Lemony pines spring from my Summer mind,
dangling their scent, like Christmas ornaments.
I close my eyes and follow the sapphic breeze.

My bronze feet bounce through the mossy sea.
Feeling giddy in this faerie paradise.
I dosado amidst lichen and bark of ancient trees.

Ancestral Vacation Home
Dirt road lined with walls of stone,
run right up to the small home,
rust red siding coming in view,
in my head it’s still cedar, blue.

Sugar maples line a big field,
in march syrup we will steal,
vast open space on a hill,
where once...Read More

And must is always must
Ripping words from discarded text
Grasping at letters as leaves
riddled with inherent fails fall from my hands
sick of me me memes

sorry if i confuse
vicious in the deeds never done
lines are never under the bridge

Seventeen is the Lucky Number

Lamenting over failure-caused anguish
Feeling doomed by pride’s weakness, I languish…
Lord, my gloomy aura, You extinguish
Shelter* me with love I can distinguish.

Beneath the shade of grief’s weeping willow
Midst hurts, ten times worst, wherein I wallow
Your pill of comfort I...Read More

When I allow myself
to become an understoried note,
I hear our symphony co-relationally composed of
tunes harmonic,
subconcious sub-objective underlying creation stories
recreationally sung together
better than just loudly marching apart,

This bilateral muse awareness
releases me from fundamentalistic win/lose salvation stories
and allows this ego-moment to...Read More

A cute gentile pig in New York
plays hopscotch over turtle hurdles
which eased her bunny
until a smack talking turkey announced,
'Did you hear how the skunks in bombay
lost a spelling bee - to an
artistic aardvark named clark?'

Around her, muttering mosquitoes

We had a picnic for two, it was a magical midnight!

oh my big cousin
a dusk gaze beamy lashes
a little temper

forbidden fruits of knowledge
through bathroom keyhole

once she spanked the boy
but punishment was more like
a hidden caress

luckily she died
before I grew up enough
to do stupid things

“You are in the hospital,” a voice said politely
Little did she recall the crash, that changed her life
And she learned to wait patiently. For days and nights!

President Trump,
a master at the art of lying,
says he wants to build the wall
along the Colorado River, for you.
But it’s a cruel end game
and a hard lesson for immigrants
that seek asylum, 
after walking a path of sorrow, 
alone and confused.
There...Read More

I see you, says the moon,
drowning in self 
by the water’s edge.

But what if.....?

by the shoreline.
I will lay an ocean banquet
of magical moonlight 
to tempt your dusty heart,
opal spells
to break your fear.

I will send good morning kisses

Evolution Of The Species
We stand in line for this?
A two dimensional string
A world with no up or down
Moving back and forth only

Favored by nature moving
Forward and backward evolve
From that blank genetic pool
Favored by natural selection

The double helix comes forth
DNA could not be happier

shooting stars twinkle

sprinkling sparklers on the loose -

fading light expires

vows everlasting

impermanence tightly squeezed - 

woes’ storms intertwined

sunshine’s radiance

reflects warm silent repose -

disquieting loss

winter breeze swishes

seasoned kindness transgresses -

permafrost daggers

future corroded

skies disunited in pain-

new love on the rise

listen to my words

Dark sad clouds and shadows

Life-less structures of destructions,
suffering, remaining, living, surviving,
within evil controlled constructions,
as satanic slaves in zombie enclaves.

memories of mankind piled in mounds,
signs, words evil, live, 
a riddled reverse of an...Read More
