Say this poem, or parts of it, to those who are afraid of Donald Trump coming into presidency. Or indeed afraid of any politician and their agendas. I say, let’s focus on our own power. Let’s rise in the manner that will come natural when the revolution falls like a landslide and we have naught to do but fight for our own self-interest. Let’s cut our ties with the puppet masters, for we can dance better pulling our own strings. Let’s turn our back on authority which has only served to manipulate us thus far. Instead, let’s all take responsibility for the human race and wake the fuck up.
This poem was originally recorded for The Numinous in New York, the sweater I’m wearing is from their new clothing line. The video was filmed by my brother Marco Zaffino who’s experimental film and photography work can be found here.
