I return to a pile of trinkets, so carefully saved through the years
Filling up the corners of my Sunday with necessary aggravations
Trinkets with expectations of service and inevitability shimmer in the veiled recesses of my mind
I tell some to take the day off, to go and visit some friends
While I rearrange the furniture
I plan to throw them away and recycling comes to mind
Recycling aggravations into positives
finish incomplete tasks
Remove the attachments and uncouple the embarrassed, resentment of the spurned,
place in a toxic waste bin and maybe they’ll be re-purposed
Cycle existence into something new
Say goodbye and set them free
Right before where I should be
I crawled to the big and shiny
Upload me down
Engulfed in the pleasure of purchase
Instantaneous buy in
Wrapped in my super protective ego
Born brand loyal
Filtering the stop-motion of a side-way review
It starts with that crazy mind fuck shit
No chance for reconciliation
How did I get here?
Don’t tazze bro
Upper Sandusky looked just like Lower Sandusky
We drove through anyway
The trees fell and the rain danced across the windshield
I turned the wipers on low
She marvels at the birds
The geese are flying the wrong way
A hawk on her shoulder telling her secrets
The gas station takes plastic
Not welcome and annoying adverts below. I neither support nor endorse the products listed.
I see you; caring for and helping. I feel you when you think no one does.
This is a cheer for you.
As you know
Radicalism and intolerance are antithesis to life
Killing is the most absurd form of defense and protest
Wiping out a life is wiping out our future
There is a loss of ideas and discoveries. There is a loss of love, family and companion. A loss that cannot be quantified, it can only be known personally. All of us know we’ve lost something.
There is work to do.
Living to help others is the only possible reason to live.
Nuance is dead.
It died the first day mtv aired. Though we love our hyper-reality we lose our intimacy.
Our deep dive into technological oblivion brought us here. And I love it.
Just say it clean. Just say it clean.
We live in the best of times. Who could have imagined there would be all of this? Fortunately human nature is somewhere south of perfection. We require struggle. We need adversity.
Go ahead on and try. Go ahead on and fail. Please make mistakes so we can all learn.
It’s time for in your face camaraderie.
Strength is found in good will.
If you need to win you can win through love. Winning is not the goal.
The concept of winning should be left to race car drivers and the like.
Humans succeed through love. We discover through hardship.
Go ahead on and share.
We are together.
The struggle may be hard, lonely and at times unbearable but the payoff is divine.
Keep up the good work.
I believe in you.
Edged side aways
Everybody got a banner
Rolling thunder of text
High Def glamour That runway smells good
Red words in my own voice
High Def profanity Have a taste
Attack pause Attacked
Happy puppy appears -Whew thank you
Back to the mix
Headlines scream of expected atrosities
Paid for. It sells
Everybody so righteous
The righteous we are
Happy to be pissed or
Happy to do the pissing
Happy for your misery and
Happy to be miserable
Happy is our cloud based committee of merry despair

Art in small doses
Art has a cause
Art leads a cause
A revolution through design
No need for weaponry
No need for an arsenal
Art is an IED
Art wants collateral damage
Express it large
Express it small
Express it with colors all over the wall
Free your music
Free your poetry
Free your pen and brush
Everything can be art
Free all the stuff
