Art Goodtimes – Stormy Weather

In honor of the birthday of Art Goodtimes, originator of the original Armed With Visions poetry section of the Earth First! Journal, we offer you one of his poems…

It took time.
I had to apprentice with mountains.
Grew a belly.
Combed the hair of several wives.

When the people voted
I drove their bus.
Stopped for hitchers
in spite of the law.

Or how it looked.
Hung up my monkeywrench
& walked into those halls
knotted with power.

Treated & tricked.
But with a sweet word
dipped in juniper
& lost gracefully

over & over under & through
until I too be-rainbowed
let the clouds kiss
& disappear
