Premium Member Comedy of Impeaching Errors
The Republican congressmen,
and I do mean white privileged straight men,
came to their Democratic opposition
concerned about how depressing
December can be,
and all of winter,
come to think and feel
of dark discerning Advent,

So maybe we could stage
a comedic debate
about Trumpism,

To say the most extravagant...Read More

what's a man to do
when he meets a kangaroo
and the kangeroo's called Andrew

he said how do you do
can you help me out I'm new
I'm a kangaroo called Andrew

is it really true
you're a talking kangeroo
and your name is somehow Andrew

Kangaroo Court
A donkey and an elephant in a kangaroo court.
Are turning the zookeepers into a political sport.
The zookeepers are in a frustrated rage.
By the donkey's fabricated stage.
They seem to be down on their luck.
But if it looks, walks, quacks, its probably...Read More

A kangaroo in dungarees hops hopefully 
	To win first prize in the Favs contest hot
		On the heels of an enlightening glow worm

Surely life is no competition but the stage lights
	Reverberates all the promising contenders
		Reincarnation oils the wheels of the jury

"Midnight to 3.33, Morning Kills"

He said, 
“Go to where the poets go
Love rolls wet and sways
Intensity wraps itself inside out
and somersaults its legs backward
to open a way
It’s kind of burning hot 
like Summer burns 
bare feet on 
powdered shells

On my first trip to the outback across the endless plains,

It would take more than my lifetime to ever...Read More

Judging Others…
whimsical law?

It is a kangaroo court, 
and the clowns have just arrived. 
Dressed in suits and ties, 
eating pies.

They think they know best, 
they have been put to the test. 
Liars on fire…
every “one”.

Taking care of a tiger,

His Voice
When he speaks,
with hands… not words,
he takes a breath after every sign,
repeats every sign twice.

When he’s nervous
he hums, sometimes he’ll squeal
On a bad day, he’ll flick spit into the corners of her mouth
jumping like a kangaroo on steroids
he frowns.

When he’s...Read More

A day spent in fading memories
Frightened of memories fading,

Early morning,

sunlight caressing the face

introspection at the reflection 

in the Brahmaputra river 


sweet aroma of the red sand

and green on the countryside

struggles flaying arms to swim 

across the blue waters by Narasimaswami temple 

while religious, in...Read More

Premium Member A B C Poem to Rev My Engines
Alabaster annoyance 
Blatantly breathes bulbous brightness
Cadaverous comedy caring 
Daintily during delicate delivery
Exciting elderly enigma.
Furious fiery feeler
Gregariously greets
High-handed hustler
Ignoring imaginative immediates
Jauntily jeering judiciously.
Kangaroo kisses kibitzes
Leaving luxurious loners
Merrily masticating mincemeat.
Never-do-wells needing knowledge
Ostentatiously officiate on orange orangutans.
Precariously polite Pomeranians
Quietly quiz querulous quoters
Reposing rapidly...Read More

Literary Notes

At age twenty I had made it to Earls Court.
The rented room was seedily solid
having been for decades
filled with wine and cheap sunlight.

Until then I had not read a thing
apart from: ‘The Ship’ by C.S. Forester
and ‘Arms and the...Read More

Animal Crackers

We go to see the animals, 
the zebra and the bear.
The lion, the tiger, 
and sometimes the small hair.
No, not the one… on top of my head. 
The one that is soft and has very big, fat feet.

There aren’t enough ways,
To emphasize your impact each day.
Such an influence in every way,
No matter the time of the day.

No idea where I’d be if not for you.
Bouncing in life around and through,
Loose and unstable...Read More

Fun with Animals
The Lion

The lion brags he’s the king of beasts
and on other animals feasts.
That boastful reputation doesn’t sit well
with animals who are edible.

The rooster is a cockadoodeler

Late sleepers call him a sleep awakener

A hippo and a kangaroo
were in a bar in Kathmandu. 
The hippo ordered a cold beer,
let us make that very clear.
The kangaroo on the other hand
was clever enough to understand
that getting drunk in Katmandu
is not the wisest thing to do!

As We Know It

An ornamental doe and fawn,
suddenly move. Tails wave, noses nuzzle –
I have mistaken an actuality,
and now am thrown out of my skin.
I’m a millipede of fractal awareness.
I sniff the body-odor of the planet
take inward, then sift out
Australia and Africa.
