sunset tunnel


Bridge

sunset tunnel

end of world
planned pre-extinction
puzzled driver won’t return

no more ginger-filled
usual morning cup
postponed indefinitely

tears burned
evening light
white-fronted entryways

pleasure
slowly spilling
down ragging river

stretched pathway
leads to invariable demise
sunset tunnel

Children in Their Natural Wild State

three cultural revolutionary tanka

highest dimensions
souls reawakened
flourishing forces
veil between worlds uplifted
revolutionary wave

insurgent powers
on catastrophic courses
charge into the fray
take advantage of the weak
holding only humble hope

sensory rebirth
down to earth metaphysics
new world envisioned
cultural independence
streaming literary works

behold no evil


No Evil by Maude McDonald ©

behold no evil

overconfidence
strictly prohibited acts
revolting habits
contumeliious rudeness
count each monkey eye:
regard no abominations
behold no evil
emmunciate no offense
better commandments
