And one day, she hoped…
these words of love,
would weave through the souls of strangers,
binding them together,
with threads of compassion,
spreading peace.

sometimes i believe

all that holds me

together

is the crazy glue

i feel every crack

every fault line

                stressed

every chip on my

shoulder            a chunk 

sweat pours down my

back

like liquid          fear

i can smell

rain

coming to pound me

into           dust

wash away my

pain

at least I hope it will

it must

Pennies on My Eyes

Tags

, ,

I’m an unfertilized egg
accidentally hatched,
pecking in the dirt
with my chickenscratch.
Fox in the henhouse
looking for some dinner.
Looks at me like a
Three Piece and a biscuit.
I’m not trying to be in her.
Keeping my eyes peeled
for the Snake in the grass,
forked up tongue always
flickering fast,
who pretends to warn me
of the Hawk in the skies,
but my trust is always
paid back with
pennies on my eyes.

    If Refugees Were Whales

    ​Maybe if they had
    beached themselves,
    or gotten lost
    in the doldrums
    between starvation
    and war,
    or wound up anywhere
    beside the ocean
    instead of in it.
    So much driftwood
    washed up on a
    Libyan shore.
    Abandoned by purveyors
    of misery,
    Human Traffickers
    galore.
    Devoid of humanity
    ruthless and cruel,
    Summa cum laude graduates
    of the
    kill or be killed school.
    Maybe if refugees
    had oil,
    rare metals,
    or even chocolate,
    maybe then we’d notice,
    or at least pretend
    to give a shit.
