Premium Member woodpecker foot
slumped over
ghetto spine
cringing
nightmares 
of revenge --
STRANGLE him
hug mother
for dear life!-- 
startling awake
nauseous
sweaty
woodpecker foot
relentlessly tapping
not my fault
don't hit me...
dinner table food
spasming 
mangled by 
screams, curses
roars its way
back up
undigested
will I die first

Ponder
Pastel clouds drifting across the painted heavens,
On a tranquil journey that never slows,
How many have seen the same whisps of white,
Floating radiantly against astronomy's lightly glows,
Will we ever know?

Chestnuts knocking as they hit the ground,
Golden orbs of life, just watch...Read More

Chaucer translation: Merciless Beauty
Merciles Beaute ("Merciless Beauty")
by Geoffrey Chaucer
loose translation/interpretation by Michael R. Burch

Your eyes slay me suddenly;
their beauty I cannot sustain,
they wound me so, through my heart keen.

Unless your words heal me hastily,
my heart's wound will remain green;
for your eyes slay me...Read More

Good Ol Southern Lemonade

On sultry humid southern afternoons
we gathered on the old mansion porch,
glasses filled with ice and long-stemmed spoons,
sipping grandma’s home-brewed lemonade 
spiked with grandpa’s finest homemade
white-lightnin’ packing a punch as any
he had for years been brewin’ illegally,
which got us selves lit...Read More

The Monstrous Past

Premium Member Never Too Old
I was perusing on the Net
It was good fortune to have met
Not in person, I'm sad to say
An Interesting woman, anyway
Interesting and talented too
Amazing what she succeeded to do
After a very late start
Aged 78 before painting Folk Art
This person had...Read More

Spare a thought
Middle of the road,
or somewhere in between,
Over and beyond,
is where I should’ve been,
Living in the undergrowth 
Staying more or less unseen 
Now a piece of roadkill,  
belly up hasbeen. 
As you drive on by,
Spare a thought for me.

Precious Memories
Grandma and I use to run across the shore.
Building sandcastles, 
collecting seashells wedged in the deep sand.

Many times we watch the waves hit the shore,
other times we leave our marks on the slushy sand.

Grandma usually covers me in the sand...Read More

Premium Member What goes around leaves town
When endless winter storms turn your mood cold
   When weary sun-less days test rugged men
When icy winds howl round you fearsome bold

A ring's the thing
  of which you've dreamed
A fitting culmination

  Wild cheers, the subtext
Hit the banquet circuit hard
  To your frame you add some lard

A new season begins

In the cemetery walks the wind;
Trees move seems like out of the way;
As the sun escorts it's whelm;
Funny little birds running out cross grasses play;

Tenderly the gravestones sit;
Those marble stones tandem large;
Up upon the rays of sun hit;

Led me through a joyful land
Where neither war nor hate exist
Nor something more I must resist

And black is never dark for lack
Of something bright or greater light

The City Sings Its Song
The city sings its song,
luring me to belong
to an orchestra of many faces,

Pardon mine allegiance to infidelity
Unfaithful marital transgressions

crime and punishment,

entailing no mister re: demeanors,

no unwanted child left behind),
nonetheless one unforgettable
indelible, execrable, and abominable
professedly owned his
civil warring battle of life

transgressions undeservedly heaped
