As We Know It


An ornamental doe and fawn,
suddenly move. Tails wave, noses nuzzle –
I have mistaken an actuality,
and now am thrown out of my skin.
I’m a millipede of fractal awareness.
I sniff the body-odor of the planet
take inward, then sift out
Australia and Africa.
I pause...Read More

I WISH I WEREN'T A CENTIPEDE
I WISH I WEREN’T A CENTIPEDE
by
JOHN M. ARRIBAS




I wish I weren’t a centipede, a lowly arthropod
I need a transformation into something much more mod
To obtain status, with a much higher species standing
Not be straddled with an enervating task so demanding

Premium Member Considering the Centipede
Please don't think it odd if I intercede
On behalf of the poor lowly centipede.
Though he does get the blues
When he has to buy shoes,
He's better off than his cousin, the millipede.

Beauties and cuties
Hey,Miss cute little jumping spider;
you are a skilled under leaf hider.
Wow!The crown like eight tiny eyes!
or you the princess in disguise?

Mom Hated Millipedes
Mom hated Millipedes, she didn't like them at all.
Whenever she saw one, it made her skin crawl.
She hated them because she was afraid of being bit.
One day she saw a Millipede and she threw some rocks and crushed it.

Premium Member honesty at the edge of sleep
honesty at the edge of sleep	

captive by the night
deepest black
it touches into my soul
where turmoil presides.   
so many questions
on millipede feet 
stomping in army boots
across all my conscience;
a voice singing soft upon the ear
was there not more?	
could you...Read More

And what to choose
Coffee or tea?

Fragmented frogs frolicking fruitlessly freeing flavoursome fairy freckles,
But what of the speckled hound in the bin?
Well he growled,
He snarled,
The sole paw pilot pivoting,
How interesting was it to note though that the frogs although fragmented held a fragrance like...Read More

Song of Nature
Song To Nature

Today it was bright and the sun shone above
 The sky was an azure blue
 And the breeze from the east made a low hallowed sound
 as it blew all the leaves to their demise on the ground

Graceful but Dangerous
I stood still watching a thing
It moved gracefully in peace
like a train wagon I thought
appearing in crowded foliage
I saw Michelangelo genius
but it wasn’t St. Peter’s Cathedral
A dream of millipedes twined
on sycamore tree branches
but it was bigger than millipede
rays of setting...Read More

Come join the unraveling circus
quite soon to be passing our way,
with the clowns in a clamor to twerk us -
line up as they lead us astray!

Arriving, the elephant trumpets
agendas of aberrant acts
while the donkeys drool, dunking their crumpets
and twirlers spin,...Read More

with mental independence weighed to a pathetic size of almost zero.

You are contented with pain because of the availability of opiods.

It was atlantic beach I went
In search of pearls and cowries
Sad, to voidness I return:

Roam not the street when it snows
Lest you soak your feet...Read More

Their itsy, bitsy, tiny feet, until now free and bare,
Were leaving cold and frosty foot prints almost everywhere.

SOLITUDE A LOVE KNOT

Rushing millipede of rain down my window pane
sadness drifts, glided uninvited ounce reef.
Unruffled even from billowing strain,
solitude steals unnoticed like a thief.

Tiptoeing feet over my naked crippling fear.
Verbiage expressed in trying train distraught.

MY LEADERS

Black robed in a modern market square
High benched listen ready to give dictation

And the air could read out my evidence to the doubting masses.

Road mishaps
Their honks were like buzzes
From a desperate housefly;
Streams of smoke blurred the air
As the metallic insects cued up
On the road beaming the light of the night
Like a trapped lampyridae in a race-field

Its moves in snail-pace
Overtaking the unfortunate scraps
With broken eyes...Read More
