That Woman
Everywhere I see
the consequences of her deed.

I wonder: did she give
even a flash of thought

to the fact that serpents
do not talk? 

And in that day
when she began to drown

in the accumulation
of her years and the

shadow of her life 
began to...Read More

What Else Can be Said


with eyes averted in graceful melancholy
what joy could be left not in belief
in new territory aweless with stale miracle
pond tossed stone rings ripple and die
obstinate and prolonged no going back
less new territory than new humility
once determined that the future is...Read More

Premium Member Restoring Deeply Conservative Progress
Our old nemesis,
capitalism,
is much older than democratic theory,
and even older than profoundly resilient democratic practice,
which is rather like Christianity--
often communion preached
and seldom democratically and multiculturally proficient,
fruitful,
viral,
contagious,
multiplying economic loaves
and politically empowering fish.

Capital-rooted values
derive from tribal chiefs,
elite healers and clergy,
and, more recently,
in...Read More

Premium Member Capital Investment Problems
A cold and calculating problem
I see
is finding resonantly warm motivation
for resilient employment
by following mere capital short-term acquisition norms
for sacred vocational gravitas,
and maybe a smidge of gratitude--
where "smidge" is warmly defined
as the opposite of cold hegemony.

Back in the golden age
of NeverLand,

Perhaps...Read More

Premium Member The Collector

I am a hoarder of antiquities,
offering longevity to ephemera.
Obsessed with an insatiable 
urge for accumulation
I fill every available nook 
stacking layer upon layer
of emotional possessions… a
treasure chest of memorabilia!
Then, in wistful, solitary 
moments of isolation,
I shall seek their reassurance. ...Read More

Premium Member SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST: 'UNDETERMINED'


The hungered in-flight spots its need to last,
The beleaguered seize every occasion,
Fittest scores a new day, other has passed,

Left to make the status quo unsurpassed,
Lost must survive and waive the equation,
The hungered in-flight spots its need to last,

Schlerotic schlemiel schleps
Schlerotic schlemiel schleps...

Into lonely senescence -
three plus decades already elapsed
trepidation, hesitation unbearably
tugging, shouldering,
remonstrating accumulation
of "baggage" thumb

of right hand thrust out
silently raving, quaking
cursing ultimatum parents
(soffit to fascia in)
saw fit to fashion
and hammer home

red hot poker rage
their singular male offspring
middle child of...Read More

One Never Knows, Keep Believing
Bushels please stop this we need our light to be sought

Thus caused the tearing down of a small storage house, to building a greater storage house.
Over time, he spent much of it being merry, selling small portions...Read More

Premium Member Integrity Embraces Diversity
System integrity can grow more deeply resonant
only as diversity grows more widely interdependent.

Diversely rich integrity
longs to universally emerge
unitarian yin-inclusive
and not uniformly yang-dominant,
exclusive
privileged
supremely kleptocratic.

An economic and ecological reason
Win/Lose capital wealth-accumulation values
trend toward historically WesternWhite male racist privileged mono-structures
is because we do...Read More

Congested Without Psychological Rheum
No antihistamine can

stripped mined wasteland qua sinkhole,

YOUR TODAY
Water is wet
Light is bright

And an accumulation of your yesterday

And the product will...Read More

Fiscal Calisthenics
The thing I least look forward to,
The root of my financial ills,
Is the vile administration
Of my monthly pile of bills.

Whose needs and wants are all but nil,
Could whiz through funds manipulation
