Nuremberg to Washington
Nuremberg, Nuremberg, I’ve done nothing wrong
only followed orders, the children only song.
First it was the word, next it was the book
then it was history, surreptitiously they took.

From a child’s birth, others choose the way 
raising children skillfully, parents have no...Read More

She laughs like a donkey braying except it’s more annoying.
She tells tall tales so often, her hideously ugly nose has grown.

Everyone is in a panic.
Except me.
Everyone is frenzied.
Except me.
Everyone is crazed to the maximum degree.
Except me.

Listening to the birds trill, they seemed stress too.

Let tonight be red, 
red as a glowing conflagration usually is.
As a fiery meteor crashes upon the earth,
so these argent moonbeams kiss your eyelids,
and enkindle the fire of concupiscence,
which, for me,
is more psychedelic than the lunar bliss.
In you I observe...Read More

If you have sense 
Do sensible things 
lf you can reason then 
Do rational things
If you can talk talk aright
When you're permitted
To see don't see doom
Learn not to condemn
The foolish acts of others 
Without pouring them 
The water of solution

In February
Illnesses besetting
Parents aging
Chilled waves of anxiety
     buffet the shore
Thunderclouds dampening

Cellos, subdued in minor sonority
     play Eleanor Rigby in my mind
Painted ponies gnashing

Impending doom, if warning comes before destruction;
When is it the last warning toll?
Darkness leads the night
Impending doom, if warning comes before destruction;
When your texting and walking
Watch out for the curb and stop light

You envision the spoon in the pot;
On the...Read More

My internal experience of depression
today shames
external ecology of elation,
all I might know as warm extended family
of profoundly peaceful impressions
still bare surviving
at end of this slow-fading thread.

Premium Member Do Not Swear Around My Parents
It started early for me - using words sailors are supposed to know
My parents had no idea where I got them.
I figured it was my last lifetime 
When I was a pirate.

I could cuss with gusto at an early age.

Premium Member Grandmothers at a Wedding

The bride was sweet, the groom was an unknown entity.
Not old enough to be married, she was barely twenty.

I protested all the way to the church, my cries unheard.
My husband told me to settle down, not be a nerd.

We collect the feathers that fall from birds.
But we’re also listening to everything you say
and collecting all your words.

Your words of joy.

Dump that flirt, what e’er you do!
Once you’re wed, she’ll run you down.
Her name is known throughout the town.”
