rem sleep…

rem sleep...

dancing
on
the edge
of
a dream
that
place
where all things
are
possible
and
anything
can be
undone
decisions
poorly made
corrected
old
arguments
won
salty tears
dried
and
blown
into
nonexistence
one can
also
fulfill
suspended dreams
caress
lovers
never held
taste
the honey
of
lips
only seen
from
a distance
even
succeed
where failure
prevailed
oh
this is a marvelous place
these
moments
between
night
and
dawn
resting
on
a new day’s
pillow

 

 

the promise of eternity…

the promise of eternity

please stay
in
your
designated line
divine blessings
on
earth
are allotted
according to
your position
in line
but
rest assured
that
you’ll
be
given
a fair share
of
life’s bounty
upon
your souls passing
into
the chimeric promised land
a sure guarantee
from those
who
oppressed you
during
your time
on
earth

nobody wanted to get depressed…

nobody wanted to get depressed...

stopped watching the news
stopped counting deaths from virus
and global warming
just getting back to normal
was man’s final delusion

 

 

nothing to write home about…

nothing to write home about

this path
of
freedom
is strewn
with
shards of hate
a path
not chosen
walking barefoot
into the night
pain
with
each step made
they say
i should be 
grateful
that i’m
permitted
to walk

global catering service…

global catering service

always believed
that
the world
i saw
would evolve
to
include me
but
ain’t nothing
changed
justice
is still sleeping
and
folks like me
are
more
than
welcomed
to
serve
but
not
eat
