i had but one dream
so simple it had no form
nothing to define
nor place on your bucket list
human dignity that’s all

quick draw contest…

aunt bea
pulled out an old photo
of me
all decked out
as a cowboy
complete with
a genuine cowhide
double holster
holding white
simulated
pearl
handled pistols
she
said
as i recall
you
and
your cousins
were into
tv westerns
gun smoke
hopalong cassidy
and
such
you boys
would stand out front
practicing your quick draws
producing enough noise
from those cap guns
to send
the neighborhood dogs
into a barking
frenzy
back then
you didn’t
consider
the real consequences
of carrying out
a quick draw contest
with others
how death
was the real winner
seems like
the new administration
hasn’t quite
realized
that yet
or
doesn’t care

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

making america great again…

witch doctor

stare into the sun
your retina will be burned
foolish votes burn more

your ticket’s been punched…

your-tickets-been-punched

we vainly
deal
with our fears
as if
they will respond
to
the words
of
others
if
expressed
in
an office
or
meditation center
delegating
our
decisions
to
robed
and
un-robed
messiahs
of
our own personal sorrows
messiahs
conveniently
found
on webpages
which
apparently
was
prophesied
by
liberals
and
conservatives
in
a national poll
thus
making the transition
to
a
dulcet
intellectual peasant
validated
