The Crow Ghost of Haunting Footsteps
Break my neck; snap it in two, snap it in half

I remember the sheep dogs when the day was through
and the...

Again to play their devil games

For balance true to earn its name.

You Know Who You Are! 

I know that you probably know who you are...
Abusers who prey on women (or men) .
Your aberrance mostly extends to the weak, 
Your generosity just serves other's pain
And, of course,...

Premium Member Maybe It Was Eleanor
Ever wonder where big ideas come from?

Memories of FDR

a lion-headed striking man
with rakish grin,
jaw jutting proudly, 
signature cigarette holder
clenched in his teeth
tilted ever upward...

as he cruises by
waving to admirers

We live in Closed Systems of immunity,
heading toward decay!

The Chains That Bind Me: Letting Go of ED
Chains, so heavy. Binding every body part.  
A cell: its cold metal bars blocking out light.   
A wall, originally meant to protect, now a barricade nothing penetrates.
A net, once safety, now entangling,...

I swear there’s no heaven

Two toddlers, never married
Two fathers, my life far too harried

My life doesn’t resemble storybook fables

I often wonder if I’m...

In some province far away.
