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...

An Adverse World Uncurled

Poetically Pathetic Crow
Just enough to make it just
I want this to be enough to make this
The last song ever, the last note ever
The last romantically, poetically sad excuse for an apology, epilogue
But I've already messed up the...

"Oak" 

The guardians
stood around and 
shook their heads

great thoughts 
quivering 
from the ground, roots up, 

as if to walk 
confidently 
with great armies

yet hesitation 
was witnessed
in their waving gestures

perplexed 
and touching 
green crowns, 

there they...

The Board
by Michael R. Burch

Accessible rhyme is never good.
The penalty is understood?
soft titters from dark board rooms where
the businessmen paste on their hair
and, Walter Mitties, woo the Muse
with reprimands of Dr. Seuss.

What part of a heart
in another could one trust
when betrayal comes
like a silver bullet, words and deeds

Remote,
he sees himself 
in the reflection of cold close 
yet distant shop windows, 
his final journey along the 
Hard Time Road
walking alone, 
unforgiven, no home
for the rest of his natural life 
a million knives...

for my heart's
sharp edges.

Let me give her roses

Let the flowering of love
outlast a winter
season.
