The Greatest Generation

The greatest generation of all, is ahead. Look forward. Can you see them? They are coded. We carry them inside our cells. Be thankful. There will never be a need for them to fight a war. No need to be shot and bled for loss of limb or more. The greatest generation of all time, […]

Look Forward

if there is a chance. another way. to survive the storm. it is through you. your generation will rebuild a nation that has taken one step forward and two steps back. for we seek progress from the attack of facts. proving basic math. from religious fanatics of the old ways. of primitive thinking. from which […]

I Can See for Miles

I Can See for Miles

From my stateside post I saw for miles and miles. We drank all night. Came to shift hung over. Serving with teenagers. Taking naps between duty gaps. No Officer around. Plug in your Play Station. Serving your nation at war. Wishing the hours away. To transfer out. To see what the fight is for. For […]

To Level Up

To Level Up

In order to understand any problem one must have empathy. One must imagine themselves in the shoes of another. Humanize the enemy. The spree killer. The deserter. The terrorist. With love and family and fear. Somewhere something went wrong. With that deer in the headlights blank stare, the ability to feel the other’s loss lost. […]

Dribbling Genetics

I don’t like sports, never have. I played them because that’s what boys did. My father was a coach so I did not have much of a choice. To show up. To participate. The only lessons I learned on a court. For years I watched him take bleachers full of kids and bring them to […]

Save Me a Seat

Cancer is a killer. When you first hear the verdict most collapse in horror. Then time begins to really mean something. Emotionally it is equal to genocide, war, spree killings to the ones who live with it and the ones who support those who do. To cancer survivors, cancer is a connection. It is like […]

Let It Last

Let It Last

Be quiet. They don’t know. Shhhh! Let them believe a little longer. You didn’t know? They still believe in the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. It’s true. None of the kids let them know any different at school. This morning, I turned down the radio. NPR is talking about three hundred children stolen from […]

Mr. Somebody

Mr. Somebody

do you exist. can you prove it. can anyone. is this the only life we live. are we vibrating strings from what physics gives. one note to multiple lives. wave after wave as gravity fades. pushing us outward from our big bang. don’t want to live. quit making choices. stay in bed and sleep. even […]

I am Average

I am your average minority lesbian woman who loves her family. Works hard. Pulls her own weight. I’m looking for fair pay. I’m looking for immigration reform in anyway. So I can see my parents before they die. I want to marry the partner I love. I want equality in every way. Not just a […]

Losing Touch

breath. focus on third eye. as i was taught, push tongue to roof of month. inhale deeply from belly. let it out. repeat. s l o w l y. body becomes like jelly. breath. mind begins to drift. thinks of sounds that move adrift. in the mix. in the home. in the mind. noise is […]

Empty Shoes

In the footsteps where
buildings once stood.
The graves of where
the dead mixed in
with concrete and sand.

Deceptively Simple

a chess board is laid out new. so many options. each piece must conform to its role. to know empathy play the pawn. they are strong and many. hear their voices. each one, a choice. when on the line what will they do to realign the board. will they stay put. will they cross into […]

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

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 […]
