Fold FORM POETRY - CLIMATE CHANGE Categories: odds on, weather, Form: I do not know?
Climate change, a threat!
All bookies odds are odds-on,
Would one want to bet?
Look, can you not see sorrow?
Climate change a threat!
Wildlife, that was, disappeared!

Build your own rocket.
The clock near to striking doom!
Climate change a threat!...Read More

Latched tender breasts
Then slowly bloomed into a flower
Like tender leaves fluttering in air
Hearing the lullabies of cold breeze
Then flashed glimpses of moments in hurry

And meats like albacore and boar

Taking the last shot like "Lebron"

Telecasting a "Telethon"
I'm Liu Kang...Read More

Past the years of innocence
Moreover the renaissance
Gazing to familiar faces
Familiarizing myself as it effaces
Now, I have been here four days
I can say it's all worth the pay
Was taken aback by few changes
Doesn't matter as long as nothing hinges
Priceless happiness, I...Read More

Velcro shod man
lingers in the V.A. clinic
for yet another visit;
he slowly turns pages,
peeking from beneath bushy eyebrows
laying odds on another day
at the park: stooping
to stop the ball
a kid just threw curved
into the wheelchair.
his old bowed head
white and...Read More

Escape its face aged still crisp visions veil
Replace with faceless shame pave title of hate
Close its sphere hangs ...Read More
