BLEATING


In her flesh is the agony
of the lamb's fight for life,
her bleating
In her 'juice' are the
fat and uric acid
of her bleeding.

LILY GILD


The plant weaves
its lilygild.
Its only desires..
rain and sunfire.

MAY THERE BE MORE FATHERS LIKE THIS


His mother told us
that Matt was reading
Charlotte's Web
to their child growing
in his mother's womb.

SILENT STARS


Tree choppers send
caterpillars live
through a chipper.
Long lines fishing boats
cut off dolphin flippers.
Mowers shred the fabric
of blooming ladies' slippers.
Sheep freeze when too soon
the fleece removed by clippers.
Jockeys who bet on races
more likely horse whippers.
Whales killed by pollution,
sonar, and shippers.
For cinnamon some kill
the plant as barkstrippers
Sturgeon cut open for
caviar
by modern fishermen rippers
who don't care that
the sturgeon have no zipper.
For topiary, plants
mutilated by
gardening snippers.
All of this happening
beneath the Big Dipper

BABY BOYS


Baby boy chicks
in San Diego sent
alive through
a chipper
and in Iowa
they are
sent through a crusher
as do the rich
and religious haters
send the poor
into profit sired wars.

AMENDING A COMMANDMENT


A certain cows' milk

company in our area

manufactured milk

crates which

said "Thou shalt not

steal" to which we

wished to add

"their babies' milk

from mother cows".

CASTRATED PLANTS


Seedless are
some watermelons
and limes,
grapes and clementines

 

Human manipulation

is plant castration.

CLUTTER


Clutter is sometimes
crystallized sadness,
or fear,
sometimes an ethical
decision to recycle,
or maintaining a warehouse
for those in need,
or simply someone
who doesn't have
enough time in the day
for all the work he does.

UNIVERSAL PASSWORD


The master key unlocking all doors is love.
The eternal password opening all secret places
is love.
The answer to all questions is love.
The solution to all problems is love.

The way out of all mazes is love.

GODGILT


Often criticism is

projected guilt...

we haven't forgiven

ourselves and fail

to see the

other as God-gilt

 

 

*

The Course In Miracles says the messages we give to others are

first meant for ourselves....

NOT RIPPING THE UNRIPE


Why should I rip
from tree fruit unripe.
Let it fill slowly
and swell with rain.

Why should human beings
hurry relationships
which unfold
gradually, peacefully

DECEMBER 28TH: THE FEAST OF THE HOLY INNOCENTS

December 28th:

the feast of the Holy Innocents
.. those 2 year old baby boys
slaughtered by Herod
in his mad search for the little
Jesus..

December 28th.. when little
baby trees.. slaughtered
.. begin to show up on the curb

their resident flightless
baby birds and squirrels
long smashed or scattered

other trees' green flesh turned
into ephemeral wrapping paper
and Christmas cards

.... forests shattered

Some tree choppers send
caterpillars live through a chipper.
Long lines fishing boats
cut off dolphin flippers.
Mowers shred the fabric
of blooming ladies' slippers.
Sheep freeze when too soon
their fleece removed by clippers.
Jockeys who bet on races are
more likely horse whippers.
Whales are killed by pollution,
sonar, and big shippers.
Some kill the plant.
For cinnamon they become
barkstrippers.
Sturgeon are cut open for
caviar
by modern fishermen rippers
who don't yet care that
the sturgeon have no zipper.
For topiary, plants are
mutilated
by sharp
gardening snippers.
All of this happens
beneath the silent
Big Dipper
