The Louisiana Social Pledge

We pledge our allegiance to Louisiana. We will embrace what makes us and our state unique. Louisiana will be recognized as a leader and innovator of the New South. Many great leaders of the future will come from this state. And we will show both the media and politicians that we are smarter than them. We will no longer have our resources exhausted and our people used and left behind. We will work hard and play hard. We will protect each other. We will support each other. We pledge that we will do whatever we can to get these things in motion right now. We will no longer wait for a path to be cleared for us. We will clear the path ourselves. And we ain’t giving up easily. We will socialize in the real world just as well as we do on the internet…in hopes to organize ourselves effectively.

Imaginary (Taylor Coen-Lafayette, LA)

Sunshine in the summertime and colorful rays of green
In the gusts circling the hills, there, a figure’s shadow
In black and white, the trail is uncovered.

An image of the spectrum, all colors
Shown in order, displayed behind the figure,
Emphasizes the meaning of the season.

One last glimpse in the beholder’s eye
Before an adventure begins with a vast journey
Across the ocean, barefoot.

All of this seems unreal for the area becomes metallic
And all too familiar, a complex of apartments.
In the middle there is a mound
And in the middle of the mound,
A shadow…
