Angel Light
I stood in awe as she alighted like a bird upon some branch,
Belisha beacon to the abyss bound  clochard.
Bonfire for uncanny scion  adrift,
 ignited by her
incandescent eyes.
Chanteuse  of Arcadia  on song and sound.
Halo at the crossroads,...Read More

Keep me confined 
In high or low dark chambers,
Scare me,
Scald me,
Torture me if you will,
Rid me of my awareness this cannot be,
My memories will persist,
My desires too
And my struggles,
So long as I live.
This is the bane of being alive,

Too ugly.
Too tall.
Too nice.
Too small.

Too talkative,
Too confident,
Too mockative
Don’t call.

Too broke.
Too negative.
The bane of my life.
Don’t credit them.

Too flawed.
That’s relative
To the human race.

Though out of breath,

Muscles contorting,

The sisters would be green with envy
I will show them
yes! Gato can get to the acme

Money, money, money, the bane of our existence
First, you see it, then you don't, only exists by persistence
Perhaps a figment
Constantly mimicked
Not really real, too quick to be real, I need assistance

My head’s in a swirl
So much on my plate
But I’ll give this a whirl,
To prove I’m so great.

Like tea from a cup
I can always drink more.

Replacement is a mark of worth

Griselda's Revenge
We had a garden gnome named Griselda
the bane of our small bungalow

but one day he mustered the nerve

The Land Of The Lost
Come we will an the road is open,
Come we will an the door swings ajar,
The land we glimpsed longing from fens afar,

Unto the gate we shall be holpen,
There with ye forever spar.

Lifelong discrimination as lowest man on totem pole
Born shackled with globe sized
yoked millstone around my neck
rivaling the world Atlas shrugged,
or outsize boulder Sisyphus

eternally obliged to toil uphill

Battlestar Galactica pièce de résistance

Simultaneously analogous twin tower

In Case of Insanity Eat Chocolate
Stirring in the bed,
Three o'clock in the morning,
The Sun still sleeps,
My good-wife lays a-bed--asleep--
But, I must stir.
A feeling, a vibration, an irritation low in my spine
Speaks to my legs, “Move!”
And they obey,
They—fruitless in their movements,
They—churning me not to the supermarket,
They—moving...Read More

Online brothel, living borrowed time.
