Livestream | Marianne 2020

Marianne Williamson is running for president in 2020 and is dedicated to creating a new political possibility that elevates our standards of American democracy.

Williamson, who participated in the first two Democratic Debates, did not qualify for the third debate in Houston, TX which took place two days ago. She chose to live stream her responses to the third debate in the above video.

If you watch this video and Marianne Williamson’s ongoing campaign, you will avail yourself of a healthy tonic to free yourself and your judgment from corruption, lies, and brainwashing.

Marianne Williamson is, however, close to qualifying for the fourth Democratic Debate scheduled for October 15 and October 16, 2019 and sponsored by the New York Times.

with kind regards and respect,

Our goals can never be achieved through evolution, only through revolution
-Shulamith Firestone               

 

be a woman    reality  with yr hand on the thigh of my eros  please her

as you ejact      spirituality from the real’s repression                       eating

yr fist     mother nature interior               keeps both earspressed    to the wall

with tiniest voice inside it                       the soft fall

of an old newspaper              yr only alive for part of this simulation once

be a woman      under flesh eating flowers     thought worms   attracted

to the glow-eyed`       who wait for no sunshine           be a woman   doom

doom   an accident     blackthorned   eglantine          loosely diagnostic

my heart is a fine hurtle over which you climb

as if   no one lived there

it is not             an alarming situation

            but a gross  abuse       of life  sex     power     we’ve met him

many times before                  be a woman    turning             turnt

ore of the most sweeping global paranoia     ruinous                fuckable

girlhoods         capsizing         (to get rid of the Earth    will be man’s

ultimate sexual domination)     be a woman    he wants it

to be a surprise prove he knows her worth  a   hand   in    mouth    the myths

as product       and their reproducibility inside me       for a fee

she’ll raise you a little erotic charge    a violent   pocket of time

be a woman    supposed not to be   a woman           deconstructing

deep optic fantasy      I am a cunt in the earthbloodying pure heaven

a woman   composing unpower in the vaginal billfolds     of the cycle’s open secret

the silence is the folding action              of concealment        sex

on a dead thing        men there

be a woman

 

Mel Elberg is a queer poet interested in speculative feminisms and the effect of writing on our experience of time.
