Burn
Burn
by Michael R. Burch

for Trump

Sunbathe,
ozone baby,
till your parched skin cracks
in the white-hot flash
of radiation.

Incantation
from your pale parched lips
shall not avail;
you made this hell.
Now burn....Read More

i anticipated what was to come, 
the foreseeable future spread debris-
(often a routine when struggle succeeds)

when is normal normal?
if certainty becomes what i prepared for,
why am i so damn sad all the time…
unnourished with no energy to rhyme

Premium Member HOMELESS





 
Chased by destitute 
Sleeping in the streets himself found
With loneliness and despair as his only 
Companions.

In vain he tried to open hope's sails again 
For the winds of his dreams had died out
Due to unforeseen events, bad luck and...Read More

Take a good long look back, girls,
Through the history of humankind,
It is easy enough to see
What is now obvious to find.

Rake up "Man's inhumanity to Man," dears,
And particularly, to "Woman",
It is little more than a hundred years
Since real improvements began.

Do tell me sir was one so loved
That women fell at sun-dried feet
To refresh with tears such withered skin
To gain in touch a taste of sweet.

Driving heart and mind to direct these things

The world is calling out, 
for a time…
when things the are true, 
they are not, 
and they should be.
 
Undetermined, 
yet ordained opposites,
facts instead of dreams. . 

Lunacy.

Bipolar…

I thought I had known you so well,

you discovered at the end of the day 
the true me you hadn’t known yet.

Travesty

In the gathering,
Heard more people talk about love
That claims and owns    
Than peace.
Lost in those words was their world
That could move faith and loyalty
To shape their beliefs,
Found future lines,
Seek permanence 
That peace gives.

At the store, 
there was a sea of people. 
Not one or two or a thousand, 
drops from heaven,

On a parched land

Gazing over the land
the verdant mist of becoming
moist with the dew of life
glistening in the yellow rose warmth.

Gazing over the land
golden stalks of being
heavy with the fruit of life
swaying in the red orange heat.

Morning Cigarette
I'm nothing special 
And I ain't unique
But I know 
You dont feel
The same as me

Darling don't you know

A question answered
Asks a thousand more
Maybe cause I'm
Only asking questions 
On the floor

When I wake up 
And the sun is down
And my heads

As painful as your transparency is,
I appreciate the integrity you have found
to say this parting of shared habitations
has moved from temporary
to permanent
for you;
for us.

I would have preferred a resurrection
from temporary separation
to permanent mutual admiration,
but I trust you, too,
