Wild Child

Wild Child
T. C. Boyle -
Told Victor's story.
Lived, aged, died at years forty. 
Teacher and pupil both - failed. 
Child from wild - no wild from child

School Life

School: There once was a school

Classes filled with nice students

Our goal was to learn

But my dreams turned to ash

Then my dream was to get passed

Journey: Tanka Sequence

remembered lines
of poetry from youth
just pretty poems
the adjectives and  adverbs
hypnotizing my heart

the poetic spell
almost consuming my life
from houseman to frost
and back to shakespeare
and dying inside for truth

so simple and silent
devoid of actual words
so memorable
useless dreams of prized stuff
carried away by wind and stars

Soon I was looking
at real stars and mountain crests
without prettys rosy fins
looking really looking
without judgement try to be

No turning back

A Mothers Meditation

I taught her better.
I didn’t want this for her
She’s followed my tracks
Look at her, life is ruined
She knows not what she’s done

	The Daughters Disposition

	Wow, what did I do?
	I can’t bear the pain she flaunts
	Her disappointment…
	Stings… like a swift kick inside
	What on earth was I thinking?

A Teen Dad’s Train of Thought

Did I? I didn’t!
It wouldn’t have felt as good…
She took the pill right?
What if, she was with other guys?
What do I tell my parents?

"Studies and surveys of young teen males show they are worried the pleasure 
experienced during intercourse will diminish with the use of a condom."

We agreed on this
I stamp on your toe, slyly
You cannot feel it

This is why you kept me home.

Monk's Tribute (Tanka)

Thelonious Monk
piano keyboard prophet
harmonizing scales

Melody from flat to sharp
rhythm soothing to the soul

Comments:  Thelonious Sphere Monk (1917-1982) is recognized as one of the 
most influential figures in the history of Jazz. He was one of the architects of 
bebop and his impact as a composer and pianist has had a profound influence 
on every genre of music. Thelonious Monk Institutes of Jazz are located at the 
following locations: Washington Office: 5225 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Suite 605, 
Washington, DC and Los Angeles Office: University of Southern California, 3443 
Watt Way, Lower Level, Los Angeles, CA. The Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, a 
nonprofit education organization, was founded in 1986 by the Monk family along 
with the late Maria Fisher, an opera singer and lifelong devotee of music.
