STOP

Barking. 
The dogs are barking again. 
It happens every night about the same time. 
I think that is the exact hour, the man comes home…
from the bar.

He lost his job, because of drink.
He lost his job, because of drugs.
He lost...Read More

Premium Member My Mind is A Whirl
Don't. Can't. Won't. Listen. Listen.
My mind is awhirl. Too much of that stuff.
Life is redundant. My friends are boring.
My parents are fussy. Absolutists.
No room for me. I try to get in my truth.
Screaming it out in looks
For I am not...Read More

Premium Member Did you see a man in blue
‘Did you see a man in blue
looked about the same size as you?’
‘A man the same size as me,
that cannot be, I’m only four foot three!’

THE PATH LESS TRAVELED - VARIATION OF A FROST POEM
Two loves had I, a careless youth 
And sorry I could not love them both.
One I loved more, which is the truth.
The fair one, beautiful yet uncouth.
The other dared not swear her troth.

I chose the younger, as just as fair,
And...Read More

Premium Member That Guy Just Whistled at Me
That guy just whistled at me.
What guy?
That guy.
I stare at my friend, incredulous.
Why would he whistle at her?
I am the cute one.
So I drag her back there.
HEY!
The six workers pretend not to notice us.
HEY! YOU! THE FAT ONE!
They all glare...Read More

Premium Member Old Fountain Pen
I'm born again! I am disgusted with
myself, with an imperishable pith
of me, a sort of enmity akin
to xenophobia: the human being
I see in mirrors is a guest from far,
a very far off world. How dare you are
embezzling me - the...Read More

Our Yearly Guest
Written: by Tom Wright
9/14/99 

The old man, as did Dad's uncle from Arkansas,
came to our house to visit each year.
The old man always arrived and always left
at about the same time, give or take a week or two.

A CHRISTMAS DREAM

I went to bed that Christmas night, and once again I dreamed
Of my dear son who now is gone, but so real now it seemed.
For I sat in the chair that’s there beside the front room door
And heard...Read More

Premium Member Fine Print
Public, or even familial, contracts
with predative purposes and rights given and received
move toward more transparency

So local folks
can better monitor
what's extracted from our communities
against what's coming back in
by way of re-investment
in future healthy regenerations
of active hope
and faith
and secular/sacred love.

Imagine what might...Read More

My eyes of umber caught in a slumber 
dreams pull me under, I’m in a trance.
My mind asunder hearing thunder,
the night has come with another chance.
Sleepwalking brings one more dance.

My arms spread out my mind does shout, 
my eyes stout...Read More

Premium Member Woodland Paradise
The luxuriously full
And richly green trees 
Were in their best form
In this part of the forest.

A spot untouched by
Civilization, possibly never
Treaded on by a human foot.
Until now.  Only the deer had left
Her prints in the sandy creek bed.

The birds...Read More

Beyond reasoning
The cry outburst in the domains still
Maybe today it’s not about the same
Troublesome shoots inflicted by death 
With each fortnight turns lamentations.

Why is that we brawl in this way each
Moment, Won’t you spell mercies upon 
Our black blood. Each day...Read More

The Strongest Part of Me
You've been the glue that's held me together
When I'm with you my heart feels like it has feathers
And the thought of losing you
Brought me to my knees, just knew this I could not do

When I go in to take a shower
I see stubble in the mirror there
Everything else is about the same
So what's the puzzle about my hair?

Passport Photos
Our passport photos aren’t great
And not because they’re out of date,
For we’d been told no smiles allowed
And to this edict, we had bowed.

On mine, I look like I’m a thug
Or someone yearning for a hug.
My husband’s looks about the same,

Dad,

when you could not go from one end of any dorm

without inhaling that not really oregano oily fragrance.

Premium Member Dorm Love
Ours was daily mysterious,
sometimes near mystical, 
rapture;
a sensual yet platonic
dorm-mate love affair,
within the only male grad student corridor
at SFSU.

He was the presumably straight Vietnam veteran
southern white good ol' boy,
athletically studying Japanese,
with a gentle passion for young Japanese women.

Did his all...Read More

Premium Member PostMillennial Virus
What remains 
when gratitude for learning
totally evaporates?

I don't know...
Totalitarian senility, maybe?
I guess I don't understand
the source of your question, dear.
Do you feel less grateful for learning
than in more formative years?

No, I don't
but I sense younger generations might.
