refused to stop at the wall…

What a time we live in.

campaign promised wall
pilfered funds from everywhere
ruined pristine landscape
xenophobic stunt but now
no funds for fighting virus

the disappeared…

Damn, you always hit it. The unfortunate is that there is too much to hit. I think this country will carry on, but it won’t be easy.

Read Between the Minds

that shack’s
got no electric
nor
inside plumbing
as far as we know
nobody
visits 
that old man
most folks
say
he’s
a crazy old fool
only thing
he talks about
when he steps foot
off
his property
usually
just
to go
to the general store
is
the haints
in the swamp
the swamp’s
just beyond
his back door
at
night he burns
sage
and
holy impepho
covers
most of his face
in
soot
from
the cedar
burnt in his fireplace
as a child
i once
heard him talking
to
my uncle
said the swamp
holds the souls
of
runaway slaves
freedom fighters
and
soldiers
who thought
freedom
was theirs
because
they fought
in
the great wars
guess
the sheriff
and
town folks disagreed
their bodies
got swallowed up
by
the swamp
no
area 6 burial
for
them
i’ve been thinking
lately
that
he might not
be
all that crazy

living on white island…

What can you add?

Read Between the Minds

last few years
have been difficult
a number of minor eruptions
and
a couple of major ones
air has been toxic
and
steam seems
to
always fill the air
making it difficult
to breathe
though
denied
climate change
and
our own lack of stewardship
have
resulted in the loss
of
life
not as many critters
as
there used to be
and
human loss
has been
ever
increasing
it’s like we’re
continuously engaged
in
wars
war with other nations
war with the poor
war with the homeless
war with children
and
war with ourselves
a nation
of
immigrants
this place
called
america

cracker jack prize…

Another great poem.

Read Between the Minds

a rather
routine
event
body
lies
properly modified
for
appreciation
by
family
friends
and
those who
had
prayed
for
this day
when
suddenly
the corpse
coughs
this
of course
was
quite
out of the ordinary
and
most
disturbing
to
all
there
was
a series
of
oh dear gods
offered
and
numerous
i didn’t mean what i said
those
plaster saint retractions
filling
the mortuary
chapel
of
forgiveness
but then
someone’s cat
unceremoniously
emerged
from
the coffin
hairball
propelled
at
an ungrateful
and
spiteful
relative
hmm
perhaps
the
dead
do
speak

serve up that fried chicken…

Your exposure to an excellent poet and delivering an opinion of the condition of this country.

Read Between the Minds

i think
we should
all
vote
on
what becomes
the
official design
for
white house dining plates
it’s been suggested
that
the plates
should reflect
the true nature
of
the administration
a factual
historical representation
of
the policies
and
procedures
of
the presidential office
i think
that’s
a bully
idea
and
i’m sure
there are lots
of
disenfranchised citizens
that
would be more
than
willing
not only to vote
but
to render
several designs

behold..children are a heritage from the lord…

Unfortunately, the voice of reality.

Read Between the Minds

don’t matter
which
good book
you read
quran
bible
or
whatever
spiritual star chart
you follow
the charge
to
all adults
is
to protect children
from
moral
and
physical harm
don’t
say nothing
about
only the white ones
so
i suspect
brown
black
and
all the colors
in
between
are
included
yet
everyday
i read about
how
children
are victimized
in
wars
or
how
so-called
civilized nations
caged
children like dogs
along
the border
and
at birth
how
children of color
die
more frequently
than their
white
counterparts
oh
there’s
far
too many
homeless
and
hungry
children to count
perhaps
our leaders
share
the notion
that
children of color
are just
useless eaters
as
i recall
that was the same
dogma
that
the nazis
subscribed to
wonder where
the
new mass graves
for
children will be

dashboard heaven…

A look into reality.

Read Between the Minds

to some
the almighty
is
a bobbing head
on
a dashboard
accompanied
by
a string
of
artificial pearls
suspending
a
wholesale
gold plated
man made
representation
of
the divine
a
modern day
version
of
the biblical
golden
calf
depending
on
which
wine inspired
text
you’ve read
but
putting
that
aside
the drive by religious blessors
tabulating
televangelist
who’ve
found
gold
now
find sin
far
more
acceptable
including
that of
a
national rapist
adulterer
and
liar
as long as
their financials
continue
to look good
prayer book partiers
who
encourage
you
to tune in
while
they tune out
the true message
but
you should
stay tuned
judgement day
of
some sort
or
another
is bound
to happen
