open.lost .love

(English Tea Rooms Off Manchaca Saturday nights 6-9pm
in the middle of poetry .a most sensitive poem=
HAS ANYONE SEEN MY DOG? Cage open,back door open,dog gone
so we prowl South Austin seeking this small dog.No show
So we continue singing in circle and chanting with smiles
until a man comes to the door with a small dog held close
and two shock waves roll through our artist-one lost,other found
She who sees all life as art,and is protected by vibes of love and service
has her unconditional love unit restored-so we sing some more!
He fell in love with her in Jordan.
He followed her to Texas when she married someone else
Two children later,a divorce(he has been supporting her all this time
She finds a boyfriend(not Hassan).His heart breaks
He asks her to give him one day so he can make her happy
She prays and says "10".What does this mean?(he asks-
10 minutes 10 hours 10 days 10 weeks 10 years?
Nothing !His heart breaks.He flies back to Jordan.
She drives him to the airport
BOOMERANG'S PIES(Australia Day,2012
For 2o years,a Tent Embassy in Canberra
has politely occupied public space
requesting recognition of Aboriginal Land Rights
Next door @a white restaurant,white police push our Prime Minister roughly away
from a peaceful demonstration shouting SHAME!
Who owns language?Who owns land?
"Terrorists!""Land Rights!""SHAME!"
I could not stand and watch the Bouncy Castles,Four-X,Fosters ,Pies,Flags
misrepresent our shared land.
