    Poetry Autobiographical History of Art
    by Noah Levin


    Fire steals in seething moment. Passion
    is needed tool that must be expressed or
    urgent need to action that explodes skin
    in creativity.

    Violently create,
    spill soul and thought onto paper and
    create where there wasn?t once. OUT
    OF NOTHING -something that always
    existed in the future perhaps. Large
    swath of brush out of mind.
    All consuming.

    No one wants to pay me but I must.
    Spare some food into an artistic cup? I
    think music and write rhythm thought
    because god made me this way. Tap,
    tap, tap and spray my brains on paper
    for all to see as best I can abstract cut
    up of what I was trying to tell you.

    Multiple dimensions coming and going
    because black and white never existed
    except in cliff notes version of life.
    Hard experience grime under finger
    nails is the pushpull tug of war that is
    all time ticks on by and lost pages of
    book floats away but I keep on
    shouting. This is what I have damn it.

    Poetry Untitled Poem written on 2/8/09
    by Noah Levin

    Starring at silence. Don?t know
    what to do. Heart pulls in directions
    perhaps not understood yet seems
    predetermined in its own way.
    Inevitability seems to be direction
    flow that I can?t pull away or let self
    break on the rocky shores. Passive
    yet not fully content. Anger swells
    waves, puts fire under march
    towards what? Checked off a lot on
    that checklist now and that leaves
    this bag of goodies half empty.
    Open opportunity that perhaps I
    don?t understand; the pious hates
    downfall as just reward. Precipice
    without answers, the wind is empty
    engulfing sound yet I listen to the
    howl of the gale on the horizon all
    around me. Mutterings in my head:

    Hunger in spirit - More then this.

    Buffalo Quickie #42 King Otho, Thank You Jon

    thoughts A last winter's night in Portland, before Dusty heads off down to New Orleans. The show was over, but Dusty didn't want to stop. Gaylin danced along, leon hung out cool against the wall, walt wailed on the harmonica in the back, me, i picked up my camera, lit with the lonely light from passing cars, closing club, and the shell station across the street.

    Poetry I've chased my roots, back to flourcent lights and cash registers of westchester

    wondering about authenticity, arguing with a women who hides her craziness except since she's been comfortable enough to openly avoid my eye contact, about how sweet I can be.

    3 months seems to deem the time in which one can establish the farce that is a modern life, away from demons, possesing me in new york city, away from yearnings of the road, away from large white elephants, never forgetting, always feeding (other people, not itself)

    reminding me of conversations about open relations around a camp fire in colorado as the sun came up, and I met magic's horse before I heard him strum a string and the son-of-a-bitch farted as he walked past. Taunting me not to take it so seriously as we piled back on the elephant at 8 in the morning with signs of divorce in the redding hills behind the westward tee-pee rocks.

    Radios blast, and its a lost image. I write, it become untrue, and true again, like the tides I go insaine at the full moon.

    I've been reading tarot cards, a zen deck brought the group to its second, sacral chakra. Orange, like myself, creative and sexual. I wish to find a place to dance half naked tonight. Fully naked is not yet nessary. That can wait till we've been here for 6 months, and I'm fully insane, or sane, depending on how well this job goes and if I can get a hold of holding onto some money.

    Constumer service is no big deal, i'm a man of the people as I explain to them its cheeper and smarter in the econminy not to hire me for the job I'm here to do. You can do it better yourself if you apply yourself, how do you think I got this job in the first place?

    They told me I could be management in two years. I puked into my mouth and swallowed. I hope he didn't see it with his third eye. Working this long, drinking this much coffie, I wonder if he's capaable.

    We all used to be in media, but retail is steadier. We hate it just the same, but do it anyways.

    I produced public access and talk about god with my boss on the phone. THREE days in I was in charge, aware of what I had to do, until the cops busted the door down and I cried 'I'm innocent." They heard it before, I"ve said it before, but this time its true. Not inncoent of my relations, but of my realtions misdoings.

    Maybe its a trap. Maybe its for the better. Either way, I can still write.

    Either way, it's still right.

    I met a man on the road,cover by grey clouds, surronded by his will. I pulled him out of my body and he turned to translucent light. Evil has a way of leaving me impaired. Selfish and imparied.

    I've already started writing hikus at work.


    "Got a paying gig.
    Black pants, white shirt, red apron.
    Oh, I've been framed"

    He warned us. He oft spoke of the coming of Korg to the DS, and what poetic-o-audio possibilities it would mean. We would laugh, "Sure Dave, a Korg synthesizer on the DS. Like that'll ever happen." Well, lets just say that if you're gonna eat your hat, boil it in chicken broth and salt it well.

    thoughts The WSJ ran this article today:
    The Treatment of Bush Has Been a Disgrace
    What must our enemies be thinking?


    To which I responded in their forums. I now await my response to be approved by their moderators, but in the interest of not letting good words go to waste, here is my response reproduced for you dear reader:

    What does it say to our enemies, when instead of going after them, we use them as an excuse to steal their neighbor's oil? When we use them as an excuse to severely limit the rights and freedoms that make this country the shining beacon of hope of the whole world? When the administration reads predictably from the play book of fear and greed that benefit the few privileged instead of the needy masses? When time and time again, the "small government" types bloat government to scary levels? I believe that contrary to your argument, our treatment of this disgraceful leader has shown something to the world, that America is still a glorious place where those who claim power, cannot ultimately squelch the will of the masses. And that hope for a free and better world still can and must prevail.

    Yours,
    King Otho
