In desert,

emotions hang dry,

owner-less,

seeking shel-

Most Days, They’re Embarrassed, and Most Days, They’re Mean

Fatigue clings, gripping

feverish self hatred when

they scold and point, turn-

ing red, hating the fragile

man who needs their acceptance.

One Day There Was Betterment in a Tiny Auditorium

Children holding his

tablets, moving miniscule

planets. Forget my

past, he screams, slowly curing

needy pieces of dog fur.

When fear steals 

my house, patios

astray, pushed

by her, tossed

off balconies, blazing sun

bursts through, kills disease.

I Remembered It All When I Saw His Face While I Walked by the Airport Newstand

Finally,

America 2017, #4 – Cackling Steeples

Crown darkens

forges impressions,

towering,

glaringly

laughing at insanity,

squashing my tiny mind.

Take a Look in the Mirror – Meditation on Mean People Pushing Their Big Carts Around at Costco

I see self,

but this moment, I’m
