and what about the violence
once they leave the womb?

We are spiritual guests on this earth
and should not join in the killing cycle.

The dogs of war continue to rule this world. Your place and mine. Their opportunity is hostility and ignorance. Their game is manipulation. Terror is a tool – the fear of hell, ridicule, beating, bombing, jail, locusts,  the list goes on and on. Each place has its own special box of terror.


When I Become Santa

We move operations south
to Newark, Watts, Bronx
East LA and ten thousand
other empty places.

We begin to make toys for souls.

Peaceful and playful
thoughtful and joyous toys.

Now
unafraid and knowing –
we will walk this earth
giving gifts.

help us to understand
(not that we would change
anything)

what if
we stopped
building mansions

what if
we began
to build ourselves.

our home
in our hearts
freedom

our home
in each other
humanity

our home
in love compassion
reality

You always believe
ends justify means…

colony collapse
restless legs
identity theft
tainted eggs

leaded Barbie
cancer genes
home invasion
tainted greens

diseased hearts
deadly sin
broken parts
tumbling in

tasered youth
speech bereft
monks for truth
what love is left?

popping pills
guns in school
glossy pages
skinny cool

homeless nola
no one cares
bullies at war
shiny wares

early risers
sound alarms,
can’t convince
of coming harms

If only otherwise…

We heard oral sex
ten thousand times
more
than terrorism.

We saw her face
ten thousand times
more
than the evildoer.
