My refuge
With a cup of salt
I malt
Take a spoonful of coffee
And mix it sternly
With some hot milk mixed within
Sugar cube to sweeten the lot
Hot or cold
Coffee is coffee
Sour or sweet
Toffee is toffee
A cup too many
Once I drink it up...Read More

Prawn soup
Prawn soup!

I own the whole eatery. 
I drove miles to be here.
The aroma and warmth, 
Makes me drool to eat here.
I can never resist the prawn soup!
The spices and hotness 
I get indulged in
The sour taste 
It is just perfectly...Read More

In perfect rhythm they coupled softened rhymes

Yet they did not adhere to the script and chapter

This will be over in a flash the onlookers assured

You are lacking staying power and our approval

Self appointed hypocrits

I’ve been catching sunbeams in a little glass jar.
I’ve got nothing to lose now, apart from my self-control.
I want to set free the world and release my soul afar.
I’ve lost control of growing old.

Head still thinking sideways, but now I...Read More

A Picnic of Love
Share with me a picnic of love,

welcoming us to sit under the sweeping limbs
of the willow tree as it provides welcome shade,
I open open up the wicker basket of delights

Money isn't what you want, and I'll prove it too.
You only want the things that money do for you.
You can't eat it, drink it, it can't keep you warm,
you can't stack it around you and build a decent home.
We don't...Read More

Last night
I poured some memories into a glass 
They didn’t fill it, not at all
The bottle was almost empty 
When I started pouring
Someone else’s history
I sipped, gulped, finished it
I always drink too quickly
When I like the taste
Such a stupid thing...Read More

Premium Member midnight chime
the vibration
of the violin
fading to the timbre
of voices
upon the stage

midnight hour
slowly chiming in
as the bartender
pours another drink

her lipstick
slowly kisses the edges
as she sips away
her pain

she sees her lover
in the reflection
of mind 
with every sip

she downs another
as his face
becomes a mirage

Beloved Lord Jesus
Beloved Lord Jesus!
How I do love Thee.
Worship and adore
Thee. Pleading for
mercy.  Falling,
Falling face down 
before Thee.
I pledge mine
sacred honor to Thee.

Beloved Lord Jesus!
How wonderful fair
Thou are.  More
precious than
diamonds.  And
more valuable 
than either
silver or gold.

Beloved Lord Jesus!

Solar Eclipse 2003

Two elderly ladies anxiously looked up at the night sky, 
their faces lit by the excitement of an eclipse. 

Half the moon was about to be eaten by darkness. 
The first cold night gave substance to our breaths.

Why were their...Read More

When endless winter storms turn your mood cold
   When weary sun-less days test rugged men
When icy winds howl round you fearsome bold

Premium Member Does Anyone Care
Shooting, stabbing
Cheating, lying
In a courtroom
Truth denying
Robbing, burning
Money launder
Out of order
Drink and drugs
Encourage thugs
Children neglected
Life affected
Feeling ill
Suicide pill
It's not fair
Does anyone care?

Hot water crisis

Suddenly no hot water
We didn’t have hot water in my childhood
We had to boil water on a kettle
Pour it into a bowl, add cold water and wash
The vital parts.
It was when it was a communal bath, I discovered

Ah, sweet slumber of nip-laden dreams;

Running freely through outer space,

After Dinner

It’s tight at our table,
unknown parts of the same group,
face to face and she wants
to teach me to drink Cognac.

The waiter brings snifters and a bottle,
she mulls it over hot tea –
sets the pear-shaped bottom on its side
pours like ‘time...Read More

Our inhabited space bound by bars we drink in.

What is that noise?
I have heard it before?
In the ramblings...

I rise like the house is on fire...

but dead still. 
I rush.

Oh, how we loathe those who drink,
Such sinners, such losers, they are!
But we think we certainly are far more than perfect?
As we drive high on pot, drugs and booze zooming our oh, so saintly cars?
