Writing in English…

Writing in English is the most ingenious torture ever devised for sins committed in previous lives. The English reading public explains the reason why.

— James Joyce

Taught, Teach, Taunt

It’s tautological,

an impermanence.

Decrying style,

hatred, subscription,

rhetoric, irrefutable…

you obscure the facts,

your brain numb, but

saying that you don’t like

rap, is a racist, drug war

sentiment. Or, your

personal culture is

fucked. Just like

your opinion. Just

like mine.

Offended?

“The world is full of things that upset people. But most of us deal with it and move on and don’t try and burn the planet down. There is no right in the world not to be offended. That right simply doesn’t exist. In a free society, an open society, people have strong opinions, and these opinions very often clash. In a democracy, we have to learn to deal with this.”

–Salmon Rushdie

In Bloom…

•April 29, 2015 • Leave a Comment

The entire world,

should have May to rest.

To seek a higher meaning,

from the majesty of spring.

Its grace and beauty,

forgives you of your winter sins…

The rebirth and reform,

carry you to your next

bloom.

Don’t be a Blockhead

Spring Motor Oil

•April 18, 2015 • Leave a Comment

The sound of spring,

in a small town,

is the noise of

1,000 lawnmowers

working together,

in unison;

a united front,

to keep the grass

perfect and trim,

unlike the men

pushing the machines.
