The Narrowing

Glowing days that were once red-cheeked and ripe with promise,
Are narrowing like tall candles in a church window,
Tapering from the golden stand and the sturdy base,
To the glorious flame and the ever fading light.
The final birth of dreams that was...Read More

Like that of old evil rising from the devil’s own abyss;
 a brimstone filled mouth, he emerged from the shadows of the alley. Bold

Fog holds you prisoner
Tide is coming in
Still, you poke the charcoal
To stir the ash again

I can't hold the waves back
Or try to understand
Why you haunt the wreckage here
Half-buried in the sand

If you stop dredging up the past
I will forget those...Read More

He’s got a whole lotta pencil
But he ain’t got no lead

She was aroused by what he said

When she took him to her bed
Although she had great talent
She could not raise the dead

A SPIRACLE LEAP

The spiral staircase made her high heels sing.
Round and round, Suzette tapped a snazzy dance.
Her smile sparkling, ears dangling with butterfly wings.

About My Girlfriend
About my girlfriend and her attitude

She has one of those screaming pretty

Halloween creepy stringy hair 

And a thing in her head called an eye

One droops, hangs or even dangles

I can't say if there are two

It is difficult remembering birth dates

For A Brother
In the valley of the forging,
where march those men of tin,
a sculptor moulds his men of clay,
and clay their hearts within.
On beds of angels' wings they sleep,
as children work the thread,
and artists paint in oils of hope
that they might raise...Read More
