“The Sky is Falling”

July 10, 2013

The sky is falling. Keep calling wolf. Nothing ever accomplished, Only consumed. Starvation in the name of Flourishment begets nourishment, For the privileged status quo is content. The sky is falling, Our priorities following. Entertainment tonight Disregards our tomorrows. A consequence of sorrows, Repeats and Hollows, What it means to be human. The sky is […]

“Knowledge”

July 3, 2013

One day I was introduced to knowledge and I liked his style. Connecting me with Gandhi, Luther and Thich made me think In a new way, On a new path, Like the Tao Te Ignorance being ignorant Spoke to jealousy. And brought along his boy malice to destroy my friends and me. Twas too late. […]

“Up In Smoke”

May 4, 2013

Tired of the ignorance, Presented as deliverance. Delivered distractions from descendants, Have quaked my dreams. The ripple makes awake, The face of a book hysteric with hate.   Tired of the ignorance, Called Intelligence. When everyone’s an expert, Knowledge is put on the back burner, Understanding goes up in smoke. Compassion suffocates, Fear combusts, And […]

“Jesus and the Marlboro Man”

February 13, 2013

I stand before you, Body hung so crucifyingly. Exhaling the smoke, That will be the final breath of me. We never believed in each other. Could be why I am here, Could be the fear. I lived on my own terms Now I’m finding difficulty coming to them. Youth gave me wings, That have since […]

“Lost In Generation”

January 7, 2013

Layers of negative noise Penetrate the occipital, Creating visuals viscerally unknown To the mind that thinks alone. Believing all is possible To find that all is not. Only the remarkable, Mixed with obstacle, Formulates the alchemy To defeat our own mediocrity. A nation purdue. No direction or compass. We can read cardinals, Follow intermediates, Yet […]

“No Sleep Til”

December 19, 2012

This is a call and response For those exhausted by our Middle Age. Awaiting Renaissance, But refusing to turn the page. Fear is seeing the end And realizing your nonchalance. If sleep is the cousin to death, Then apathy is his brother’s keeper. The bridges you burn, Cain n Abel the worst in people. Huckabee’d […]

“My Imagined Nation”

December 17, 2012

My Imagined Nation Is nothing like your television station. News anchors report, The glorification of our demise Yet my eyes have seen the coming of what is truly lethal, Within the sheep we call people. Opinions become fact, We live in the abstract, And no longer comprehend the meaning of equal. A Tele Vision Quest […]

“Word Is Bond”

November 29, 2012

Talk your wordsmithing. I’ll keep searching for the triple entendre. Not done yet. All I hear is the threat Made between us daily. Until H annexes ELL We will never know how to treat another Or realize the power of a written letter. Dem Reps chosen to make decisions, Congress to progress our civilization, Only […]
