My Umbrella

It was the reason
for everything,
that had any value. 

It started with rain, 
on a Sunday morning. 
It moved to the car,
that would not start. 
Then there was a man, 
a stranger,
an unexpected hero. 

He stopped when no one...Read More

Sitting in the office…
of someone, 
I rather not see. 
To talk about things, 
I rather not say. 
To hear, 
what does not need,
to be said.

I am over 18. 
I can vote, 
I can drive. 

I can leave.

Who Are You

What is your name?
Is it a crime to speak it out, loud?

Will someone come, 
from somewhere to here…
because we are too piercing, 
even as we whisper? 

The name of God. 
The holy name of the Lord. 
Places they...Read More

Stolen Life

The years of innocence 
were short. 
You were not the mother, 
You should have been. 
Yet, I forgive you. 

Things were worse, 
as the ripples, kept washing up, 
on the shores of the sea..
“The Sea of Forgetfulness”!

A Big World, A Small Place

Frogs in a small pound, 
battle over flies.
The competition is intense.
Sometimes there are not 
enough flies to go around. 

Leaving the pond is hard. 
The unknown, the outside, 
the dry place between here,
frog heaven…

Strikes the ground, the tree, 
and me… in the heart. 

She left last night. 
The clouds gathered all day, 
So I should have expected it.

Are Socialists Human Beings
Are socialists human beings?
Do they need food?
Are they capable of goodness?
Do they deserve to be tortured, starved, abandoned, beaten?
What makes a socialist cry?
It isn't sad movies -- or is it?

Why should I stop hating them?
I have the right to punish...Read More

It will be okay.

^WW^ is also a jigger
They don't come any better
He jigs from dusk to dawn
He's a real 'go-getter'

His many friends love him dearly
Especially Curtis and Charlie
A bond of love and friendship
Like bikers love their Harley

How can I express, 
something that can not be written down,

Nobody is nothing

The law,
