of a blurring boundary.
Revealing hints of the diversity underneath
and of the death we impose.

where men were reasonable and tall,
Where people knew me by who my grandfather was, and his, and his.
Where farmers didn’t block views with trees,
To see at a glance from the kitchen window
How the corn was doing, the soybeans.

Upon first glance, Dionysiou Aeropagitou street

Flanked on one side by antique looking houses
bustling with life and music wafting from a roving cellist

As it trickles, trickles, trickles down
Washing away the grime and stain
Appeasing the thirsty ground.

Dead Horse

by The Cardinal

dead horseBetter here to cease than the knackers yard
A wild hearted beast that lived fast and died hard.

Better to have fallen than led away to be rendered
To have died on the hoof than gone lame and surrendered.

with silicon brains, traces and wires.

Smokestack Hypnosis

Frothy foam floating atop steaming chemical vats
Boils, becoming warm white clouds
Climbing up cold concrete columns,
And billowing forth from icy smoke stacks.

The Narrative of the Earth’s Revenge

by soad88

“Why do you allow a hateful and ignorant creation to desecrate my soil?”

“Though most of man is evil, a small group holds unto truth.”

“But why let them commit such evils and walk free?”

“They do not walk for long and their youth is limited.”

“Let me have my vengeance upon man.”

“So you shall have it so. For when their phase is done”
