I wrote this after Manny Stepanovich died

Manny Imprisoned in a small body Tethered to a chair Forever pursued by disease Debilitating the body But the mind and heart compensate Oh so very forthright Serene and angelic Peace to you Manny Encumbered no more By a ravaging disease Never allowed to be amongst us again Now free to be a child Run...

Dian Fossey

The Guardian She seeks knowledge To stop the killings Mimes us Scratches her hair Shows submission Studies our culture We are numbered We are Marquesa, Pucker, Digit, Sarah The poachers make a doll in her image Scare the Batwah away They continue to devastate our population Our numbers continue to...

The Dance of Writing

The Dance of Writing Clear the mind of clutter As people ready a dance floor Listen to the rhythm flowing through your body Fingers caress the keys Gliding over them Creating new steps, new dances With a twist and a twirl And an occasional climatic dip The plots and characters swirl To life Leaving...

the affects of racial epithets

Racial Epithets Racial Epithets Vibrate throughout the body Each letter and syllable a scratching nail Etching across the mind Slowly chiseling Whittling away at self-esteem and worth Planting a seed of doubt Nurtured by veiled phrases of ignorance I hear so often The words echo in my mind...
