Super Nova
Well I say, I was glad to know ya
Before the earth goes super nova

While the sun, ya she shines
Wineries and the finest wine

I don't remember there being any pumpkins there

Well, he's quite a tall fellow, blond hair, blue eyes

Carl Marx
Carl Marx
created the communist 
manifesto
he created communism

because looking at the capitalist world
he realized that eventually,
a very few wealthy 
people would control the world

well everybody else 
became slaves to their money
that's pretty much what we have now
the very wealthy

A Tragical Tale


She has a fever.
I leave her dozing fitfully on the veranda.
Halfway to the woods there is a farm gate
where she will often squat
and piss.
The grass is brown, but still thrives,
strangely adapted to uric rain.
Paris the giant poodle is here,
his nose...Read More

Premium Member Six Notebooks of Summer
Like Thoreau I sought out Walden’s Pond
For me, it was my grandmother’s field of soybeans
Lost in the bowels of a small gray shed I fancied a cabin
I stumbled on it when I was eight, an explorer, in the summer.

It became...Read More

A Milk Maid on McDonald's Farm
Incited a sense of alarm
Her grip on an udder
Made all the men shudder
And that was just part of her charm!

Premium Member A Terrifying Night
Birds seen flying together in large flocks tonight
Words of warning sounds emit as coos and cackles
Herds of cows start running toward the barn door light
Blurred together as a murder of black crows and grackles

Snow starts fiercely falling down from the...Read More

Premium Member My Dear On The Ridge
There was a dear who had a ridge that she perched from
It was where she felt welcome 
Below there was a road 
Where cars must go. 

They would be driving in singles and pairs 
Going too fast that gave my...Read More

Premium Member Intellectual Snobbery
When I was in grade school
I was, already, 
on my leftbrain dominant path
toward acting the intellectual snob.

This, in large part
my best offense,
my trump card, sadly,
against marginalizing prejudice
of our community's non-farmer economic
and political Elite;

The few kids
whose parents went to college
and/or inherited...Read More

under the trees the early mist

only next year will they need to be oiled

And she knew this was no way to end a night on the town 
“Why did you dump me onto the Garden floor” 
Which made her four-legged love come back from the in-gate...Read More

Premium Member Clark Came Courting Loralei
Loralei’s green eyes flickered in the dark,
Noticed by males, especially Clark.

She captivated him in every way.
He reminisced about her most of the day.

Truth told, she was totally unaware.
Of his bold prowess, and that he did care.

He came courting and met...Read More

Ruby Farms, farm of the sunset,
With a blooming riot of roses,
Is at the shadow of indigo night-
The hour of the deepest color!
The hues are intense as passion,
And darkly fine, as aged wine.
Beautiful, sweet violets are
Blooming near vine clad wall.
And grapevines...Read More

The Stars and Moon had long been friends
    But this was set to change.
As the Moon just up and walked away
    Moving swiftly out of range.
And what was left was dark and void

Premium Member From Iowa Farm Stock
I come from Iowa farm stock.
We are healthy. Built on big feet.
We do not complain. We keep going.
We work in blizzards ignoring them.
We walk into mud up to our crotch, to save cows.
Hard work is the answer for everything.
And prayer...Read More

It was Solar eclipse that weak,
Strange things suddenly unfolded,
All the animals began to speak,
But my wife was dumb founded!

Nearly twenty years and a nine,

Not a sneer, not...Read More

If my mother says her pain is a ten, it is a hundred.
On a scale of one to ten.

To be strong and stoic

Taught to keep her feelings to...Read More

Standing on a cliff, overlooking the ocean
   Waves roll in, lapping up against the boardwalk
Toward the horizon gulls soar, occasionally 
   Swoop down to scoop up a small fish...

The rhythm of the ocean's pulse

Age
As time and space stretches its vision,
the experience creates different decisions. 
While inquisitive has still its sphere,
the idea of old age draws near.
Whatever said by poets and sage,
the consequence of time is measured by age.
The waning and waxing of many...Read More

Beef. Potatoes. Pie. 
If not that, nothing.
He would not even eat.

Lasagna? No. 
Spaghetti? Eye roll.
He would rather eat confetti.

Beef. Potatoes. Pie.
That was my Dad’s idea of dinner.
An Iowa farm boy, he wanted these three things at every meal.

Except breakfast.

his hunch found trunk light kept lit,
