Regarding inconsolable screaming infant
christened Matthew Scott Harris woke
eureka insight about said newborn self,
experiences ultra sensitivity courtesy
loud noises and/or sleep disruption.

I purportedly cried mine
trademark noisy hullabaloo
no matter pallor turned
fifty plus shades of blue
nonstop nary a clue

Obelisk beings are cast from concrete; ego
packed solid, their ramrod pride will stoop never

quite another face, when challenged, they’ll sever
umbilical ties through, as rock hardness grows…

Torched by...Read More

There is no waiting in the silence
raining down
on a sun drenched afternoon

gorged and greeted
burning bright 

mint leaf scents
turquoise fields of play
acquiescence moments 
left here to stay

smoke rises
fills the earth with warmth

her essence
a flower 
the scent of apple
rich and ripe

that redefines the archaic, apocalyptical allure 
 driving humanity to its brink of active self annihilation;

Almighty God, the supreme Father above
assures me, through Scriptures’ precepts, His divine affection
affirming His marvelous vibrant love’s abundance
always at work to grant pardon absolutely
and assuage my guilt-caused anguish*

along my heart’s repentant acquiescence.

Shame and guilt sabotaged mine healthy growth
Internalized emotions wrought
quotidian psychological oppression
retrospective reflection courtesy
20/20 hindsight reveals absolute zero
positive development of body, mind, and spirit
extreme agitation compromised

every year since being
born free and clear of obvious defects
minus alien aberration, Russian collusion...,
nor deplorable crooked Hillary accusation

As we search the river’s source,
It jumps the banks of our twisted past,
Set sail for the uncharted,
The pale flickering of the pole star,
The ever present circle,
Surrounding, unfolding, revealing,
Where mere words find their ending,
My being extols with creation,
As the unseen manifests,

He took rhino muzzle excrescence
For boost of his hoped for tumescence
But in spite of big dose
From a pachyderm‘s nose
It was useless with no acquiescence

Lil Lady from Lansing
Lil is Pekipoo MacDuffee, one scruffy, fluffy pup.
Lil Lady moves in many grooves and improves with each try.
When she sits, she throws fits; she never quits moving off base;
as team mascot, Lady is quite the right sight, all heads up.

An adolescent dawn, an adult noon, 
an elderly twilight, an ageless dusk…
I wonder why in the decreasing Moon
I love you love when I am a bit brusque
with you. Your acquiescence, your retreat,
your sweet participation in the crime
against morality tempts me...Read More

not often enough,
I stop my morning routine
to watch the feeding drama breathe feathered flurries in and out,

my side-yard bird feeder

Outside my kitchen windows
over this morning's sudsy sink,
looking across a twinkling white field
of early March snow,
simply breathing us all...Read More

Blanket of Lies

I’m slowly dying ... being pillow buried alive,
and ain’t nobody’s pity coming
to prematurely save me

I fell into this death trap of my own crypt choosing,
when the creeping lust

I shouldna went scuba diving for...Read More

Authority is a privilege
It is power mixed with rule
It’s control and domination
Oftentimes misused as tool
And when orders are not followed
When instruction is ignored
Then the charge will be defiance
Which will soon be underscored
For authority wants order
Yes, it will lay down the...Read More

He is a quiet, gentle man,
With a friendly, easy smile.
He's helpful and considerate,
Honest, without guile.

He works as the county game warden.
His family lives in the dell.
Well mannered, friendly, peaceful folk,
But no one knows them well.

If ever there is trouble,
He's there...Read More

"You are ... different, aren't you?" she said, crinkling her nose.

That sentiment, spoken by my fourth grade home-room teacher
Had been paraphrased many times before
(And would be countless times again)
Different, unusual, odd, weird, curious, complex, or just plain strange

Those were the...Read More

She loved him dearly; many times she bled

With acquiescence she avoids despair
Although there’s sorrow chiselled in her heart
And frozen...Read More

  Moon pale, convalescent

Folding the Flag

Amend them errant, wavy ways,
put a cease crease in those idol traditions
Don’t give servile salutes to the droopy god

wrapped cloth around the pursed mouth

doomed dolt, numbed nerd, trampled trumpery:3
the Medicare, an undeserved fund the patients spend,
