Faith Family Friends (a commercial piece)

to have Faith
dark doubt does not
exist

With Family
love is
unquestionable

in Friends
comfort is
just a hug away

At peace is the heart
that has found
these three

love is the bond
that ties the
family

unbreakable diamonds
the beauty of
friends

as certain as the
rising sun
faith must be

when love seems lost
like car keys to a
forgetful mind

doubtless unquestionable is the
love in faith family and friends
you will find

wake up: emergency

we the people
us people
you people
are not looking for a hand out
wanting something for nothing
us forgotten people
only remembered in statistics
and unicef campaigns asking for donations instead of candy on halloween

we the people
ranging from shades of dark to light
photoshopped bright on cosmo covers
and darkened in GOP fear commercials
exaggerated in welfare lines
cheese lines savages living wildly
in urban ghettos committing crimes
that’s how you view us

we the people
the offspring of immigrants
forced bondage and held captive
like girls being held by old cartel pimps
forced to dance in private, no living out by the sea
no husband or children no family
just work, work work
making profit for free

we the people sleeping like tired
airline pilots on third flight of the day
must wake soon before it’s too late
before we’ve crashed completely into hidden
icebergs without enough life boats and jackets for us all
women and children aren’t first just the wealthy and
certain pedigree pets
Oh say can you see what’s happening to us?
duck duck goose untie that fucking noose from around your neck
and wake up!
this is an emergency on planet earth

Moon (032814)

he didn’t just fall from the sky
like some dying comet or broken
object from a USSR
satellite rotating and revolving around our
distant solar system
some things are
stranger than fiction

but there was something about his
accent and his attention to detail that
intrigued me
made me wanna
touch his skin poke and dig into
him a little more as if he were
out of this world

curious i am for the
desire to peer open and 
take a peek inside through telescopic eyes
seeing what i can find
maybe a touch similar to mine but
never does the agar plate reveal such
culture as those within my fantasy yielding mind

i humor myself with thoughts that
shine bright and twinkle like
stars in the night’s sky
cliche cliche cliche
moon from above offers just enough light
assuring me this moment is real
i’m here and here’s the deal

objects appear closer than they seem
so i refrain from believing this dream
this moment
this situation
this chance that some
moon being has landed his way into my life
   
“i’m a recovering undercover over lover”

12 Angry Nurses and Satan

Could not hold me back from seeing the sunshine again. 

The thoughts and prayers of my friends.
Those who spend their days being good Catholics, jumping from pews doing that Blues Brothers shit, I salute and thank you. 

In this living life of wars, no judging my views, cause our Gods find sacred that vow. 

Get up, get out, and do something...just try and avoid the things that can cause a night mare of your dreams. 

Get up get out and get something....tomorrow's not promised; pissing on yourself in open pajamas.

Get up get out and be something...this ain't no dress rehearsal man you can't keep doing that same shit over and over again.

So here it is a reminder a photograph to remember.
I was 20 minutes from the morgue...I'm just saying...evaluate what YOU'RE living for.

Thanks again to all those from the Port to the A and places in between that prayed for me, that thought of me, that kept me. 

I am forever grateful and and I am forever changed...still recovering, but my thought's are not the same.
