Of their time, the goal was set by cruel decree,
Strident air inside the darkness, makeshift home,
The winter birds in their towering cage,
Peering out at all the swagger of green,
Ground level feeding under neon strobe
Where filled yellow taxis and fancy blue suits jingle
Turnstile iciness against the ancient use of this globe.

This is where children dream, dirt and cardboard read more »

The wormhole, paradise, hauls its wave above the injured in my spirit.

His soldiers, with their blistering certainty marching forward with their
cleansed bodies, upright breasts, asses and protruding masculinities,
look down and see before them a naked and lifeless child on the floor.
God, they imagined, placed the infant there as sign, read more »

By Sinan Salaheddin The Associated Press

Baghdad - Four large bombs exploded in mostly Shiite areas of Baghdad today, killing at least 178 people and wounding scores - the deadliest day in the city since the start of the U.S.-Iraqi campaign to pacify the capital two months ago.
U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates called the bombings "horrifying" and accused al-Qaida of being behind them.
In the deadliest of the attacks, a parked car bomb detonated in a crowd of workers at the Sadriyah market in central Baghdad, killing at least 122 people and wounding 148, said Raad Muhsin, an official at Al-Kindi Hospital where the victims were taken. read more »

O! This vessel!
It wants! O! It requests
Bravery within it! As a child
In a storm.

We know terror.
It kills, and it drives our minds
To heart-thrusted vengeance
Of an incident, a day, a moment
Replayed over and over.

Ominous! War is ominous!

O! War! War
Abhors hope! Hates it
Like a field of dancing flowers
And children clad in dreams
Upon their delight.

But peace. read more »


Stand near me fiery dragon,
Stand close by my side,
Witness the oncoming weight.
Fiery dragon come to devour harmony,
Echoing death in your folds,
Shrieking sorrow aloft,
It is time.

Can you sense it?

There! On the horizon!
See her lights rising over the mountains?
Stand near me!
Read her manifesto!

Men live such lies.
They march and rave,
Warring backward, spewing hate.
(It'd have been easier to witness,
But for the slaughter of humankind.) read more »
