Harder to write and to read than prose, but poetry
expresses far more elegantly, passionately
and emotively than one may ever, hopefully,
aspire to … prosaically.

A form of written…

Teach us to be gentle instead of always anger,
Teach us to be humbled and learn not to be bitter,

Teach us to care and value sanctity of marriage,
Teach us to carry each other to the days of old age.
Teach us to decide and think as one body,
Teach us to treat the marriage as holy.

Teach us to raise our…

Fluidity, a poem

Fluidity, a poem

Her dress–the color of pool water, printed with bright tropical flowers,

her earrings, falling beads like particles of sunlight on water, her hair, silvery-blonde, cascading down one side of her face like water, or frozen water… she is cool, refreshing, drinkable.

Why I Hate You

You know why I hate you?  You’re a weak vine, needing to be propped up, needing more comfort than a baby.  You imagine bugs, crawling up the walls, down your hair.  Their wings whir in the night like soft sobs.

I hate you because you’re ugly — a slob, a slut, a sucker.  Because you saw your mother passed out on the carpet in front of the television, one too many times, but you…

president barack obama is being quoted out of context by the radical fringe right, and I’M SICK & FUCKING TIRED OF THIS SHIT

illustration president obama

the full text of president obama’s speech in which he advocates FOR democracy, not AGAINST it. a paragraph is being circulated, ENTIRELY OUT OF CONTEXT, to defame him. I WON’T STAND FOR THIS SHIT.

“And it was here in Europe, through centuries of struggle, through war and enlightenment, repression and revolution, that a particular set of ideals began to emerge, the belief that through conscience…
