Holiday

Umbrella
in the sand,
striped-
Colada,
in hand,
Made,
to perfection,
bleached
beach
salty
sea
breezes,
basking
beneath
scorched
sky,
server
stands,
waiting.
nodding,
you
tip,
your
dollar.

Life 101

Greedy Gus
is on the move.
Gathering
disciples,
gullible
graspers,
gaining
nothing.

Towers that fall,
monuments to,
false
idols, of
ethereal
wealth,
that lies,
beyond-
this
ninety nine.

Hollow
hearts
held,
captive.
Meaningless!

Chasing
wind, while
closing,
always
be
closing.

Eyes,
to those,
covered rags,
you pass by
on your
way,
to your
Rolls.

Consumer Nation

Writers write
and
poets see.

Azure
above
and
between-
this
coral, see?

Garnets
glistening-
sun, gleaming.

Blaring
bonanzas-
people
streaming,
suffering,
crying
craving
carelessly –
plundering
this
home,
of dust.

Deliver
us
from
madness,
greed,
lust, that
consumes
this
ball,
of
dust.
