"50 Words for Poe: Witch"

She liked driving fast
The number plate in the dust
Read DOT.OZ.LimaLimaBrava 
Their destination was Wichita

Foot to the Floor 
Off Route 66 Silver Lady purred
Some Kansas backwater 
Galena sped by in a blur

There was a war going on in Vietnam

Look out America, the British are coming

We couldn't wait to turn our radios on

Wrapped in cellophane and ribbon 
mocking burned down evergreens
Screaming at the shadowed walls
as nightmares spurn your toxic dreams

Lurking near the bottles filled with 
endless empty molten fears
Dampening the diapers as a 
mother cries her...

Down the bottom of the garden, amongst your vegetable patch
my entry to this world, from a larvae did I hatch, no bigger than a tip on a match.

A Prisoner's Cry
I am sitting in my cell staring at the walls
Wondering why I didn’t see the pitfalls,
My Mama always told me; “my son beware”
When I close my eyes her words I still hear.

I thought I was...

A long time ago, somewhere cozy I know,
under bright fire glow, my mind got blown.

Well I don't know you well but you seem like the kind
That might join me for coffee at the five-and-dime?

Stand Up
Put down the guns, lay down the knives

Bridget Mary Donovan
She’s eighty-eight this day in January,
Graced my life nearly a quarter century.
When I grow up I want to be,
Just like my dear friend, nay ‘Auntie’, Bridie!

This Colleen from Castlemaine, County Kerry,
Is ever joyous and merry.

Who taught many of us to sing.
But it wasn't until much later in life
