In eyelids
Slow close
Upon the fly

As tongues
To split
Apart the sky

In lungs
Reaching for 
Celestial being

Upon lips 
Never kissed
Forever to live
In dream

A fait accompli
Of rot
Bend the knee
To the only living God
An' do the bidding 
Of entropy

With tears
To thicken rain
An' wither down stone

In winds
To softly whisper
The bidding...Read More

         San Francisco
She ran in the Bay to Breakers,
Heavy sweat baptizing her furrowed 
Now, decades later, she ponders 
how she was able to endure it.
How, how, how?
The thunder of Nike fitted running
The ebullient jubilance and shouts 
of happy,supporting...Read More

Premium Member I Come Before You
I come before you, proclaiming you're Brother
Or Sister in Christ's death, that Eve was our Mother
Though you claim (in faith too) that my Truth’s your falsehood!
If all faith’s just faith, how can we in our childhood
Claim ‘Wisdom’ of adults (a...Read More

Fait Accompli'
A gift or obligation,
  the Poet signed his name

A promise wrapped in silence,
  decision masked by pain

One choice among the many,
  within salvation lies

The victors lay unspoiled
  —with truth to live or die

Expanded Vocabulary
She said concretize
and her vocabulary
Typified my desire
for words
Then I came
across boondoggle
and thought
hell no, 
Not me
feed me every
word in your

to fait-accompli
Make me the greatest
of all time
if only in my mind
Her tongue
can use my mind
to the point
of confessing
Ooo, I like...Read More

In Fatuous Cupidity

The feathers have no...Read More

We were returning from space
To colonise would become a race

Over population is bound to come
Moon or mars would become home for some

Tension was mounting high
I didn’t hear my companion sigh

History was been recorded
Would we survive...Read More

Let me elaborate
Let me elaborate

On what love means to me

Giving her the freedom

In which to breathe

Give her space and time

To express herself

She is not your prisoner

So don't lock her in your cell

You never own this woman

Even if she's your wife

Let me elaborate

Seeking Exculpation

To feel desolate that once more no prayers were answered,

malaysia long ago
above swirling dark,
in sky drained of color,
sprawling Asia,
spread out in a carpet,
of billboards and humanity.
watching it all from the world's largest tower,
feeling like a king in a secondhand sky,
now walking among streets, stalls, and stooped shoulders,
inhaling foreign vapors.

The ultimate fight
Death match supreme
The truth within sight
Pulling no punches

French Invasion: Whine and Cheese
Since the bloody Battle of Hastings
When 'Arold got killed by French Bill

And I've just about had my fill

Don't we have enough words of our own
In this wonderful language of ours?

This dream was not mine from the beginning, 
For others wiser, reasoning, adept 
Dared move beyond their allotted space 
To question why injustice continue 
On a-pace, simply because it has been 
Accepted fait accompli far too long.

It was a day like no other
ethereal was the feeling in my soul

The Dullest Days

A thousand laden clouds within my chest
Burst forth within to flood my being

The Anger Speaks To Me

The anger speaks to me of some long distant
fear.  I do not remember becoming angry, only
that I am angry.  The anger is hidden, or so I’d
like to think, deep inside a vault alongside the

fait accompli
Today I watched a video
Set to music
It was faithless stuff
Reminding me
Of the creatures in virtual reality
Trying to discern how to navigate
Through their maze of
Confused white lights
And misdirection
Upheld by a puff of air
With only the vaguest notion
Of some reward to strive...Read More

Premium Member Wicked Mischief
Stealthily and with no invitation,
Wicked Mischief rides into my night,
dismounts and strides inside. How impolite!
For rudely she intrudes - this aberration,
bearing that unholy “deprivation”
strongly brewed with venom of her spite,
and if I can, I’ll try to expedite
her speedy flight; ...Read More

My Plea if You Please

Cop-out - there is nothing new under the sun.
Do they mean all is already done?
A measured game plan, foresee

A new form I guarantee.
Here I will end as I have begun,
