Oh little gnat


Hovering like a gnat that finds a face irresistible
Swatting frantically does no good as
insects will be insects and annoying is part of their plan

As it seems each day you find a new offering unfolding its wings,
buzzing about with your dirty...Read More

Suicide is real

Suicide is real 

Building up
Desires of 
Ever existing 
Feeling like a 
Hoping they’d see me.
Knives call me, 
Ledges scream
Oh, come swallow these 
Pills. Having no 
Qualms about living. 
Ropes around my neck
Through the cracks
With flaws on...Read More

My Haunted House
A Monotetra

I moved into a haunted house,
the ghost there was, an obnoxious louse.
he’d sneak up on me like a mouse,
my hair he’d touse, my hair he’d touse.

My best underwear, he hides,
he’s a pervert, I surmise,
gives me a daily surprise,
patience he...Read More

It pounced upon my tender skin
With a happy hop in the lightest touch
My heart skipped three beats
Stress! My brain yelled.
STRESS! STRESS! Alerting every cell.

I was askance, feeling violated.
Knowing it was a flea or a gnat.
Or a teeny leprechaun with a...Read More

Wasps vs Bumblebees
Just like time
Wasps can sneak
up on you
to take a peek

They're nasty bugs
Who sting and chase
According to them
the world is a race!

But bumblebees
are big and fat
you can see them well
unlike a gnat.

And bumblebees
you can trust 
they won't try to take
your pizza...Read More

To My Love Part 2 TBC
How offensive that must’ve felt!
I’m seated after having said this in bewailment like an ox
Not thinking of the grandeur but of her buttocks
Gloriously, as an ambler, I lift the embargo on this thought
Not letting myself to be aghast at the...Read More

Premium Member Perhaps One Day
Perhaps one day the world can change
remove this grain from the gears
those sprockets seeking to rotate
have no need to compensate

an irritation that few admit
except to step around the grit
damned by silence without regard
for the feelings of the gnat

allowing gods to...Read More

Being Positive

Some gag at a gnat,
But will swallow a camel;
And I’ve been told they,
Can make mountains from molehills
Glass is always half empty

A gnat is bigger

than a flea, but smaller still

than a bigger sort of bee,

until one day they

all came and sat on the screen

and then I stood up and SLAPPED!

It's a strange, a unique habitat
  The inside of a hat

Peeling Back the Bubble Wrap

Peeling back the bubble wrap on the ancient of days, 
Back to when Nixon was still presiding,
He, leading with paranoid deliberations, 
Sold his yeses to the Goldbricks, and the Mustard Men;
And while he was dipping into...Read More

The sun saturates the Spanish moss,

A lovely, warm grayish green under the sea,

Premium Member An Alien Landed In My Thoughts Today
An alien landed in my thoughts today in the form of a gnat,
Right on the paper, it happened like that.
Not bothersome, not a worry at all,
Not big or fat or two feet tall.

Which is sometimes what happens when I see...Read More

Premium Member The Thinking Gnat
A gnat is annoying my nose today.
She keeps coming back and landing on me.
She is fast.
Faster than my grabbing hand.
I am eating an apple.
Land on that!
I wait.
She does not respond.
A gnat with a mind of her own.
I may adopt her.

A walrus, a whale, and a wildebeest
Have a few things in common to comment on:
They've never read Byron, or Shelley, or Keats,
They don't like asparagus, broccoli, or beets,
Or waiting in line to buy Popsicle treats.
And that's about it,
No phenomenon.

Are We Whining
I walked up the sidewalk to the front door
That had a welcome mat.
The doorbell I rang was kind of flat.
I saw Frankenstein peeking through a 
Window slat.

Tall black hat.
Good evening. Oh drat!
