Karmic Ruin

Mothers beware
Your maternal sins
Bide their time
As sons grow into men
The role of dutiful son;
the singular fatherly inheritance
His masculinity a life long performance
Of karmic violence
Without mirrors
There can be no reflection
No understanding
No compassion
Bitterness unleashed
On the old frail woman
Bewildered and hurt
Unable to challenge or run
She can only sit and absorb
The volcanic eruption
He cannot see
Ageing insists
The woman before him
Be understood differently
Without memories
She is not the same
Each sunrise is new
What happened in the past
Is the past
To understand this
Is to let go of the ruin
And forgive


Karma’s Got Teeth

The words fly around in whispers 
wild sharp and whipping 
feeding the negative energy 
of the nasty and petty. 

They believe their arrogance 
shields them from being heard
accountability, shame.

What makes them so ravenous?
Does the answer lie in human nature
or societal pressure, constructed?
Both fine excuses, but that’s it

For anyone not living in the dark
the light shines clearly
exposing the naivety and
artlessness of their folly.

The certainty
karma’s got teeth.
