"We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are."
Anais Nin.

Anais Nin's pithy observation,
Though not devoid of wit,
Cannot be termed a faultless declaration,
And I hereby submit,
For the devilment of it,
That the statement is rather too sweeping,
A generalisation...Read More

The wind whines unheeded as the rain
whips the doors. I am smug in a knit,
immune to drafts and devilment. Sane,
snuggled, coffeed and notebooked I sit

letting words waft healing through my brain.
My companions, Joy, Darkness and Wit 
bring calm and clarity....Read More

Memories of my Dad Pt 2
I remember you staring daggers at me as I ate your leftover Cheese and Onion Pie,
I remember you forgiving me though, because I’d given birth that day and in a hospital bed I did lie.
I remember the way you played...Read More

In Old California 16
Then lady's eyes flashed indignation sore!
His choice of Amapola seemed to feed
on disrespect of Patron Saint and more.

"You use Amapola for comparison, senor, but word means more than flower to me. Don't you know Santa Amapola is my Patron Saint?...Read More

    A church clock struck midnight, from far far away,
    Overhead, the pale moon was veiled, by dark clouds of grey.
    Two young boys were watching, from their own makeshift den,

Am a homeless man
Am a homeless man,
Whole world is my home,
In street, dump, anywhere,
I sleep wherever I feel;
Seek food from garbage dump,
Rag too I find in that;
For some drives emotions,
And for some lousy devilment;
Some pelt alms,
And some offend saying,

Premium Member Bee-Devilment---Hexsonnetta
Ripe on the branch I'll spy,
depriving from a bee,
the sweetest peach for me!
I baked a golden pie,
and from the hives, deny
the bounty of the trees!


One bite of luscious bliss,
with sun still warm within. 
Sweet juice drips down my chin.
I'm stung...Read More

I have her face, so I've been told, and traces of her eyes of blue  
The glimpse of gold within her soul,  I can only pray to hold, so near

As eyes go,...she had two pair, the ones in...Read More

Crow
Crow

Sometimes the crow sits beside me on his wooden fence
He acknowledges I am here then listens to the world for his own amusement
His eyes are black but alive in a sense that everything he sees is poignant
His body also black...Read More

De Profundis
I hunger,
For my youth.
For those lazy,
Hazy, crazy,
Sperm-filled days.
When my eyes
Feasted with devilment,
Instead of mockery,
Upon the young
School of nymphs
That swam up
And down the corridors
Like silver darlings
Of the sea

The wonderment
Puzzlement
Of the flesh.
Memories of
Soft bouncy buttocks,
Budding breasts
Licentious legs
That tormented,
Teased, pleased
That frenzied, wild
Stirrings of...Read More

grandma was not of this time

Sing a Song of Harmony
I think I’ll tell you all about,
the things you should not hear.
About the reason for our life,
why your God placed us here.

We’re given life to sample sin
of flesh and mind and soul,
and grab a bit of devilment
to take back to...Read More

Premium Member You Are Responsible
Amid the devilment your dimples devise,
your smile is a mile of wonderful lies.
Your eyes hypnotize, and your silences speak
volumes of verses to someone as weak
as the wreck that I am,
since, meek as a lamb,
I was caught by your charm,
doing myself...Read More

Call this country the united states

Color Poem
Green is a meandering creek through a lush grassy valley
Red is hot with devilment

Brown is basically awesome
Blue is cool as summer's love
Lavender is a soft and fragrant blossom.

Sunshine is orange warmth

Now I'm not about to play DEVIL'S advocate I hasten to say,

But even with utmost care, my ears can't...Read More

Indigo Skies
Indigo Skies
Filling my eyes
With evening shade
And mystery 

Deep descent brings
Dreams of devilment 
And dark desire

Won’t you join me
As the sun is extinguished
And the moon reigns supreme?

Pieta's Ode
O that grief in stone alone would tell
That passage from life's cross to hell
For having been born we begin the process
Of our unbecoming, a very subtle knell
Tolled on beads of faith in counter spell
All of death's exacting claim and duress.

Goblins and Ghouls
Gathering again 
of boys and girls and 
big kids too binding their fantasy
lives 
in funny costumes and
not so cute masks to
scare and trick

and maybe get a treat
needed for a sweet tooth.  But,
devilment  lurks today ...

Never on a Sunday
The Friday night pumpkin coach
That delivered you to my door,
Has come to whisk you home again,
To live, live your own life once more.

It could have been a fantasy,
You being here, so close to me.
There was some kind of payment given,
