Open Minds, Open Borders

Simply being human

is the passport

simply breathing

is the visa

which grants you the right

to live wherever you may choose

on this planet.

Office Tweeter Socially Benchmarking

Ah, the way the wind blows

Matters not to men in offices insulated

But ask the fisherman casting his net on the soul grating sea

Or the red cheeked child with ebullient eyes

To whom the parade of kites portrays a world of rainbow possibility.

Ah, the comma. Just a squidgy dot, waste of space

Matters not to the frenetic tweeter

But ask the teacher who commits her life

To a generation

Who’ll either plant trees or start fires,

Depending on whether they had enough time

To, for reflection, pause.

Ah, the pen marks on the wall

Scars on the beautiful flower pattern

To the Joneses.

For the mother, a reminder timeless of days innocent

Before Responsibility’s wings

Flew her young from the nest.

Say No To Economically Modified Art

No artist bankers

No artist management consultants

no artist frackers

More Artist Taxi Drivers

More artist youth workers

More artist nurses

More artist cleaners

Row calm on the waves of your insomnia

and paint the picture the stars stay lit 

for your inner eye to see

and each thunderous vibration of every gentle

brush stroke

we the masses will feel

guiding us

into each other’s embrace.
