Raccoons are not too intoxicated to tear down a building

photo 1

We are organizing in mass to be a force that will be destroyed before the Enemy even knows we are there.  Who aroused the riot of Runt Raccoons everywhere?  Who pushed us to stick our tongues in cracks in the system?

The Bosses we can’t get off our backs.  The bang bang and ratatatat of police militarization.  The War on Drugs.  The rejection of Sincerity, the rejection of Love.  The abuse of…

Internet Poetry, affordable passion

Internet Poetry, affordable passion

I don’t feel creative clicking and scrolling
Passion cannot be afforded by everyone
Sometimes Freedom won’t feel real unless it’s stolen
The single mother working 50 hours a week to support 5 children
Folks who have the usual explosives pointed at the vicinity of their family’s heads
The millionaires who are not yet millionaires
Financial dreams scramble over each other’s bodies like angry spiders…

TWO POEMS BY DIANNA DRAGONETTI

alternativeliterature:

Once,

while carelessly
brandishing a
small pocketknife

a bird in flight
inadvertently
on its breast

in the area
just below
its stately beak
and gleaming eyes,

scarlet spreading
amidst
copper-colored
plumage

And it bled for days.

Weeding out the thorns from #NewSincerity

“Airports see more sincere kisses than wedding halls. The walls of hospitals have heard more prayers than the walls of churches.”

-Unknown

picture001

The wedding bells ring from under glass stained thorn bushes.  Unpopular Messiah turns wine into water.  His ratings drop in the polls.  The etymology of Love was found to be chemical and not language oriented.  I like the way your pheromones make me sleepy.…

Jazz & the Beat Generation

from On The Road –  “They ate voraciously as Dean [Neal Cassady], sandwich in hand, stood bowed and jumping before the big phonograph, listening to a wild bop record I had just bought called “The Hunt,” with Dexter Gordon and Wardell Gray blowing their tops before a screaming audience that gave the record fantastic frenzied volume.”…

Terpischore’s Atrium with Jeremiah Walton

3.The most striking aspect about your poems is their exploration of the jagged, raw, and scarred realms of language and human experience, as opposed to the prim manicured composition many of the poets strive for. Poems such as ‘Campfire Psalms of the Lost and Angry ’,‘ Fearful 3 and ‘Where I found God’ are beautiful and unique precisely because of their haunting imagery, forceful language and a…
