Erstwhile his skin was beautiful as an obsidian, with great markings alongside his face, as was the likeness of the Benin people; an imagery so poignant and meaningful.
His shoulders were wide, his back strong and his mind resourceful.
In his quondam...Read More

My Book With A Forward
Bored Praying To My Lord

Had been sitting around very bored,
When I started praying to my Lord;
Cutting saws;
A lost cause;
Help me write book with fine forward.

Started receiving a lot of static;
On the fringe,
Of writing binge;

A night in Venice (in sotto voce)

Moonlight shimmers over the Adriatic sea
Stars dancing on the waves in perfect symmetry
We talk of ancient adventure and gallantry

Masquerading dancers begin to fill the street
Smiling as they parade by, shuffling their feet
Unconsciously, we both...Read More

corrosional clam creates calm
Talismanic turbans trade togas. How great. Short grin large grin. Big beam. And now an elephant in baggy trousers dancing. Peachtree waving. Chutney calling. Tantric trade. Tanks. Till not a tailor. Traditionalists trumpeting. One six zero. And a purple patterned...Read More

The Sublime Dream Of A Wealthy Merchant
O Serenissima,*fabled city 
guarding the bluest lagoon, remain
the Queen of the Adriatic Sea;
on a gondola I glide while
the gondolier sings to luminous stars.

Under bridges of moonlight,
mysteries increase by the dozen;
standing on the Bridge Of Sighs,
a fair-haired girl leans forward 
blowing...Read More

A Poet
In the tower of poems
Singing about everything under the sun
His eyes like the Adriatic sun
He travelled with beauty
And danced with it
Till the end of life
Till the end of love

Moonlight was the only light to make streaks across
a sky full of suspense which even a thief was afraid of;
and as I dragged you along lamp-lit, narrows streets,
we seemed two ghosts wearing human masks...
but what was on our delirious minds,...Read More

the rain falls hard and the puddles rise deep
your interest in me is faltering steep
I try to make the difference by splitting it in two
but my heart hasn't the strength mentally due

the energy sails quickly down the floodways
your pace keeps...Read More

Creativity given to a pen
moved by a thoughtful man,
divulges ideas with a steady rhythm...
not minding noises, just writing what pleases him.

Find him dreaming on a deserted island in the Adriatic Sea,
laying on a soft blanket woven by patients hands;
see him...Read More

Wading in waters
Tainted as Mexico's Gulf
Yet creek bed shallow

Flaling in waters
Murky as an old river
Qualms rising chest high

Drowning in waters
Falling like Niagara
Adriatic deep

Drifting on waters
From a self-inflicted wound
Atop bundled sticks

Crossing the waters
With ripples of her blue funk
On the horizon...Read More

be with me
Guns and knives,
parties up all night.
Say you have nothing to lose.

Girls in short skirts
who don't care what you're worth.
You only want whats bad for you.

I wanna love you.
Be with me, be with me.

You have plans too.
You'll leave me, just leave...Read More

I'd like to see Venice,
the city of eternal peace
to which poets and painters flock;
the sunset' hues are impressive at dusk.  

I'd like to ride in a gondola,
and admire La Serenissima
while the venetian gondolier sings a familiar song
that everybody loves...row...Read More

Spellbound by the shimmering moonlight by the silent lagoon,
the oldest witness to every lover's secrets in enchanted Venice,
whispering soft words, afraid of being stolen by that stranger
who could be a wanderer or an intruder...
the dry leaves, beneath the drooping pine...Read More
