REBELLION IN A CURIOUS WAY by Jodey Bateman

Introduction

Revised April 1999 

I have just realized the stakes are myself 
I have no other 
ransom money, nothing to break or barter but life 
my spirit measured out, in bits, spread over 
the roulette table, I recoup what I can 
nothing else to shove under the nose of the maitre de jeu 
nothing to thrust out the window, no white flag 
this flesh all I have to offer, to make the play with 
this immediate head, what it comes up with, my move 
as we slither over this Go board, stepping always 
(we hope) between the lines 

n Diane di Prima 
n from Revolutionary Letters 

The breakdown of military discipline 
Inspired in a curious way 
By the movement 

Tod Gitlin 
former national leader of 
Students for a Democratic 
Society - "Seizing History"
