Raw Discourse.


Raw Discourse.


His mouth an open sewer,
obscene and always heard,

spewing four letter tirades\

that spelled out his ignorance
till his tiny daughter
repeated him several times
and then at last he desisted.









Black and Blue!


She wore a long

black gown and veil,
her forehead stippled

with grey ashes
like some haunted

wraith she wandered
among the bright

colors of life,
Flowers wilted as

she passed them,
her heart a cold

stone in her chest,
and she stood out

like a sore thumb,
at her former

lovers wedding
hitching a cruel

ride on his joy.










Seeds Of Lead.


Suddenly across

the tanned field
of a six foot area, 

twenty year old growth
that squatted

between dunes,
red flowers burst,
spraying the air
with the pollen of life.

Men cried out in awe,
at its terrible beauty,
as another unfortunate soldier
died in the hellhole of Iraq.

Later small desert blooms
feed off his life fluids.
