My day off – 3 ½ hours standing in sleet, snow & rain—walking back from Temple with 17… of those who came to the “Silent-No-More” vigil. Clinton was to be on campus, but canceled cause of weather. Ache all over. Facilitation tent blew down. Tents sagging under wet snow—wind predicted for tonight. Haven’t heard how Scott Olsen is doing—fractured skull from rubber bullet [Oakland].

1:20 PM          At Hidden River reading—have 5 Songs of Occupation now—have to be back for a process meeting (City Hall) by 3:00—likely six hours outside to end of GA. Dressed for that, so overdressed here. Bright crisp normal autumn day.

                Universe -- of learning
           cordoned off
            our feet cold
            ice pelting our cheeks
            mouths silenced
            logos -- Exxon

  1. i love it.. i think you could EXTEND this….with the logos from the depths morphing into the sharks and bulldozers that finally kicked you out…a nightmare of logos circling cameras, hungry media looking for blood soaked sidewalks…in the age before they closed All public spaces..
