Premium Member Children Of A Lesser God

Oh, children of a lesser god-
defects can steal your life away,
as you are judged by how you look,
or if you hear or speak, or see;
if arms and legs fail miserably-
or minds perform imperfectly.

We fail to see the worth inside
which often...Read More

Premium Member FAREWELL TO TEPPO GREN
This tribute’s to dear Teppo Gren
He supported both women and men
His account’s now deleted
As his friends were mistreated
He will not post on PS again’

To newbies, kind words he was gifting
His comments sincere and uplifting
Now Teppo has left
I feel quite bereft

Psycho Analysis
Psycho Analysis
by Michael R. Burch

This is not what I need...
ANALysis,
paralysis,
as though I were a seed
to be planted,
supported
with a stick and some string
until I emerge.
Your words
are not water. I need something
more nourishing,
like cherishing,
something essential, like love
so that when I climb

Premium Member Contagious Health
Are you feeling sad,
wanting your faith community,
democratic society,
to live more...
live more deeply...
live more widely...

Faithful to wealthy health, yes,
and I wonder if you are angry,
frustrated,
impatient,
wishing for more enthusiastic RESPECT,
more Aretha Franklin listened to
and more explicitly understood,
appreciated?

On my worst days,
anger.
Most days and...Read More

Premium Member EQUALITY







It took 
a deadly virus
to disprove all those theories 
that
supported the idea of superiority 
of
race, color and sex
and
prove, beyond any doubt,
the 
reality of equality, not only 
in
the eyes of our Lord 
but
in Man's eyes as well!

Within sleepy sheep folds
of retributive divine justice
postponed til kingdom comes
and diva queens go 
to hell where we sinfully belong
like all unfaithful Negroes
refusing to shuck and jive
custody of 20/20 eyes
and to disconnect bicameral ears,

Discovering within these quiet unexamined folds
remains an uncreative...Read More

I miss you, Landon
I miss you, won't see

You always make me

been my favorite cousin,
nothings the same without you.

These are post-revolutionary gay '20s,

Thinking

I don't imagine
we could ever have an environmentally healthy just war.

We need only look at torn and poisoned outcomes
from past ballistic international encounters
to see "healthy war"
as yet another oxymoron

CLADESTINE
THE CHIMNEY
The once fine air, refreshens with dust
Between the village horizon and crest
Since the sailing of a death chemical chimney.

Young green plants seedlings growing on slope
Are left to sip these  carcinogenic dusts, sapling
And entwined between vague horror.

Confident :: Tri-Coupled Sestet

Tomorrow, is Test Day;
An unknown fear made way
Went to pray to HIM seeking personal favor.
Asked HIM to bless courage
to get through, must flourish
in the tough competitive test, to be saviour.

Felt assured to get HIS
grace, fear cleared as it is.
Believed everything...Read More
