Watching Aldebaran
The sweeping lunar curve
Away, away with you

Going up the stairs
I, amidst brown frogs,
Turn into silver dew drops
The bloody horns
of Taurus
Melting into the jet black sky

Dark fragrant stillness
Incinerates my bones
I am bleeding purple daemones
Like a holy mollusk from Tyre

Wrapped in bull...Read More

An Unhiegenic Affair

Her hormones fled the coop
on scalding tires.

He drifted into her,
working the night-shift
of a traveling fantasy.

Motel maids were her sisters
bars her occupation,
a place to work 
on the aerobics of hope.

Their love
was an unhygienic affair.
Everything spilled out,
much maintenance
in putting back in.
Emotional jism

Uncharmed by the bloom of fresh roses white,
I shall with the mute prop of unspeaking sticks,
Like a bored mollusk loathe my slowing walks;
And pine for eternal still with wee cursing clicks. 

Uninspired by thrills of chart-topping songs,
And no longer revived...Read More

Fierce tempest slams its maddened jeer
    while gush of flood crashes offshore ;
 then to our village…loud winds roar
as piercing thunder grows severe:
    Upon tide's  crest pale mollusk  floats

Octopuses From Outer Space

I'm glad I'm not some 'octoplie'
I'd not serve friends in Shephard's Pie
What slimy mollusk could invent
Or needs eight arms: A hollow tent
(More land than sea) who won't pay rent!
Rich born with more? (Some do sport ten!)
If tentacles...Read More

Untrampled Sand

Idyllic shorelines tucked away,
Are island protected in a tropical bay;
Below pastel skies polished by clouds,
Reveal a Shangri-La bathed in gold.

Untrampled sands, white and tanned,
Are cooled by waves and wind fanned.
Where exotic vegetation creeps unmolested,
Claiming squatter rights of fertile deposits.

Premium Member Joy Through Her Loving Ways
Rainbow skies, ocean current withdrew.
Girl's pert swirls, soft unbound hair, where pearls
shelled mollusk would dare to clasp its curls.
Radiance eyes special gentle blue.

Three feet exhilarating handful.
Sweet, inescapable mud stain cheeks;
cuteness with endless hugs, sunshine streaks,
briny wave tears drop flow buckets...Read More

Invertebrate Indecision

When Miss Doubtfire moved in
to their heart,
she entered dragon tail swinging
Plastered smiling walls of bachelor resistance
got knocked down
at every single candlelight date demolition

And as the henpeck frowns
rose from the rubble,
an arthropodic shell of a man
was kinda ready 
to take a...Read More

Silence of the Lambs

Dueling Americans
love drawing blood from a distance
Crossing swords with their dogma guns ... 
a test of mettle:
Who will bow first
to the pressure building in their lungs
Bipedal zip-lip back-to-back walkers,
bivalve mollusk closed-minded talkers
Fifty paces then turn... 
make a quick trigger decision

After Labour Day

summer sizzled 
pressure of humanity
 has retreated into the city like a 
mollusk into its shell
the stillness is echoed from 
the bark of a farm dog, the call 
of coyote in the grain fields
hunting geese gleaning wheat
wolf song...Read More

The Mollusk
Upon the earth
Mantle of flesh moves over damp sand
It has born to live, to feel, to experience,
A life by means of subsistence,
It grows its shell to protect,
It grows that shell,
It spends all the life in growing it....Read More

Mom told me once that 
Her cat's eye necklace
Was a favorite.
There was something about it
That filled it with glamour.
Years later I learned it appealed
To her because it was chatoyant.

A few decades ago, 
Every ingenue was taught
That pearls were the ultimate.

surrounded  by warm embrace of mollusk

When the bubble bursts
Buoyed over waves of elation
Marvel at favourable sights of creation

Prospect for attainment visible
Within glossy bastion, even trials seems agreeable

Mollusk of endearing devotion, grumbling for denied favours seem so easy
How progenitors of our existence purse their frustrations makes one feel lousy

Biscuits and gravy
Salads and snot
Chicken fried salamanders
The clams and mussels 
The oysters	the army 		marines and the navy
No such relief will be brought
Delusions of Grandeur
The dankness in disparity 	the putridity
The slackened standards
Oh the wasted cognation 
The scabs

Poor Slug
Today I squashed a slug.

He was not a bug.

He did not bite, tickle, buzz or otherwise molest me.

At best, he was the occasional plant nibbler who feasts on my weeds.

He was making his epic journey across my stoop in his...Read More

Out of the waves they come.
Helmeted army of crabs
Trundle over the perfect pools 
Of starfish and periwinkle,
Murking up the sandy bottom
Of their foxholes, 
Armoured claws testing each mollusk for food,
Sidling up to my toes
In marauding hunger.
I retreat  inland,
Allowing them...Read More

The pearly shell
On the dark bottom of sea, 
under the miles of deep salt water 
one creative mollusk 
dedicated his life 
for searching  
the sackred dream 
about majestic  and precious 
pearly sunrises
somwhere far above the  sea.

And eventually

A seashell was the greatest find

A conch shell was the most prized sought

The precious pearl adorning neck
of haughty lady grand,
began as a sharp irritant,
a minute grain of sand.

The mollusk doomed to carry it
through the ensuing  years
released liquid to ease the pain.
It's been called "lady's tears".

Seldom does she remember that
poor oyster and...Read More

Swept by waves of nostalgia
Afloat on longing tides
I assessed this oyster compound
where my heart could not abide.
Aphrodisiac pulls of Neptune
were as lava cooled to stone
What use were pearls of luster
when one had no collarbone?

Heralded by sea trumpets
kelp banners flying high
