LO! a racist exhile
"Crypto-racist goes on psychedelic journey across the full spectrum of human thought and experience."
This book of racist humanist poetry chronicles the internal saga of a heavy heart, cracked through the moral ice of current_year, spun out across the soaking wet roads and rails of America, utterly penniless, and ultimately burnt blackest-n*gger-black in the developing world.
It was written throughout the past three years, during the author's travels, and forms a loose narrative. Its underlying message is oblique, but is essentially meditations on one's vacillation between utter hopelessness and utter hope in the struggle to overthrow Antiracism.
From the author:
"I present to you the poetic saga of myself-of a person who has actively applied himself to the cause of dismantling Antiracism for all of his adult life, albeit in the obliquest of ways. The book is a compilation of poetry I wrote from the couple years or so I spent either struggling to make ends meet in NYC or else riding freight around the country, smoking meth with bums and more or less "riding it till the wheels fall off", as well as my then-abrupt flight to Ukraine where I tried to enlist in Right Sektor as a 'war correspondent'-an ambition I gave up after narrowly escaping abduction by separatists in Donetsk. Bereft of hope-and also my glasses and what few valuables I had left due to an incident in Odessa-I started hitching aimlessly into Europe, finding myself at Rainbow Gatherings where I had some powerful acid and DMT experiences. Committed to my own doom, I began hitchhiking in the direction of India. Once there, and with nothing else to do, I started putting together this book of poetry, which forms a loose narrative arc. That said, all these biographical aspects are by no means explicitly mentioned in the book itself.
This poetry book is thematically complimentary to my novel DEATHTOTHEWORLD: an interracial racist love story."
