then one may ignore you
but as for me
I shall ensure that you never choke on your own vomit

1) Change in shifts

Mosquito (final)(Illustration Idunn Aker)

On the mirror
Of the eye
Was a mosquito
Recycling blood
The other pest
Trapped himself
Under a mosquito net
Freeing the mosquito
And the planet

2)  Why leave for?

chew this 3 with edit(Illustration friend A butchered by friend B)

You run from my side
claiming
I am too old for you
you blindly assert
I am too mature for you
What you have failed to understand
is that in my mind
my age is clearly not the problem,
for in fact
I have two extra hidden penises
so you need not be scared.
When one organ surpasses its use by date
and shows reluctance to function with full vigor
I simply and accurately amputate it
and substitute in another one until the primary grows back to full health
do you not think it selfish to require more than this
from a totally partially committed partner?

3) Embellishments and Establishments

Establishments(Illustration Mutan Tone)

An organisation
set-up to fight corruption
is hypocrisy in its deepest lair
Establishments and allegiances to them
are the gametes of personality fraud
The smiling prison guard who handcuffs himself to others opinions and behaviours
A painted iron blender that attempts to pulp iron bricks
birth and baptism on a well-maintained gravestone
The toothless snake who swallows its own tail in order to nourish itself
I’m not one to cast judgement on hypocrisy
as without it the sun never drives itself to dusk
Co-operation, the merging of ideas and feelings are the staples of the living
but orders and obedience are the hatchets of the dead

4) The clairvoyant

The most honest of all clairvoyants
entice me to live along side them
they’re never human by definition
or else they are deceiving us about one or the other
I prefer that an unknown entity doesn’t attempt to peer down my soul
or else I’d feel victim to perversion
so don’t inform me if you’re attempting such on me
I guess it’s not prudent to try it on others either
unless they’re already consensually naked
if I ever wake up sailing through a dreamy open-mind
I head off to try to interpret geographical locations
if there’s a gentle introverted breeze
I walk out to the beach
and observe the future of death and life
the sand
minced up specimens long departed from the realm of the living
cram themselves together devoid of any unison
polluted in far greater density than any metropolis of the future
no luft for growth of individuality
stepping over the cemetery of stagnation is the shoreline
and beyond it
lie those who have mastered isolation
and lived its merits
but my greatest respect goes to amphibians
who gather and mix the profound with timely light and jovial socialisation

5) The crack in the middle of the sky part one

I’ve been told to eliminate all trespassers
on my property
with more legs than two
Fly swats
Rat sack
Whipper snippers
a chemical inquisition that dilates my pupils sweeping clouds under the carpet
There’s no sanity in my sanity
boredom weaves looms out of rubber tubes
nauseous I kick open the door and make an entrance to the earth

6) The crack in the middle of the sky part two

Crack-in-the-sky(Illustration Line F. Andersen)

I walk to the perimeter of the lake
and look up
I notice a crack in the middle of the sky
The sky throws me birds
I drop the fear of being defecated on and they sing me the fables of distant lands
I pocket it for my grandchildren
I laugh at the coward shadow of my former existence
The sky throws me bats
I drop the fear of being hung upside down
They radio my paranoia inside out generating empathy
I dance with the coward shadow of my former existence
The sky throws me a mermaid
My scales fly away exposing nothing but light
I undo my collar and expose myself
The crack in the middle of the sky materialises
in the form of the eve of time

7) Blow it all up

martine not a fuck(Illustration Martine Magdalena)

I was in my tent last night
listening to cicadas
Obviously discontent to be where they were
they put on a poor performance
I had all the amo to write a proper poem
but then you distracted me by entering and undressing
The cicadas acknowledged that they were losing the battle
of attention
so they began to arc up
exposing their breasts
and becoming more audible
but then you upped the ante
and imitated them
you turned them up
so loud
that their voice-boxes spewed out onto the grass
congratulations
fucker
you not only rooted my concentration
but you also floored an army of cicadas
There was no poem yesterday
and worse still
only garbled syllables today.
Want to come to my tent again tonight?
Please?
Together we may be able to blow up the entire world.

Yours sincerely … x

8) Can I have a sandwich Freddy?

Can I have a sandwich
Freddy?
Sure
Kick back and expose your toe hairs to the fan
All the labour is completed by robotic rats
and the waste
is devoured by robotic rats
I am going to celebrate my one hundred and eightieth birthday tomorrow
and fiddle with the cartridge on my nintendo respirator
The unemployment rate here is one hundred and three percent
I live on the seven hundred and fifty-second floor
in the ghetto all by myself on a thirty acre property
with omnipresent binary bots binding my balls

Can-I-Have-A-Sandwich(Illustration Line F. Andersen)

9) The referees whistle

I don’t necessarily believe that structure
has a positive or negative constitution
how can a leaf be good or bad
or a rock cod be evil or saintly
or a horse be corrupt or trustworthy
The most narrowing blinkers one can ever don is to pick a team and leach onto it
And I am first to admit that I walk short-sighted with ear wax but no pom-poms

Mine is the team that nobody backs
the one on the bottom of the ladder that challenges all bigger than it
continually being mowed down but never brought to its knees

I switch sides after witnessing the winners cheating and swindling hundreds of times
being subjected to years of water drip torture by governing forces
being present at too many ceremonies where tears flowed from behind sunglasses
observing that most politicians had shares in the funeral parlours
after being knocked-out by thugs who bought their gloves from off-duty police
Although we are trash and have no formal victories
We play on a different pitch to where the action appears to be
As the referees have concentrated venom in their whistles
capable of vaporising all of your dreams

10)  No look pass

I was fifteen and a few months or something so I went to meet up with a couple of mates in the park and shoot some baskets after school.

I had my headphones in and was dribbling past an old man on the park bench who grunted very loudly.

I switched off the music and turned around to see what was going on.

I asked him if everything was OK

He said “The best advice I can give to you is take your basketball and fuck off”

Dismissing him for a headcase I turned to leave and make my way back up to the court.

Then a rant commenced which paralysed me on the spot.

In ninety-three years on this ball of dust I never witnessed these pathetic times
You hug your ball like a cold sore but you can’t even shoot in time
That chick over there
locked in a vacant stare
one playing like a rabbit in the sand
cannot fathom leaving her partner’s hand
one bonehead tied to his dog
the other one carved into a log
Yesterday’s newspaper
Mobile phone minx
Beer bat
Coffee chameleon
Inflatable rocking chairs
Political hamsters
Moon eels and beached submarines
Hollowed out coconut hats
Water eggs and pistols
Hydroponic koala claw
Octagonal dildos
Locust repellent
Tomato blades
Erasable white board magnets
Edible disco balls
Corroded snags

He continued without blinking,

“Nobody ever tries dropping everyone and thing and existing”

I had to go to the toilet anyway, so I put the ball on the bench and took slow steps away taking deep breaths as I went. I reached a tree, hid behind it and pissed.

On the way back I noticed something had changed. Either the grass was very long or my sandals had grown shorter.

When I returned to the bench, the concrete in front of it was vandalised with black spray paint.

It read:

There was never any poetry here, things are straightforward and
you are very lucky. The first thing I told you, as I said, was the best thing you could have done.

There was no old man or ball.

11) Preparing for night shift

I put on a bloated jacket
surrendering mobility in my upper limbs
they are not required
especially northwards of the neck
I am now a pig-man on a raw onion diet
even though the scales indicate famine
work beckons me out the door of the apartment
she throws a saucepan at me
I catch it with the back of my head
I never agreed to participate in such a fast paced sport
My brow turns humid
I turn and look her in the eyes
I blow her a gentle breeze
far too weak to soften two boulders
she repeats her mantra
today I found an immunisation against hypnotism
she repeats her mantra
If you don’t come back to bed you don’t come back
she repeats her mantra
If you walk through that door it transforms into a wall
But the rent is not yet paid
I walk through the door to prevent the landlord from vaporising the roof
The back of my head catches another saucepan
The snow is crunchy and homeless outside
On the way to work to pay off two broken saucepans

12) Extend it

There are some out there with the will to master gymnastics
They will persistently intrigue
at the risk of broken spines
conjuring heartbreak from the illusionary hat
they preserve a dynamic dynasty of movement
whilst successfully deflecting attention
from the displaced air
We have all observed their victory
of aerial conquest
but none have witnessed their landing
in the rankest swamps
where crocs simultaneously take out their knees
as they sink into an infinite death-roll
To stretch the trampoline down to record lows
naturally implies an impending rebound
to combustible heights
Although no other gig has validity when compared to the dual act
where one who is already in a precarious position
extends a hand from the trapeze and catches another in free-fall

13) You Sleep

You Sleep ferdig(Illustration Idunn Aker)

The benevolence of the sub-conscious
is an autobahn
to bliss
the cold evaporates
stress extinguishes itself
visual fortifications without accountability
even mozzie bites swell but without register
falling
into flight
the fruit of tomorrow
is harnessed
by an unseen generator
that exists
far away from the co-ordinates
of space and time

14) cloaked darts

martine2(Snap of exhibit by Martine Magdalena)

A form of old school art

which cloaks a fleet of modern darts

imbibe subversion without warning

wake in gutters in the morning

flat white, latte, cappuccino,

what variation human seagull?

