Once again our nation…our world…is mired…in a sad and gloomy fog

as 11 more people have been massacred in a Pittsburgh synagogue…


11 innocent people praying one minute…the next ceasing to exist 

11 innocent people added to a long and growing list.


Once again we are filled sorrow…once again our grief we can’t disguise

Once again we feel for the families…once again the whole world cries…


Yes, once again we’re crying as more of our innocence drifts away

because tears are all we have left…when we have no more words to say.

Squealing pigs;

non kosher,


are sacrificed to the birds

and are eaten alive


The hawks descend 

from above

to take their spoils


their claws dig into their flesh

and rip them apart

Auto Phobia (Hatred of oneself)


It is not an object that ought to be joked or ridiculed at sight.

It will destroy you during the day; it will destroy you at night.

It will destroy you every waking second of each day.

It will destroy your affiliations and make others turn the opposite way

It will extinguish your triumphs and make them appear petty.

It will provide you the urge to pick up that like a machete.

It is not just something you can get rid of at whatever time you choose.

It passes around an addiction to afflict your own bruise.

It will capture your body and leave you with no control.

It is like life in prison with no chance at parole.

It is a murderer. It is an evil. It is a disease.

It will have you just constantly weeping on your knees.

No individual can help for they do not understand,

They look past the scars that are at the point proximal to your hand.
