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.”

and dyed into
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?
