Sex Hex
by Michael R. Burch

Love's full of cute paradoxes
(and highly acute poxes).

Midnight Stairclimber
by Michael R. Burch

Procreation
is at first great sweaty recreation,
then—long, long after the sex dies—
the source of endless exercise.

You hold the world in hands of blue
Hold us closely to Your chest

Words of A Dying God, Part II
...It was from an old colleague of mine,
in southern Russian working a new dig,
of Proto Indo-European tribes,
he believed it would be something big.

Wanted me to come out and take a look
at the artifacts they had found there,
claimed they had found...Read More

Adam With Tricks up his Sleeve
Husband Adam would brag to wife Eve:
"I have many a trick up my sleeve."
But alas!  He was nude
so — a sleeve-challenged dude.
That's why Eve was so hard to deceive.

If I Had The Time To Think About Compassion
If I have the time to think about compassion,
For it is not only there to give but also to share;
Humanity inevitably needs to have more care,
Action is a must and not to hide under compunction.

Empathy is a word that lost...Read More

and then i was made whole
and then i was made whole
by Michael R. Burch

... and then i was made whole,
but not a thing entire,
glued to a perch
in a gilded church,
strung through with a silver wire...

warbling higher and higher:

We Are Free
Our ancestors opened up the world for us
They freed us from physical slavery
Some died fighting
Some still living
And some lived to be old
Then died from old age and natural causes
So why are we still living with the slave mentality
Why are we...Read More

Daffodils In Bloom
Daffodils in bloom
We all did assume
But if they did die
We all know why
The sun is murder
Pushed ever further
By the uncaring
And religion is a red herring
For profit is their king
And his praises they sing
A path to green paved with bones
And a...Read More

What is it like to be dead?

Does anyone know the answer?
What is it like to be dead?
Something so hard to imagine,
Fills my existence with dread.

Infinite time of unconsciousness,
Like a Coma with no release.
Is it a thoughtless black void?

Glides into a new beginning somewhat reluctantly 
And no police sirens have been cutting the night
Till before and after sleep.
I will like to go to India. the vivaciousness of
The humanity intrigues...Read More

Stolen Statues

The glory of yesterday, 
taken down and destroyed. 
Pummeled into dust,
by those that stole their rights, 
to be where they are. 
They promised good things, 
and took away all that 
meant anything. 
They replaced our heroes
with shadows, 
and demanded,

Right To Be Different
Why does anyone infuse their life with vile actions? 
These people wait for something to happen
Yet they never make it happen themselves
They made their future by abusing people
They had no hope whatsoever
Love wasn’t in their dictionary. 
And whatever their beliefs,...Read More

In verity and with great hopes,
Malachy told his Prophecy of Popes!
Centuries ago, he was called to Rome,
Like the bees to their honeycomb.

There a beauteous vision did flower,
Of all remaining popes in their hour!
His sequence of most cryptic phrases,
From first to...Read More

Premium Member Disorganized Religion
As traumatized as I am
by the history of organized elitist creeds,
including religious and judicious,

I am even more terrified
by my experience of disorganized unnatural spirituality,
dissociated bicamerality,
unenchanting mono-laterality,
win/lose egocentrism,
narcissism,
flirting with lose/lose climates of nihilism,
anthropocentric chauvinism,
inhumane unnatural straight white male business as usual...Read More

Climate Masters
Peevish spell maligned mental management
Mother Earth sustains a form regardless

Control the “Religion of Climate” to bleach you
