My Religion is Null by Eli Perez.

True emancipation
fires sweep across this nation
fanatics preach damnation
steal the signs
then say we’re lost
raised fists won’t help the cause
we are bad guests on this planet
Buddha, Christ, prophet Mohammed
try to sew in us good habits
but like dogs who become rabid
we speak with our fangs and claws
that is why this revolution
needs to be about solutions
heart mind soulful evolution
in our made beds we must lie
so free your kindness
shun your blindness
put behind us
history
save the lessons
count your blessings
don’t believe in misery
for all good things that drop below
must first start out above
only one god worth a damn
the one poets call love.

Poem inspired by dancers. Photo is of @hopegronke , and it was taken by @kloverstudio .

Dancer by Eli Perez.

I’m going to be presumptuous
and say I know what it is
to sail through air
be lifted from the ground
by pointed toes and reaching fingers
when what I really mean is
I envy the freedom you must taste
when your body rattles around
inside the beats and rhythms
of musical notes
whipped into calamitous frenzy
or stirred into smooth lyrical conversation
your face drawing up a story
that only your grand jeté
can tell.

Lemmings by Eli Perez.

Ode to a thing that I once had
size of a lunchbox
flimsy tin
place where I kept toy soldiers in
every child is a victim of sin
transform the ages
walk back the sun
why do savages eat their young
shatter their bones
crack open their skulls
feed on their spirits
until they are numb
march them down paved streets
dusty road towns
over the edge
they tumble and drown.

Love by Eli Perez

Some diamonds sit on swollen manicured pinkies
tied to bloated hands and scaly thumbs
folded and set on cherrywood conference tables
centered in mahogany boardrooms
some diamonds lay inside rock walls
in underground crawlspaces
beneath Sierra Leone villages
where miners play Mancala
mind their parents
do their chores
and wait to die
hundreds of meters below packed red-clay earth
some diamonds languish in display cases
catching the fluorescent rays
of layered mall lighting
shone on wistful shoppers
stopping by to weave sparkle into their dime-store dreams
some diamonds are white-purple nebulas
phosphorus and molten carbon beams
poured into the reddest of hearts
advertised as remnants of ancient fears
emotional and spiritual paralyses
that belie a sunset bloom of love so rich
this diamond shatters
and forms the constellations
where hope is born.
