Pearly gates
PEARLY GATES 

If I’m brought before Saint Peter,
Put on display in a clear glass crate,
Nothing hidden up my sleeve,
Except a hammer, I jest to escape. 

He approaches me out of nowhere,
Ask him for a chat while we wait,
In a soft...Read More

When I am gone
'When I am gone'

One beautiful day
As the sun sets with a dark smile
Millions of shooting stars will mourn,  
And loved ones will drown in tears

I am strong and alive today
Smiles live on my lips
But severe pain is hidden on...Read More

Sad broken boy
When will you become a man
You try flying high
wishing you were Peter Pan
But you don’t understand 
the stuff you’re putting in your veins
 is taking you to a Never Never Land 

That pain you hold
you’ll never ever escape

"Wishing Well"




Plain Jane blew her wishes 
down a wishing well

Lit long white bless'ed candles
dipped in holy water 

Brackish 

Crocodile tears from Hell
Witches hold hands together

Stand united
show and tell

Plain Jane 
knows her subjects inside out

Sisters plain and simple
holding hands 

united

No tranquility in the morning breeze
No serenity in the rising sun
No romanticism I find in the drizzling
No love of colors wraps my heart in the brightest moon

Now venomous snake is crawling on the living paths
Democracy is now hugging the hidden...Read More

When Moses parted the waters
The mud squished up to his garters

Poems are just words?

Yours and mine and planet earths

The Crocodile Heart
The murk of crocodile skins -- which starry eyed elves wanted their soothing chilly breath at twilight?

Pluto, Ouranos, Neptune slowly burn you till every starburst of your bone calcium is returned to the mangrove lined lazy river

Your death, the unquiet...Read More

My Bleating Heart
Modern day scoffers say,
only the strong will survive
That the weak will be eaten alive
Only T-Rex,
cold-blooded logic will thrive

The talking serpents e-vol hiss, 
instincts of compassion and kindness won’t abide
Forgiveness is viewed as fleece clothing
to bear skins 
sin cloaked in naked...Read More

Crocodile Medicine
I always said that when I die,
I would love to return as a butterfly.
One with yellow, velvet dominions,
Fragile and lofty pinions.

I confused freedom of flight,
With a more placid folly of delight.
I fancied a short life of absurdity,
Rather than one of...Read More

The fates have cause once more to disarrange
Emotions and confer an elan-ectomy

Water Trance
"Silence is the general consecration of the space.'' (Herman Melville)


Every river whispers the secrets of the land

Tragedies, future-past

Set has scattered to the Nubian winds

Undeciphered hieroglyphs of the Fates

The sacred scrolls of destinies, future-past

Entering the silence of the space

Broken filaments of...Read More

The Boy is  three,  his sister, two

I can’t hear your water

Dreamscape
A deep pit, a crumbling edge,
at the bottom, a pool swarming with sauropods.
There is someone, a boy.
I shouldn't have taken the child here.
I'm slipping, taking him with me;
he won't let go of my hand.
We are sliding on the scree.

Melancholy Michael is my friend.
He comes to town and blue always begins.
We play our flutes to uplift his bad mood,
But he relishes his sadness solitude.

Melancholy Michael, so depressed.
Hangs his head down lower than the rest.
So gloomy and sad, he’s miserable...Read More
