Premium Member Favorite Protegee
His favorite protégée
Mentors her day by day
You are his curious delight 
You're always affable
And so unflappable
Yes you're his favorite acolyte

Though your aura's sacred chic
Radiating cool mystique
Your life story does bespeak
Constant fight

His patronage for your art
Remains for you're his dear heart

Premium Member Earthchild COLLABORATION
She holds me in magnetic fascination,
a force beyond control, beyond delight...
I turn to her in helpless adoration.

Her steely grip is my emancipation, 
the liberating sense that all is right -
she holds me in magnetic fascination.

I thrill at my unwilling subjugation,

Straight Ghetto

Poverty chained to a flagpole — 
I was ivory told,
my ebony soul
got set free by a publican vote

A historic hot mess
was cleaned up
with a profitable confess
Anthem chimes tolled cold data technology
halted the reptilian ingress

Crooked logic
delivered straight ghetto
A rich lie always...Read More

Regal Red Wine
As poured for you, a glass of regal red,
a liquid ruby, a weighty gemstone,
a fruit in itself, fallen or fresh picked
with fragrant promise, offering a purse 
of favours to the loyal acolyte.

Charged by Summer thirty years gone by,
the clarity of...Read More

Sage And Cur
When we sat together,
we whispered almost as one,
not as conspirators,
but as mentor and acolyte,
and you spoke of things that I did not comprehend
yet with words that I knew were true.
You warned me of a chimera,
I've fallen prey to several since.

A Riddle
Two wooden gangways
Jutting out onto the waters
Identical in every way, and yet…

Boats have long since ceased to come
What once arrived every day
No more the fisher’s poles and traps
Come to reap the bountiful bay

Yet there they are, rising still
Above the water,...Read More

Premium Member Night Of Infamy
The lightning, it was over bright

Arthritic trees, stripped bare of leaves,

seemed skeletal, inflicting fright

The lightning, it was over bright

as if the devil's acolyte 

The world shall beg for mercy, please!

The lightning, it was over bright

Some are sparks

Some are the sparks from a Parliament bonfire,
That fly ever upwards to spin and whirl 
amongst the stars and then are extinguished,
falling as a fleck of ash to lie amongst many 
in a grey layer, undistinguished one from...Read More

SEA GRAPE for Michael
This is not Miami, the real site
of the sea grape.  This is a wannabe--
a biker town, a speedway town.  Not 
the fabled city of Dream Whip clouds
expressed into a flawless sky.   Not
the cool Technicolor dawn when...Read More

My place
My place

There also is my place, where I explore my understanding
Of words that are said and thoughts revealed, interpretations made;
Intimacy shared and dissected, speculations proffered and discarded,
And wisdom is given and received, the acolyte at the master’s feet.

It is my...Read More

Apostle Who Was A Fossil

Some seem to be calling me an apostle 
Who they say looks like an old fossil
With hair which is so gray as can be
And bruised body bent just like a tree

My Favorite Poet
Doth it not thrill thee, Poet,
Dead and dust though thy art,
To feel how I press thy singing
Close to my heart?

In Indian catalogue, your works
I would press so close
To my chest like man's third-leg
Snuggling to...Read More
