Anonymous Passersby
rock hard ribbons string
cracking cobbled roads
hoards harmonize 
with hidden steel chains
fractured silver mirrors reflect 
an absentminded people
and ambivalence marches through

cloaked the anonymous labor
along grey stone city streets 
cross crumbling avenues

broken beleaguered faces
the blind fail to grasp
the revolving refugee

plodding shadows...Read More

A storm is brewing.
Heavy water laden clouds rise thickly,
the darkening sun plunges quickly
behind deep purple mountains,
hiding the gentle moonlight
that normally lights my erratic way.

I meander absentminded
around a maze of mountain paths,
suffering a terrible purgatory.
For the storm is raging outside and...Read More

Absentminded completely.

(woman) Being what, never mind you can't remember.
(man) How can I forget what you've found. 
You're like an insect exploring...Read More

Neither half of any equation - -
Offerings all-inclusively controlled,

  consummating thirst's affectations

   eliciting truth's darkly responsive swallow

        of pretenses pseudo-poetic poison,

            flamboyantly feverish flavors from

Premium Member Absentminded Brent
~Absentminded Brent~ 

When somebody looks for him,
they find that he's never there.
He's the kid that people never see
In the classroom, emptied, they find his chair.

When the teachers run the list of names,
They call out, in fact, for Brent.
But Brent he's...Read More

The Bruised Name
Under the feet of heartless passersby, a name no one knows 
where from, rolling along the path blood-stained; the name 
wounded from time after time is kicked and trampled
by the absentminded strollers drifting along the way 
no one cares where...Read More

I Am

I am here but only briefly, 
a believer in today, tomorrow
and ever after. I am a blustery wind
shaking the foundation and a gentle 
breeze rustling the leaves.
I am an observer of the beautiful, 
graceful, awkward and absurd,
feeling like a spy...Read More

Premium Member Hay Meadow Creek
The Hay Meadow Creek divides my Parent's land
Its waters run clear and true
It then flows into the Prairie
Along untended Lincoln County lands.

The Prairie is a little wider
A little deeper too
Its banks are a little more traveled
By seasoned anglers through and...Read More

an obligation to buy new shoes.

Lessons were over
But there was no sight of mother 
Decided to wait for a while
However patience fell victim to guile

Walking down the hill
My body consumed by chill
I hoped that the car would unexpectedly appear
To ease my mounting fear

Saw many cars...Read More
