Premium Member Hit My Head


While getting up from my big easy chair
Lost balance, fell on my head, no problem there
Actually did some good
Brought back my childhood
My head is the best place that I'm aware

Poetry
the Big Easy
going down 
on thoughts
Where are 
the real 
Strawberry Kisses
Silver Spoons
daily tasting their
game of Twister?
Where is the 
LIFE
coursing like 
sex through the 
veins
pumping Love
out onto a 
single
neverending 
line on a page?
The world’s 
your stage 
Sapiosexual

Big Easy
Magnolia-honey air, heavy with heat
Kudzu vines twining, knitting the city
Spanish moss masks the old hoyden,
and she manage to think herself pretty

Shutters, and fans lazily turning
keep the suffocating heat of afternoon at bay
Lanais and balconies, sanctuary given
Folks resting until it is...Read More

Joey Fatone

You don’t wanna meet Joey Fatone 
He’s a Jersey Devil
with a Tasmanian attitude

Street whispers say, 
“Baby” is a notch below
asylum certifiable

A wise guy, gator gait    bad to the bone
Known to go postal   ...  ...Read More

The time is fast approaching
We'll be on the move once more
Our life has had a number of chapters
Wondering what's next in store

I'm filled with great expectations
Can't imagine what lies ahead
Really hope things don't turn nasty
And one day I wake up...Read More

Premium Member A Rash Act


It's 3 A.M. and here I sit, my ass in my big easy chair
Did I hear someone say insomnia as at the ceiling I stare
You pretty well nailed it
A rash act will commit
Like setting the house ablaze or running naked...Read More

Never Not

Growing up, one thing my daddy told me,
day in day out:
Don’t you ever be no ne’er do good never not
He said, son, don’t be someone
who never know what they’re talking about,
Someone who’s always
talking out of both sides of their mouth

Here I sit in my big easy chair
Getting older by the minute, losing my hair
Still got the smarts
But those big old farts
Are making it hard to concentrate I declare

Je t'aime Beaucoup
Written By:  D. Collins 11/17/15

Let me bring ya’ll back to what it once was.
That sweet, Gumbo flavor on the tip of your tongue.
We had The Meters, Chocolate Milk, and Fats Domino.
Louie Armstrong and the Irma Thomas Show.

We had music,...Read More

Walking down the alley behind the buildings on Royal street the Mandevilla and Jasmine vines line the sidewalk calming my stressed nerves.  The sweet fragrance of the flowers intoxicating my senses.  My luggage left behind, I don't need...Read More

everyone had eaten
by the time he

plates cleared
left-over’s
boxed
Cabernet

no poised apology 
guilty neurology
condescending
cheek kissing
with suave

Started drinking fruit flavoured water now
Not the tastiest but I'll keep trying, I vow

In the winter months I always seem to gain
Inactivity is the culprit, exercising's a pain

When I walk, it's much more like a waddle
Sure don't resemble a Givenchy...Read More

The City That Care Forgot
In da Big Easy
sipping on our Hurricanes
wandering to who-cares-where
Pass an old court-yard
Meters playing 'Cissy Strut'
Funk echoes down Bourbon Street...

*Art Neville (The Neville Brothers) was the organist and founder of the Meters. 'Cissy Strut' was their biggest hit. They reunited for...Read More

Steamy, Sultry Night in the Vieux Carre
walking slow, oh it could be called dancing
crowded with Bourbon Street night people
music filling the air, we stop every so often
wrapped arms around each other and swayed

firing up to the already hot-blood New Orleans
seems to affect all the out-of-town tourists...Read More

Woke up this morning, looked at the clock

Bleary eyed, thought it read 5:23

Way too early... turned over and went back to sleep

Woke up again which seemed like 10 minutes later

The clock read 7:42

Thought for a moment in my stupor

Holy crap!...Read More

Anything happen while I was gone?
I asked my dear Cathie today
Was sitting there in my big easy chair
When off to dreamland I strayed

Met some very interesting people
Marilyn, Elvis and Liz Taylor

Watch for Pickpockets
Watch for Pickpockets

By Elton Camp

The prospect of a trip to the Big Easy
Made me more than a little queasy
I’d had visited in New Orleans before
And now the danger was even more

It was because of the unease that I felt

Premium Member Your Easy Chair
The broad view that I have from your big easy chair,
Has not really changed so much since when you were sitting there.
Mount Baker still stands tall; she hasn't blown her top.
When she steamed away, I've heard you say, "Some day...Read More

MonWhat?
Every time I tell someone
From out of state
That I'm from the state of Louisiana
The bottom of the map
Automatically they assume
That I am from
The Big Easy, the Cresent City,
The Birthplace of Jazz, The N.O.,
But my answer is No.
I am from Monroe,...Read More

When others sleep 
I lie awake
Waiting
For night
To become day.

Rubbing 
The sun
From my eyes
Everything I 
Tried to forget
Comes back
Like an angry wave.

Hearing about the hurricane
And the neglect
I went to New Orleans
Barely knew the place
Only what I heard
Creoles and Mardi Gras...Read More
