Children Destroyed by Hamas

-

and how do you
decide which child to hang
to protect your mass weapons

inanimate objects
with souls of small children
taken from parents

murder the mother?
how else would you take their child
hurt them physically?

stop their screaming?
their cries do not bother you
heartless evil creatures

destroy everyone
generations of evil
mentally tortured

you erased
everything humankind has learned
protecting children

what was done to you
that you would do this to them
look forward to death

how many children
did you not only murder
but blame Israel

Born to Strife and Contention

Hamas Hangs Children to Act as Human Shields

Born to Strife and Contention

when will and passion are removed,
when resistance double-talk
is branded onto never-ending anxiety,
when determination and satisfaction
are as fundamental as food,
a mind-blowing similitude is imprinted
of one’s self crawling over pulverized concrete,
as the gnawing sound of military boots
carries out abductions for victims
headed toward open graves.

why make weapons of destruction,
if not to inaugurate a bloody war,
to spate abuse and death by genocide,
to create statistics of shelved body parts
and to encourage irrational ideology?

chilling to the teeth,
tranquil in scorching sun,
courage is to be remembered.
dogmas and –isms draw us
into the non-poetry of decomposition.
coexistence mutates into an abstract,
bipolar state of observance and malevolence.

when level-headed ethics never prevail,
and macho men rampage with sincerity,
madness undermines every rational practice
of benignity and simultaneity.

aqua aquarius

when the moon is in
another day at the beach
the seventh hour

sun glistening eyes
helicopter hovering
the twelfth hotel’s sky

in the distance
mr. mullet wonders why
you are getting smaller

walking backwards
only way to see dolphin
who catches any fish

bulldog understands
just like everyone here
pictures of the sunset

seagull swoops in front
giant black feather in sand
almost a peacock

uhnuh bird chirping
landing on swaying palm tree
on top of your head

this entire life
never knowing what makes this noise
sounds like uhnuh

Ottie sees bulldog
father falls on his bulldog
heated argument

he walked a long way
pictures of the sun setting
over the ocean

wife walks through silk creek
taking pictures of husband
on the other side

many people say
it’s alright you can go through
he is not aware

newlyweds kissing
colorfully matching white palms
dressed blue and white

no halloween warmth
the age of aquarius
seventy six high

-

“dawning of the age
then peace will guide the planets
love will steer the stars”

Age Of Aquarius

last thing you do
when you leave your home
put the doorbell back together

first task on hand
when you arrive at your new home
unscrew the doorbell

friday doorbell rings
so you jump through the ceiling
how can that happen

fire alarm works
toaster oven sets it off
eggplant parmesan

saturday doorbell rings
screws are safely in drawer
man came to fix locks

how did it do that
he said oh yeah it did ring
bending the wires

so they will not touch
anything important
or out the door it goes

i heard a haiku
while making eggpant parmesan
then i forgot

Eames said this about her father

then i realized
possibly funny
because i forgot what she said

leaving behind john’s chair
seeing him move two times

a man with new york accent
florescent trunks

“would you like tickets
for dinner and restaurants

i am so confused
never seeing anyone

telling him “FIFTY

i said i don’t drive
this is what he understand
not that i live here
