False Premise: Shadorma

FALSE PREMISE

Mountaineers
Each their own mountain
Up and up
Leave behind
All those souls down far below
And each other too

Never Pat A Burning Dog

NEVER PAT A BURNING DOG

Sundry faiths there are
Bickering over the words
Of a single truth

Dug In

DUG IN

“I do not need proof.
My beliefs are strong enough.”
A slippery slope.

Staying Alert

1: ALERT

“Come quickly,” mummy.
“There’s a man at the door with
a bill.” Her reply?

2: DISTRACTED

“Don’t be silly, son.
It’s probably just a duck
who’s wearing a hat.”

A Handful Of Sexualities

A HANDFUL OF SEXUALITIES

Four fingers, one thumb.
Various parts; the same hand.
Words; names; attitudes.
Different, not separate.
Cut one off and all feel pain.

Science

SCIENCE

Often their knowledge
Is simply blind ignorance
In a fancy suit

Soulmate

SOULMATE

You understand me
You accept me as I am
That’s irony, right?

Oh God!

OH GOD!

On the one hand – God
On the other – Religion
While in the between
Lie didactic certainty
And much misunderstanding

Distress Call

DISTRESS CALL

“Come in Number Ninety-one.” she called.
“Come in Number Ninety-one.” she called.
Then she remembered there were only 20 boats
And called, “Number Sixteen, Number Sixteen.
Are you in some kind of trouble?”

It’s Like I Say

IT’S LIKE I SAY

Fogged by assumptions
We assume twenty-twenty
While blind as a bat
