Just so everyone is aware, I have a new Tumblr called, aptly enough –hypotenuse-wolf and titled “Max Wolf Valerio”. I’ll mainly keep it focused on poetry and writing, art and music with some trans-related “stuff” thrown in for good measure. Here: http://hypotenuse-wolf.tumblr.com/
I’ll be revamping this blog. More to come!
I have heard that dollar bills and coins are being scattered at the foot of the naked small penis Trump statue in the Castro in San Francisco. Possibly, these are offerings of some kind. Given up without clear intention but with a half-conscious desire for some kind of appeasement or ritual dispersion of bad fortune. Possibly, the Trump statue, which has been a huge hit, and now is becoming a site of collective sacrifice — should be mass produced like those big belly Buddha statues. Of course, it would be smaller, suitable for display on a desk or even on a car dashboard. It might need a small fig leaf in order to pass muster — or maybe not. I can see rows and rows of these naked Trumps in Walmart, in Chinatown stores, in Target, and in upscale stores – possibly there they will be made of precious metals.

j/j hastain is a poet, priestess, and pundit of the subconscious, surreal and sensationally sensate. Also a bit of a poltergeist of gender transmission and translocation, j/j is pleth *. I call pleth “j forward slash j” since pleth’s name is less nomenclature than address. A pointer toward a place, yet one that is virtual and not entirely dependent upon actual and specific earthly addresses although always informed by the senses. Continue reading
Flowers # 47
color starts —–
the skies are streaked by little hands
there are ornaments displayed
and then, destroyed
a punctuation mark
slips the skin of a
in each instance of joy
the tomb was broken down into
bowls and howls
a band of emerging children
fire on the heads and at

Another April flower! If you enjoy these poems, do donate please at the donate button. I’m in the midst of a lengthy and difficult transition and re-entry back into the Bay Area from Denver, and — I could use it and I do appreciate each and every dollar! In order to continue receiving these visions, from the Poetry Monster above and below, I apparently need a job, though I have stated again and again, that the visions feel like job enough! Even so… I am searching. So — don’t forget your local poet people, who is local to the globe, this earth and planet now. And, thank you!!!
I also want to thank everyone who has donated this month! I have never actively asked before, so it wasn’t easy to do so, but everyone who did send a bit of money, I really thank you from the bottom of my heart! You are all super!
waddling over to watch
a million criminal flowers
purple and bruised

Winding down here on NaPoWriMo, I’ve been doing many poetry related things, which I will report on in time. Here, my ongoing poem – Flowers, one poem for every shot of T I have taken so far. That means I have over 570 flowers to write!
in order to understand
flowers we have to consider
we have to consider
the white flat background
an escalating sobriety —
