Firearms make ghosts
Not just of victims
But mostly from hosts
Stop being human

(Another Not Right #Sonnet)
Bicycling in the city
Liberates my consciousness
I have not time to be witty
Or be filled with that wantonness

Riding through traffic jams
Requires only major senses
But deep within my soul demands
I think about life relentless

No devices, pictures or songs
Mapping, metrics or video
Riding my bike moves me along
(My phone makes me an idiot)

Cycling frees me from the belts
Of documenting someplace else

The spring crop is in
The Asian produce
She carefully tends
Local farm grassroots

I see grandmother
Tend this patch to soothe
Small farm amature
Remembering youth

By a Queens highway
She still remembers
When food shone brightly
& stokes those embers

A small patch of dirt
Revives times of hurt

Some things can't be unseen
They change our world too much
Nightmares can't be undreamed

Nor world's horrors untouched

I wrote another poem
About my imperfections
Humanity should know them
To better judge my actions

Thank you for all of my shortcomings
Imperfections make me who I am
Mistakes are a bit ego numbing
But it’s all part of a bigger plan

I revel in humanity’s costs
My uniquity cannot be free
without personality I’m lost
I’m supremely satisfied with me

The crazy person I have become
With sufficient eccentricities
A surrealist painting’s begun
This madness teaches life’s strange beauties

My perfection is in my strangeness
Human mistakes are never aimless

There are not words to express
The meaninglessness of death
Our speech attempts to caress
Some reason of what is left

But all there is is “the end”
Nothing, no reason at all
Off we evap’rate to spend
Eternity: a great pall

Absence creates our longing
Selfishly we demand more
To Finite we’re belonging
Each moment we have’s a score

So enjoy all of your grief
Though in life it’s no relief

American Horror
Dismay, despair and pain
Covered by cheap desire
Simulacrum of gain

A gift to display
In my diligence

Helpful when I crashed my car, worked well with my insurance and threw in some unrelated dent removals without any cost. The owner was quite helpful and (god forbid) I will use him next time body needs work.
