Empty Shoes

Empty Shoes

Looking down from Freedom Tower I see emptiness. In the footsteps where buildings once stood. The graves of where the dead mixed in with concrete and sand. Workers inhaled them. While putting out the fire, cleaning up wreckage no park can ever replace. I see a country trying to make meaning of that calm day […]

Open Armor Like Flesh

Open Armor Like Flesh

Russia is the army we trained to fight with its tanks, ships and military might. All through the 80′s I was RED scared as I played soldier in the Mississippi woods. Defending against soldiers who parachuted into my mind’s backyard. The movie Red Dawn made quite an impact. Their fight for their freedom in a […]

Certainly Uncertain

what do we have to draw from? can we see reality for what it is. a chance. a mistake. an enumeration of choices that lead to this point. to these words. to my reaching out to you. out of twelve billions years of evolution. of natural selection. from single celled organisms. to here. to now. […]

Farming Consciousness

Farming Consciousness

a deep sorrow grows inside the human heart as it echoes centuries of war. of fighting for. something we can never achieve. a liberty. a justice. a freedom. a peace. we seek together to relieve the revenge programmed deep inside our DNA. birthed in far away lands. pyramids slaved out of rock and sand throughout […]

Dragon’s Breath

Dragon’s Breath

We are all in passing trains. Date of birth. Time of death. Time stamped on the tracks As subway cars zig-zag through the underground. Feel the stale air bellow debris and sand like a coming storm. As the metal brakes the ground, squealing through the round, corners of our lives. I look across the tracks […]

Dance With Alladin

The clouds are magic. Painted desert smoke signals signs of coming trouble. Thunder blossoms outward. Bombs dropped all around. Schools. Nurseries. Hospitals. There is nothing civil about civil war. There is no target too holy or too sacred. Children are brainwashed for food and water. Massive bombs strapped to chest. Their enemies draped in armor […]

Protect your Vitals

The NSA took my baby away away from me. away from me. Late one night my son, was in a chat room. He used some keywords. They arrived in black punched him in the back. Just the other day, when leaving church I told my son. God sees all. Even when you think you are […]

They Howled

It gets cold here when it’s 45 degrees. People bundle up and chatter. Talk of wearing layers. Then at noon it is 70 and sunny, again. Jackets get stuffed in bags and carried around like luggage. This is sunny Florida. This is the place where people come to forget the cold winters and rat race […]

The CLOUD

The CLOUD

The cloud. An information frontier. I tried to picture packets of machine code as it moved through the air. What do they look like? Photos of your child’s birthday. Videos of drones bombing a mosque or a wedding. Tweets of twits. Edited status updates. And then one day, Snowden got in. The information we received […]

Only Once

Only Once

My head is disappearing. Into my fingers. Into this keyboard. Like a pitcher of water being poured into a potted plant Unaware of what I might rant. Only aware of the action. There is only this moment. My children are running around. Screaming. Thumping, with their heavy feet. They are excited to be physical. As […]

A Moment of Zen

A Moment of Zen

Little chicks in the back of the van strapped in, to their safety seats chirp and yell and slam ideas around in pretend worlds as their parent’s dodge frequency ranges equal to any weapon of sound. Try not to be alarmed. This is them being happy. This is playtime. Role playing. These are screams of […]

Without Form

Without Form

Form with no form is the way the path water flows over land giving nurturing killing destroying buildings carving mountain rock Grand Canyon Form with no form is a chord is a note practiced for decades turned into jazz embodied in masters playing pure spirit Miles Davis Form with no form is science is math […]

Casting Spells

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 […]

Don’t Disturb Time

Don’t Disturb Time

Take the target off line. Move into its core. Mal-align the spine. And it will move anywhere you wish. Be it a person or a nation. Block and strike simultaneously. Take it by the wrist with sinking hips, use centripetal force, like a tornado moves ships. Remember to give time for retreat. For another opponent […]

BIG BANG

BIG BANG

I put a gun to my head each time I write you. I think about … if this was the last thing I ever did, what would it be that I could give? What words could help you live? Would it be a confessional to my ancestors? To be read at my funeral. To be […]

Call and Response

I took centuries from you as you waited patiently knowing I would not return. Years, became months between the day, I began to prepare again, sharpening knives for distant lands, then the day came when, my letter and body returned by horseback. It seemed like that happened again, and again and then, once I came […]

Rounding the Corner

As we bike to school this morning, passing the park, the sun rising, the morning light shining off of pastel clouds, my eight year old asks to look at the faces of the men posted on the public restroom. I say, let’s don’t because, they are monsters. Pedophiles to be exact but I don’t repeat […]
