Ol’ Red Jack Hirschman: He Weaponized Words by Nat tuRner

I.

Death comes in 3s they say. So maybe 6

months of San Francisco Poet Laureates

Ferlinghetti,

Mirikitani,

Hirschman

checking out counts as three???

 

I can’t quote Jack—except for, “Can’t speak

for all, that’s the whole first point—” Yet, I

can wax into the wee hours on his arms

Embracing me as enemy combatant vs capital

                                                                                                      

II.

The rat-ta-tat-tat-tat of his typewriter weaponized

words enforcing dialectical laws… “Any means necessary:”

paintings, poems, collages, translations in Haitian Creole,

Russian, Spanish, German, Hebrew, French, Greek, Italian,

Albanian for foreign fighters daring to don red badges of

Resistance…

 

The rat-ta-tat-tat-tat of his typewriter weaponized

words ricocheting off Wall Street and Washington

warlords. Words echoing in hearts and minds of

of auto and postal worker children—paychecks

away from zoo bellies, no soap-waterless weeks

accompanying cardboard mattresses and tents

 

Revolutionary Poets Brigade internationalist

commandant, North Beach head dug in at Café

Trieste, his guided missiles questioned lunacy.

Some even struck where little cable cars climb half

way to the stars, carrying confederate sympathizers

belching benzene, coughing COVID droplets on operators

 

Revolutionary Poets Brigade internationalist

commandant, North Beach head dug in at Café

Trieste; Fishbowl escapee drinking cigarettes/smoking

Jack Daniels, living hand-to-mouth on poet’s minus six

figure salary

No mas… Red Jack Hirschman—Presente!!

Bio-sketch (2-27-16)…

I started into believing that I would be able to show my data and my photogRapHics in 1996. By 1998 I was learning computers would gain ascendant methods thru technics of programming for a future connected to data and information. That was nuclear-Molecular finding(s) to share and my personal-Activism w first account specifics and engendering(s).

As cameras went 'digital-Tech' I fond that editing was also to follow in 2004. Then, in 2005 my first digital camera had replaced usage(s) of s.l.r. 35 mm's. I have no mercy nor pity for the thieves who have stolen my hard werk, as anxiety of what I allowed was mid-stReam--anyway! Those asshole-Pukes have cost me $1,000's on a fixed income and I remain single, sole-Survivor of two-Families w.o. offspring!
