Roaring engines, wheels on tarmac
Flight 82 is running late
Pilots push the throttle forward
Flight 82 disappears into the black

The nose rises, the speed quickens
G-forces push you through your seat
Inkiness outside the windows thickens
The planes’ destination silently...

I wanna go home for Christmas
Cold, lonely, long nights
endless hours before dawn.
The flickering candle in the night,
brings up yawn after yawn.
I know I want some sleep
but the hill I'm climbing is steep.
Each and every limb of my body,
creaking, screaming, protesting,

America! with respect to W.W. & A. G.
This struggling accomplished path winds,
Spiral like stairs leading us to the point;
Average wingedhipsters today more like
Displaced thugs. With no sense.
At every corner, we're speaking rigorous

That we all eventually yawn.your wombs

America, I'm wore out, worrying about

Twenty-three chromosomes from my father

Give solely sovereign sway & Masterdom.
The air nimbly & sweetly recommends itself unto my gentle senses
To commend the ingredients of my poisoned chalice.

Reflections on a view from a New York tenement window, seen on social media
New York Stanza
The night is dark and wet, street lights
Have no purchase on the empty street beneath;
Only the soft glow from the tenement windows 
Gives form and perspective to my view.
From a half open window...

the long good bye
You tap me on the shoulder and ask whose staff I'm on,
 Startled I try to tell you but see that you have gone
 Down the path of memory to a place of no-recall

making every island vanish
into the misty sea rolling by;
but the lonely and trembling gull

and his loud,distant cry
is revealed by a deep anguish
adding to an unpleasant...

Its hinges squeal from years of inattention and forgotten maintenance
Floor boards moan a song of dismemberment and forgotten age

Unanswered calls, in the night she waits
Unanswered calls, in the night she waits

In the night she waits.
Waiting for her knight in shining armor.
A man glistened by loving traits, strong willed, someone who didn't hide lies behind his truthful words.

Too many fish...

The Plot thickens
As the wicked, evil one;

Mankind says it was an apple;
That lead Adam astray;
That lost Eve that day;
but it's ticking. . . 
The sounds of the bombs that linger on
Imposing, expelling,  I found
