Village in the Valley
Village in the Valley left behind, and then it's a fine find
Mountain in the making...in the dark alleys of my mind

In the night
You are a friend 
Till the end
Bite the bullet
You're the village...

When it struck 11, I sighed in relief
When it struck 11, I haven't felt grief

Vigorously feeling vital everyday...
Every minute...every second...come...

Regret
by Michael R. Burch

Regret,
a bitter
ache to bear...

once starlight
languished
in your hair...

a shining there
as brief
as rare.

Regret,
a pain
I chose to bear...

unleash
the torrent
of your hair...

The Tender Weight of Her Sighs
The Tender Weight of Her Sighs
by Michael R. Burch

The tender weight of her sighs
lies heavily upon my heart;
apart from her, full of doubt,

Let me speak clearly with you
dear religious and atheist Trumpians,

A fool in executive office
is a leader
only in foolish directions.

A rich thief
is the worst thief
as survival motives
are absent,
so self-thrival motives
remain piratically rampant.

An intellectual prostitute

A prayer for God to bless NativeAmericans
