I Kept On Walking
Of an august-like, autumn day:

I kept on walking
Bespoke in dust-coated
Check jacket,
Check pants,
Polo-neck jersey ...
I rambled destinationless:
A la les sapeur - 
The gods,
The directors,
Were focusing on me - 
Me the starring only
As

I kept on walking
In all my sartorial glory, consciously
Deadened unto...Read More

All ablaze those summer days,
And such sweet scented flowers!
Glorious gardens and sweet bouquets,
Summer madness in fragrant bowers!

Harvest the grapes and pour red wine;
Whispers of soft, sweet memories...
Burnished autumn days are so fine;
Wild winds scatter love's debris.

Before the sunrise, there was...Read More

Summer rain, melting Arctics
and the lipids lining the nerves
in your brain. These are the metrics
of our times. Mere resolve

is not enough to take care
along the highway—you need wheels and prayer.
When you realize there’s no there there
that’s a scary day. End...Read More

On Georgia Roads
August 1947
Laying hot tar and sand 
Swarms of  mosquitoes
Broiling summer sun
Warm water tasted cool
Low pay, nasty job
No job, no pay
Endless stretches ahead
Laying hot tar, sand, 
Sweat and self esteem
On Georgia roads...Read More

Living is something we take for granted,
in a moment it can fade away;
fleeting is our very existence,
every tick of the clock is a precious gift.

Vasamuseet
In August, 1628,
A Swedish warship sailed,
Yet on her maiden voyage
Every safety system failed.

The Vasa, tall and narrow,
Was too heavy on the top.
She teetered in the wind and then
She couldn't seem to stop.

Her trip was 20 minutes;
It took just 5 more...Read More

Journey: A Race to Rest
Laugh is my inner sense to
sense this senseless world
goal of winning is not a goal to
but just to make myself mold

refresh button is laughter and 
sleep pills are those pain
everyday life is journey and
love life and rest is to gain

DISARRAY

Did I ever say that inside my eye;
That I’m not feeling well no not at all;
Behind my mind I see swirling colors flowing
Floating projectiles of reds, oranges, and grays glowing;

Which in no way should be behave, streams of Disarray;

Seasons
I love January when Jasmines blossom
little sapphire buds unfolding fragrance.

February makes us laugh with a leap
yet so short it makes women talk less.

March marches  as song of the summer
yet clinging to what left of the winter.

April lingers in cold...Read More

With Bated Breath

Walking up the winding path
inside the cemetery where my family is buried;
the path leads me through the oldest parts, and I recall
haunted stories of childhood.

Breathless, I walk faster and whisper a prayer;
another turn, then another, oh am I...Read More

Bordering on insanity
Bordering on insanity

Im bordering on insanity
 It's an intrusion on my mind. 
A confusion of winding paths 
As I venture into the darkness blind. 

Not knowing where to turn too 
Not knowing which way to turn. 
Just a misled track...Read More

One morning in August
 
It is early morning, but the petrol station is open
A man stands outside drinking a beer and smokes a cigarette
Not for me to be critical; he needs it to face the day

Arthenia's Birthday
Today would've been Arthenia's birthday if she hadn't died.
Last year, I lost my aunt and my uncle lost his bride.
Arthenia died in 2018 and she was born in 1955.
She'd be celebrating her birthday if she was alive.

Arthenia's life was saved...Read More

I've forgotten how to love

Won't you please...return them!

You are the only, love I've known,
And now, you've left me here alone....

it wasn’t deep

it was just a gentle push against the skin
enough to silence the demons

Aged in baby boom
pink and blue
toxic rattles

Love us
Love our generation.
Raised on Punch and Judy punch lines,
Kennedy tears,
King’s dreams.
Who stood,
Short, sightless,
Mingled in knees among the hot August freedom crowd,
Lanky and long in Levi’s

Our parent’s peacetime pleasures.

The Beast of August
The Beast of August   

It is gone — the beast of fire
has broken its spine
on iron storms.
We recover in dry walls.
There are ashes to be cleaned.
Some argue the date,
the precise day,
when the burning circus
finally rolled off
the pitch and...Read More
