Prosetry Fragments

Heavy rain

falling

like the tears

of

so many

frightened children

-Paris-

Numbed

 

Hearing

          their

               own        

                     words

rehearsed and calculated

 

             playing to the crowds

 

emptiness

              has

                   it’s

                      own

                            sound

 

shallow thud

                                        echoed

 

promises

 

           and

 

matching smiles

                     with

                          all

                            the

                               warmth

plastic

 

and cold

           gravestones

 

 

people

         have long since 

                             become

                   numbers

mere statistics 

 

shake

        those

               hands

 

wave

      those

            flags

 

hold

     those

            babies

 

train             

     condition

                  desensitize

                                 blind

                                       deafen  

                                               divide

                                                     conquer

 

defeat

them

       

          young

                       on

This lifetime is indeed a strange thing

 

a

 meandering

line

 

meeting

all points

between

 

here, there

everywhere

anywhere

 

but nowhere

was not

an option

Shattered Lens

 

 

wraiths

              of

                               memories

immolation

                  of

                       self

a

                    repetitive

                                        curse

a

               familiar

                                    malady

a

               warped

                                   rhythm

expecting

                    knowing

                                      waiting

to

              forever

                                writhe

                                               in

                                                              mental

                                                                                    anguish

unable

              to

                           forgive

                                               oneself

unable

                to

                             forget

                                             past

unable

            to

                             transcend

one’s

              own

                              chains

                                              one’s

                                                            own

                                                                              bondage

Shattered Lens

 

 

In his words

 

unlimited

 

wisdom

 

 

in his eyes

 

sorrow

 

 

the weight

 

of

 

experience

 

 

the collected

 

burdens

 

of

 

a long life

Broken Prose Fragments

  

Only

after the formaldehyde

stained walls

were ally

brought

down

 

only

after the acrid stench

of the countless drying skins

that were left

hanging to dry

 

in

a silent darkness

in the dregs

of this tannery

 

The

faceless immigrant workers

whose

broken backs

mental scars

hardened hearts

long ago silent

 

In

a time of

bare bone wages

 

Yesteryear’s

common

ordinary

blue collar jobber

 

100 years

…this place of death

…of the poisonous concoctions

dumped into the Chicago river

 

Welcome

to a view

of early 1900’s

Chicago
