and they said the circus was dead…

This poet has a clear view of the present.

boastful rhetoric
as good as
pt barnum’s
spews forth
from
washington
carnival cadences
attracting
and
distracting
american schmucks
to and from
the
sideshow freaks
freaks
of
every sort
from
congressional leaders
to
supreme court judges
all the while
the ringmaster clown
with
orange hair
and
skin
provides ample
subterfuge
to relieve
the nation
of
its wallet
simple
duplicity
the flag
being waved
with one hand
while
the other
does the deed
necessary
for
personal
and
family gain
oh
inside the big top
there are three rings
of
non stop entertainment
encompassing
the whole
of
government
you’re
free to enter
all
with
the right pass
but
please note
that
some areas
of the circus complex
are
restricted
and
have been marked
with
red lights
to
denote
family
living quarters

The three elements of success — Cristian Mihai

There are three elements to becoming successful in any given area. Motivation: I also like to call it willpower. You simply want to get from point A to point B. You want it. You are driven. You are willing to go the distance.

meditating on a closed homeless shelter…

A great poem catching too much reality.

Read Between the Minds

the brown bag prophet
said
i live
in
the empty spaces
life’s
denied
moments
where eyes
avert
and
prayers
fall on deaf ears
i’m
not alone
there are
children
and
their parents
in
these spaces
parents
of
all sorts
atheists
bible thumpers
and
those confused
by
god’s words
and
his deeds
as
well
as
certified heroes
and
criminals
those ungainfully employed
and
otherwise destitute
by
their attempt
at
existence
all
forming
society’s sediment
sediment
along
these streets
paved
with human gold
and
blood diamonds
diamonds
worn
no doubt
as
symbols
of
heaven’s stars
but
more likely
as
hell’s burning embers
but
who’s to say
not those
of us
living
in
the empty spaces

permanency…

This is a poet every day
who deserves more attention.
I know many writers whose work
people would enjoy, but they remain unknown.
Enjoy this poet, and if you want to see some of
the work of the unknown, I’ll see what I can doe.

our naiveté
assures us we are unique
living forever
in one form or another
along with the tooth fairy

Curtain

This is a poet I’ve been following for some time
and enjoy his work.

O at the Edges

black-curtains

Curtain

Adept at withdrawal, it retreats.
How appropriate, we think,
that its body curls
with the wind’s
tug, offering
only the
slightest
resistance. Then
it returns,
bringing to mind
the habitual offender
whose discomfiture
lies in choice,
the fear
of enclosure
removed. The
forward glance.
And back again,
whispering its
edict: concede, reclaim.
Give and take. We are as one.

when the wheels come off…

We are not perfect. Perhaps only an experiment doomed to failure.

Read Between the Minds

i cannot sleep
i hear
the night drums
pounding
within
my head
waking me
a
cold sweat
envelopes my body
in a shroud
of
fear
a civil war
is
coming
history
is about
to
be
repeated
once again
brother
against
brother
blood soaked
passions
will fill the gutters
of
hate and intolerance
a nation
poised
to
self-destructed
fulfilling
ancient prophecies
but
the dead
will not rise
nor
will the meek
inherit
the ravaged earth
they shall be
as
all shall be
the roadkill
of
man’s accelerated
greed

the twitter diet…

Could that be called ‘false news’?

lies and alibis
seem to be served up daily
a white house cuisine
