Alba Gal swam down to the plane
It was the plane that brought her here
The remains of her Comet jet
In thousands of pieces at the ocean bottom

But how Alba Gal and the others
Lost their...Read More

a growling beast
she described her work as creating creatures
using her efforts to summon the greatest fear
of people
she wanted her audience to believe her
and she wrote with an effort to
envision the deepest and darkest
feeling of fear and loneliness

so that...Read More

You are so beautiful
You are so beautiful like Helen of Troy
So brainy, special, and unique
Nobody can compete you

She was lost in her own eyes
Bang!! From no where a stone strike the mirror 
Shattering it into many pieces...Read More

Nightmare are dreadful things
They creep into subconscious minds
And tear at sanity's fragile strings 
Turning our thoughts to things unkind

I was a teacher of children small
And loved the years I spent with them
But soon after leaving I recall
That nightmares started my...Read More

True freedom can feel like an exquisite jail
Our inhabited space bound by bars we drink in.
Child’s nutrition once favored, a lap dance now passé,
Our restaurants change with new owners, or chefs find
New orbits, food loved fades as children leave home...Read More

Strange Weather 

The camels are swimming, 
and who knew...
they knew how?
What a surprise...
to all that stood by, 
watching them cross the desert, 
like ducks on a pond. 

Careful and fearful, 
some should be, 
as the sucking sand, 
has grown hungry.

I make a perfect dry martini,
I read and write and speak Français,
All my suits, and shirts, and shoes are custom made.
I own a Porsche and Maserati,
A house on Acapulco Bay
With scores of floors of marble tile that's all inlaid.

What is that noise?
I have heard it before?
In the ramblings...

I must get up and seek it out.
I rise like the house is on fire...
but in fear of being alive, 
but dead still. 
I rush.

We are not all equal. 
Some can dance on a wire...
above the crowd, 
Some can swim...
all the way to China. 
While others,
make food that feeds...
many every day, 
or take the hearts...
from some, 
to place in others.

Premium Member Can a Fool Descibe Love
Can I describe Love?

A path of the fool,
Words expressing sensation,
Shimmering spark of sun, diamonds on a pool,
Red bird lifts head, water elations,

Thoughts emerge from where?
Whether image, pain, longing desire,
Reality skirts away, with a wide tear,
Smoky haze, warmth to the core,...Read More

Looking at You, I See An Honest Man
Looking into your eyes, I see a determined man
spurned by an arrogant father, who ignored him.
Your eyes are a porthole of courage and restraint.

Looking at your face, there a flash of goodness
when your young son reaches up to be held....Read More

Did you see?
Did you look?
What do think?
They are so…   …   ?

Words heard directly, 
indirectly or by accident, 
but never by intent. 
Not things you would say…
to anyone’s face,
especially theirs.
Not things you would sing.
