ne quid nimis

the first-quarter moon
riding gray serpentine clouds:
neither god nor fiend

America’s karma, or hubris and nemesis

epochal contest –
lying know-nothing versus
cunning warmonger.
either will blindly lead us
into the bottomless pit

fine words – Bush and Obama speak at Dallas memorial service

what a mockery!
two purveyors of brute force
invoke peace and love.
do as I say (not as I do):
hypocrites’ unsmiling creed
haunts still the suffering world

the rule of law

who doubted Clinton
would be accorded a ‘pass’
despite her recklessness?

but isn’t that criminal
negligence?   no – she’s a ‘macher’
[of course – in both senses…]

de rerum natura

both are we: the worm
and robin searching; the fly
and weaver of webs;
sun naked in its splendor,
moon hidden in clouds and mist

late Spring vigil

moon  mute companion
I stand midst clover watching
pale clouds blithely morph

winners AND losers

the Drone Meister says
I’m with her – yes, Frick and Frack
going hand in hand
draw all into the Abyss
both of body and spirit
