Let Love Kill
Zoned out in the darkness
Time devours my vitality 
Trying to swim; I sink to the bottom
Meet me here in aphotic darkness
Our devilish souls can create a tsunami on the surface
And obliterate all other love
Light hearts, ripples
As we drink their shallow...Read More

twists and turns of serpentine.
perfumes that emanate from time to time,
through a wall of quietus-trees.
perils in the doubting waters,
amidst the anaconda, caiman, and piranha.

perhaps, after all, man is the more sinister
as his stomach growls
and his face’s beaten bittersweet
by the zenith...Read More

Water of Life
What difference to me
Is the source of the pain,
From an ancient salt ocean
Or a pool of spring rain.

The clever deceptions
Of color, grace and form
Veil the singular predations
Of a savage, feeding swarm.

From deadly microbe
To frenzied piranha,
Shocking my tingler to
The Great White...Read More

I am not over you
Every step I take
It’s your footprint I see
Every breath I inhale
Is filled with your scent
Like a symbiotic nutrition
Your shadow creeps behind me
Every nook and cranny
Is filled with memories of you

Spell bound I am left
My hearts arrested
And my thoughts captivated
Awaiting a...Read More

It's like a scene out of The Children of the Corn,

Inside the inner city desert storm,

The Mouse --In reply to The Cat--
I am a mouse
You are a cat
You think you are…
But you aren’t all that
I am too fast 
For you to kill
The blood of no one
You will spill
Your claws are dull
Just like your head
You’re about as smart
As a slice of bread

AMAZON  

Death-dealing its piranha and crocodile   
And its fast bore fierce and tidal. 
Life-giving, the earth’s river-daughter
Floods half a continent with water,
Floods half the planet with oxygen,
Probes fresh lobes far into salt ocean. 

To Brazilians it is...Read More
