How Must The Individual Act Under A Dictatorship?


Shoulder’s burn heavy.

A young boy pushes a wheel

Through the red black dirt.


No One knows no limits


Seagulls soar over land.

Icy shafts of wind hit me.

My wings help me fly.


Without words 


Frosty exhales mark

An existence without words.

My flesh possesses me.


Endgame


My bloody thumbprint.

A determined stain.

A dignified oath


Elementary School


I notice


No one plays with the black kids 


remember the future

Reach into the past to…


How do I feel?


Winning at nine-square


I notice


The red rubber ball bounces out of bounds.

All players move up a square.


No one plays with the black kids.

How would I feel?


Reach into the past to

remember the future.


Where Is My Dad?


We both liked hiking in the forest.

Perhaps he decided to plant a tree for me

to climb when I get older.


6 Word Poem*


Dude, I’m not done yet…



*Editor’s note for 6 Word Poem – it’s supposed to be that way (the 5 words with one missing is part of the poem, as with my other punctuation, spacing and capitalization “mistakes” )
