I quit watching the news but it continues to seep into my consciousness like a virus getting a grip it makes my stomach sick I often found myself rushing to stand between the television and my children as the newscaster cast spells of school shootings rapes wars mass graves, of water logged dead bodies hanging […]
That sunset over there Watch it….. Watch it disappear As the colors transform As the clouds dance Overhead Did they put you in a trance What did you see Shapes making patterns Did you see a future Did you hear your ancestors “Fix bayonets” Jumping over twisted wire Razor sharp Can you hear their war […]
[reengineered puppeteering] among the seven billion we are the cantastorie we are not the corporate heads or bankers doing the Russian Mafia’s laundry washing the filthy gains of the Karzai brothers cleaning for the cartels we sing of the dancing marionettes forced to fund the weaponized might- actors of enforcement for the global manipulators we […]
They like the word war For it identifies the enemy The other Not on my block They like to point fingers Not in my America The public Is enemy number one To enforce laws To build more walls To tear families apart Separated from dreams Locked up and most often No father ever raised them […]
watching like vultures on the corner of a swamp where the bodies are piled in high definition streaming as the murders continue the West why do you not protect them as they claimed their freedom in the land of pharaohs as your drones fly high watching the carnage the West the East are […]
One would think a poet has memory The ability to not only write but recite Birth words into the world and unite The zeitgeist’s voice With little choice Of not doing so The mission of the bard One would think a poet a master of words Planning out the cogency of propositions In order to […]
I think of my own neighborhood, how people do not know each other. How quickly we go out to get our garbage can. As we nod our heads briefly so that we might understand, that there is something more important going on inside, than to chat. Maybe a pot of something boiling for a recipe. ...
This letter is to all who survived and did not cheat. How you punched me in the gut. How you stole our dignity. I now envision your bracelets being recycled to help another cancer cause. Maybe from yellow to gray they might say, BrainStrong. Taken out of all the dresser drawers they are hidden in. ...
If you listen, you will hear cries Of a world becoming desensitized To the tragedy of tomorrow Bombs blowing up Buildings falling down Shootings in schools Children stolen and abused The slaughter of innocents In another country prevents Us from taking any stand How can we make a difference When the world watches it all ...
We pool our resources We list our skills and passions. We ask how to be a good neighbor. How to reach out, educating without alienating. How to find one common cause. How to find our prophet motive. Doing good without compensation. To become whole inside this global nation. Fear can be crippling as we face […]
I sit here looking at the barrel of my gun. It is the loaded, same commercial rerun. Looping, NOW, only for a limited time. Two shotgun shells genetically loaded. So many pellets they can disperse. Blending into healthy tissue. Turning the good into the worst. Inserting stress, not easily withstood. Both shells are lodged inside […]
a person shot dead in the head crowds rejoice nationalism is fed politics aside no more place to hide fed to the fishes cowboys yelling rawhide as widows and orphans cry a man that stopped the world for ten years he did hide directing the car bombs of jihad as we fought and we flew […]
it cuts both ways the tools we use today discarded tomorrow. minerals stolen, poison sorrow. gold drained, used and forgotten. woodlands raped, wiped and rotten. building a better tool. communicating to you. wired and text messaged. tell me where you are right now? what do you dream of? where are we going? brains upgraded, many […]
Happiness appears without a trace Like bullets shot through a human’s face. Velocity and trajectory tell how long That smile will stay and belong. Happiness does not dwell on the news. It does not focus on psychotics and distorted views. It does not worry about cold weather. Or the political games that last forever. Happiness […]
A ball of white light blasts outward. A man pulls his body upwards. All his energy exhausted. His singularity invested. There are people that don’t understand The investment that has been given. There is a city, a world, a universe That has been growing version by version. Like sleeve tattoos recycled among its own Shaped […]
Don’t ask don’t tell can go to hell. For making people lie to each other. For not allowing us all to feel like brothers No matter what sexual orientation. As we fought for human rights and liberation. For all the money spent on its misconception. For making others feel less than equal. As if, what […]
Dexter, Dahmer, Columbine and Virginia Tech. Serial killers. Spree killers. First person shooters. Born in blood. Blood soaked deep. Watching Thriller. The empire thirsts for products. Outsourced for the benefit of the many. We breed violence. We breed war. Making terrorists by creating the poor. We are a sponge to this culture. We curse it then […]
