For Anil Sook DEO
Here lies a small brown man, maybe average, with heart, mixed
Sounded and spelled AMERICAN, spoke always of Africa
Loved words, could not communicate career choices

In noting his non-American marriage would hurt

Premium Member The Child Smells
The child smells
Like cat urine only ten times worse
His classmates shun him
He reeks
A police officer arrives for career day
And recognizes the smell
It is not cat urine
It is methamphetamine
This changes everything

Premium Member Motherhood and Employee Britches
Like a parvenu with new found riches,
I had to adjust to the new thrust of
wearing both motherhood and work britches.
But unlike riches with pleasure twitches,
my changes gained me pressure stiches!
I became a day and night thriving,
gotta getter-doner energizer
conquering to-do lists...Read More

Pure victory
Is a clean win important? 
And does it matter if it doesn't? 
That's my problem: 
Are the damage my words?

What do you have now? 
And you're no longer in debt,...Read More

Neighborly Distances
From a neighborly distance, the drama of a life's finality unfolded
A man named Mient. Once a well-known construction-scientist
When we became neighbors at Christmas he was a double amputee
Both legs taken by diabetes, then a man of his own ethnicity
Challenged him...Read More

Writing till I am out of ink
When I feel empty
And the world gets hefty
I write to fill up the emptiness

When the truth is like a mystery
Explained by a spiritual verity
I write to remember the truth

When joy is too short for revelry
Lurking by the corners is misery

They are all around for those who listen.

Miners Dog
High home summer hill

Straining, sucking, sitting

Staring, stopped and stick-

A pit-prop tight and gripped.

The trees across the valley

Much higher than he can go now.

I pant to reassure him

In time with his withered eyes.

His tongue, tombed gritty green

He’s faithful, though he’s fading

Bones...Read More

It's amazing how lazy people
make up excuses for themselves
it's never their fault 
when the work doesn't get done

the power of girls
lies in the back door of gossip
they gang up in teams
gossiping destroying reputations

but play the innocent when caught
it wasn't me

Folklore to Global Galore
Folklore being our culture
Heritage and traditional couture 

Gets limited by its geography
Never flies out of its topography

When it is translated globally
And interlocked mutually

Local language just goes global
When translated by English Royal

Let's translate all local lore
To take it to the global...Read More

Friends rightly choose Poetic form: Contrapuntal Poem

One can’t be surrounded by negative minded friends;
Needs to choose friends with right frame of mind.
Some friends will criticize your thoughts unashamedly;
If you guided by unwanted advice, you’ll not make attempts.
So called friends intentionally spoil the mood to act right;
Neither...Read More

Premium Member You've Come A Long Way, Baby
Women's Liberation has been long overdue,
Its history is shameful,
Women treated as painted dolls,
Pretty playthings
With neither brain nor will,
Marriage and child-bearing their lot.

They did, however, have "accomplishments".
A genteel young lady
Had to be proficient in music and art,
But not be a "blue...Read More

A friend is not a friend

Sometimes friends are like 
Important yet worthless in 
certain space, 
When the going gets tough, 
They are in need not indeed 

I have seen them 
Through the tiny spot of my eyes 
We share dreams and aspirations
But jealousy lives...Read More
