Particle Accelerator
Standing and waiting, standing and waiting,
For the imminent end,
Or the beginning, however you take it.
The copper coils charge rapidly.

Waiting and praying, waiting and praying,
That all turns out well.
I know how this goes, but hope I’m wrong.
The field flings the particles...Read More

Premium Member Turn Me On
Sticking your key in me
Goes straight to my battery
Then my starter starts spinning
Sending sparks to my ignition

Your gas goes into my carburetor
Causing an explosion in my piston well
When you press on my accelerator

Premium Member Patience



When I hear you say, “have patience,”
I want to tell you about the wheel and the mule -
when both stop, both die a little.

Then there are the sailing boat sails
when the wind stops.
Then there are marbles 
when thrown they are...Read More

Yellow Submarine comes on the radio.

Neural toxin transmission ...

Cold hearted con-fusion engine,

Crossing the White Line

Ebony drunk  and burnt rubber   sienna swerving,
I crossed the white line ...
And tragically,
with emotional intensity,
word vehicular hit a vanilla-colored human being

My coal senses were belly dulled 
by the intoxicating,   sepia pleasure liberating pang
Released from the...Read More

Small Town Breakdown
I'll run the red lights tonight. 
Laugh at the service engine light. Blare crowded notes, and scream until the rancor in my chest destroys the windshield. I've been driven out. Driven mad. And, I'm pulling out the stitches- The mask...Read More

Premium Member Know for why
Yorkshire terrain 
Country road
Street lights dim
Open go

Rooftop down
Windy sky
Birds fly by
Accelerator drive

Through the bends
Speed like lighting flies
Mind racing hard
Caution cries

Valley road
Hill tops kiss the sky
Feel the power
V6 cry

Push it harder
Push it wide
Adrenaline feeds
Danger collides

Push it harder
Challenge the risk
Feel your soul

He sidles up next to you,

and starts air guitaring in his chair
Just when you were on the verge of
hitting the right vibe

On Both Sides Of The Equator
7/10/17


I'm going to still be a trailblazer

Going beyond all the acres
And glaciers

Above and below any crater 

Similarities and differences on both sides of the equator

Events turning out minor and major

Waters with and without crocodiles or alligators