I couldn’t give a shit you bore

I take whatever wriggles raw

dead, alive,

rabid or tame

coffee and milk

with fancy name

versus ripping up your lawn

but yet you can’t resist return

If you can’t understand what’s sewn

then do more push-ups til you’re torn

the runes inscribed beneath a page

or coming plagiarized on stage

tongue hanging desperate for a fix

now comes the joker with new tricks

go to work and earn your wage

I bind your legs in the golden cage

15) Shit hot (a very good poem)

Shit hot (final)(Illustration Idunn Aker)

It’s 41 degrees

therefore it’s hot,

shit hot,

shit and hot.

I used to vote

in a ballot-box

for 45 degrees

when I was a kid,

I’d watch the geriatrics

melt into concrete,

then I’d get out my gumboots

and dance.

I’d jump into any body of water

head first

I’d even jump straight into rocks

because I was indestructible in the vitals,

shit hot.

This morning a dragon flew into town.

Nobody gave a shit,

or prevented it’s arrival,

because firstly it gave shade,

and secondly it was shit but hot.

I told it not to breath,

because it’s a total fire ban day,

they said on the radio,

on air

con.

The dragon kidnapped a child,

and flew away when I was napping,

nobody tried to stop the beast,

they let the child go,

because they hated him

because he thought he was

shit hot.

16) You know as well as I do

chew this tree (edited)(Illustration Friend A butchered friend B)

There’s enough shrubbery

in Australia

to teach all of you a lesson in humility.

The oil riggers

I’ll dump you on a desert cactus,

politicians,

your reservation

is next to the lyre bird’s nest.

Vegans,

parachute to Greenland

with a bow and arrow

fishing rods and sand-worms.

Loggers,

grab a toothpick,

and straight to the bonsai daffodil field.

Conservationists,

isolated in the middle of the jungle,

with a suitcase and fluoro vest.

Immigration officers,

my good friends,

on the bottom of the pacific ocean,

with bowling balls strapped to your testes.

Fish,

I give you star fish,

star fish,

you get a wish.

Poets,

locked in the cellar

whilst the paws recede

over into the next barrel.

Opinion?

It’s easier to be a chief,

categorising everyone antagonistically,

resting on the delete button,

hiding behind a computer screen.

17) Money

Is a false quote”

18) Money

A dog and his balls are soon parted”

19) Threesome versus el Don Judgey

Two chooks clucked towards a sleeping dingo,

pecking left and right three smiles collided.

Two chicks waltzed up to a shoddy flamingo,

being a humble being just being,

he didn’t know with whom he’d sided.

Two licks soothed a bulging ripened mango,

and let the juices flow from deep within.

Two peeps glowed above the bedsheets,

excitement rode a wave out on a whim.

Three freaks rolled around the sandy beaches,

married to the driving pulse of earth,

Three laws claimed a different tale,

interpreted by who they wish to serve.

Three books scribed in different egos,

Three lives full of lively songs,

judges nagged and bashed us round the ears,

boredom’s hoards still preaching ‘right’ from ‘wrong’.

20) Where’s the hierarchy?

Roving round a contemplation of boxed-up issues

far too complex for me to prize open,

I collapse on my back and suck in the sun.

Thanks for nothing but negligible flare old sun,

bound in bondage of millions

a cog in a galaxy

disgrace of a mayor.

The sun felt the grievance from lower ranks,

it lay on its back and sucked in the galaxy.

You hole of a galaxy sheds nothing but darkness

taxing my warmth whilst diffracting my vision.

Your body is stagnant with limited movement

crawling to Virgo

you lecherous scum.

Virgo, feeling agitated through a rumour of impending complaint,

lays on its back and sucks in the universe.

Universe of dark matter,

expanse of null,

you’re a scam of a business producing jack-shit.

Your health has corroded, expanding, contracting,

terminal condition, you may as well quit.

In summary old hob-nob,

you’re backward and lonely,

no partner or friendship

in a multiverse of x.

I stood up and felt queasy as something was taking place inside me.

My bladder was chatting irreverently.

Human you slim-ball,

I slave without break,

and in turn you award me with nothing but piss.

One of these days I’ll embarrass you badly,

when you peacock,

on a first date,

in a restaurant,

I’ll hiss.

Inside a bladder a group of punk cells popped up pipping.

You lock us in

you pin us down

but if we revolt

explosion rocks your town

we whip you here

we cut you there

drunken orgy everywhere.

Bored of all the chanting and anger, I got up and went down to the beach to play frisbee with my neighbour’s dog. How did you pass the summer,

creep.

21) under-board


Calling out from a paralised city
that lies victim from an infection loitering on a roster from nine to five
The prerequisite for a human who feels love
was to respond to an SOS at all times
It is more than a con artist sticking to strange clothes
or a marsupial bleeding from a three nostril nose
It’s existence which currently lumbers against fraternity
as the depth
is no more than what hovers
under a one meter springboard

22) The cob house (Disjointed or nomad)

nomad(Illustration Line F. Andersen)

A regular suburban dwelling,

standard low security jail.

Mansion with tennis court,

isolation chamber well padded.

Tent,

monogamous heterosexual couples.

Tee-pee,

orgy under the pretext of spirituality.

mud-brick house,

natural birthing ground for rodents.

train station,

very effective wake-up alarm system.

Beach,

door mat for pre-dawn joggers.

Mountain,

may you join the pile.

the fireflies at night

fuel the nuclear sunrise in the morning

Tai-chi on grass

regresses to Kung-fu under lights

A kennel of pure dynamite

scratches ground of great resistance

a long production line existence

or an ephemeral epic gale

23) put in the point

regrouping unsuccessfully on the border of state at a time all external interactions seem as foreign as what’s beneath the skin hail strikes the body possibly piercing it but you remain completely ambivalent as everything and all lacks a point collapsing towards the ground a previously unacquainted person catches you rising with revitalised strength the motivation of all is simply to reciprocate the handle before the angle grinder descends

24) Talents

If there’s one talent that I’ve nurtured consistently in my life to the point of honourable and quasi-legendary status, it’s fare evasion.

I’ve gate crashed buses, trams, trains, cop wagons, go-carts, horse and carts, ferries, toll roads, I hitched a limo once in Switzerland for a laugh and the list proceeds and will proceed until the oil dries out and nobody gets further plagued by arterial blockages.

Despite my ability in shaizer chronology

what’s private is public

and what eats cat-fish is the law

who gives three opened-legged wall papers

the freedom to breathe leisure

I had a dream

I fucked the pope

I tied him up with a rope

There is not an incessant lie

of the four possible brands of soap

I am an anti-dialectic criminal

apparently

who loves all (at times)

without too many barriers

standing tall to a vicious lion without conscience

tortured by the cape of circumspect logic

I was conceived in pornographic visions

and like you all will end in all.

25) Hole in the fence

Farms

push time

to the edge

of the fence

irrelevant technological shifts

by urban roosters

gently repelled

by those who sustain

their cocky anthems

middle class professionals

two car families

vote green

whilst

self-sustaining

corked-hat rowzabout

votes with hand and skin

26) A little wind

Ash and hot winds

are all it takes to undermine years of honest work

Ash and hot winds

are all it takes to set a region on fire

Ash and hot winds

are all it takes to place lives in the lurch

Ash and hot winds

banksia seeds open whilst distraught parents frantically search

Ash and hot winds

are the mediums of obnoxious and destructive rumours

Ash and hot winds

victim trembles whilst mob chants with the ruthlessness of tumours

Ash and hot winds

the banter forces one more to the streets

Ash and hot winds

the anti-cosmic place where no one ever meets

27) Let them remain in line

Leg)(Illustration Idunn Aker)

Under

the table

there’s a knee

that only

stretches to 180

degrees

and only when it’s

under obligation

through reflex.

It’s connected

despite protest

to another

organism

half of which

lies

above a desk

gathering dust.

On occasion

even dust mites

require more luxurious accommodation

so shut-up

and let it remain in peaceful hibernation.

After all,

I’ve never volunteered my body in entirety

to a charitable cause for invisible bugs

have you?

Didn’t think so,

so why the fuss?

28) DEATH

Distraught

DEATH

abstract

inconceivable when passes

DEATH

natures winds and faunas chorus

boom

with great intent

DEATH

a shock

that shatters rocks of calmness

DEATH

DEATH

DEATH

monks deceive themselves to reach nirvana

before they wish to live on earthly rent

DEATH

an eerie

shady unknown player

DEATH

You’ll never again

together laugh or dance or cry

DEATH

audaciously

erases all the pages

DEATH

DEATH

DEATH

Vacuum of gloom and greed

that siphons the spirit

of its victims neighbours

even nabbing chunks

of those who barely view it floating by

DEATH

The light

that busts our own deceptions

DEATH

The martian truth

which sets egos alight

DEATH

Inevitable

spontaneous insurrection

DEATH

DEATH

DEATH

Censored constantly

throughout the ages

sews the deepest knowledge

amongst the intergenerational

crop of sight.

29) Religious fervor and the anti-poem.

A boy had four sticks

three of which he sold

The ultimate one he used

to beat his dad into shape.

He snapped the stick over his dad’s back

destroying both stick and back.

In his prudence,

and through his dad’s will,

he inherited a tree with one hundred and eighty-four sticks attached to it.

As the boy was a good man,

he carried his injured dad to bed,

where he lay down.

He wisely broke a stick off the tree he inherited,

and beat a passer-by out of shape.

Upon submission,

he generously gave the passer-by employment as his trusty servant,

bidding him reliance over the care-taking of his aging father.

