critical white race theory…

a flag's silhouettes of death...

so
many stories
told
that
we hold to be true
but
most
are not
just
creations
for
justification
blackout paint
to conceal
the blood graffitied
highway walls
of
history
cover-ups
for
fear
that the truth
could
indeed
set us
free
or
at least
make
them
see
their
shame

 

 

timeliness is next to godliness…

timeliness is next to godliness

as usual
he
was late
for
his ascension
that
had been
scheduled
for four
but
because
of
a very
profitable
business deal
he
was late
expressing
his sincere
apologies
to
the attending
angel
who
told him
in
a somewhat
cheerful voice
to
step onto
the escalator
preoccupied
with pride
he
failed
to notice
its
downward
direction

at heaven’s gate…

at heaven's gate

the old monk
bent
from years
of
life’s trials
reached heaven
entering its gates
he passed a note
to
the gatekeeper
which read
is michael here
of course
was the reply
to which
the gatekeeper added
since
you’ve reached heaven
there’s no need
for
your vow of silence
so
feel free
to speak
and
ask
any of life’s deepest questions
with
a feeble voice
not used
in almost a century
the old monk
inquired
do you think he’ll teach me
that
moonwalk thing

return to sender…

return to sender

i’ve posted
a
letter
to
death
didn’t bother
with
a
return
address
seemed
rather
pointless
since death
is
omnipresent
actually
the whole
letter
was
pointless
for
the same reason
but
it made me
feel good
to
address death
on
such a personal level
you know
like
when we say
we’re all in this together
or
i don’t see colors
those
ultimate
social platitudes
basted
onto
the carcass
of
human bondage
words
offered
when
folks
are
uncomfortable
or
are
uttered
because
the speaker
is
just plain stupid
about
the history
of
mankind
unable
to
see
that
even though
we
can
feed everyone
and
heal
most
there’s
a reluctance
to
do so
since
there’s
no
profit
in
morality
that’s
why
death
hasn’t bothered
to
write
back
