Thinning of the Herd

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 […]

if these walls could talk    they would scream    they would cry    they would laugh    they would remember all the lives lived inside this shelter the first footprint set in concrete when you were a child playing only two blocks from here they would come alive recording all these memories they would tell a story of […]

Desert Scabs

I do not grow easily
So you buy me
From a distant land
Grown like scabs
Removed and shipped
A band-aid placed
On the desert you created

The Ordeal

Pablo was stark naked muscles shrunken and scrawny ribs ridged out like a starving horse habitually fat abdomen drawn in almost against his spine within lips disappeared as if amputated leaving only blackened tissue teeth and gums like a skinned animal flesh black and dry as beef jerky nose withered to half its length nostril-lining […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Before the Wars

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 […]

Byron King Plays Souls and Gold

Byron King Plays Souls and Gold

Some people speak softly and suppress their opinions. Poet Byron King is not one of those people. “We have to quit screwing around. We have to get back to basics, back to spiritual investments and dreaming big-really big. Great countries invest in creativity and in collective consciousness, both byproducts of the human soul,” he says. In […]

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 […]

In Your Eyes

a note in one’s hand. tucked away to be read again. words to remind one of love. a time before the world begin to boil. when children were tucked into bed from above. so much food children did not eat. a time when children would rather have treats than to eat a good dinner. now […]

Riding Fixies

Sitting in our homes, blocked off in our foam environment. Contained and reclaimed. All physical friends long gone. Memories from childhood gone wrong. When we all drove our separate ways. Relocating across country to follow our dreams. Trying to stay in touch but it never seems to happen, the way we want it to. We […]

For the U.S. has nothing to teach China. No moral high ground to seek. No words of wisdom to preach. Because its middle class is shrinking. Because it […]
