Centering… Hate Speech

 

 

Bridge – there is

A bridge.

The construction company

Of the mad is

Working on

Such a bridge

As only human

Hearts can

Build with their bright

Eye-sockets rotating

Inward and out.

 

If completed, this bridge will

Bridge all oceanic walls.

Founded on heart-beats

It cannot fail.

The nails

In turn

Already hum

Tomorrow’s

Victory.

 

 

 

 

COP23 Climate Change Summit – Bonn

 

 

I once had… a mood.

A clue

With

A view…

 

Took a plastic axe and went

Looking for some friends

Who’d tell me where to find

A tree in need of defending.

 

Took my head to a doctor and

Asked him of the joke… why

Temperatures aren’t catching

Once you fly the sigh bilateral.

 

Took the last tram to La Mancha:

I had something to confess

Like love’s super-naturalness

Not found at this address…

 

And all the way

On down

The tin-woman

Kept on

 

    C
      R
        Y
          I
           N
             G.
