Shapely Legs

Those oh so shapely legs give me fits.  
I would die just to see where they quits.  
I can't but fantasize 
'cause I know that the prize 
lies close by, up front near where she sits.

When we get drunk, we fall 
Asleep. When we fall a—

When we commit no sin,

Reconciliation
Your touch today felt safe for the first time
In what seemed to be a lifetime of numb refusal
Conscious forgiveness
Liberation from bitterness
Encapsulates and shelves the pain
Enabling intimacy 
No longer naive but adapted

Storm Chaser
Their wind doesn't make your climate
That's just how storms roll
Turning over mole hills and mountains
Looking for change

Dandelion Dance
(10-line Blitz, adapted for teaching young poets the structure)


Dancing is what I love
Dancing in the air
Air above
Air below
Below me is a cloud
Below it is the ground
Ground that holds
Ground that grows
Grows my seeds
Seeds for next spring...

Life and Death

As is the generation of leaves
So is that of humanity
The wind scatters the leaves on the ground
But the live timber burgeons with leaves
Again in the season of spring returning
So one generation of men will grow while another dies

Homer

William A Cleator once lost his entire memory of his identity.
Afterward, William A Cleator underwent years of intensive therapy.
William A Cleator adapted and was "cured" inevitably,
when he was resurrected as TheKidster, Billy.

Eyes
Never mind my eyes 
They tell a story they use to see 
The haven’t quite adapted to the fact
That everything changed completely 
And though they appear to say I’m in love 
It's simply a habit I must rid myself of 
I need to see you in a new light 
Not so blinding that I can’t see what’s wrong

I'm Still Me
Who I was
Is who I am
What I said
Was not a scam

I'm still me
I've not replaced
My true identity
Is still in place

Look deep inside
You shall see
Your daughter, your sister
All of me

Don't be confused
By subtle change
I've only adapted
To this life of derange

The Desert
i miss you like
the desert misses the rain 

ive adapted to 
live without you 
ive buried everything 
we grew 
and if we meet again,
disaster will strike
but there is one thing 
about the end:

i will still be here,
i will benefit from
disaster, 
and you will be the 
one coming back 
to me...

Scars
Appreciate your own deepest scars
without which, you could never be you.
The marks, left by past on your soul
which burned over and often, till adapted to.
Never insist on letting others know.
They never gonna feel it like you.
The scars that gifted nothing but pain;
in whose trials you found your strength....

Lover's Complaint

Your long term plans, I have not seen ‘em.  
And all those love vows, you don't mean ‘em.  
You have only got eyes 
for my long limber thighs, 
and that small bit that lies between ‘em.

For millions of years the dinosaurs thrived,
but when a meteor struck earth, all the dinosaurs died.
Tiny rodent like mammals adapted and survived,
evolving into many varied species of every shape and size.
From these tiny little creatures would evolve you and I.
It was a new dawn. The age of the mammals had arrived....

Death Metal
Solid fused, joined heat flamed blue,
metallic ice cured new robotic shoe.
Shots in silence, unseen rapid fire,
enslaved micro machines for hire...

Artificially ignorant a mechanical demise,
bio adapted hand processed data of lies.
a recharged battery still has to die,
why is that robot waving to us good-bye???

Reason
Reason: It saves austere
and transparent phrases 
from the filthy discord
of tortured words—opens 
congealed fists of the past. 
All is new—the bright sun

it maybe..
        self-denial
nothing remains
          but regret
longing 
         with desire:
thoughts
day-dreams
          mere memories
          spoken
                 by chance
curious pulses
            in me
of which..
      no escape..
       ...and
             ....yet

Hop and Hide
Hop and Hide
(10-line Blitz, adapted for teaching young poets the structure)

Easter bunny hops
Easter bunny finds
Finds a soft, grassy patch
Finds a great place to hide
Hide the eggs well
Hide them under leaves
Leaves of a great, big tree
Leaves that have fallen down
Down into the green they go
Go look around, good luck!
