Autochthonous

It’s pronounced aw-tock-thuh-nos,
a mouthful you’re not likely
to come across or hear spoken 
at the family dinner table 
or with friends at a local bar.

Unless, that is, you’re Greek, 
then you’d know it means 
someone or something 
“indigneous,”  “endemic,” ...Read More

Premium Member Cock-a-hoop

Burst of brandished flaming arrow,
Thump of bunnies against my chest,
Cupid’s straight pointer did narrow,
Continue my family crest.

Squawking souls of birds in my nest,
Potent from moonstruck bolero,
Crescendo of lust’s citrus zest —
Cock-a-hoop’s sunstruck sombrero.

The Great Writer's Fate, Part I
My name is Bedford Schiller-Smith,
and you’ve probably seen it before
on the book racks in airport shops,
usually just inside the doors.

I’ve made a career of writing,
tech and spy thrillers are my bag,
but if you don’t’ recognize me,
you’ve certainly heard of my...Read More

The Adjective Cellar

Nestling smugly twixt pepper and salt
The adjective cellar begins its assault
When carelessly picked by some epicure
Who sadly considers himself connoisseur

Once the poor dinner guest flips up the top
The words tumble out, they’re awkward to stop
They bounce on the...Read More

A Place We Call Love
Winter with you snows proposals
and promises crunch under foot in autumn
bursts of colour on park pathways; 
orange into red into yellow.
Summer with you spouts kisses, wet with spit 
on a teenage first date. There’s no drought here.
Spring here blossoms in...Read More

Memorial for Electoral College
Memorial for Electoral College

An adjective to describe college was electoral;
Did decide to kill it and then create memorial;
Finally at last,
By has passed,
And end result of this proved to be historical.

Electoral college has definitely been in favor
of a Republican President.
