Premium Member When You Wear a Dirty Shirt
When you wear a dirty shirt,
You're a book getting judged by its cover.
People think you're really poor, or nutty,
Or that you have a menial job.
Or that you're all three of those,
And then they throw in...

Soon is the time when blankets will be tucked under chins
moonlight will wash over frosted trees.
the clinking sound of empty milk bottles
early in the pre-dawn air as life begins to stir from slumber
moving into day.

4:00 AM time to check the trot-lines.
Catfish and turtles strung out deep in the muddy waters
We would string the lines from cypress trees across a channel
And mark them with fluorescent tape so we knew which...

Breaking Down Barriers
It is no small act that follows
no leaps nor bounds
as we are bound
the square, white-washed walls
crumbling, no doors, no sound

but who are we 
are we not what one perceives
stuck to our one room box

we break...

Premium Member Venus Courts Mars on Valentine's Day
A single red, heart-shaped balloon isn’t enough
So I splurge and buy fourteen adorned by cupid
I tie them to the chair of my beloved “Hot Stuff”
To think mere balloons might please him would be stupid

Oh, these years haunt me still
like these ice cold tears...
The seconds pass by so slowly
like rain drops scrolling down car door window
The glass I look through
I can only ask it to bring me back to...

The Girl I Love
It seems so long that I must look
Among most girls, their attraction lures 
But with this sight my angst does unhook
And my eyes do end their tours 
The unpolished cover of your book
To suddenly turn...

Routes New
My shoes long worn out now got torn,
Within it rough, rude pebbles meet;
Pricking, poking in some stern tone
Knit-bit of my venturing feet …

Needle-like long pin-pointed thorns,
Pierced my now-dirty, ripped outfit;
Prodding every nerve, muscle, bones,
Thus tempting...

Among all beast from the Far East
This leopard is the beast of the east
He is so swift with clappers and claws
Claws that joy in breaking jaws 
In or out of the many land laws
When you...

We need to make a statement and make it loud and clear
Leave rigs double parked in every town
Come on truckers. Shut it down
Block the highways. Set...

Lungs on Fire
Lungs on Fire
By Kevin Robey
June 18, 2013
 
My lungs don’t fill
They suffocate
Relax, sit still
My mind debates
 
Forget this all
I will not stay
So will you call,
For one more day?
 
This tortured soul
Will not rewind
To times I...

When you want to get me in the mood
You strip down to just your boxer shorts
Tell me that I look so hot tonight
Then strike poses of various sorts.
 
Sometimes I could almost laugh out loud

THANK YOU MISS MADDY

Maddy baked some cookies,
She shared a few with us.
When we took a little taste
We got a full flavor rush.

For hidden in those cookies
Buried away down deep
We found some flavor chips

Random Pursuits
Deft entanglements are sailing by,
 some firmly rooted-
 others like whispers in the wind.
Overshadowed by some thing more desperate than your needs;
We walk unhurriedly throughout the busy city streets.
Anxious to compensate your losses-
 you stumble...

Premium Member Santa is sick
The year without Santa has a special twist,
He caught a cold from giving a kiss.
He coughed and sneezed,
Cussed his runny nose,
He put on wool socks to warm his cold toes.
He lied in bed coughing and...

The first poem

I am a woman in mid life now.
finding myself pensive and reflective.
Working in my flower garden
on a sunny Sunday morning.
Then a poem pulls up in the driveway.
Driving a red mustang convertible.
I remember this...

Premium Member NOVEMBER ECHOES


Slippery slide:
Time oozes away;
Spills wild joy ride,
Start of new day.


Brisk strokes blush bloom:
Time gone too soon;
Crispy brush grooms,
Puffs into noon.


So many thoughts:
Fade away far;
Twist of new plot,
A time to star.


November zooms:
In a quick dash;
Not enough...

What Befalls At A Brook

Delight I, midst a babbling brook,
Touching its banks, hugging its rocks,
The child in me that I mistook,
Stills on, hearing to water talks.

Ere am awash toward concord,
Delight I, midst a babbling brook,
Be...

No question here
Unhook the hook
Let life show the way
It pays to be poor
It pays to live today
And how could this never be a life,
A light, one more spared.
Because I never even needed to ask
You won’t ever lie...

Premium Member If You Asked, I would speak to you of God
If you asked, I would speak to you of God
pray tell – would you really listen
or would your mind be turning pages in reply
my inquiry rebuffed by righteous sigh.
