Soar ~ a tanka

silhouettes of truth

accruing value with voices

kindling freedoms

blood soars, sears the same red

for every human’s rights

this human

Can you see this human

With his company sign which says

Bird and Dog Fancier

And all of us on display?

Would you give him any reason

this buttoned dapper coat of slime

to keep us all as exotic trophies

of his fanciness sublime?

I would like to take this nut case

and keep him fed and engaged

but leash his silly obdurate belief

that we love to be owned and caged

friend ~ a decima

How she glowers, my only desire

With blind rage, my sweet blonde seethes

I’m on my knees with plaintive pleas

Dark wicked tales spread by that liar

has pierced her faith with jealous fire

She clings to untruths he’s revealed

My hope is somewhere far off-field

Like running water, she passed me by

Her absence, my empty left side

My fate without her, how easily sealed