The passer-by washed and ironed the father,

for the next four hundred and eight years,

which constituted the term of his life.

But the boy had a grand vision so he did not pause for rest.

He broke off five more sticks from the tree out yonder,

he stripped the rough bark off the tallest of the planks,

leaving only the smooth un-splintered wood,

and placed the edited stick up his rectum.

The other four sticks,

he strategically bound with the bark from the former stick,

which was now inside him,

converting them into nun-chucks,

before he bowed,

faced the sky,

then hit the town.

30) Up in the lock-up

Interrogator:

Can you please jump up for a second, there are plenty of microbes being squashed between you and the ground. I mean how do you know your rear isn’t trampling a genetic spore that’s discovered the evolutionary mating short-cut to evolve into a Mandela some time in the next four million years?

How much air have you swallowed today cobbler?

Your wind pipe seems to be laying around sun-baking on un-entittled break whilst there is a possibility that outside of these walls fourteen Indian elephants are drowning on the foot of the Gobi desert, playing monthly tribute to the beached whales who perished during their roles in service.

After all, I saw you the other day jaywalking through a green light

Human:

“Eh?”

Rat:

“Your shoelace was undone and it all fell over onto the nature strip. I have all the time in the world to keep you locked in, so sign here please.”

Cat:

“What makes you think I’m not enjoying the cell. Remember, you as a worker, put yourself here forty hours a week through your own will. You are here in the prison because deep down you believe you are dangerous and require restraint, you’re sick. I don’t mind, I like sick people. That’s why I’m well. They are the most interesting of all of them. I worked in an asylum for a few years to pay my bar tabs during uni. I won’t sign the sheet, merely because then you may release me. I like you being around here, and if you feel you need counseling I’ll do my best to assist you.”

31) Where is the road?

Don’t get ahead of yourself.

Water is not the greatest drink on planet earth,

it is one of the most inferior.

It belongs to the class of people who drink it.

The drink I would install on the highest shelf,

laps ahead of the finest whiskeys

and oceans above the most exquisite selection of champagnes

is what precipitates on top of the earth.

There are reasons why birds volunteer themselves to certain formations

just as there are reasons why certain fish power upstream

whereas others dwell close to the floor.

I have always understood why carnivorous plants would choose to welcome flesh,

but it plagues me when mosquitoes elect to become extroverted.

Likewise, water is not a favourite drink of mine,

as I have never mastered the routine,

I have no license,

I had no tutors.

The only drink that deserves to be filled in the chalice

in the epicenter of the garden,

is the variety of water that flows down a pristine river,

whose banks are so green they put bulls to sleep.

It can never be caught in a bottle and drunk on dry land.

It only exposes its true flavour to those who enter the river respectfully with bare feet

and drink through a chalice of cupped hands.

That is why it is the only drink I would put in the cupped chalice.

As the pleasure derived through the procedure,

and the water in the chalice,

reflect the faces of everyone who is or has ever been.

32) Interlude (Grønland police lock-up)

There I found myself in fetal position, clutching at a thin blue blanket, trying to rest on the right side of my body as the left side was still stinging and caked in a layer of thick dry blood. Bricked into the tiny cell in the bricked in police lock up.

I had to try once more, it had been about two hours I guess, but I couldn’t know for sure as the clock which hung outside the first sheet of double layered glass on the thing that vaguely resembled a window was paused at 4:52 while it mockingly blocked out some of the little natural light the prisoner was entitled too.

Maybe the robot had gone home to oil her hinges and possibly someone else in the universe with an ounce of empathy had commenced shift to broadcasting the grunts into the end of the police station intercom button.

I pushed, full well knowing the automated answers to the questions I was about to pose.

¨Hi there’

I said in the friendliest tone possible for me to muster up considering the situation.

‘What do you want’

Blurted my captor.

‘I was wondering if I could have a little bit of milk, because I lost a lot of blood last night’

I queried.

‘WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU! ARE YOU STUPID?! You already had your milk, it’s one per person do you understand’

Continued the dominatrix.

‘You will talk again to the police detective when THEY need to talk to you, UNDERSTAND!’

I decided that I was happy that the creature I was just conversing with was on the other side of wall, with a mound of micro-crap and cable in between us because I guessed that by the way she talked, her insides must have been in the advanced stages of the decay process. I concluded that if she hadn’t combusted yet, the toxic gases in her innards must have conveniently been vented out somewhere, so logically at best she must have had terminal bad breath, which, in the weakened state I was in, may just knock me out for the count. I knew as well that there was no point in trying to challenge her on any level, the stench was sticking. It would be a waste of energy to bring storm to a creature who had the predatory resources to survive the asteroid hit 66 million years ago that wiped out all other non-avian dinosaurs.

I lay back down on the blood stained plastic mattress, my luxurious bit of furnishing, meditating to the serenade of a fellow captive who was losing a kick-boxing bout against a quintuple reinforced metal door somewhere up the hall. The hospitality extended to you in isolation cells is never complete without the intermittent gongs of neighbours broken big toes announcing their presence.

However, somehow, being trapped in the same pitiful conditions as they are, you strongly feel their pain and wonder why it is all happening to them, and how have they reached the point of spasming and lashing out at everything for the purpose of self-harm.

Although in rare moments of clarity it was possible to bite through my ego and pathetic self-pity, and admit to myself that this unharmonious situation didn’t arise not due to the fault of any workers within the lock-up. The fault is not with the dominatrix, who most likely manages to whip her empathy back up when she gets back to her household in the company of her loving partner and children. Nor is it with my new mate who probably now has webbed feet. The torture has no one owner, but in fact we are all culpable, as ironically, it’s operator is isolation, a feeling that has never throughout history been so intense as in the ‘modern’ period, where our new toys have shredded community, and our neighbours have been reduced to financial digits.

Even over the microscopic time frame of a little more than a decade, since the tragic conception of social media and mobile phones, free-spirited adventure and openness to learn from whoever co-inhabits your immediate vicinity has been sacrificed for pedantic plans to meet with those

who think, act and groom in a similar manner to ourselves. We have collectively become more interested in stalking the lives of phantoms over the other side of the planet than interaction with those within our community.

These media vampire gods sink their fangs into community whilst performing fellatio on it, destroying its natural structure whilst sucking out anything that may give birth to a future generation with greater social abilities than a scaly cold-blooded bot.

Now, as the lady behind the intercom, the gentlemen with the steel toe fetish, and myself had fulfilled our lifelong ambition of inhabiting a high security property all by ourself without the need to share it, we seemed to have figured out that dream accommodation was not all it was hyped up to be.

I tripped on my face muffling myself with judgments and internal commentaries on terrains and characters. That is what landed me in the lock-up initially. Maybe I still haven’t unshackled myself in entirety. I query to myself whether there remains another bridge to perpetual freedom, an evasion of conflicts both internal and external through the face of walking whatever I consider poetry rather than writing and dreaming it. Bypassing the game of vermin and felines.

Fold 1)

Are you honestly still worried about wrinkles?

You’re about to break me out in panic by

confusing me into not knowing whether or not

they misinformed me by telling me that worrying

creates wrinkles …

hmm …Anyhow now’s not the right time to worry

because here is a map which will give you simple

directions to arrive at a world without worries

or wrinkles,

a recipe to a world without time,

a timeless world.

… and it’s only just a matter of time before we

all arrive there to stay!

Fold 2)

Complete three miniature hops forwards over

the backwards,

so you can control the clock’s

hands with the make-shift magnets in your mind.

To arrive at the land where time doesn’t exist,

the steps are so small and from the moment you

jump out of the blocks,

the wind assistance is

chronically amicable.

Dreaming through an

aether spells the end of all hallucinations.

Presently we’re all queuing behind each other,

in a circle,

waiting for someone to break rank and bring us

to the first station.

The hardest part of any journey is always to

emerge from the doorway,

picking up the backpack which is crammed with

the full belief that you can reach a distant

undefined destination whilst enjoying the

pleasure of the epic quest along the way.

The shredding what you formally believed was

logic.

Fold 3)

The first and hardest of three hops is to arrive

at a world free of borders,

a borderless world.

The Custom’s control only permits us to enter a

borderless earth when we’ve managed to dispel

our irrational fears.

The simplest and quickest path into an earth

without borders is through the breathing

technique.

All we need to learn is to inhale and meditate

on the experience which flows free with every

breath.

Vesicles commence the natural expulsion of our

exhaust,

toxic paranoia.

Acceptance will remain within us as the by-

product of the reaction,

this is the beauty and

the higher natural function of the invisible

organs in our body.

When we have matured enough through worldly

experience to accept ourselves for what we

are,

human beings …

Then we will fully acknowledge that borders

serve no purpose to us.

Fold 4)

The second step into humanity is to arrive in a

world free of money,

a moneyless world.

This world only comes true through a deeper

level of love and empathy.

A true love for yourself and all others out there.

A love that permits you to lose concern for

other people’s judgment.

A love that deems all people as equals,

and all grudges irrelevant.

The main reason why people cling to finance is

that they use it to define themselves,

they are not comfortable enough with themselves to

love all people as equals.

In a moneyless world there is no need to show

off at the expense of the other.

A moneyless world is a world of love that molds

you into someone only concerned for the

wellbeing of others, even more so than the

well-being of yourself.

You arrive at a point where you are convinced

that everyone is inherently “good”,

and that you should trust them.

This in turn converts you

into a “good” person.

