Step right up, buy your ticket, wait in anticipation to see the show, the one beneath the tent that holds all the dreams I never wanted to be exposed

Still Standing
Standing across the street she would always pray the rosary
In the cold, rain and heat, among the bustle, there she would be
Women would come and women would go, but there she just prayed
A daily continuous flow, as on this woman's...Read More

Premium Member Morals from the Dung Beetle
In the open plains of African savanna 
Amidst its fields of fruits and bananas
A beetle races from its deep hiding
To gather more food for the morning!

A tiny black bug, glowing in the sand
It shoots across the sun-dried land
Busy pace and...Read More

Tongue :: Triple Lento

Pray…. ‘May God bless us to use tongue correctly’;
They say tongue is powerful force HE has given.
Say wise words carefully, it may bring joy or can be deadly;
Way of presentation of thought is an art, for rest to listen.

Another Mass Shooting
This time in Jersey City
Another mass murder 
Was it a hate crime? 
At least six souls have gone to meet their Maker

The USA is a violent country 
And the killing took...Read More

Stark realization, I harbor sacrilegious objection...

Against merry christmas premature blowout,
(or otherwise) ejaculation galore burnout,
hence I feel like the odd man out
neither yours truly, nor the missus

pushing, racing, shoving...

Miklos Radnoti translations of Holocaust poems
Postcard 1
by Miklós Radnóti
written August 30, 1944
translated by Michael R. Burch
Out of Bulgaria, the great wild roar of the artillery thunders,
resounds on the mountain ridges, rebounds, then ebbs into silence
while here men, beasts, wagons and imagination all steadily increase;

Twas the night before Christmas;
As Mrs. Klaus was washing dinner dishes;
Santa is at the workshop;
He’s got a cold, sucking on cough-drop;

While walking through the snow;
Frozen his left foot pinky-toe;
Had too much cough syrup;
Was so dizzy leaving fell on reindeer stirrups?

I Kept On Walking
Of an august-like, autumn day:

I kept on walking
Bespoke in dust-coated
Check jacket,
Check pants,
Polo-neck jersey ...
I rambled destinationless:
A la les sapeur - 
The gods,
The directors,
Were focusing on me - 
Me the starring only

I kept on walking
In all my sartorial glory, consciously
Deadened unto...Read More

Premium Member BODY COUNT
The casualties rose
We couldn’t keep a body count
mass graves dotted the landscape

a toddler screaming
countless villages ablaze
unholy despot glories

nuclear seared ground
mustard gas permeates air
rancid poison is swallowed

no hiding spots found
drum tap of the machine guns
decimate remaining dreams

a day of greed
A time for drunkenness
children spoiled rotten with expensive gifts
Those who are devout celebrate
goes for a midnight mass
all worshipping

Love Over Matter

A brain which is a mass of cells, 
Succumbs to what the heartbeat tells,
Who needs to use their 
Minds over molecules,
Rather become fools,
And so win jewels!

We The Loyal Kick Dog
the defeated being
in the slogan of conqueror

the dependent lame child
in the independent constitution

the blind activist voter
in the eye witness breast of sun

the wounded survivor
on the cured smiling of mass-leader

the rumor of political price hike
in the barren womb of onion

A tribute to Gauri Lankesh
Her woes weren't on her life in siege 
But the forerunner of fate's besiege 
Her guts sensed an unknown chill
As faceless men stalked her in dark.

Speaking truth, half of men turn foes
Other half silent in fright of a regime,
A force...Read More

In diversities do we find varieties 
Proving the infinity of The Creator.
For us these are but differences 
To raise the sword to kill and claim.
Unwise not to know truth of our lives
Every crooked line is straight in parts.

As clock marks...Read More

The Composition of Shadows
The Composition of Shadows
by Michael R. Burch

“I made it out of a mouthful of air.”—W. B. Yeats

We breathe and so we write; the night
hums softly its accompaniment.
Pale phosphors burn; the page we turn
leads onward, and we smile, content.

And what we...Read More

Bolivia 2019
And so the struggle continues: 

As reactionaries are led to the moral grave by the corpse of the dole,
And the peaceful march in hesitant resistance, 
And the unloved proffer fettered hearts, 
And unfettered hearts respond to loveless fury, 
And seeds...Read More

To convey the sunset in the demise of our children
