He keeps trying his barrage 
of raging vitriol, but it's a blunt knife
on his target's alligator skin

A predictable high school bully
with the same ol' lines of attack.
His target always sees them coming...

and the invectives inflict no pain!

The bully sharpens the...Read More

Hawksbill, common musk and spiny soft shell.
Loggerhead, Atlantic green, alligator snapping
Turtles are we, in every country we dwell.

The largest sea turtle reaches eight hundred pounds.
A leatherback whose love for jellyfish abounds.
Alligator snapping is one fourth of leatherback’s...Read More

Alligator
A tale emerges between bar nuts.
His brother eaten
in his own swimming pool.

“Alligators are stupid,” he says,
“they’re vacant
like a tiger with a lobotomy.
You don't see alligator heads on walls,
do you?
There's no way to mount
that dumb fricking grin.”

Neither of us laugh.

Dreamscape
A deep pit, a crumbling edge,
at the bottom, a pool swarming with sauropods.
There is someone, a boy.
I shouldn't have taken the child here.
I'm slipping, taking him with me;
he won't let go of my hand.
We are sliding on the scree.
A gun...Read More

my breathing quickens
waking me with a start
I bump into a long fat slimy thing 
a tongue?

I reach around and discover it is much larger
in daylight, scary.
in the dark, shocking.
bumpy, and unbelievably cold and rugged

what are you doing up here? I...Read More

The Alligator

The alligator may not be wise but is no dummy,
he knows other animals were made to fill its tummy.
And many an unwary animal, less than alert
has acknowledged this truth as a belated burp.

Burying Superman
“Never give an inch boy,”
a drunken uncle once told me.

It sounded like a spell
to ward off vicious dogs, rabid priests;
any jackass or villain with crooked eyes.

Superman is a plastic 3-inch-high figure,
a talisman I keep in my jeans pocket.

yah, I took the red pill

while the distance between bad to good

meant nothing other
