Ode to a Dental Hygienist
They uphold tradition in grandiose style
And whilst toasting the Queen before dinner
In crystal cut goblets, the rank and the file
Raise glass to their lips in the glimmer
With can descant lighting inside a great hall
And tables all groaning with splendor
A huge...Read More

Self Destructive Self-Defense Mechanism
Gorging upon self-indulgence
while your soul lies starving in the corner
Dissociatively liberated from consequence
as the host endures accountability

Psychotically clinging to a desirable fiction
(an accessible and depraved fantasy)
and basking in its soothing narratives
whenever the tangible becomes inconvenient

Dipping sporadically into a permeable

My friend had come over
To cure me of ennui
That could kill me.
I thought he had with him
His collection of latest narratives
To divert and ease my mind.

‘I do not know the unreal,
I am a stickler for the truth.’
He professed and said-
‘I...Read More

Premium Member Stories Are Not Songs
But songs are a musical story.

I know a difference
between  telling a story
and voicing these same lyrics
of anxiety and ease,
of bearing and healing injustices,
medicine for well-earned peace.

I feel a difference
between progressive story telling,
between historically accurate autobiography,
and singing cultural passion narratives,

Where do we think all this economic and politically empowering
organically luscious imagination
and ecologically exegetical orthopraxis

George Lakoff speaks of strictly straight stern paternalistic God the Universalist Fathers,
vertically Winning over an otherwise Loser, yet highly competitive, ecopolitical world
and ecologically survivalist-separatist
human parasite-divine supremacist

Bardster Messina
Our bro with poetic gift
the Bardster Messina lets loose
with free verse and  narratives.
or rhymes and rare monokus.

Though fun is his major style 
he can write emotional.
He’s witty and versatile
his psalms, quite devotional.

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

I Take Them To Battlefields
I have several young nephews
who will come over quite a bit,
I take them out on adventures
so they can get something of it.

Some folks would go to Disneyland,
go on rides that make them squeal,
that’s fine enough, but I instead
take those kids...Read More

Premium Member Earth's Body of Teaching
Encultured bodies teach in binary history
of masculine elite win/lose entitled living dominance
and feminine non-elite sadly dying recessive
bipolar cultures.

Elite white straight males
of Western mind
and patriarchal heartlessness
learn to produce predative efficient seeds
donated to preferably receptive women
to carry

Afterlife Azaleas rise as apparitions 
Boney Buttercups bathe in blooming moon light

Crossing The Swamp

The enemy within if unchallenged,
Will destroy the country to achieve power.
Singing and composing to deceive the innocent,
Spinning narratives to suit their agenda.

For them, the country is a tool to use,
To satisfy their selfish interests.
They hate Jesus, Christians and...Read More

Premium Member What happens to the unborn
Where go the unborn?
no breathe shall draw in this world
no rocking or lullabies
no breast shall comfort
no earthly mother to hold
reborn miraculously

From pages the book
divine narratives bestowed
transformed to cherub angels
deliver blessings
illuminate consciousness

Premium Member Liberating Migrations
I was listening, last night,
to a sympathetic defense
for conserving liberal arts
and producing deeper and wider liberating sciences
including healthy democratic
politically empowering science.

Once again
I am hearing about the persuasive prominence of identity,
how we label our ego-political selves,
as more important than personal nutritional...Read More

Premium Member Poetic License to Heal
I recently read a politically incorrect prolific poet,
or so I thought at the time,
or more felt than thought,
more truthfully,

Who said, If poetry is politically correct,
it cannot be poetry.

So, if he is politically correct
in this statement,
is he thereby also not a...Read More

The "Wagon Man"
"Wagon John" Harrel
Written: by Tom Wright

Glaring, glinting eyes,
set deep in a weathered face.
One scant peek revealed,
his life, at warp speed pace.

A mask filled with time ruts,
with narratives to relate.
Stories of life, and alcohol,
that weren't all too great.

It’s Kevin, and I am NOT home alone.
I’m in Miami with my family.
Just talked to Buzz, my brother, on the phone;
and like last year, he’s angry as can be.

Twice now, we’ve had...Read More
