The struggle is demading

Alonzo Riley

First revolutionary
tasks: 1) Take out
all surveillance cameras.
2) Learn the local
flowers & birdsongs.
3) “Read, read, read!”
4) Sleep naked.

Romeo Clandestino
suggests Aikido.
Yoga for the masses
is also sage.
Comrades and lovers
need bodies they
can bring to bear,
respendent,
lithe as cats
and ropewalkers.
Romeo says: parcours
for the young
and quick-healing,
simple bouldering
for the oldsters.

Artistry.
Mind and body
finely balanced,
glad-making.
All the arts
in their slow-
unfolding secrets
are potencies,
personal and
collective.
The struggle is
demanding.
Ergo,
one does not live
by one century
alone.
