Premium Member My White House Interview
I was nervous about my newest client.

with the WhiteHouse.
But, when the President called,
or twittered,
for an intake interview,
I guess it felt like an obligation
to at least show up,
although perhaps about...

Sitting on the relaxing throne of my age
Reminiscing what I went through in life
A mere spectator I have now become

Premium Member Spring Break V - Russians on Miami Beach

The Fish Crow is an outcast amongst the seagulls
Standing on the hot Miami sand
At the end
Of our rose-colored beach towel

Nodding and blabbing half-heartedly

To the lack of crumbs

From us
The stingy blue collar visitors
From freezing old...

Thump-thump of stiffening fish contorting

 Lidless, bulging, reddened eyes, swivelling upwards, 
Protruding horribly from the straining sockets,

In open air,
Clawing at dirt that isn’t there
No one sees my distress—
No one really cares
Clacking, scraping sounds
Of glasses and plates

Assault my senses,
And still I cannot breathe…

Even as...
