Premium Member The Hotel Caretaker
How unparticular the day had particularly been,

On March the third of two-thousand and eighteen,

For the caretaker at an historic Adirondack Inn,

Had lacked company, and therefore, dopamine.

 

‘Twas Sunday when all the guests had fled,

From either...

Premium Member The Timelines
I

From thirsting shoots, the timelines grew
to stubborn stems that clasped the strings
of magnetism, space, decay
and gravity. The paths they knew
were constant, straight; they stretched away,
unbreakable yet formless things 
defying turmoil’s beckonings,
each one with its own...

"50 Words for Poe: Rasputin"



The Rat was buried in the Pet Cemetery
His name was Rasputin

She had been fond of him for some time
feeding him morsels 
every now and again
tickling his whiskers occasionally -
until he decided...

Premium Member An English Adaptation of Mephistopheles' Song of the Flea from FAUST
There was a king once reigning
Who carried a great, big flea—
And far from him complaining,
The flea filled the king with glee!
For to him that flea was dearer
Than even his only son,
And to make his preference...

Tom's Tid Bits (Yet Again!)
How come they call it Labor Day when nobody works?
And why Pool-Table?  Where's the diving board?  the water?
How can you play "Draw-Poker" without paper and pencil?
Do Negroes really have bigger knees?
And Flashlight: A...

Cooler
Fifty years of bustin’ ass, I never had a dime,
If I had any balls at all, I’d’ve chose a life of crime;

I never owned a brand new truck, a flat TV or yacht,
I figured I...

Get Off The Cross, We Need The Wood
Scarcely the Dropper-- a roach antennae Felt,

Some Maudling exterminator of nakedly inhuman hands.

Boiled renunciation falling sick With life itself,

For Libido has and Always Will Be…. the most Impersonal of instrument.

Stepping out and through a purple...

Suburban Spring
Suburban Spring	
(4.15.10)


	Springtime fills the air, 
			like laughing gas.
		(Or maybe more like whiskey.)
The suburbs are drunk on the nectar of it's dawn.
	Middle-class houses 
			are starting to dance.
		(Or maybe they're just wobbling.)
They vomit whole families onto their...

Those trademark circular elements of style in vogue every four years
When the crème de la crème of the athleticism 
presents itself on the world stage
Suspending and transcending any present day internecine conflict
Allowing, enabling, and proffering...

Hot Dog!!
Ah, the great American food mind!

Just A Witty Bitty, From One So Silly
My T.V. just left, said he was
Gonna go out and catch a real movie...
Those on T.V. stations have grown too trite,
My refrigerator told me,

At least till I drop 20...

A Seasonal Walk
It’s a pleasure to walk out on a Winter’s day,
When the cold air bites, and deep snow’s here to stay!
To hear the wind howling through the bare trees,
Perhaps hear the sound of a chickadee sneeze!

Idiot Lights
The trouble with idiot lights,
You see, it’s a problem
That goes, perhaps,
Farther than me.

There's abundant ignorance
That floats in the bog
In a kingdom where machines
Can measure breath’s grog.

More than vast numbers
Aggregating in crime,
There's a feeling that
What is...

I had heard a soft whirring sound,
As my eyes opened,
I thought I saw three silvery Quarters
Fly out of my bedroom door...

My head felt stung,
My mind seemed full of...

The Mighty Master Macho Man Tom...and the lil' mouse
I'm lean, I'm mean, I'm tough as nails
Nothing could frighten me

Ju-Jitsu man, master of knife and sword,
Can shoot an eye out at a mile...
No fool would...
