Head clouds are pretty not hearing...Read More

Some may even have saddles and reins!
On the old Batman TV series
They added Aunt Harriet, for they
Feared, two bachelors and a...Read More

Avid anteaters ate artichokes
Blossoming beyond barley’s beauty,
Classic chews can clearly
Deny delivering dangerous dangling dates
Evening eggplants enormous evolved ecstatic
Ferocious fig fritters furthering Frito’s finesse.
Galloping gingerbread giants gobbling goats gelatin,
Hurrying heavily handsome hindquarters
Imagining illustriously ignorant
Jealous juried jams
Killing king’s kiwi kingdoms.

I remember the silhouette
From her stares and gestures
How they gracefully slithered
Through minds and seasons
The silk in her demeanor

She only had one niddle of hope
With locally done emotional textiles
She could...Read More

Every gagged mouth is covered

Raven black-cloaked, vomit foul specter

Someone’s been tilting the tomb bottles again,
tipping thru the Pet Sematary growling
Inflicting fear is the feral joy of the frightening
