A PhD in emotion and feel,
licentiate of what lives within

Professor of imagery, doctor of will,
a Saint with a penchant for sin

Explorer of evil with devils to hunt,
the fire burns liquid and hot

Degrees of atonement, diplomas unread
—graduate of words future bought

Was a virgin
long time
waited until he
pulled back that veil;
He kissed me for the first time.

I, never wanted to be
Handled nor touched,
he being my first,
I became weak, for the musk of him.
Innocence replaced with lust.

Through him, I learned to...Read More

Sweet blooms in golden hour's wake,
As a diploma is given with handshake.
To blue-gold skies over glassy lake,
Scarlet redbird, the clouds overtake!

Nature is alive, and so is the degree,
And just no telling what all will be!
Like midnight stars in afar enormity,

Fish make little of the fact
they matriculate in schools;
though fishermen opinionate
most fish are fools.

Humans too and in large numbers
in schools matriculate.
But would you dare opinionate
they’re smarter when they graduate?

As I watched our daughter watch her son graduate from college yesterday…
as our three generations aligned
I wondered if she was thinking what I once did…
If my same thoughts crossed her mind.

Was she wondering where the time went?

Stolen Statues

The glory of yesterday, 
taken down and destroyed. 
Pummeled into dust,
by those that stole their rights, 
to be where they are. 
They promised good things, 
and took away all that 
meant anything. 
They replaced our heroes
with shadows, 
and demanded,

Father at a loss to express care and concern for Punim
Helplessness immobilizes yours truly,
I genuinely agitate
permanently lasting indelible impact deux
biological offspring unfairly bore brunt,
compliantly, complicity, and complimentary
I avidly, doggedly, instinctively helped create

unpleasantly affected as adults facilitate

"My decision
is not any negative reflection
on you.
It's not personal."

This would be a Business School graduate,
meaning, if it is personal,
then it is not political or economic.

"It's your decision,
for you to personally
and responsibly make."

This would be a Social Work graduate,

Horses, bicycles and carts saved the bare-footed walks

Don't forget your valuables
I'm the one
Still wearing
The graduation cap
After we thrown them 
Like I just wanted to
Keep it on my head
For the whole day
Years have passed, my friends
How are you all doing
Seems like everything has changed
Yet nothing has
Still the immature kids

The Homecoming Mum

The mighty mum most represents our past homecoming dreams.
In yellow splendor it adorned the chests of grid iron queens.

For as we know it’s given birth in warm October sun
the Autumn time when we adore the gold Chrysanthemum.
