Clyde Lied!
by Michael R. Burch

There once was a mockingbird, Clyde,
who bragged of his prowess, but lied.

"When again, gentle bride?"
"Nevermore!" bright-eyed Raven replied.

Flying
by Michael R. Burch

I shall rise
and try the bloody wings of thought
ten thousand times

Animal Poems
Dot Spotted

But, we're only issuing Mall permits

among up and coming geneticists and historians
that the precursor to the regeneration of a species,
or even an...

A sickening, sober, foreboding sign.
Wretched chance it was not,
This time was by insidious design.