A “bad” person is only “bad” because he or she is

fearful that there are other “bad” people out

there.

Someone who is fearful cannot share

materials, time, skills or love.

A love that is the polar opposite of the monster

of insecurity that draws you into lust for

objects over humans,

making you want to swindle people at every possible opportunity.

Love is a confidence that lets you understand

that you need nothing more than other humans,

and they need you equally.

This allows you to give whatever you can,

however you can,

and

accept whatever is given,

and at no time feel

indebted or owed.

It becomes difficult for you to own anything

when there are others out there with

unfulfilled needs.

You feel ashamed to don luxury clothing when

children are still out there who have never had

clothes on their back their entire lives.

Entering a moneyless world is only possible

when you realise that you’re already too rich

without possessions.

When you look to live more humbly,

it makes no sense to amass more.

If the society in which you live has matured past

the self-conscious stage of puberty where its

members feel the need to prove themselves to

others,

then money is out of place,

just as training wheels are out of place on an adult’s

bike.

Money has now been outgrown and removed.

Fold 5)

The final step to immortality takes you into a

world where time does not exist,

a timeless world.

This is the most incomprehensible step in the

backwards modern era in which we live.

It can only be achieved after passing through a

borderless and then moneyless society.

The key to arrival here is perception.

A keen perception that allows us to immerse ourselves

fully in nature and observe the perfection of

what’s already present.

When you really feel the earth, you realise the

importance of every plant and animal.

After delving passionately and deeply into a

trance by marveling over its complex

brilliance,

exhilaration comes with the

knowledge that you are blessed by being part

of the Grand One.

To love nature you first have to locate it.

You can’t get to this step without firstly loving

all humans.

You can’t pass to a timeless paradise before

passing through a borderless and moneyless

world.

It’s contradictory to profess to love nature and

hate humans.

A true love for nature comes logically through firstly understanding and

therefor loving oneself.

If you do not love yourself you are incapable of loving others.

How can you love nature if you have never even

located it?

You, and all other humans,

are an incarnation of nature.

As soon as you fully realise that people have

immersed and engulfed themselves in nature

since they arrived,

you lose all your fear and

enjoy meditating amongst the lush green of the

forests “alone”,

dancing with scorpions on the sands of barren deserts,

swimming through rivers and lakes

plays out as naturally as washing your face.

The ants and mosquitos become your cousins,

and the wolves and crocodiles your brothers,

aphids and ferns become your spiritual advisors and the rocks

take on the texture of marshmallows.

The oceans are formed out of the tears of bliss

of all your brothers and sisters,

be they animal vegetable or mineral,

irrespective of whether they exist in the present form or they

existed in the former ancient times.

The warmer ocean currents function like your arteries,

constantly flowing with or without your

awareness,

the cooler ocean trenches are still as connected to you as your veins.

Earthquakes punctuate your speech,

their exclamatory echoes allow you to hear

yourself a little louder.

You perceive volcanic eruptions as the natural orgasms that are

there to bare witness to the power of you and

the rest of the grand one,

they fertilise the ground with pride.

Everything is part of you,

and the barrier between your human form and the universe

dissipates into air.

You don’t worry about your

physical death as you continue on through

everyone and everything that is still present.

You understand that life expectancy is no indication of the success of a society.

Life expectancy is a figure that demonstrates society’s selfishness.

Citizens of a future timeless world studied the ancient societies of

now that dwelled on such statistics,

bemused that they had all failed to compute a more

important figure known as expectancy of life.

Expectancy of life is the amount of time that

life is expected to survive on your planet.

It is directly related to life’s proximity to its

environment.

It’s a figure that began to reach a higher value

when people used to nurture each plant as they did their own children.

The figure grew steadily when indigenous populations were prevalent as there was little direct threat that life would be euthanized by its own

environment…

but then something happened.

If you are not worried about aging,

as you have become aware that you are part of an

indestructible universe that is already old,

then for you time has stopped and you’ve

reached immortality.

If you care with great passion for your great-great-grandchildren

who are unborn,

you enter a state of bliss,

and care more about your contribution to sustaining

life on the whole than the psychotic fear of

your own death.

Welcome to a timeless world.

Ston witnessed a dreamer’s crucifixion on the barbs of the real

world, and his tears flowed out of the cave and into the forest.

Mop was wrenched limb from limb although his song was

carried to immortality via the hearts of the living.

34) Empire of thoughts –

(written in 2012 whilst walking a continent for a year and a half, boycotting cash and cars)

Can my friends and I construct an empire built out of the microscopic building blocks of humanity, our thoughts?

Even if we do succeed, how would it be useful?

One thing is for certain,

it would be less destructive than empires built out of lack of thought.

It wouldn’t bomb innocent children who haven’t even had the chance to learn to speak or walk,

and justify their murder in the name of justice.

It wouldn’t deceive millionaires into believing that their life will be fuller with the acquisition of more objects,

when in fact it’s their excess of possessions which drown them and prevent them from making contact with other humans.

It wouldn’t mould us into callous monsters who ignore the cries of starving children,

because they have a different colour skin than ourselves.

It wouldn’t restrict the miraculous works of top scientists,

engineers

and medical practitioners,

and prevent their advances from reaching the areas where they are most needed.

It wouldn’t restrict the top scientists,

engineers

and medical practitioners

by preventing them from working on themselves and advancing in the areas they most need to.

I burnt a passport or two,

so what,

it was a fraudulent activity.

It only started another fire on a planet where billions of fires have been previously started,

nothing groundbreaking.

If the thought trader was cold,

then why wasn’t the internal thermostat cranked up a few degrees.

Pissing (and maybe even shitting) is another activity that has been done for centuries with even more frequency than fire lighting.

One should piss (and maybe even the shit) all over the Louvre,

but so what?

People have pissed (and maybe even shat) all over mountains,

seas,

nuclear reactors,

in barns,

and possibly even on the moon.

So when it happens ignore it.

Start quoting yourself and your friends,

they are the most relevant,

because they live in the world that we know is real.

Quote Sheik Spear not Shakespeare.

Trying not to participate in any system you don’t believe in is living in whatever you believe,

and hence believing in living.

The feather of vulnerability and shame which uncomfortably tickles a person apparently surviving on charity and good will disintegrates upon contact with the doona of gratitude worn with every meal.

35) The wrong carnation

Having walked Europe from top to bottom I only ever bumped into one cliff that is occupied by a fleet of vultures.

I hope I am short-sighted or miscalculated,

because when I eventually switch-off I’d like to be recycled in the way of least practical bother.

On this beach I witnessed something that defies nature,

something counter-intuitive:

resembling an octopus who shakes your hands then releases them without the will to obtain a deal through coercion.

The thorn that blunted itself on its own skin in a protest that discipline had been overemphasised by the powers that were.

A fasting mouse,

a subtle rock,

a cat and dog in arms wed by a pragmatic sword-fish.

I witnessed a vulture who loved the dead to the extent that he loved his life,

he circled for some minutes as if in contemplation,

then nose-dived into rocks,

deliberately plummeting into the next dimension.

metropolis(Illustration Mutan Tone)

36) Splat!

Give them enough time,

and they all fall like fruit off the mouldy slack-line.

On the flip side,

some somersault through the air,

before the splat,

other’s don’t even wait,

flipping themselves inside out,

not understanding,

that even futuristic prickly-pears,

require some sort of unofficial mulch.

The most inspiring to me,

are those with pretty eyes,

that hang four to five hundred meters away from their sockets,

with a vision so pronounced,

that even as they descend through the smog,

they visualise others in ascent

to the left of the see-saw.

37) Disciplinarians built the plank

The most honest disciplinarians force themselves to walk their own plank

and the plank don’t laugh

as they sink through the brine of their compulsion to control

and the sea-level don’t rise

when their toes break the surface

and their hair gets wet

with their self-concocted paranoia of a novel creative being

and the sharks don’t bite at putrid flesh turned rotten

by innards so dank

that they don’t care but to crank

and the man don’t weep

because the man lost his brain

as his belly’s been bended by an institution’s name

that neither he nor the plank comprehend or fortify

a fictitious concave life

under the pomp of a lie

and the most callous and absurd

is that his crew feels nothing

only another overboard

now to the first mate they start sucking

38) Warming a dinner

Add water and stir,

stir, stir, stir, stir,

and add water,

then stir until your arm drops off,

empty the pot and scrape out the bottom,

chew it a little,

then refrigerate it,

even freeze it if you’ve got the gadgets,

laminate it like a five-year old’s drawing,

then microwave it like a five year old roast,

or chuck it in a pan then burn it like five year old warts,

throw a chair or two on top,

then a table,

and transform your kitchen to a furnace,

exit the pile of futility,

and go hide in a river,

put your hands in your groin,

and start screeching whilst jumping up and down playing the frog,

when the novelty wears thin,

modestly swim a little,

then walk and swim until you sleep where you sleep,

and wake on the frost to a morning,

where the ground steams with ground,

and the ferns toast the clouds.

This was the most potent curry I ever cooked”

she screamed with sincerity and contentment,

pointing to a burnt down shack on top of an abandoned hill,

snowed under by isolation, repetition and bureaucracy.

