Julian Seeing Contempt

"Observing, then, that there is great contempt for the gods
among us"—he says in his solemn way.
Contempt. But what did he expect?
Let him organize religion as much as he liked,
write to the High Priest of Galatia as much as he liked,
or to others of his kind, inciting them, giving instructions.
His friends weren't Christians; that much was certain.
But even so they couldn't play
as he could (brought up a Christian)
with a new religious system,
ludicrous in both theory and application.
They were, after all, Greeks. Nothing in excess, Augustus.

Unload the Excess Baggage

I am not the one,
To walk around validating...
Every pinch felt from an illness.

Or am I the one to carry pain,
As if I've been awarded...
A medal for valor and honor.

Each day as I pray...
And after I awaken,
I feel tremendously blessed...
That God has pulled my sisters and I,
Through much heartbreak and stress.
We, in those days, believed we needed to address.

And when I hear some folks,
Making excuses for mistakes they've made...
I can go through any day,
Without seeking to be medicated.
To fake my feelings to numb the aches.

I want to keep it real.
That's how I feel.

I am not the one,
To walk around validating...
Every pinch felt from an illness.

Nor am I the one,
Seeking to skate through a life...
Speeded by an easy breeze.

God has blessed me!
And I know this.
And there is nothing better I can do...
Than to hold my head up,
And unload the excess baggage.
To live the best life feeling grateful.
And blessed to be able to confess it!

Homeland Security Distributes Excess and Inequity

Home land security distributing
Excess and inequity
dismantling democracy
Stagnant low wage occupations
fueling unsteady flow of steadfast rage
from mobilizing worldwide occupants.

Civilian camps assembled without fear
in the face of the machine,
stripped of civil rights,
democratic duty maligned by
Murdoch's corporate media bankroll
sentinels of the elite sent to dismantle
protecting the sacred name of state

Riot squads
tear gas pepper spray
peaceful eyes peppered
by patriotic toxin
sounding sirens
police state planet tocsin

voting booths hijacked
by an ambivalent league of
charcoal cowboys
children burning
ants upon the hill

bodies brutalized by
cruel unusual currents
high-voltage violence
people provoked from their homes
cattle inhumane prodded in the streets

the catalyst dies silent
anonymous asphyxia in
the subconscious night
hand of the affluent assassin
pulling petrol palaces
purple purse strings
oil can cover up leaks
upon the crime scene
chalk outlines smudged clean
forensic evidence made fingerprint free

Homeland security has little-nothing
to do with preserving the safety
of our homes you me or our
friends lovers neighbors family

to keep secure the imperial misers
gun barrel procurement of
gold and global power
to uphold poverty and greed
hatred and ignorance
at home and import abroad

American security translates to mere mammon bondage

binding the poor to the dirt
the dead to the earth
and blind souls to the
all consuming shovel

There Is Nothing That We Can See In The Sky

There is nothing that we
Can see in the sky rather than

Nothing But Air

We are
nothing
but hot air
disappearing
quicker
than a puff

Just see

Nothing Is A Waste

Don't say your life is a waste
for nothing is a waste
until nothing is thrown.

Nothing comes free-cost here; Jove will not let

NOTHING ON (for Janice)

Naked brown lady

running about my mind

running in and out

amongst my thoughts

nothing on my mind

but you

Nothing to Save

There is nothing to save, now all is lost,
but a tiny core of stillness in the heart
like the eye of a violet.
