A YEAR TO REMEMBER
Christmas 2019, 
a celebration of goodwill,
Silent night along with the first Noel,
Thirty-first December,
Hogmanay
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?
Happy New year we all Cheered
Best of health for two thousand and twenty,

Skin
When I turned ten,
I was taught to stay deaf
even when strangers dedicated a verbal erotica
as a lullaby to my prepubescent self.

When I turned twelve,
I was taught to stay mute
even when an acquaintance always lost his pen,
which magically reappeared every time,

Starting in Truth

Should be the teacher's motive..
It is an acquaintance 
By the Teacher of her
Own Identity..

Starting elsewhere..in a textbook
In a settled belief..only serves
To diminish the teacher and to
Guarantee a quick departure of
The thing that is intended 
To be taught..a Recognition...Read More

Premium Member That Old Sailor Bloke
Have you heard of Sir Walter Ralegh
That once-famous sailor bloke
Who brought home a cargo
Of leaves for folk to smoke
He may have been a gentleman
An acquaintance of the Queen
That cargo of tobacco
Contained a poison, nicotine
People started smoking
Who never had before
They thought...Read More

Sitting up late at night and remembering your smiling face and your eyes.  
Those eyes had a sharp and piercing look into my soul.

Wish to see


Hello…
Looked back to him;
Looking at me with a smile…

Mind says don’t ignore;
It’s starting of something great.
This is the moment of truth….

Let the small talk begins;
Who knows it may bring happiness…
No judging …. Let’s know more;

Wish to see how he speaks;

"Angels & Demons"




The Soul never sleeps
battered and lonely, the lesson 
Life spent in The Hard Sell

melting Insomnia 
mouth sucking a loaded gun

blue ribbonned and veined
pulsing electricity 
from heart to lung to brain

you’re a free bird
flying high two crimes

Premium Member Painting the Town
We danced violet nights into day,
And walked the sunny bay.
We dined champagne and caviar,
And drove far in your beautiful car!

Everyone noticed when we hit the scene,
Like actors on a movie screen.
Each hot party sent invitations.
Had friends in many nations.

I owned...Read More

An acquaintance 
and former neighbor 
I haven't seen for eons 
sneaks up and 
excitedly grips 
my shoulders from behind.

Oh, he got my attention alright!

He scared the dickens

Meeting death
A feeling I felt, yet never been experienced.
A feeling I never thought I would feel.
Yet it has been felt, fantasy world.

In heart broken stores and hopeless sighs.
I've smelt your scent, in hospital corridors and...Read More

The Forrest of life

Among the trees I walk and aspire,
light and shade mingled to my hearts desire.
This earthy force and hidden charm,
sensing enclosure in that musky arm.
Natures cathedral hold in pace,
mystical altar in the mist of grace.
For all of you in that light...Read More

A rock wall in your kitchen,
Why? The neighbor asked me.
I knew then 
We would not be having slumber parties.

Did your grandchildren paint your front door?
She queried as we approached the house.
This is when I resolved to not let her in.

THE END OF THE BEGINNING
It began with a tiny black hole in my mind,
bit by bit it gravitated me into the void;
making me a slave to silence.
I had never seen anything more powerful,
perhaps it was a god;
a deity of darkness or hell.
I was immured...Read More

Fancy takes flight
Will I be there in the rocket
The day that they set off for Mars,
Drinking champagne in abundance
And toasting the myriad stars?
Shall I meet octopoid creatures
Of extraterrestrial birth,	
Eager to make my acquaintance
And hear all the latest from earth?
Eyes lose their glaze...Read More

Vapidity
Woe betide lower men who fickle facades embrace
And wit’s hard-won gold for shifting dross exchange; 
Dubbing avarice-sired glosses exquisite gems pure,
With obscuring eyes decimating solid worth's range.

With their own ears they cannot first-hand hear,
And gauge if wild grapevines solid realities...Read More
