Unclaimed

unclaimed thoughts
accruing interest
sorting the box of misled notions

sifting out scattered, mixed emotions
reducing the simplest
unclaimed thoughts

unclaimed thoughts
choosing itinerant
listening to varied promotions

intoxicated by their potion
my sot deliberate
unclaimed thoughts

unclaimed thoughts
ideas disparate
found the lost of going through motions

sorting the box of  misled notions
accruing interest
unclaimed thoughts

Climbing Helix

helical
the mystery of out
same in turn, moves not forward but up

with every bend lessons closeup
mind’s circle turns about
helical

helical
each pass recycles doubt
standing in pointed spin not enough

see the pattern and fill the cup
choosing the ladder’s route
helical

helical
circled trap spirals out
erasing all that stands in the bluff

unraveled chords write the song of trust
once heard, never without
helical

Shadow Walk

Shadow walk
City of turquoise blues
His wake creates rippled pavement night

Dark angel wings raise and take first flight
Carving a channeled groove
Shadow walk

Shadow walk
Toward the light he moves
Shadow boxing with urban delights

Thank you tonight’s Poetics host Claudia over at the dVerse Poets Pub for the inspiration
It tied so well with a recent image taken of my brother on a stroll in our hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico
He likes to keep things short and sweet so I only add ~ My love to you

The Blood Merchants

Blood merchants
Their last commodity
For they have no lobbyists to speak

There is no voice for the growing weak
Drowning in poverty
Blood merchants

Blood merchants
No longer oddities
For many shades of outlook stand bleak

Through the centrifuge every week
In silent colloquy
Blood merchants

Blood merchants
Let this line prophecy
A calling fate on more this will wreak

The bloodletter’s deal for many will leak
Absent life’s quality
Blood merchants

I decided to give a little background on this piece. As with many people of my country and this world, I have found myself working harder than I ever have to bring in just enough to keep the roof over my head. In these events I found myself at a local Plasma Donation clinic. It’s a two-fold trip for me, I earn a some change to help keep food in my stomach and help those in need with life-giving plasma. Being at this clinic has allowed me to meet and share with people from ALL walks of life that find themselves in the same shoes…”I just need help getting by” they say to me each time I visit the blood merchants line. My reply? A smile and “My friend, so do I”.  The shame they feel, the hopelessness, the worry…it simply breaks my heart. I have met all types, businessmen, stay at home moms, our proud soldiers, and yes…people just like me and some very different. Each caught up in their own financial circumstances, each caught in their own tangled worries, each not even remotely in the minds of the people sworn to serve their needs.  I wrote this piece today as I made my donation for them, for the voices that are not heard. To all the cash lined ideologues arguing between wrong and right, its time to notice that the blood merchants are standing in line, day and night.

Fecundate Commodity

You again
Run your fingers through me
I placate your appetite for words

Dissect my offering into thirds
Results I never see
You again

You again
Adrift sycophancy
Lost in my nouns, adjectives and verbs

Where is my tribute soliloquy?
Thumbed pages are left disturbed
You again
