“One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman.”  Simone de Beauvoir

Always That Something

To be close to her is to
feel the cosmos
beating in my heart
running lucy’s diamonds,
essence of fairy dust,
pockets of poppies,
nosegays of lively moves,
handfuls of shooting stars
that tingle goosebumps
in ripples of swoon,
drenched in the purple
of mountains and
the turquoise of reefs,
always that something,
to be close to her is to
have it all.

The Madness of Crowds

Brave & Reckless

I do not forget. Parkland, February 14, 2018


the streets run red
with the blood
of innocents
deemed acceptable
collateral damage
in an uncivil war
where corporations
and fetuses
enjoy more rights
more protections
than living children
who remain caught
in the crosshairs
their transparent packs
carried on slight shoulders
heavy with the weight
of our future
stains from the latest
massacre scrubbed from
the asphalt
barely dry
before the NRA waves the
photoshopped
photochopped
Bill of Rights
in one hand
as they pass out
AR-15s loaded
with venom
and vitriol
with the other
while well-dressed politicians
walk on stealthy feet
whisper softly
to aim at the cattle chutes
students now wait in
before walking
single-file through
metal detectors
incredulous and disgusted
when they are told
that this will make them “safe”

What do you see # 20 – A roundup

Keep it alive

~*~

It felt good to be free at last, a long sigh escaping

Shedding her shoes with the burdens she carried

She stepped on the beach leaving footprints behind

Being without identity was an exhilarating thought
