Conflict & confusion.
What comes, and has been.
Of fact, and of fiction.
One world, many nations

Dear Mom & Dad,

I won't be coming home quite as soon as once thought. I have found a place where they really like me; a place like no other. Instead of being shunned and despised, like most places, I'm invited to everything:
and parades,
my neighbors even welcome me with open arms. Suffice-to-say, I finally feel like I belong and plan to stay a while in this country.

Your Son,
Covid-19 Coronavirus, III

Hazy street lamp light,
illuminating nocturnal spirits or otherwise
the ghost of a fire burning low,
all green tinder and ember,
its tender lain down
for the night.
This post is inspired by a glass of mediocre Cabernet Sauvignon...I don’t even drink reds

Earth is in orbit.

I can see it in the window.

From the window of this

A crew of
Four souls

In gravitational symphony.

A crew of
Four colors

Ad rem and

The vastness of space
Brought us together.

What's the transmission?

"Why can't the world below
Live like this?"

I am daylight
of a dissolving stay
in Paris
looking over
wrought-iron dreams
peering through
baroque and promises
at the ransom note
written on
a sleeping **** sunbather's
where it reads:
"...our marriage
was nothing more
than a foxhole to you.

From top

I find this
underneath the ice:

The Earth
is bi-polar

It smells like
French toast
During the Renaissance

The taste of which
Leaves me starving
For perspective and humanity

Success in today's
Business world
Often comes with consequences

Like finding out
The little people
You stepped on to get
To the top
Were your own children
