Pearly Whites and Sleepless Nights
Betwixt and between and with vigour it seems
That we brush them with scented jelly,
But the breath that ensues from the
toothpaste we use and thus
Determining whether scented or smelly
Our peers will decide on a kiss or a hide,
Depending upon status of...Read More

Eros
The sublime chorus of voices
Bring out a shamanistic praxis,
With brevity displayed,
With bravery supported.
How do you dance with your own destiny
When you are betwixt and between?
It becomes a sequence of inwardness,
And askesis of the will,
It manifests itself in resistance
As a precursor...Read More

Stranded on an island named Must,
In only God, did the poetess trust!

Her poetry danced betwixt and between
the moon and the shadows.

No fancy imagery, as she was still leaning!
But in her heart was a deep yearning.

And those who can see, far...Read More

OUCH THAT HURTS
Drifting dreamily 
betwixt and between 
just before waking
as dawn slowly breaks 
a tranquil place 
I love to be 
stretching gently 
my legs from sleep 
when
suddenly 
my peace is shattered

a morning ritual 
begins to descend
unwelcome 
unwanted
it truly is no friend

I scream...Read More

Family Matters
As a society we are wrestling with the issues,
Of how best to Provide for our children.

Should the state play such a big part,
Should we set up charities that only focus on children,
When the whole family is dysfunctional,
Are criminal gangs and...Read More

Hypnotransit
One good ear to the quiet pillow,
one bad ear to the unheard fright,
between, one step from the waking
or sleeping door to the end.
One for the price of two,
clutched with the value of half.
Two eyes toward the edge of light
or sealed...Read More

She likes half and half
I like full-cream.
I take my coffee black
her's is half milk and cream.

She's a bitch and a half at times
Living the half-life
in half-light, betwixt and between.
With flag at half-mast
always regreting something
never going the whole hog,
never taking it...Read More

These are the good times
These are the good times.


Betwixt and between, lovers caught in a quandary;
Do we fall in love forever?
Or just remember each other fondly?
What will be will be, but oh!  What might have been…
If we only took a shot in the...Read More

A Cockamamie Diagnosis
n a life with many valleys
and a few mountaintops
Alvin has met many people
he thought were normal 
and others he thought not.
If a man enjoys people
their stars shine in the sky  
from different angles.
They are all wonderful,
Alvin tells everyone.

Passing through the jade 
green understory of yours,
discovering your 

forest-like body; 
betwixt and between at last 
I found my abditory.

Amaranthine
He kisses like dark skies
Bewitches with dark eyes
And rains down upon me
A mad, storm-born love.
In the wake of him
I am lost betwixt and between
Reality and the illusions thereof.
He shines with blood and fire
Impels me beyond desire
To a realm out of...Read More

Form of Aalysis

Best thing to do is analysis of an analysis
People were provoked causing a paralysis
Within is where we should always begin
Betwixt and between over and over again.

Then find subjects to be highly correlated
For great results should be congratulated

In the starlight evading, 
On the crease of decision,
The New fallen justice,
Lay dormant and yet...
All potters and priests,
Suckle tragic enigmas, 
And wait in the aisle, 
For alchemist treats. 

In the starlight evading, 
From the genuine flesh
These potters and priests

will her lust cause a scene?

She cared not, and blew him a big kiss!

Heard the term “outside the box”?

What box are they referring to?

Sitting in my jammies at my computer

Don't see no box, do you?

A term you hear a lot these days

What can it possibly mean

This old guy is totally confused

Ghosts of my past
The past is always
the past
I often forget it
but it remembers me
everything I failed to be
yesterday is history...

The past is a ghost
a hole, dust, the wind
it is dark and moves unseen
beneath, betwixt and between
angels, demons, elemental spirits
come to me when I...Read More

Pass
Gatekeeper to the compost pile
the boatman for the river Styx
I'm trying to cross the last mile
adventure's done, I'm calling it quits

Shadowed Charon silhouettes the dark 
lowly murmurs, "You got I.D.?
a passport, something of that sort,
something with a picture to see?"

Sweet and Salty - for contest
There once was a king who would eat
Exclusively things that were sweet.
	His chefs were at fault
	If he tasted salt
So their spicings were very discreet.

On the other hand, there was his queen,
Who favored a sav’ry cuisine.
	She liked her food salty

Now Is Mine

Like all of the great, enjoyable weather
Which we both can enjoy together.

By birds, they always would beseech
Us to spend more time at the beach
And wish we...Read More

I’m sure you’ve heard of the Great King Arthur and Lancelot’s well-known fame.
But there was yet another knight, of great glory and great fame, never named.
His name was whispered constantly, everywhere, around those hollowed halls.
For no one wanted to be...Read More
