The New Media Landscape _ new poem April 2017

The New Media Landscape

Ones and zeroes 
Raining down on me
April showers of spring
Refreshing rebirth they bring
Reminding me of the mountain
Snow and ice melting away 
Rushing down the mountain
The creek full and swollen
Vibrantly offering baptism 
I lovingly entered and swam in
Connected, tuned-in, plugged-in
Walking down back into town
Now being able to see things
To see things the same differently
The outline of Whispering Angels
In the ones and zeroes so alive
First I thought they were pictures 
Yet defiantly opening the doors
Reading me the poetry of the divine
Leading me to sift thru truth and lies
Through tears running from my eyes
Leaving me with a spent lover's smile
Whispering Angels will be back for more
Out of town and in cities guided by ley-lines

Question Regarding American Backdoors?

Question Regarding American Backdoors?


So if there's surveillance run regularly on American citizens wether incidental or targeting for political purposes with all the tactics employed for seamless cover-up including smear & destroy credibility, blame on rogue agents, typos, spying (but only because of the heart strings being pulled by love that jealously drove good actors bad because they had to know everything & everyone in their lover's orbit) etc ...
So our own law enforcement legit and special rogue ops and all have been using sting ray, name checking, turning the switch on, tumbling D.I.C.E.
What makes you think that a Snow'd-in event hadn't captured all of this activity electronically?
Moreover what makes you think that Russian spies aren't also targeting the targets our own law enforcement (and or WH & Media & Private Dicks for Senate & House & lobbyists) is targeting legitimately or illegitimately? ... and why? Is it only to influence votes? ... or is it to influence policy? .... who wins & loses in business, politics, film like a Mephitic playbook?

And, thank you for those who truly protect and serve us, we the people, the everyday Americans trying to be Americans today, everyday!!! You rock and or roll :) keep on keeping on!!!

Sincerely, Concerned Citizen:
John A. Conte, Jr.

How to Dismantle Citizens' Rights?

Funny, Natural American Spirit rolling tobacco that provides American Spirit rolling papers when rolled and smoked could somehow through the lens of an observer smell like weed!

As Chris Hayes stated on Morning Joe in closing about his new book when citing a Ferguson police officer which only illuminated by an Obama Admin DOJ intercession "criminals are not to feel like citizens" ...

How to Dismantle a Citizen's Right?!

"I smell weed! ... who is this person? ... the law is the law and weed is illegal. And I smell weed." .. and the camera lens smells weed when the living theatre experiment was actually using Natural American Spirit rolling tobacco with American Spirit rolling papers.

"How one turns a glass of ice water
Like an idea
Of generosity
Until it all seems
Possible"

Loss Prevention _ new February poem 2017

Waking up wanting to sleep more
A predawn stir my dog sniffing at the door
Inside-Outside he sits and sniffs the change
It"s black morning and there's heavy rain
My memory receives electricity to roam
Back to my father at the dinning room table
Working on an opening argument, summation
Closing argument; analyzing the New York Times
How open our California ranch was in the woods
And yet how protected its landscape and gates by design
An occupational medicine department where i was hired at
An independent hospital to work as its only outside salesman
IKEA was one of the companies I was to get back as a client
I had a history with a track record for opening and closing deals
The Coca-Cola Company, Liz Claiborne, HallMark, Baxter Intl.
The list went on my father's Health & Wellness he did on the side
Of his law practice with algorithms in the HRA from Stanford Uni
I tested the online software application that was massive and flirting
Working with a Robotics spinoff company with Artificial Intelligence
Then I moved on to the hospital outside of my father's companies and
New accounts I opened, closed and worked at to retain all in the same
Bayer Corporation president of North America to the Mom & Pop I
Sat down with at the kitchen table and had a beer or two after 5 o'clock
The one thing that loss prevention doesn't address is that of human pain
When someone close to you dies and others you know go too its no game
From my neighbor friend's grandmother from my grandmother's village
To getting the news in a far away city while all alone a long way home
About your own grandmother, your own titan father or the Chief of Police
Living next-door at the time he had to call and say "your nephew is gone
He's missing in the Ohio River it was an accident listen I'm truly sorry John"
Later taking me for a ride in his convertible Thunderbird after he retired and
He passed on too and the funeral home was crowded for Chief Jim Creese ...
I found my way with Business of Poetry and self taught: you can't prevent loss

In the hinterlands _ new poem 2017

In the hinterlands

Valleys we're driving thru

Rail yards with tracks to

Everyday hopes & dreams

As the trains come & go

We can see it come true

The business of poetry 

Sidewalk concrete seams

Logistics of trains & brains

"You Get What You Deserve."

