Falling Leaves
The leaves whisper in the trees,

They crackle like fire underfoot,

They spoil and rot,

The color of their skin turns,

As they die in a brilliance of color,

Their crumpled bodies lay sprawled across the grass,

Waiting to be collected and put in body bags,

Stuck on a hybrid labyrinth race track in undue course

Crash helmet cracked under the raw tempo of stagnation

Chequered flags waving but a motor running against the clock

In reverse and the traffic prohibits pit stops for tyres and fuel

A snaking mouth sloughs two spines;
the rattle of vertebrae.

A woman learns to ride them, feels
the trombone slide of a dragon’s tail.

A man lifts on tip-toe
not wanting to fumble.

They knit lusts to opening prayers,
cadavers to body bags, 
close a gnash of...Read More

Premium Member Back in the Hippy UnHappy Sixties
When I was in high school,
late 60's,
we were concerned
about the ballistic lose/lose climate of hate
in Vietnam
and spreading across the U.S.

The only smiling winners
were purveyors of ballistics
and their transport vehicles.

Mistrust of an unfederating nation,
bought and sold elected
through polarized competitive marketing

I woke up on the outside 
of earth somewhere floating to the moon 
I was pissed last night I had no

I Remember
The soldiers gathered at the wreath I remember.
The coffin covered just beneath I remember.

The poppies at the corner store I remember.
The amputees the coins were for I remember.

The fighters flying through the sky I remember.
The trail of red to catch...Read More

Lot of money being made in death sales,
plenty pints of iron-copper deposits
Body bags coin-wrapped
are rolling out of the blood bank sin-ters
to the holey pocket hospitals

Everybody knows the 911 cellular bar code:
Zinc life is an Alloy toe tag,

First person shooter,
on a hate tour of duty,
swinging a bullet sling blade
Buying a death row ticket,
worth fifteen minutes of fame
First person murder shooter;
womb-to-the-cradle-to-the-grave robber,
using your Automatic Revolver
to solve your anti-social mental problems
Sharpen that sling blade
on a coroner grindstone wheel

Men In Black
In a Florida prison
From the small slit of my milky plastic window
I watch inmates not convict's, hang the razor wire they fall into
And then are beaton by the convict's for their
Cowardly behavior.

There are no river's here at the edge of...Read More

Horror Love
You are gluttonous, wrathful, and frigid
I’m always watching you, even as you sleep
We're killers with murderous instincts
I’ll annihilate all that hurts you, spit on their low life headstones
We’ll fill the grave yards, my psychotic sugarplum
Floating on surreal beams, you never...Read More

Doctrine of Death

Open the book of wars,
tally up the numbers of the dead
Close the doors to the peace talk room,
have no one record what is said
They don’t want you to hear about
the sacrifices that will have to be made
Somebody gotta die for...Read More

Bells from church to cathedral rang out the chorus of screams 
in every street echoed the cheering death of millions

Premature Cremation
A sliver of bright light
seeps into the darkness
Echo of voices reverberate inside my head
I'm in limbo,
I can't move
Am I alive, am I dead?
I don't feel any pain,
I don't feel much of anything
But there's a sense of dread foreshadowing me,
an unease...Read More

The Dying Grass
The thud of the chalk duster 
Scatters the young minds
Of the dying grass

The lessons they rote like mist
Rolling over mountains of screams
To muffled ears 

Plastic bags of white powder 
Clouds so many innocent dreams
Into body bags

The school gates open
To the...Read More

Balloons and Bags
How do we save the children who get high?
With each passing day they slowly die.
Huddled in corners with balloons and rags.
Breathing in futures containing body bags.
These are our children, who we love and hold.
Its their pain and confusion that has...Read More

The Battle Cry
The bridge is long, the lake is wide,
the trees are bare, they’ve lost their pride.

and so it goes, as Winter shows its face,
the bears asleep, deep in some hidden place.

snowmen stand tall, in neighbor’s yards,
inside, the elders write Christmas cards.

great leaders sup in style
tete a tete, haute cuisine

perfectly pleased to preen
as common soldiers while away
the quick moments of their lives
until the final stanza

bullet sandwich breakfast
shrapnel pie for brunch
body bags for supper

Each one is wonderful
Born a little too soon or a little too late

Hunger and wars are their daily routine

Six Seasons
Lonely as the contact
Silently the phone rings
Umber is my stomach
As I sit all wound in stings

Far away was the country
That sent me on this call
I know you know I am here
And wanting away from it all

When I told them no
