ISHTAR'S DANCE


by MM

In the rhythm of love she had lost the one,
so she danced down below to regain her man

then lost her ego, too.

Tossed her jewels and kicked off her shoes.
Danced in the face of her demon fear.
Wiped the paint from her eyes, cheeks, and lips.
Danced in the face of her demon greed.
Tore off her blouse, her Aladdin pants.
This the original striptease.
Realized herself the mother of all
as her last veil falls
as demons flee

leaving her to her one
leaving her to breathe new life into her sleeping man
to resurface in spring and dance with all shameless and
naked in the newly green, to grow and grow and understand.

Our Ishtar our Ishtar

our fertile eternal love.


I AM A WHITE AMERICAN MALE


by MM

I am a White American Male of European descent.
I have all the power.
I am responsible for all:

racism sexism
oppression
corruption
rape
injustice
violence
thievery
greed
hunger
poor housing
bureaucracy
and drug & slave trading.
Because I have all the power I now declare that human skin color is no longer to be divided into
Black, Brown, Red, White, & Yellow. It is now to be divided into:
almost Black
nearly Purple
dark Brown
medium Brown
light Brown
any Brown with highlights of Golds, Reds, or Greens.
Beige
or Beige with highlights of Golds, Reds, or Greens.
Olive
Ruddy Red
and Rather Pasty.

Ya got it!?

THE HAND OF GOD


by MM

I felt the hand of God upon me.
It was doing you know what,
and it felt gooooood.
