Remember when we did as we pleased?
Now we’re wrinkled, gray, and diseased
With Rage that crushes any caring heart,
And drops us low to our knees—
There is no succor or understanding
For respite or for relief for any parents’ pleas.
Why do we think ourselves
Into such boxes of darkness
Into that snare of ever wrong turns?
To put down hard roots
Into a never loved land,
Grasping, with our heart that burns—
Another lost kite strung over a high tree,
Another lost thing we swore to safe keep—
Living a clueless life beyond what we hear or see;
As now I lay me down to sleep?

–Amberly Alexis Barnett’s body was found in an undisclosed location early Saturday morning hours after authorities began searching for the 11-year-old, who was last seen at her aunt’s house in Mt. Vernon, Ala.

Make A Difference

Of course
I know I’m crazy—
It comes as no surprise:
Some say it’s in my dancing,
You claim it’s in my eyes.
Certainly
The heats now all back.
How many merlot glasses
Will put off my next fatal heart attack?
Whatever:
I’m employee #1 engaged!
Boss Lady don’t give a fig about abused consultants:
Who’s next to get pure and outraged?
I’m sure
The bottom line won’t budge:
What’s in your action plan?
Sadie is preactively actively dying—
Time to earn my token as your Angel man.
