The Obeah Woman
The Obeah Woman

Heavy musty air reeks with the Obeah Woman’s pungent perfume, 
sweat, burnt incense, bitter roots, and swirling black smoke,
dim light from a waning moon streams into the shadowy room;
and mirrors crack as restless...

throw out an ancient Voodoo spell on you
dead men tell no tells especially when
at the bottom of a black water bayou
so you better treat me good, I’m...

The Woods
No one dare set foot in those woods there 
is evil far beyond our imagination and it's usually
up to no good. Some may call it pure fairy fable but it's
only because they haven't seen but...

His parents day was through.
His Mom had hand sewn his costume

Tropical Depresion 12
I can recall that night,
so vividly, still...

The salty ocean air on the 
tip of my tongue
as Atlantic winds blew her
ever closer to me;

and her scent-
a blend of seaweed and sand,
it whispered secrets to me 
(so...

Passing through gildeds secular anathemas open markets 
 
With countless sonorous voices calling from their ravens, hoodoo booths

Wishing to sell everyone these worldly visions amid obscures

When the West Was Legend
Few now look back on those times that are gone
When Hoodoo and Rudebaugh rode rough stock;
When Clantons and Cowboys carved out Tombstone
And the West was legend with Wyatt and Doc.

There's Jesse amd Frank and Youngers...

He's the soul for which I wait.
I'll feed him darkest sabre grapes
and lead him to a bed of moss,
with velvet spread and moonstained...

Premium Member Alone Among The Hoodoos
Wandering through the badlands
of the great south western plains
I happen upon a great assembly of
fairy spires, other worldly
wonders of rocky pinnacles
that dot the high desert landscape.

Strange oddities, these creatures
with their solemn, stony faces
staring toward the...

Ancient crevices trickle through brims of his glasses 
While his callused hands hold mystery & misery,
Any eye could see he’s a man of power

Out Of Sorts, The Heathen
A wandering heathen
compelled to wander and wonder,
clinging to the subjective notions
and half-baked personal philosophies
that evolve with each new day
and whisper with each pale night.
Away from the Kingdom Hall,
past temples more austere
and churchyards more severe
and cemeteries...

Premium Member Ebenezer's Stone Statues
Who knew that "Hoodoos" were here
Where 50 million year old totems appear?
An 1875 find by Ebenezer Bryce,
Sandstone spires that engage and entice.
Human shaped pinnacles of sediment stone
Ascending from canyon floors, standing alone.
Paiute powers may stir...

Total abandonment of better understanding, unspoken fear and
wild eyed in disbelief, shadows in the cemetery, a lovers grief like the image in a broken mirror like a black cat crossing your path, blood stained tears...
