This is a political satire rant of a poem.
No white cis gendered men need apply

No black macho men either

No republican gay people apply

you’re not even alive

You know what only women allowed here

No matter how you identify

No natural health anti vaccers

No climate deniers

That means don’t question reality

in case I needed to clarify

No Israel defenders
No American veterans

and no police wives

no none of you need apply

girls and boys separate

starting early now

protect the girls from the patriarchal state

Black and whites separate

They’ll let you out when the time is right

Whenever they need some tension
To cause a fight

Any one that questions this

sit down and be quiet

No Christians

No Jews

No Amish

no preachers
and no home schooled teachers

No God fearing philosophical people here
No libertarian politics here
You blasphemers, hate mongers and stoners
line up to be stoned

 

no cisgendered white men apply
no no cisgendered men need apply

Saw you standing there

you looked like you might be

trapped in some bored reality

that had you so shaken

that you just had to be idle

I saw you anger there

behind your eyes that feel deeper

deeper than you’ll ever let me know

those eyes that look deeper

deeper than we’ll ever go

I saw you see my words

and then look away

when your mind runs and hides

with the long list of reasons

and restraints ,priorities

and sadness and pride

I saw you bring down the wall

just for a second so I could see

see you dancing and see you sing
see you happy

and pretending you could be free
I saw you making love

making love to me

I saw that brick you handed me
to put in to places

diverse and far apart
to begin a wall around and around my heart
I saw that one too

something to remind me
and to remember you

Because I saw the wall
between us
where we can both see

but can never really touch

over this chasm

that is filled with only so much
but never enough

no never close enough

I saw you wanting

and wanton I saw you

I saw you so close
but you are always far away

 

Like Lightning

I’ll touch you

I’ll breath you

I’ll numb you
I’ll shock you

dance with me
and sing your tired songs
the way you do
when you’re defenses are gone
I want to make you feel

the way I do when you around
the way my body feels at your sound

Like lightning
I’ll touch you

I’ll stop you

I’ll light you
and excite you

I’ll make you love the lightning

the way I see the storm

and the way I hide in the storm
be my arms and hold me

be my breath and breathe deep

Dance with me
the way you do

when no one sees

This storm we are in

it sometimes has got to breathe

I’ll touch you

I’ll breath you

I’ll shock you

I’ll need you
I’ll excite you

I’ll make you want the lightning

Missing Words

We were word people

and that is how we flew

rhyme taking us above

to things unknown

yet we could get to

we were word people

and not the wasted type

nothing spilling on the floor

and wasting space and air

not the kind that makes the head ache

or the soul long for solace

not the kind that wears

yeah we were word people

Now it all that is unsaid

unheard
misunderstood

and unread

too much to say
gets lost in the silence

and the time that passes

killing this word person
