Premium Member Anger Management
I'm rereading Marshall Rosenberg's chapter on Anger,
The big challenge for nonviolent communicators.

Marshall, a StraightWhiteMale psychotherapist,
repeatedly refers to feeling disappointment
escalating into Loser-shamed anger
sometimes further escalating into defensive
red-hot blaming Rage
risking lose/lose nihilistic outcomes for oneself
and anyone in our self-righteous
fundamentally egocentric paths.

O dark curtain that raises or lowers 
As diseased tides dictate.

Why bring you ever fresh soured winds to my door?

For Time itself, as the great healer it is, in passing
Softly whispers within fevered breezes
‘Rest, rest, it will pass, as all...Read More

Hidden Hand Inurned
Snake oily palms
got a-plenty 
under the table plans

Synthetic sly reptilian smile
bewitching many
Picking pockets with a hidden hand

Real filthy lucre fingernails 
have the zircon gluttonous glow
that enticingly Endora sells 

Dirty laundered money
boa clutches 
that unclean epidermal soul

Those cobra soundbytes ain’t adder...Read More

Morning Narrative

They claim to bring you “News that Matters”
but broadcast news only reports what sells.
Generally a negative story teaser then six straight car,

Everyone feels the crimson hatred that we all burn this world with
Just as the icy blues that we all shatter the...Read More

a better place if all and sundry 
had such a heart!

Premium Member Whatever Does That Mean
They say that I'm prolific
Whatever does that mean?
It makes me sound like a rabbit
Bob-bobbing in a pretty scene.

It makes me feel terrific
And not an old has-been,
When I find a word I grab it
Towards rhyming I often lean.

And here I go...Read More

Day 38

Pugnaciousness set aside, 
Phantasmal was the anticipation, 
Possessing each moment
Some shutter fell over him
He knew, at least, that he had me 
He knew that I cared enough
Ours together, in his hands and mine,
I gave him the means to perceive

3 nails, and a cross.
Jesus' victory was no loss.
He had sacrificed himself and paid the cost.
For the wretched and the lost.
Thorns pierced the crown of His head. (Matthew 27:29)

Whipped with ropes of glass...Read More

An overcast sky blotches a caring Sun's sympathetic warmness, diffusing confidences of a blissful morn, 
Consolidates a desolate soul, filled only in despair of inflated apprehensive pupils, 
Notwithstanding, it is sensed with comprehensive estrangement, dwarfs enthusiastic esteem,
Downcast eyes overshadow the...Read More