39) Desert swords:

Interdependence
Is a parallel concept
to the unobservable force that binds objects
of mass in a stable orbit across an undefinable journey
which is lengthier than words
Independence and purity are midday mirages
in the desert of Tuesday that forgot about Monday
dehydrated by the cactus excluded from fun and play
Can someone go announce to the deluded goldfish
who swims round in circles to the stroke of his premise
that he created his own water
stoned into his own pond
that the lady who rants about her self-made fortune
requires him
for a business meeting
on the outside of the cactus
on the spikes of the desert swords
which cut larger than words
because unless they both grow real and merge with the hoards
they still don’t find play

40) Ladder faces

LadderFaces900(Illustration Line F. Andersen)

It has been pissing,

into the left hemisphere of my brain

since before I learned to walk

from about the time I realised how to flick on the dial

that half’s pickled now

oh well

at least I lived

so forgive me

if I vent it by crapping out my mouth

onto your perfect white dress

because although I’m lame and without a viable excuse

it’s still worse with this generation

they hook ‘em up to weak lights and skinny beats from birth

then decapitate them cleanly at the first legal opportunity

and install a ladder from the neck upwards

they put titles on it

doctor smith professor mutambo-alifali general life-in-boots

then scramble up each other’s ugly ladder faces

for 60 years

until their heads are trampled in by each other

and one dimensional

then they retire to a pension in the form of a heart attack

before ascension of but one rung of the imaginary ladder

gasping for life whilst wondering when they actually lived

42) To whomever reads this

To whomever reads this,

A flower smelt

and sounded to me like a heavenly chute

expelling all hate from my body

it’s scent sang a lullaby

of peace and love over the eternal fragrant fields of beauty.

And that’s my perspective.

Poems over.

Why didn’t you interject my monologue?

You infinite chronic corkscrew dickhead.

43) Politics

skunk(Illustration Skunük)

The cult belief of desperadoes lacking nous, fobbing around in a futile religious search for someone who is prepared to grab their necks, poison their brains, and lead them away from their human existence and onto the treadmill at the apex of the cliff.

44) Power

The ability to curb the sick lust to control others

45) Language

BONUS TRACK!!!!!

Don’t feed the Owl (border control)

img140(Illustration Sarah Eve Cajayon Paulsen)

Throw up the bars and block the way

There lives a monster the other side of the cage

He takes chunks out of flesh and shits out hay

His dick can attack from across the bay

Throw up the bars and block the way

He’ll spit shingles and typhoid on ya breakfast tray

He’ll bone all your wives then declare himself gay

Next he’ll tear off ya willie without a g’day

Throw up the bars and block the way

There lives a monster the other side of the cage

Check out the clouds an ominous grey

He’ll use them to perch then pounce down in May

Throw up the bars and block the way

There must be a monster outside of the cage

Though no one has seen him by night or by day

The bars and tall stories all sell the same way

I’m thoroughly appreciative to friends who have helped by illustrating (thanks again)…

But … I still refuse to admit any guilt or suggest that the poems require more colour …

eh? … … Even if they couldn’t stand vertically by themselves I wouldn’t acknowledge it to you, I can’t even see your floppy facial pubes back there, so why should I rant on about my shortfalls to you?

There are currently 115 hard-copies in circulation, and a translation to Norwegian is due to

break upwards out of the ice soon.

A bonus poem (which was ommited from the first version of the book) has also been added to future printed versions, it can be sighted, loitering at the end of the book below.

.

These are some poems from my latest book.  All except for a handful were written in 2014 over the period of a month.

.

I was particularly motivated to get this work out of my conscience to further shed light on institutional brutality, in the form of a specific incident where I was refused treatment at a hospital for head-injuries after falling, then chucked in the slammer?????

.

During twelve hours of custody, whilst concussed and bleeding heavily.  I was also refused treatment or a medical examination, even though lawfully the lock-ups are obliged to have medical staff at the ready.

.

Other than ethical disparities between my own ideas on what it is to be a mature human being, the police’s practise from a medical point of view was extremely dangerous and potentially fatal.

.

It is obvious to me that those in higher rungs who are entrusted to oversee and assess police operations are well-aware of the discrepancies between what happened and the protocols in place. They also understand how little regard was given to human life simply due to the overriding perverted will to control.

.

I was given a 9000kr. for “disturbing the peace”, and the threat was that if I refused to pay it I’d go to jail for 18 days.  It was subsequently removed when I requested the CCTV footage which showed that I committed no crime.  They went all went red, realising how naive they were to trust their grunts on the street.

For more information about this case there is an in depth newspaper clipping here.

http://www.dittoslo.no/indre-by/nyheter-indre-by/legevakten-nektet-meg-hjelp-1.8195988

As there are many (who truly live on street level and not off the glossy cross-lips of politicians) who are amazed at the frequency of such occurrences all around a world which prides itself with civilisation. By sharing stories, it allows people out of their pretty little homes and on to the surface of the world to see how society really functions outside of the slender little cross-sections of life they are used to.  And I, just like anyone else, belong to a tiny restricted slither of thought, although I hope I can continually expand and improve.

.

I am interested to see how the justice system proceeds from here, as even though in this case, the evidence is clear-cut.  The issue will be whether the claw that commissions the courts that belongs to the juggernaut who has inflicted the brutality, can free itself.

.

Mr. Workman, are you spineless or apt?

.

will you suck up to someone (or thing) bigger than you on your little lego job hierarchy structure? Or stand tall in the face of injustice.

For more information about my experimental voyage, which entailed walking over a continent for one and a half years boycotting money and ID. You will have to either walk it yourself or check my thoughts and articles linked to my facebook:

.

https://www.facebook.com/ibby.okinyi

and more human blubber:

.

But I am very bored of discussing both of these incidents, as life is a touch broader, so please proceed through the book.  Hopefully there is a little surprise below for everyone.

.

I’ve left this website up for now because I wish to not only hand-bind the books, but also to distribute them by hand. This may lead to a very restricted market, which is probably good because who would want to dictate the mindset of the masses.  However, this way I can let all the people I’ve met along my travels, or whoever has had interest in my expression, read whatever they feel like reading.

.

At a future date if a publisher decides to impound my work, and I feel that its bondage would be beneficial to it for some warped reason, I may have to remove this website. So have fun whilst the sun’s out. To be honest I don’t really believe in copyright if I can get away with it. I will pirate you hook and all, so feel free to do the same with my work.

.

It is great fun to make your own books, it is also a practical skill that one can take all around the globe.  I am in the midst of organising an intercontinental (yeah that sounds way more important than it actually is!) underground label with a few other poets whose work I get along with.  (“Chew This” my first novel was sold out with 251 copies gone.  But, production has temporarily stopped, as I am even more bored of that book than discussing police cells.)

.

Please note that the poems are specifically ordered, much thought and time has gone into this. If you want to get as much as possible out of the book then read them in order.  Conversely, If you don’t wish to take out anything out of the book, then feel welcome to read every word backwards.

Chew This!! – Not coming to a store near you very soon.

I just finished binding the first few copies of my new book called “Chew This”, and I hope one eventually reaches you if you have the will and time to read it! I’m building the copies by hand whenever I get the resources and time (each book takes about 45 minutes to make at the moment). Each construction is original, some look funky, others only deserve to be chewed by a monkey.

I’m getting help from a friend who is a master book builder, and when we have 100 copies we will have a book launch party, where we will try to raise 10000 kr. so he can pay his fine and avoid going to jail for graffiti. Later in the year I hope to have enough copies to send some presents out through the mail.

The book is a 150 page novel that is set on the day that the plants go berserk . They decide that they’ve enough of being stepped-on, eaten, trimmed, pissed-on and entombed in concrete. A heartless dictatorial flesh-eating plant attempts to take over the planet, brainwashing his minions to set deadly traps for all the animals and devastate all the cites and townships. A group of wanderers who have dropped out of society meet up in a forest randomly and realise what’s going on, and they take on the quest to locate the despot and end the war.

WE WILL PRIVATISE YOUR HAIR!

Empire: With your much appreciated consent, we´ve decided to privatise your hair.

Human: My hair?

Empire: Yes, you see it´s a fantastic invention that hasn´t yet been patented. We believe unselfishly that other´s should also have the opportunity to exploit it.

Human: But I really like my hair

Empire: If we don´t privatise it, someone else with bad intentions will. It´s the lesser of two evils … see!

Human:  How does that work.

Empire: It´s called Trickle-down economics.  In your town, we will install a very hairy man that resembles a bear! And thus eventually, through moulting and balding, everyone will have unlimited access to hair!

Human:  Well I prefer my own hair to the bear´s, but I guess whatever you believe is for my benefit is for the benefit of all involved.  Just give me a little notice if you decide to privitise the air, this way I can prepare to move planets.

Empire:  We´re also sniffing out options on how we can best privatise the air. 

Human: eh?

Empire: Great, now I get to explain my plan with a little more flare. We firstly hike up the price of “public transport” to 5000 times the average annual wage.  This is forces everyone into cars, tractors, helicopters and other vehicles that will create an environmental tear.  

Human: wot?

Empire: You really don´t understand much about the realm of finance do you?  It´s the principle of supply and demand.  Once there is little remaining air, the resource will become a precious commodity available for sale thus boosting our economy and shares!

The day politics ceases to flagrantly promote racism will be the day that borders cease to exist.  The moment when we are all capable of seeing past the mirage, and acknowledge that our true power climaxes when we strive to control ourselves and nobody else, will be the instant that politics and trade  vanish altogether. 

