Premium Member Autumn is Here in all Her Glory
Crows, bats, witches, haunted houses, goblins, ghosts and me
Pumpkin bread, corn pudding, warm caramel apples my way.
Delicate intricate spider webs between my house and garage.
Holding me in a delighted way on an October day.

Stringy gooey gritty globs of pumpkin slosh...Read More

Celibacy
crispy emotions smogged sans thoughts
dripped solutions damping draws 
on the innocence of the naked ape 
bathed her in flaws, flap-doodles create.  
 
A stride.  
Moistened feet pasted 
prints on fractured lips  
on the terrane tried

Premium Member Soot
Soot on LA highway signs. Billboard of you,
a real estate agent. All endeavor slides
toward inertia, extinction, forgetfulness.

It’s very tropical. Vegetation invades
the house unless constant inputs of joy
apply. The scientist in you feels the

great ape in you. The great ape feels

My favorite ape-ette just called me her favorite ape
My silliness has finally been recognized my mouth is agape

iMirror
Give the Ape his vice, electric device;

TOY DISPLAY
Blissfully reigning in his monkeyrium
Over his stuffed ape and monkey collection
My special child boasts of dinosaurium
That display his toys, subduing extinction.

Behold him linger in his edenic haven
Oblivious of echoing meow-arf-arf sounds…
“Oh, how good God* is with His grace-proven”
Thus saith my...Read More

Banter
If they have to point out it’s banter
cus you didn’t realise it as banter
As they left no clue it was banter
The simple fact is it’s not banter

Premium Member IN THE BEEHIVE OF STRUGGLE

Freedom, like truth, is far from being
a virgin; abused, raped, polluted and left
to whither, die and decay. But these two sisters
ape the wind, water, and soil of Mother Earth:
Eternals.

The wind may die down
but rises up stirringly.
Water evaporates only to become

Ape
Hairless 
Ape.
Thinking 
Ape.
Eons in the
making.
Struggling to
understand.
Understand its
place in things.
Understand how
It came to be.
Understand what
being even is.
Time passes
ideas arise.
Competing ideas.
Ideas on all 
matters.
Waring ideas, 
establish power,
establish 
dominance.
Ideas held high.
Held high
as ultimate truth.
Naked Ape
just out of
the wilds
yet 
convinced about
creation, 
convinced about

Pine needles ape ice cycles
glowing in the misty rain;
the cold air periodically
sneezes a chilling wind.

What little snow that remains,
clings to the hillsides—except 
where little flowing trails of water
mark pathways to the waiting river.

Passing the snow-covered cemetery,
plastic flora gives colorful applause...Read More

Monkey
I know a monkey 
At the zoo
Big fat lazy ape
You make faces at him 
And he'll throw faeces at you.

Sonnet 38 'I Write So Often Of My Wife, Because'
I write so often of my Wife, because
She was a fire-bringer to the World.
And everywhere she went, went Peace, like gauze

By all the winds that blew against her...Read More
