Sequel to the poem "eviction notes." Special thanks to Scott Harben, photographer for allowing me to showcase his indescribable metal work.
sitting here wondering about the unalienable shortness of life,
how it all can be snatched away so quickly,
is no different;
for being used by another human
is liken to one whose soul is equal
to the worth of one kernel of
and the moisture of compassion
is now purposed
not to nourish,
but to punish thus leaving
denied seed equal opportunity
to find a place to cast its root
instead. . .
the denial of self determination
is now the King oppressor, the one
who sits at the head of the scavengers table
and feasts of promised bounty
are left to the hovering crows
who scrap and steal away
a thing unrecognizable. . .
dry bones of a once-committed love.

|I loved the way you structered and constructed this poem. It has the subtlety of passing cloud and the majesty of a rising wave. I liked the words you chose to describe it and to narrate it, you are a skilled wordsmith and thats something I can apreciate.
