Playing way in grandmas pungent garden green, 
Amidst sprays of scarlet marigolds and in between. 

Just above me. Ah, far enough they come from.

Tender the Sky
Pain resonates in the mud. Unbalances
you, sticks you in centuries one can only
imagine. Toppled spheres atop
consecrated pews littered with charred
Easter missalettes. Doesn’t count as
abstract art, your canvas. Bleeds, 
splattered hostile wails, upended 
concrete and tea whorled into one. 
Colombo, port...Read More

Hankering hordes of hungry hovering hawks haunt hoodoos in Utah. 
Underfed California condors cruise canyon cataracts for corpses.
Nesting, starving swallows swiftly search for slime and straw in Saginaw.
Gorging ravenous ravens roam Wrangell’s razor ridges in Alaska.
Eager pelicans patrol and plunge...Read More

A train whistle riles up the dozing , dogs
They bray like coon hounds then shiver back to sleep
A honeysuckle screen quivers and dreams
The boys and the dogs are off to round up sheep

Smokey silence hisses with gas lamplight
Pipes on porches...Read More

The Silly Farmer
Awoken was the farmer one bright and early dawn,
Restless and he couldn’t sleep,
So he thought he’d mow the lawn.

He went into the garden and got down upon his knees,
Much to surprise to the farmer’s wife,
He was cutting it with his...Read More

Then crown Napoleon Bonaparte Emperor of France,
Who commands the French forces in wars raged across Europe.

Cowboys, Made of Awesome
Some modern folks, when they hear his name,
will roll their eyes and look ashamed,
thinking the cowboy is uncivilized,
with his hats, and guns, and round-up rides.
That somehow they are beyond the stuff,
to good for the wild, and the rough,
following some unwritten...Read More

Appoint the piggy snouts,

and lord, he knows no fear!
