Back Pain Cure
The pendulum swings both to and fro
over a chest breathing in so slow,
and as the blade lowers down
a smile is seen, not a frown...
breast reduction for a price so low!

Experts insist on a bovine contribution in the war against climate
I'm Olive, a once flatulent cow.
Spinach is all I eat now.
That silly green grass
is a thing of the past,
for a new wind is blowing this hour.
To methane reduction all power!
If you're a cow too,
show assent by a moo.

What could be odder
than this switch to new fodder?...

Witty outgoing Creative sensitive
Love my Husband cat and being outside
better schooling for kids Bungy Jumping,Recycling, pollution reduction
I get scared sad and giddy
Afraid of small places Death and Spiders
Things I wanna do are bungy jumping hang gliding surfing

A pithy moon
on a skull
to unmask the alien,
blacker than coal.

A pregnancy reduction
was needed
to prune out
the motor plan of the moving
target, who had-

a neural circuitry
for obstructing
the light. Can you
transcend a prude who will not
accept a celibate ?

Not so sad, a beautiful face
abandons the darkness.

quiet and gentle osmotic percolation 
of magnetic electricity within form
accompanied by ecstatic bliss elation
hypnotic maya delusion slowly disarms 

with reduction of narrow egoic craving
rooted in fleeting identity attachment 
rapturous bliss ignition within continuing  
we flow resistanceless in contentment

Premium Member Then Tensions will Ease
Let everyone love his neighbor as he loves himself
And folks once more turn to God, to each other for help
Then tensions will ease, with a reduction in stress
   Yet when that will be ~ I wouldn't dare guess

This is the process
which seems vital
to our time and culture..
We need the experience
that perceptions are
what we know of
the world just now..
The world becomes
subjective..and we find
it has always been so..
So we reduce
the seeming world
to perceiving as object..
Then..that object to
that in which
and as which it is:

The years slowly crept by
 looking back it came fast
I did not realize that time
can move that fast 
to leave us wondering
in a daze pondering
where did it go.
Each day seems faster 
each night a blur
children grew
grandchildren too
who was to know
age would start to show
in  reflection
--- voicing a rejection
want a retraction
a age reduction
on the close
of another year.

purified lithium


 chemical crane,
 lithium albatross.

 iodized magnetic zion
  in my head.

  i'll run for days,
 inside a solar haze.

corrosive reduction 
under the sun.

the old search for
 the purified lithium.

metallic filter to drain
 the silt.

empty the heart of all
 its guilt.

so salt the cracker and 
absolve the sin.

 an alkaline base full 
 of wrinkled skin.

Rapid Life
Life, an infirm spark, 
An unsteady flame, 
A powerful blaze, 
Increasing in speed and ability.

To be precise, 
The incomprehensibility, 
The knowledge gathered, 
The continuity and discretion;
The unity, and the strict subordination,
With the reduction of friction and of material at a personal cost,
These are raised to the optimum point;
It is in the strict functionary direction of life.

Sitting Duck
I see the perfect girl, yet I still refuse to accept the invitation
The means to acquire her beauty would not reveal themselves
the descending power did not fall down upon me
Lack of time, prior attachments, and incompetence had left me a sitting duck
now I sit... left with impertinent, inconsistent, wandering thoughts
without the greatness of her impression
or a quick return promising their reduction

Body Prayer

God of guts, God of fingernails, God of hair; God of this whole creature, this fruit of a branching flesh – garden with us as we grow, bloom, and wither. In its right season, its time of reduction, as the body-begotten fades, prepare us a place of a finer dust, prepare for us a feather-light and worthy image, a temple enduring. Make ready for us a place where mind enters once more as wisdom's child.

A Minority of One
Paul was at the office when the
first atomic bomb fell and when 
Muntz TVs replaced console radios

and the first man landed on the moon.
He saw the first big computers trucked in 
and locked in a top-secret room.

Paul was an accountant for 50 years
but the day came when he was told 
he was part of a reduction in force. 

Two guards carried his boxes out.
They told Paul in the parking lot  
he was the only one reduced.

A Refining Fire
I used to imagine that the body
was a sort of fleshy gospel, bound together
by mind and ligaments.
Years of smutch, and oily reduction,
daily, a thin scum to be skimmed -
a process of dross elimination,
but each year there is a teaspoonful of loss
that cannot be explained, made up or accounted for,
more a lessoning and not an alchemy.
If this kind of culinary reduction
keeps losing the fat of me
I will be as nothing,
and maybe that’s the point.

A whistler went outside to play;
He got a bit carried away.
While playing his whistle,
He fell in some thistle;
I heard that thing three miles away!

A young whistle maker's gone daft!
Seems he lost it while honing his craft.
He upset his chances
For further romances
When he drilled the note holes in the shaft.

A buxom young whistler, all that,
Found her whistle impeded by fat.
She had liposuction
And an ample reduction,
But now she's a little bit flat....

Vladimir Putin finally messes up
Honestly I abhor the Rain
Russia-triggered in Ukraine
A deluge as finishing as A Plague
All its relevance fastened on The Vague…

Vladimir finally choosing to mess up,
All along longing to with the Devil Sup…

Consolingly I believe in Sanction,
Certain it falls not to function;
A trust in more closures of Russia’s Banks
For a corresponding reduction of battle-field tanks;
A booing at Wonderful Russian football
And rejection of their players’ footsteps as they fall.

Premium Member Its The Heart Stupid
It’s The Heart Stupid By: Miracle Man 8/7/2019 Our Country seems filled With guns and hate. The rash of shootings Is like an open floodgate. We see the race card played On almost any given day. But It’s the hearts of men That cause bullets to spray. Taking away the guns Will never be the answer. But the blood of Jesus Can eradicate this cancer. When man’s evil heart Is bent on destruction. The taking of life with guns Will have no reduction.

Prices Going Down
Have you noticed gas prices all over town? At all of the pumps, they are going down. It's a wonderful thing that seems almost unreal. What great news for those who spend time behind the wheel. Whether you drive a car or a truck, it seems like a beautiful stroke of good luck. Lower demand and increased supply cause the reduction. OPEC also will not decrease production. If you drive, you will have a little extra cash. The lower the prices, the bigger the stash.
