graveyard crows

read the headstones
smelling each inhabitant
before eating
here lies a slumlord
cluster bomb ceo
hedge fund trickster
.....can't be too cautious

without water

blue rigidity
is a hard pill to swallow
i must look elsewhere

earth note 133

brown leaves from last fall
make a winter thaw debut
the green of last year's grass
new crops
worms on a mid-january trip
they're flipping off the latitudes
with obscene gestures

avatar & connecting the dots in the oligarchy

it couldn't be more plain
conquer the aboriginals
scorch the earth
with the heaviest of heavy
fire breathing steel
let mother nature sort it all out

oh...and that precious mineral
will justify an empire's lust
for external & internal death
mandates approved by legislative

dots can stir undetected for only so long
before the quiet void
bends the light
toward cognition
the core of each free body
interlocked symmetry = liberation
