Premium Member I Love the Furniture Flipper Shows
I love the furniture flipper shows
Where people buy old furniture, fix it up
And sell it for hopefully a profit

The furniture I love often remains unsold
Whereas the items I think will never sell
Are usually the first things to be purchased

As these...Read More

Nuremberg to Washington
Nuremberg, Nuremberg, I’ve done nothing wrong
only followed orders, the children only song.
First it was the word, next it was the book
then it was history, surreptitiously they took.

From a child’s birth, others choose the way 
raising children skillfully, parents have no...Read More

Is the Mirror Unkind, for an Anorexic
Is the Mirror Unkind?, for an Anorexic
by Michael R. Burch

for anyone struggling with self-image and self-worth

She has a comely form
and a smile that brightens her dorm...
but she’s grossly unthin
when seen from within;
soon an entire campus will mourn.

Yet she’d never once...Read More

All that is seen and unseen, said and unsaid

This truth of mine
As a child, I learned that life is cruel
And justice is blind
My loving family filled with secrets and care
All I ever wanted 
A love to call my own
A place to be unafraid of my surroundings 
Why am I ever denied
Leaving...Read More

Land of the Free


Oh! Thou sweet land of the free, ????

You paved the way so others could find their ways

Where men of letter fought for a better day, 

And find solutions without delay.
 

Oh! The first daughter of Africa ????

"Dead Crush"



Oh uplift me woman
if we were to have a 
conversation would 
bees fly out of your mouth
or just mewling, simpering 
watered-down honey
not so pristine, just soft
and somewhat 
ingratiatingly tainted
you ply uplifting
romantic notions
like an air raid 
shelter bombing

Ana
Starving stomach, food in the brain,
Some say disease, others say vain.

Her new friend Ana, showing the way,
Worshipping scales, twice a day. 

To her, she is way more than fat
to others, way thinner than flat.

The built in rule, let food in,
And...Read More

don't fall in love
don't fall in love 

Loving him in a romantic way
From a one way street till endless highways 
Till he signaled no entry sign
I was a fool or maybe the luckiest of all
For some people,
That happens once in a lifetime
Or
For others,

Premium Member Four Year Old Rule Maker
You have to. We have to. They have to. Someone has to.
We are all astounded by her sheer bossiness. 
She is four, and already wants someone to have rules.
She likes being the rule maker.

You have to say “please”. This makes...Read More

Premium Member Try One She Said
The healthy foods do not appeal to me.
Carrots. Nope. Radishes. Na-dah.
Peanut butter. Yes! Chocolate! Uh-huh! 
Apple pie with ice cream.
I dream of these things. 

Someone brought something foreign to lunch.
Try it! She said. It is wonderful. A healthy snack.

Premium Member Being Aware of Impossible Things

(a prose-poem)

He was very young, he knew that he relied on others to think, 
live and survive, although survival was an unknown planet in an 
as yet, unread comic book.

He spent much of his time in that garden.

I RAISED MY VOICE
I raised my voice…
My voice to say what I believe;
To show others what I perceive,
But you tormented me in grieve.

I raised my voice…
My voice to show I matter;
To prove I wasn’t least nor latter,
But you discarded it as idle chatter.

TRUTH INTHE WINE
If you have sense 
Do sensible things 
lf you can reason then 
Do rational things
If you can talk talk aright
When you're permitted
To see don't see doom
Learn not to condemn
The foolish acts of others 
Without pouring them 
The water of solution

It is high time
It is high time we gave credit
To those men who are not violent to women and other men.
To those men who turn away from hate and self pity.
To those men who have died trying to protect women.

Looking For Purple
How does one interpret,
Everyday moments

We all want clarity and forthrightness,
So why the discombobulated torment

Of words that distort the facts,
Untruthful twisted personal attacks

The world is a grand stage,
Where reputations can be made

Or lost,
By words tossed

Without validity,
Or connection to reality

Yet the guilty...Read More

Change
Change is hard for everyone,
But attitude helps you overcome 

The hesitation to try something new,
Because of a positive  “can do”

Erases the doubt,
And gives you clout

To accept a new challenge,
Perhaps learn a new talent

Or change with the times,
Leaving the past...Read More

Take A Chance
How often do you regret,
Questioning what you suspect

To be an opportunity missed,
Wanting to do over, you wish

Another chance,
To improve your circumstance

Please let me try,
I won’t let this one go by

Without fear,
It’s perfectly clear

With fear,
Success is no where near

So why do...Read More

Choices
Our life is defined by choices,
Improved by the ones avoided 

Each day making me,
I want to believe 

But what if I had chosen differently,
I wonder what would have become of me

How much of me would be the same,
Or would I...Read More

Feet
Feet


They first appear propped up
at the end of the bed naked as if 
they had just sprouted from my ankles.

I rarely give thought to my feet, 
much less the feet of others, aesthetically, I mean, 
unless attached to polished marble,...Read More
