Mr. & Mrs. Wednesday Night: Solstice with the Molstice
Looking east from my rooftop lunch spot presents a juxtaposition typical of our era. Within my building are undoubtedly several firms that profit off of the suffering, exploitation and dispossession of the global working class. Less than two blocks away, at the same altitude, dozens of federal prisoners exercise and get fresh air. I can't know their crimes, but even from this distance I can see that their identities mirror that of our broader carceral state. They are mostly men of color, serving time amidst the financial district of our city and recreating at the same altitude as criminals whose misdeeds we tolerate due to the material comforts they bring us. #chicago#massincarceration
Yesterday @luinilisil and I drove back from a great hang with @mothballer,@frankdoubleyou and the kids. Our whole drive back to Denver we were flanked by a billowing snow and ice storm. It was one of the most beautiful afternoons in my life.
