Following the tumor blooms
that muted my throat and gut,
I duct taped my mind
to the wordless, I put my head down 
charging at daggers, and
thanks to pain bullets and cancer bombs
my thoughts are catching a little headwind.

I'm looking at a sea...Read More

I believe  a Force in the universe
pushes around and around suns, moons

a universe that sent the stars into the night

Premium Member Guinevere at the Supermarket

I hear girlish laughter beyond the bagged onions.
Imagine her swimming naked among green ripples.
Her white arms are lily stems, hips as sleek as an otter
flow in a neon moonlight.
A sound system promotes discount cookies.
Visions of idealized females fill the dairy...Read More

Water Otter
There once was a very odd otter
Who was strangely afraid of the water
He was an otter and yet
There was no getting his fur wet
A great disappointment to his father

Their name means 'water'
And it really ought to

With clear voices

The Castle On White Otter Lake

That rustic, old log castle 
Stands facing the lake.
Built by hand, by one man
To acknowledge his presence,
In a changing world he felt
He could not participate in.
And chose to live like a hermit, 
On the shores...Read More

With a bric a brac design,
Made up from bits of others, 
A sort of animal Frankenstein,

And what to choose
Coffee or tea?

Fragmented frogs frolicking fruitlessly freeing flavoursome fairy freckles,
But what of the speckled hound in the bin?
Well he growled,
He snarled,
The sole paw pilot pivoting,
How interesting was it to note though that the frogs although fragmented held a fragrance like...Read More
