Blame whoever you want.
He who calls the shot –
Should own the repercussions
What happened to being accountable?
What happened to telling the truth?
What happened to a sense of dignity?
If any of us pulled any of these antics in our work places, board rooms, social forums– we’d be terminated. Wallow in it – you become “it”.

No one is listening
our kids are being murdered in their classrooms
witnessed by the innocent and precious.
politicians are lining their pockets-
they're chunking the change for porn stars
and mistresses while
parents are ordering tiny coffins.
feeding the masses rhetoric
with those huge spoons
they're buying it
digesting, sleeping with it.
parents with faces in their phones
do they even know who their kids are?
pack a pistol into the lunchkit
tucked between the cut up apple
and the snickers bar
they can't find their kids
let alone their shotguns and handguns.
When you try to request gun control
the rednecks start screaming about the second amendment
into the take-out speaker
if they listen
oh my god - it might be something they agree with
"give me a side of ammo and sample of compassion"
so they shout louder and louder and louder
kiss you sweetly on the lips, good-bye...
and walk quietly
out the door
cloaked in an AR-15
because they need protection -
On May 18, 2018, 8 of my neighbor's children
were gunned down with 2 of their teachers
at Santa Fe High School, Santa Fe, Texas.
Please register to VOTE.
Change is necessary to stop the mass murder
of our most precious and innocent.
No child should be worried about being killed
in their schools.

Passing judgement on the NFL conveys prejudice to the message.

an acolyte torch striking fire and brimstone
a modern day Arrian.
a mystery of many dimensions…..
a kaleidoscope with ever changing brilliant views
validating infinity and who god or “od” is.
shocking honesty and quick to correct!
sharing differences with the same timelines –
tip toeing around the gardenias
so they can hear the Max Richter’s Vivaldi
“I think it’s strange you never knew”
plays in my head because you put it there
a man without a current face
but one in my head
loyal – true
a smokestack over the monongahela
high at the top of the steps
intense descriptions to hold close
to save & scatter upward for superior suspension
I “get” you
always an astonishment
which may be wrapped in crinkled newspaper
but oh what wonders
the neighbor is
stealing service benefits
a lawyer no
married to an adolescent
still thinks she’s cute
a yard full of paper plate flowers
and dollar store treasures
cries for her meemaw
vaporized by that passing train
“First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak out for me.”

without knowledge of
the transformed difference......
not the what
but the who -
and I don’t
or the reasons
but i will
if an answer
