Easter Sunday

Every year, my momma bear
Arranged selections of confectionaries,
Sweets and treats that symbolized the revelation of
The elation and celebration promised by God:
Eternal joy deployed through Christ as He
Rose from the grave on the third day.

Eggs brightly colored and smothered in stickers,
Gave our cozy kitchen a sense of Spring,
Gathering the family in play before Sunday service.

Honoring the hour when humanity was finally
Unified as a tribe of spiritual beings,
Nothing can steal the steel bond forged in

Times spent together, as a family furthering symbols of compassion.

The American Dream


Twisted
entrails torn out 
of cheap, Armani suits 
are the guts given up by men 
conquered and suppressed in wars waged daily, 
fighting for a spot in the race 
and losing the battle 
to hearts that are 
twisted.
