Premium Member Summer School
It was a smile, simply,
that would absolve me of my virtue ...
a whiter-than-white allure of the unexplored.

Barely a teen, I was mesmerized by her sublime sway -
distant, yet she followed the puerile anguish of my eyes,
back-and-forth, then ever-so-slowly UP her...Read More

Nothing to see
Fantasy slowly suffocates memories
days gone by are by gone
Hope will not meet my gaze
Lemming dreams hover at the edge
and fall into the depths
to land upon their 
decomposing brethren
Dreams once had
are now seeked
Crumpled life
hinders my feet
used to chase the rainbow
now head...Read More

Lemming Siren Song

Another sound byte,
the latest alligator lip lie
Patent leather fake promises
being fed to graven idol sick fools
thru an intravenous video tube

And they willingly give Kevorkian consent
to vote for their own suicidal self-interest
Such an anti-global citizen attitude
is lemming leading tools
to the ledge...Read More

Empty Chambers

Stray ghouls are just zombie shrunken heads
being voodoo capitalist misled
Ricochet fishing for the ocean blue, 
deep pocket dollars:
The green algae money 
buried at the ethical wavy, 
graveyard bottom

Hollow days come every pointless, peon payday,
as creditors delight 
in debt shopping their...Read More

Imp-ulse Attraction
The seductive voice
emanating from the Cyclops eye,
whispers:    Don’t believe what you see!
Only trust what I say,
when you zombie sleep turn off the TV

Have no bewitching faith in your bad dreams,
especially the one with the crooked hand
grabbing ear...Read More

Loss of Thought
Mind if I ask if there's anything left
When it comes to common sense 
With Band wagon outside you jump on for the ride
Not caring if it's East or West 

Where you carry the tune of a marching buffoon 
A Lemming...Read More

Belly Full of Lies

Listen to what the snake charmers say:
We be sulfuric scaly bellies,
flicking poisonous tongues on the telly
Idoly speak pure Orwellie — 
Down is up   ...  famine be a feast sup
Tell money hungry fools they’re full of it,

Gitti Ghetto Like That

I loved a suburban woman,
but she didn’t urban love me
as deeply as a brother needs

She said I was too ghetto
But my bank account said
I was qualified gated community

CitiBank gitti ghetto said it, not me

Me and the peer pale woman I...Read More

Locker Room Talk

Immature boys
having a bully good time
Plenty wet towel fun ...
doing nude, verbal denigrating

It was just harmless locker room talk,
the unconcerned adults all said

Nothing to worry about,
the pampering voices cooed 
Giving patronizing pats on the head
to those annoying,
ponytail ginger freckles in...Read More

Serpentine Shadow Dance

Swine Rush

Little piggies in a hurry,
gotta run and catch that muddy dollar
As me rat race cheese-off,
peddling asphalt fumes of a 401k Harley

Punch-the-clock tired worker bees
drone alone in a homely cubicle
Fraidy kitty cats don’t snatch the keys,
‘cause blind mice can’t cloud read

Premium Member One Contingency
In the arctic tundra live strange critters
called lemming, that legend says jump off cliffs. 
Their fate's enough to give one the jitters
imagine finding all those frozen stiffs.

When overcrowding becomes an issue
it's rumored that they will stampede to the sea.
And throw...Read More

Premium Member Satan's Truth
I am feeling distressed by my feelings of late,
There are people I love who seem poisoned by hate,
People I know are smart, willful Science deniers,
Call truth (they don't want to hear), "fake news" at best,
Set themselves up as experts and...Read More

Premium Member Always Impending Doom
All our systems will break down
and planes will fall from the sky. 
Plagues will stalk the land and 
it is hard to stop the hysteria for
it quickens the blood and feeds 
all the addictions.

It gives us excuses for
not doing what...Read More

Premium Member All there is
Just pick a number, get yourself in line.
I, myself, jumped in some years ago.
Counting my blessings, I'm just fine,
with many more than most people, I know.
The question I find always hovering,
with the answer always just out of reach, 
is just...Read More

Premium Member DMV
In the parking lot of the DMV
I watch the privileged
and the not so,
come and go.

They come in "Beemers"
and rattle clank clunkers,
desperate to join,
or rejoin,
the lemming like hordes
of autos.

So it goes from 8 to 5, 
tentative migrants and
confident suits
queuing up,
checking and...Read More

The Shoreline Of Old Casabay
The Casabay shoreline 
Rolled way far down south 
Where the crocodiles met with the sea 
And the gulls fly about 
Seeking salmon and trout 
To serve with their crumpets and tea 

Now the lanterns that lay 
By the picnic parade...Read More

Premium Member Picking participles
I was punctured by punctuations
The words you wielded with such disdain
A ravenous revolutionary
Pitilessly piercing deep into my vein

I pretended such positivity 
Holding happy forward as my shield
Your attack so precise and persistent 
cold and calculated you would not yield

You left...Read More

From Alpha To Zeta
A
beetle
contemplates
death- with babies,
each one, him reborn.
Fortunately, love's peace,
gives no yearning or felt angst.
Hell arrives, in a spray can's mist.
Instant genocide, heaven's unreached. 

Jury is out. Are we thought, chosen ones?   
Knowledge born, burdensome considerations;

Poetic Justice
I look inside you
I step inside then
Well, well, look what I find here

Is this place Hell 
Where my steps have led me

Well that sounds just like him

Night Marches regardless
