A Poem for Brad Will - R.I.P.

I received word today that someone –
I did not know passed away.
He died rather violently.
But he lived rather heroically.
Heroically with a small “h”.
The small “h” that gets buried in footnotes
after the nightly headlines pass.

His heart on his sleeve
ideals nourished his soul.
An “Internationalist” he was.
A visual artiste he was.
A man of the people he was.

He came from “El Norte”
In solidarity with the people of
Oaxaca, Mexico.
Documenting for Indymedia
from New York.

I must have passed him so many times
We - ships passing in the dark
on the barricades
of the NYC.
I will forget
the exact cause

But I felt as if I knew him like a close brother
People we take for granted
Till they r no longer with us
but only in spirit
and all that is left r tears
to console us.


new site

Friends of Brad Will now have a website up and running, with coverage of protests at the Mexican consulate.


It is better to die for an idea that will live, than to live for an idea that will die.
