We Are All Collectors
We are all collectors;
storing images and sounds
as museums their acquisitions,
and conductors, their array
of scintillating voices….

Some we obtain for profit
and some to simply enjoy--
a lovely face with charming
grace--a lyrical smile
with eyes that beguile--
the roaring wind
stripping trees and 
flattening fields—amazing
how many worlds...Read More

Your Bestiality seems to
Become a reality 
Fingertips....wet lips 
I love it when you lick
Honey-dipped skin
I can do nothing 
But comply to your
Every whim and appetite 
Ohhhh...I love the way you bite
When I seem to entice 
Your heightened itch 
Yes I...Read More

Life can be a different nightmare
when philo-sophias self-righteously
uprightly leave us behind
so long in search of success
measured in wealth of commodified acquisitions
rather than health of natural/spiritual capitalization
of virtuously co-managed left/right
co-balancing cooperative structures
for co-investing future resilience,

Like a thirsty hummingbird
living in a too-red...Read More

I knew Yet Not this Deep
I knew you hated me,I knew you despised me,
I knew you were my enemy,I mean my foe
I Knew you wanted me dead,buried O`engraved,
I Knew you were pretending yet I never knew it ran so deep.

I Knew who I am, I...Read More

Donald John!

Didn't your mother teach you?
We do not aim our scissors
at our allies
when they ask us
to share our dangerously cutting weapons.

We also do not run over our best customers.
When we play more nicely with the playground bullies 
than with our...Read More

Assyrian Babbler

Emerald shiny baubles
attract wizard eyes ...
Balaam al-Oz
Assyrian acquisitions
be kryptonite-colored vanity
Ownership is an Alexandrian transaction,
a Grecian war rhetoric reaction
Gehazi greedy ... 
take all that your Philistine soul see,
as much as your twelve fingers can reach
Sennacherib eyes bald eagle beady,

Just as honesty plants seeds of integrity
so too
vulnerability plants seeds of honesty.

My primary vocation
in this my gay grandfatherly retiring age
is to parent mindbody challenged adolescents

If this is freedom take me to Robinson Island

Bane of Acquisitions
In its whisperings and articulations 
A searchlight into that hidden recess
The bane of acquisitions 
Becomes the flight from humility
On which freedom rests 
Shall we render benefaction of such
Crude and insidious notions.....

The Price

Listlessly he feeds the pigeons, 
strutting proudly in the park; 
kicking at an empty coke can, 
gravity has left its mark. 

Nattily attired he's one of 
many other CEOs 
high atop the corporate ladder, 
highly thought of, (what a pose!)...Read More

The Zithering Low Downs
The shuttering crimes inflicted on the mind
Always causes havoc
In the state of the soul
The sudden mystification 
The conjuring realization to reality
The considerable paths of acquisitions
The zithering low downs
A recapitulation of phylogeny
On ontogeny
An endegenous factor of misconceptions
But yet the machenism remains...Read More

We live in penury
All the comforts that modern life bestows
On the human race across the seven seas
Despite advances in material acquisitions
We still live in penury that is not material.

Abundance of wealth and material riches
And affluence kissing them in...Read More

The Line
A fire within,
Caving to the sin,
I feel at hand,
And my tanned-
Legs begin to quake,
I feel an ache,
In my soul,
Find control,
To pursue,
What’s true,
In a world of apparitions,
And acquisitions,
I need something real,
Stabbing my side to feel,
What is reality,
Certainly not actuality.

Johnny Syndrome
Women who live singly and privately
suddenly become preys to fleas,
who are seeking self serving opportunities,
If they aren't married they are considered
old maids, or bombarded with innuendoes
and clandestine propositions,
The lengths people will go through to make acquisitions,
includes tales of work and...Read More
