STAND BY YOUR MAN



girls get a raw deal

 it's a mans world
"get over it"



S T A N D  B Y  Y O U R  M A N




  


that's what I told my daughter today
sitting at the bar eating brunch - while she works
at "Insomnia" on Bloor in Toronto - how appropriate
having slept little - she's a soldier
always tired - why?

through the hardware of a bustling crowd
all the modern devices on display
a mixture of truly cosmopolitan men and women
an all so perfect, multi-cultural blend 
obviously very awake and yet, all so pre-occupied
pretending to be normal
appropriate music at just the right volume
this food and drink - good - life is good

looking forward at her in between bites
softening for a moment
in between her ongoing recoil - driven by her craft
staying - on course
it hurts still

she's such a warrior princess
thinking - I was blessed
she's "rising to the occasion" nonetheless

it's a default position - in an ugly tangle
she's grieving the passing of a relationship
and a man who hurt her - her boyfriend of almost a year

that's what I told her - so called "fatherly advice"
shitty deal girl - get with the program

get over it
(from Dad's mouth to mine)









girls are poisoned coming in
at a young age - and I'm part of that

bombarded by weapons of mass construction
victims of our ancestral karma 
all so meticulously choreographed by men
seeds that are planted in misinformation - incubation - masturbation
into numbness - in a routine mission that fails - yet again
 abort - "next" ...

ok, there are always the fruits from a good harvest
and that simple sermon delivered by a good male soul
at Sunday mass - all in good faith 
but it's never enough

women are programmed to give and take
in a pre-meditated ritual
that deceives and destroys

the spirit is compromised and the water becomes contaminated
all part of gods plan?  I'm questioning that tonight

and so dear friends
welcome back to my mishap in the making
 an ongoing exercise in redemption
delivered with hope and optimism

and yet with caution



S T A N D  B Y  Y O U R  M A N






Bonnie and Clyde


it started early - from the banishment of Hildegard Von Bingen
from the church - for writing words
and making music - for speaking up 
to a lost and alone Anne Frank in Amsterdam during WW2
just wondering what is going on here?
the insanity that surrounds the world - what's this?

it surfaces in crimes of passion and broken promises
what happened Daddy?  why does this hurt so much?
why are you so mean?

get over it


self esteem erodes
deviant distractions are devised
in a concocted contingency contagion
bravely bred - in a silent science

returning to our secret place 
a counter-measure that we didn't want to exercise
but have to now ... out of necessity

it continues


the holocaust was just a beginning
in the feminine decomposition - the decay smells rotten - oh btw ...

"do you think i'm pretty?"
rate me on a scale from 1 - 10
on the internet


rate my face




Anne Frank in Amsterdam - 1942



hijabs in high heels - hot
i love Square One - shopping mall - Mississauga
high tension hypocrisy
on any given day

international ramifications
in a history of violence
enough said

ok, it's all about the presentation
it's not about who you are
no, it's not about what you bring to the table
it's not about your feelings, desires or your fears
it's not about your beliefs or your ambitions

none of that









no my dear ... it's all about your faith
in a modern masculine modality that you have invested in
 your destiny - the circus show
 that we are all so entertained by in the media
by the displacement of power, repression and perception
the pasteurized poison
served up clean
and "neat"

in our given - inherited hypocrisy 
embedded in our religion and our philosophy
just "shut - the fuck - up"


just get over it






 you are nothing

you are only worth something ...
if you become something - in my image
and only if you present yourself accordingly

there are rules in place
follow them my dear, and you will be rewarded
break the rules? - and you will be punished
that's how it works


bend over ... you're going to like this







Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo



just do as I say and it will be ok
i know you want it - i know you want to be ah ... loved
so just  - do this

get the girl


"then after you're finished?  we need a hammer
and garbage bags - Home Depot - for the wreckage
you're part of this now"

just do as you're told

 and it will all be ok - trust me


girls are afraid - and so they should be!
of being cast aside by Daddy - yep - how it works
and Mommy who follows Daddy 
because she's told to

punishment hurts
none of us wants that - and yet, here we go again
it's just another night 
in relapse

get me off




Tori Stafford, Michael Rafferty and Terri-Lynn Mclintic


 
just lure her into the car
after school

I want her young - and pretty - 
na, you don't have it in you
to actually do this - to bring me what I want
you don't have the guts

so just do it - bring me what I want
or you don't get that special surprise that I promised you

this happened in my hometown - Woodstock
in 2009 - I lived there as a kid
clueless









Tori was raped and murdered
by a ruptured couple

for those who have little girls
just love them

tell them that they are special and that they are loved

hold them like they are our only hope
for a better world and a better future


for our girls


he doesn't love you - the same way
that you love him













S T A N D  B Y  Y O U R  M A N





"sometimes its hard to be a woman
giving all your love to just one man"

GLOW


mohali/punjab in november
is like late summer in ontario
leaves still on the trees
a warm curry breeze
everywhere

a diwali celebration

homeless dogs, cows everywhere
eating garbage

a whole lot of poor people
we have no idea

India is magic

BABA YAGA


the end of a story
a soft kiss on the forehead
"go to sleep now"

one must never be afraid of the babushka
for she is kind
wise

and quiet