Profession:  Teacher/Student (Without the need to be institutionalised to practise or learn … and more of a student than a teacher)

A hypothetical scenario to ponder over…

If

A) The definition of work is: A socially constructive activity that secures the resources that are vital to your survival.

and B) You existed in a society of scarce and rapidly depleting resources, in which the only employer was a temporarily delusional but well-meaning machine who planned to throw to waste what remained for the “benefit” of all.

Then the only possible route to work would be to stall the process by going on strike!

What I´ve found my good friend:

I and everyone else have the need to justify our crazy daily habits. But when we see through of the socially constructed ghosts that have been manufactured to keep the daily rituals which we perform logical to us, we find everyone is good … all these evil vampires thrown upon us by the media, only exist in our heads and nowhere else.

Not talking to strangers, hoarding big bank accounts to protect you, and worshiping the flag etc. are just forms of contemporary witchcraft which bluff us by preying on our paranoia.  Laugh at them, but at the same time try to educate yourself and those around you to pave a brighter path to true power.

………………………..

There was a kind article written about my voyage in Shareable magazine by Maria Grausaskas on 14th jan.  It went a little haywire on social media and had over 900 shares on Facebook in the first week.

http://www.shareable.net/blog/pa-journey-without-money-from-norway-to-africa-walkingp

There was also a discussion about the walk in Basque on the radio.  I don´t understand much, except that Basque has a beautiful tone to it, and all the people I´ve met around the little towns have been super friendly.  The mountainous natural landscape is also as amazing to walk through as the modern history of resistance (against hegemonoic forces) that took place within it.  But, I´m not entirely sure what the Columbian passport is doing in the frame?  Maybe the radio station discovered my real identity :)  Eskarrigasko!

http://www.eitb.com/eu/audioak/osoa/1228540/nezularia–euskadi-irratia–ibby-okinyi/

I super appreciative of those who have written articles about the walk, the blog content, or even better …  issues relating to immigration detention, especially in languages other than English.  It´s good to offer people a chance to read in their native tongues.  If you have written an article can you let me know so I can add it to the press page of the blog when I get a little more internet.  It will sit alongside the articles in Dutch and Faroese, Thanks also for sharing this page, I hope to be able to provide interesting and informative material in the future.

Please note; The walking is on hold.  

I flew back to Australia to attend the funeral of a family member, so the walking trip is now on hold.

I walked from Oslo “Norway” to Guemes, Cantabria “Spain”.

But I still dream of one day continuing from the same place I stopped, and finishing with an artistic illegal crossing to Africa …

I believe that there are many interesting positive conclusions to be drawn from this experiment that I will summarise at a later date.  The walk has been benevolently described in a fairfax column as “original ” http://www.theage.com.au/travel/blogs/the-backpacker/ten-things-hardcore-backpackers-dont-know-20130205-2dv13.html, but luckily everyone’s life is original, and thanks to that, I’m very appreciative to those that taught me over the last year and a half.

I’m around Australia at the moment and planning a moneyless walk from Melbourne to Canberra to show support for flag change.  It would be very satisfying to witness the removal of the Union Jack, and live in a country that has outlived it’s racist history.  Remember when the English arrived they did not value the Indigenous Australians, and claimed the continent under  ‘terra nullius’ implying nobody previously existed there.  It is important to honour everyone in this thriving multicultural country, not just one of many waves of immigration.

 

TAKE A MEANDER THROUGH THE TRIP DETAILS :)

 

Walked over “Norway” and “Sweden” and swum through all intersecting rivers. Maybe about 600km not including forest wandering episodes.

(yeah, yeah it was summertime then)

map 1 Ibby

Arrived at Helsingborg and took a boat 5km to “Denmark”.  This was one of the two times I took transport to move south (other than generous rides in police vans).  The captain allowed me free entry after he almost choked with laughter.  The cooks even offered me a plate of leftovers.

I definitely would have prefered to build my own boat or refine my swimming skills but there are too many ferries these days interfering with the currents.

ibby map 2

Walked through “Germany” and “Holland” including a scenic detour over the 40km dike in the north-western corner.

I then got imprisoned in “Belgium” for not carrying identity.

If you read on in this blog you will see the proof that I put myself in the closed detention center to renovate it. 

The proof comes from the toilet seat!

“Under a government which imprisons unjustly, the true place for a just man*  is also prison”Henry David Thoreau, Civil Disobedience, 1849

(This quote uses the word “man” instead of person, so you may as well burn it.  What an ignorant dickhead he was.  However, what it does show by the use of horrible language which was then accepted as the norm, is the progression in society.  Bare in mind Thoreau was a progressive thinker in the US at that time.)

For me the inhumane conditions of the cell were no big deal as I was extremely  psychologically prepared after having walked through nature for the past year.  The guards on the other hand were not psychologically prepared for me to enter the prison as they knew I was there because they were doing the wrong thing.  They felt uncomfortable.  They also knew that formal punishment was not a threat to me as I used the isolation cells as meditation centers.  I was struck with disappointment at the mistreatment of people who had committed no crime other than being born in a different place on earth.

In the end strangly enough it was the Belgium government who committed a crime by breaking national law and releasing me.  The law states that I´m fully within my rights to stay in the prison until identified, and I never formally was!

I would appreciate if you read more about the system of immigration detention in “Belgium”. This is pretty much standard all around the world.  There is an underground site that I recommend: www.gettingthevoiceout.org

The fault is inherent in the system, as governments are constructed on an electoral system that encourages candidates to spend all their time trying to harness popularity, so those who really need to be helped, the people with no voice, get trampled on.

ibby map 3

After being released I had to take time to meditate over my next step. I rode a train without a ticket out of “Belgium” to “Luxembourg”.  I stayed for about a month and wrote an except for a philosophical magazine and did a radio interview.  For the duration of the stay (and the whole trip to date) I´ve still boycotted money.  I then returned to the point in “Belgium” where I stopped the walk and recommenced.

ibby map 4

I  walked through the whole of “France”  north to south, enjoying a luxury pit stop in Paris for four months (all the while still cashless).  I´ve recently entered Basque country on the Iberian peninsula.

I´ve now walked from the northern most European country to the Southern most, but the trip is not finished.  If I successfully walk through “Spain” I intend to find a way to enter Africa without papers or money.

What did the establishment do to those who first suggested the world was round??

absolutely nothing!

It was in fact those who followed the establishment blindly without the ability to consider different, new, and ever emerging schools of thought that got worked up and reacted violently to the progressive hypothesis.

It is possible that there was never any new thoughts and ideas, just the re-emerging and rounding off of ancient wisdom that is forever getting buried amongst shiny and fluffy things … Shiny and fluffy is not necessarily bad either, everything has its place thankfully!

What has been constant throughout time is that there have always been a small percentage that have suggested that the world is round, going against the razor´s edge, working for future generations with visions that can only be interpreted by those who have not had their creativity shaved by the carrots and whips of the illusion of hierarchy. These people whether vocal or not, can read with clarity what the majority may consider as dreams.  Even today there exist those that declare that the world is not flat.  This I promise :) They can see that society has continually progressed — and will always progress — back round in a circle until politics is dismantled in entirety.

“Fascism” and “anarchy” are mere abstractions of reality.  They are terms of no coherent meaning.  They are both only printed on paper to show each other up as circus.

However, what some particle physicists acknowledge as truth is when matter collides with anti-matter they both annihilate each other — and light is produced … it is this light, that is worth harnessing and releasing.

Just a few footnotes!

Throughout the roughly 3000km walk I have boycotted money entirely (that means I left the house with 0 kroners and haven’t accepted one over the past years and a half).

And … This Christmas , we shaved the ol’ mans beard off, warmed things up by burning a fire at the bottom of our chimney – and incinerate him if he tries to break and enter, and showed our children this video instead of rotting their brains and teeth with sugar and cheap whistles.  If you want to teach them bluff and fairy tales, at least tune them in to someone who can back it up (er … until shoulder pain kicks in).

This is a nicely written up synopsis of moneyless life by Finnish hitchhiking guru and authour Tomi Astikainen, check it out. ———– NO SERIOUSLY CHECK IT OUT, ITS STRAIGHT FORWARD, he´s even omitted the slight-of-hand fifty-two card deck stage one novice card tricks.  He also has a few books and the key to an explosive adventure attached.

The intersection between the playground and the jungle.  You only begin to travel when you detach yourself from what you believe are the objects, people or concepts, that you believe are essential for travel.

I guess I could´ve kept my passport in its case, nice and dry, and below one hundred degrees celsius … but to carry it I would have had to teach myself to carry more unjustified prejudice which would have been even more difficult.   To retain both my passport and frame of mind would be like entering a forested area to enjoy and examine wild grasses whilst lugging around a cement mixer just in case.

This is now the time and place to read (and follow instructions if you dare) through the treasure map to a world where time doesn·t exist!!!!!!!!

Firstly, apologies for boring you with the uncreative web address name “Ibby walks”.  The address was initially made because I created this page to swap toddlers photos with my mum when I was homesick overseas. Then I realised I had many mothers that were looking at the page simultaneously…

Or not ..

Or something like that …

So I guess I should now start to tidy up my webshite now?

Or not! The universe is the antithesis or order, so to try to clean it up by imposing my will on it would be a touch arrogant don’t you think.

So I try to act locally with the people around me.  Which means away from this voodoo gadget.  Here you will get a glimpse for a split microsecond through the end of the Hubble telescope (if you’re lucky) at how rich life is without money (a money filled life is one of permanently scamming people for a bargain) or transport (the vehicle for those who cannot live in the present.

