Frozen

No-man’s land
is where
the past
and the future
intersect
empty of regret
ambition
or superstition
with no time
to reflect
or postulate
where reality
co-exists
with myths
virtue and
the indecency
of doubt
and where
happiness
hides
from sadness.
in solitude.

Zionist Blues

They say
your opinion matters
in leftover
moments between
pictures
of a lounge suite
replaced
by a sedan speeding
along
an empty highway
followed
by the biased world
news
with the hypocritical
views
a mass school shooting
and finally
a black man shot dead
by police
while resisting arrest
armed
with a water pistol.
