An image that's skin deep, not a true portrayal of me.

Just one person takes an interest,...Read More

Premium Member Democracy On Fire
In "On Fire"
Naomi Klein reminds us
win/lose capitalism invites a cooperative action vacuum
and abhors restrictions on money-accumulating freedom,

But Earth,
healthy global climates,
wealthy ecosystems
invite regenerative win/win climax
of cooperatively nurturing health systems
and abhor inhumane definitions of "wealth"
as privately-held and autonomously sequestered currency
natural resources
human resources

Bottled water is being consumed by everyone,
who don't realize the horrible thing that they are all doing.

I wax poetic as lifeblood imperceptibly wanes
Aging baby boomer
no longer fit as a fiddle
accumulating extra adipose tissue
around the middle
ain't no impossible mission
whence thumbs I twiddle
to shed unwanted 
weight methinks exorcise to unriddle.

Call to action necessitates
yours truly to acclimatize,
calling fitness trainer

I jumped off the car, never knowing why
I looked out the window and began to talk

Accumulating Anger: My Love Was Serpentine
My love was serpentine to the touch
I can't quite explain it...the love of mine
Had gone away from my sight and such
I can quiz my mind to say otherwise, my bittersweet sugar wine…

Sometimes, I wish that all my sins and faults would...Read More

For I'm stronger than fear
My cup is filled with cheers

With my absorbency nature
I take in freely God’s flowing grace
Accumulating with abundance from Christ’s compassion*-store
Optimizing the Saviour’s goodness as I’m soaked in His mercy-grants.

Midst my squeezable trait
I give kindness with whole earnestness
Loading out forgiveness with forbearance-cheer
Maximizing offered provisions up to...Read More

Acquisitive anguish arising within my acceptant abyss

The two Paths
Someday this vanity will cease,  
these futile struggles will bend and like wind, it will pass,
then the shrouds, the mattock and the grave,

the fever of avarice and...Read More

Death shall bring loves

Around the air, so cool

Deep into that darkness kissing
What could there be more purely missing?

And spinning the media to keep matters stealth.

I go to move the clock on your nightstand, but hesitate.
That’s where you always liked it, so I leave it in place.

eternity laughs at "time"
our big clumsy clocks
hanging off the walls
of an insignificant planet
with selfish inhabitants
accumulating things
buying more clocks
strutting the barnyard
sniffing for mates
laying nuclear eggs
eternity laughs at 
the bones of brevity 
of which we'll become

East of Omaha, winds blow far
Snowflakes coming down, scattered all around
One by one, more to come
Covering the ground, moving inbound

Some drop straight, others swerved
A few disappeared, others adhered
I lost sight, those that curved,

I stood motionless
the breath scratching its way to surface
seconds idled into minutes
watching like a predator in its prey sight
Her selective form withdrawing into darkness

Etching her shape

The war between need and loss