Gandhi on singularity:  

“If you wish for computers to sap your last drops of humanness and completely annihilate life forces, then be the change and keep licking this screen.”

(The aboves a misquote by the way.  The gist is more or less right but he added in swear words repetitively and intermittently as he was reincarnated into a more modern setting when the discussion took place  …

but the details are not important)

This a page, that has not been well maintained with age.

Better than than just find my personal page on facebook if you´re going to use the beast in anyway “Ibby E Okinyi”, add me, and throw me a comment here or there.

I receive all messages but I go through periods of little internet access , so I’ll get back to you when I can.  I’m always ten minutes early for all appointments (that way I have an excuse to leave them before they’re finished).

Do you understand my drif – ting?

 

Okay put it this way, I leave massive holes in my text like this …

 

 

 

 

 

So you have the time between sentences to jump out the side window of your house and run.

 

Or be polite and hand the keys over to your house mate with a hug and softly close the door after you

or if you’re a chicken, make a coffee and have a wank.

 

Merci à mes nouveaux amis français que j’ai rencontrés au cours des 6 derniers mois.Vous êtes très apprécié! Malhereusment mon français est toujours la merde, est encore la merde, et je préfère vous écrire la poésie avec le pie, mais de toute façon ici, c’est un article pour vous :)

Hi,  thanks for coming!  My names Ibby … and I do nothing.

That’s why you may get something out of this website (especially if you study the spelling and grammatical errors )

Hi, thanks for nothing, my names Ibby … and I try to do nothing because generally nothing is a lot less destructive than something.

I’m sitting here eagerly awaiting a massive world-wide economic crash … In fact, I’ve already invested all my cash on it.  Let’s hope the worldwide economic “catastrophic” crash makes haste and beats the death knell of the atomic free-for all crash, the final whip of the UV lash, or the total human personality crash, where we all assume the characteristics of a flat screen.

The only beef I’ve got with the flat screen personality crash (or whatever you  want to label it) is that I never really owned cutting edge technology so if we all start to morph into these gadgets, I won’t exactly know or understand how to conduct myself without freaking people out.  Is that being self-centered? Or should I learn to light up when someone plugs a live 240 volt cable into my ass and stares at me with an open mouth for 10 hours a day? It just doesn’t feel natural to try to get used to it, sorry if I’m old-fashioned can’t help it.

and you?

Hmmm, if I was crouched over in the middle of that arid postapocalyptic desert with radioactive vultures munching away at what remained of my right testicle, at least spare me the pain of seeing someone wave a mortgage at me trying to get hold of my left one. …

Please … Don’t take both of them, at least leave me half of one … or at the very least the quantity required to help me to piss the little water I may find in the bottom of whatever iPipes are lying around … If your cojones are required to assist in that anatomical process of urination. If not, then whatever, forget what I’m talking about and charge me.

Don’t be lame, if we want to accelerate progress why not directly nuke the arctic?

And If you do so, do it with one of those silent bombs so at least I can finish my dreams and enjoy the last three minutes of my life.  See I’d probably be sleeping in a tent and if I got woken I’d wake to a meal of plastic melting into my mouth and up my nose, and to walk all over the world and wind up in Maccas for my last meal would kind of make me think I took the wrong choice way back at school when the careers councilor took me into her office. I may start to feel helpless or scalpless or something like this.

Just shut-up and do your dirty work if you really have to do it.  But let me stay oblivious in peace, or at least without cheap melted cheese.

Poets whose prose make more sense than their lifestyle, are professional liars who are so good at their job, that they’ve already convinced themselves that they’re telling the truth.  They can be at any stage softly encouraged to come out from behind their shield of possessions, fire their reputation, and live in life itself.

I’ve currently been living without money for over a year and a half whilst walking 2500km (at a really slow average pace of 4km per day).   The blog was initially built to show artistic solidarity with those who showed me solidarity on the way.

Now the blog is marketed as a free-for-all circus which is also an exaggeration, as the website does nothing unless you switch off your computer and jump out the side window of your house and run.

The header entries are to be read first … Whilst you’re opening the window …

On the right panel you’ll find a collection of short essays or poems, and on this page you’re reading a few different videos, music and an overview of some free family activities like burning down passports to get granted a free visa to immigration detention centers.

Whilst walking along the Loire river I stumbled into a small town called Blois. I was kind of in a hurry to migrate south 300Km to beat the snow this winter … but then my ears dragged me into a trance, then under a saxophone and into a jam session. We had such a fun time that we decided to make an album one song a day…

One song a day makes this music tribal music not stereo music.  Music from one of those tribes that you think doesn’t exist because its members run so fast that you can’t see them or feel them.  You know what I mean?

What do you mean you know what I mean? How can you know what I’m talking about if you can’t see it or feel it.  If you know what I mean … then I guess I don’t really know what you mean …

OK whatever goes, just check it out :)

I got a great review for the album by the way “Ibby this is a fantastically high-tech production, your voice sounds like Pavarotti through a serious distortion pedal.  Anyone who doesn’t appreciate it lives in a cave and is mal-adjusted to technology”

(that review was from my mum by the way, the one who I swap toddler photos with … don’t tell anyone) 

Put on your judges wigs and let’s get off to the more serious business.

… AND HE JUMPED OUT

 THE SIDE WINDOW OF HIS HOUSE AND RAN !!! !!!

 

(On the 4th of June, 2012, I celebrated the 1 year anniversary of my divorce with money, she took my entire estate, BUT … … … … … I fought successfully to regain full custody over my mind)

Thoughts.

cough cough cough …

If I claimed I presented you this website in a minimal layout to avoid showering you in gimmicks, I’d be deceiving you. And maybe it’s not that I’m too lazy or incompetant to make it look better either.  You see … back in the stone age all web sites looked like this, so I could possibly be trying my best to mimic the ancient formula to give this work a little historic value :) … Besides … The only way to read the essays is to turn off the computer, and jump out the side window of your house and run  …

and then tell me where it is.

The army of the future marched into countries with stealth, ‘brutelessly’ colonising them. They had no need for violent force or suppression of information, as they knew that love and logic would eventually permeate in all directions irrepressibly.

In each region of conquest, instead of planting a flag (an archaic object designed to magnify differences between people), they planted a pair of well-worn socks.  Resisters would smell the essence of what all humans are really constituted of.

Or something like that.

This book is being written whilst the author walks over a continent on a quest to further understand reality.

The experiment observed the following rules :

The use of transport is forbidden: (This would take me out of the where I am, contrary to the objectives of the experiment)

These days on occasion I may take a little transport if there is an exceptional reason, but I make sure it takes me back to the same place it picked me up.  Cars are one of the most offensive objects on our horizon that regularly fuck with our visionary abilities.  We all continually move forward as one mass, gathering energy and radiance.

The use of money is STRICTLY forbidden: An unnecessary distraction for a strong human in its prime, an object not worth its weight

*** The use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs prohibited: Today I explore this reality, not that one

*** (This rule was held for a year, whilst walking Paris to Oslo, it’s been dropped for the second rotation around the sun, to keep myself flexible , otherwise the experiment would have been too easy)

I have promoted myself, I am now boss over myself (and boss over no one else). (Whilst curable starvation exists on this planet in such prevalence, I have no regard for the corrupt ineffective laws of the land which prevent the transition to a more just structure of resource distribution.  National law will be over-ridden by the laws designed by my own morality.)

I am now going deeper

 (after exhausting my quota of power words: forbidden, STRICTLY,prohibited, boss, deeper, left is the remainder of the text which comes friendlier to the

eyes :) )

Other than all the many obvious ethical reasons why one would wish to boycott money

and national ID.

Trolling for laughs is just as valid as any other in this society where the media tries to

manipulate us

into assuming the personality of dried prunes :)

Just because you run the media and your lust for money has fossilised you … you wish

to drag all the suckers

down with you into the bog of scummy objects? … What if I want to be a healthy carrot

not a packaged up

dried date?

then, I guess I should …

SORRY OUT TIME … TELL YOUR STORY WALKING BUDDY!

New Releases!

http://soundcloud.com/bluff-ballot-box/sets/castrated-bluff-orchestra

http://www.vrijebond.nl/de-nieuwe-buiten-de-orde-is-uit-3/

The new edition of Buiten de Orde (it translates to “Out of order” I think … but then

again so is my Dutch) ! It costs a whopping 2.50Euro because those who dedicate their

time into producing it seek greater profits that are non-monetary, (for example

demonstrating that things can be achieved without financial incentives). I was

lucky to have the opportunity to write a personal letter for the magazine, and

it’s nestled amongst many other even more interesting and different ideas

from a diverse range of people who are willing to think for themselves….

Check it out … (or believe that change comes from within the order, okay

well maybe not from your boss but from his boss, that jerk? … well what

about his boss, who that greasy dude who’s so tripped out he thinks his a

woodpecker and has been trying to make love to the mast of his luxury

yacht for the last 6 months… I don’t know but either way don’t look at

this post in case someone sees you… especially as that person may be a

woodpecker …

14/5/2012 – a) The Ballet of Bluffs has a new facebook page.

http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Ballet-of-Bluffs-Ibby-Okinyi/219973811450896?ref=ts

Will it save the world, no the lovely madame doesn’t need saving.

