big city bound

as we get closer
smells like someone is grilling
old radios

artist: greg jalbert

before you place
money in hand –
blow off the dead
like dust


the woman
who decides
to bear
no children

bears love
to all humanity


Scars give Mother Earth more character!

and what about the violence
once they leave the womb?


there is no place
quite like the other

each valley
each plain
each mountain
each plateau

with its own
land forms
life forms
and light

encased in a shared
halo of air

we are binding this earth in asphalt.

and branding
we block the night sky
with our signs.

we look
like fire

Every no-name human who has to live
in the frightening shit holes of this world.

Every person who struggles by their side.

All those who stand up to tyranny
in the face of beatings and death.

Heard on Nov. 3, 2007:

“Only Christ can unite a very sick and sinful human race.”

(Oh, by the way, speaking of sick and sinful – look at the cost of this merchandise at their website)

the gases
the stone
the life forms
the consciousness

we must build
on what has become,
not destroy it
