This Is Feminist Us
absence, anger, fear, humor, integrity, mental illness, military,
It's peaceful here in my backyard.
The crows sound happy
with warm October sunlight.
I just read about a deadly gathering in Las Vegas.
Absence of sun-drenched peace.

competing smaller self-centered investments.

Only the sea gulls
absence, culture, fear, health,
An old Greek word, ecclesia,
is often translated as church,
but could also be thought of as a civilization
as a citizenry
acting as responsible citizens.
The noun side of Ecclesia

of democratic and economic cooperative systems,

abuse and neglect,
lack of caring,
as a "conspiracy"...
What I Didn't Know
absence, culture, health, love, political, power, psychological, trust,
People, Places, and Things I Didn't Know I Trusted
I rather suddenly, and belatedly,
realized I trust the highest and best use for language,

Fuller Ironic Future
