The rain falls gently making no splashes
The wind is absent today.
Safe indoors I look out and know many
Seek bus shelters, and they have no home.

Paris is an ugly city, expensive and dirty
Their subways stink of unwashed people.

As she truly was the highlight 
Of this trip.

71 : 17 A Reflection
They shot anything that moved,
anything filthy and poor.
Down with the proletariat!
The Prussians played cards
and praised red French wine.

They passed round the Vodka,
The Russians played cards.
Down with the aristocrat!
Lambast the filthy rich.
They shot anything that moved....Read More

A Tragical Tale


She has a fever.
I leave her dozing fitfully on the veranda.
Halfway to the woods there is a farm gate
where she will often squat
and piss.
The grass is brown, but still thrives,
strangely adapted to uric rain.
Paris the giant poodle is here,

Absorbed in Guernica’s promise Lucifer glanced at Montmatre

Settled his mind on virgins in heaven as Mona Lisa smiled on

One Last Supper tied to a suicide belt he set out to light the church

Of Our Lady and mounted Chagall’s Blue Horse...Read More

They were designed for cute, pink elephants

I have never been to Paris,

This year more than ever
I long to surpass myself
The clock is ticking
No longer can I recklessly 
Take the gift of time for granted

I dream this year more than ever
To give wings to my muse
Release the buildup
Of pent-up energy
And let her...Read More

Toward the end of a book,
we tend to speed up, 
in anticipation of the climatic finish. 

Yet sadly, 
the build-up...
was the part we savored, 
on the perfect path
to the right...
final, 
and everlasting
word(s).

The beginning.

Wore nothing more than a few bright-flashing gems;

"Prophecy"





The Bee sleeps Her secrets
In honey 
She sleeps Her dreams 
a honeycomb 
of secret lives
gone wild
in a lost 
forest of trees
metamorphosis
in mirrors' reflections
She scries
a prophesier
dreaming
prophecies
where She 
fluttering REM 
walks long roads home
wandering wondering
in the Amygdala Catacombs

Paris Is Calling
There is a city that is calling to me.
But right now, it’s as far as far can be.
I will go there one day, of that I am sure,
But it will probably take a year or more.
I’m coming to you, Paris.
