Like one hand clapping, 
or night owls napping.   
A whistle with no pea, 
or a buzz without a bee. 

Like a city with no crowd,
or a snore that isn’t loud.
A wind which cannot sigh, 
or a storm...Read More

Hollow tin-cup chess pieces 
tethered to fate are we
manipulated by forces
landing abruptly in
   alien territories
naïve suppositions
   blown to bits 
on the wreckage of empires...Read More

We've experienced pandemics before
but the COVID-19 virus is new.
This coronavirus we can't ignore
so self-quarantine, we're told we need to,
it’s not safe to socialize anymore.

The whole world abruptly ground to a halt
as airlines and cruise ships swiftly shut down.
And although China...Read More

This is a beautiful warm day after a cold night
I chanced it and went for a walk to the woods
the track was now widened for cars.
The pace ended abruptly by an iron fence.
I could see no house, but someone...Read More

Premium Member Have you ever
Ever put a wrapper in your mouth and thrown the *sweet in the bin?
Or awoken abruptly, not sure which day you’re in?
Tried to call out a name but shouted someone else’s instead?

Premium Member The Shattered Heart
The heart aches with pain of betrayal...

Trusted thoughts, secrets, desires were handed over delicately, hesitantly, carefully…

To the gentle healer…

Full of kindness, tenderness, gentleness...

The secrets of the heart laid bare with hopes of healing….

The struggle with desire declared with vulnerability...

With open...Read More

Premium Member Monkeying Around
Her bulbous profile and pungent odor
That sunken chin and busy motor
A tremulous scowl crosses her flaring lips
From her cup rum she gulps, while others sip

Her mouth opens wide in a hideous grin
Displays shocking tooth decay within
Some teeth rotten; others chipped

Ode To The Hourglass

E'er spent in the margin of its clutch of us,
We breathe its granules in nighttide befallen,
Wanderers adrift campaign design to thus,
Daytime withdrawal of star hole we crawl in,
Be of that horizon art great plentitude,
A minuscule scope be...Read More

A yellowish day frolics with life, pleasantries errants the air, smiles
growing everywhere as man and beast are one with the leash, 
complacency occupies both time and space, the tenants,
of calmness and serenity moves in. That as being first

Coming Across a Snake

Conditioned by decades of life,
you’d think the flesh by now would have 
hardened sufficiently to bounce off 
any unexpected blow life is always 
throwing at us. Yet nothing gives 
the flesh a greater fright than when 
surprised by this slider!...Read More

Don’t judge me;
I know I appeared

You pursued me

 You greeted me

I came to your

 Sometimes you 
wanted to...Read More

I Write to Reminisce
railroad tracks carried me back
to city streets 
with flowing neon streams
no shopping cart no car to drive
without life I arrived alive
I shall not wince against the tide

bastions I planned
slid on shifting sands
walls that once withstood
slowly cave hollowed within

the village green...Read More

A Turning Point

Forty is a turning point. By then 
we have accumulated a past,
a road with a length. 

From this vantage, we see 
the course our lives have taken, 
where we have been.

 To our surprise, the road is not

There was a Tilley Willy in her back
It was a seasoned one with pneumonia hack.

Sasha had been trying to shake it since lunch
It had grown up with the McMillian bunch.

It had tentacles that wrapped around her twice.

Premium Member Believe In Reprieve Of What You Grieve
When cast into the dark recesses
Of guilt, poison spilt you cannot retrieve,
Believe in reprieve of what you grieve,
For as the penitent confesses,
So a glimmer of light may shimmer to which you cleave.

If jealousy in grotesque form,
Thin-coated, harsh-throated monstrosity
Should erupt abruptly...Read More

Skies of unrepentant gray
   Unrelenting day to day
Gloom ensconced in your brain
   Hope waxes not; it only wanes

When at the door, who appears?
   A stranger in whose eyes flash fear
Abruptly, senses so long dulled

Endless sunflower fields 
Rhythmically swaying in the wind
Like lazy ocean wave stretches 
To the distant line of horizon
Touching the edge of the sky
Melting into hot noon brilliance
Boiling all shades of yellow into
One burning brightness of sun

you ruined the rain for me
I wish that I had superpowers.
So that I could read your mind. 
I'd violate your thoughts,
As you violate mine. 
With unforgiving relentlessness. 

I would take control of you, 
And I'd make you a puppet.
So that you would know...Read More

Swans in flight gate-crash the night 
Force up the black and white 
Freeze the moment loudly

Capsize what was sleep
And leaves only disturbed parameters floundering ;

This year more than ever
I long to surpass myself
The clock is ticking
No longer can I recklessly 
Take the gift of time for granted

To give wings to my muse
Release the buildup
Of pent-up energy
And let her...Read More
