The Giant Nazi Spider Speaks
General Zero
the commander of the Khan imperial forces
took over the earth

was a eight foot giant spider
accompanied by two legged rats
and two legged cats

in 24 hours they were in charge
he spoke to the world
People of earth greetings
I am commander Zero

Yesterday I wrote a poem in my head,
It was a beautiful thing and made me cry,
For I have been in isolation since a man said
You have rules of when you can come and walk by..

Not one little foot have I...Read More

He Dreams
He dreams of the carousel at the park

Released like he, gambols on the boardwalk
Arabian, garden wild, hooves steel dark

Marvelous pals sport at sea and embark 
Surmount rings of parents, music, and reins
Unlimited awe in...Read More

Premium Member Elevated Thoughts - Perhaps
The little imp bawled lustily
as it lay in its perambulator
there by the water fountain
in a secluded garden
right in the middle of a concrete jungle,
disturbing my elevated thoughts
that churned and churned inside my mind
on how to kill those pesky flies
that infested...Read More

Premium Member Plague Journal at the Ides of March 2020, Abandoned
The sound of a piano playing a dirge lies in the air. It was the day before general quarantine measures were implemented by the Austrian government. That same night, for the first time in recent memory, Vienna's stars were visible.

Oh how sorry I am
To concentrate on the wingman
Who crashed on the hillside
The crash that killed Frederick
For three and a half decades I waited

To see where you fell

And died on a cold wet English moor
Your real wingman survived, just

Premium Member Of Morbid Humour
Laughed at a cartoon dog killing cartoon rabbit. Smothering it. 
Called it "morbid humour". 

Dark.

Deep. 

A hole without visible bottom that you smile at, knowing if you just set one foot forward, you'd be swallowed.

Knowing,
Death has been insatiable lately.

Has humanity...Read More

DESIGNING WOMEN
six foot tall and stout
long brunette hair cascading 
what a big bum she has

five foot three and fat
a blonde promiscuous lass
she’s never without

very skinny girl
short haired and too muscular
a lesbian indeed

a girl who’s crippled
courageous and spirited
basketball player

woman with tattoos

Planted: Real Poetry To Live By
I play with shadows
under guise of light and dark
ripened under a half-met sun
ripp'd where tainted thoughts dare run

looking down,
afleet
barren to thrust
flowers slain and seeds lay rough
all the while
the weeds won't grow

Free roaming in Berkeley in the 70's

growing up in Berkeley
back in the day
we still were allowed 
to free roam 

and so I went 
everywhere on foot
or bus

walking to Solano avenue
drinking coffee
at Peets coffee
eating Chinese food
in Berkeley’s china town

walking downtown

What shall I leave you when I leave you

Devastation 
Pain
Heart shattered 
The dying beats spilling my love on the floor 
I give you the power 
Over and over 
Where is my defect?
The one that makes my mistakes 
Sound like broken records 
Numbness has taken over
The familiar pain

Careful and Steady
Sitting alone on a knife edge
Looking each way and it’s a fall
Slow and steady goes it 
Each step you take is a danger

So you carefully place each foot
Each step doesn’t help with the next one
Sometimes the pleading for a rest

Premium Member My Father
He woke me
For a reason
And I flung
Back the covers
That blinded me
I retrieved my sword
As he told me
Who has set foot
Upon his world
Without
Fear or favour
I set about
My task
No one will tread it down
Break it
Into pieces
Without my prying eyes
And my sword

Meet me in the Woods 
Under the Open Sky,

light dripped
from the street lamp
like fluorescent dreams a-mist
fog wafting in wavy, buttery shards
her own private stage
lithe, leggy form and perky curves
fuchsia Claiborne mini-dress and black fishnets
one spaghetti strap dangling coyly
as if begging for a tug
one hand on the lamp post

Are we your enemy?

We humans
From the inception of earth
We keep the foot on the ground
We en-crouched your structure
That was our obligation for our selfishness 
Due to this might be 
You are definitely upset with us!

We are worshipers
According to our beliefs

Waves sang songs along the sea shore,

You see, all of a sudden a wave gripped onto my foot, 
Pulled me out...Read More

Complicated cancellation policy
I am a complicated cancellation policy:

You left me in the nest and flew free.
When my shell cracked I was too vulnerable 
For the world I had been resentfully pushed into.
I screeched for you back 
Until my beak rendered useless,
And then...Read More
