Angels observe in un-articulated anguish from above,
 anxiety afflicted by appalling accelerated ambition of the aggregate  
that redefines the archaic, apocalyptical allure 
 driving humanity to its brink of active self annihilation;
those moments of antiquated adversarial abstractions
 when history...Read More

RIP John McCain
I didn’t vote for John McCain
And he was not elected,
But even to opponents,
He was honored and respected.

A navy pilot, captured and
Imprisoned and mistreated,
He never let his war years
Make him broken or defeated.

Most people, knowing of his past,
Consider him a hero.

The Crying River
Touch the rising mist of cherry smiles
Herald cries of joyous miracles aflight,
Echo brisk allure of God’s spearing light
Cry in the bosom of Abraham’s seed
Refrain the ways of fame and greed;
Yield to peace though hate overrules
Intimidate the wicked with warm arms
Negate...Read More

NDA
Keep the money,
if you keep your mouth shut
Feel free to speak openly on all things,
as long as the sealed information stays put
Let your bank account numbers go up,
as certain liberty restrictions get placed on lockdown
You willingly signed on the dotted...Read More

Dying Friendship
When a celebration feels like a business dinner...
When you judge not the sin, but condemn the sinner...
When silence is deafening...
When you wish for an ending...
When every word is laced with disinterested contemptuous ire...
When everything you say stokes an imminent cannon...Read More

The Fraudulent Magician
For seven days I perform magic for a crescent 6 year-old girl. 
I bring rainbows indoors with an arc that wraps itself around her curiosity. I bring stories/fairy-tales to life. Fire-breathing dragons: secret potions, kings, princes and of course the...Read More

Healthy families can be quick to anger
but, if so, they have also learned to be quick to forgive,
forgiveness redeems anger and fear to again risk mutual trust.

Partisan political leaders are not leading when they,
immersed in adversarial power positions,
are slow to...Read More

Sudden windy gust
Plays havoc with hair;
Air pregnant with rain


Torrential rain falling
Sky oozing water;
Viscous as oil


Long long queue
Taxi stand centipede;
No cab in sight


Common complaint
Common folks echo;
Too little time


By reservoir park
Bench wet with dew;
Curious eyes detect


Morning jog
Wilderness feeling;
Reservoir park circuit


My darling sleeps
Sweet...Read More

Islands

Islands are – it seems – so many of us.
Worlds apart – alone – in the seas of life.
Joined at the hip – by an adversarial universe.
Amputated from a living solar system
 by the master surgeons – insecurity, self doubt,
criticism,...Read More

Fear is running rampant throughout our great nation
Some fearing guns; some that they’ll be taken
The battle line is being drawn quite bold and quite wide
With propaganda being spread full of lies from both sides

Such contempt and mistrust has infested this...Read More
