Unanticipated Consequence: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Free Verse Poem

December 5, 2014

The unanticipated consequence
of having
a heart that’s breaking,
and
a soul that searching,
and a mind that’s wondering,
is that a view
of San Francisco bay
at sunset
absolutely flat lines
you.

Nothing.
No emotions.
No memories.
No smiles.
No desiring Allejandro’s.
No craving
walking down Columbus Street
or North Beach to find some pasta
or cannoli.
No wishing for family style
in Chinatown.

Oh wait!
There IS a memory.
A blond haired,
blue-eyed
man,
with his back to the Golden Gate Bridge,
Russell Wilson jersey repping,
hands raised
high
in the air,
middle fingers
extended.

Yep.
F the Whiners.
F the Quakes.
F the A’s.
And the Giants.
F San Francisco.

But mostly,
F the Whiners.

Acting Hollow And Empty: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Poem

August 4, 2011

The feelings
And desires
we profess
With deep impassioned words
And emotions
Seem hollow
and empty
When we continue to act
As though they are
hollow
And empty.
