Mush-mellows and Cream

Sweet cream and butter, 
sugar, milk and eggs, 
the treat to eat, 
and no one knows, 
the secret. 

“Mush” is a funny plant, 
It flowers in strange places. 
Where hearts cry, birds lie, 
and the truth, 
is well...Read More

a young boy asked me once
if ketchup could run
would it eat mustard

and if mustard could turn
would it burn
if left in the oven

and if ketchup wasn't read
would it be a book
and can you put mustard on honey toast

now I'm so sad

Morning Dew
Sun rays fills me with warmth
Reflections of the sun reflects my thoughts..
Life twisted with turns..
Curves and winding roads..
Avenues of fear..
Lost in a stream of confusion..

Reaching for the stop sign..
Dived into a dead end..

Early morning dew appears..
A soft wind blows as...Read More

Sometimes looking into the past, you wish, you wish that some memories wouldn't last.
When it rains who see your tears?
Life! has taken everything and give very...Read More

Catacombs that surround never freed never found,

Morality that does mound accountability to astound.

Tortuous thoughts of their kill cryptic cries in their spill,
Scurrilous within their skill ideological...Read More

Premium Member The strange tale of Ingleburry Lane
In 1878, a gent carrying a cane,
Walked at 6 o’clock, down Ingleburry Lane,
A cobbled street, parading horses and carts,
Where gas lights are placed fifty yards apart.

In 2019, a gent with a phone
Walked down Ingleburry Lane, all alone.
Past the coffee shops...Read More

The people 
thousand angels came from beneath 
they attacked our axis 
by unpleading our culture 
making our way back windy 
delivering a platform of invasion for others 
tactically they prove unknown to us 
leaving us to thrive on the undefined

South of our border has become quite a joke
The world is smirking, can't understand this bloke
Is he really for real
This ordeal is surreal
It's as though Donald some weed he just smoked

A Bridge to Better Days
To that one soul reading this…
whose problems seem abyss.
There is a bridge to better days,
where sunshine still exists.
To discover the way,
and a warm place to stay,
isn’t hard to recognize.
If you’re searching for clues,
that will help you get through,
they might be...Read More

Premium Member East End, Where the Toughs Hang Out
If you want to find out what it's all about,
Go to East End, where the toughs hang out;
Where street-smart girls, their skirts unfurled-
Through the wicked streets whirl.

Nights down there-always stark,
Hipcats smiling in the dark;
And the sun shines down through all...Read More

Your words and gestures reflect
no measure in your aloof eyes
to soothe my pallid insecurities.

I flounder thru perception errors
as you voice feel like grand favors.

I wish to know love's florid flush
in confidence blooms clearly rosy
not cloudy tenders floating doubts
where you repeatedly...Read More

My Christmas gift
Dear Santa
It's been a year since I last wrote to you
Time, so like a river flow,
Went on its way,
Pulling me and my raft along with it
Causing me to enjoy my ride at times
And nearly drowning me in its currents
At others!

Such longing, love, might draw one nigh;
my fear is you will turn from me.
I am not free 
to dance in flames that burn so high, 
consuming all I am, 
then spit my ash upon earth’s floor again.
