Cat Independence
Cats are amazing critters!
Of course, all cat lovers
are well aware of this;
so, it is not to you
whom I speak. But to
those less furry among-st
us—to those less inclined
to seek a warm lap and
shamelessly purr to the
heat and is to
you whom...Read More

The Crossing of Contract Bridge

“Get back in that queue” screamed St Peter
As the throng looked on in dismay 
With the shuffle of feet, on an impatient street
It was destined to be judgement day

There was no alphabetical order
In an air so full of impatience
The righteous...Read More

Premium Member Oliver, a Boy
When I was young my mother's hand
Led me through a joyful land
Where neither war nor hate exist
Nor something more I must resist 

Where nothing but the night is black
And black is never dark for lack
Of something bright or greater light
But...Read More

Pardon mine allegiance to infidelity
Unfaithful marital transgressions
self admitted indictment,
crime and punishment,
no longer think high lee
entailing no mister re: demeanors,
I searingly weathered

(George by bushed, albeit thankfully,
no unwanted child left behind),
nonetheless one unforgettable
indelible, execrable, and abominable
professedly owned his
civil warring battle of life

transgressions undeservedly heaped

Premium Member Sweet Slumber Of Nip-Laden Dreams
Ah, sweet slumber of nip-laden dreams;
the milk of mother moon bestowed, 
a blessed drink and lactose-free
to this mine humble, feline throat.

Running freely through outer space,
I touch upon thy blessed universe.
My home of emerald and lapis lace,
is where in I lay...Read More

Sea Rage
rootless on sapphire seas
tides dishonored then begrimed
a keel eroded, relentlessly thinned 
barnacles disguised with time

drifting toward dark horizons 
battered and barely alive 
distant isles beg an appearance
pleading I arrive

beyond the rotting corpses 
mired and run aground 
anchored in the muddy...Read More

She opens the DSM-5 to page 666,

It explains the scars on her heart,

then she would need to accept her own nature

Changing Views

The coffee in my cup is bitter, 
like the bad taste in my mouth. 
I have been up too long, 
to take back the night,
as the morning has come, 
and it is bright, 
beyond my dreams. 

I have searched...Read More

Between underwater stems
Among the muddy water, the shadow of an obscure wanders,
He wants something, but he can't say it.
Her body lies among the deep stems,
And no one is looking for it on earth.
Her white legs were home to fish,
And thin hands live...Read More

Among persons known within mine barbed ken
Analogous to black box
holding untold secrets,
I share the following self
introspection with ye,
which purported hidden truths
might set me free,
albeit laborious effort

to loose constituent amalgamated
compound elements unmined
tantamount to agony
riddling psyche effort to extract
thorny matters incumbent upon me
versus tapping Androcles and the lion

Falling in love is a natural act of showing intimate interest to another person. Falling in love is normal and it, fortunately, takes no sides between men and women. Falling deeply in love could otherwise mean falling into a deeper...Read More

The Sea
As with most folks
I find the sea fascinating;

its vastness and depth
alone enough to make
the largest man feel quite
small by comparison--

Standing on the shore, looking off…
or adrift among the ripples and frothy
churning—no mortal really can
defy such currents for long... 
nor recreate...Read More

Monkey with a Peanut

This is for all you trampled and forgotten
freezing in a hell not of your making
inching your way up the ethereal gangway
jockeying for rank and recognition
among the heavens the aristocracy
the drooling two headed priesthood 
cheap seat keepers of the pure flame

The instant you were born our whole world changed
nothing was more important to us than you

23 and Me
My Ancestors slogged in Scottish bogs
Washing wool for the textile folds
And dancing with the spinning jenny’s
Apparently, there were some English blokes 
That I can count among my folks
Well what do you know and what was the chance
Someone hailed from Normandy...Read More

Premium Member Spring Afternoon
The wind among the trees,
the sun behind a cloud.
A peaceful day in my backyard
is where my soul is found.

It may not be too large,
for fences it enclose
but my whole world waits for me there
for worries there run slow.

Leaves in sunlight...Read More
