A Pool of Blood
Blood spilling in the east running all the way to the west
Forming rivers of doubt in the north and South
An army of men converge along the river bank
With long guns strapped to their sides
And big army bags parachuting from their...Read More

Premium Member Ten Ways to Awake in February
You’re a hollow tree, listening
to the tapping claws of am exposed sky.

You sit sideways staring over your shoulder.
A rib cage full of naked troglodytes
looks up into your throat.

Wintery seas leak over ice-bound rooftops.
Bedsheets stiffen into ersatz snowdrifts.

You find yourself observing...Read More

Premium Member Bear UP --or Bear DOWN
A curious word is BEAR, just like the animal whose name it BEARS:

We BEAR UP under pressure, yet we also BEAR DOWN
Should a dog BARE its teeth, it's much worse than a frown

The right to BARE arms---not the right to...Read More

Premium Member Pirates Without Ships
Beware of pirates without a ship
like rebels without a transportive WinWin cooperative cause,
like ego-politicians without sacred ecological-economic portfolios.

One of the ways we communicate cooperative values
and choose not to communicate disvalues
is by how and where and when
we show up
and disappear into...Read More

Mom
In wasted hours spent alone
I grieve over forgotten times departed
The candle slowly burns down
While the thin line of remembrance
Trails off and away from me-forever?
'Tis not enough just to experience life
But to also lap precious memories
When times of trouble bear down
And...Read More

Winds of change
I feel the winds of change
Blowing through my hair
All the beauty of the sun
It shines upon my skin

Today it is a new day
A time for inner peace
Time to heal all the afflictions
That bear down hard on me

Some were self inflicted

Way up there in the Colorado mountains at around 9000 feet,
There once was a thrivin' village that served as the county seat.
It was a boom and bust town that now lies in desolate shambles,
Its one-time stately buildin's now overgrown with...Read More

A Bridge Over Troubled Waters
If this night you suddenly find
you have lost all faith in mankind,
need I say anymore, I care.
A resourceful comrade, I’ll be -a
friend in your dreadful green se-a.  

I'm willing to help guide your boat;
sailing wild, can we keep her...Read More

Sargasso Sea
Becalmed, the doldrums bear down frowning.
Hull fouled by weeds, persistent barnacles.
The ship is steadfast in her silence, 
The light alone enough to shatter us.

Beyond us, off the bow the dolphins plunge
And leap toward home
While we, a company of refugees, 
Lie...Read More

Heaviness
Loads and loads
Heavy loads
So many loads
That I need
No,
To much for me
So why not, 
Let it go
Too much weight
No more room
But why do I wait
When the seas are enraged
Why do I, hesitate
To save myself
Placing this stuff
Back on the shelf
Only to bear...Read More

Words for pictures found in an old children's book
Joy in work means joy in life,
And where none shirk there is no strife.

Bear down there, young man;
The wheel's in your hand.
Steady, set to it;
You know you can!

The glorious softness of multi-colored earth
And the glad straight rows of man, proving...Read More

This feels to be the Last Frontier
Of the Great Urban Conquest.
I remain, day by excruciating day,
Steadily engaged in my paralysis.
Should I walk the streets with flying papers?
Humming the optimistic tune of the gravedigger?
City lights and morbid nights,
Keep your cheer in...Read More

Red Dawn of Warning
A warm Sunday morning in December
on the fringe of the tenants of freedom.
The sky was ablaze with the colors
that God had painted there.

Small birds of prey fly in flocks,
the coral disc ornates their wings.
They enmass to block out the light.

little concept, BIG thought
Little box warms me
Heat on my neck
But I don’t close the vent
I’d rather be hot, than feel nothing.
And inside it’s so dark
Turn my head right
All the lights
“Bear Down Bears”
Suddenly we’re so spirited
Wish we could be spirited about the right things.
So...Read More

Bury The Dead
The rain pours down my face while lights flash in the distance

Among the ones once living, I choose the path of most resistance

Blood, sweat, tears, and rain mix as I grasp the wooden sentencer

Condemning to eternity the demons while my...Read More
