yes freedom also means you have the right to believe anything no matter how patently false unequivocally backasswards and unceremoniously walk away from common sense and wisdom to devote your entire being to the pursuit of social injustice and economic inequality

the boy made worlds

where they could live

the girl commanded the currents

to lean back not take no one

too far out cuz no one 

would or could

get hurt

got a promotion this week -- Clinical Director -- at
... excited to make a greater impact for our community ... listening and speaking from the heart ... helping my team of outpatient case workers support our people out in South Natomas and North Highlands ... life is more and more challenging on the streets ... what with mental illness and socioeconomic challenges ... cultural/racial injustices. i ask myself every day: what more can i do to help? at least i have a small platform and some skills to offer. 8 years clean off the hard stuff. what with the poetry, the books, my friends, as a therapist, life keeps getting more and more exciting.

4 keeps

the days dull the 

dreams replete with

life she did not have 

the stuff was null

the bills the clothes the boxes mac

and cheese. ultimately

encouraged to be dependent 

to be broken she 

sometimes forgot 

the best about herself what 

was 4 keeps

bad reel

your appearance

like a film with award winning 

acting cinematography and stunts

a musical score to die for  

without a genuine screenplay

to lend it credence was 

a non event for 

our hearts

the world 

if you cannot keep up 

with her 

delivers a volley 

to the body



this too

shall pass
