Lady-Boy
Lady-Boy

I went with my son to Gibraltar
We went for a swim in the water
An errant propeller
Chopped off his old feller
So now I just call him my daughter...

Like A Child
I think like a Buddhist,
  but pray like a nun

I see like the mountain,
  but reach like the sun

I stand like Gibraltar,
  but rage like the sea

And love like a child,
  reborn unto thee

(Villanova Pennsylvania: May, 2017)

No Halter and Will Falter
No Halter and Will Falter

An ego likes leading you to the altar
And may be big as rock of Gibraltar
She had forgotten to wear her halter
Then both of them started to falter.

Gibraltar Crumbling
Oh, I loved her then
I placed her on high
Far above mortals
Where the air was thin
She handled it well

As the years passed
Love was still true
A stranger came
With ill intent

Then she stopped
Loving me
I could see

And my 
Whole world

Fell

the wrath of death's hands
like the lash of sea
erodes the edges
of my weary soul
with its unseen force

i am battered
bruised once again
emotions stir
inside my core

rock to sand
gibraltar
crumbling down

i fight
against

time

Earth trembles in fear
Once-mighty nations
Beset by strong threats
See America,
Defender supreme

Devastated,
Alarmed to see
Their Gibraltar
Wounded, crumbling

USA,
Fighting blades
Of our foes

Treaties
Destroyed

War

now l am afraid

even with an upturned boulder
sitting solid like Gibraltar
the blazing fire 
has not been quenched
Too many pails
have been drenched,
punctured and patched 
while drawing out water
to douse this blazing fire
from raging into a fiery sun
blistering the skin
scorching the minds
while intending 
to obliterate the soul
making the man meaningless
because of your own dark souls...

Look in your eyes unveils a smoldering ember that could make Gibraltar crumble.
One in a million heart that magically kindles fire without matches. Nothing...
Ventured, nothing gained in this rewarding game of love; a four letter word that
Emanates such sweet ecstasy. And no, I don't mean the drug
I
Just
Enjoy
Saving souls
Unrepented to
Saviour is also here for you

THE END OF ISLAM
THE END OF ISLAM 



On the bay beach at Belyounech
Just east of Tangier
From the old whaling Station 
You can see Algeciras and Gibraltar
And there on the beach look up
And see the Rif of the Atlas 
With beyond them ten thousand miles 
Of Sahara sand and muezzins on minarets.
The northern horizon exudes
The smells of hot-dogs 
And the sounds of Pink Floyd.
The south shore on the beach
Is the end of Islam.

The Dune on the Rock where fine grains of time gradually slip revealing footprints of lost vertebrates: an archaic human being - Neanderthal; red deer, aurochs elephants and ibex… crumbling sand unveils extinct past

The Rock
I depend on the rock of Gibraltar
No rock like this 
I know
No rock, no rock, no rock
With  waters flowing so
No rock with waters flowing row
No rock to stabilize my mind
No rock is all I have ever stumbled at
No rock to bring release
No rock to stabilize me
I depend on the rock of Gibraltar
My faith depends on him
There's no rock like him
There's no rock like the rock of Gibraltar
There's no rock, no rock, no rock like him...

I Do Not Speak French
pour it like the sun is dead.
but not
before shaking it well.

wait,
wat is je naam?
my father is half-Dutch.
stay with me, Martinique 
(that name tag is lovely)
I have not been happy.

little umbrellas tickle
my imagination -
Gibraltar or Ithaca
or Room 143 beside yours.

is this safe, Martinique?
fifteen proof is my ceiling
but I do not care.

look,
your skin ring matches mine.
sorry -

Ik ben blij,
but I do not speak French....
