A Samurai, Neil Armstrong, a Jedi Knight and Tony Robbins. The lives they must host in their hands and in their emails

Full Body Naked Scanner

A Samurai,

Neil Armstrong

a Jedi Knight

and Tony Robbins

were all directed

toward the gate each

ordered to step

through the

naked body scan

strip his self of every


before he entered to

grasp the steering wheel

of one thousand lives

the lives of his family

his ancestry

his indigene

the lives of countrymen

country women

children and diplomats.

the lives of a graduating class on their

study of the Nation's Capitol

the life of a mother

her carry-on

of unconditional love

a beautiful daughter in

all of her romantic sighs

a beloved son

in his life's journey's start.

The lofty attendant.

Iron gilded in silver and nano

shadows of bureaucratic disrespect

lofty attendants

collecting Bic lighters

and eyeballing fluid ounces

have the sway of a social worker

meets rent a cop

today they have the power

tonight they serve

that enchilada casserole

they made once and
now every Thursday

the monotony like

the sound of a metronome

a loud second hand

a casserole pan

a Sam I am

in the frying pan

a ringing phone

a television

and the smell of

that enchilada casserole.

Our lifetime achieving

heroic statures of

our good and our gallant

A Samurai

Neil Armstrong

a Jedi Knight

and Tony Robbins.

the lives they must host

in their hands and in their emails

in their hands and in their care

as they propel across the skies

heaven to heaven

to the throne of God

and back

taking the dreamers

to thier destinies

as destinations web across imaginations

such wondrous possibilities abound

due to the diligence

in honor and in

ultimate responsibility

the arena is waiting for them to strip

The Samurai's face

says nothing.

Neil, searches for his flight pass

Skywalker calculates.

the force of course

is with him as he calculates

what effect the scanner may have

upon his light saber

that he will not

must never

lay vulnerable.

and Tony

smiles understandingly

the affirmations

the affirmations

the absolute positive affirmations

the Samurai

is ordered by attendants

to proceed in

his gallantry

and heroics

but only after

the naked scanner

body search

the attendants were all beheaded.
