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”.

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

Don’t be manipulated
by the media – fear sells commercials
Stand by your own
you have lied & been lied to before –
Remember when someone
you love asked if they look
fat in the jeans they are wearing?

you know who you are
you know - what to do
we both know the difference
a commencement – a debut
a need to share
for one who cares
and lives the dare
i am there.
a mute trepidation........
hangs on the wire
a beginning to end
what will transpire?
“Out there things can happen, and frequently do,
To people as brainy and footsy as you.
And when things start to happen, don't worry, don't stew.
Just go right along, you'll start happening too!”
