as we get closer
smells like someone is grilling
old radios

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?

Keep the masses occupied
materially oriented.
Feed them “must see”
“must play” content.

Imply that jobs
are supposed to suck.
Escape through consumption!

Normalize excessive living
as life’s goal.
Make it unpatriotic (or uncool)
to think otherwise.

Render freedom irrelevant.

there is no place
quite like the other

each valley
each plain
each mountain
each plateau

each
with its own
land forms
life forms
weather
and light

encased in a shared
halo of air

we are binding this earth in asphalt.

binding
and branding
we block the night sky
with our signs.

from
above
we look
like fire

 

Heroes

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.

They were just 23

It seems like mankind
is just twenty three –

EWTN watch

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)