"You Get What You Deserve."

Rushing waters jettisoned time
Coming up on him frothing & foaming
His toes, feet, legs, sex organ, torso
Arms, neck, shoulders, head & hair water
Surrounding him at Zuma where he lie
Receding with a powerful Malibu tide
Exfoliating his skin while sand dragged back
Into the parade of Pacific aquatic pageantry
All the labels cast upon him dissipated with
Each rough yet gentle wave directed by Moon
He had been drinking on Sunset since Noon
If it wasn't for his tolerance he might die high on
Champagne, Bloody Mary's, banana margaritas
Labels cast to set him in a net by the starving
Unsatisfied appetite of ignorance and hatred
His wanted demise currency like Pieces of Eight
The currents kept taking it away and depositing
Out there in the middle of a dark deep ocean
As the salt sea air tickled his nostrils memories
He could be anywhere and felt that unaware
And so surprised to awake at home so alive
Shifting sands of time took placed labels & traps
Inside a reality called now rendered meaningless
Spanning time from midnight to dawn's highway
In the course of over thousands of rugged years
Kind of a thing designed by Business of Poetry

Bernie Sanders Lives On Via Paris Fashion Week for Men

 Bernie Sanders Lives On Via Paris Fashion Week for Men 

Bernie really did break-on-through but too bad he was targeted & mislabeled & held back by a diabolical systemic ruling class who plays by an alternative reality (if there wasn't such diabolical play in HRC's behalf - see email scandal story & watch & read media reports on H. vs. Bernie - Bernie would have beaten Trump. Do you get it?! Bernie would've beaten Trump).

Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner bigTime: during Paris fashion week, designer Demna Gvasalia drew inspiration from an unlikely source: U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders.

The Obama - Trump Cycle Irony

The Obama - Trump Cycle Irony


Trump's public persona and manipulation of the traditional media via new media is easily labeled with the value = black & white (law & order)
However if anyone sees gray matter it's Donald J. Trump

On the other hand, Obama's professorial philosophical authority positioned him to be the rhyme, reason and rational of the way the world works and exists in gray matter - however - he clearly not only saw the world as black & white he unfortunately projected that on our nation and our world.

BTW, this friend of my father who was around my world when I was formulating my young mind as a poet lawyer marketer forbidden rockstar had a big influence on me:
Nov 16, 1999 - PITTSBURGH, Nov. 17 -- After 32 years at the University of Pittsburgh, Theodore O. Windt, professor and chair of the Department of Communication and preeminent scholar on the American presidency, will retire in April, 2000. ... Windt developed the first presidential rhetoric ...

Psychic Sir Turmeric Mustardseed _ new poem January 2017

Psychic Sir Turmeric Mustardseed

If StoneHedge Would Sway
Alien eyed energy formations
Besides the roots of chords
The alert forewarned physics
Lap rat cooked by psychic energy 
In the cartoon book of calculus 
What form will energy take here 
Alien, human, demon, X-factor 
Cheers to all those benefactors 
Piercing fear with Arthur's sword
Practiced poetry of Merlin's alchemy

The Language of Your Brain _ new 2017 poem

The Language of Your Brain

We’re all a little different
And yet similarly the same
Where we are individuals
With special care dispensed 
I yearn to learn the ways of you
What I call language of your brain
Our body contains billions of cells
And like a lighting storm it takes
Actual voltage to help you awake
Together we can keep memories
And create new ideas there as well
Through the language of your brain
I’ll help so the axons don’t collapse
To go from pre to post synapses
Carried all along the synaptic cleft 
As two go out three come in the gate
Resting and grading and pumping
Electric impulse we see frame by frame
The memories and ideas like our poetry
All from locating the tone of your stuff
Allowing me to learn languages of a brain
Organically stimulate and inhibit or activate 
Speaking code to the address of each domain
Hippocampus. Neurocortex. How complex.
I’m reaching you thru the language of your brain
