We Will Bequeath

People Over Politics, Country Over Capitulation, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ When, one day, we become but voices, Remembered but by voices from the past, We’ll have moved onward and outward. Might we then finally understand at last? Must we waft through the sky, as a cloud, Stand silently like trees, recording days, In seasons’ silent, […]

Your Turn or Mine

People Over Politics, Country Over Capitulation, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ To watch the leaves floating down. Something I remember from youth. In the Midwest and the East, where Season change in ways you notice. Unlike the subtle thinning of veils Between this one and the next one. Ultimately comes to the same end. Like the […]

Song and Sorrow

People Over Politics, Country Over Capitulation, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ My story is one of song and sorrow That’s been told long years before. Should it then be shared tomorrow? Our many futures as others kissing, Use my lips, caress with my hands? I’m the newly born, shocked awake In the cold, sterile light of […]

Then or Now

People Over Politics, Country Over Capitulation, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ When did the presage of prophets and sages Then bid the message of profits not wages?

Except

People Over Politics, Country Over Capitulation, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ The days of October count down And the spirits draw near the veil. Even while they are all around us.

Feels like I’m in a race riot, just got hosed. Most people that I see are wearing masks. Those without scare […]

They Have Survived

People Over Politics, Country Over Capitulation, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Lotus grows from dirty, muddy water, So beauty arises from something unclean. It self-propagates along the eight-fold path. But what does it mean for the world today? It’s lovely and may mean many things we need. Love and longing within the seed, is the son, […]

What Do You Mean?

People Over Politics, Country Over Capitulation, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ What are the things, the meanings we believe Only belong to us, as if only our tribe matters? If we can only understand that there is nothing Anywhere that means what we think it means It might be possible to start over, begin  again. Hopefully […]

Walking Mysteries

People Over Politics, Country Over Capitulation, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ We are all walking mysteries. Those of us who wear masks And those of us who do not. We wear masks to protect others And ourselves, if possible. I can only guess those who don’t, Certainly don’t care about me. In fact, I think they […]

Yet, Here We Are

People Over Politics, Country Over Capitulation, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Over 300,000 years of homo sapiens, us, Stumbling around, till we got everywhere. Yet, only 5,000 years of the written word, So I can struggle to try to speak with you. At first we wrote on stone, clay, tree bark, Everything we could find or […]
