For You!

There comes
Moment like this
To the man
That makes him quiet
Collapsed forever
Without shaking
Anyone's hands
To say good-bye
And with the last
Sunshine
The eyes close
The most beautiful face
Gets cold
Still
Without a smile
This is the end
Of your path
You are out
Of circulation This poem is dedicated to my friend,
Boguslawa Gladkowska, who suddenly died
in Chicago on June 9, 1997

Anne Frank Where! -Anne Cycle Part 1

Anne Frank where are you
Where you are trees grown
Wrens sing larks chant
Wrens chirp, corws crow
Ashes somewhere- spread,
Mixed with soil
Wind blows- you find them in
Amsterdam, Chicago, Jakarta
I feel am lazy. So I make a bowl full
Muesli - pour refreshing, fridged
Milk onto choccie sickled half hollow shells
And crusty com hued flakes-thinking of you
Ye know, I'd chat you up, if you'd have grown to be older
And I travelled in time- I know l'll chat your sis up!

  183.     

the first time was not the last

i was not yet 22
when i walked around
with a bottle of sin
in my long black wool coat
the winter’s in Chicago
were very very cold
and i never thought
of going home
instead I wandered
the isolated streets
and went into
dark murky basements
and sat over heating vents
outside of university buildings
drank my posion and
smoked my shit
on those warm blowing vents
taking away the bite of the cold
i had no direction
and i didn’t care to find one
because i was warm

Chicago Teachers Union To March On Washington In Support Of Travon?

First of all, did not 3 Black teens savagely beat & stomp a kid who is White?

On a Public School Bus no less in Florida while the driver watched the fight?

This innocent 13 year old kid received two black eyes and a fractured hand,

No Al Sharpton, no Jesse Jackson but the march on D.C they helped plan.



Of all indignities, The Chicago Teachers Union is going in unified support,

The Travyon killing but not Black murders in Chicago, they should abort,

Because for every 1 young Martin since that fateful Sanford, Florida day,

Hundreds of Blacks in their city have been shot close to 100 passed away.



Does Al’s, “National Action Network” & Jesse’s, “Rainbow Coalition, ”

Really have a united cause or do they only supply Racist ammunition?

Whereas, this White youth viciously attacked by three older Black teens,

Sparked very little if any outrage by these guys seeking support in green.



Donations to the cause are sought online, in church, in person, at rallies,

Nationally, Blacks killing Blacks in the thousands, the death toll tallies,

The four children of Martin Luther King Jr. also will be hosting as well,

Wondering if the senseless beating by 3 Blacks on 1 White any will tell?



August 21-28, is celebrating 50 years since MLK’s, “I Have A Dream, ”

Would Martin not berate those responsible for killing and beating a teen?

The Chicago Labor Freedom Riders bus trip is merely a slap in the face,

School begins August 26, yet some teachers are absent, what a disgrace.



A mass email sent to the entire Chicago Teachers Union, urges a protest,

Attend the march for foreclosures, the verdict, not students doing their best?

“We are marching for Trayvon, jobs, schools, health care, justice & dignity, ”

Ok, should not these educators begin not in D.C. but their own community?



A Black Cleveland RTA Bus Driver left his seat when a girl spit in his face,

But the Black school bus driver sat on his butt in Florida, what a disgrace,

This driver in Cleveland stood up for his rights and he should be rehired,

Yet the coward in Florida who barely raised his voice needs to be fired.



“Highlights the structural racism in our society, ” the email beseeches as well,

May they be referring to the continued attack on the White teen after he fell?

“Mass incarceration of our youth, ” is another of the Teachers Union concerns,

Possibly they’ll begin by teaching respect is only given after it’s been earned.
