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

She was working...
It was such a pleasure to see her
She was kneading the bread, with such an ease
To make the dough pliant and smooth with her hand
Not a hard task at all, if you are experienced enough.

Show my tears of joy on that perfect wintery morn
Go and show my parents our tiny new born son
Snow flakes fell like confetti on the day that you were born

Predictable
What were the odds they did not know?
So many, many years ago, according to the records 
they had left in there, it seems the answer was, quite low.

Chaotic Cherub
concentric circles clouds 
mushy mists growl
tainted tarred twain
epileptic ensconced spray
rustic rims raved
adapting aura's aid

mystic mood swung
lurching lousy lust
taming torpedic tongue

callous Cherub called
vile veins' gores
dripping damped draws

scrunched syllables smoothened
haggard hierarchy heightened.

Schmooze me darling, my appetite is rapt.

Earth's perennial health/pathology contests

Slowly at matriarchal pre-historic first,

I could change my mind
about adopting you
no more than change my heart's content
about what is healthy
and what is diseased absence of integrity
and what lies somewhat uneasily in-between
within my contenting patient bicameral mind.

Could Be Combination of Each Reiteration
Could Be Combination of Each Reiteration

What we found was certain combination,
Considered contained in each reiteration,
We needed to use,
Without any abuse,
Successfully adapting to every situation.

The Way I Am
A casualty of a personality similarity, apparently,
though it's not apparent to me, 
maybe in a parallel reality with unparalleled insanity.
