Raccoons are not too intoxicated to tear down a building

We are organizing in mass to be a force that will be destroyed before the Enemy even knows we are there.  Who aroused the riot of Runt Raccoons everywhere?  Who pushed us to stick our tongues in cracks in the system?

The Bosses we can’t get off our backs.  The bang bang and ratatatat of police militarization.  The War on Drugs.  The rejection of Sincerity, the rejection of Love.  The abuse of our Human Confusion for Profit.  The destruction of counter cultures that could count.  The revitalization of New York City.  Racist fingers pointing at their distant brothers with fury.

If we cut you open, your insides would look mushy and red like mine.

Runt Raccoons are those hungry to steal freedom so it can be felt rather than advertised.  To eat it up and devour the air like a trumpet.

We are the cracks in the side walk.  Irrelevant.  Bored and brave.  Observers of the Human Hurricane, our eyes just as weak and involved as anyone else.

Everyone we meet is someone new to Love, to share Experience with, to watch the Hurt of Living, and Keep on Existing.  We drink and smoke and dance and create to find truth in Human Life.

We offer nothing but Love and Confusion.

Oi ! I’m Jeremiah Walton. For the past ~3 years I’ve been bopping around the U.S. between hitchhiking + rubber tramping, running traveling bookstore Books & Shovels + indie publisher Nostrovia! Press. My focus is in-person distribution at open mics + features + busking. Word of mouth is a fulfilling & feels to be a more intimate promotional process. I’ve featured at the NYC Poetry Festival + San Francisco Lit Crawl + Snoetry Cleveland + Beast Crawl Oakland + This Lil Lit Fest + street corners across the country. There’s a handful of my books floating around the country, but most recently is “From Here Til Utopia” (Ghost City Press). Raccoons + coyotes are my companions. Hope you dig the poems, much love, thank you❤
