of dust and pain

First Published in Poppy Road Review, September 2018 The slow effervescence the vaporizing effect of the sadness body losing itself to the thin air slowly and surely the mothball slowly giving it to the air its existence and its frailty and the deep sense of attachment the ephemeral bond between the existence and frailty the curled … Continue reading of dust and pain

An exercise in futility

Following the sham of a Senate hearing (Brett Kavanaugh Vs Dr. Christine Ford)for the last few days has made my blood boil with rage and anger.I'm appalled and enraged at its possible outcome.

Assaulted – Aurora Phoenix

Come read this poem from the talented Aurora Phoenix which paints the brutal face of our reality.

Whisper and the Roar

you were pushed from behind

I heard in the breathless notch

while the other lays claim

with eyes or clammy paws

to my plush backside

of cultured terror apparent

the carbon dated anguish

etched on your skin

your pain quivers

on articulated tips

that stretched rubber band

that inhabits cells

twangs unbidden

and we sproing!

he tantrums

spews vile rhetoric

wields his power

his privilege

in ways she would burn

at stake

would she dare give voice

were she to cry crocodile

her ovaries would fry

ahhh those tantrums

we choke down

swallow hot with rancid…

First published in Vita Brevis Literature, September 2018 Those dainty droplets running over my windows and leaving a trail a residue of pain, what if the rain feels pain what if it reminisces of the long-lost company the melody of the wine tingling glasses getting slowly warmed near the old fireplace /that brooding pain/ that … Continue reading The orphaned rain
