tint tinabulum?

I can’t tell which one I would like best to see in print.    I really love the sepia because it has it’s own special vintage feeling like a scene from primordial times.   However I also really love the blue tint because to me it lends itself more to the frosty chill of the morning.    decisions decisions. 

sunday verses #3

 UNTITLED  4/24/2021

We are living in the time of parables and revelations
choosing sides
retributions
morality plays
we are “everyman” 
we are the evil that haunts our reality
passport economy 
buy and sell 
only if you carry 
the number of the beast 
innocuous as an inoculation 
tremors and terrors
of the soul 
as those who are weak from fear
strike out and seek control 
of the courageous
their souls listing off the coast of truth
drowning in their desperate 
thrashing and gnashing of teeth
marching and clawing
up the mountain of victims
they create
toward heavens inverted hell
fear of a zombie apocalypse
the walking dead 
if we look at the soul
it’s already here.

We consume media
we consume ourselves
we consume everything
humanity’s legacy on earth will be our consumption
we’ve lost too much to turn back now
in the past our consumption was tempered
tempered by 
“out of stock”
“special order” 
“import only” 
cash shortage
but that has changed
online everything is available
all the time
any time
for a price
on credit
with our very own pay pal
we forgot the payback
we forgot the shark will come 
hunting for what is owed
the environment
culture
social
religion
politics
science
all will come hunting
and haunting
enslaving
for what they are owed.

sunday verses #2

WE ARE MEDIA (10/02/2021)

Welcome citizen,
WE are Media.
WE are message.
WE are massage.
WE are information masturbation
That you WILL enjoy.

If you do not believe
                what WE tell you to believe,
And if you do not act on
                what WE tell you to do,
Even though WE show you 
                only what WE believe you need to know,
Even though WE show you
                a heavily redacted, edited, one-sided view,
Even though, when WE do show an alternate view
                it is completely ridiculous, unbalanced and unbelievable,
Then, you are a bad citizen.
A bad and corrupt member of society.
Suited only for OUR censorship.

Dear citizen,
You and WE both know that you, 
A mere individual, 
Are incapable of making an informed decision.
Information is power that WE control for you.
WE simplify the information for you.
You are free only when WE say you are free.
WE have done all the work for you.
You may now bow down and thank US.

You're welcome citizen.
We are Media.

Autumn

If you have followed this blog for a long time you know that I focus more on abstracts than nature shots when posting different photographs.    That is because nature really only interests me about 5 months out of the year.   Primarily October through February.      The spring and summer months I can take it or leave it.   I don’t find nature that inspiring March through September, photographically speaking.    I’m not against it – as I have seen some absolutely stunning photographs from Spring and Summertime – it just isn’t my “thing”.     So since we are into the month of October I’ve decided to post only nature shots this month.   Enjoy.   And for those that love the abstracts – they will be back again.   Oh, and just to clarify; these are not new photos. They are from years past.

Toilet/Potty Poem (10/2021)

Sitting on the toilet in
Solemn contemplation
Staring at the shag rug
Covering the Autumn-chilled tile floor

Faces and shapes emerge
Beasts and people
Both fantastic and frightening
Revealing themselves
Emerging in the trampled fibers
Of bare footed traffic
Before I roll them up
To erase their existence
In the reality of life's washing machine
Like shaking an etch a sketch
Re-setting the tabula rasa of imagination
