The Oceans Do Not Call
marlin, feelings, how i feel, mountains, nature, ocean,

sitting on beaches soaking sun
until their exposed bodies roast.
They build...Read More

Critterary Verses: Things I never learned from Marlin Perkins
marlin, animal, humor,
Antisocial anacondas don't associate in numbers;
Bears and beagles don't become the best of friends.
Civet cats catch rats, so is it any wonder
On doleful dingoes dire dilemmas do descend?

"Frenching" frogs will fetch nor wart nor prince.

Take me to the Catfish Fry
Lead me to the China Sea
Feed me hermit crabs and...Read More

Out in the deep sea
with the marlin,
or just a bull...Read More

A rolled up cig
A voice that sings
At every gig
A mind that travels

That brought on tears

Way off the coast of Maine he is fishing
while soldiers he sent to war are dying;
and out in the desert blood is flowing
as he is busily catching some marlin....Read More
