Rancorous bile spits from the screen like a dragon’s bad breath

Venom and distasteful acrimony captures an innocent monitor

An irritating display of malicious vitriol exposes malevolence

Vindictive malevolence achieves to exhibit a self-righteous tongue

The Thief's Offering
The police are everywhere
And barracks are empty, 
I see military fatigue, locusts
I see firearms that can make the devil blush
I see the MK 18 mod 1 carbine whose libido is famed abroad
I see the Glock 17 Semi-automatic Pistol which shoots...Read More

Levity and gravity
Levity and gravity

The weight of gravity and lightness of levity complement nicely
Like a seesaw or ying and yang they are balanced precisely
Levity may add the touch of light relief in a minuscule dose
But too much is like bubbles ascending up...Read More

Jovially, you approach life, with jokes to share.
Optimistically, you view obstacles as opportunities.
Sacrificially, you ensure safety for loved ones' care.
Honorably, you'd rather do what's right than appease.
Understandingly, you unfold patient behavior.
Admirably, you exhibit traits of a savior.

For my dear husband....Read More

Well Assured He Could Be Cured and Many More
We always had been well assured,
That after everything we endured;
Prayers said;
Not dead;
Are sure and certain can be cured.

My mind had been active again
lately. Wonder what keeps it going
and wish I was knowing where my
future was going. Anyone have any
ideas.

Glass Wall
Children 
Casually 
Consuming 
Cotton candy
Face to face with 
A deadly animal
Only 4” of glass wall
Preventing them from being
Prey

We got married
Thinking it would solve 
The problem of loneliness
Only to discover a glass wall
At the tiger exhibit
And we are face to face

Missing Pieces
Caught you in my reflection,
It zaps
My insides 
Like a sting from a bee.
It is not the wisdom you exhibit in your eyes.

It exerts the rawness of our connection.
Trying to wrap
My head around the way we collide,
The way you bring the...Read More

Less Is More


Fashion, the fresco of generational passion
keeps pace with the sprint of rushing times.
Like an art-form it makes cleaved impression,
modernity worn even if body contours don’t rhyme.

Vision blank, she cat-walks the fashion track,
dormant desire turns her to an exhibit called style.

The bowl of fruit left on the table

whose minds are weakened and bereft.

We’ve got midgets the tiniest people in the world.

She blossoms lovingly and offers sweet honey in honor of love

Bringing it on no matter what comes my way

At times overdo it and exhibit a naughty display

Incomprehensible space time continuum intrigues
Incomprehensible space/time continuum intrigues...

One insignificant, infinitesimal
incomprehensibleness cosmic speck,
who doth readily confess
swallowed within

infinite cosmic wormhole, nonetheless,
he feels mind boggled, fascinated,
transfixed... helpless to express
following concept suddenly
gripping his feeble mental compass.

I haint never gonna get
smart enough to understand

Spring is the preferred time,
for daydreams to appear.
When Summer comes along,
these dreams often sear.

But Fall is readying itself,
to exhibit sudden change.
A precursor to Winter, the blahs,
and a Christmas gift exchange.

25 light tears away
with no hope
of ever seeing
you without a
telescope

for your galaxy
and you are
more than
light years

away
but a
slow
drop

from
my eyes
to the almost
full bucket by my

feet
features
the dying tears
of a been dead poet

NOW for our
next exhibit
we have

from the poet
himself but not by

Mona Lisa Education
Educated as a young woman,
Became a teacher through choice.

Enjoyed teaching for many successful years,
As a retired teacher I received a lovely certificate.

Photographed with the Director of Education,
Received my twenty-five year pin.

We had a beautiful retirement dinner,
My youngest son was my...Read More

Premium Member Song of a Traveling Man



I flop at truck stops
hid by other sleeping truckers.
I like the loneliness.
Amarillo, Detroit, Tacoma, Richmond,
places packed and stacked
with the bad and the good.
I scoot by paying no heed,
to features, just forms,
how bodies once glimpsed
sometimes return inside of me.
Cities of light,...Read More

Talents To Be Realized
When I retired i thought what will I do with my time,
Made  friends with a handsome gentleman

Maybe I fell in love for awhile,
We couldn't date because he is much younger.

BEAUTIFUL ZOMBIES
Physically they are attractive, handsome, pretty!
Their structured bodies are just frames,
Within them sadness reigns
Those dear to them treat them like preys.

They are dead living...
Not the living dead!
Their graveyards are the frequent tree they hibernate to whenever disoriented.

You would think they...Read More

The Shoe
A beat-up shoe that’s toddler-sized
Has a sock that’s stuck inside.
We don’t know whose it was, but know
Its owner surely died.

It’s one of many artifacts
From Auschwitz on display
In the Heritage Museum*
Where I volunteered today.

The school groups come, we lead the tours;

I Am Not a Victim

I had a dream the other night
Of walking in a field of cornbread
Golden brown
Baked just right
One solid
Unbroken field

As I softly crunched my way
I looked up
Coming toward me
Was a line of tigers
With a man in the middle
No one was tethered
Just walking...Read More

Consanguinity Begets Anomalies
Offspring between close family members
not biologically fit nor ablest
even if direct immediate relations
consider themselves best
buddies, emotionally intimate, and offload
heavy matters weighing down

on their respective figurative chest,
cuz lurking within brethren and cistern genes,
and/or chromosomes dwell deadliest

Play it Loud
Instruments of rock & roll
Are showcased at the Met.
It’s closer to some classics
Than I’d ever hoped to get.

From Ringo’s drums and Clemons’ sax
To numerous guitars,
You get to see the favorites used
By legendary stars.

Elvis, Keith and Bruce,

Friend Gone Missing

I really am in stupefaction,
As to what tore us asunder.
These Hallmark cards, once a year
Infuriate me,
More than the coldest glacial thunder.

With loving exclamations of BFF
proclamations, 
Just stop your justifications!
Sadly, I must admit, technology affected
you with a humongous hit.
