Dust to Dust

fingers pushing plastic. ears plugged with foam. eyes on pulsing panels. pressed flesh to pressed wood. cushions off-gassing poison. air condition recycling death. called dust. feet hugging carpet. eyes blinking dry and tired. wearing a jacket in the summer. frozen like ice cream. cells mutating. merging into fabrication. organic into industrial. carbon into silicon. called […]

I am Infantry

I wanted to be infantry. I wanted to kill the enemy. I ran up mountains for lunchtime. I did push ups to stay awake. I wanted to have my war. The one my father had. To earn my manhood overseas. To see death to be free. Instead I stayed on U.S. soil. Making sure computers […]

Pick-up Sticks

I do not come for you. I do not come to harm. I do not come to alarm. I am born from nature. Called to life in an instant. I fly easily over distance. My eye as wide as your fears. I feed off the warmth that appeared On the land I now clear. The […]

Water Sings

it flows through our lands and through our veins. it goes where it can unless we contain. the fluid of life we cannot replace. two days without we all meet our fate. we bottle it. we dam it. we pipe it. we strain it. it is sold like gold to poor people now. river waters […]

My Cyclone

My Cyclone

Toxins in the food. In the water. In the air. Genes modified to adapt to this fair. Born in to me a mental exhaustion. Creating in me a major depression. I have had it for years. And all the thoughts that go with it. On the rollercoaster of life I ride. A continuous dwelling machine […]

How Little I KNow

binary in nature. yes or no. this is the flow. how the universe grows. a cell divides. male or female. yes or no. the data grows. our children live to learn. to carry our genes to yearn for the answers. to the questions. the universe unfolds. bits of data. life’s algorithm to know. the questions […]

We Strive

We Strive

Posters of action heroes worshipped.  Men with guns getting what they want.  Ski masked faces of young men.  Pushing through doors.  Inflicting fear on who they want.  When they want.  Physical in nature.  Boots to skulls.  Hearts broken.  Bars for these men await.  Can they take it.  Will they make it, without being caught.  Generations […]

Skipping Stones

Skipping Stones

A stone comes to you hard and rough. Abrasive. You polish the stone and talk to it. Show it respect. Hoping that it will eventually reflect. Hoping that it will learn language. The days go on and no sound returns. No thank you. No yes ma’am. No acknowledgement. You play dress up. Put the stones […]

The Tyranny of the King

Tyranny of the King by byron-king We didn’t want the king so we went to war. We didn’t want taxes and now we are poor. Today we watch as a prince and princess are wed. Across the pond, pomp and circumstance is led Down the streets that enslaved us from a distance. Now England is […]

Hope and Pocket Change

Numbers before my eyes. New dates, new labor and times. Not sure how they may take Me from point A to make It to point B, to another Place to orientate. To buy a house now. To put money down. Make charges on a card. To sign my name King. As the market bell rings […]

War from Afaristan

War from Afaristan

Armed Predator drones flying above. Human emotions they know not of. Hunting targets to be blown apart. Continuing wars that politicians start. Bombing people like ants. Little blips on screens they scan. From refrigerator boxes orders are sent. Clicking, enjoying, sticking the fight. An extension of our American might. For Lunch spreading fire sauce on […]

Dead Baby Dolphins

Dead Baby Dolphins

Blinded, eyes wide shut. Glued together with molasses. Not able to open one eye. Wearing dark sunglasses To shade out the lies. One year after the worst oil spill in history. A year of speeches that promised change. The gulf devastated as wildlife is inflamed. Dead baby dolphins washing up on shore en masse. An […]

Jacksonian March

quick as lightning the pain strikes. muscles cramping and cow prodding. jerking and mouth frothing. trying to say one simple word.

The New Tribe

We will create heroes. Lean and muscular. Hunters and runners. Farming with their hands. Watering our once barren lands. Faces painted and bodies bare. Woods silent and green. Ghost shadows rarely seen. Like winged spirits flying high. Floating from limb to limb. Digging inside the earth Seeking deep to search The mysteries still unknown. This […]

before the wars before cancer before responsibilities i would paddle a canoe to the lake’s core to inhale life’s answers to observe its uncertainties i would wait for the view as the clouds moved as the colors bloomed as the sun waned i would think of the future how i approved how i assumed how […]

Poisoned Milk

the moon grows large as the oceans surge. the largest its ever been. a week from the worst devastation. Japan toppled like a house of cards. waves wiped dirty a new start. destroying towns like a board game. on every channel you can see the lame. walking wounded with no home. fearing radiation from the […]
