  57.     

romancing the poverty of other people

you look at the poverty of other people
romancing it like a metaphor in your poetry
the color of a man's unwashed shirt with mud
and blood, dried sweat,
the sound of a hungry baby like the sound
of thunder coming from the breasts of mountains
the ignorant woman like a beautiful native naked
and bathing in the river and rising like a famous nude painting
their poverty to the rhythm of some blues
the colors in brown, and black and violet and scarlet
the trembling hands and biting lips and blank stares
the blackest background ever
to a future as bleak as ember
to a poverty hopeless as ever.

  58.     

Rousseau Goes Zen

Give me back my poverty
Said Jean Jacques drifting through the trees
Possessions are not liberty
Give me back my poverty
This myth of private property
Will bring the species to its knees
Give me back my poverty
Said Jean Jacques drifting through the trees

The Smell

Poverty exudes odors
Desperation takes on hues
Uncertainty loudly clamours
Homeless move about
In a cacophony of sound
Illness of the street people
Odors abound
Fear of future flattens
Death of innocence cries loud
Odors of the madness
Smell of poverty abounds
Senses acutely caressing
Filth of necessities sins
Odors changing futures
Individuals meld in sound
Poverty exudes odors
Ignorance carries loud
Smell of desperation
No matter the flattened feelings
Horror of distorted senses
Keeps the homeless
In storms
Odors abound

  60.     

Generous Poverty

Generous Poverty -
rebellion of the spirit
against selfishness and greed.
Every selfless donation
replacing the thinning blanket of material security
with a tightly woven spiritual cloak
of right and wrong.
Generous poverty -
Acknowledging mans equality
comes from the shared miracle of life,
not differing lifestyles.
Personal hardship and challenge
are not the cost of generosity,
but the unrequested reward of
Life’s poverty.
