“catch 22 II” 2020 N. Masani Landfair for Fifth Estate
Thank you Marc Lepson https://marclepson.com
The Fifth Estate, founded in 1965, is an anarchist, anti-capitalist, and anti-authoritarian, anti-profit project published cooperatively by a volunteer collective of friends and comrades. We are committed to non-dogmatic, action-oriented writing and activity to bring about a new world.
We are a decentralized collective of individuals from across North America. We come from a diverse array of backgrounds and personal experiences, but share a common passion: to see anarchist ideas and messages brought to print and shared with people the world over.
Although the editorial collective makes all decisions involving the content we print, the Fifth Estate would not exist without the time and talent of dozens of people who contribute to the writing, editing, proofreading, art, graphic design, distribution, and day-to-day business of keeping this project going issue after issue.
poetry n. masani landfair
“predestined serendipity” what if it is all completed all done every dream wish fantasy achievement every taste touch sight to be seen every smell of foreign shores scent of the adventured day the touch as you lay your head on his arm to recall and the recall remembers the day you sat and thought of all the things you wanted to do only to accept that they were done the second you thought of them that it is all completed and our lives are just a struggle to turn pages of our memory book 1:50 pm 2 18 2020
“negro unicorn” the pain fuels her to drive away before shaking the limited soul of lost basic bitches that steal to maintain what will never exist within them and their limited future generations she has learned her power and ability that moves her even when she seeks shelter in the nearest hidden place where she sinks into acceptance that her skin is a solar panel and shield an infinite byte of unimagined binary leaving hacks to trap those arrogant enough to test her lineage birthed from purity she smiles in the knowing smiles as the meek and fruitless dance mechanical before her, blaming her for showing them their portrait of dorian grey she smiles walking away to the work that is needed to the work that is good knowing if she has to pass that way again the ruins will be all that remain and despite her integrity she will spit on the ashes the last remnants of pain she may hold 2:05am 9 14 2020
