Three Bird Poems

THREE BIRD POEMS

They made a bird park
with a high fence
and a sign
at the gate
“Must be able
to fly this high…”

The crow
was lit
on the
Moon side.

Birds lined up
on the top of the wall
watching the wingless
down below.

Theater Workers fight for fair wages. (Repost

September 1, 2015

Musea Readers, For many months I’ve suggested to The Dissident Rag on facebook, that they include theater workers in their discussion of low wage workers. Today 8/31/15 they did, by reposting the blog entry below.

Thanks to them, and may it force Hollywood to be a part of the low wage debate!

Personally, I worked at the Inwood Theater in Dallas from 1990-2014. The last years it was owned by billionaire Mark Cuban. His policy was the same as all theater policies towards workers. Lowest wages, few if any full time workers – which would eliminate most benefits, etc. etc.

There is no reason for the film industry to be just about the only industry to get away with this – specially when Hollywood goes out of it’s way to brag about how many millions they made in box office every week. See link for more.

4 Poems with an Animal Theme

Poems (with an animal theme)

the little green moth
circles and circles
here and there
across the garden
I see what you’re after
I watch and watch
he’s ever closer
he knows it too
he’s just about there
and lands in a clump of
small yellow blossoms.

Mother Goose
was pedestrian
Mother Peacock
was uptown

How to be an Owl”

lesson 1 Head turning
lesson 2 seeing in the dark

Readymade

the nightingale who
with heart rendering voice…
