Premium Member If You Step On a Crack
If you step on a crack 
You will break your mother’s back.
When she made us mad.
It’s all we had.

We would spend hours
Jumping on the sidewalk crack.
It never worked.
So terribly glad.

Do not walk under a ladder
Or break a mirror.
You will have...Read More

Premium Member Innocent Children are the Largest Victims
No blood would ooze out if cut by blade
No flesh below to sink, nothing inside shakes
Bare bones protruding here and there like spikes
Vacant look in the eyes
Yet the body breathes and survives;
Skeleton like children of Somalia, one of the African...Read More

Uncle Ed came to live with us when he was in his seventies
He felt old, weird, and he had white hair on his face
It sprouted out of his nose

He was our distant uncle, a blue baby who should not have...Read More

Padraig's Fire

Hurry!
Hurry through the night
With windstorms
Breathing at your back
Before the shadows know
You pass their doors -
Their darkened, dusty, empty hearths -
Before the dawn ascends -
Before the pipes awaken;
Carry close
Precious flint and tinder
Next to the wildly beating
Warmth -
Beneath your flowing cape.

Hurry!

They're trying to tell you
They’re trying to tell you
That your superstitions and machinations 
Are an exhausting game of whack-a-mole
They’re trying to tell you 
You’ve assumed a version of them
That society told you existed and you never questioned
They’re trying to tell you

The World Will Simply Shrug
The universe will simply shrug


Bullets fly, wars be waged
People die, ‘pon worlds stage

Hopes and ambitions
Faith and traditions

Cold hard facts
And simple superstitions

All no more than
Wishful visions

All the world’s fine institutions
Despite man’s resolutions

In the end will be
Doomed to fade away

And the universe…...Read More

Darkness
Full white
moon. 
Star ceiling.
Fire roaring.
Flames soaring.
Sparks flying
high,
high into
the night.
Chanting 
loudly. 
Baleful voices
sounds
echoing off
the stones.
Drums beating.
Faces painted.
Wild dance,
arms raised.
Looking
 on high.
Superstitions
born.
Religions 
genesis.
Wild night, 
sacrifice delivered.
Appeasements,
prayers made.
Moonlight,
shadows thrown,
seeing ghosts.
Ghosts dancing,
flying
in the glades.
The world, 
a frightful
place 
so very
long ago.

Society Tailor
Society is a wonderful tailor,
It stitches my free wings with strings of thoughtless notions,
It stitches my parents' broad minds close with a prejudiced needle,
And makes a wonderful dress covered with gems of obnoxious superstitions.

Folding the Flag

Amend them errant, wavy ways,
