Addiction to Prison

A culture steeped in retribution
becomes blind to freedom's contributions
accessed best through healing restorations,
trust,
virtual stuff
for democracies most resilient.

WHY NOT

What’s wrong with our culture
That we’re so deathly afraid
To talk about death and dying

It’s a process we will all go through
In one way or another

Silent Killer
by Adam Forth
Abused.
Mistreated and used,
Thrown to your knees,
After being misused.

Just numb the pain,
Wait for her to succeed.

Your dignity dies,
Lying in wait,
As you say your goodbyes.

Quake.

I Stand Here
by Janice Canerdy
I
stand here
traumatized,
quaking in fear,
for I’ve realized
the intruder will know
I’m home—will see my half-done
e-mail and my still-hot cocoa.
Should I burst from this closet and run?	
Too late!...

Don't
by Gerald Dillenbeck
Don't speak of God's redemptive healing
while practicing idolatrous competitions in fear,
and self-righteous anger,
