The Devil is Booed Out of Heaven
New Moon new, new tune
It’s a lovely afternoon
New broom sweeping the town
And spiritual cleansing is scattered all around
The wind is blowing lightly 
And the race is running politely
The crowd is out once more
And people are cruising from door to door
A...Read More

Premium Member Found a Skull the Other Day
I found a skull the other day
Was it human? I think no way.
Twenty-two bones, and all of them say
Come on down, honey, we want to play.

It was a merry skull, truly gay.
Rolling along the South Side Bay
In life he told...Read More

Allegheny rail train has been rolling along since dawn.
I can hear the patchy sounds of the horn ushered by the wind.
Sounds at first are muffled but become distinct as the train gets closer.

Gulls hovering over the waves that clash and...Read More

Embraced
Your Dream Catchers
Have been tattooed on our culture

They Grace our hides
Our windows
And our rear view mirrors

Protecting us
Shielding us
Defining us

Circles
Web woven
Sinew sewn
Brandishing
Your Eagle's feathers

Rolling along
With the nightmare
In the mirror
Fading in the distance

Flat Tire
I was rolling along
just fine, thank you
until I came across you

Like a nail in the road, you poked a vicious
hole in my heart, and I went flat

And it was a rough ride
for a while there
and noisy, too-
ka-WHUMP
ka-WHUMP
ka-WHUMP
my heart pathetically
loped along

Ah, writing a poem that just rattles on
no matter the reason or rhyme or a song

just rolling along like a big mindless ball
or pieces of paper, blown by the wind

What a great idea at St Mary's by the Sea,
Surplus food is offered for free.
Take some out or put yours in
If too old, there's a pig food bin.

Thoughtfully built community cupboard,
Snug shelter for all that is stored.
So, no need to...Read More

Where Is All The Tolerance
We're rambling and we're ready
Everybody hop on the bus
Rolling along, rocking steady
Ready Freddy we're all standing up

But are we lost in the translation 
Frenzy spilling from the cup
Drowning out a once great nation
"Where is all the tolerance"

We fell asleep in each other's arms, again.
My arm extended and sat my hand down
firmly against your hip bone. 
I loved the way that felt, even with my elbow
strained, and locked in place. It felt like home.
And it must have...Read More

It Was Only a Dream

The days of rush and running;
The airport, the hugs the drive.
Our special gourmet lunch place.
It was only a dream.

The twinkling lights, pajama nights,
Planning presents, paper crinkling.
Lingering laughter, long goodbyes.
It was only a dream.

Breakfast out and you’re...Read More

Mentors with the BeeTrees

From NorthWinds
come darkening winter
as newborn discontent
waiting to spring forth.

From SouthWinds
come summer's diastasis
climax of full-born wisdom,
contentment for and from all four directions
spread across sleeping hearts
of each nighttime regeneration.

From normalizing WestWind toward East colonializing
patriarchal harvest
comes abundant fall in grace

Third Wheel
Often the third wheel between two people 
Rolling along the median of life 
The epicenter of two separate goals 
Neither lane resembling my own 
The wheel that no one wanted to steer 
Loneliness on the road of several

Just a travelin on
I don't know where I am headed

Some alone and some with ones by my side

Each new road I have taken
Have tested me to my limits

The Bruised Name

wounded from time after time is kicked and trampled

Love In A Far Off Place-Sail Around The World
The maps are spread before us now.
Shall reckless abandon intercede?
We'll sail to every shore somehow.
Go wherever the oceans lead.

Preordained to find you here.
As soul mates share a bucket list.
Guided by joy and without fear.
Blowing through the morning mist.

Just like Noah,...Read More

beads
A bead of red rolls down my arm,
an eloquent prayer, a scream.
Alive in a way the arm is not
coming awake in a dream.

A drop of swirling living cells,
abandoning a foundered host,
drawing a line on the curve of meat,
segregating machine from...Read More
