Spring Fox

During the long white winter
he had not been seen, snuffed out 
like a flame. The scent of spring 
permeate the woods still holding
on to patches of stubborn snow. 
Somewhere within the thick of trees, 
he had taken refuge, enduring

The Tomb

Though building his own tomb,
he’s not insane.

His violinist friend’s body lies
within a glass box.
Violin tunes drizzle 
over memory.
This musical funeral, 
he finds charming.

A corpse and a carcass are alike
in the sand.
He wonders 
how long the world has to wait
before a...Read More

Crazy Horse's Naming Vision
Crazy Horse's Naming Vision
by Michael R. Burch

Earthbound,
and yet I now fly
through these clouds that are aimlessly drifting...
so high
that no sound
echoing by
below where the mountains are lifting
the sky
can be heard.

Like a bird,
but not meek,
like a hawk from a distance regarding its...Read More

Here on the dance floor ready to begin.
My turquoise sequined gown
just meets my shin.

I love the feathered boa that
encircles my neck.
I look as stunning and bright as 
moonlight on a ships deck.

And you, yes, you my Prince of Dance,

A tree carved into the brazen edges of light

Its fingers clasp an afternoon moon

I gaze up at the pellucid sky
a red tailed hawk is flying high;
it scans for prey, which soon may die ...
rabbits run for your life I want to cry!

I watch transfixed, I am spellbound
and watch it swoop, without a sound,...Read More

fuzzy, fur clad, bushytailed
Rapscallions
high wire walking, chattering
tormenting the cat
Rapscallions
peek-a-boo pink nosed
hopping, cotton tailed
Rapscallions
perched in thinning cover
blinking in the wind
Rapscallions
nature’s mischievous imps
playing hide and seek
before bed time.

I was walking down a wooded trail.
Sunlight filtered in through the trees.
I came across a weathered fence, post and rail.
The fence held a hive of noisy, busy bees.

I looked across an open field.
There stood a beautiful white-tailed deer.

Beneath a massive, old oak tree

Vast bugs and spiders in their webs

Soulless
Such a shame

The first strike

Was sprung

Out of shame

Tailed closely

By lust and jealousy

Paving new paths

To the beyond

The craving

For a bountiful harvest

Has now crafted ways

For eka to sow

the seeds of flesh

Alas with blood

now the food

for the soulless

He fell somewhere between 90 and 180
on an obtuse scale of the indigent
poverty had left him more than poor
his life an allegory of alleys
longing for the halcyon of hallways
an egregious attempt to mediate
a delicate delirium
to consecrate discarded bread
