The Return Of A Poet
Now I'm back in the saddle
Trying to make things right
Thinking of my next move

Winning
Make it through make it true
Lay it bare if you dare
Banish doubt make it count
Look around you’ve made it there
Shout it far show your scars
Fill the day with twenty-four hours
This is it what we’ve got
Looks like  but it’s ours

Two Broken Souls, Part II
...“From that day on I was just a damned whore,
two years I spent in that place on my back,
when I had finally paid back what was owed
they tossed me out and they said,’That was that.’

Raging Time
Patience and length of time does more than force and rage
This I have come to learn with age
Repeating destructive patterns, like an LP skipping
Over my own radical behaviour I am tripping

Listening to opinions...Read More

Back in the saddle, a familiar old tune
Ain't as agile as when I was a young buffoon
Drove girls squirrelly
With lingo so syrupy
Talk of the town even made old grannies swoon

Zealously, she circles want-ads
Years have dashed her expectations. 
Xeroxing her application
Wishing for some vindication
Voices on the telephone, asking for the skills she's honed
Under rated, and creative
Taunt her with big promises?
Salaries that compromise?
Retirement? No benefits
Questionnaires she must complete.  Younger gals...Read More

Sully was back in the saddle
Sully* was back in the saddle 
up the creek without a paddle 
Meenie stole his hat
followed a stout rat
With cookies his hands did meddle








Sully* is Sullivan my pet simian ghost
Meenie is my cat
Both are naughty...Read More

Goodnight, Year of Change
Snow whispered unto me
"Nothing remains static"
Yet I remained completely still
While I shoveled the snow away

Second month frozen gave way to warmth
From passion, from anger
From a wealth of confusing events
And spending it all in a volcano

Burnt out in the cold
I shelved...Read More

Premium Member Real Cowboys Don't Sing Honky-Tonk Songs
When cowboys sprawl 'round the camp fire after the days work is done,
They strum guitars and tootle harmonicas and sing to have fun.
Real cowboys don't sing Honky-Tonk or She Done Me Wrong stuff.
They leave that to rhinestone cowboys, considerin' it...Read More

I should have seen it coming 
By the sad look on her face
Instead she had to say the

Right now I need some space

Standing by the open door
In her mind she's already gone
One foot tapping on the floor
To the beat of...Read More

Brick had seen his share of hospitals

When I was a child
I liked to go on horse rides
It felt grant to sit
On top of this beast so gigantic
And learn to have it follow
Commands, finding control.

There upon Marquis, the horse
That I dearly loved
I could find a bond.

With posters of rodeos thumb-tacked all over her room.

Back In the Saddle
Dancin' with the dead,
Becomin' familiar to me...
Missin' my soup pals,
That you can see,

10 days in the ward
Warding off death,
10 days never knowing,
Which might be my last breath,

There is no fear,
Regardless of fate,
It's merely a question,
Sooner or late...

You will join me...Read More

I had dreams of yesterday
I woke up with a smile
My dreams took me back 
And it was better for a while.

We had moonbeams in a jar
Perry Como was teaching us
To catch a falling star

Bishop Sheen was preaching

A Slow Sad Song
My horse is old and gray
Seen many a better day
Swayed in the back
Steady and on track

I too old and gray
On my back life I weigh
Now I slump
Still prodding along
Singing a sad, sad song
Wondering did I ever belong
