Soda Spot King
sift through the wind
set of course as the Albatross tread
look at the mountains breathless
the sign in the field evokes fear
try to stop the parting tear
all hellos sport a hello or goodbye
clever notion of a soft reply

the wind blows freely upon...Read More

RELIGION IS NOT A REALITY
It`s necessary for men to be alert,
And Wrong for the entire universe to be swayed,
Your last goal can even be achieved only when you revert,
What will be the reply to questions about your earthly character played,
After being in a world...Read More

Tempus Fugit - Part two
   speaking severe nasal sounds, 
   when exhalation boyhood memory draws
obvious twang – another ace in the hole for bullies – 
   gnashing identityguard where gauze
superfluous, and those hurtful ingrates lobbed words,

Now that you know me;
I am in your life for a reason - 
I am in your life for a season. 
I may be only your happenstance 
your afterthought that comes 
when all your cards are played. 

Maybe I am...Read More

Crunch, crackle, crackle, crackle, crunch
Crunch, crackle, crackle, crackle, crunch
The leaves under my heavy footfalls
Those nor easterly winds sure pack a punch
Onward it is, my freedom calls

Nothing worth having seems to come easy
Another bridge to cross, just another bridge
From my past now I must break...Read More

My Nose Is Hard
Murk Rammer froze as he felt the nuzzle
of a snub-nosed thirty-eight’s deadly muzzle.
Louis The Retch poked it into his back.
“The jig’s up, Rammer. I ain’t cuttin’ no slack.”

Murk had been tricked by a double-crossing dame,
alias “Frigitte,” he didn’t know her...Read More

Be it as it may I'll try my hand at some clichés
    and address the elephant in the room soon when pigs fly.
It’s a win- win situation, put your game face on, work the crowd

Ace in the hole
Even if they make more jobs in 
the name of us plebs in the populace, 
We won't still get placed; 
we don't know the puerile and popular.
They term us the weak, 
the lame and every meaning of regular,
But we are...Read More

Grandmother
"A child, more than all other gifts
That earth can offer to declining man,
Brings hope with it, and forward-looking thoughts."

			W. Wordsworth
								

I am your grandmother.
I spent 24 years making
parenting mistakes, so I think
I'm pretty well trained now,
pretty worn down, open-minded
and accepting.
I think...Read More

Few have ever had the chance to really...Read More

Playing Poker With The Devil

Greed and temptation are some of the tools

God has no problem if we make a profit
If we do it his way and don't act like fools

Solitare
Solitare is a game
Strategy? Suspense? Quite the game
I can remember the last card I drew
A meaningless red king
The king had nowhere to go
Nowhere to place himself
No queen to lay with
And there were the seven of them all in a row
I...Read More

Cliches
Somebody told me that cliches are dead
But what if I run out of things to say
Can I say "to know me is to love me"
Or "tomorrow is just another day"

What about "liars never prosper and cheaters never win"
Would I be...Read More

Missing Castles
All the castles
I'd longed to see,
Will never stand
In front of me

All the knowledge
I have gained,
All the emotions,
I have feigned

And now real love
To make me cry
I lie in bed,
I wonder why...

It seems unfair,
But such is life,
I've suffered much,
As with an unfaithful...Read More

Just listen will you


I keep trying to tell you;
But you’re just not listening.
I tell you time is running out;
And you tell me you’re just taking care of business.

What I’m doing right now;
This isn’t forever (you say);
And I know what you’re saying is;
Don’t worry...Read More

Playing BlackJack with the Devil
He lay awaiting spraying cards

Beckoning with his forked tongue

Come here my son lay down your guard

Bet what you like it is only for fun

I started with a bet so small

A face arriving right at my door

The second led only to...Read More
