The Tale Of The Cross
Hi An Cest Or,
Have you heard of the mediator?

       An Cest Or
Of course, unique, 
He's the mender of techniques.

Navigating Outward Bounds Of Relationships
Volition, orientation familiarization aahing
and oohing within restrictive paradigm molding
inviolable honorable gentility -
flagrantly, desirously, clearly boyz abandoning
willfully skirting, panting (heavily)
forfeiting abominably, (no Joe King) abiding

chomping at bit, damning delineated, or obscure
parameters, between one acceding
Earthlinked selfish living
psychosexual pining human bing,
and another ardently...Read More

Premium Member Last breath of sunset
Royal blue sky scattered sapphire clouds
On horizon embroidered in navy blue attire
Summoned by the onset of marigold sun 
Emitting amber gold on tuscan yellow fire
Where tapestry of fluffy lavender floats
Decorating patterns of designs periwinkle 

Mosaic of colors then spray-paint the...Read More

Dark Shadows
I used to live in Dark Shadows
Abutting the cemetery
My wife and her lover plotted
An hole in the ground for me

As grave as it is to decrypt
They vaulted me into a tomb
On which my dear wife had chiselled,
"Good gracious!  Here...Read More

Cecil County Maryland
(Land that doth marry mother lode 
of sublime earthen land and sea).
Age of exploration 
   ushered cruel fate 
   against “red” men living 
   in bliss by agents

The Man in Black Checkered Pants
“Who was The Man in Black Checkered Pants?” my parents have asked from time to time. 
They recall with curiosity about my childish and surely exaggerated fear of this figure in my mind. 
I feared the backyard at the farm...Read More

Swamp Sundaze
A dog and a frog
(with the names of Bull)
sit on a log
abutting a synagogue
drinking eggnog
until they are full
Suddenly agog
(by a fog in their bog
that makes them slog
like a cog
when they jog)
begin a dialogue
with a demagogue hedgehog
"Start a blog monologue

Dear Zephyr
O you, Dear Zephyr! Blow, blow, blow
Over the vill. that’s beneath the hill
Abutting my heart and opened hand’s claw
Never be stopped and never be slow.
Not be so hot, not be so chill
So that much comfort we feel
To lessen the heat...Read More

In the darkest corner of her living room, 
she waits to eat. A stone’s throw away, 
her ex lives with their kids, his goulash 
wafting reek into her open windows. 

Through the one in her master bedroom,...Read More

Egg at the Odd of Night
inventoried oval-stoned
cathedrals appealing
chiming crimes of passion
woke citronella
hung in cement-hamocked snowdrifts
cloaked slow on slick-stained windowsides
tenement sheets
with the pomegranate notes
of rhythms unrhymed
   while all the uptown laundromarts
rising up
from insomniac-scrambled sidewalks
corked-copper moon tumbling earthward
like a sweet
sweatshredded pennants
   of sun-saliva...Read More

A Place in the Country
A Place in the Country

By Elton Camp

I finally got tired of living on a tiny lot in the city
With the woods and open land, to stay was a pity
So I bought a cabin located on 100 acres of land

Splash of Panic
The ones who would soak 
the mother who drowned 
her children in serpentine
seas never floated a child. 

When splashed amongst 
the horror-stricken, 
we too feign revulsion. 
Evoke higher powers and
baptismal pools: the fluidity
in the womb. The commingled bond.
But single...Read More
