nine was was

September 11, 2015

It seemed a time of respect.

Skies were skies,
no chalky lines.

Only bird, cloud
flag.

Booty and bullets
vanished.

Terrorism was not yet
entertainment.

Reflection and restraint
a  brief national value.

Never to return,

We lived briefly
in the eye of a blood storm.

hubris
greed
denial
myopia
dereliction
disinterest…

he coward

August 26, 2015

he once stopped by
and promised to resolve
my shattered bones.

he dried my tears,
placed a candle in my heart,
with no flame.

he proclaimed,
I will never abandon you.
then he left.

he left to have sex
with violence
like John Wayne.

he showed up
again, but never
returned.

until there are no soldiers
we have all died in vain

speaking with tongue

August 8, 2013

We rationalize:
it’s a jungle out there.

We possess the language
to scaffold a lasting peace.

Yet we continue to speak
only reptile.

television lives

August 7, 2013

reality is a corporate
Skinner box.

we scurry like rats
through a maze of aisles…

Must See TV
leads the way…

Spycurity

No more
security,

just spycurity.

No more sleeping
in peace,

only sleeping
while watched.
