Kaleidoscope

Culture, Spirit and In-Spirit-ation

Beautiful creations!
The human race and its colors truly are kaleidoscopic.

“And GOD said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” Genesis 1:26

I stand quietly

RetroStank

Dirty, Naked & Happy

I stand quietly while you do somersaults on the bed as you aren’t being naughty, you are just trying to get your out of sync body under control.

I stand quietly by the toilet door every time you need to go, and come with you around the house, and sometimes even just across the room, because I know you can feel truly frightened when you are not near me.

I stand quietly at the supermarket checkout while everyone stares at you barking like a dog and blowing raspberries on my arms to cope with the buzzing lights.

I stand quietly while you tell the baffled shop owner that you are looking for shoes that feel hard like splintered wood because your skin can’t bear soft things.

I stand quietly when the attendant gives us scornful looks when I ask for the key to the disabled toilet because the hand dryer…

For 2011’s college graduate: The “Ketchup” 

poetry.
  
deadlines stay catching us unprepared
when we said another new season wouldn’t catch us here
gotta stare fear in its face 
for the ambrosial tastes of destined glories.
best way to deal wit situations is to change situations
eyes desire new vegetation 
feelings surge from the muladhara 
pounded blood beats as never before 
journeying broadens cooper rivers 
got me swimming in tributaries 
upstream from society’s traps n cemeteries 
with mo talents than a tree has cherries 
in the spirit of revolutionaries
fight n Art in my capillaries.
Ppl will ask why u here? like u handicap
Mumble n answer wherein in dis life  I managed to be at
Washin hands–in the mirror,  the lion is there 
Memories of The fiercest u grin n glare
Then the realization that every second of hesitation is damnation
Cuz onze ans (11 year old) cousin book inspired so
That the bloodline higher must go.
And it’s funny that’s it jus takes time
Coddled babies spoiled not refined
George called the other day of his denying
Teachin his three of motivation hard work 
Nickel spoons not quite silver
Middle class it’s own place to deliver
Boys n girls starry-eyed n feet a foot too high
See many presents spoil the child
Gold hoops lost before a month styled n strutted.
2009 Beemer, paid and insured
When you ain’t never earned it.
This is “the Ketchup”.
Tomatoes are for marinara, pizza, and salad.
Multi-purposed, like you and I.
