ginger fried rice

I learned how to make ginger fried rice lately.  It’s my favorite dish at this Thai place Ming and I like.  I get it with tofu, spicy level 1!  Wow, so much gingerness.  My tummy feels so happy, when I eat that dish.  So warm and loved. So I was like–maybe it’s not that hard… Read More »

sign

There’s this empty sign, one street over.  By a church or former church.  I was taking a walk by myself in the early morning.  Wishing Ming was with me–he went to serve at the Worker. The sign I looked up at.  I love this sign.  I like to pretend it’s a message from God, a… Read More »

my truth

My friend made a mini-zine, and there’s a poem by me in it.  The zine is made of thank you notes!  I love saying thank you.  My truth is in there.  Please consider procuring a copy, which will entail donating to an org that supports foster kids. https://teenytinyzines.blogspot.com/2021/08/new-zine-and-fundraiser-for-kids-in.html California Herbal Medics I have a page… Read More »

Love & Rage

Race, Gender, and Anarchist Cultural Politics is a cool panel I saw online over zoom.  There were three speakers speaking some truth of their expertise. I learned a lot–something about anarchist propaganda in the Caribbean up to 1920, then some Spanish writers who were women, and also a little about Love & Rage, which was… Read More »

pain

“Oh hey, you blew my mind today.  When you told me that pain isn’t just to tell us that something’s wrong.”  I said this to Ming, as he was driving us home yesterday.  We’d just housesit for a friend then dropped off some mail at the post office. “Yeah?” Ming asked. “Yeah, I always thought… Read More »

There’s a series of short poems about dreams right in the middle, and I drew some cute pictures too–shopping cart, street… Read More »

comrade

It was good to see my old comrade A Iwasa, in Tucson.  We went to the Hare Krishna temple and had delicious lunch at Govinda’s.  Ming and I were there before, years ago.  But all those Govinda’s-es can blend together in my head, a bit. Long ago, A Iwasa and Ming and I would go… Read More »

fish letters 8

I copied a new zine yesterday, fish letters 8.  It’s about abuse, feelings, breaking up, and how we realize connections among present, far away, very near, one relationship, and another. Love, disability, addiction, family pain, and when enough is enough.  It’s a perzine, unsent letters zine, 24 pages, quarter size, hand bound simply with pink-red… Read More »

no romance in hell

No Romance in Hell by Hyena Hell is a comic book zine given to me by a comrade-friend.  I usually don’t like comic books that much, but this one knocked my socks off.  So I review it, in hopes you will enjoy the review and consider finding it, to read it too. The subject matter… Read More »
