Reason

Reason

Propose a toast to valor

welcome marauders of reason,

the condescending scholar,

voices of treason.

Three & a half cheers to freedom-

Shameless praises to the red.

Damn you who see them,

and you, who wish they were dead.

Wave our flag high & free.

Black list our leader.

This country is of thee

& you be the bottom feeder.

You watched a documentary.

You earned tour days.

Convinced them this wasn’t meant for me-

Those are your ways.

Spread steadfast cunning & hate-

Chaos is of the mind

Tranquility you debate.

You’re just wasting time.

Drown in your breath.

Seek knowledge in the pitch.

Wear white to your death-

All banging all bark.

You to I, them to we.

Us to that, this you see?

Of course you don’t understand, you refuse to know.

Why pick clarity over a hard way to go?

Prompt 15: Childhood Dreams

Prompt 15

Prompt 15: Childhood Dreams

When I grow up

I want to write books

sing in a band

be a pastry cook

I’d scribble in a million libretas

jotting down every thought

not skipping a recipe

or anything I was taught

When mommy woke & went for the kitchen

as did my eyes

I’d sit and read the paper-

I was only but 5.

I’ve always dreamt of seeing my work

In books, publications, articles-

Lurk-ing

I have many dreams that remain stashed in my mind

They too shall come to pass given time.
