words are bells
let them ring!

those counted bodies wet and cold are not sleeping
homeless,dispossessed,peaceful-yet in a state of change
that counts each day as an extension of practice
each night another meeting.Observation now creates theses
upon these harbingers of hermeneutics,even as their practices are changing
MIKE CHECK! and horizontal decision making are parallel structures
This conversation is ongoing-it varies from academic distance
by those bodies arrested for trespass,who are now banned from returning
Each city varies in the mode of issues and priorities accorded
Some have teach-ins ,others outreach demonstrations.
Syllogisms do not feed minions-donations are shared equally
yet still within health and hygiene regulations.This is a work in progress
Some cities have resorted to brute force-which validates O peacefulness
Some have evicted campers,more imposed regulations
O is a public experiment in living democracy
It is as frail as the weakest links-assaults and rapes occur
Arguments resolved via agreed upon procedures.
Philosophy demands putting one's mind to an assigned task
The task of occupation is transformation.Way beyond logic,equations and syllogisms
In the heart of the core of each city,a new group is demanding equality
Will this 1% represent all 99%?or are too few taking on the too many mighty?
