence on US politics. The action began on September 17. Protesters were not allowed to go into the area on Wall Street they had planned to occupy because the NYPD put up blockades early in the morning.
This did not deter the occupation. Protesters managed to earn permission to occupy Zuccotti Park and sleep in it. They have now slept in the park for two (twelve nights now) nights in a row. And, the area has been dubbed Liberty Plaza. Additionally. protesters managed to convince people from all over the world to support the continuation of the occupation and donate pizza.

Anyone with eyes open knows that the gangsterism of Wall Street -- financial institutions generally -- has caused severe damage to the people of the United States (and the world). And should also know that it has been doing so increasingly for over 30 years, as their power in the economy has radically increased, and with it their political power. That has set in motion a vicious cycle that has concentrated immense wealth, and with it political power, in a tiny sector of the population, a fraction of 1%, while the rest increasingly become what is sometimes called "a precariat" -- seeking to survive in a precarious existence. They also carry out these ugly activities with almost complete impunity -- not only too big to fail, but also "too big to jail."
The courageous and honorable protests underway in Wall Street should serve to bring this calamity to public attention, and to lead to dedicated efforts to overcome it and set the society on a more healthy course.
