New Poem

for those of you aren't poets, this poem is about my personal pain, my heart represents the uranium which was mined from the Arizona mountains and how it has contaminated the Colorado River, where most of the poisen lays underneath the river, the environmentalist says it's better to leave the uranium alone because if you try to remove it, it will only cause more pollution, so the mud on top of it protects the river, where with time, becomes reburied again -


River Bed
by Charlie Ballard

Once buried deep inside the 4 sacred mountains,
blackened by granite and time,
now seeps down the crest of blue canyon walls,
unearthed and unprotected

the river, not having
a choice in your discord,
catches you with her bossum,
gently laying you back to sleep
