Never Ever

when a politician uses the phrase
“never ever”
pick up your television, radio, phone or
PC (however it is that you are listening to the
person blab) &
hurl it out the nearest window.

if you are lucky (and have good aim) ,
it will come crashing down upon a sidewalk
or a street &
the person babbling lies
will stop doing so.

Sloppy Seconds

and the whole time that the big family meal had been going on
sister went to pass the bowl of Manwich, but brother, being the
vegetarian now (having changed so since leaving the nest to college)
shook his head slowly with food in his mouth (salted baby Yukon Golds) & sister scanned the rest of the table when her cousin (the attractive lawyer who moved to LA) threw up her hand remarking that she'd like some, sister who never liked her 'hot' cousin who never passed up a moment to rub her success in the face of everyone, replied 'oh, i didn't know that you did sloppy seconds-'

Colores Secundarios: Naranja

wretched lipstick choice, jack-o-lanterns,

fat tabby cats (with stripes) , monarch

butterflies, chester cheetah (with spots) ,

his head in orange sewage, orange

Defiance Is Pure

the mere act of saying “no”
when others put a gun to your head &
want nothing more than your unmitigated
acquiescence,
is a moment that builds up the skeleton inside
it stands up against all odds
it does not waver in the harshest of winds
it does not convert itself to any tame rendition
it is focused & deliberate
it is as steadfast as a tightened fist in the air of
militant, violent, ceaseless
oppression &
like a concrete statue that is still left standing
after the hurricane has torn up all that encircles it
like taking a carrot grater to an unfortunate
carrot,
you stand defiant
you stand beautiful
you stand
honest.

Amy, 27

a woman whose pain never left her eyes &
whose talent never left her very being
who despite all the scumbag newspapers & television vultures who
followed her around on a daily basis
always taking pictures
always informing the public about her life
as if any of us had the right to be bothering her at all-
amy,
whose voice struck electric pangs through the spine
when her frank reality
floated in tandem with an unmatched melody &
captivating presence-
amy, one hopes that now
peace will replace all of the torment that life had
brought with it &
this writer is grateful that you took the time to share it
with us all when you
could.

Silence Him

when julian gets to sweden
they will
SILENCE HIM
they will lock him up,
throw away the key &
SILENCE HIM,
they'll keep the trial under wraps
away from the public eye &
they will
SILENCE HIM,
under strict orders from daddy
'democracy, '
the empire itself,
they will
SILENCE HIM &
the conditions he'll undergo
being muted in solitary will
all be part of the program to
SILENCE HIM,
cause' that

Quick Submission (relinquishing The Will & Gulping Down The Kool-aid)

have you a cough?
are you ill?
is something just not working the way it should
under the hood?

“believe what we believe & all will be better”

have you seen a tragedy that you just can’t understand?
have you wondered why there is so much violence in the world?
have you wanted peace at any cost, just to make it right?

“believe what we believe & all will be better”

do you feel that those you love are at risk of danger?
do you feel that as part of a group you will be stronger than you were
alone?

“believe what we believe & all will be better”

are you exhausted?
