Wherever they saw it, once apple
The people dropped it, met the atom bomb,
Thinking that the new apple of mankind.
Is against children the atom bomb said
Flew our of windows to the apple;
Of homes, schools, churches, in less than moment.
Cars, Libraries, and Govt. offices. I can wrap up your life
Some burnt it secretly the atom bomb
Not wishing to see I can reduce the thirst
Even traces of it. And hunger of man
People grew without for more than several
Reading it and survival moments.
Was difficult I can yield for generation
Also for the poem; I have seeds.
You walked in
what's a poem doing in the kitchen?
one day in our lifetime
I am becoming a poem,
we'll all know
a man unbecoming.
how closely related
like a poem
we were all .
I must lose life
to each other.
like a song
I must lose life
we'll fight & kill
like a song
as many in our wars
I must spread in the air.
so that not many
like a word
will have that day.
I must pass thru your lips.
( care typographic error: read follg two poems
touch me without my asking god next time
the barber & the photographer you roast a chicken
I hate the camera eye for your housewife
cause he stares me in the eye roast me too.
and asks me do the same each day here
I love the barber's eye I'll be good to her teeth.
picking one or two grey hairs each day here
from my head i am putting my hand
he lets me fall aslepp. into a jackpot
later, shaking my shirt and pulling our
he says thank you come again a hair
and I am seeing
in my poor brother's eyes.

Plants and trees Not for the sea.
fought to see the sun, Not for the sealife
and the skyscrapers won . Sealaws, for man.
Man made freedom his own.
all his miseries his own.
SURVIVAL OF THE SELFISH
man designed his freedom within four strong walls.
disturbing the design of nature. within four strong walls.
all others were limited
freedom freedom freedom. in number by nature's own hands.
man fought for it, killed his own men and enemy's,
and marketed so efficiently,
plotted bombed to get it.
freedom freedom freedom.
nature's other children. at the zoo
they brought it with their life. the animals parade,
and when they lost it all of them,
they never fought for it, one by one.
plotted or bombed to get it. for man, to see.
a thousand eyes watch them
a thousand eye watch them
watching a thousand
the ground which bore me scenes of nature.
now bears my feet wittily grows the great great
and my head always inventions of the mind.
keeps high in the sky, and side by side
unwittily and quietly
grows the unwieldy weeds
SONG'S FOR HEAVEN (IV)
Man has lost much of his sanity
by mostly believing in false and hollow things.
By celebrating a wrong feeling, a wrong thought
which grew later into a wrong faith,
he has smeared his views and blinded himself.
No doubt he has defended evil concepts
and straight away embraced the darkness of the evil.
what is evil, is merely what is of no use to earth
What is evil, has no power or force of its own.
It is men like you and me who give it help to stand up.
We feed it with energy and we fight for it.
We do it because we are ignorant of it.
We do it because we think it benefits us much,
Not caring to know whether it hurts others or the earth.
Nodoubt there is benefit, instant and physically felt,
That accrues from the evil.
But it really is forsaking a chance for eternity
By opting for a transitory bliss.
It is like sex without live.
It cannot last long.
Because you have pledged your immortality
For a mortal and flimsy momentary joy.
Once your thought or action jeopardizes the earth,
The nation, or the society or merely an ignorant or
Innocent fellow human being,
you will be injuring your own future life.
Evil is merely a weed that grows in the farm or garden,
In your heart or mind, as an instinct or thought,
In your intellect or soul as concept or faith,
In the society or nation as an anti – element.
You must stop its growth wherever it grows.
If you fail, your future will fail you.
You are related to your future distant or nearer.
This cleansing process is everyone’s responsibility.
One who fails in it, betrays creation’s intention.
The power to preserve is uniquely man’s.
Preserve congenial things to life of the earth.
It is not difficult to discriminate the good from the bad.
Keep sharp reason to cut the weed.
Keep true love to promote the good.
And use your faculties of the self
For improving the common good for all.
for the bird, up in the sky, swimming in the air.
for the sun or for the moon staying close together with the earth.
for the squirrel up on the tree up by a flight of stairs, up & home.
Is for the wind showering her love upon my face.
and for the wind flowing into the valley fresh and cool,
and pervading my senses.
I lie imprisoned, by the walls of avarice and greed.
The walls of many doors and locks of the human self's
only I am aware of the conflict.
I Lie Imprisoned.
July 4th I see outside
The monkey, and dinosaur, and every beast say July 4th.
"don't touch me" says a girl - culprit, to a cop.
don't ask for my card, this is a country of liberty".
never lasts more than a few moments of vision, for me.
My spirit unassailed,
I wait for its permanence.
for a second, I see god's face appear,
but then, soon I see
the permanent human faces of greed and avarice.
The usual, the familiar, the ugly only remain
left with me.
up in the sky, as a star.
We, are, on waters.
Some on land,
some trying to fly.
miseries still unsaid.
