Long was the run to live
On a May day;
Running in the corners of the living world.
A Female antelope,
Led it's way to a stream nearby
To wet it's broken feet to safety.
Just now had a fight with the mighty.
Running to a safe...Read More

When roof beams have stored old suitcases
and collected dust through generations
Timeless quality genuine leather, with respect for craft
// The faithful suitcase was packed 

They hide secrets about unknown journeys
With salt water in the blood vessels, aboard on the steamship
Smell of...Read More

A cowboy don't need no plushy pew or a rantin' preacher,
Pontificatin' from his pulpit aerie as his spiritual teacher!
He gits his religion from (to him) a more gratifyin' source,
Cherishin' God's Great Creation from the saddle of his horse!

Many think that I'm going on vacation,
when I go thru hiking,
backpacking where the deer and the antelope roam,
but I am not at all going on vacation,
by any stretch of the imagination.
The truth is I'm going home....Read More

Oh, give me a loan
So I may buy a home
Where the mice and the cockroaches play,
Where the odd and absurd,
Is always preferred,
And the flies drive one crazy all day.

Apologies to the deer and the antelope....Read More

Across the Prairie
Winds blow, soft, insistent
knotting my hair, tugging my clothes
begging me to run, swift
and surefooted as the antelope.

Rain falls, tumbling down the
hillside, filling the creek
until its swollen currents roar
by, banks overflowing.

Feet pound the earth, blindly
seeking solid footing, pushing
past the pain, pressing...Read More

My dog, Duke, is anxious to go, I can tell by the wag of his tail!
The soothing sound of creaking leather is music to me,

Rap Diss Unwrap This
The fact is you rhyme 
like a flatulent behind

and time isn’t indication you climb

Smell of fresh mown grass
Brainstorming, concentrating
panning... for poem
idea shattered brew
tilly by deafening seasonal
greensward cutting crew
contracted throughout summer to mow

leaves of grass
every Tuesday, which drew
attention toward fragrant aroma
seeping into nostrils
of me - match hew,
heavily negated true

quiescence courtesy ear splitting
soundcloud of driving
mowers even moo
ving bovines would

When impossibilities happen
Cockroach sat on heap of dung
Cock sat on the cockroach
Fox sat on the cock
Cheetah sat on the fox
Antelope sat on cheetah
King sat on slave-man
Baby came, to sit on king

Arrest, detain, interrogate”
Security guards, shouted loud

Marking deep footsteps 

of a youthful antelope

along thickened woodland--

earth's glory is replete

with a creature in motion.

The best I could hope for was a lame or weak animal, 
limping along, not able to catch up with their tribe.
My cubs are hungry, and they like fresh blood meat.
A young antelope or gazelle would be perfect!

An elephant wore pink pyjamas

His Destiny Wed
In the song of the antelope,
  the Prince heard his Queen

Now locked in a convent,
  her beauty unseen

The tower still distant,

Just one point of entry

The mist in the valley

Back in the height
of our pre-millennial military-industrial

we used a Reservation Model
to dispose of hopelessly disabled aboriginals,

Down through the greener woods of Uma,
Through the lions’ den to the green mamba’s palace,
Near the dik dik’s habitat,
As the antelope took off to escape the rage,
Of the approaching leopards whose paws protruded,

Upon the trees were vultures the street sweepers,

The forest had enjoyed a magical transformation.
Dusk had ushered in the firefly brigade.
They lit up the pond area like tiny LED lights.
I could see they were excitedly motioning to the faeries.
Although I do not speak fire-flux, I recognize the aura
