An Isolating Event (a poetic endeavor)

An Isolating Event

            by Joel Howard

 

sinking blue

skies to mud and Anarchy, a

convergence  

of downcast souls, where  

lame wishes so pure bay bereft

at doors front back right left;

 

yet down further fall

the heavens already deep-sunken,

to briny-deep darkness,

            where dreams   

ever rest at nature’s  

insistent pall.

 

Today heed anew the taunting and

bottomless echo, a promise to re-

emerge, to again bloom ‘neath

parting clouds, leaving

old orders  – so very

rough-spirited and trying  –  to decay,

knowing the sun rises (at nature’s behest)

somewhere beyond

this paralyzing wave’s crest.

Transgender Woman Attacked

This is the kind of crap that results from Trump, Pence, et al, denigrating transgender citizens. Their general hostility toward the entire LGBTQ community is unacceptable. They own this shit. Source: Dallas police investigating vicious ‘mob’ attack of transgender woman caught on video – ABC News
