Our next Fund Drive starts, uh now, so send what you got! You’re the ones keeping us on the air, … Continue reading

HAT’S OFF

HAT’S OFF

I’m writing a lot of dark stuff. Well I’m writing outtakes of dark stuff which is working for me on so many levels. Poetry, stories, diatribes, which I’m not sharing in my usual way. It’s a matter of getting out what’s deeper inside the heart and mind, which is easier said than done. And a lot … Continue reading

MERCY

MERCY

affirmations constellations dreams and notions of a world where loving kindness lacking blindness seas and oceans thoughts unfurled of peace and mercy seize this day where friend and foe both stand and say we’re not divided not shortsighted none derided come what may.

LOVER NOT A FIGHTER

Nowadays there’s so much tension Cause enough it’s fair to mention What’s so wrong with burning brighter? Be a lover not a fighter Why not kiss instead of diss? Why not smooch instead of hooch?

Ice storm and robins That’s unexpected They’re making a ruckus Well for robins that is As frozen rain hastily drops I forgot to listen to the weather They don’t make a sound Well not with their throats But they lift and they swoop Their wings flutter about Much more than in May How they will … Continue reading

PEACEFUL WORLD

Bellicose and Grandiose It’s so morose I’m comatose So adios Don’t get too close It’s overdose Can’t diagnose The history Debauchery Such blistery Affrontery It’s blustery Buffoonery More drollery And lunacy Please be kind And speak your mind Be so inclined And you may find Some clarity The chance to see A peaceful world For … Continue reading

TODAY IS ABOUT TODAY

TODAY IS ABOUT TODAY

It’s early Thursday morning, which is cool. What’s funny is I’ve been up for about an hour, and in that hour, floating around in the back of my mind was the thought it was Wednesday. I got excited when I realized it was Thursday. But why? Why do I constantly feel the need to hurry … Continue reading

VERGE OF RADICAL

VERGE OF RADICAL

NOT NIHILISTIC

NOT NIHILISTIC

It’s a common thing around here. Family cemeteries in people’s backyards or somewhere on their land. On land that’s been passed down from generation to generation. There are currently laws on the books protecting this sacred land from development. Would you want to build a house here? Word on the street is when folks try … Continue reading

We’re under the same sky We breathe the same air For me you’ve a distaste For you I don’t care We couldn’t be any different No doubt this is true There’s a chasm between us And look what we do Place blame on each other While people it seems Can’t come to agreement Won’t dream the same dreams Of a world … Continue reading
