PANDEMIC!!

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 8:51 pm

A grey cloud slowly

emerging

the numbers

and changes

by the hour surging

states of emergency

closing schools

people over buying

with no control

no rules

filling carts with

no sense of what

they truly need

conveniently forgetting

that they actually

have a whole house

to feed instead they

cave to impulsive greed

seasons cancelled

no Top-Seed

more being tested

at increasing speed

hoping this whole thing

does not cultivate like

a planted seed

with the faith that

healthcare can take the

lead

to put an eventual

stop

to this worldwide

bleed.

Such Times

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 10:36 pm

(written weeks before Corona Virus)

Vibes are just going

crazy these days

so many directions

of so many ideas

of so many opinions

of so many views

going in extremely

opposite ways

so that so many

who were friends

for so many years

now are fighting

now insulting

immersed in anger

shedding tears

no one agreeing

or at least

mutually seeing

that what should be

important is the

common wellbeing

that used to be referred

to as “the common good”

while now so many say

“not in my neighborhood”

while knowing perfectly well

that are not doing the best

that they could

that are not doing what they

rightfully should

as if we were back

to when so many wore a

cowardly white hood

so many are toppling over

where humanity

unity

understanding

and tolerance

all formed a mutual

community

and all honorably

once stood.

My Story

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 8:01 pm

Born in a suburb

when suburban life

was growing

in a suburban house on

a grassy hill

my mother had to hide us

away without my sister

and I and especially my

threatening father knowing.

 

Raised in a small city

we walked to school

we walked to local parks

we played ball with friends

we bought sodas and candy

at a local corner store

we crossed Main Street alone

breaking my mother’s

long given rule.

 

Graduating

then moving out

getting married and

moving south

my first job

teaching music

taught me what life

was really about.

 

Having a baby

in all his glory

we moved back north

when a new millennium

was moving forth

now having a bigger family

my wife and I both

teaching locally

which is where things

presently and

pleasantly stand

in my every growing

lifelong

story.
