I  used to pick pockets
And steal tomato at the market place
I beg on the streets of Mumbai, India’s largest city
I stop drivers and ask for spare change 
I usually get...Read More

Crossing the mud flats
of San Francisco Bay, 
doing sixty-five, 
or there abouts,
on a bright and sunny
summer's day, 

when from out of the radio
a bluesy voice came, 
and caught me as her prey. 
Her voice was young and
with such power,
she really...Read More

MY FUNNY VALENTINE
Lonely teardrops gasping for air...my funny valentine he's never there.
 How can you mend a broken heart once it's been broke too many times. 
Realizing love is undependable to the many times a day he makes you cry.
 Crying, suffering,...Read More

A Former Great Nations Squandered Wealth I
Swept up into piles; everywhere 
Abouts; in collected heaps all 
Around.               
It is almost as if the drab 
Streets were strewn with the 
Precious wealth of...Read More

of lapping cold milk, eating fresh meat, running wild

running to room to room to sniff and search for what abouts

Where abouts
For those who wonder where I am
or where I can be found
I'm in the mid west of my country
in a well known college town

How I got here or purpose being
might be easily explained
but looking at this thing called providence

The Burning


It was seven days and seven nights
Or there abouts, I was not so sure
Life was shrouded in the darkness not at all pure
I lost track of dawn, of dusk, of realities fight
To keep me conscious
To keep me right
Comatose, delirious,...Read More

The Trials of Meretrix Canto III
Diminishing virtues stripped away
From the flesh
By the fierce brined rods that freely 
Course thy hot crimson blood; 
Dry cracked lips attempting to
Fashion broken words of compliance
That so must needs to be spoken...
But...Ohhh, Meretrix...
My foolish and innocent child -
If you but...Read More

The Trials of Meretrix Canto I
When your befuddled mind
Forsakes upon the ragged edge
Of swirling darkness;
Where eternal night awaits
To sate upon purest innocence
Besides an open grave!
When the gravity of your perils
Be foully whispered within
Dismayed
And abject earshot;
Where salvation for despairing souls
Be so hopelessly betrayed!

Then I wouldst draw...Read More

O Glorious Autumn
O glorious Autumn of melancholic 
Gold -
All abouts the brightly lit
Woodlands
Your wonderful artistry behold!
Tinted bronzes,
Darting between awkward firs
Of sobering Evergreen,
Loiter inside mauve havens
Splashed with palest yellows -
And dappled with many differing 
Limes
Throughout this variegated Theme;
A myriad of rustling contentment,
Sweetest contrasting...Read More

Cygnus olor
Chaste and more graceful
Than the white canvassed Dhow:
Reclines sweet Nefertiti 
Upon a Blue Nile breeze.
Fabled entity more whiter
Than the purest white snow
That thickly blankets
And folds over the wide Pyrenees.

Dipped is thy beak 
Into a harvesters August sunset;
A Bohun proper,
Gorged and...Read More

Churchyard at Midnight
Twas darkness upon the quietly residing heath...
And deathly was the sullen red sandstone tower...
Standing gloomily inside the masons dry-stone walls
Amidst toppling granite slabs and the faded, wilting flower.

Solemn was the chime of the hollow, mournful bell
When tolling out on midnights...Read More

Auburn
It is thy wanton gestures that contrive inside long auburn
curls -
Wherefore to diminish the pleas of a warm, lustful
breeze!
For though gilded rays shall grace all thy sunlit days 
Tis Moonstrucks cast beams, your mischiefs, 
That did so deceive.

Happily ye wander...Read More

Alone
Crafting illustrations of endless doubts,
Tirelessly exploring for those so-called peaceful where-abouts,

   Slowly illuminating those dark corners of paranoia,
Trembling as the shadows conspire into black-hearted Casanovas,

   Conforming to the consistent routine,
Abandoning yet another opportunity into the unchanging...Read More

Of a man who was told he had to die,

For a crime he committed in the dead of night,

I am walking through the darknest
Overcasted by the confusion that clouds my life and decesion

Solace in solitude is not solace,
Yet solitude drapes around me as fog.  
It backs up against the yellowing pale of democracy,
falling to cries of ism.
Ism builds the bridge 
but passes nothing across.
Ism makes us all equally nothing.
It fills no...Read More

Pondering impossible possibilities
mind collapsed in simple mazes

Not at his work not at his home
Days pass as a passer by finds
His right leg in a country wind
 
Days later his left arm in a ditch
All is quiet, enquiries have hit a hitch
