Reach the pineapple
A rolling stone gathers no moths

Are you all just a pigment of my imagination
This will be my last will and tentacle

I don't fell well

I have my head in the sand, buried down deep.
Something comes along, and pinches. The creep!
I bring out my face and there is sand in my eyes.
The lobster that pinched me is thrown to the skies.

the clearance way from me;
within its love set free
shallow road where Chinese man pee
Blood on the marquee

Kelso at Anchor

Kelso has a boat
smeared to the gunnels,
with cawk and greasy weeds.

At a prow of dawn
he hauls dripping lobster,
and their pots
up the scummy steps
of the silty stone harbor,
pushing a barrow
into the towns brick narrows.

Kelso barters claws and tails
to barkeeps, crab-mongers,

Have you wondered why the sun's so far away
Coz any closer, on a Florida beach, you'd use words profane
You'd fry like a lobster
Like a deep red monster
The heat at 120º Fahrenheit gives one inexplicable pain

Premium Member MISTAKES - Am I A Fake
What to look for?
Where do errors lie?
Are they in the eye of the beholder
or do they lie?

I believe I’m a poet,
a prophet of paraphrase,
a swindler of alliteration,
the rhyme above all reason.

I think I know!
Am I who I think I am?

The Lobster

A lobster on its deathbed:
Soon now I will be dead;
heed now, these words I give
to you on how to live:

Be simple, modest, fair;
avoid anything that smells of air.
Stay clear of tempting bait,
scrutinize first and wait.

Reach out to others,
your sisters and...Read More

Lobster Rain





A good friend died
I don't know who
A eulogy on the car radio said
"He was a good friend to all"

It begins to rain
On the road a raccoon family
Bodies strewn
According to size and age
The stripes remind me
Of holocaust pajamas

A lobster was killed...Read More

Wayne was avid fisherman from Maine
So proud of his huge lobster catch fame
Too many days spent at sea
Caused his lonely wife to flee
But his lobster business was insane

Premium Member The Hip Trip: A True adventure




It was semi-dark in her
kitchen and late at night,
When Panagiota fell to the 
floor, with both legs in flight.
On her right hip, she landed
so terribly hard!

Alas, getting up, was not to
be!
She crawled like a lobster from 
kitchen to living room.
Far from merrily!

Let's go chow down.
Was he serious?
I could barely walk now.

Then I thought of the buffets.
All nine of them.
And the shrimp.
And the lobster.

So I rolled myself out of my teeny tiny not-so-great room

A lobster playing grand piano
that's all life really is
claws haphazardly crushing ivory
striking beautiful and hideous notes by accident
racing the clanging tide of death
to polish up the melody
waves closing fast around the broken keys 
an empty grand piano bench
lies broken on...Read More
