Max is five and bossy beyond compare.
Stand there, he orders me. 
No. There!  Right there!

I am the pitcher and the outfield. No surprise.
Every time he misses...Read More

Contaminated on the news of a bat,
or is it just a distraction?
Really are we even looking at facts?
Opposition controlling the images we see
never wanting us focused on changing history;
Awake as we scroll by in a daze

Opposites Attract
When we were single, what was it they said?
That 'opposites attract', something like that.
But being young in love - we charged ahead
and learned just what they meant right off the bat.
You liked your bacon crisp; I liked mine soft.

Still, you feel I am alive :: Luc Bat

You walked in woods with gun.
Oh! must be a great fun; yes it

It acted fast, no frown.

Premium Member Keeping Order
On a back porch the feline sat
watching a busy sewer rat
while overhead a flying bat
diplomat of their habitat
observing preying pussycat
had to get even tit-for-tat
squealing he warned that sewer rat
it took off like a scared bobcat!

Was it a bat?

A gentleman glows anew with pride

Masterfully a gentile spaced his words for maximum intensity.

Oh the Horror: Vampire Poetry
Pale Though Her Eyes
by Michael R. Burch

Pale though her eyes,
her lips are scarlet
from drinking of blood,
this child, this harlot

born of the night
and her heart, of darkness,
evil incarnate
to dance so reckless,

dreaming of blood,
her fangs—white—baring,
revealing her lust,
and her eyes, pale, staring...

If looks were death
