What Price Indulgence

A sugar haze is sweeping the nation;

tastes so good there’s no realization


The perils of sweet dispensation

shall manifest evil creation.


This lurid threat said confections pose

is made good in loss of eyes and toes.


Prevention is all but lost on those

who linger in sugarplum repose.

For Now


For Now…

Lil sister spins round in circles

oblivious to her public surroundings.

She is alive in the moment

embracing all that she perceives with open arms.

For now,  she revels in her innocence.

Her sweet little light radiates and it is infectious.

She is completely unaware of the dangers

that await her growing up as a commodity

in a world wrought with exploitation ,

gender inequality and  isms innumerable.

For now,  big sister watches, directs, and looks out for

little sister… she is safe and protected in the womb of family…

For now…
