Midnight Pearls

.                 



                 Shine, midnight pearls!
                 The smoke curls up 
                 in whirls of doom.

                 On the wet sand 
                 my own hand draws 
                 unplanned pierced hearts.

                 Deep blue-black sky
                 I play by rules
                 and sigh despair

                 to lay aside 
                 starry-eyed dreams
                 that hide a sin.

                 Shine, distant stars!
                 through guitars notes,
                 through scars of time.

                  For her first kiss
                  an abyss drains
                  all bliss from me

                  and far away
                  shadows play down
                  their spray of doubts.

                  Opaque pearls, shine!
                  On this fine night, 
                  define my north.

Ice Cream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream


Out in the sun ice cream runs down someone’s sad face Fun will begin once again, when the chin is clean, A few more dimes just in time, will buy nine more cones! Ice cream for all as we sprawl, in the shawl of shade ......................................................................................................................................

goodbye, sweet day

Magenta sky
     shines at twilight
as I ponder
how the sun glows
      though night flows in!

Dusk grows colder. . . 

A lone gull’s cry
has me sighing
       goodbye, sweet day.

Hoss Race

Long shot prospect
named “Reject Hoss”
bedecked with sweat.

He fell to last
‘till he passed gas
so fast, he flew!

He ran with ease.
At Jockey’s  prod,
he squeezed in front!

Forty to one,
odds he won was
pure fun for Hoss.

Breast Cancer

Youthful temptress, aging oracle,
Nymph-like debacle, Gorgon spectacle,
Retreat from retribution’s precipice,
And a transient victory wrought by avarice,
To listen to a parable
Devoid of the empirical.

Several centuries ago in the land of the Saracen,
You were born to a tribe called the Bedouin.
Clad in hijab to protect you from knowledge that is carnal or ecstatic,
Your elders were quite emphatic
In their desire to imbue you with virtue
In languages derived from Aramaic.
Rules were enforced by the prevailing patriarchy,
Who were keenly aware of lust in the presence of your budding sexuality.

Nature’s sculpting of your cherubic form 
Into a Circe with Djim-curved breasts
Straining against material meant to cocoon a figure otherwise ethereal,
Did little to maintain the moral norm.
Codes of the West and codes of the East,
Dictated restriction or punishment for unleashing a Beast
Called unrestrained passion, robbing Man of reason,
Paralyzing Zeus with snake-like tendrils spewing poison and hissin’,
Only the strength of family kept you safe from the abyss
And the sword of Perseus,
Albeit temporarily.

In the ensuing years
Your inevitable rebellion as an uncontrollable hellion,
Sent you scurrying in a soulless desert from the puritanical to the heretical,
Falling for a secular encyclical
Promoting the hype of the perfect male archetype.
The rush of intellect combined with tingling nerves and tissue erect,
Anesthetized your senses
And blinded you to fragile mental fences,
Especially your own…

Now, in your twilight years,
Forced to face your deepest fears,
You gaze into a mirror,
To inspect Aphrodite with a wrinkled body all-a-quiver,
Sagging breasts with shriveled aureoles publicly wrapped in fashionable frills-
Fatty tissue feted by paramours over whom you once held sway,
Rose-tinted nipples electrically bonded to Venus’ mound in her heyday,
Now drooped untouched below a proud visage lined with pain
And experience in surviving life’s interference.

As you caress your naked loneliness,
And pause to touch a cancerous mass,
In life-giving organs soon to be disfigured by modern medicine,
In its quest to heal every lesion,
Your heart yearns for a cloak to shield your fading womanhood.
But inevitably you muster the strength,
To find your own identity and carry on the fight,
To any length, even to death’s finality,
For you are now fearless
And ready to show your true beauty and grace in the face of adversity.

Windows to the Soul

Open your mind
you will find that
the world is one

Open your eyes
see how lies fly
all in plain sight

Open your ears
lay the fears down
trust only God

Open your heart
life's not art, it
changes daily
