The Museum of Capitalism, Part Two










Under Construction
text to follow





I pledge allegiance
to the flag of the
Police State of America
and to the Plutocracy
for which it stands




Onward with our 21st Century
Late Capitalism has
decayed into Post Capitalism


I'm the
Chairman of the Bored



I won an award



Each page represents
a different position
I've taken on the same stock
--it's not morbid



New employees receive
orientation and indoctrination
here




Corporate logo banner
Hall of Honor




 performance work
was in progress

A brawny fork lift vehicle
moves forward slowly
while holding up a large
steel coffee grinder
which was running




One of the collaborating
artists runs the machine




Duchampian

Don't get hold of
the wrong end of the stick










There's no right end




I once said to a slick detective
from OPD on a free shuttle bus
"
Regardless of your ideology
you have to admit
f judges are too liberal
with trigger-happy cops
there's going to be a social cost

He had just chuckled about the
remodeling signs outside Bevmo
after they were looted in a recent riot

Black men smiled when they heard me
the handsome cashmere cop was taciturn





Universal
handcuff keys



In future
artificial intelligence
will guide our ideas
of punishment and reform






My smart phone lights up
the otherwise very dark room
where you lie on a pad
and hear indecipherable
relaxation tapes
It is a sinister relaxation
that is achieved





Chunks of pollution
from like fracking
or tar sands or something




Police persuaders
tasers crops stingers
and security wands






Happy vapor trails

I'll continue to fill out this post
but I want to get some
boots on their grounds




How has Capitalism
change the Bay?




San Francisco with its new
donkey-dong TransBay building
Inappropriate to use
Jeff Sessions favorite word

Filings / Refraction Study


















(in progress)







I employ the God particle
to repair the fabric
of the time and space
 continuum



I'm tired of being
a frugal poodle
Kerouac was watching
the Frugal  Gourmet
TV show when he died
of many Kerouac fans
I have met
most never ventured anywhere
outside their respective
comfort zones


The assholes will
 inherit the earth
apparently



Impression of Ancient
Organisms

My thoughts sink
to where I'm walking
on the fossilized bottom

Near what is now  Brazil
where the slave multitudes
were landed

Eons later it's Portugal Cove
Mistaken Point
surgical slippers

Over soft blue ashen stone
daisies stars orange segments
simplest forms writ large

Half a billion years into sea
Ediacaran Pompeii
Newfoundland style so dim







Labrador just before
the Cambian explosion
Coastal barrens

The edge of Avalon
self-similar modular patterns
oldest animal muscular motion


I asked the clouds
for a new assortment of thoughts
the old ones have
lost their edge
too round too liquid
too much quicksand



Full Moon

climbing over eighth street
dangerous moon of July
sexy young buy booze


Alien orange
go back out and gaze at it
I don't trust my luck


Minor algae bloom
bronze dragonflies are fucking
on the mucky muck

Having the Craic in July







Everybody's happy nowadays







Salvage attempts
The last nostalgic captures
from the trusty old phone cam
re-captured on a cracked screen









My old blackberry spot







A bottle of THC soda
that the Lord gave me

German tour bus
parked at the Port








Lady at Figment
an arts fair in
 Mosswood Park








Oakland misses Prince
let's go crazy
y'all








One more
evil automobile










America
 has a ghoul-haunted
history





Got to return and
try to get this again





I only wanted to see you
sometime in that
Purple Rain

The hummers of summer
beat the bummers of summer






Maybe I can really salvage these
and many other interesting shots
in better shape otherwise adieu
to several hundred captures

Going to the Dyke March
in San Francisco
with copious flowers
in their hair


Nightmarish
horse-morphic vehicle
at Figment Arts Festival

 

A  grim fairytale
coach


She was sweet and warm
like everyone's favorite
high school art teacher
