Premium Member My Symbol Face NOT FOR CONTEST
If looks were death
My face would kill
The mirror tells me this

When I wrinkle a piece of paper
Throw it away I see my face
With eyes as blind as a bat

Hair of a bald eagle
Whats left is gray
Whiskers of a walrus

Under this...Read More

Up early and off to school I must go
Full of pep and not too slow,
That was then when I was young
This is now a new age I have begun,
How I hate them as I climb out of bed

Keep busy in this world
keep busy in this world
as a frog, jump
like a bird, fly
as a human being love
like a hoe plant
as a tongue talk
like an armadillo, sleep
as a sun, be generous
but as a Pangolin be obscure
this world of business
knows no friend or foe

five years ago,
my Model A strapping
handsome big bro,
(who sped like one

speeding Triumph font lee, crow),
wing, & swooping Thunderbird, with
bold face observers whistling Geronimo
(Holy Jeep), this meant war
whooping Comanche 
decked out as armadillo

kicking up red feathery colored dust devils

I Winter In Fallen Ash Of Burnt Dreams

I winter in fallen ash of burnt dreams
an armadillo, shell removed eyes blinded.
As time crawls on, midnight moon proudly beams
by its hollow glow, heart is reminded
this world operates with dark and wicked teams.

Sorry, I Only Caught The End of Our Conversation
Fist clenched,
fingernails dig their curves into my skin.
Heavy footprints grow silent.
I unravel my fist slowly;
like an armadillo when it knows it’s safe, 
extending my fingers out towards the stale air.
I watch as it sits there, 
in the center of my...Read More

Premium Member Short Ribs A: Gourmet or Gourmand
The aardvark is a quirky beast,
Uniquely dentalated,
And to the armadillo gastronomically related.
He dines on termites, ants and such,
Most any bug his tongue can touch,
On fruits and veggies, not so much,
Just when he's low on Vitamin C....
Or needs to be re-regulated.

Animal attraction
Be aware of the Cougar, the big mountain Cat
Now I know you like mounting, but your just a Pussy Cat
I sometimes think you’re Horsey, and like a good jump
Perhaps therefore a Mare, with a lovely Ass as a rump
Anyway, rather...Read More

Love is a true story.
Love takes time.
True love means being faithful,
And truly loving only one woman for the rest of my life.
At this moment she is only on my mind;
I hope one day to find her hand in mine.

Premature Ex

You gotta keep the giraffe standing up,

The Aardvark and the Pangolin,
Romantically, had been entwined.
But infidelity, was in the air,
Aardvark, had a new suiter in mind.

Pangolin, did challenge his rival,
The Anteater with beautiful snout.
Don’t fear for me, on your betrayal,
Sweet Armadillo, is taking me out.

Alice's House
Redbud and dogwood have blossomed
above the tulips and jonquils where
Alice's house used to be.

A possum and raccoon nose around 
where the garage was before the tornado. 
An armadillo has joined them.

Someone has hung a red feeder from
the old clothesline. No...Read More

Premium Member ARMADILLO
Roly poly armor plated,
Clumsy gated beast.
Looking for a juicy worm,
A creepy, crawly feast.

Sleeping mostly through the day,
Prowling at night,
seeming quiet, docile, shy,
He can put up a fight.

Not a trouble maker,
It's just his lot in life.
He does his best not to...Read More

          Rush Hour, Chicago

Early evening traffic's

Autos armadillo home
along the Outer Drive
as out of mouths of buildings 
people enter mouths
of anything that moves
wherever every evening
they are going. Tonight

The Seeing Blind Man And His Whispering Dog
There's a blind man on the corner
That keeps staring at me
As the dog that's sitting by his side
Keeps whispering in his ear

I know their talking about me
Cause the blind man keeps nodding his head
I'm not paranoid or anything
At least I...Read More

Looking under a leaf
In search of a caterpillar thief
Pinched a tomatoes cheek
Oh what a creepy creep

Said,"He'd come back to get her
And scare her baby sitter."

Her nanny saw her cryin'

She carries one of the heaviest pregnancies in the world
with more species of monkeys than any other region.

Old Rusty Metal Things
Dust devils harass the ground,
Sweeping up accessible layers of earth 
Stagnantly rooted in their stake 
Of vast uncaring land along train tracks in the desert.

The wind-born dirt
Whisks against calloused surfaces
Of metal things carelessly left
On the dry earth of the forgotten...Read More

Premium Member Wong Road Taken
(With apologies to Robert Frost)

Four feet to the sky, he lay
in an attitude of surrender
confessing his sins
of hunger, of greed
of slavery to his quest
for surprise, for enchantment
around the next bend.

The Armadillo found
that life sometimes slings
death and destruction
and the road not...Read More

The Scent of Water
Desert dust devils reign supreme
Swirling in conditions extreme

Dry, cracked river bed yawns wide
Depleted source long denied

Armadillo negotiates
Lost to his instinctive traits

He halts to sniff a draught of air
Frenzied digging does then occur

Grubbing for ants, worms or mice?
He digs a deep...Read More
