self defense force

it is only prejudicial
when you do it without knowing why
it is heightened awareness
when the one that you hate
is hated because he wants you to die

so rise up instead
and strike him down first
show him no mercy
but see that he comes out the worst

remembering "go on"
remembering "peace is the absence of defeat"
remembering "our own way"

May 2011 Witch Weather

painted water

From whence we came
and whence we go,
ever aware of
cruel water's flow.

urban poet:
"I came like Water and like Wind I go."

by flood or by tornado
we lose the world we know
and watch the news
new homes to choose
not knowing where to go

painted water

"sixty-four feet she'll come
raising to the floor"
we pack our things, our harps and rings,
then, neatly lock the door.

urban poet:
painful water

the good lord willing and the creeks don't rise
mississippi river wider than the skies
open the levee and save the city
cajun people get no pity
