The Hindsight Family
The fidgeting lips of hypocrites 
sound the story they couldn’t predict, 
the Hindsight family carry the flame 
that rewinds backwards and assigns blame, 
something achieved with absent shame. 
They see it now they sight the wrong 
when before unsure as...Read More

Premium Member What's The Problem
What's the problem with homelessness,
other than the violence from which it comes
and toward which it further travels?

Why not ignore 
and grow tolerance
for the inevitability of caravans
of sojourners
on pilgrimage
toward mirages
of Uniting Promised Lands?

I have more immediately pressing
everyday problems--
trimming my nails,
drying the...Read More

A cruel birth, pregnancy poisoning

Last night I was mesmerized
by James Baldwin
in a documentary
"I Am Not Your Negro"

Medger, Malcolm, and Martin
who were shot in that order
within six years of each other,
all under age forty,
by guns newer nationalistic leaders of the NRA

A Mysterious Palace
Me and my friend was heading to somewhere by a car 
It was a dead and stormy night.
Suddenly the sky is crying helplessly.

There was lightening as well.

Humane Struggle
In the Congolese Jungle three men are training for a mission.
They train to detain and disarm poachers.
They hope this will be the conclusion of their efforts.
They also train for a formidable alternative.
Poachers are opportunistic and have only self interest.
Poaching of...Read More

The Baby
We need see baby is baby
Of human, whose may be,

This baby will be father or mother
At our age old
To find gold
We do see way no other.

Premium Member Lessons Learnt in Life
I have learnt a very painful lesson:
those you love most will hurt you the most.
Your heart, laid bear, is defenseless
There is no alternative.
You must risk all for love,
or live as one dead.
It is better
to love than
not to
is life
I'd rather

Rowing for Eternity
The rotting wood below my feet is stroked by the shadow of a chain
Which keeps my hands still, but busy; an agony in unison, afloat.

But the pain always finds...Read More

Understand, You Don't Understand

Some of us only want to kill the damned bleakness,

In your left
I walk with a spring

I shoot like a spring filled with jubilation
I’m an evergreen garden of flowers

White rose
A scream surrounded by grey walls is trying to get through 
on the wooden desk

Under construction geisha
Through the bank account
over painted naivety

it is so intense just to be here
between look and expectation
I'm just one step from alighting
to be
your personal abyss

in the same way that
high ranked husband
of well polished wife
pays to a prostitute
