In the House of Alice - with rabbit
It's a portal of intrigue to navigate an I,
never really a fully-disclosed revelation…

The entrance’s a four-chambered heart::
hallowed passages that stream in myth
entwined with facts of the livid tangible…

Housed inside a skull-manor roomy-rich,
Othello may patronize a bedroom or two
Under him, a...Read More

Premium Member Short Ribs W: Common Denominators
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.
The wildebeest,...Read More

Noah's Ark
God asked Noah to build an ark
he was happy to oblige
but he wasn't so keen

the whale began to wail
