Oscar Wilde To Rita Mae Brown

OSCAR WILDE TO RITA MAE BROWN

Rita Mae Brown
please listen to Oscar
Wilde
who spoke
against stalking
creatures wild.

-s shriver-

Footnote:
Oscar Wilde on foxhunting: the unspeakable
in full pursuit of the inedible.
In rural areas of Virginia this barbarism continues,
a blood ‘sport’ in which foxes are torn apart
and horses break their legs.

A Pig’s Ear Kills Dog

A PIG’S EAR KILLS DOG

He lived alone. His best friend

was his Irish Setter.  He bought

a pig’s ear for his dog at Sam’s

Club…. it had been processed

in the meat department with

such a sharp knife that

its razor edge caused his dog

to bleed to death.

Murdered Animal Fur Promoted By Danielle Steel

FUR FLIES

Animals are caught

in leghold traps

with sharp teeth of steel

… their skinned fur

promoted

by Danielle Steel.

It could be a coat

from a dead fox

or mink

or beaver or lynx

*

Footnote:

 Ms Steel
as late as 2009 was
still promoting fur and
animal flesh…  countless

times
*
Footnote:  It is still true
in publishing circles such
as Time Warner and Rupert Murdoch’s
publishing hosues that those who
promote the consumption of animal
flesh, the purchase of furs, the illegal
wars and intelligence agencies promoting
them, copious product placement of fast
food chains and international stores..
are more likely to be published, and that

their publishers for the most part

are not using recycled paper or

nontree alternatives.

INTENSE MAGNETISM

 

His intangible

eyelight’s gaze

can move

my body.

 

His intense

magnetism

can fill my soul.

UNRIPE ACTIONS

 

They’re not sins but

mistakes, learning experiences,

the unripe actions we all take

when we are younger.

 

As plants need sunlight

all beings need love

in order to unfold.

God looks upon sin as a mother

on her baby’s first halting attempts

to walk  -Sathya Sai Baba-

THE BUSINESS OF SLAVERY

 

Uniquely a business

was slavery then….

is slavery now

HORSES AND COWS

 

The cattle rancher
named his horses…
his four legged mammals
who nurse their young….
but never his cows..
also four legged mammals
who nurse their young
and whose milk is stolen
for human babies

LONG JOURNEY

 

It took him many years

to travel from the solar

plexus’ love of power

to his holy heart’s

power to love.

NURSE FOCUS

 

Some nurses see contamination, germs
everywhere. They have more incidence
of sickness among their children
because they focus upon disease,
in all places except the hospital
cafeteria, whose disgraceful offerings
include the cadaverous burgers on which
the staff feed.

 

The passion for ilusory hospital

sterility

has led to the deadly MRSA disease

as germs become stronger and stronger

in reaction to toxic cleaning ingredients.

AWASH IN PURPLE
Everywhere earth

STARRING THE PINE

The morning glory vine
branch by branch
did climb
until her white stars graced
each needle cluster
of the pine

CHINESE CHARITY

It was a record night.
In the several 6 foot high
apartment building dumpsters
there were 7 trapped raccoons.
At midnight, cheerfully and
immediately, a Chinese man

at someones request

immediately lifted
off a mattress someone had
dumped onto a baby one.

ELDER ABUSE

The woman was bragging that

she had assumed control

of her octogenarian father’s

life. He was no longer

going to bed when he pleased,

she said. She had put him

on a routine.

SYMPHONY OF THE SEA

Seawaters have a fizzing
sound in surf ..
Further along they
slap against the piers,
crash against the rocks..
silently slide
in the tide
Above them
sails flap in the wind
lightning cracks
gulls shriek
In the poststorm sky
the wind sings lullabies

FORGIVENESS TRICKLES

Though not gone are the cold icicles
melted are forgiveness’
beginning trickles

GENTLE ROACH
They shrink not from
the approach
of a gentle roach.
On the rights of the small
they will not encroach

*

Footnote:

According to Mary Lou Henley Danny DeVito would not allow anyone to harm the cockroaches on the set of Taxi. She said he convinced her to become vegetarian. A Terry Gross Show , perhaps BobbieWomack, reported that Jimmy Hendrix would never step on a roach. DPB: At my school the cockroaches could distinguish between the killers and the nonkillers, and they knew that they were more likely to be harmed by people standing at a sink than if seated on the commode. Buddhist James Coburn, reported Vegetarian World, would not harm a fly.

INFINITE DESIGNS OF THE DIVINE

Watermelons with alternating
stripes
of forest green and lime
Breadfruit with many hues of
mosaic diamonds
Crimson skinned apples with
constellations of gold stars
Nutbrown coconut husks
Eggplant purples
Opened pomegranates
with seeds not of granite
but juicy rubies hidden
in chambers
Pears of yellow and amber
Violet grapes in clusters
swelling with the sun’s luster

These are not the green
of meat’s gangrene,
the rust red of congealed
animal flesh blood
but the entire color spectrum
visible
only in nonviolent fruit.*

STARRY CONSECRATION

When was His first consecration
of myriad blazing constellations…
glowing stars whose radiance
on silent nights
confers quiet consolation

and draws us gently to

 spiritual concentration
