Resistance On The Iberian Peninsula

“Liberté, égalité, fraternité (Liberty, Equality, Fraternity),”

The All-Time Greatest Great Britain
This small island civilization,
its empire was the largest creation,
with the widest trade connection,
there are mixed views of our colonization.

Many modern countries exist because of the British,
many justifiably say our actions were most brutish.
Some have hate...

The Pull
I sought a soul akin to mine;
Like Zeus’s Athena
And Alexander’s Hephestian;  
In oracle and verse-
Transient of continents
From the warm breath of the New World 
to the Whispering sands of the old, 
so Ancient and...

Heartbreaker
I was innocent, my heart was pure,
Until you stepped in, with your remarkable allure,
You influenced me, made me pine,
For things that weren’t mine
 
Gullible that I was, I thought with my heart,
Regardless of the plan...

Mona Lisa Could See 2 of 2
Drop picture till six
The land like Pokémon kills
Nearing a tornado’s kiss?

Lift picture to three
The earth seems a lot different
 And looks extreme wilderness!

Turn picture upward
Rapid rivers dash inward
Floods hit mountains and stumble!

The Waiter and the Wife
I once met a waiter in Berlin.
A tall man with blonde hair, 
a long scar above his eye,
I knew his name only to be Jurgen.

Following coffee one fine day I asked this man, 
“Do you...

Folie à deux
("shared madness," or "madness for two").

I suffer in silence, though not alone
kvetching old curmudgeon (me)

long haired pencil necked geek)
buzzfeeding off life's miniseries
of unedited miseries in tandem

In the fall of 1803
In the fall of 1803,
The good ship, “The Queen Ann’s Knees”
Sailed out on the bounding seas.
Out of sight of the land
The captain looked grand

He spoke to his crew:
“Men, I’ve nothing to hide!

Love Lore
What is love?

The North Star guiding
a lost seafarer home
or the Siren’s song luring
him to the rocky shores?
Is it frolicking in the moonlit nights
in a field of flowers
or trudging across
an arid, scorching desert?
Is it a freeway...

Being there
Diamonds are a dangerous commodity.
Topaz brickettes pave lost roads

of bewildered Dorothy's
(and misguided second-removed cousins).
The birthday cards
I send myself,
are never returned to sender;
they're forwarded to you.

Rubies are ominous and a crucial...
