that was his father's...
To A Beautiful Misry Winter Ensemble

glowing in the misty rain;
the cold air periodically
sneezes a chilling wind.
What little snow that remains,
clings to the hillsides—except
where little flowing...

Playing gin rummy with a Hippopotamus
Playing gin rummy with a Hippopotamus,
I know it seems oddly preposterous.

My oath upon it, as strange as...
prose, husband, integrity, longing, love,
Today, I feel a great strength!
It is the same strength, that every two feel,

Who were forged together
prose, absence, childhood, deep, emotions,
Have you woken up by a river?
One within the forbidden woods.
A tent, for two. Sleeping bags.
The stream, rushing over golden sand.
I could hear the trees...
prose, angst, freedom, political, symbolism,
In an ahistorical fog:
all the Ways home,
all the signposts,
by greedy men and women:
all eyes off the ball:
mere contemptible bourgeois folly.
The rain is unending,
appreciation, metaphor, music, song,
Water’s voice is sweet;
Playing soft whispers across the rocks,

a splash crescendo
a symphony begins.
A musical genius
writes notes in the earth;
pulsates to it’s own...
A Shower of Sediment
prose, blessing, imagination, nature, poetry,
In such a whimsical action
a half-asleep routine
shaped disrobed and left stark naked
this vehicle, this housing, a shell
scarred skin, greying hair, bones, muscle

prose, how i feel, life,

Dat Ole River

I've fooled you Mr Death
He feasts on Death, a daily dose.
Life's to pretty, love, sentiment.
Feeds on hatred, his human host,
He forecloses souls, waives the rent.
He disects hearts like a...

prose, africa, allegory, america, analogy,
Standing here in the mind of mine

Africa Under Siege
prose, 10th grade, 11th grade,
Africa is raped. The continent of life is pumped dry, and the colonizer won’t stop, ’till he is stopped. And blocked.
We pay colonial tax for...
Dance with the Senses
appreciation, environment, music, nature,
Notes that float on rippling strings are happy little gems.
Clicking, clacking percussion crescendos;
a celebration of a percussion family reunion
is never quiet.
