national wear a keffiyeh day…

freedom fighter

the brown bag prophet
stopped me
and asked
where’s
your
keffiyeh
taken aback
i said
well
i don’t
have one
he said
why not
well
why would i
was
my reply
he said
today’s
national keffyeh day
and
everyone
who gives
a damn
about freedom
is supposed
to
wear one
well
or
a sombrero
or
any
outward symbol
of
resistance
to the racist policies
of
the new
social bullies
in
washington
it’s
a more
polite way
of
raising
your
middle
finger

iron deficiency…

iron-deficiency

there will be
no
apologies
nor
words
of
condolence
to
those
left
abandoned
and
dying
beneath
political banners
of
red
white
and blue
banners
littering
the ports
and
borders
of
an anemic nation
a nation
so
easily fatigued
when
exercising
freedom
always
seeming
to have
a shortness
of
moral breath
and
an unusually
rapid
heart beat
when exposed
to
the truth
preferring
a placebo
rather than
a dose
of
reality

hate’s history repeats…

hates-history-repeats

racial purity
a repeated theme of hate
now in my own land

now in my own land
i hear calls for legalized
racial purity

racial purity
national safety it’s mask
now in my own land

random pages found on the floor #11…

random-pages-found-on-the-floor

a good day to die
the warmth of god’s sun is here
warriors gather round
to protect their sacred graves
once again a trail of tears

black history…

black-history

deep festering hold
where lie’s rats eat freedom’s eyes
recurring nightmare

state funeral…

state-funeral

it appears
that
the autopsy
was conducted
just prior
to death
numerous
writers
documented
failing health
bleeding
from
self-inflicted wounds
delusional
claims
of fame
rabid dog attacks
on
any
questioning sound
but then
the village
responded
the autopsy
was
quite
appropriate

drumpf’s gardens…

while walking dried blood
splattered against a white wall
blooms of hate and fear
