Do I see clearly?

The Culture Wars with a

new ugly face?

I’m confused,

because my rose colored glasses

once showed

me visions

of global love and

self acceptances

of free individuals.



their lens cracked,


Along with dreams of unity

and mutual respect,

Lying in the dirt,

the world enraptured.




I currently have an e-book of poetry being sold for under a dollar for 99 cents,“Conflicts”.

Sales go to the support of my poetry and limited profit liability company, Stone Temple Micro-Finance and Research, L3C.
