Finding humor in the most common of things
Is the ability reserved for a bunch of us dingalings
Ya gotta be silly
A silly hillbilly
Even if you start accosting strangers in the spring

Premium Member President Trump
Being on the team that got
Trump elected.
People treat me as if
I were seriously infected.
For being part of a team,
That shares Trump's
American dream!

Of an America strong and 
free of government coercion, 
And unwilling to be brainwashed into
Socialistic promises of freebie 
Trump believes in the...Read More

I went from ghetto living
And the ghetto kind of days
To being up out of it
And to seeing better days.
Now the truth stays 
And my mind plays,
in a blessed way
defying the lie defining me 
in my early days.
I keep my goal...Read More

"Daughters of Time, the hypocritic Days,
Muffled and dumb like the barefoot dervishes,
And marching single in an endless file,
Bring diadems and fagots in their hands."

Premium Member Holly's Christmas Story
Our sweet dog Holly lies under our tree
She is wagging her tail so gleefully,

Knocking about the light Christmas tree balls.
She becomes quite shocked as one of them falls.

Holly thinks her gifts are ribbons and bows
She chews them and hides them,...Read More

Father Time
It was one of those splendid mellow golden days 
in early autumn when many trees, though still green,
begin to betray a trace of red or yellow. 

In the afternoon I took little Eleanor to the park 
just round the corner...Read More

Premium Member Accosting Eye to Eye
On a dive to wreck of good ship "Soul"
I noticed a door locked tight.
Over I swam to peer inside a keyhole
Expecting it be blocked up tight.

In shock I pulled eye back in awe.
For I saw an eye in hole
Staring right...Read More

Ivey Walker


Verily, verily, my friends!

You are all dead now.

So I can speak candidly.

I found out,

When my ripe red rose bloom 

Opened early, mysteriously, 

Wantonly, as with all crazed flowers,

Drunk with the wine of forbidden delights.

I found out,

There is no real...Read More

Plastic faces
Once I used to see
flowery smiles,
fruitful friendships,
 and ocean-deep loving hearts.

Decades after,
now I have no expectations...
I make no inferences
at the plastic faces looking at me;
lip-length hellos accosting me;
and those  shallow hearts 
spread before me.

Thinking of the changed world
I looked...Read More

You know
You Know

Get on board or Get off 
I thought you were the best thing I ever had
Especially In 2006
You know
 But you were full of lies
Edible arraignments taste better than you ever did 
 I never knew something that can...Read More

Mum's Advice Ignored - "Don't Talk to Strangers!"
When I was young, an urban lass, and not gregarious,
I’d never dream of speaking to a stranger on a bus.

I’d sit, demure, my eyes downcast, and hope quite desperately
That none of those weird passengers would try accosting me.

But, now I’m...Read More

No man should know unbearable grief,
and carry with him it's uneasy burden;
and regret could be as heavy as that,
not to have accomplished much before his death:
wouldn't a loving father be proud of his only son?
But mine followed his own greed...Read More

Spider Mite
Lady Spider weaving her web again;
Powerful stories surfing on the net.
Hostess - protecting anchors around
Trail Blazer, accosting melodic sound.   

Wonder now, what traps she spins.
Boomerang, those frailed legs wantonly pin.
Hideous grips, Neo Geometric moves,
Tempting shots, another day, type...Read More

Uncle Russ
Uncle Russ, never made much a fuss,
he was just kinda sorta rambunctious.
The whole whetsell bunch, when in a crunch
bent the rules without much compunction.

The cops, unamused, and very short-fused,
in Detroit they did ruff up my dad.
But that’s not so bad,...Read More
