Dream Strange Dreams

Dream Strange Dreams ~~~~~ Patterns upon patterns upon patterns, All our world is full of shapes and lines. Some appear solid, but science says no. Some are shadows and reflections of us, Our world patterns cast upon everything. How to know, what is real, what is not? Is it a question, or is the question, […]

Man Makes the Clothes

Man Makes the Clothes ~~~~~ Since I was small, I have so often heard it said, clothes make the man, that it’s become clichéd. Dress for success, mantra many a parent chants. Only first impression, there’s no second chance. Wise words some whiz said, logical conclusion; words with great potential to generate confusion. When imitation […]

So Little Has Changed

So Little Has Changed ~~~~~ It is time to put people over politics, country over capitulation and world over wealth. ~~~~~  (I could write and post something like this every day. It makes me sad.) Today, it was a shooting in Girlroy, CA What are the numbers, does anybody know? Does anybody care how many […]

You Cannot Know

You Cannot Know ~~~~~   It is time to put people over politics, country over capitulation and world over wealth. ~~~~~ Another mass shooting in the United States. Whether on the battle field or living our daily lives, we are at war. Will this be the day you will die or I will die because […]

Ere We Fall

Ere We Fall ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Who knows what we’ve lost in the cause of war? Music, art, novels, plays, poems, films and more. Bach, DaVinci, Cassatt, Monet, fodder of kings, Shakespeare, Elliott, Beethoven all gone missing. Would we find saviors numbered with the […]

Euphemism: The Cynical Silent Killer

~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Boots on the ground come marching, marching Boots on the ground come marching one by one Boots on the ground have not one specified role At least that is the bill of goods we’ve been sold Boots on the ground come […]

On the Home Front

~~~~~ We brand ourselves, the land of the brave, home of the free So proud, as we ignore our own ignorance, hatred and, bigotry Decrying machine-gun maniacs, who murder on a bloody spree While we’re Earth’s premiere purveyor of advanced weaponry Righteous people who never sing the song of them, only of me It should […]

Songs of War ~ Songs of Peace

~~~~~ And will the savage songs of war never end, Replaced by simple, sweet songs of peace? How can we, forever, our loved-ones send, Knowing they will feed the slavering beast? Do we wonder why we never grow sane, When the best, the brightest are sent to die? Why choose blood, shed again and again? […]

That’s What I Think

~~~~~ God’s feet I imagine Would not fit In my backyard Nor in the town Where I live Being so large God must be clumsy Or, perhaps, allergic To us, to people Do god’s sneezes Bring storms Mayhap god trips Steps into the ocean Causing rough seas Floods and tsunamis Eating suns, novae Hot breath […]

Prufrock’s Lament

With the current news in the world, both economic and political, the aggression, bigotry, misogyny and xenophobia, it seemed time to revisit Prufrock, with thanks to T.S. Eliot for his original brilliance. War is Peace; Freedom is Slavery; Ignorance is Strength; Trumpery is Reality ~~~~~ Let us slow then, you and I. When vile emissions […]
