Face to face at last

Perpetual gaze is held

No words are spoken

Hands reaching out with purpose

You grab the last cookie first

The Evening Comes



                              The evening comes
                              soothing neighbors' screams and rage
                              through apartment's wall
                                Rhythmic headboard hits and hits 
                                the reconciliation

Love And Laughter

Your smile blends with mine
as our laughter cheers the clouds.
Our days sunny be
long as we look for the light-
leave the darkness far behind.

Poor Foghorn

My big ol' rooster,
thought he was cock of the walk...
Until....Red, my hen 
ended it all today with 
a flogging and loud squawk!..

Strange Love

Why do I love you?
When I look into your face
Your teeth are too big,
That nose is extremely long.
Yet all I want in a dog.

Ill-Fated Coin Flip

They could not decide,
so they flipped a quarter coin.
Terry won, Bob lost.
Bob had to date ugly Sue.
Terry had to date her too.

My first poem you see
about how sweet I can be.
See my pretty dress?
Man I want to make a mess.
How'll I do it, can you guess?

One Scene From One Movie

Wife yells out the door
"don't forget the cannoli
'Alright, already!'
another day on the job
(gotta go murder some guy)

Blame It On the Reindeer

Just last year I asked Santa to bring me three things: a good GPS device, dance music CD’s, and a sexy negligee. On Christmas I woke to find just one ornament hanging from my tree - an apology attached giving this explanation: Rudolph got sick, so I needed your GPS. Dancer and Prancer broke open your CD’s, and that Vixen stole your nightie!

lack of oxygen floating hearts or jumbled thoughts
they labeled it love
combined it with red and white cupid and his curved arrow

See that ‘Been-There-Done-That’ sign?

“Big Jack’s Chevrolet!”
That’s Big Jack talking his cars
He is pathetic!
Jack has a hyena voice
Uses hands to make a point

It’s one of two things –
He’s too tight to pay a pro
(thinks he’s just as good)
Or    he loves to see himself
Big Jack    on TELEVISION!

Sleepy Trees

The trees are yawning,
carelessly shedding their clothes
for sweet winter sleep
Like spoiled children who know well
daddy will clean up their mess...

It Was Nothing PERSONAL, PC

She whimpers and whirs
She banters and she b****es
Tired of my abuse
She’s exacting her revenge
This may be my last message…

Look! She just censored my second line!

The flying wheel spins,
screams of kids terrify me...
I hope they are fine.

I hope they are fine,
with hair sticking out like wheat...
" Stop that flying wheel!" I scream.

Valentine O' Mine

Those entrancing eyes

   Gaze longingly into mine

      What is her desire

         Softly purring in my ear

            (Inscrutable cat o' mine!)
