At first it might have been coincidence that we heard so many car horns shifting through the Doppler effect, or checked in at hotels where girls in Sunday best held  hands and sang interminable folk tunes.

Night Cemetery VisionMoonlight bathes headstonesIn elongated shadows,Casting a cynical glow.Perfectly aligned mercenariesLong ago legions,Covenants to life’s carnage.Brittle cement markersForgotten names etched andAdorned in plastic flowers.Resurrected in moments,Dream state paralysis-Are you remembered tonight?








NATALITY
​Every baby is born to greatness
there is a stainless beauty
installed in a clean heart
love and tolerance
wired into the soul

imbues and cicerones
the steady hand
of a mother and father

Lost in luminescent daylight
and memories of thermal water
to what end
humanity awaits
its glorious creation
