The Evening Bird
I rose from my couch unhappy, as one of the dead, 
Repose reluctant to join me, 
My window shades enticed, to display a truth
So unnatural to refuse, I did abrade myself to look
A black and white film alighting on...Read More

Disease List Of Walking Hospital

When people ask me 
“how are you”, I say “fine”,
a short reply but a huge lie,
because I am a walking hospital 
where in every corner disease lurks, 
from head to toe the list is below.

The head splits in hypertensive headache...Read More

In Contemplation of Mortality

Each time our eyes the fading skyline draw,  		
Those hollow waters of that black-lit sea,
That worries wits with nous and bid us see,
The model of a most despotic law.	
Should we dispute the higher hand of awe,			
on fairness of mortality,...Read More

Twas The Night Before Inspection...,

Not a human creature stirred, nor seen

Why Fear A Future
Why fear a future not foreseeable?
Would this question that doubts abrade,
remain unanswered without curiosity?
I'd be left with a regret as insurmountable
as guilt itself: what gains would I have made,
if I had held back and ignored this possibility?

A long time ago,...Read More

Ruins Of Transformation

Hands hold, faces face
Eyes lock, bridge distance
Time stops in silent grace.
Hands hang, faces distort
Eyes glare, bridge burns
Past crashes, time aborts.

Minds close, hearts abrade
Egos blaze on identity incinerated
Pledges wreck, bonds degrade.
Road deserted in journey to isolation
Past keeps the future...Read More

Winter creeps across the landscape
unfurls a blackness – an ivory drape
across horizon’s denied a shape.
Crystal eyes devoid of sight

Entombed within a soundless night
beneath the chill of withering blight
mourned by shivering candlelight
failing flicker - last hope mislaid

Aghast under pale moon’s charade
the...Read More

Brimstone BBQ
Take a number and pick a seat

How are you enjoying the heat

Welcome to the kitchen of hell

You will be here for a spell

Rotten meat and burning flesh

Hope you don't mind the smell 

Smell of sulphur masks the fumes

Morbid screaming from...Read More

Situations of life on goodwill may abrade
each stroke and fall, bringing out a lower grade
a cracker Jack
to welcome back
carving out an attraction from the same trade.

If Time Changes, Then Why Don't We
I’d heard of Persephone, that beautiful earthly maid, 
Who’d vowed her love to Hades, although her mother forbade –
An enraged Demeter scorched the earth; a desolate paradise was made,
But Persephone visits still, embrocating this soil- 
I know, because these winters...Read More

Are Often
Choose Wrong, Suffer Long
Written: by Tom Wright

No decisions that we’ve ever made.
Have come without attached cost;
Whether right minded or abrade,
Their ramifications are seldom lost.

We do our best when reaching choices,
And oft times sing another sad song.
Occasionally we pay heed...Read More

At a glance (glimpse) 

To the average tourist
the wall is (was) the divide
between east and west
Checkpoint Charlie
the obvious choice
point of reference
almost irreverent
in its poignancy

To see the cultural divisions
needs close obs, more diligence
The guest workers from the east
restless from centuries of...Read More

A Time to Retreat
A fellow gets restless,  walking along the shore,
The mystery is of his making, pondering questions 
that the formless, transient ocean,
all the weathering winds, 
the heaving land,
can never answer.

There is drama that may never be denied,
the mystery that took you...Read More

I know a world of sadness in your grace
because in thee, I cannot trace
my own world's longing to embrace
some crudeness wronging, some deface.

Cantingly, subjects stronging with replace
of aptitude, and songing - happier days
that built hope's erstwhile thronging, not encased
with worries...Read More
