notes on brisbane wall…

notes-on-brisbane-wall

each person on earth
strives to proclaim that their soul
was really once here

irreversible calls…

irreversible-calls

backdrop
sounds
nothing from nature
chants
of
football fans
flow
through
open windows
and
on
televisions
sounds
of gun fire
from
chicago
la
and
aleppo
assault the ears
with
this new year
minds
wonder
where
they should go
and
why
they should stay
eyes
closed
they
dream
memories fade into
imagined
silky textures
of
tomorrow
they fall
asleep
like
all
of
society

it’s only castles burning…

during
inauguration weekend
trump’s sons
are offering
access
to
the freshly-minted
counterfeit
president
in exchange
for
million-dollar donations
to
unnamed
charities
oh
and
exxonmobil chief
nominated
as
secretary of state
was
a one-time director
of
an offshore company
with
close
dealings
with
russia
while
in panama
top-drawer lawyers
move freely
between
high government posts
and
law firms
selling
secrecy-cloaked shell companies
mentioning shells
in east Aleppo
a 100,000 children
cannot
play,
sleep
or
attend school
but
can die
don’t let it
bring
you down
It’s
only castles burning

graven images…

no-graven-images

the
dead
are not buried
the rotting corpse
of
their ideas
moves
among us
you can
smell
the stench
of
their hatred
and
feel
their ignorance’s
foul breath
on the face
of lady liberty
these
are
azazel’s soldiers
holding
high
the black flag
of
oppression
those
who dare
to
speak
of
human rights
are
challenged
without reason
nor
any other purpose
than
for
personal gain
my words
are
not new
but
are mere
echos
of words
of
warning
heard
throughout
history
