Titan is tamed
A white horse stomping dream rides 
thundering hooves jump off ridges
beyond mountains to distant realms,
euphoria ripples in speed of lightning.
its coat gleaming like a crystal palace.
roaming free of saddles, prairies yonder. 
big eyes in wonder, unfettered reins
accelerating spirits of broken...Read More

Premium Member Snake


It surges away accelerating within its length,
a self-winding mind
pumped through muscular hoops.

A sharpshooting tongue flicks, drilling space,
muscular chains shrug along propelling flanks.

Snake slips through its own ribs;
watching that swift cage 
roll over the tractor-prints of its flesh
my pulse also pushes...Read More

We continue wandering,
always you lift me up;
Never really completing the circle 
despite what you say is done;
Entering a different phase 
roaming where I have already been;
In a time I cannot remember,  
nor a moment I could ever forget;

Bring back the horse and buggy
Automobile prohibitive maintenance costs
pitches me pitifully begging for alms
lamenting dog forsaken
melon collie unpleasant circumstances
pleading with outstretched palms
disgraced to beg, perhaps donate
major organ and/or entire body

to ease vehicular qualms
aha... methinks the missus could pose
as ventriloquist after mortician embalms
these lovely bones, but,...Read More

flashed past
brief memories
soon forgotten
promises made
to ourselves

still unfilled
new year’s
resolutions
barely edited
from year to year
promises
that take 
a moment
to make
a lifetime
to honour
as the
inevitable

to a slow or
painful
abrupt
cessation

Risk the cars
Long way down the road
Neon lights marking our path
I'm all the way out this far
There's no turning back
Smart phones in hand
Lyrics pulled out on our screens
Windows rolled down
Inviting all raindrops inside
Our retro rusty red
Racing down the road
We were staying in...Read More

Premium Member Fast-Tracking The Future
The Free World is on a speeding train,
Accelerating at a rate insane,
Its progress harnessed to technology,
Now worshipped far more than theology,
And though there has been gain
In alleviating pain,
Modern ideology
Has, without apology,
Neglected areas humane
Where there is still much to attain
In the...Read More

That's One Small Step
For a man....

A calendar marks fifty years
since an audacious mission,
a rare moment of global unity,
a leap forward.  

But there is no leap, no grand
accomplishment without small steps.
Before female computers
slide rule math was machined 
into mechanical gears, 
then encoded in...Read More

Passengers jolted backward
Lips pressed together

Why worry
Why worry...?

Within the same breath
yukon catastrophize and
make mountain range
out of molehill mental material
impossible to scale
even with best Sherpa as guide.

Take advice from expert

In My Mind
Strength comes as quickly as night erases the sun. Inward the warm glow of wisdom and righteousness intertwines with decisions and reluctance. How to cope and perceive goals and dreams trickle through our souls with an ebbing sea of worry...Read More

No Brakes.

Accelerating at a faster and faster pace
All down hill without a brake
For I have lost control
Feel no longer human
Only smothering consuming darkness
And biting bitter cold

For I lingered in limbo 
Alone
For much too long
I was never weak
But strong
I pushed myself...Read More

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

Those of us
who have had guilty pleasures
of owning valuable real property,
like a car
and rental property
and office equipment

Office buildings,
solar inverters,
and nuclear holocaust delivery systems
but not privately owned MBA degrees
or merely intellectual property
or more intimately owned emotional properties,

Premium Member Hating Inside Haters
Like warring against faithful warriors,
I host these inside spirited voices
sometimes LeftWing win/win
and sometimes RightWing suboptimal win/lose,

Now outwardly accelerating toward deniable lose/lose climates--
narrow-minded nationalism
patriarchal religious privileged truth
xenophobic fears my own species will survive
to kill all others,
nihilism,
entropic dead ego-less apathy
un-ecosystemically pathological.

RightWing cynicism

Love doesn't pay the bills 
Neither does it make the meals 
Love is real but currency changes how we feel 
About moving up emotional hills
Resulting to cautious gearing of our love wheels

I shall return with a vengeance
To protect all peoples' innocence,
No more deception,
No exception.

By all the powers invested in me,
May all people of the Earth be set free.
Not through death,
But through every breath they breathe.

Hyperfocus Hocus Pocus
The force of my thoughts is a force to report,
Attention, no Deficit, Hyperactive, no Disorder, call it slaughter

Burst Into Flames


You told me 
when I stepped into your bad dreams
that cloudy day,
you were on a midnight bullet flight 
to Phoenix from L.A.

Smoking barrel infidelity blues
was the red-eye, insomnia jet lag that had
you on a pillow cry toss-n-turn night

You said all...Read More

Strapped on my mother's back
Chatter of women fill the streets
Happy screams of children in perfect harmony

A knot holds me steady 
My mother's back a safe haven for me
As my head rocks slightly from the rythm of her feet

She runs, my...Read More

Until now
Sharp breath cuts through my diaphram
I fail to breath, gasping for air...
Emotional blood flows through my veins

My pulse rate suffocates me!

Bitter lumps swells within my chest
Im heaving with a load of pressure
