Latest Release











Say Anything
about Westside Story
and their similarities to
Romeo and Juliet
and we find that

Americas Sweethearts
Love Actually

when potholes are placed
in our paths

by the Montagues
the Capulets
and the Sylvia Plaths
Maybe I love this Iraqi girl

and it's forbidden
by the Capitalists
and the Baathists
Or I love this African American girl
and it's forbidden
by the Methodist Episcopals
and the Southern Baptists

Or that Buddhist chick
tells us "what's love got to do with it"
but I love you more

now that society has screwed with it
I just want to see
What  Dreams May Come
and If you’ll love me like its the last time
as I spit this rhythmically over drums
John and Paul Said
money Can’t Buy Me Love
and Patrick Dempsey
is Enchanted by

Meredith Grey’s Anatomy
but she’s got daddy issues

and she won’t swim back
after he has a moment but loses
George loses both when he chooses
so poems have fallen

its crime now when Jack comes calling 
with his artistic nudes
the dudes get more metro
Juliet has an attitude
I wish this fairy tale was retro
if you really love something you let go?

  6. I really like the mixture of past and present in this piece. The Love of earlier times was amazing we as society have let its meaning slip away. I also really like the fact that because society doesn't want to accept it makes you want to fight for it even more! Another Good One Theron!

  7. Yes it can cause you to Die Hard
    And be a Lethal Weapon in you yard
    But Serendipity could come your way
    Although you might get it at Porky's the next day
    Major League is the heights you want
    Or since White Men Can't Jump you could taunt
    Of course too much and a Beverly Hills Cop could hunt you down
    They could also draw First Blood making you frown
    Definitley, Maybe you could remain
    Unless like The Dream Team you are insane
    Ok before I go on forever
    Just want to say your write it quite clever

  8. Love so many of the movies you mentioned. There's nothing new under the sun...we're all just trying to create our own expressions the same feeling...

The 5 People Who Make Life Heaven

They listen when you need to talk Talk when you need to listen They know your darkness Let you know theirs Without judgement and expectation You can talk to them about how you see things They don't get angry or anxious when you disagree Trust you enough to say what they really think Read tweets and novels Never make you beg or grovel Won't allow it Remind you that you're better than that Lay some of their burden on you Let you behind their wall Feel welcome behind yours You feel each other with heart and mind Even if you don't explain yourself  They get you You get them These are the ones that make life worth living Make you love to be alive Reflect you to you Teach and learn Some days the lead singer Some days the band These are the ones You can count on one hand (c) Ron Kennedy 

Poetry Tree

I saw no birds grieve No fallen leaves No branches on the ground None made a sound It wasn’t rotten It didn’t die in a storm Capitalism came In its progress form To take one of my last  Best refuges from me I may be the only one who noticed The death of my poetry tree.
