Manifesto Mone, The ArchAndroid Jazz, blues, spirituals, poetry I have been woman

for a long time beware my smile I am treacherous with old magic and the noons new fury with all your wide futures

promised I am woman and not white. (ll. 2534) Audre Lorde A Woman

Speaks The quality of light by which we scrutinize our lives has direct bearing upon the product which we live, and upon the

changes which we hope to bring about through those lives. It is within this light that we form those ideas by which we pursue our magic and make it realized. This is poetry as illumination, for it is through

poetry that we give name to those ideas which areuntil the poemnameless and formless, about to birthed, but already felt. Audre Lorde, Poetry is not a luxury, Chrysalis:

A Magazine of Female Culture (1977) The white fathers told us: I think, therefore I am. The Black mother within each of us the poetwhispers in our dreams: I feel,

therefore I can be free. Poetry coins the language to express and charter this revolutionary demand, the implementation of that freedom. Audre Lorde, Poetry is not a luxury,

Chrysalis: A Magazine of Female Culture (1977) The cyborg is a creature in a postgender

world; it has no truck with bisexuality, preoedipal symbiosis, unalienated labor, or other seductions to organic wholeness . . . the cyborg has no origin story in the Western sense . . . An origin story in the Western, humanist sense depends on the

myth of original unity, fullness, bliss and terror Donna Haraway, A Cyborg Manifesto ah, Carl, while you are not safe I am not safe, and now

who dreamt and made incarnate gaps in Time & Space through images juxtaposed, and trapped the archangel of the soul between 2 visual images and joined the elemental verbs and set the noun and dash of consciousness together jumping with sensation of Pater

Omnipotens Aeterna Deus . . . Allen Ginsberg, Howl (195556) Moloch! Solitude! Filth! Ugliness! Ashcans and unobtainable dollars! . . . Moloch the loveless! Mental Moloch! Moloch the heavy judger of men!

Moloch the incomprehensible prison! . . . Moloch the stunned governments! Moloch whose mind is pure machinery! Moloch whose blood is running money! Moloch whose fingers are ten armies! Moloch whose breast is a cannibal dynamo!

Moloch whose ear is a smoking tomb! . . . Moloch whose love is endless oil and stone! Moloch whose soul is electricity and banks! Allen Ginsberg, Howl (195556)
