disemboweled poetry

"No revolutionary movement is complete without its poetic expression. If such a movement has caught hold of the imagination of the masses they will seek a ven in song for the aspirations, fears, and hopes , the loves and hatreds engendered by the struggle. Until the movement is marked by the joyous, defiant singing of revolutionary songs, it lacks one of the most distinctive marks of a popular revolutionary movement; it is the dogma of the few not the faith of the multitude." James Connolly 1907

Tai Amri's poetry is concerned with confronting the injustices of this white-supremacist patriarchal-capitalistic paradigm that is suffocating the will of the world. By calling in the divine imagery of the indigenous peoples of Africa, the Americas, and the prophetic social witness of the politically and socially radical Christ and counter-culture enlightenment of the Buddha, his work stands in contrast, and thus works towards disemboweling, poetry which forcibly submits to prescribed definitions of 'what a poem should be,' and in doing so it disembowels, 'what a human should be.' Common themes in his work are the challenging and critiquing of the traditional roles prescribed for the 'oppressor' and the 'oppressed.'
