For the Haven’s advancement,
the Elite may extend a courteous backhand,
or a fist wrapped with opinion
that some may mistake for abuse.

head first into a cauldron of pride,
now her feeble corpse twitches
trying to vomit the blackest pitch...Read More

Here I am again,
It’s spring in my little hometown,

And you let me in
To your mama’s dream 
Of a house 
 And somehow....
It felt like home,

Even the lilacs bowed 
In acceptance 
Of our fleeting reunion,

Where you gave me a minute,
Your once...Read More

I found a handsome boy along the bay.
I fell in love with the boy by the sea.

Premium Member Trying to Outguess the Fake Detectives
Detectives solving crimes
Flashing their badges
Canvassing neighborhoods
Questioning potential witnesses
Explaining the forensics

Showing us how to taint a crime scene
Explaining blood spatter patterns
I sit in my chair trying to outguess them
Feeling smug, proud of myself,
Professional Lazy-boy detective.

Premium Member Oliver, a Boy
When I was young my mother's hand
Led me through a joyful land
Where neither war nor hate exist
Nor something more I must resist

And black is never dark for lack
Of something bright or greater light

An Era Lost
Deep in his heart had urgent need to go just one last time,
To place where he grew up; would childhood memories rebound?
Went with fear and misgivings; was he wise or asinine?
Step after step, he strolled over boyhood holy ground.

It was a Friday evening.
She looked at him.
She saw his slouching.
She saw the lay-z-boy bones.
She thought of the man she once knew,
now he is more chair than man,
and filled with kapok.

What? He said, sensing her look.

She forces a smile, "nothing".

You are so beautiful

Lincoln Quote For Andrea
Lincoln was a white man of his time. He wasn't as bad as the majority,
north or south, but he was undoubtedly a white supremecist.
