Just A Bagatelle
If it lasts it must be good or is it  just a bagatelle? 
Mountain tops inspiring cryptic lines that  vanish in some moth infested haze,
Boulevards beloved of budding artists whose mocha fueled creations stray off point,
Mother Earth obsessives...Read More

In the middle night,
in middle America — a small tremor,
not enough to scare the cat,
but the cat knew, and it told the mice
who lived in the walls.
‘It wasn’t us’, they said.

A mess on my desk.
The thin vase with its lone...Read More

This Romeo is bleeding
but you don't see his blood,
nor feel the pain throbbing through his heart.
Brandishing love like a saber
you slash your way through his dreams
gutting his hopes.
Oblivious of their cutting edge
your words wound his injured pride
and this Romeo bleeds
invisible,...Read More

Dedicated To A Wonderful Sister

It takes a sibling  to  sense her brother’s needs  this day of days when futures are at stake.

"The Odyssey of We are Centre"

Where does he come through 
with his fishing lines?
Casting off metaphors
worms of vitriol
hooked and dipped,
he’s so green backed  
rolling in grandiose 
self published flack
unhip and seasoned 
with his tart rye 
swallowed for kicks
pulling deep...Read More

The thunder of moth wings
can only be heard in the rain.

The distance between a screech owl
and your dreaming ear  - exactly one heart-beat.

The color blue turns red in the moonlight.

Melancholy finds ways to be your vision
until you disappear into...Read More

Yet with the recent collapse of the garden estate, Abe knew
The devil had appeared down, in, up out the chimney flue
As a result Eve had lost the Rose, petals fallin' to the ground
His brother Cain had started his count of...Read More

He's So Tired
He's so tired, worn out, written out, empty.
He's been too often to the well of false laughs.
The replenishing bucket of self-deceit
now hits the hard-stone bottom of reality,
as echoes resound their mocking gloat.
The underground reservoir of past joys, bled dry
to cultivate...Read More

He'd glimpse her, the peripheral life of her;
she lived in the corner of his eye.
She passed-by, her face and form - tidal, 
a tug on his shore.

Perhaps she was salt for his blood, spice
for nomadic mitochondria
that carried her silks and...Read More

Moth Haiku
A light soft flutter
Faithfully carried a moth
Intent on escape

Left the world behind
Through the light and to the moon
She flew quite softly

Flying by and by
Only to see what awaits
Across the night sky...Read More

It's soft and warm, a perfect size,
The storm that ends his drought,
All HE wants is to be further and deep,
He never really wants to come out,

And all SHE feels is something she needs,
What is taken away she wants back,
Her desire...Read More

In Flames
Like a moth to the flame we journey,
forever wondering why

Never knowing what but only where
—our destiny on fire

Zolpidem kept me late, the library had been open for hours.
Young children studiously ran amok 
from one poster plastered aisle to another.

I have this thing about female librarians.
I had hoped to have grown out of such fantasies,
emerging perhaps like some...Read More

If I have the time to play grownup games 
it isn't fair to quibble if I lose.
For though the rules are designed to confuse
smoldering embers don't equate to flames.

Innocence is a precursor for pain
like a moth I'm attracted by your...Read More

Before the ending, there is this other self -
it is a little ahead of me.
He does not look back,
only I look back, imagine a path
all the way to the middle 
of a spiral foretelling.
I imagine I am still a seed,

That evening
we took a flat-bottomed boat
and swam it up the Thames.
Douglas the middle-aged queer
served martinis out of a crystal pitcher.
Lurching for lips, he kissed me.
I was surprised how sweet it felt.
Jenny in a canvas chair, pale legs crossed,
water-trailing sensitive fingers.

To the Young Woman in the Green Dress
Butterfly, from the corner of my eye, you drew my gaze,
Wings cloaked in seafoam, hair ablaze with amber and flame,
I: transfixed by your figure as you danced into my personal space.

I apologize for staring at you for so long it...Read More

Oh Maya, you are so cute and beautiful,
Dancing like a damsel around me.
I came here with a definite hope,
Of winning you without a delay.

Oh Maya, showing your softness and grace,
You delude me and made me a slave.
But whenever I woke...Read More

I dreamed you were a poem
that has not been written.
A poem about you as an ocean,
no one’s ever seen you so blue.
Or measure the depths
of the beauty within you.
The way you enjoy a pleasant.
Unexpected surprise,
and the feel of a morning...Read More

by Michael R. Burch

Now darkness ponds upon the violet hills;
cicadas sing; the tall elms gently sway;
and night bends near, a deepening shade of gray;
the bass concerto of a bullfrog fills
what silence there once was; globed searchlights play.

Green hanging ferns adorn...Read More

Golden Wattle Flowers and the Wolf Web
The world is spangled green and gold
Against the blue dome of the sky

Is a Christmas garland
For my womb tree

My shining uterus horns
Which will never bleed
Life or death
