poems from a broad: flying
my feet are on
the floor as the 
plane rolls down
the run way but

at some point

a feeling of
giving way

off the ground

Did you see?
Did you look?
What do think?
They are so…   …   ?

Words heard directly, 
indirectly or by accident, 
but never by intent. 
Not things you would say…
to anyone’s face,
especially theirs.
No! 
 
Not things you would sing.

Pure victory
Is a clean win important? 
And does it matter if it doesn't? 
That's my problem: 
Are the damage my words?

What do you have now? 
And you're no longer in debt,...Read More

No fatigue
You know, there is no fatigue yet, 
At least the whiskey was silvered. 
Lo and behold, the age is just a shock, 
And it turned my head terribly. 

I'm not tired, not at all! 
Where does age come from here?...Read More

There Is Freedom Within And Freedom Without
Though you may be poor,
There is no freedom without cash,
Worked hard for the dollar,
Until I hit the floor,
The poor has gift of time.
The rich in cash has no woe of money,
where there is no lack.
Not where the green dog can...Read More

The dream

The dream is mine
but this is you who are constantly ,
walking through
from morning till night
dancing and singing freely
without any fear.

Just like sparrows which flying
in the sky
from morning till night
dancing and singing freely
without any fear
even of my dreams.

Is silent the word

Is silent The word

In his arms

The arrow that they have shot through the eye.

We were defeated there

Where he has smiled a little.

Word by word

They have taken care.

Now scared.

Losing them

Heart has made him his own with great pride.

Is silent The word

Duet, Minor Key
Duet, Minor Key
by Michael R. Burch

Without the drama of cymbals
or the fanfare and snares of drums,
I present my case
stripped of its fine veneer:
Behold, thy instrument.

Play, for the night is long.

Is it my place to analyse
the verse of collegiate wonders
infused with metaphorical coffee
and rounded by imagery and cream?

Is it my place to find one meaning
then distractedly drop another,
while I chase a maze of knowing nods
across my careworn screen?
