Back when he was seven, our son won a contest
   In his class, his turkey recipe adjudged the best
He was so happy, floating so high on cloud nine

Premium Member FactoidMan and ShallowMan - Part 2
[Now ShallowMan is quite content
receiving FactoidMan’s consent
to quibble and express dissent
as long as keeping covenant
with fingers crossed and belfry bent
when viewing Facts in sealed cement:]

“The Facts you give me circumvent
those ‘truths’ your chuckles supplement;
although they might disorient
they can’t be wrong,...Read More

This drought and curse
Of hand to mouth;
An unrepentant encroachment of pauperism
Impregnating our back country
Our bigwigs in back country
Stand aloof
Season after season
Millions of Pickneys
Flourish with kwashiokor
A son of the soil,
A citizen of the world
Peruse no light
At the end...Read More

and always hoped my X had marked the spot?

After the Meeting
After the meeting
She no longer returns my calls
She rather hangs up her telephone anytime I call
save a few mistaken times that fell on deaf ears
causing an irreconcilable hindrance
to the constant flow of our conversation

After the meeting
She no longer writes to...Read More

...And so once more I summon
this courage to write of thy frame...
Though I wonder if this time I would
not be seriously charged for libel.
Albeit the last time I spoke of thee
just like this one the very same,
I was adjudged for...Read More

The Old Man And the Sea
© Ben Burton 12-19-2014

"I'm troubled by the humbling plight of man's mortality"
The old man said aloud while kicking sand
"Why can't we be as timeless as the soulless, salty sea
Or even as the muddy Rio Grande

The perfect painting

What worth was my work,
If I intended to cause a hurt,
Adjudged the best still a sad loser,
Model of success is beyond any measure,

Art in blood, zeal and hard work ,
All were certain, I surely will do wonders,
Yet one similar zest,...Read More

The mother carries about her jutting womb,
pains, torments, fatigue… her daily companions.
For nine months or thereabout no one relieves her
of the bulk, and the toil attached to it.
At labour she is—oh! It’s unbearable!
If a baby girl she gives breath to,

throwing the last stone
the episode took place near the sewer

his white clothes dipping in red
a rowdy mob encircled him
like vultures awaiting the surrender of a fighting  spirit
his horrified eyes gave their last look

Welcome Back Home
I will be with you tonight,
Fondly sharing the love of your beholding sight,
Embraced meanwhile by the warmth of your absence,
Blazing passion causes me to be happy,
Distance displays disputes readily promoting a fight.
Thus conflict arouses beeping conscience,
Challenges cautiously undergone spark up...Read More

Across Ticks of Losing

Menaced by a triumphant chanting of lament
Entrancing the soul of Hades’ kin
Missed eruptions of the sensory nerves
Onomatopoeic of hollow gongs 
Resonating, maimed through the indescribable facets of
Your  forgotten youth.

Where Traffic Should Be
Only wheeled things come in traffic
And not the meek earth-tilling brown hands
Coerced to stoop low, dogged to contrabands.
Spirits and bones chastised by stick,
A contract avowed played on a trick.
Now on the edge of cliff justice stands.
Only wheeled things come in...Read More

The Wayward's Road
As I stumbled on the pebbled road 
I broke a toenail and it left bloodstains 
On the humble stones.

“Why did you let me get wounded,” I asked.
A voice from behind the obsequious hills answered,
“I did not,” the voice said reassuringly.
“I...Read More

The cardinal shattered the chalice
with blood of his former god and
the men garbed in tainted white
glorified their new Son
sheer roars, juddering
holes in riot

A sword of ice stabbed my chest
My nails blackened, my nose bled.
They’re chasing me, wanting to devour my wholeness.
Until a gentle arm pulled me up.

Then I felt heaven.
Her face, her eyes, her smile, her breath.
Everything of her is a therapy—
Fragrance...Read More

The Inn
I can see it
Creeping behind the wounded paper
Fabricated in the surface of the wall
The wall. Yes the wall.
Countless stains embedded
Thousand images magnified during midnights
Raindrop stains transformed into wars
Inkblots turned into murder scenes
A dot of blood resurrected into a horrible monster
And...Read More

Privileged Feet
Damn your feet that crushed and squashed thousands of grapes in the pool!
While we only have eaten those purple drupes in our wildest dreams
And did you just say you would make wine from those feet-ground fruits?

Then Hue Lure My Being
Fill my craving with your zesty rind
In the mist of my longing, come splashing
Ingest my inn with your piquant smiles

Drizzle my windows with decorative light and
Melt your pot in that multihued...Read More
