i accept…

the soundless
nights
of
death
where
i cannot
hear
your voice
as
well as
the
darkness
that
shrouds
my memory
of
you
where
not
even
the faintest
glow
of
life’s light
can pierce
the dark dreams
of
yesterday
these things
one
must accept
but
i cannot accept
that
you
have accepted
lies
over
truth

creation…

his tomorrow’s
were out of focus
as
were
his yesterday’s
and
as for
today
it was hard
to say
since
the steady sound
of
rain
drowned out
the sounds
of
his thoughts
but
his eyes seemed
focused
as he stood
staring
at
a child
wading
bare foot
in cold puddles
pursuing
a makeshift-ship
one small
discarded
plastic bottle
manned by a crew
of
captured black ants
they didn’t seem
to be enjoying
the
adventure
as
he watched
the child’s creation
he wondered
if
god
saw us all
as
captured ants
drifting along
in
a plastic bottle

dinner invitation…

there’s an extra space
at our dinner table now
so when you’re in town
senator seeking handouts
stop in parkland florida

the harvest…

simple
farming principles
regardless
of
species
or
location
weeding
is an important
control method
to
facilitate
the course
of
growth
and
to keep
the yields high
allowing
for
increased profits
for
corporate
and
corporate sponsored
individuals
thus
economic advantage
requires
that
social sacrifice
be made
the
public
must
recall
market shares
are
proportional
and
a strong presence
in
government agencies
can
negate
events
like
sandy hook
las vegas
and
florida

death by denial…

when
a weapon
is pressed tight
against
your skull
and
you smell
the cold metal
tell me
once again
guns don’t kill
people
do
when
it
is your
innocent child
lying in a grave
whose body
has been
pierced
like
christ
tell
me
once again
those
paid for
words
guns
don’t kill
people
do
for
when
you lie
upon death’s bed
your
blood money
flowing
from
a gunshot wound
i shall
repeat
to you
guns
don’t kill
people
do
but
shall
also ask
would you
like
some tea
or
perhaps
a prayer

​devolution…

man’s
barbaric soul
is tightly shrouded
in the black cloth
of
superiority
claiming to be
ordained
as
the earth’s keeper
all
that has been
kept
are
animalistic behaviors
a willingness
to kill
his own kind
for
territory
and
like any beast
routing out
his enemies’ children
leaving them
dead
on the battlefield
so his
young
may prosper
a limited
form
of humanity
since
even his own young
will be sacrificed
for
the protection
of
the territory
the scent
of
death
is everywhere
it
permeates
the cloth
of
the flag
power
always portrayed
as
the color red
the color
of
shed blood
