to reproduce a baby
only get a porcupine
and a collection of red tapes

She'd turn him into a porcupine...

Porcupine

If you happen across a porcupine,
Staring upon the Milky Way,
It’s because he thinks he’s an Alien,
and longs to return home one day.

Untitled #179 / "It's a snail"
“It’s a snail, crept up on
by a spider, mutating into a
porcupine, being eaten by a jellyfish!”
What a work of art!
I apologize, mere words cannot describe it!

A Different Collaboration
His prickly quills were more than a few,
her black ink was seldom used,
octopus in sink,
porcupine got ink,
their writing poems making headline news.

Yearning hearts will intertwine

Drinking and Playing
Drinking and Playing


Drinking and drinking Irish whiskey and red wine
They all thought they saw a spotted giraffe recline
Statistics say play
Oh ya, come what may
then they started playing with a fat porcupine.

Premium Member Have you Ever Dined with a Porcupine
Have you ever dined with a porcupine?
I mean have had a meal, rather fine?
Maybe not a dinner, but glass of wine?
Did he prefer a soup spoon or a fork with tine?
The reason I’m curious, please don’t wine…
I’ve invited him to your house at a quarter to nine.

Porcupine
Porcupine


With prickly porcupine
I am deeply in love.
To caress her thigh
I put on a glove;
Pricks to wisely cheat
A new generation
To sire or re-create.

A porcupine’s desire
Is God’s wise plan:
Patient men to sire
With abusive woman!

Beluga's Cousin for contest
Not the whitest of whales, but the cutest by far
And a body about the same length as a car
Richly blessed with a beautiful tusk he is crowned		
Which is so huge, a toothbrush that large can’t be found
He’s no porcupine
And his name is divine
Look at the first letter of every line

After the Flood: 2011
That day, rain brought death.
Raging torrent swept away
Lives, homes, happiness.

TV images,
Bring impotent sympathy
For loss, shock and tears.

On a nearby shore —
Little blue boat, torn in half,
A chair up-ended.

Two porcupine fish —
Victims of freshwater flood
Mourned by a small child....

Swallowing Anxiety Implodes the Light Sockets
This frenzy of feeling
this pull of hindsight
is bursting in optics
resounding in light
at the tip of a porcupine
centered explosion
this frenzy of feeling
internal implosion

This fanatic fancy
this race to be found
is shooting star tonguing
and silent of sound
at the tip of the mouth
on the verge of a thought
this fanatic fancy
can never be caught...

Predictable Porcupine
                                                 Predictable Porcupine



                                                  Porcupine strolls by
                                              spikes glowing only at dusk 
                                                 always the same route

I wish...
I wish i coud "moo' at your window;
And let not you sleep
I wish i could be a pussy cat,
And to your room i could creep..
I wish i could be a big brown mouse,
And your dirty socks i'll eat
And when you sleep to your bed i'll climb;
And bite your dirty feet!
I wish i could be a porcupine,
And i'll make you sit on me..
And when you sit and you get hurt;
I bet it's the best scene to see..!!!...

Flashlight: Stranger in the Gangway


The lack of visitors is uterine
and that is why you porcupine
in this dark corner. Here

who can see the cobra
slither from your lips, spray
the phrases of your mind, 

slip back to its moist nest. 
Here, who can hear the jeer
of cheetah eyes. “Come,” 

they cry, “pour on the light.
Your heart I’ll lacerate
with razor fright.”

Spiky hair, brittle waves, porcupine, hedgehog, spiny Anteater, echidna. A kid growing up prickly. The long tongues of children gibe him sharp. Tumbleweed in the schoolyard. Can’t tread him down. Hurts are on the surface like frozen alphabet spaghetti. Thorns and barbs, jagged Jeers, quills quietly quivering the quarry - face tucked into his heart.
