Double Sided
Emotions numb,   I've come undone   a long time ago.
In a trance,  this is a second chance   it's all I know
I've got to make it this time,  keep my feelings blind

Students conservative of body-health care
invest as necessary
in bowing and submitting subservience
to orthodox heterosexual vampirate mentors,
fundamentalist badnews evangelicals
sucking on pre-meditated rapture
of Heavenly bloodsucking EarthNatures.

To meet conservative RightWing

of monoculturing monopolistic

Premium Member Defining Trumpism
Let's talk today about Trumpism.

If this is a new word,
how is it different and the same as
Fascism?

Who is a Trumpian
more than a Republican?
Or do these two labels
show the same angry face
about a Crippled America
to you?

I see U.S. Trumpians
more likely to...Read More

Premium Member Thomas Jefferson
It interests me to peer past the drafting
and rewriting shoulder
of Thomas Jefferson,
unhappy slave-owner,
and John Adams,
with domestic slave-owner nuisance issues,
and other principle writing minds 
of original democratic declaration and constitution shaping times,
as they listened to their own ecopolitically experienced histories,
some with...Read More

Addictive The Butterfly
Addictive The Butterfly

Stains and needles, an addiction shown,
Eternal my pain, this addiction grown.

In my blood, into this, and my veins,
I'll spill it all, the admirable stains,
See my hate, see my emotions, see my pain,
You may learn, but I won't gain.

I...Read More

Memories
My memories... They glisten like dew on brilliant blades of grass bathed in the morning sun...Each of them twinkling from that place where memories dwell... 
Some are faded from the weather and the heavy, suppressive time... 
Some hide in the...Read More

Premium Member Decomposing Love
Can you truly love a rock,
you've never directly seen or touched,
or some other relatively inanimate object,
like ego-centrism,
or a steel wall?

If so, then how is your love
different from a more unilateral "appreciate you"?

If not, then what is different between your "love"
and...Read More

Premium Member Miracle of Hypocrisy
I was listening to Cornell West,
who described our catastrophic tolerance of disvalues for others,
situations we would never tolerate for ourselves,
disvalues like homelessness and hunger,
but also like random violence, 
abuse and neglect,
lack of caring,
as a "conspiracy" of a dominating, oppressive, and...Read More

Oh' Dear Mother
Look upon her blackness 
And be filled with delight 
Her blackness
A beacon among the insipid faces 
around her
Proudly she walks
Proudly she sways 
with unsurpassed conviction 
A sensuous black lily
Swaying in the wind
The daughter of Africa 
Within her soft belly 
Sleeps...Read More

sweet sweet disconnect
when
scientology has 
deemed you an
enemy for being
antisocial, for 
being a POTENTIAL

A Thousand Words
Tried to take a picture, but the world wouldn’t sit still
and I don’t have the breath for a thousand words.
Fantasizing what I have to say, knowing I never will -
subordinate to suppressive hands like a caged bird.

I don’t have the...Read More

Stormy Clouds
Shapes of cotton wool clinging to each other
Shutting out the sun with its white and grey cover
The air becomes thick as clouds start to darken for rain
Thunder rumbles faintly at first the flash, then thunder again

Before the storm arrives the...Read More

A dark place
These dark streets, filled with shades
What little light enters soon fades
Cool and damp like the deepest cave
So musty it is like an earthy grave

The air is suppressive to one and all
Filled by songs designed to enthral
Pulling in all those who...Read More
