Dear Poets:

Keep your words simple
like tree, sky or bird.

If I have to use a dictionary,
you're trying too hard...
and you lose me---
and it makes me sad

and I long for the days
when you sat in a wooden
chair at a wooden table
by an open window,
yellow pencil in hand
scribbling on a sheet of
white notebook paper,
a naked light bulb dangling
from a black wire.

I see your profile,
your eager face as you
write those simple words
describing the beauty
that flowed from your
mind to your fingers
and onto the page.

Those words were life,
bread & wine to me:
soul sustenance.
Come back to
who you were

Dear World:

What the fuck is
an environmentalist?  Why are so
many common sense ideas
now falsely defined
by idiots?

Why the horrifyingly asinine urge
to label every person and thing
to fit neatly into someone's
idea of _________.

Political correctness is
destroying the world
and language.

I'm a gardener:  a person who gardens.
I use no poisons:  I care about animals, bugs & my yard.
I'm a human being, not a label
or a political party or an 'ist'.

What is the opposite
of an environmentalist?
A polluter (all of us if we wipe our ass).
A contaminator? (all of us if we use any form of plastic, gas or oil).
A depletist?  REALLY??? Whose idea was THAT word?
It's actually another word for entropy, no?

I have a vagina, a uterus & ovaries,
therefore; I am a woman!  SIMPLE FACT!!!

I am called pro-life.
And the opposite:  pro-death???

Really?  You get my jist?

Stop it!  Just,
