No Substance

No Substance

“Average working people need more fresh starts. Big corporations, banks, and Donald Trump need fewer.” – Robert Reich   No Substance The brain fires and seizes as the stimulation saturates every inhibition that is inconsequential. Discussions become debilitating – rendering you a child. Solutions guaranteed to separate. No substance where substance is needed. Robbing the hood instead of embracing Robin Hood. Fully intoxicated, under the influence, out of control to connect to your peers. Treat the elite more elite. Treat the poor poorer. Don’t care about Offending the Noetics and every other American. Lie to and Denigrate everyone That can Reasonably call themselves a person. Unfairly Mocking the Physically unable In a way that Shames one of the greatest Societies is Horrifically Insensitive To any human being. We see through the bloodshot eyes, the dripping nose, the unquenchable thirst. We see through...
The Shadow

The Shadow

“Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.” – Walt Whitman The Shadow The shadow raged over the city, creating dusk from dawn – night from day. The people fall to their knees, hands on top of their heads – chins on the ground. A chill came over their body as the dark air placed its frosty fingers on their cheeks. Cold Colder Coldest The shadow took its victims – one by one by one. The victims give in to the grip the shadow has over everything and everyone. The victims are left Cold Colder Coldest Frozen in time Frozen in life Frozen in...
Sun-Shower

Sun-Shower

“Tears of joy are like the summer rain drops pierced by sunbeams.” – Hosea Ballou Sun-Shower The sun smiled softly as it hugged the trees, wishing them a good night. The clouds blushed as their warm friend went to rest, preparing for the next day. They gathered together and cried and cried and cried, washing away their blush – highlighting their dark shadow. The thirsty grains of dirt raised their blades to catch each precious droplet that fell over the lids of the clouds’ eyes. Not ready to sleep for the night, the sun stared at the clouds’ tears and threw its hands in all directions, trying to play in the summer rain, one last time. The bright sun-shower invited its gay friend to come and play before the sun went to bed for the night. The sun-shower’s gay friend wore a bow and a dress of many colors. The gay friend’s face brightened and he fell to the ground in delight. The sun’s heart was filled with glee as it smiled with a sigh and a yawn. The sun finally rested – just in time to see the twinkle in the moon’s...
The Revolution of Revolutions

The Revolution of Revolutions

“Revolutions go not backward.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson The Revolution of Revolutions The small, meandering mind dreams in revolutions. The big, brilliant brain fears revolutions. The sun guides us all deciding for us what has already been decided. As it rises and falls we rise and we fall. A pattern that has been written by all revolutions, year after year, generation after generation. As we fly by the sun we fly through history. Each revolution faster than the last. History available at our fingertips is forgotten before it is remembered. A pattern that has been written by all revolutions, year after year, generation after generation. Our hope is that the small, meandering minds keep dreaming about revolutions while our fear of revolutions subsides and we rewrite the pattern – A pattern that has been written by all revolutions, year after year, generation after...
