Carnal Crucifixion
He said "Give me one last kiss. A way to say goodbye. I know you want to."
But I am no one's last supper. I will not serve the last feast to the one who crucified me.

Inflictions of whiteness
A white Santa showed a child the skin tone of the top brass
A white doll to an innocent black girl contrasts ugliness

A white wedding was beauty redefined as a cloak on a lass
A white Jesus, before we repented, repainted righteousness

Chaucer translation: Rejection
a roundel by Geoffrey Chaucer
loose translation/interpretation by Michael R. Burch

Your beauty from your heart has so erased
Pity, that it's useless to complain;
For Pride now holds your mercy by a chain.

I'm guiltless, yet my sentence has been passed.
I tell you truly,...Read More

Upon our first meeting, fear ran to my fingertips.
Within a few choice words,
The tingling became the titillation of lust.

You opened a door, its hinges rusted,
its boards warped by time.
The sirens in my soul sang to me, warning of the danger

sweet little one
so tiny
a sleeping beauty
a mother’s pride
in premium exclusivity
a ticking mystery
the single aunt’s enigma

State of perception placates
sun or moon

dreamlike lays or lucidity

turning in and tuning out

exuberantly in the echo chamber of the heart

arrows bent and often missed

Are Poets Truly Born To Be Cannon Fodder

Heart struck, blood-let by black arrows thus shot
within soul- can not poetry reward,
those that ink giving freely all they got
playing face up, each and every card?

When I was young my mother's hand
Led me through a joyful land
Where neither war nor hate exist
Nor something more I must resist 

Where nothing but the night is black
And black is never dark for lack
Of something bright or greater light

I wish I were a favorite poem,
with world waking verse.
One easily remembered 
and often rehearsed.

I wish I were love. 
All kinds of love,
specially the kind 
from heaven above.

I wish I were
the perfect Kiss,
that moment of supreme bliss 
the kind you...Read More

A cool whistling breeze precedes the first light
My curtains dance at the window filtering though the daylight
A sound of a distant cock crow and chirping birds
Are like protest against my guilty lazy bones still in bed
I breathe the innocence of...Read More

What? I'm not eating your roses.

Premium Member I'm sorry I made a mess
In fleeting amusement, hair of sunlight
and brown cinnamon, powder scent soft skin,
rosy cheeks and freckles on her little nose;
runs round and round, behind curtains
and furniture, knocking down pictures;
chased after by her hound in waves of laughter.

A faithful and constant companion,

Innocence confronts a world that’s corrupt
addicted to sin
and thrill of the win,
where suppressed emotions spew and erupt.
Although naught is said
innocence gets shed.
And as children prepare for reality
trading fantasy dreams for hyperbole,
time chases its shadow.

But adolescence’s adrenaline rush
sets you free at...Read More

In All Innocence
Children in the schoolyard pierce the sky with vital cheer.
Their joyful octave shouting wrecks the register.
Vernal offspring sounds wing and zoom like morning moths,
over Eiffel Tower challenges ahead.
Let us celebrate these golden moments short-lived though they are, as they cannot...Read More

Innocence Lost
Her hair was fire her eyes the sea,
standing face to face your no longer free.
Like a spell that's cast your minds not your own,

Ah to be three again
to have the world

The affection of strangers
To strangers we portray a first impression of our choice
We always employ the a natural tone in my voice
A stranger’s curiosity evokes our own
Mistrust clouds us, kindness is easier to reckon

Their amicable innocence is like a mirror
That cedes unadulterated judgments...Read More
