causes bile to roil and roll, the bowels of my...Read More

Man On A Mission
Written By:  D. Collins 1/2/19


A wanna-be Gangsta is the only requirement.
To bring  a heavy-hitter out of retirement.
The last person you'd want repelling from trees.
A man on a mission in camouflaged fatigues.


Trained to lie in the cut, and master...Read More

Premium Member CHILDHOOD LAMENT
attracted to her fingers
and slippery as an eel
its one dead eye stares at her
— the silver dollar

lonely child spoons dirt over
the sandwich bag zippered shut
there’s naught burial at sea
— two sticks form a cross

The Spell of Love
Long ago in a land not near,
There was a young man whose looks made people sneer.
Through the whistling forest he went to find a sorceress out west,

So he worked...Read More

Melted Ice Cream Promises
You swear your word is solid
as a silver serving spoon
Well, why does it always feels like
another mis-spoken dog day afternoon
		Hotter than July

		Cast iron sky

Butter pecan words
all dressed up in their Sunday best lie

The game you’re playing has already been scoped.
A man like me has been around the block.

When I was young and hearty,
I once sowed a measly seed,
And saw with awe
the paltry seed grow into
a beautiful flowering tree
permeating all around
sweet fragrance
pleasing to the soul.

a shiny silver dollar,
And with bated breath
waited to see if it grows

Silver dollar orbits full,
illuminates a slumbered trail.
Like tidal rhythms I feel the pull.

no conflict can be found.

The daily worries, stress and fears
