through the streets of Ames.
I seek to know her better.

My little girl has now grown up
to enter a new life of her.

I could still remember her school days.

Premium Member Math Class Hell
Did she say time numbers or prime numbers? 
I was sure it was not rhyme numbers. 
She is staring at me. Miss Johnson, math teacher.
Takes daydreaming in class as a personal affront.
Her eyes narrow. I yawn. Bad move.

Premium Member We Lost Her in November
She was a doll
Always wore a smile
Her laugh set fairies on fire

She was the best
We all loved her
She had cancer though
She was only twelve

We made a large card
To send to Mayo Clinic
Where she had been for two weeks

We all loved...Read More

Premium Member A Unicorn in a World of Gargoyles
Zebras. Monkeys. Lions too.
Decorating every corner.
Gorgeously done. 
Not the approved way,
But a gloriously new classroom
With a fresh teacher with crazy ideals intact.

She was a bit too cheerful.
Too open. Too friendly. Maybe a small-town girl.
Not institutionalized at all, not used to...Read More

Two serious girls with long dark hair.
Enter the school office loudly and proudly. 
Their voices are shrill.
Their eyes are huge.

They are half carrying a classmate.
He is their charge, and they are taking this job seriously.
The girls do all the talking...Read More

Victim Or Guilty
A victim or guilty
Who are you
Who is to say
Because they are too.

You might think you are innocent and sweet
That you never hurt a soul
But you never know anything
It's like a deep, dark hole.

Everything seems different 
Everything is strange
Everyone's out of...Read More

I beseech you, my "crushes" so long a time
To read this poem-epistle with heart-beat's chime
Elucidating that I treated you both as "boyfriends prime"
Confessing my puerile grime.

As his boyish grin resembled that...Read More

Lost early on his father in the clutch of cancer
Destitute family cart mother was forced to pull
Clouds of trying times in the void sky he saw gather.

Sheila dressed carefully, greeting first love in fits of anticipation,
Amid glittering disco ball promoting twenty-fifth year class reunion,
Drum master is at play, thumping Sheila’s traitorous heartstrings

The murder of my elementary school? No!

I used to love sock-sliding around those smelly wood polished hallways.

My Claim To Fame
I went to school with a famous girl
Many years ago
She wasn't nothing special then
Bit snooty as it goes
She played well for the hockey team
Goalkeeper at her station
But clever as she was at that
It wasn't her vocation
She was middling at maths

Fate full of fetish
Living being, tell me,
What do you do? When fate comes,
With tail in the air; head foreword,
Then picks your neighbor
The classmate; workmate
Up to heights they go.
And now, left low; but capable
You do not qualify to go
Because fate full of fetish
