not worthy of the canon
how can you tell me

that these delicious morsels

of proletarian sensibility

are not worthy of the canon?...

To silence
The demons of mars
Through this

Wisdom captured
This lonely star...

My Canon
Of green
Support me
Upon the grass
While rain slides down
Creating on hair strands,
A violin serenade,
Its playing Pachelbel's "Canon"
Oh, a wonderful angelic feel
Raindrops bounce off lashes to play along....

What is White
                  faces tinted by 
          the canon of complexion…
             flesh colored crayons

Note – In the early 1960’s the flesh colored
Crayola Crayon was changed to pink beige
            due to “social concerns”.

His Riches Claimed
A fool
A rich father
A poor boy
A dream
The theater
Of experience
One whines
The other screams
The reckoning
Once predicted
Is here
The world in flames
The fool
Just canon fodder
The boy
  —his riches claimed

Lady of the Manor Reincarnated
Peonies, lavenders, cherry trees
Clef romancing Pachelbel's Canon behind the emerald maze
Summer breeze Tudor breathe
Vavasour Anne, hail thy Lady!
Homecoming carrage drove by quiet road, thus awakens
Ghouls, spirits, elves, butterflies
Celebrating Hazlewood
For thy Lady hath returned....

The pace of belief,
Just tapped
Counsels towards
But from the heart's

Lived over the
Now in the lamb's
Justice to write
home about,
And no more

Holds firm -
Canon of salvation,
And pasture of the
That is why God

Premium Member Winter-Spring Canon
Winter-spring canon 
Incensed along Jacob's Creek
Like watery angels thought less from clouds above
Canopies of light make soft their entrance
In clucking-pig-progging-and-a-yip-yip-yipping
A shuft-and-shushing of large glass doors
Round about our ways of going
Slipping on the wet pages of our
Winter-spring canon...

Premium Member Self portrait / T. C. Canon
I sat myself, by myself…..
Tired, tired of waiting.
Inside I sit like a potted cactus,
Gussied up for the pic.
Don’t know what possessed this dick.

The wide world’s outside
Ancestors pride, the mountains side,
the deserts dance;
yet, here I sit in cowboy? getup?

Like a potted cactus
Gussied up for the pic.

Symphony in the Desert
Ragged notes of unsung sorrow
stretch toward the heavens
in undefined

trails of symphony
aching for forgiveness
follow in pristine  pitch

night sky alive with 
unearthly splendor, eclipsing
moons, stars and planets
in its utter

A canon in perfect D
floods my heart
in answer

I return ragged notes
in gratitude.

What is in the garment of arrogance?
At the hem of the heart
The queen and a dance.

A build of the mind in part
Proud rape of honour
The buttocks and a little fart.

Oh! What a deface of colour
A riot...a great blemish
Circles of evils harbour.

Respect gradual diminish
A state of suicidal shame
Just started is the finish.

What great reward in submission
A canon shot for a vast elevation.

The shift to vernal tone
starts a standoff with eyelashes.   
A sickle moon begins
harpooning the stars.

The unorthodox microlove
brings out a ciliated canon
of faithless interior. The gods
were going to become weary of snowfall.

Punctuating the silence, words
again scream, fly like eagles
in the valley of wounds. How far
the fire will go engulfing the untouchable ?

Problem Child
Sullen and defensive
(what's it to you?)
quietly disappearing

what difference does it make?
[tiny] and inferior
beaten into believing the propaganda
from [un]reliable sources

Her heart knew [stuck in survival mode]
nothing but self loathing and
self preservation.  To her (unknowing) credit.

Regarded as a “loose canon”
by proxy and
so it went.

A miracle.
In God’s eyes.

Called the Old Testament

The other 27 books 
Were written after the time of Christ

New Testament

Demon Lie Exposed
Under the shroud of blind obedience, 
  the Church forever hides

Its loyalty to the Pope and Rome,
  it chides and chides and chides 

Canon Law and its corrupted faith 
  walk proudly side by side….

          “Where a child of eight 
           in parochial school 
           was brainwashed deep inside”

But guilt then crumbled, damnation cursed
  by heavens light deposed

The truth and God now one again 
   —the demon lie exposed
