Ever Falling

Images fill the cyber sky,
Mad logics, worse than Wonderland,
Parting the real world with
Offensive slurs and storms:
Too many to count, and somehow
Even with so many resisting,
Nothing seems to change – all
Caught like a waterfall that is
Ever falling and ever held back.

Dare

Don’t ever
Allow Excessive
Reason to coldly
Erase your dreams


Be Still

Sometimes (thought too rarely, in truth),
I like to sit and be still, to
Listen to the world and
Empty my mind of thought, of plans –
No worries, no inner monologue: a
Calm, tranquil pool of water, too often too
Easily unsettled, unbalanced, or drained


Governed by a Fickle Director

Some ancient myth – No,
Propaganda proposed by
Rapacious clothing stores. Or
Ill-conceived set changes,
Not timed well, constantly re-ordered –
Governed by a fickle director.


Enduring Contradictions

Popular in word
Around the world
Though uncommon
In practice.
Enduring contradiction:
Need immortalized in shouted
Creeds building up to
Empty promises.


Nearly Inconceivable

Impossibly
Major yet somehow
Possible – in theory
Or, at least, in
Some futures: Nearly
Inconceivable, with
Noisome overtones and
Grueling implications.


A New Hope

Brought into the world for all
Our sakes: a gift to the family,
Ready-made, but also another chance, a
New hope, however uncertain, for the future
