Blue Headroom Dynamite
Like ‘Nevermore’ sketched into water by Salvador Dali
Quickly running a message up a high mast in Mali
Or Michaelangelo his genius wild, cutting a lady less forlorn
With a savior already finished with work and free from scorn
Oddyseus’ raft might have hurried...Read More

    Universe eternally unending
    expanding space infinity sending,
    vast emptiness, separating its stars

Old 'White' Men, Part II
...Poe brought us detectives on the page,
and creepy tales that defy age,
Melville’s whale, in fine fashion,
taught us the danger of obsession.
Twain brought humor and jumping frogs,
dialect, humor, and raft logs,
while Hawthorne peered into the soul
and saw the contradictions unfold.

Epic Pursuits
Back in the mists of time
Were stories sung 
Where minds in thrall by minstrels 
Were held
With tales revealing 
Viscerality and viciousness
The currency of glory and shame.

Who does not marvel at 
Achilles's pride
A ruthless killing machine 
Unforgiving 
In his revenge
For his...Read More

Appointment to have organ removed by robot-assisted surgeon.
Air-conditioned, no mosquitoes in the OR. When you arrive
You'll remove all your clothes. Naked before the ladies, nurses
Who have seen it all before. Mainly remember you're not unique.
Think about the government while they're...Read More

Premium Member Canto XXVI Hell translation part2

When to my duke right seemed time and too place,
In such a way I heard him to diffuse:

If with you in my life had merit...Read More

Continuation from previous poem

We reached the footer of a castle steep,
Seven times by walls encircled very tall,
Defended by a river hard to leap.

We overpassed it as hard ground at all;
Through seven doors I entered with these wise:
We reached a fresh...Read More

The day was going off, and the brown air
To the terrestrial animals gave rest
For their labors; and only me was there

Just ready to withstand the war at best
Both of the journey and of the torment,
Which by my mind will be...Read More

Suddenly stillness all sounds silenced  the last pirate slain.
From the bowels of the Tireme came cheers that grew louder
From men newly freed from their enslavement  to the Thracian oars

An ageing inspiration
Little crabs their toes scrawled upon the sand
Meaningless patterns to my eyes
Yet before the water like a fairy's wand
Leave nothing but the blankness of surprise
The little crustaceans had purpose in the random patterns
Yet I wonder now if they made it...Read More

The Ageing Story
Little crabs their toes scrawled upon the sand 
Meaningless patterns pinched on my eyes 
Yet browsing, the water like a fairy's wand 
Leave nothing but the blankness of surprise.
Some purpose in the little crustaceans random patterns  
Did they chase...Read More

Incanto In Furnace by Daunting Allegory
Aeneas crept into the depths
of the underground, upright
he stepped
darkly
as dead roses pressed
and she wept
(Persephone)
in the pit
(indemnity)
where shadows slept
bellowing
as bellows sing
so readily
below those mourning bells that ring
burrowed
'neath the death of Spring
borrowed
from the breath we breathe
burroughs
of departed greed
ennui ennui ennui I scream
wake...Read More

Love..
Obscured stood I, absconding the realm of dreams
Began my search, for neither messiah nor elf
Looked through my heart, into eyes umpteen
Probed for thy mirror, in hunt for myself.

Wandered the summits, skies that kiss
Touch they couldn't this heart's flight
Delved the deeps,...Read More

Love's Currents
To my Valentine
My voracious dear
Whose zest is for wine
Yet mine guise is of beer
To my dulcet amore
You're the last in regard
To my soul's paramour
This endeavor is scarred
Same as Aeneas
I'll leave this sublime queen
And love instantaneous
Twill deliquesce 'tween
No curb to my...Read More
