There's the

Strumming on his guitar
Singing of the
Good ol 2000's songs
Shaking his head
At the recent rap reps
The golden eyelet
Etched on
There's the emo girl
In all black
Tapping furiously
On her laptop
Emailing any
That would take her
Her sighs can

Premium Member Blunt Knife
He keeps trying his barrage 
of raging vitriol, but it's a blunt knife
on his target's alligator skin

A predictable high school bully
with the same ol' lines of attack.
His target always sees them coming...

and the invectives inflict no pain!

The bully sharpens the...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

by Michael R. Burch

Over hushed quadrants
forever landlocked in snow,
time’s senseless winds blow ...

leaving odd relics of lives half-revealed,
if still mostly concealed ...
such are the things we are unable to know

that once intrigued us so.

Come then, let us quickly repent
of whatever...Read More

I will return to my old roots,
That lie back on the Darling Downs.

Warwick was my family home,
I will go back to that old town,
And see how much it may have changed.

River chopped
Into rugged blocks
Of ice and powdered snow
Under a covered bridge
The tap of horse’s hooves overhead

Rapids froze in place, agony on her face

A boy growing tall in his sleep
Under the crisp white clean sheets
His daddy’s shoes he dreams to fill

This year my granddaughter played football.
The high school coach tried to recruit her.
She is debating now football or cheerleading.

Which was insane as school counselors 
Are in a school to build relationships.

I could be a nurse mother or teacher
Our caps and gowns were red and gold
Small town Iowa kids
So excited
