In middle school, I've never intended to be interested in anyone
the girls had claws the size of a minivan
it could extend to a couple feet to hundreds of feet in seconds.
The claws had a mind of it's own, they would...Read More

Meow, Meow: bang, bang parody
I was old when he was a baby
my feline loved me ardently, but he drove me crazy.

He loved to play at midnight when everyone slept,
Chewed on toys and on my covers he often crept.

Meow Meow, baby scratched me

The bright blue sky
Pokka dotted herself
with cotton field clouds;

Below, beautiful green leaves
of proud standing trees
complimented the scene.

Then the news flash came:
“School bombed! Students killed!”
“Suspect escapes!”

As if on cue,
white clouds darkened;
sky tears slowly fell;

Today, it seems as if schools
are daily becoming

Premium Member MISS MATTHEWS

I met her my first year of middle school.
My first impression was, she's too young.
The voice in my head was so confused,
she's a teen, how could she teach me?

Miss Matthews was my science teacher.
To my surprise I enjoyed her class...Read More

some hide their giggle as best,
while others lean out to confess

Sweeping up the Heart
The absence in the house
The years after Mama's death
Inspired ceramic industries
Surpassing artisan dearth

His handmade big clay heart
Clearly said "C + A"
When shall she see him again?
Not till Saturday.

(My poem above is an adaption of the Emily Dickinson poem below. I...Read More

When I was small
My favorite color was blue
It was my first day
Of kindergarten
Proud to announce it
Only to realize 
That blue 
Was a "boy color"
The girls told me that
Just like their mothers
Told them the genders 
Corresponding with colors...

But this is not...Read More

Song for 24
Here it is, another Monday to pass
a compass, a compassionate compass

a far-fetched wish but please materialize in my palm
bring a friend if you must
someone you trust, so I can relay the sentiment

Incorrigible Recalcitrant - Doppelganger (mine)

Ala Goofus and Gallant 
highlights my diametrically 
divergent alter egos
always the reserved 
obedient docile boy
afeared to stray outside narrow

circumscribed comfort zone
figuratively tethered
extremely short leash
choked me like yoked oxen,
albeit non red dually bullish
under bated breath

otherwise submissive

So this is Fremont, California
Circa nineteen sixty-nine,
Nice and bit of a tight-knit
Neighborhood, that is fine.

I am a honey tanned Hawaiian
In a nearly all white community,
With the only swimming pool
Thinks there is another opportunity.

Learned later that ours was it
For this part...Read More

Nor a distant memory 
But the ground roots of our livelihood
And our future destiny.

When the final bell will sound 
To mark the end of education

A Wonderful Life
Life is a beauty
From the day a baby starts
Everyone who knows about them 
Keeps them in their hearts
And when a baby’s born
There are tears of joy,
From the mother and the father,
And their little girls and boys!
The baby will grow up...Read More

Random thoughts of I as a student
Science, mathematics, history and geography…all are the subjects of my school
Education is vital for all
Random thoughts in my mind
Penning them down by my side
The most important being math
Driving people crazy most of the time
Science or vigyan as people call it...Read More

Week before middle school
Twelve and shy
Sent to get haircut
With three dollars
Clippers were brought out
I was too scared to look
I had never had a store-bought haircut before
The man had a funny smell.
I would not know it was alcohol for several more...Read More

Been to visit the middle school
Not ready to let our babies go there
First of all, they are like lambs
Innocent for the most part

But now that they have seen
The fantastically “fly” cheerleaders
Gyrating like pole dancers,
They are even more frightened.

Not the girls,...Read More

Alone in this bed pondering the thoughts that make me fear the morning.

Is it the anxiety?
Or just the way i am?

Way back my classmate of middle school
Lost early on his father in the clutch of cancer
Destitute family cart mother was forced to pull
Clouds of trying times in the void sky he saw gather.

When once I sat and pondered the definition of heartbreak
I realized mine changed almost as quickly as I matured.
My toddler heart broke when Rover stole my ice cream.
My Kindergarten heart broke when Susie was cast as Cinderella.

Because they can't hold it together
