Hidden Hand Inurned
Snake oily palms
got a-plenty 
under the table plans

Synthetic sly reptilian smile
bewitching many
Picking pockets with a hidden hand

Real filthy lucre fingernails 
have the zircon gluttonous glow
that enticingly Endora sells 

Dirty laundered money
boa clutches 
that unclean epidermal soul

Those cobra soundbytes ain’t adder...Read More

Premium Member THRU MARITIME MILES
Thru maritime miles of minions in motion
We hedge our opinions while pledging devotion	
To serving the Captain and sharing our smiles
Through barrels of onions and flea-bearing trials

But even the pirates who pose in a rumble
Are learning the merits of those who...Read More

Coming Out
Fluttering Blue Banners
Pink & White long behind
Hidden under the tiles, an adder
Teeth sharp as rock we’ll surely find

Large smiles and new energy
So young blooms breathe fresh air
Into lungs defeated by entropy
Feeding grins once diminished by a glare

How music lulls us...Read More

Premium Member The Sum Of It
Some snakes are called adders
And I know that's true
Most adders are very good at sums
Others can't add up to two
This must be a worry
For adders who can't add
This could make this type of snake
Both miserable and sad
Cheer up little adder

Declension
Man’s intrinsic apathy's negligence-justified frown
Is the actual defining substance of a mortal clown;
Who with hollowed prejudgments fellow men slays,
And likens to hallowed duty his thoughtless decays. 

He is evil's meekest martyr by doom's onus bound,
The cold-blooded outlaw donning dark's lucid...Read More

Blue Adder

A cool blue-gray, no longer than a foot,
it caught my scent and froze in its glide, 
its shiny pronged tongue flickering
like two flashing flames.  I stood my ground
just as fast, if not faster, the two of us 
seized in...Read More

Tales of Idolatry
Do not weep do not mourn
Do not move like a pawn
Back into his tight grasp

To his venomous pranks
Oh the fatal bite
Delivered so trite

You too, Naja Haja, tossed

“50 Words for Poe: Automata”





Haunted eyes of an automaton
the monkey grinds his music
outside the Magic Theatre
Harry looks on

"For Madmen Only"

He enters of his own volition.

Boxcars he rolls
Double Sixes! the Macabre Maestro
conducts his orchestra
Hermine still sings

A Golden Chrysanthemum
amongst the Black Tulips

Unnatural Selection


“Boys will be girls,
and girls will be boys”

Utter false parenting
The power of impotent suggestion
by the ignorant immature

God made the male and the female;
and at birth,
it’s womb evident navel plain to tell

Gomorrah girls will be Bela boys

Changed genitalia minds

They have recognized their problem
They are planning to rest the crisis
They are fighting not anymore

The doctor says I am deranged
And I've been in a fog of late
But in deranged, I see words
That could have sealed our fate!

Ouroboros Morals

Cottonmouth America
bite the asylum-seeking refugees
at your border entry
Let them feel the hard enamel compassion
of your diamondback speech
Rip the children from their mother’s loving arms,
then take their daddy’s protective pride
and cast it aside
Give hard candy charity

Baal-peor Revisited

Fork in a rattler tongue,
knife in hooded cobra veiled hand

We always gon be here,
forever a Jesus thorn in the enemy’s side

The Night Love Invaded

I hear those footfalls
on the floor marked only by footprints
of demons and the exiled muse and silence.

And your voice calling a name 
I know is mine etched on the walls

and the owls on the...Read More

Quien sabe su nombre,Ars Poetica
I saw him in my dream
Or my dream saw him.
Girded in instructions,
Sitting opposite as a timed
adder. Listening to my glottis
spray,enchanting words elating
his heart and whipping his ear.
Diverse heads held many heads:
Head with debt and some deposited death.

Savages In Faith
In life have i come to realise,
In the progression of moon and time.
That many a believer bought by blood,
Are still tossed around like nods.
Many professed to have been in faith,
For decades,centuries,even from birth.
Seem to feed on milk still,
The strong meat...Read More

Beauty
Beauty lies not
in her eyes:
Fair eyes like the winter's brow,
beckoning to eyes,
arresting attentions.

Beauty lies in the heart:
What does she say?
Her words contrary
to her actions?-
A dog in lambs clothing.

'Abundance of the heart
the mouth speaketh'...

indifferent moor:
Looking mild like the...Read More

How About
How about one day,
You sleepand you wake:
And your web is no longer existing,
And your phone is no longer active,
And your laptop wouldn't work.
And you lover wouldn't wake.
And your legs wouldn't walk.
And your pet is no where to be found.
And you...Read More

Roman capital punishment,
crucifixion morphed into 
another raised gravity depravity
