Crap from Walfart

​Hey Mister! Let me give you my dollar so I can feed my family the sewage you sell under the guise of low prices.

I don’t know that forcing entire families in other countries to work for peanuts to produce the shit you’re hawking is a low price.

I’m pretty sure that when your employees hold food drives for one another because even they can’t afford your manure, is a low price.

I don’t mean to sound contrary, but hearing your employees stories on gofundme pages while they die in your aisles is not conducive to low prices.

I congratulate you on selling the American dream, made in Afghanistan, Bangladesh  or China, from behind the smoke and mirrors. They don’t even realize they are the goods you’re selling off to the lowest bidder. That takes marketing skills to peddle that crapola.

Aleppo, Syria

Omran Daqneesh
There is a little child in Aleppo born
Exploding waves of violent storm
Raging fires silently call harm
Yet the tiny child raises no alarm.
Ali Daqneesh
This is our child. Our daughter or our son
Our children have now become only one
Innocence bombed in a dawn of mourning
We heard the cries, refused the warnings.
Now we witness our barren crops dead
Help them! Somebody!
We are not what we said.

They are speaking

unlock

Tornadic bursts of clarity that light the path so long hidden

Lightning flashes of dervish danced love now bidden

The dialect is moving my feet forward, but

the roots had to reach ancestral proportions

to stretch closer to the stars without distortion.

Outreached hands grip, grasp, climb the galaxies

as Terraria celebrates the gateway rendered of fallacies

Although precarious in balance, it’s to advantage giv’n

that tornadic bursts of clarity pursue the debris forgiven

A visit from Atropos

The time of despair has lost its hold, refusing shaded respite

The grief of absence embalming heart, releasing darkness desperate

Returning the prayers of the wandering spirit, sealed breast and bone

Sending back the wilderness, refusing pleas to roam

The earth collects the debt it’s owed without a loss of haste

Slinking roots memorializing while the stolen life displaced

The plaque above the anchored gypsy reads:

“None are ever lost when their courage is found in deeds.”
