It is Called Love
It split you apart
You bled free tears to rejoice
You discovered words in your heart
You found a new self and a devout voice

It slit you in half
It took away your weakness
Superseded it with new wings of life
To fly you to where...Read More

Flowing into healthy sun
Beams subtle on my face
Mama’s ills are often none.

Hands sparkle, vibrancy attack
Fears and woes superseded

Encapsulation Versus Elaboration
Encapsulation Versus Elaboration...

Therefore, I opted to
reduce heavy sedation
within unsuspecting reader rabbit
summarization superseded elaboration,
less reason spurring salacious secretion
i.e. a-z expletive epithet, et cetera laced

nor this ditto anonymous

The Bloody Road to Calvary
© Ben Burton 4/11/2019

They scourged this common criminal, the man who would be king
He was a Jew and that alone was reason to demean
In bawdy reverie they whipped Him, calling Him a joke
They cloaked His nakedness...Read More

My wife is away to the mountains
My wife is away to the mountains, visiting her folks.
She left the windows guarded
With curtains made out of her shadows.

Last night the moon peeped in through the dark embroidery,
But failed to seduce me as I was secured in the possessive...Read More

MY HEART SINGS MELODY

When I bow to pray, and say help from God
When I sing until, my throat hollow clots
What I feel inside, my heart sings melody

She wants a child but not a man
Only his seed will do
And when the child is born she’ll say

We’ll be a team, you’ll be my prince

’My child, you’ll be completely mine

Premium Member Consciousness only is
Consciousness-only is..

Of vital importance
in this our time's moment..
To realize 
with living transparency 
the only-ness
of Consciousness..
Separation dissolves

Second Choice
The restaurant was noisy;
We shouted when we talked.
If I had been from Boise,
I’m sure I would have balked.

But all the hungry tourists
Outside Katz’s formed a line.
For deli, we’re not purists
So the other place seemed fine.

The food was mediocre;
The service merely...Read More

Dare Risk, Travel to the Moon
It seemed that I dared
To climb the stairs toward heaven
Effort over a millennium, or was it timeless? 
A spiritual goal pursued in this endless universe
No pure maidens in the reception line
Just me, newly arrived, still in motion
Without direction, decisiveness, where...Read More

Deep Questions, Shallow Answers
There will always be tyrants;
There will always be violence.
Whether or not
There will always be heroes - 
Everyday is decided
Virtue is nothing
But a word if you hide it.
Righteousness goes unrecognized 
Even if you're standing beside it
When superseded by silence.
All of your...Read More

But I looked for a motorbike outside the church, 
To reinforce his black biker jacket and sociology, 
Which superseded church goers and that bunch.

The Old Hand Saw

...for Ted Kooser

It belonged to my dad. 
More antique than useful it lay 
in my tool box begging to be used.
Soaped and sharpened so many times 
before use, its blade was now dull and lifeless.

Peace and War
Either struggle at talking now, 
Or struggle in armament later, 
Deal with the battle inside yourselves,
Or get others to face your fiery hater.

Considering and exchanging views,
Concerning yourself with the other way, 
Appreciating what...Read More

Sparky, We're Going Under
Happy 5th birthday have you accepted rape into your life,
It's a patriarchal practice built from sadism and male strife,
A hedonistic ritual to keep us all under control,
The birthright of masculinity bestowed upon all men young and old,
They'll decry our institution...Read More
