The Accumulation of Dwarf Thoughts / End Cops, Plz


Dwarf Thoughts

“The Mule is Burning” // I write on a Covid-19 quarantine digital comfort food at Fence Digital. Secretly work out some thoughts on socialist municipalism.



These walls are doors. These floors are floors. And everywhere ppl are working on wood.


Once again marveling at resilience and creativity of ppl in Buffalo in resisting oppression. This time, from the police. Demanding defunding of BPD, calling out the mayor’s incredibly weak slate of reforms, demanding justice for Myles Carter and Deyanna Davis, and making sure Meech Davis, Pito Rivera, India Cummings and other victims of racist, killer policing in Buffalo aren’t forgotten. Black Love Resists in the Rust could use your support.

I’m starting to hear some discussions about how cultural workers and institutions can act in solidarity not just now but for the long haul. Urgent, overdue.
