Premium Member Pale shelter
Ashen was the sky 
That rejected hand of sunrise
Sullen was the heart
That stumbled in affection,

Incapable of lauding
Ruby blush of budding rose
And pink passions on horizon
Defying darkened woes.

In midst of a vibrant spring
Her garden blooms curled up
Amid hostile dry weather,

Teared-up, she...Read More

The Salon Of Forbidden Thought
The Salon of Forbidden Ideas
is a place where the free-thinkers go
to express their unsanctioned opinions
and explore what they aren't meant to know...

At twilight, they slip through the shadows
of the alley 'twixt Far-Left and Right,
wearing black masks and cloaks of red...Read More

Premium Member It Never Really Happens
THE TELEPHONE RINGS BUT I WON'T ANSWER
THERE'S TOO MANY THINGS I DO NOT RECALL
KEEP SEEING YOUR FACE INSIDE THE RAIN THAT SPLASHES ON MY WINDOW
I DROVE ALL NIGHT TO WATCH THE STARLIGHT FLICKERING ON THE ROAD

WE SAID SO MANY THINGS...Read More

This is red
This is anger..
This is indignation..
This is lividity..

This is red.

Squall
There, in that sunny arbor,
in the aureate light
filtering through the waxy leaves
of a stunted banana tree,

I felt the sudden monsoon of your wrath,
the clattery implosions
and copper-bright bursts
of the bottoms of pots and pans.

I saw your swollen goddess’s belly
wobble and heave

Tapestry Of Belonging

The forlorn wasteland of deprivation traversed
by my indigent life that tried so very hard long 
to smoothen the angularities of obtuse mind.
Swirling in egregious whirlpool of indignation,
sucked into the abyss of despondent delirium,
I searched out for me a path of...Read More

Premium Member Fragmented Responsibilities
What would it take
to understand
a right to life
includes a right to choose well-being
or failure
for one's internal identities,
organs,
organisms?
AND
A right to choose
self-embodied empowerment,
health,
is a right to life redemptive choice
over deadening felt loss
of continuous healthy lifetime,
now present
and on through long-term future identities,

Birthing success
Shout and taunt me
Push me down,
Strip away my pride
Leave me nude,
Naked and confused.
Look at my bone of
Indignation
Is this all you'd hoped to see
I have more.
The cloth of my skin
Hides all
As the cloth of man hides nought.
Herein is to be found

Premium Member Where was Venus yesterday
Crick-crack shoulder blades
Locking as the tension rises
Precious passion spits and fades 
beneath the ash of compromises
Where was Venus yesterday?
Pruning roses? Plumping cushions?
Where was Venus yesterday
when romance slipped away? 

Slingshot flings the words
Razor wire that bursts my sparkle
Cage shattered, sirens heard
Siege...Read More

Premium Member The time has come
The time has come to damp down gridlock and polarization
  For the country's citizenry to treat each other with basic decency
    To stop resorting, at the slightest offence, to righteous indignation
The time has come...

Premium Member The internet Troll
The keyboard warrior
beats his desk. 
his indignation he does express
towards his fellow man.
The cost of bread. 
The colour red.
The tone of what you type.
Which boxer will win tonight's fight.
He pulls no punches 
tells lots of lies
and always calls names to...Read More

Boogie Woman comes in between my cell layers at night
She punches me up and charges me up into my fierce fighting mode
I yell and scream my truth and she laughs, gulping my rage and my indignation.

The Spider's Reproach
Upon a walk, I took the time, 
To sit beneath a tree. 
I paused a moment, to light a smoke, 
when small voice spoke to me. 

"If it please you Sir, I must insist,
you do not light that fag."
"My lungs,...Read More

Premium Member Rejecting her plea to renegotiate what was
Evoking sullen quests of a lonesome mind
She stepped outside under the starry skies
Only to find, one more time, no one replied

It was a vibrant sky celebrating moonlight
Wanting no part of her gloomy trespass
Jolting her entrance in thunderous clouds

Being self absorbed...Read More

Leave Them Laughing
She, Gilda, would run into wall -
he, Chevy, orchestrate fumbling fall -
simply to invoke chuckle, chortle,
titter, spontaneous guffaw.

Carol’s impersonation of lone cleaner,
Bob’s deadpan unsmiling demeanor,
spoke on some basic level to all -
providing service of social screener.

She, Joan, of clever deprecation...Read More

In the late 60's and 70's,
They were called "Pigs."
In 2019, with a population
Gone mad,
Now it's graves for them we dig, 
Oh how terribly cruel and sad!

No, not the killers, though!
They are set free to live
in Sanctuary Cities, you see.
Some Americans just do 
Not want law and...Read More

Dedication to Poets

In our world,  no matter which
nation,
We all experience loss and suffer
Great indignation.
Poetry is the land of the free,
Where love,life and liberty can still
be expressed ever so freely.

It's a refreshing break from bogus
news for me.

The harvest
These leavings are devastating. 
I feel husked and scraped
The cobb cast on the bin
While destiny enjoys my entrails.
A continuos cycle of harvest
Where heaven recieves the best
And the living are trodden by fate. 
I have words of comfort

You said to me
"I want to be buried here
Under that little citrus tree..."
You smiled, decidedly
I looked at you perplexed
This was after your disdainful speech to me

I imagine queuing in the quiet, mournful strings
As a dim light illuminates your broken frame

I regret the sway, scope and exposure of groups
who perpetuate race and gender nincompoop.

Of course, we are all born equal, come on people!
Upheaval from such is ignorance most feeble. 
I bemoan society’s rationality
that steers away from individuality.
