Saturday morning, early, 
we sat around the toob…(tv)
We laughed. 

Road runner was too fast, 
the coyote was always too slow. 
Thundar was a Barbarian, 
and Strawberry was a shortcake.

Shaggy chased bad guys, 
Scooby was a hero.
Foghorn was a wise rooster,...Read More

don’t call him a baby...
don’t make fun of his tears...
his soul’s tender —
he runs and hides,
under a chromatic beanbag
with a dark emotional spectrum.

when he returns to play Sleeping Queens,* he
sniffles, wipes tears on his sleeve (and yours)
“You hurt my feelings.”

Vehicles, muscled cars were built, to be fast;
creatures of iron and steel; 
the wildest beasts.

In the day of manufactured power, Lynx and Jaguar raced; thunderbirds flew low to ground with wings, 
as fast as, a road runner.

The mighty Chevy of...Read More

Hardly, a Human Being!

Get a hammer and garrote that 
That demonic smartphone, I propose.
That mutant who seduces you,
With most amorous rings!
Put the sultry siren to rest,
Tune into the real world, as it's
simply the best!

Above all else do not invite family or

Max is mad at Molly
Samantha’s sore at Seth 
Freida’s freaking out at Frodo
While  Hobbits hold their breath

She hits him with her pail
Humpty cracks open Dumpty
For drinking all his ale

I’m a late bloomer! So this was an early attempt
at writing poetry, long before I took classes.
I had small kids and this is what I wrote about them.


Road Runner down the street
with lots of en-er-gy
riding on his hot wheels
jumping in...Read More

explosive action
sore coyote howls at moon
slips off precipice

the road runner splits his side
taunting infernal “beep beep”

This Looney Toons Life
Somedays I feel like a female
Bugs Bunny, 
saying "whats up doc" while
confident and cool,
while other days more like a
girl Daffy Duck, 
feeling more like a tongue twisting fool,
while out shopping I feel like
an Elmer Fay Fudd,
almost always on the hunt,...Read More

Acme To The Rescue
I fondly remember Road Runner cartoons
That amused us until weekend afternoons
Wile E. got just desserts
On that barren desert
But I wished Acme mailed him Kevlar balloons

I Like
I like the way you always remember that I like
my orange juice with pulp, my popcorn without butter,
and that I can’t stand squash – 
fried, steamed or otherwise.
I like that you understand without asking why I 
sometimes cry when I...Read More

Thats all folks - Porky Pig
Porky Pig has a stutter,
Oh how people did laugh.
Cos his farewell "that's all folks"
Could last a minute and a half.

He had such a problem
Hi sttttt uuu ttttt err  got worse,
That they introduced a sidekick
Daffy Duck was such a curse.

The Poem Lives on
Maybe the poem dies 
as soon as it's read 
and the poet dies 
as soon as it is written.  
Maybe the reader lives 
vicariously through metaphors 
that linger like embers 
from a pre forest fire flame. 
Maybe the heat we...Read More

I’d like to know – does a penguin have knees
Can a rhinoceros – if he has a twitch
Raise his back leg to get at his itch

Owls, supposedly the wisest of all birds in the forest.
Although known as being smart they aren't the greatest.
Some birds run some can't even fly, yet they are cute.
Ostriches with their long necks, white top fur they hunt and execute.

Wile E Coyote
My name is Wile E. Coyote and I fall off cliffs.
Some consider it misfortune, the Road Runner considers it a gift.
Those damn Acme products never work.
When they backfire, I look like a jerk.
I'm getting sick and tired of always suffering...Read More

In real life this is a comical fellow, sort of strange
Most know him from the cartoons, tricking the old coyote
More to our feathered friend, after a victory then the usual "beep beep"
As he goes at lighting speed across the range

The Road Runner
Been all over this map, from dot to dot
Red and blue lines, like his old tired eyes
Running late up and down every interstate
It is a living, like it or not
Another truck stop, burger and a order of fries
Rather hauling cattle...Read More

Where am I ?
I see buzzards circling up high...
The sun so hot we could all die.

Nites are long for a guy.
The stars seem brighter in this sky.

Lizards run to and fro,
but there is no where to go !

I look in the cattles' eyes...
