Yesterday,
Yes. May, 1956,
The liquid black gold formed the beginning of greatness
In Oloibiri and later in the entire Niger Delta communities.
Today, we are drinking from the rivers polluted by oil spillage,
Many of us regret being a mortal in our ancestral homes,
Because...Read More

Liquid Shelter

I toss fire down your throat
pour you your bullet, goblet to gullet

glass-jacketed explosions 
line my wall like church organ flues
ablution for absolution from desperation 
libation-liberations for exaggerated exhilarations
bottled fevers for believers

kneel your mind
choose your raptures

you’ve come to my altar
now your...Read More

Premium Member Summer Shower
Awash her hair in honeysuckle suds,
As rain with pleasure falls from puffy clouds, 
Over dye — pink and gray sans sun, pert buds.
Youth’s effervescent scent of rain so loud —
The sunflowers asleep...June laughs out loud.
A summer’s stream of joyful tears...Read More

The Tunnel Vision
You can keep swinging in your smile
as your eyes see through the cylinder only
where the flowers radiate the scent
where the leaves wait for the rustle
of the fondling wind
where stars wait for the music
of the magical light peaks
where the blue sky...Read More

WEATHER   FUN

You can’t control weather at the Pole;
But Thule as a rule is always quite cool. 

You’ll hate Scottish weather - it’s never really hottish,
And the climate in Chile you’ll always find  chilly.

It’s true - Spanish snow...Read More

Purge
Come, lay thy kisses on my body
A sacred tribute be thy sweat
Exalt my each and every chord
Oh spike, deep thrusted in my being

Will be my torment but a hoist
Oh, sweetened poison without cure
You kneel me inescapably
Slave-made from cold and prided...Read More

Shhh...Night...he's talking in his sleep. 
Soft...Now...the corner of his lips,
Set...New...one 'hidden kiss' does peep,
So...Near...my heart feels its ellipse. 

Sounds...Nip...at breathless crags of air...
Shhh...Night...he's talking in his sleep.

A Fugitive
A Fugitive
Bus Stop Overland Park, Kansas   7:35 PM

A furrowed brow and furtive eyes
that refuse to engage another,
striding quickly through the crowd
and putting people between him
and the police car.
He is hardly the drifter or the hobo.
His walk remains crisp,...Read More

Fire and Ice
If snowflakes set aflame the ground
They touch and wintry winds abet
The flames, would she and I this day
always remain deeply in love?
Yet snow is snow-it’s wet, it’s cold
Its frigid blanket lacks the warmth
That lover’s hearts depend and thrive;
It stifles, smothers...Read More

Get out of my Heart
I lay, dripping, soaked within a dark sweat,
seeing and hearing your soft voice abet.
I want to run, to leave this merciless realm,
but you pull me closer, without a choice at helm.
Get out of my dreams.

I miss you, but I hate...Read More

Kant Incriminated
Reason insufficient, put no man above the law
And to instigate
To aid and abet in any form of hate
Is a fundamental conspiracy
Against his own exalted view
Of the savage transformed to deity by reason.
I cannot speak of St. Bartholome's massacre
But I know...Read More

Redundant Again
Redundant Again

By Elton Camp

There’s an expression hard to beat
It’s a reference to “hamburger meat”

Here’s another that’s too often seen
Come and use our “ATM machine”

In a storm, folks always “hunker down”
But to “hunker up” is not ever found

An “advance reservation” is...Read More

I have been singularly Blessed,

Living through three score of years,
With many joys, and some tears,

A Goddess was made known to me,
Who said she wants to live with me!

She has unbelievably...Read More
