My mom lets me roller skate in the house, the new boy said.

I flew across the border, with my wings spread wide
Fear, tear and blood - was all I saw.
A little one of four
clenched her fist,
she held a flower her mother kissed.
There was anger in her eyes,
said she hated how her mother...Read More

Where men of letter fought for a better day, 

And find solutions without delay.

"Dead Crush"



Oh uplift me woman
if we were to have a 
conversation would 
bees fly out of your mouth
or just mewling, simpering 
watered-down honey
not so pristine, just soft
and somewhat 
ingratiatingly tainted
you ply uplifting
romantic notions
like an air raid 
shelter bombing

My Mother
I'm sick of the broken promises and open lies.
I could give you a million tries.
But the truth is you'll never change.
But my life you want me to rearrange.

I'm grown and I'm not dumb.
You choose everyone else and leave me numb.

"Runes"




All galaxies abandoned
within you dimensions
ancient and unfathomable
creating new raptures
borne through fire 
a desire to be closer
to gramayre glamours
gedwëy ignasia 
right handed
fiercely cast

here there is no element of water
though we flow like electricity
the mother and the daughter

All galaxies abandoned

Talking to his quite young daughter
Was sometimes like talking to a wall
To him the message seemed to be plain
But to her, just not the case at all!

So once again he sat her down
He said, "That look there, just won't do"

"Closer"



Dreamer weaves 
her golden words
like breath brought
her into a new world
each chord held 
she remembers holding 
the constellation
Virgo in her arms 
in time small windows
open midnight blue
glistening jade
they reign over her
a Lion whispering 
the oddest nursery rhymes, 
lullabies she's remembering

Premium Member THE BRAVEST BIRD I EVER KNEW
Sixteen and lonely,
a young bird, 
has gone lame,
from her broken wing,
unable to fly the same.

Happy with, 
the first one,
that shows her,
the attention, 
she desperately needs.

He bounds her wing,
but the little bird,
no longer sings,
her savior,
has turned mean.

She tries to fly away,

Etymologists hate poetry -
I have that on the best authority -
Of course the bloody rhyme's not perfect!

The Art of Dying: Water
When one ignores his own distrust, 
He gives in to a touch of straw, 
Forged from what the simple lust, 
His muscles clad in layers of rust.
Witness, my daughter, man's fatal flaw. 

He falls into the riverbed,

Premium Member Good Sad Special

A hungry beggar
or street bootlegger
a good soul senses their pain
gladly giving change
thanks and coins exchange
paths never to cross again.

Homeless foul the street
someone ought to tweet
sad souls see only losers 
sidewalk filthy freaks
without baths for weeks
street drunks and drug abusers.

As I toss a silver coin into the mango contoured fountain, a lilac laden tone
that reeks of flower garden ether archly probes.
