Growing up without fear Outside all day like animals Till the sun went down Machete in hand Making trees and earth bend Biking till the Summer’s end Children on our own land Where there were no criminals And everyone knew everyone Churches and apple pie and all Where the kids grew slim and tall My […]

The Human Compromise

This existence with all that it is. The barbed wire fences built and then destroyed. The tribes we nurture and then employ. I am surrounded by family. The ones who mean the most to me. My partner and my progeny. All of this is for them. All the doors I kick in and defend. All […]

The Penitent

In my cell pacing Eight by Ten feet of me. One toilet. One table. One bed. And me. These walls swallow mental capacity. As I try to breathe. I am a social animal Kept in this box. Taken out for one hour. Putting my hands in a slot. Hands locked. Walked down in a trot. […]

2 + 2 = 5

The waters have given Rise to a new species. Washing away the filth. Chemicals distilled And recycled into new DNA. Insectoid in appearance. Brains grown for clearance To navigate survival. Evolution continues In billions of galaxies. God was not here to save humanity From ourselves. God set the stage and let it all play out. […]

100% everywhere

A third here. Drifting between the here and now. The details of life. Building legacy. Noticing how big they are growing. How fast time is going. I wake up each day and before it is over find thankfulness. Even though I question where I am. What is my calling, if any? I see all the […]

I see you for you. No matter what you do. No matter how dirty you are. No matter what has put you here. The death you have seen. The crimes you have done. For I could have been you. I see you as me. Arms deep in trash. Looking for plastic. Looking for glass. Looking […]

Thinning of the Herd

What will it take? How many loved ones must die? Disappear before our eyes. As the floods or fires embrace Their last breath. How much longer must we march Towards the cliff. A species asleep. Singing, dancing and straying From our calling to be good stewards Of the planet we inherited. Must another earthquake happen […]

A band-aid placed
On the desert you created
