Oleander Tea

Those we love... Dreams we weave .... Brews we steep...

These relativisms can poison our hearts and take us 

to dark corners few explore.


I am a hypnotist... seducing ears with songs of love, songs of passion.


I am irresistable... twinkling eyes over the top of bad-boy smiles.


I am untoucable... reaching hands over red carpet trails.


I am a god... a royal in lands where there are no Kings.


I am Rockstar....

Seduction of Sadness

Sadness danced through our streets today. 


It caressed our unwitting faces and petted the tops of our hands...

A flirtation. A invitation.



Sadness flooded our ears with its divine melody today.


It pressed cocktails of sorrow against our lips...
Intoxicating are songs from an angel's broken heart.



Sadness asked me to dance today. 


Its hips swayed against mine, warm breath licking my neck...
Chills on my skin.


Sadness stole a tear from me today.

It offered me songs of prosperity, songs of abundance...

Forever I must cry.

Caught in Our Own RibbonWEBNOSIG.jpg

My Own Ribbon

Teased by restraints that do not bind... 

Measured only by memories that have made me blind...

 Spoken words meant to cloud and confuse my mind...

I am tangled in my journey — a destination I cannot find...

Democracy WEB res.jpg


What’s happening to Democracy?
Why have we torn away our optimism torn away our dreams? 


Left are the strips that bind us... the strips that blind us.



What’s happening to Democracy?
Why has our climb become our suspension?


Hanging our humiliation in the world’s square...

our vunerability in the world’s lair.



What’s happening to Democracy?
Where’s the land for the fallen? Do they ascend or simply end?


Echos fill our ears with tails past... about a Democracy

that could not last....

Last Fish

Modern Messiah

I saw him today. The one who protects us... on the subway


I saw him today. The one who rejects us... two tables over at lunch


I saw him today. The one who accepts us... at the dry cleaners


I saw him today. The one who collects us... in you, me, them, us... every human every where.


I saw us today. The ones that affect us... we are hope, we war and peace, we are fear and bravery, we are happiness and sadness... we are love-life- living... we are Modern Messiah.
