Pootie Mac
Pootie Mac

Little fella got a big gas tank

If Pootie roll on by,
and you down low try 
to pump a fake cry
Mac gonna give a mean honk

A huge sphincter toot,

When love runs it's course
By ways & means

And with my strengths
New paths I will pursue.

In our failed loves pretence. 

I've grew with you 
Along the way
I've been pained &...Read More

Premium Member The Raven Run And The Southern Lass Wanting To Have Fun
There once was a southern lass 
Who was looking for a good-looking guy to make a pass,
She thought fast and decided to sell them gas.

And he was a dude who like to party
Watching the car...Read More

Premium Member Houdini - Pet
Once we had this awful cat -
"Houdini" - grubby white,
Hissing, claws out as he spat,
Forever in a fight.
Of him we were not too fond,
And wanted to be rid,
We would have loved him to abscond -
The rotter never did.
We tried to...Read More

Premium Member School Days
At school I must have been naive,
for I was told I must achieve.
Add up, subtract even divide,
equations, algebra must be tried,
Nouns, verbs I had to learn,
adjectives were my concern.
In French we should pronounce our ‘R’s’
By making gargling sounds that purrs!

Premium Member I Could Do Your Nails Too
Look at my nails! She said. Are they fabulous or what?
Or what, I thought, but I lied and said “fabulous.”
I could do your nails, she offered.
I wondered if she could dig all the dirt out of them first.

I could use a quill like shakespeare
to write this down.
Or send it in a old style telegram.
Dictate it straight from my soul
Or get it tattooed on my arm 
forever more, and for all to see.

God bless and keep Venezuelan
protestors safe!
Put your mighty Hedge of Protection
about their fearless waists.
Let it admonish us all, in the USA.
how 'socialism' can metamorphosize into
a corrupt, immoral snake.

How many of us have the backbone to
perish in American streets?

Don't Bother Me
Don't bother me with conformity
don't bother me today-
with things I should (or shouldn't) do
or what I shouldn't say!

Don't bother me with conformity
my house is not “obscene”...
Orange, purple, and lavender
look lovely with lime green!

Don't bother me with conformity
I'm much too happy,...Read More

Premium Member I Am Ready For Some Violets
I am ready for some violets, the sun, 
Dewdrops, wet grass, tulips, and daffodils
Marigolds, geraniums and warm, sultry weather.

My socks are cold and wet, soggy even.
I slipped on the ice twice yesterday.
My grandchildren live in this tundra. 

We can make...Read More

All in All
They say Jesus is our rock, our sword and shield
He is the shepherd of our green fields 
Our one and only
They say when you fall down, he’ll pick you up
The times I’ve fallen, I’ve had to crawl
Fight my own battles,...Read More

You are such a dummkopf. 
Okay, thanks. No, I mean it. 
Thanks.

You are a lunkheaded-lame-brained, stupid wooden head.

Doggy?
The five-year-old shook her head, “no, thanks, Daddy.”
Kitty?  Maybe sometime, not now.
Fish? Daddy asked hopefully.
Little Princess shook her head, brown eyes, big, hope-filled.
 
We would have to sneak him past Mommy.
Big smile.  Okay.

Premium Member Great Therapeutic Becoming
What if great transitional chains of Being
were to mysterious dream transform
into a rather mid-way
invitation every day
depths of therapeutic Becoming?

Would we accept such a green fresh
democratic
cultural invitation?
With open arms
and redeeming heart
and double-bonded mind,
deductive left
and inductively seductive sacred Right

That is forty foot in the air now,
And way too close to three other trees that I planted the same day.

obese
Now, I am not a huge man

I'm not large by any means

In fact it is surprising

I still wear normal jeans

My pants don't have elastics

I still use normal towels

But, my BMI stats tell me

I'm a word that has three vowels.

Thinking is over-rated
Thanks to Descartes (No, no thanks Rene!)

It is a fact
When a moment of sheer beauty arises -
Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls in Canada ...
We suspend conceptual thought, for perception:
