Wearing Red Hot Pants
It was the school semester of 1971,
I was a volunteer usherette at the university theater,
in order to attract more people for plays,
our uniforms were red hot pants and white blouses,
we seated the audience including wives and spouses.

Older women who attended...Read More

Oh, how we loathe those who drink,
Such sinners, such losers, they are!
But we think we certainly are far more than perfect?
As we drive high on pot, drugs and booze zooming our oh, so saintly cars?

We stamp their foreheads with big...Read More

The Sea and Beer
The sea was in a beer swilling mood.
Peroni guggling in frothy blasts.
Swirling, white and foamy, cool gulps hitting the back of my throat found my feet and shins and knees. 
Pulling back sucking my feet into sandpits, playing for fun....Read More

THE CORPSE
THERE as still and quiet as dead.

Sleeping...?

Yes.

The walls had grown used to the scene.  The dreams tired of the same actors with different faces.

The dead take care of their own.

The corpse lit the room's lamp and in the gray...Read More

Premium Member The Dance Of Love


How does one describe true love
But a feeling deep down in our soul
Intangible, a mystery, a true enigma
Just actors playing a role

It's why the world keeps spinning
Billions and billions of times
A truer truth has never been uttered
The ultimate of feelings...Read More

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.

sleepless again
Sleepless again
It was a night without sleep
I had seen the movie “The Jacal.”
Twenty years ago
Ripping stuff!
Then I went to bed and saw the movies again.
Scene after scene
So young, the actors were.
I liked the inspector the best, he with a bushy...Read More

Pretending the roman’a clef is fake
We portrayed bits of truth in every take
Director and author got into spiff
Author threw up his hands and said “what if”?

Protagonist was not camouflaged well
We knew him for sure. A child could tell.

Premium Member Day of Silver Sunlight
Strange shadows had dappled this earth,
On a day beautiful in utter stillbirth!
Moonlit at noon-sun eclipsed by the moon,
Vastly, crescent sun shadows were strewn!

Then the breeze assumed a sudden chill,
At the pause in ancient ritual thrill,
On May the tenth, nineteen ninety...Read More

So, it starts years ago, with protests in the streets
People allowed to lay on the road, block traffic
Then, start fires, attack police, as they’re told to stand down!
Criminals with 18+ offenses free to roam as they please
Thousands others were released...Read More

Spider Fires

When we are beaten on not once, 
but over a course of years, 
a thing happens that occurs...
and sometimes but not always, 
goes away. 
Most times, 
we do not live long enough, 
for that to happen. 

It is the...Read More

Stuck in the middle
Heaven’s above, Hell’s below,
Purgatory’s in the middle, 
Guess what’s on the menu,

Yes actors and entire cast,
Props and stars of their show, 
Entertaining up to the last.

"My decision
is not any negative reflection
on you.
It's not personal."

This would be a Business School graduate,
meaning, if it is personal,
then it is not political or economic;
