till the sinners took the stage

we lived on the earth
till the sinners took the stage

we worked by the sun
then the sinners took the stage

they fooled everyone
when the sinners took the stage

the trees, they are done
now, the sinners took the stage

held in contempt of rouse

Held in contempt of rouse

the tower will always burn
and billow
and boast

in measurement.
a movement in treason


condescending valor
when valor means prowess.

a moment passing before it can begin
life is really
                                 a game of cards

and pedaling can't get you to the corner
were blood stained shivery

stands a chance.
the level playing field is next

but not yet. the spread is vast
spanning the length of seas cresting excused
and no one is responsible.

the Be Attitudes are like old growth forests
no one goes there

except to clear what can be
                                   (willing or not)

            to make room for the progress

cutting the lid off of an already opened container
spilling in the Gulf
                             feeding shrimp buffalo bills expiration

But it feels ok
as long as something is going on...

brita filters and The Beatles

we haven't been the boundary for awhile
you and i both know this

what has transpired...
(accumulated, if need be)

it can mean to collect
because it takes such things to live.

collecting hours of light given for free
yet taken

and kept with vigor
valued at minimum wage

And a wages meaning stolen from a Hindu word
still believing in ownership
waging bereaved residues

kept anesthetic
kept because the shoe is tied so easily

the beatles said, "Come together,"
awhile ago.

then came something that ended a child
that was going places

and, we all think we are grown
can grow...

so i just bought a brita filter.
