Have Gum; Will Not Travel

Forget it! I am not going five thousand miles just
To be bored and homesick. No. 
And what am I supposed to do there, besides go broke?
What am I supposed to be looking at anyway?
Why must I...Read More

Premium Member Collaboration with Love is found in your soul
Yes, I am collaborating with me myself and I, lol

Yes but, without the rich 
No jobs could be found
We would be starving 
Without one bite to eat

So let the rich be rich
And the poor be poor
Lets see whose soul
Will make...Read More

Homeless, Mister, can you spare a dime,   
Been like this for a long, long time,

Trying to do the best that I can. ...Read More

Premium Member the crowded pavement
In this hurried, crowded, chaotic world
Many broken and lonely people are hurled
Silent thoughts invade their mind 
Loveless, Unwanted they trail behind.

Can you hear the silence in this crowded place, 
Do you even slow down, to look at his face.

Premium Member The night that Lutie Mae McDaniel sang the blues
I was on my way to Nashville,
Planned to be a country star,
The Grand Old Opry was where I was meant to be.
I drove across the Mississippi,
Stopped in Memphis for the night,
And that's where fate stepped in
And changed my destiny.

I found...Read More

I woke up this morning
Two hours after Noon
Had little bite to eat
Went back in bed quite soon.

So..thank you very much,

Never up long enough

Winter love
She doesn't want a boyfriend, she wants a winter love
She's on the prowl for a man to give her hugs
She's going to steal his hoodies and leave him cold
This is the saddest love story ever told

She looks and smiles and...Read More

god's pockets

are they smartly tailored in Saville row
individually measured by a dickens man
climbing up and down a ladder to reach the jacket
bows, tugs his greyed fore lock and always 
scurries like a mouse on his route

never a uniform not my...Read More

Disheveled and dirty she sat 
A guy walking by just spat 
It caught her off guard as she wiped it away 
Wanted to move but decided to stay

She looked forlorn and beat 
Begging for a bite to eat 
I approached...Read More

67 Anno Domini
Written on papyrus in the presence of different entities,
Thousands words written in Egyptian on a stone slab laid cryptic piece,
Dreaming realm of hallow wrath plague ridden disease,
Helms, spears, and tyrannical vengeance no apostle increase,
If the missions complete and the village...Read More

I heard it on the radio as I awoke that morn:
The message in a simple song that Christ the Lord was born.
I heard it once again that day as I drove in my car
And tried to find a...Read More

City Sighting
Saw a pigeon pecking pizza
On a local urban street.
I assume that it was cold, but still,
A tasty bite to eat.

What a mingling of icons
Of the New York City scene – 
Most ubiquitous of flyers
And most common of cuisine.

But what would...Read More

Black Candles
One moonless night so long ago, I met him at a club.
     A stranger on the dance floor and me, a helpless cub.
The music swelled as I consumed the gaze of his dark eyes.

Immortal in death
I am a transient soul
from beyond the fields of stars, 
Past the domain of darkness
where a sublime quietude reigns,
onto the cusp of a celestial spectrum
where zenith and nadir meets.

When did I ever
want to live an immortal life?
When did I ever
yearn...Read More

The Art of Destruction
She sat there waiting, patiently,
Assured of her success,
Indifferent to the certainty 
That she would cause duress.

She'd spun a trap so beautiful
It seemed a work of art,
Its gossamer perfection
Like the poison in a dart.

My bird's eye view allotted me
A close-up of...Read More

Love Potion Number 9
Wearing thick glasses
and braces on her buck teeth,
Professor Harriet carried
her pile of books while accidentally 
stepping into the wet cement,
going into her lab to go wash up,
afterwards she decided to work 
on a different kind of experiment,
tired of feeling nutty,...Read More

In a Pickle
All alone and wanting a bite to eat,
she made herself a special treat,
but needed the finishing touch,
and that was to add a pickle...
all the while thinking,
they can be very fickle...
Grabbing a new jar,
trying to screw the lid off,
she twisted and...Read More

Staying Afloat

When doors close, there's more to it than denying you access to what’s inside. We often think that what’s inside is something we cannot live without.
So we feel disappointed, disillusioned, dispossessed, disabled, depressed.
Sometimes, we are overwhelmed, feeling shut out, as...Read More

Premium Member A View From A Window
The dawn unfolds beyond my fractured windowpane
and breezes tease while drapes, like serpents, slip aside
exposing worlds that race and run aground, insane,
displaying scenes obscene that savants strive to mask and hide.

Outside, the streets are stark (last night they seemed so...Read More

They ventured in to Amsterdam to have a little break.
Alas it all went very wrong when they tried a slice of cake.
Before that fateful moment it had all gone very well,
Dinners, walks and seeing sights – and then they really...Read More
