(insider trading)
Written: by Miracle Man

Our minds are assaulted daily by political tune,
by infiltrating our minds with the same tired old song.
Consolidated thinking they attempt to attune,
by promising voters "stuff" their careers they prolong.

With insider information they make stock trades,
information that...Read More

Fallible Fate Fostered
wet wits bruised
gaunt gifts glued
callous crest cruised
vying voluptuous views
dark dances drool
punctured praises puked

wanky wastes wielded
damped dribbles processed 
pulpy pills possessed

sassy syllables etched'n
tactic trail, tensed
hanker hoisted, rent

fallible fate fostered
dripping damped clusters.

Hen's Wings
A pair of blue wings is hovering
against the inky black covering
within ‘Little Fox’ constellation
of Vulpecula designation,

portrayed with stipple sidereal
in Hubble image ethereal,
‘Hen two dash four three seven’ labeled.
A hen with fox is Aesop fabled,

except it was really a crow

No need for yours truly to dig deep,

Refreshingly cozy chill September aire
Cold front brings August respite
upon cusp of autumn quite

relieving spate of dog days of summer
seasonal crisp balm appeared overnight

Aesop Would Be Pleased
This is a fable, yet the truest of stories,
And yes, there’s a moral to this allegory,
Scientists in Athens had thought for a while,
Who is the prettiest in all the Greek Isles?

For thousands of year, the winner, of course,

School bag, blue shirt, hair parted on the right,

In a Wood by the River's Edge, a found poem
In a wood by the river's edge,
flat and very full of trees,
with banners flying
and no misgivings,

brothers Thomas and John
and gallant Aesop,
at song and in praise—
"Good pillage!" Beer and biscuit.

Their fleet— their raft,
a sail of a biscuit sack.
An afternoon, idle
near the...Read More

Friendships do Sink
Drowning in labels

The cellar is his bleak repose,

in concert with the cockroaches and flies;

there he wipes his runny nose,

toils the day long, sunshine tries,

insinuates through rough and crumbled boards.

Lessons can't assuage his conflicts,

the bottom of the pile, his heritage affords

turn left to make a right turn
storm in the air and loud thunder

Improves upon the amount of time it takes you to conduct an opera that

Thought cops wouldn’t determine,

Maybe he should have used his socks.

Another Crossroad
Another crossroad.
Invalids weep when 
wearing another's
soiled diapers suddenly 
In spite of the battered off-chance -
from a despondent interruption;
I'm the exposed exception.

Coarse fingers bleed.
My wheelchair spokes 
are hardly friendly.
I proudly bawl when no one 
can see me bow my head

Without a wish in my heart
I stare at glen's pinnacle.
The end of the yellow brick road shakes my weary hand.

Without a knot in my throat
I gaze past a forgotten dell's innocence.
The beginning of a backward's journey has just begun.

The Rook
my mind is an open book.
read it and have a look.
"Open" said Crow.
"We near the brook"
"Stones are there and

Love the journey... it's the
Mother of all invention.