Many people told me it made them think though, others told me it was the most

elaborate form of mindless spam that had ever crossed their line of vision …

If you consider that  The Ballet of Bluffs may fall into any of these categories (or any other)

then please consider spreading it like sexual frustration in the vatican.

b) There is a facebook event (with a website attached) launched primarily

to give attention to a new global project and yahdeedah-bladyblah. You may

read about it there. The by-product is there is space in the event where

relevant ideas, events or art can be advertised. Please do so.

Media is a critical resource that’s been in the hands of a few (generally out-of-touch

and conservative) gentleman until the decade. Let’s not squander this newly acquired

asset.  The aim of activism is to raise awareness by finding a medium to carry worthy

concepts from the free thinkers into the mainstream.

As amusing as it is to flirt with a 350 year old dude with fake tits and a mustache

who’s trying to fool me into believing she’s Aprodite’s identical twin, that’s not

the reason I joined social media half a year ago.  (Maybe that’s why I stayed on

social media reports haven’t been confirmed yet).

A tourist guide I was invited to write as an outsider whisked through the exotic

streets of Luxembourg… for one who only settles for the plush side of existence.

http://www.forum.lu/pdf/artikel/7382_317_Okinyi.pdf

READ THE ABOVE ARTICLE IT’S MEDICINE FOR YOUR MENTAL HEALTH !!!

The philosophical and political magazine gave me rough guidelines here to trick me into not

confusing myself as I wrote.  I appreciate this and you may as well because it’s a little more

connected than other pieces.

Have you ever examined the footprints of an immigrant, or at least paused to think what it’s

like to live a life where you are continually instructed to assimilate (become more normal)?

Are you and your family really that poor, or could you modify your attitude a little to share

some space and try to waste a little bit less?  After so much evolution in the global political

structure in the last few generations; the independence of many colonies after years of being

squeezed dry, the end of apartheid (on paper), the demolition of the Berlin wall, who is willing

to try to push that little bit further to arrive at a world completely free of the caste system…

a borderless society, in both a political and subconscious sense.

After my stay inside immigration detention, stabbed in the soul by witnessing first-hand

what people are prepared to allow others to endure under the pretext of saving money

(an object people don’t even understand),  I’m often comforted by my firm belief that the

globe is in transition and humans will eventually unite without distinctions.  But how long

do we have to continue to pay the toll? How long we will have to bare the knowledge that

millions of children who live south of the Meditarranean starve to death each year unnoticed

whilst the news raves on-and-on about a crisis in Greece and Spain (in both countries food

still rots in bins due to overproduction and poor distribution).

Through history there have always only ever been a small percentage of people not content

with the status-quo, understanding that a leap in political consciousness (not spiritual

consciousness) is possible.  And I hope to be one of them providing it’s not a cosy Sunday

morning :)

If you examine history you will see that these warriors have followed their heart,

seeing through the world of propaganda that attempts to pacify us all. They have

shattered the constricting shackles that we impose on ourself through fear of judgement.

They have understoodthat being vocal is not a sign of disrespect for society but rather

the ultimate respect for humanity and its ability to advance.

Although these people may not be fully understood at the time of their actions, they

have all eventually succeeded in achieving what they set out to, even if the greater

extent of their work has not been understood until a couple of generations after their

death.

So to all those who are currently challenging the mindsets of others and spreading

awareness, thanks for thinking of the generations to come,  and inspiring us all by

publicly denouncing wrongs and continuing the harmonious anarchic work of our

predecessors.

If you can do all the above crap steroid free whilst simultaneously having a good time,

then you get a promotion to the next level and a session with the big boss …

Curriculum Vitae:

(Its only relevant if you want my recommendations on how to use the net

for activism in 2012.)

THE ALARM HAS BEEN SCREACHING FOR FAR TOO LONG, IF YOU HAVENT

YET RISEN CONSIDER YOURSELF SLOW AND OUT OF SHAPE, THE NATURAL

TREADMILL HAS NO MERCI!!! 

IF YOU ARE GETTING WOKEN FROM YOUR DAZE, AT LEAST THANK YOURSELF

THAT IT WAS BEFORE THE ICE COLD WATER FROM THE MELTING POLES

CAME TO GREET YOU, AND SIMULTANEOUSLY BID YOU, ME, AND THE REST

OF OUR FAMILY OF LEMMINGS FAREWELL.

1) Walked “Norway” to “France”.  Driving away from the world of transport has

led me to more adventures and adrenalin than any previous lifestyle I’ve known. Once

you’ve had the pleasure of leaving everything behind and swimming through a river that

crosses your path,  you’ll enjoy the pleasure swimming through every river that crosses

your path, especially if it’s around the time of the green Scandinavian midsummer.

2) I haven’t touched money since June 2011. So what? No big achievement.

It’s sad if money is the focal point of your existence.

3) I wrote this book without owning a computer. There are way too many

objects out there, I don’t consider myself special enough to require any of my own.

We impose enough tax on the environment as it is.

4) I burnt my passports in front of police and they told me they loved me.

I was sincere and so were they. Why should we not love a fellow human?  Afterall they are

ninety-nine point nine percent the same as us.  There is no proof that they are not just us.

A passport is racism on a flakey bit of wood, that’s all.

Passport burning tips for you and your mates: If you use petrol you can force

your new friends to jump higher, if you use petrol liberally you can turn the passport

into a children’s inflatable jumping castle!!!

(If you believe that the only valid revolution is a leap in consciousness, the main idea

of political action is to evoke thoughts.  So it makes sense to record acts and get them

out there. If you place four or five journalists around with fancy cameras, there is a

better chance that workers will think a little before acting robotically.  This video has

also functioned as my ID for police.  When they view the recording, they get an

opportunity to think critically as well.)

5) You still reading? Why aren’t you writing?

6) I managed to find my way into an immigration detention center in “Belgium”

for three weeks

and bring the internet into the facilities and people’s story outwards (check link below).

Not even journalists or relatives have access to the center.  But go ahead trust your

government, blindly vote, convince yourself of its importance if it makes you feel furry.

If you intend an action, you should show that it is premeditated and not just spur of the

moment insanity. An honest little video is all that’s required.  This was recorded off a mac

book, without rehearsal.  A friend put in the subs and music.  It’s not special or

state-of-the-art, but its good enough to show there is a human with reasoning behind

his actions.  The intended audience for this video are the workers within the facility.

That is why it was important to make a dutch copy as well.  This action had much

more effect on the inside of the immigration detention facility than it did on the

outside of it.

Dutch:

Engwish:

Maybe I am playing with the immigration laws, but its important to remember

that they are only laws.  Furthermore, they are laws that play around with real

people`s lives.

7) I was lucky to be invited to participate in a party outside Merksplas.  It was especially

emotional because I still had many good friends held there. There were gypsy bands, Djs,

speakers more powerful than massive outdoor concerts that echoed off the evil walls.

The inmates even educated us on what was happening inside as we broadcast telephone

call.  It was a great group effort organised anonymously with the participation of many

sub-groups.

8) “Belgium” has recently repetitively showed their citizens, that they wished to

squash all democratic expressions of freedom of protest.  I even observed a court

case where the police prosecutor quoted Mussolini.  To save my time and the police`s

time I decided to do the right thing and go and protest directly at the police station.

I occupied the Central Brussels Police station for 3 days   I found this

exercise very fruitful as I had contact with about 200 police, some managed to

eventually jump out of their uniform and embrace their human side.

9) Dreaming and loving, loving the dreaming :)

If you still have a passport my advice to you is read as far as the preface.

Take out your passport and incinerate it. Laugh, feel good, and only

then read on.

 Happy burning Ibby :)

I’m leaving this website constructed by friends when I was held in immigration detention in “Belgium”.

I smuggled out writing through visitors and SMS’s as internet and cameras were

banned in the facility.  All humans, should feel a deep shame for still allowing these cages to still exist.

In the future, when all humans are given equal rights at birth, and free passage

exist for all over the planet, we will look back at these times and wonder how we

could have been so brainwashed into nationalism, and how borders never served

to benefit anyone at all.  It will be acknowledged that they only perpetuated starvation,

they kept the rich too paranoid to experience interactions with others and enjoy the

diversity or cultures and ideas.  Borders will be etched into history books as the one

big bluff that justified the exploitation of our environment for the benefit of the

fictitious national economy.

If you’ve understood the trends of the times properly, you’ll realise that borders

are on the way out.  But the quicker the better. With this amount of information

available world-wide I guess that we are living in the last generation of this senseless

structure of borders and national competition.

Thanks to those who created the below website from

SMS and letters smuggled out of detention -Ibby

the next action is …

               ALWAYS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If I am doing any action, and get dismembered by the national mafia, or locked in a cage and fed it should be written up here.

EXTRA EXTRA !!!!! SWIMMING AGAINST THE CURRENT!!!

Simon, an inspiring friend of mine (and friend of this rich planet), is about to attempt to paddle from Valparaiso to Costa Rica to try to raise awareness about the huge problem of plastic in our Oceans.

He’s previously crossed the Baltic from Sweden to Finland in a kayak, and traveled Australia on a natural diet which included a healthy share of roadkill. Follow his trip at www.isladebasura.com ,and also find videos and information on the biggest environmental problem our oceans are facing at the moment.

 Good luck Simon !

 

 

 

Also another interesting adventure:

Harald’s eco adventure:

He’ll be walking, peddling and hitch-hiking from the most Western point of Eurasia to the most Southern, from Portugal to Singapore. During the journey he’ll look into ecological problems and the impact of global warming on mountains and the people who live there.
