Space me
A peace of mind 
Walking by myself at a decent time 
No one to check on me 
At least I’m fine
Lower my standards 
A million zillion reasons to
Believe in me 
As I’m reaching you
Every evening new experiences 
This crib I...Read More

She's in love with the sound of her own voice
The pitch the tone the octave
Her one favorite topic is herself
She loves her audience captive and attentive
Their politeness is nothing short of adoration
Convinced there's no topic more worthy of the podium

An Era Lost
Deep in his heart had urgent need to go just one last time,
To place where he grew up; would childhood memories rebound?
Went with fear and misgivings; was he wise or asinine?
Step after step, he strolled over boyhood holy ground.

His old...Read More

A Tiny Star
I picked a star to watch tonight
Some five million light years away
It serves as our sun to someone
I wonder what they have to say

Wrapped loose around this tiny star
Float another trillion it seems
But those are for a later night
This one...Read More

I will not hold your golden trophy high above MY head
Or wear your name engraved with cheap polyester thread
I’m so sorry you can’t decide what to wear today,
Will it be the Christian Dior or the Versace green lamay?

Each night when I lie down,
The brightness of color fills my head,
Million of dreams in my sleep

A vision of what I see

A Bitter Sweet Tragedy
"A Bitter Sweet Tragedy"

   It was a typical mid-morning, on January 15 1919, on Keany Square in
 north Beantown, you could hear the hooves of horses clopping up and down.

POSTIVE GIFTS AND HIDDEN TREASURE
First came Storm Ciara 
On Sunday the ninth of February
She caused total havoc throughout the UK
Heavy rain brought serious flooding
Her gales so strong brought buildings tumbling
Whilst on the Isle of Wight
The most southerly tip of England
Gusts of ninety seven miles...Read More

CRYPTIC CALLS:

The night called out to him
A man of plane fleet
Gloved in illusion of machete and strength
To beat out from the web of sleep
And answer the howling cryptic calls:

Cryptic calls of hooting owls and chirping crickets
Cryptic calls with lurid eyes...Read More

Early Morning in Manhattan
Eight million people living here
Yet on my morning walk,
Deserted streets provided
Not a thing at which to gawk.

Behind each window there were souls
In various routines – 
Asleep or in the shower
Or engaged in breakfast scenes.

I marveled at the emptiness
In such a...Read More

...Khan Williamson, for his troops called him that now,
split his forces and swarmed in from the west,
million of Uighurs joined him for revenge,
and all in his path could quickly attest

my name is Blake Jones, I was S.A.S.,
and everything that I write here is true.

The Fact(s)

It started with a poem. 
Penned in by mistake. 
Then it ended up in a letter, 
that later turned into an email. 
That was forwarded, 
not once but a thousand, 
and then ten million times. 

Then someone was asked,...Read More

I can't be the one
When rivers flowed down my wet eyes,
And my pillow was drenched in tears,
You were the one who heard my cries,
And helped me to chase off my fears.
I heard their sermon, of the Sears,
Even after a million tries,
I won't bring you...Read More

The bones of the matter,
Pieces chipped by the harsh reality of life,
aged by the winds of time.

Some have become petrified,
dried out and turned to delicate lace.
Others are more substantial, cluncky.
Oddly shaped, jagged edged, and smooth lined
Intermingled in a tangle of...Read More

Puffinus puffinus
Historical crooner, troll-like in burrows

your eerie cries are supernatural.

 

Lacking red, yellow and orange

but you shear the air to make up for it.

so tired in a day with sandwiches and...Read More

DO YOU SEE
DO YOU SEE?

Did you see the picture of the swollen-bellied child,
Beset with flies nobody had the strength to brush away?

Whose one remaining hope is that he dies first;

After the Genocide
AFTER THE GENOCIDE

For years, the ominous signs were palpable
The deep fraternal mistrust festered and discernable
Propagated by colonial masters to divide and make Rwanda malleable
And left lingering became monstrous and uncontrollable
Snowballing in 1994 into an orgy of murderous hate
As Hutu brothers...Read More

Forever Forgive Me
Forever forgive me
For my one and only iniquity
Please forgive me
With forbearance eternally

Lots of anger and lust

So, I must...oh, I must…

Determine my footsteps to the light
Emotionally unhappy
Intervene in my life with utter...Read More

Love’s Music

If music be the food of love, play on;
play on, oh my Beloved.
Let the sweet melody of your song
fill the dark realms of night 
like the beautiful voice 
of a besotted nightingale.

Sing only for me …
