For Day 9 – January 9th 2017

alphonzo[another day late poem]

Weathering the storm
Watching
The killing of a democracy

While easy enough for
Elected officials who
Do not listen to their
Constituents

[Resistance is a popular
Movement]
It is all the hope
People are strong
Enough to do
so

Day 7 January 7th, 2017

Day 7 January 7th, 2017

 

 

Round about
a way
Not straight
true north
Nor west

Places that never
belong to anyone
Well, they should
not belong to anyone

They need to be free
As we need to be free
Not encumbered

She smiled, with
her blue eyes bright
As she twirled
a bit of her hair

Day 6 Poetry Challenge

 

Uncertainty

From deep within

Layers of Euphemia

delicate like a woven silk

Aging parchment

Covers hide scars

Of pain,

weighty desires

of peace

She wanders

Tracing maps

Fingertips

framing out

new places

in her disturbed

mind

to go

Day 5 January Poetry “Red”

Day 5 January Poetry “Red”

John Reed
Words Marked in Red

Red dahlia ranunculus
Are fussy in the front hall
But there it was in all it’s glory
Red

Reds
A Communist or Socialist
A revolution at a time people
arrested trying to get rights
For Labor Unions

Red tides
Have we reached
into the same bucket of time
For Dissent?
A matter for rich or the poor
People need to take action
It begs the question
How and what
Nonviolent tactics the best
Red

Day 4 January Neegan “I will shut that shit down.”

Day 4 January Neegan “I will shut that shit down.”

Day 4, January 2017 Poetry

Neegan: “I will shut that shit down.”
“…it sucks that moment you realize you know nothing.”

I lit sage
Walking through the dwelling.
Winding my arms around
smoke billowing, cleansing out
all the negative energy in this space.
I want all this transitory shit
outta here;
I will resist

Syntax, The Unexpected Error

Syntax, The Unexpected Error

Day 3 January 2017 Poems

Tweets ought to be
birds singing
Yet, we sigh,,, some
Unconvinced vernacular.
Those that believed, |Still|

Others, set in their ways;
For change, ought not
See,
See,
Have
Seen
the disruption.

1930s come, go.
1950s come, go.
2016 come, go.

We bargain, we fear, we rage
“We” in the mixture of the
larger audience needs to
reach into the bowels,
the sanguine parts
And twist,
Bloodied
we turn

Build voices
quiet resistance
less than a number of ticks
How many 140?

Tick, tick, tick-
tock.

January 2017 Day 2 of 31 days of poems

January 2017 Day 2 of 31 days of poems

Grit

The ether formed,
her lips and mouth
|small words|
a whisper
that enlightened
just few who
listened for a mere
second in time

What happened in her life
to cause this isolation
From love, dreams

Or is it grit
that caused the chasm?
Leaning into it that chasm
taking small sips from
the pool of water
|Drowning in the silence|

Dark chasm
Musing on silences while
The chalk paint scratched
Fingers dug the ground finding
Crystals shining

She died quietly without
fanfare
or any persons sitting
around her bed
in compassion and caring.
