I believe in peace and love Earth below and sky above, Truly.   But I would like to stray today And in the most loving way, Say fuck you!   Heartless thieves and shameless too As if the earth belonged to you! So greedy.   You casually seek to sweep aside Th...

White-throated Sparrow
I saw you razoring your bill this morning, Using the budding branch of a maple tree As your whetstone. I have some questions: Ø   Does doing that give your sunflower seed a maple-y delicious flavor? Ø   Do you suffer when the weather is cold and wet? Ø   Do...

Walking with the President
I would like to take the president for a long walk in the
woods. We would climb humble hills and majestic mountains, We would cross small steams, steaming in the morning
