Cultural ownership,
disproportionately lavished upon kings,
the occasional ecopolitical queen,
white male Republican Senators,
elite corporate CEOs
overdriving inside monocultural management
feeding consumer acquisitive appetites

Leads to cultural entitlement

Elitely leads to cultural appropriation,
where I win appropriate proportions
at your loser disproportionate misfortune,

And,
sometimes to multicultural creolization,
where everyone wins Golden...Read More

Acquisitive anguish arising within my acceptant abyss

The creatures that lurk within the deep 

Are without hope and sustenance

I awake aimlessly with thoughts that have gone awry

Every nuance of my being accumulating auspicious hell

For amidst the atrocious abdominous appetites

I linger in...Read More

Scared to Death of

These things are passing
temporary in their afflictions of
to be dealt with in problematical
or carried a brick of sacks
slung this weight upon the back
to weigh a feathers heart
against solutions search

These things are transient
present in busy most ephemeral knots
such worries jury-rigged encumbering

THE QUEST
None keeps its inventory
But it creeps into a story
A story of a modern society
Which is plural in nature;
Partly of a rural nurture
Partly of an urban stature
Yet must remain together
Lest it falls a part 
For unity is strength. 

For  peace.

Kimberly
Certain Summers remain uppercase, 
all blue, heat and breakneck.  We daughters of the season,
off-key in synchronicity, played out
the inborn cool of our age..
You and I came up through a flowery, fulsome time
that thought highly of itself, all laissez-faire but

SKIN DEEP
Peel the refinement and what have you got
A human being who's still an animal at heart 

They will not admit they share an animal's nature
It won't happen..…they believe they're a different creature

They've lost their fur, their claws, their teeth
That's superficiality,...Read More

Imagine you live in a daily environment
where and when everything you like
is already yours if you simply ask for this whatever with gratitude,
and is more frustratingly ungraspable if you cannot acquire sufficient gratitude to ask.

And, it doesn’t even matter whom...Read More

Premium Member Were You There
Were you there
when we nailed health culture
to the cross?

Weren't you there?
I thought we were all there!
Wasn't that our Big Bang of an Idea?

Let's just forgive each other for all that angry history
of hurt and loss and painful suffering,
torture and lapses...Read More

Buried Alive
Each second slips away seamlessly,
Yet if only in this moment,
Contemplating like an allegro within my mind,
Always inquiring and acquisitive for answers,
Nothing ever manifests to be within reach,
Knowing my only certainty is this confusion,
Always tossing away my freedom’s,
Understanding nonexistence seems my...Read More
