Risen
From the springtime flooding along South MLK
A sh#t-skinned slimy pipe
Pops half way up from a grimy hole
Like a gopher molded from iron ore

Neck and head periscoping left then right
Tiny arms bolted to its furry chest of rust
Surveying the silence of...Read More

Premium Member The Town Gossip Gets it Wrong Again
There is a gopher hiding in the gooseberry bushes,
Kaie, the town gossip told me.
I looked hard.
Got prickled by the bush’s thorns too.
Got bloody.
Hey! Someone said.
It was a snappily dressed gorilla. 

He was wearing a Stetson with a paisley hat band.
He...Read More

Gopher Broke
There it was an earthen mound with gaping maw mid-yawn.
The issue that I struggled with; it stood on my front lawn.
Unholy beast of underground with ill intent conspired
To sully verdant, velvet  turf, from heaven’s scape inspired.

No longer could my...Read More

While listening to  my footsteps rap
I stumble: tiny boughs whip these cheeks
until my eyes catch a glimpse
of  our old cabin tilting ahead,
like a barren woman in quiet dignity.
The field's gopher darts through an exit
with such eerie silence, jolting...Read More

Human hatchery

Clink clink clink clink...
Test tubes prattling past

Glistening under fake fluorescence

Biological blobs of gamete goo,
vials of vile biology,

Find me in the sea full of empty shells.
They are bones over Noah’s burnt vessel,
ashes of gopher, Calvary’s wood the
timeless ark and rungs on Jacob’s ladder.

Alone on a Tropical Island
How I got here, I have no clue.  I do remember being on a cruise.
Passengers were walking, talking, and watching the cerulean blue sea sparkling.
Intrigued by the total awesomeness, I climbed on a thin ledge for a better view.

A Florida Woodland Reverie
Forest floor matted with the detritus of time;
Underworld denizens in their castles sublime.
Tight aerial ropes, loosely dangling from above,
A veritable paradise; proof of His Love.

Brilliant gems of the summer bedazzling our eyes;
Summer's regalia, like the alligator's sigh,
Verdant ferns lining, ev'ry...Read More

The Old Plane Graveyard

He drools, as he studies the bounty before him to take.
First the one that comes closest, but none he will forsake.
He smiles as...Read More

Hands of Time

Crows landed quietly;
quietly as closed eyes sleep
the restless sleep of the grown.

When? popped the lines
of her veins, like gopher
trails under spotted skin?

Her neck once smooth and long
now the mushy marshmallow
of her granddaughter’s delight.

You are so soft said she,...Read More

God told old Noah to build an ark,
To make it out of gopher bark.

And worked until he completed the task.

Two of every kind, the hes and the shes,
