Sappho Translations
Sappho fragment #155
translation by Michael R. Burch 

A short revealing frock?
It's just my luck
your lips were made to mock!

translation by Michael R. Burch 

She keeps her scents
in a dressing-case.
And her sense?
In some undiscoverable place.

Premium Member Boa Constrictor and Anaconda
Boa, Constrictor and Anaconda were out on a slither.
They saw some animals up ahead, yonder, some hither.
I’ll get the baby.
I’ll get the hayseed.
With greedy appetites all three snakes were a quiver.

Love is the cacophony of life,
the stillness of your lover’s breath in sleep,
the boa constrictor hug of a grandchild,
and the outstretched arms of Christ.

On the cusp of stepping into your promised land

Enjoining you to cling, to hold on for dear life to the hand
Of God where your boundless choice

Lies in wait to reset your bearing and course

Cottonmouth America
bite the asylum-seeking refugees
at your border entry
Let them feel the hard enamel compassion
of your diamondback speech
Rip the children from their mother’s loving arms,
then take their daddy’s protective pride
and cast it aside
Give hard candy charity
to the forced orphan babies

Like a boa constrictor
Coiling round its prey
Cutting off the blood supply. 
Negative emotions slowly
Squeeze out all life.
Agony and anxiety
Ultimately kills hearts.
Life is extinct.
Don't worry yourself to death....Read More

A fountain of dryness
Deserts flow cloud belly to the arid brown.
Inside the fountain, the bottom of zest,
The penny lay await, eye wide, no dreams died.

In garments to her knees
Duchess of Fountain: the town of keys,
An elegance...Read More

Without its presence no life can sustain

As air roams freely from command

Poison ivy of assumption
