It had been a hellish week.

On Monday
my lonely and tired AfricanAmerican husband
told me, as gently as possible,
that what I had hoped was a temporary separation
is to be extended into perpetuity.

This separation had been scheduled to terminate
when my Fetal Alcohol daughter...Read More

Premium Member Dangerous Liaisons - Now With Notes
Is it ‘friendship’ you proffer (to strangers who ask)
If you’re ‘sap for sad stories,’ deny other’s truth,
If you’ve something to barter, a ‘twit’ for ‘twat’ thought, (1)
Good advice you call ‘currency,’ aids in some plot
In which you stand to prosper,...Read More

Premium Member When I Was Eight
I owned a warm breezed first Spring day
in radiantly refulgent sun
between billowed cumulative clouds
white as sailing sheets
on our vibrating 
shaking and tugging cotton clothesline
swaying multi-colored tops
and sun bleached blue jean bottoms.

Like God,
I looked curiously
benignly
warmly down

As industrious ants
with apparently urgent missions

Show me your soul
All type of bodies are posing in front of me
All type of bodies are trying to attract me

Rhythm-less body with no shape
Walking aimlessly around the place
I am not interested in any of them
even if they...Read More

while visitors struggle with impossible fees to stay and offering deeds.

I have USA raised

I look up,

Some things are like that,

but regardless,
hope...

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 us.

from temporary separation
to permanent mutual admiration,
but I trust you, too,

Speaking With NonBully VoiceBoxes

Dissociative injustice,
like racist slurs and disinvestments,
retributive oppression
for not being SWM enough,
has ecological roots
in LeftBrain anthro/ego-centered fruit
of fragile disconnected autonomy,
against all competing odds
still struggling to win
against all other elitist competitors
for greatest capital gains
over losses.

in RightWing militarized marching squares,

As traumatized as I am
by the history of organized elitist creeds,

I am even more terrified
by my experience of disorganized unnatural spirituality,

I have questions
about spiritual problems
with natural causes.

These questions
themselves
assume a metaphorical double-bind
co-passion in-between
Left with Right hemispheres
in Nature with Spirit bilateral dialogue

What has "nature v spirit" tension meant

On Sunday, 
The saints gather…
Not the normal service, 
later, when others…
are home. 

They are quiet,

They have come,

God!
They have come, 
not for themselves, 
but for others.

She was short-spoken, curt, and abrupt.

Shower me with your love…

Observe pain as it streams from sky blue eyes;
burning and insuppressible, unshed tears
