My home
Hours upon hours
Night and day
I read and got lost in text
They supplied me with adventures
Secret journeys

Village in the Valley left behind, and then it's a fine find

Till the end
Bite the bullet
You're the village...

I am my Father's Son
They were gambling in front of the house.
Manservants and pages bustled about
Serving Suitors who just curse and carouse.
Few mix wine with water. I heard one shout,
"Clean down the tables with wet sponges! Rouse
Yourselves! And when...

Poetically Pathetic Crow
Just enough to make it just
I want this to be enough to make this
The last song ever, the last note ever
The last romantically, poetically sad excuse for an apology, epilogue
But I've already messed up the...

Patsy Foley Was Roly-Poly in 1947
It may have been the devil himself who prompted the kids in my schoolyard back in 1947 to chant "Patsy Foley's roly-poly from eating too much ravioli."

Flint 
Within its brilliance gleaming
Cool black in lacquered polished silver chrome
Cranked up pistons bleached in summer’s heat
Hot steam rising as gears thundering

Highways built across the land

All orderly pre-arranged

But four young girls...

“The True Mother”




What part of a heart
in another could one trust
when betrayal comes
like a silver bullet words and deeds
sharp piercing to burrow

rust crumbles to dust

Virulent apathy spreads 
Betrayal’s destruction

“The Fallen”



Remote,
he sees himself 
in the reflection of cold close 
yet distant shop windows, 
his final journey along the
