A poet a playwright, an actor and dreamer.
I love my reflection, a challenge, applause.
I’ve thought of a screenplay, a sit-com and novel.
I feel I am perfect, a genius, appealing.
I fear I’ll be wrong on all three...Read More

Bio Modified - MOLESTED

A poet, a dramatist, an actor and a pessimist;
Researching, developing and adapting,
TV screens, stage productions and filming

While the scars of the past still remain,
the wounds haven’t closed since 1964,
when I was merely eight years old. 

In a large part, because...Read More

Summer Haze
Summer Haze
by Michael R. Burch

The hazy, smoke-filled skies of summer I remember well;
farewell was on my mind, and the thoughts that I can't tell
rang bells within (the din was in) my mind, and I can't say
if what we had was...Read More

A Poet's Heart Speaking On One Current Politician's Game

Tom Chance was an outstanding actor and friend
I saw him play a professor dying of cancer
The death scene was especially moving.
Tom had cancer too that killed him a few months later
I admired how he was able to separate

Premium Member Obsession's Bitter Harvest
Lights! Camera! Action!
Cue “My Sister Sam”
At first sight there was attraction
Fanboy’s heart was smitten—BAM!

As he watched her on TV
His infatuation grew
So he wrote her lots of fan mail
Her one response stirred obsession's brew

For a time all was serene
What came next...Read More

Glory-Be on a bun, and a tube of lifesavers,
What have they done to Barbara Havers?
Where is good old sloppy Barb,
Dressed in some outlandish garb?
Where's the slogan on a T-shirt,
Something like "Bare Bums Alert",
A bit of execrable Havers taste,
Boldly displayed above...Read More

Life's Destiny
Something about this nature calls to me
To set me free
Of this heartbreak I forsee

Inside, something stirrs
Though my destiny still blurs
But what do I prefer?

Should I care for a young one?
Or is that too much to be done?
Though, it seems like...Read More

Behind the mask

I’m on the synthetic stage, 
revolving my split mind, 
entrapped in polarity,
under the spotlight of contrived time,
with paradoxes I’m enmeshed.

In the drama of life,
I face some faces in plain mirror,
really reflecting the convivial heart.
I don’t perform by the prompt,
but I...Read More

A will o wisp floats by gathering dew
A mark on the page of another man’s book
A brightly coloured crayon of an unknown hue

The Elvis Concert
I dream of giving an Elvis concert,
To learn his popular songs.

Stand on the stage and sing,
"Wise man say" or "Are you lonesome tonight".

These are my favorite songs,
The day I sang to the dinning-hall friends.

There are many more good songs,
That I...Read More

We are ecological science
and con-science
and unconsciousness.

We are story
and egological storyteller
and unknown

Earth's humane act
and actor
and theologically transcendent stasis.

The dance
and dancer
and deaf
and frozen

The song
and singer
and silent
and anxiety.

The play
and player
and absent

The thought
and thinker
and feeler
and numb.

The garden
and gardener
and consumer
and starving.

and Interdependent

Frustrated Actor Slam
I studied to be an actor

And after graduating

Auditioned for everything

Yet couldn't even land a bit part

But as of yesterday

Of Donkey ass in a local production

Of Shrek doth Shakespeare

In memory, I stand outside
My parents’ bedroom door
To peek at their TV to see
An actor I adore.

It’s Kookie (Edd Byrnes in real life)
On “Sunset Strip” at night,
Way past my bedtime, which is why
I stood there, out of sight.

Who Will Be Great - I
If you look at ol’ Bram Stoker,
Irish writer of Dracula fame,
it can be quite hard to believe
that any remember his name.
At first just a civil servant,
then he managed a London stage,
doing books for Henry Irving,
a great actor of the age.
Then...Read More
