Off the Cuff
May be Rough
But you can do it

It's not absurd
To use a word
You just make it fit....

A symptomatology buff
one morning was feeling quite rough
a cold his prognosis
no strict diagnosis
just one he thought up off the cuff.

BUBBLEY'S REFRAIN
Drink earth's grape - and liquor's melting
of the sense's grim
clap the heart and soul and dance
the music's justly whim
moisten now life's hurried stance
with temporary oil 
lift the spirit - tilt the glass
spin day's doldrums - kiss the sin
for 'morrow enters still again
the mundane and the rough
tonight - you soothe the palette
by living off the cuff...

Up to Snuff
Everything can feel so tough
When someone isn’t up to snuff.
Your best may not be good enough
Although you try and try.

May suddenly seem raw and rough,
A truth you can’t deny.

Because you lack your normal stuff,
You just might not be up to snuff
And that’s the reason why.

catholicism reflects true catechism?
His remark, they say, compares to Trump
wishing for an opportunity to dump
a useless and outdated Constitution 
with his own less impeding substitution.

The Saddest Smile
I watched as reason
drained your face,
frowns cracked
to reveal a single tear
buried under the layers


I witnessed as the dye
dripped off the cuff
twin splashes of blue
scarred my cornea’s


I prayed as the colour
drained from your mouth,
as its corners 
found the downturn


I cry as you dance
to nightshade,


always believing 
the rhythm
would bring you back


and smiling in Technicolour
