Premium Member Blessings

It rained this morning until this moment,
now the birds are singing! A blessing.

It’s not much of a tune, kind of repetitive
and it could use a base accompaniment.
In fact, to be honest, the birds
are kind of annoying.

Helen, Troyless
Helen, Troyless
by Michael R. Burch

"The face that launched a thousand ships..."

Helen, bright accompaniment,
accouterment of war as sure as all
the polished swords of princes groomed to lie
in mausoleums all eternity...

The price of love is not so high
as never to have loved...Read More

Freely dear love I endeavor to impart;
Freely, my free voice of love;
I speak to you dearly as a robin's hark;
Immensely I love you beyond the breath I acquire;
Sparrow’s chirps, chirping springs in the air;
In my eyes I...Read More

When Poetry Threatens
There is a greasy odor in the air

At the window
across the room

the diaphanous wings of a fly

peal off accompaniment,
--a staccato--contradictory notes

to the stretched rays of a dying afternoon sun

falling  on the face of my otherwise muse

And in her countenance

Immaculate Deception

Like crystals being diluted by a prankster or trampster, and scattered

Premium Member LeftBrain Trauma
My leftbrain deductive reason
now sadly sees 16/20,
since 2016 a patriarchal white privileged hierarchy
of orthodox RightWing religious social history,

Where I am either egomaniacally at the self-righteous top
of my competitive win/lose hierarchical game,
or I am a victim,
bleeder prey,
mortally morally wounded,

Premium Member Not That You Asked
Not that you asked,
or ever would feel free to inquire,
yet perhaps you grow ready to listen
to a voice inviting exit
from your,
and our,
long loneliness,
isolation so shelled-over,
so embedded,
you are sure we are each and all
unredeemably alone

In our envy of others,
the positive deviants

I would like to hear
with no urgent need to speak
and to respond
without reacting,

I would like to hear
your experience with faith and faithless communities,

and secular believers
and unbelievers,
communal investment positive
and fear and anger
flight and fight negative,
and pathological,
and dissonant.

I am a right-brain prominent writer
which must not be confused with
a prominent left-brain writer,
which I am almost decidedly not
nor would I aspire
toward such all or nothing thinking

I feel more like the muses of...Read More

Premium Member Born of CareTakers
Born of wombs
for premeditated health
and restoring nutritional wealth,

We might warmly anticipate
a more win/win democratic living Earth communion,
more like an organic gardening womb
than a lose/lose political capital-overinfested swamp,
filling in with unhealthy communities,
filling in with dysfunctional nuclear-ballistic families
and tribes,

Premium Member New Year Masquerade
For what manner of beast,
sad creature,
mad monster,
deeply dark angel east,
does everyday accompaniment
seed cold contempt
instead of breeding warm sacred resonance?

Should beloveds
not expect to grow in sublime stature
not despite, but for humored respite, flirtatious flaws,
fallen fractured nature, merely human
after and before All.

Premium Member Healing Touch
I would not defend inappropriate touching,
whether this touching is physically toxic
or verbally violent,
beyond the pale of ego-healthy assertive,
reducing political economic subjects
to personal objectives.

Inappropriate touching
becomes much too toxic
in absence of therapeutic touching
of individual egos
and communal economic 
eco-logical cooperative relationships.

The Composition of Shadows (II)

We breathe and so we write;

Pale phosphors burn;

The Republican congressmen,
and I do mean white privileged straight men,
came to their Democratic opposition
concerned about how depressing
December can be,
and all of winter,
come to think and feel
of dark discerning Advent,

So maybe we could stage
a comedic debate
about Trumpism,

Premium Member Rights Despite Wrongs
There's something to be said
for doing the right thing,
even for the wrong reasons.

Reasons are about becoming, a work in progress,
as doing is about living, a lifetime process,

and how we are
each day following disembodied wandering rights

It had been a hellish week.

On Monday

told me, as gently as possible,
that what I had hoped was a temporary separation
is to be extended into perpetuity.

Premium Member An English Adaptation of Mephistopheles' Song of the Flea from FAUST
There was a king once reigning
Who carried a great, big flea—
And far from him complaining,
The flea filled the king with glee!
For to him that flea was dearer
Than even his only son,
And to make his preference clearer,
Raised it higher than anyone!

Some issues,
some opportunities,
are written across great Western and Eastern cultures,
Northern and Southern economies,
Left and Right hemisphere structured minds,

beating in- and then out-flowing hearts.

We were sitting in our 60+ sharing circle
on a rainy Tuesday afternoon,
grey and raw and dreary,
listlessly speaking of the need to downsize,
to transition to a more manageable
more safe
more audible habitat.

And wanting to hang onto our independent mobility,

Our anti-racism, pro-polyculturing health

Meet inside a viciously anti-outdoor
