Poem: Colorism

Colonialism started colorism The judgement of shades of skin The lightest pigmentation wins The game of inequality. It was created to subdivide Within the already divided classes Steps of hierarchy based on hues from darkest to lightest Stay in your designated space Don’t step outside of your place Dark skinned peasants worked the fields under blazing…

Poem: Standing Out

Standing out makes you other Objectifiable Vulnerable Anything above a B cup breast stands out Protruding Getting everyone’s attention Whether you want it or not They’re a burden Only big breasted women Understand what I’m exposing. Perhaps a requirement in male to female surgeries should include C cup and above sizing monthly bloodletting for 40…

Poem: Vegetarian

Memories of my sister cooking Korean chicken curry Veins bones muscles thighs legs fat blood dripping on the cutting board mat. I was always vegetarian ever since I was a child I refused to eat meat except seafood but lately stress has morphed me to conform. Workaholism is the norm. Stress brings out the monster…

Poem: Love #1

It would always Be between us. Hardly ever neutral Scalding or freezing Fighting or loving Ruptures of trust Everyday we Rebuilt the sacrifice Remodeled it Reanimated it reframed it renamed it our fools’ gold paradise naively waiting for a sign a different ending. The happiness lasted throughout underneath and despite the arguments was us in…

Poem: What’s the agenda?

Looking glass rabbit hole Earth as Wonderland Upside down rules Painted reality Interchangeable real and fake maladies. Even experts are fooled. All of life now is a forgery All our hero’s have fallen disgraced by scandals exposed as imposters Who gets to tell the official version of the story? Who decides which go to jail?…

Poem: Murder not Suicide

Celebrities have everything Fame, Wealth, Beauty and Death, disguised as suicide. I guess it’s who you know That gets you in the door So maybe what you know Or what you stand up for Will get you silenced. Anthony Bourdain Spoke for the underdogs He ate the world’s food Without snobbery Sharing tales of injustice…

Poem: Disinformation

We’re reaching the breaking point Critical Mass The lies that are and were spun Are unraveling Absolute unquestioning of authority is over.

Disturbing Media: Twilight Pedophilia

(If you haven’t read or seen Twilight, spoiler alert…) (During the filming of Twilight, Kristen Stewart was still a child and she had to take breaks from working to uphold the child labor laws, look at how young she was when the first film began.)

Poem: When I was engaged to be married the first time

I didn’t know there’d be 2 more proposals and no marriages. Every decade or so I meet a partner that I’m convinced Is the One Until he’s gone And then we’re both left crying After all the useless trying. It seems so incredibly rare To work the details out Solve the puzzle Reverse the doomed…

Poem: She was family

Unsplash.com She came to us in a cardboard box. Her natural ears were down her uncut tail was wagging long our baby doe-like clown warm copper reddish brown with short haired fur like a deer white chest, black muzzle mouth in a serious frown with a bright white stripe along her sweet frozen nose like…

Poem: Freedom

(For Spencer) Twin souls never stand a chance They were never meant to dance on Earth enraptured. Because it awakens jealousies when we usurp them circumnavigate the rote purpose dare to oppose their version of status conscious happiness. When souls disengage from pretend when we unfriend the robotics replace the screen with the actual. activate…

Poem: fool’s school

(to steve, the space cowboy) I loved you like I loved my dad both of you are such sad villains. Does handsomeness cause commitment phobia? For aeons long you were a jerk pervert, sadist predator hunter. Twenty years gone and you’re still playing the same recycled game of loss singing the same dead end refrain….

Poem: Dial waiting

Landline telephones Ringing themselves back to sleep Leave a message at the beep But no one checks their messages We’re all blocked and silent With vibrating pants. Texting is the fake new deal Pretending we’re real No one’s listening just Homeland security Amazon and the corporate CIA henchmen spinning lies. Facebook posting pics Of lunch…

Poem: Devil’s in the liquid

Ignore the raging guy repeating curses On the sidewalk behind me Taunting and launching verses That he’s “gonna kill me cause I’m a bitch” I grab a bottle by the throat from my groceries Just in case, to hit him with Attack fast, use the guise of surprise I don’t know how to fight But…

Poem: Landscapes of nostalgia

Walking through the city With earbuds on when everyone Looked like iClones During the iTech invasion I felt ancient modern With an imagined sword Worn like a guitar on my back Jeanne D’Arc in the darkened subway My eyes doubled a second layer of vision Timed to music objects became more rare I was a…
