Poem: Illusioned

Wrapping ourselves in a flag of patriotism
We lose sight of what it means to be
An American when the myth of us is
Wrapped up in the illusion of individuals
Which is ironic since e pluribus unum
Strength comes from interdependency
Weakness comes from being divided
And divided we are on superficial issues

Poem: Church Point

On the riverfront down at church point
There’s music rising up from the river
Where the gathered congregants
Drink shitty beer and talk of Marx
Or whose going to do what
With all their big plans soaring
Towards an uncaring god
