Songstress, for Nadia Anjuman
by Michael R. Burch
for Nadia Anjuman
Within its starkwhite ribcage, how the heart
must flutter wildly, O, and always sing
against the pressing darkness: all it knows
until at last it feels the numbing sting
of death. Then life's brief vision swiftly passes,

On my two year anniversary 
a new verse too read
canny words set free
doctor said you need

Apples nutritious 
And grapes with pips in
Cables that trip us
And drapes for peeping

At sights kept hidden
Affairs and lovers
Secret keeping
Shared with others

The cotton runs high in the Taliban sky
Resistance continues, into the south.
I watch nightly news with a heavy sigh 
Not letting judgments escape from my mouth. 

I see the pain that rues life for the same 
For their families each suffer loss too.

Veiled Terrorism
Untold  brutal tales of wives battered. 
World all over, violated wedding vows, 
in merciless kicks, her screams drowse. 
Black-eyed Cindrella, dreams all shattered. 

Injured love hurts... in horrific nightmare. 
Red petals pumelled in dark blood clots.

Black and white Advent calendar

Haven't you heard the red oleander
Dropping its last leaf for December sheen

Blood spills into the streets of Kashmir

everlasting war
Everlasting war
The new normal in the twentieth century is war
it has continued without a break a perpetual machine
of mass killing, someone somewhere must see
war as a business in which every country has a bloody hand.

Does it make you sad too that Republicans say

Premium Member Taliban Parents
How wrong could I be
were I to assume
most Taliban leaders
in Afghanistan
have aging parents?

Especially mothers,
as it is not specifically healthy
to be a male in such a violent
nutritionally-barren place

And Taliban parents
might also have kids hungry and thirsty
and afraid to give us grandkids,

Milk and Hate
In the land of milk honey and hate
The Evangelicals sealed it fate

Demanding its citizens religiosity
Inherent of its edits misogyny

Treated as a form of contraband

The Oligarch fomented  dissent 
While the peasants paid their rent

The Soldiers War
THE SOLDIERS’ WAR (A tribute)

In the distance the sound of a gun.

Heading gingerly towards some safe place.

Far from home, in the blistering heat

They head towards camp and a...Read More

Fly kite
Cut hands
Rob lands

Children’s scars
Biblical fears
Commandments near
Steal not anothers' tear

Escape the evil hands
No music, no happiness
Dance your way to the Promised Land
Leave the blood and mountains of sand

The old ones die
So that the young may fly
In a new land
Without Taliban

Some Lives Matter More Than Others
Black lives matter
yes they do
Blue lives matter too.

Green and red and yellow lives
I’m all on board - no lie.
But when you say that “ALL lives matter”
you’ve lost me, and here’s why:

I seriously doubt that you
agree that every life

Surfs Up
Surfs Up
In distant lands
From Kuwait Bay
To Afghanistan
To Pakistan
We all high five 
As we hang ten
The ladies there 
With burkas on
Will grab their boards
And surf along
The Taliban 
With weapons raised
Are now into
The surfing craze
The Saudi king
Is wondering
With his wives
What they're missing
