travelling down country road today
breathing in crystal clear fresh air
forests rushing by in all shades of green
the band across my heart broke
and I could breathe again

There are waves in me I cannot tame, only sing to

 
When we define flow  
it is far too easy to think  
of rivers and oceans  
whose bodies are liquid
existing in tides †
and seasons  

why is it so difficult  
to think of us as pliable;  
that women too are water  

our blood cleansing  
and nourishing flesh,  
our ecosystems †
that cry out to Earth  
heal me in the deep
burn of release

(NoPoo 160) Muse

the muse shines upon
ln guided inspiration
for words on paper
forming all the syllables
in describing her beauty

forty five degrees

 



i watch
cold steel
glide along
a swan
neck,

she
hums
a gentle
song

as i
strip her
unruly
feathers.

the birds pecked on my window pane
this morning
I tapped back
they watched me for a moment
and then flew away
I'm grinning
and I don't know why

For the first time in forever

I drank  
peppermint tea
at a cafe
 
sat outside
with friends
 
laughed
 
ate avocado  
& tomato smash
 
nobody seemed
to mind masks
dangling from ears
as we talked
 
devoured
good food
 
made plans
to swim in lakes
whose red tape
had fallen
to the ground.

wild world

 



people
play with
wildfire
and scream
about the
widespread


wild things
burn
without
your
permission.

her trembling ragged breathing

briefly
his fingers ran through my hair
his eyes looked deep into mine
as the waters closed over my head
I stared at him
and refused to blink
came up gasping for air
no, not today, Naiads
I thought walking away
from the pool under the waterfalls

Home Sweet Home

 
In the North
there are friends
loved ones
lakes to swim
 
in the South
only memories  
pinned upon
mournful skin

so much words spoken
so much thoughts shared
there was never enough time
to say it all out

then like a Phoenix
you rose up
from cold ashes

to say something
again

Immigration Reform

Immigration Reform  
Question I must ask, were you American born  
If not  
Then X marks the spot  
Voices crying, marches to hear  
Congress turning a political deafening ear  
As a Nurse, I meet all nationalities, all races  
Worrisome looks upon so many faces  
Living the American dream  
Eight years ago, this issue was unforeseen  

New rules and new game  
Nothing ever stays the same  
Old players must now apply  
I have a job, family, weíre living the American pie  
Go back to where? To do what? Voices of so many immigrant outcries  
If this is America, to leave, we cannot understand why  

We contributed to a land not of our own  
Cooks, painters, landscapes, working our fingers as well to the bone  
You cannot get no more blood out of a stone  
Keeping love flowing within our homes  
Senate playing God while sitting upon their thrones  

Some, not all would say it contributes to our national debts  
Send them packing, and let our quota of employment be met  
Lazy is as lazy does  
No one blocks your path from taking care of the ones you love  
Is immigration reform right, should we feel less for others  
Babies left here without their mothers  
ICE knocking on the door, the new age Gestapo  
Deported pass the boarder wall, what an uncoordinated fiasco  

School rules, two languages itís best you learn  
Jobs posted for bi-lingual, canceling out your money you needed to earn  
I speak English, itís my official tongue  
This is where the spiraling effects of demonstrations dividing us all as one  

Making revisions for my living  
Interpreters seeking while my tax dollars are giving  
Medicaid coverage, most likely, the source of income  
I fought in the military, yet my journey to exist has not been won  
Expensive food items set on the table  
Iím hard working, yet my refrigerator is set to disabled  
My taxes paying for immigration care  
I have health insurance, my medical conditions causing me to live on thin air  

Mexican restaurants erected everywhere  
From money sent from over there  
No jobs to assist, other than their own  
Now you understand when a voice like mine are not alone  
This is the land of the free and the brave  
Cross their border, you dig your own grave  
Cross ours you live  
We give, we give, and we give  
Some have not even taken it upon themselves to be considered free  
It sometimes makes it harder for the working to some degree  

The oath to stay, presence hidden in the dark  
No papers, looking over shoulders caring who larks  
Criminal acts  
Known facts  
Running across the border not even looking back  
You will return once all is settled in time  
Crossing back over the border, using your Americanís family dime  
 
All in all, we must get along to remain emotional prefilled  
Congress will come to sign a legislator bill  
I have enough love to concur, in times such as this  
It never mattered who was sailing their ship  

For the silent voices, I brought this issue as due  
What you do with the concept is totally up to you  
Take care of your home, as if it was your own  
Life related issues sings its own song  
Therefore, we must all coexist  
Immigration Reform, was a matter to discuss on my Nurseís wish list

A Kryptonite of Flesh


a thunder of delicacy
as formidable as it is tender
under my ear
almost to neck
but
not quite

close enough
to distinctly hear
every.
single.
breath.
taken.


which is done
intentionally
of course

as that spot
is where
all my willpower
goes to die
a slow glorious death

that spot

of my most sensitive flesh

wired by nerves
directly connected
to my innermost core
the sanctum
of all
that is welcomed torture
and where unmitigated willing abandon,
gladly
awaits to be tapped

to forget anything and all

and to just


say

YES.




to everything.
