Premium Member How Do I Find a Girl
How do I find a girl? He asked me.
He is alone on Valentine's Day.
He is fifty-six years old.

Maybe you are turning them away
By calling them Girls I told him.

Minor League Hockey Sonnet
Small city arena long out of date,
that is where this B-league team plays their games,
young men learning, hopes for fortune and fame.
I watch the practice, they shoot and they skate,
remember back when I was at that weight…
Here at least the...Read More

Premium Member What Do I Lose
When I can't find the locksmith of my choice, only one referred by others.
What's so special about him.
After all,
couldn't I open the locked door with my own Slim Jim?
If I choose,  I can make sure he's licensed in the...Read More

Me, Myself and Ice
Only the cold crunching
of the fresh snow bunching,
and the tired leather boots
as I take that first step

Can be heard right here
by no other frozen ear,
for away I rushed off
to find silence instead

And all that is harsh
exists not on this marsh,
where...Read More

Premium Member Roller Skate Magic
roller skate magic
brought my parents together
both of them surprised

my mother was not looking
my father was
a voice told him she was the one

he could not take his eyes off her
she noticed him not

my father did some research
discovered she worked...Read More

Premium Member Christmas Town
Christmas Town is ever bright,
so many vivid colored lights 
and fresh snowfall is such a sight;
how it invites, how it invites.

The houses there are never plain,
with colors like gingerbread, cinnamon and flame,
Victorian or simple A-frame;
no two the same, no two...Read More

Premium Member A Night to Remember
It can't have been the scallops
Or the rump of Islay lamb,
Washed down with white Rioja
Followed by sweet meringue.
It wasn't the skate au poivre
Or smoked salmon canapes
Nor garlic stuffed green olives
Or the double chocolate glaze.
The ruby red barolo 
Is surely not...Read More

you need to stop spending money
on stupid street wear and shoes
Supreme, Jordans and Yeezys
are a waste of your dues
your closet is full of hypebeast clothes
that you will outgrow in a year
$1300 for two pairs of shoes is way too much
you...Read More

Purple People Eater

My car. 
It is great. 
It takes me everywhere, 
Like a roller skate. 
I can not wait to go…
Again and again. 

We travel from this side to that side, 
The state is far and wide. 
She is hard...Read More

Not Every Day is Perfect

I took my pad to the park today. 
I wanted to find an idea for a book. 
I was blocked…you know… stuck. 

I walked outside, and looked up into the sky. 
The clouds threatened rain.

Premium Member Childhood Memories

Childhood memories are always wonderful to recall with a smile,
like our big Victorian home;
on a shady street and the park at the end,
I would roller skate down a hill that seemed high.
And there was snowball cat;
and my dolls and...Read More

Tired of feeling sleepy today August 17th 2019
Tired of feeling sleepy today - August 17th, 2019

Lashed with fatigue,
eye cannot fend off lethargy
hazy, hot, humid weather zaps
mental physical, and spiritual energy
even men of cloth
various and sundry clergy.

Undoubtedly summoning Parson Brown
currently out of season,
though stratospheric demand
for his person now
unprecedented...Read More

If I may be so bold…when you start to get a little old
you find yourself waking up in the middle of the night.
But for whatever reason…depending on the season
you may be treated to some fascinating sights.

I grew up believing America is so great
Only to learn that its people live in a divided state
So many innocent loved ones dying at an alarming rate
Why won't congress put assault weapons on their plate
For grieving families, it's much too...Read More

Premium Member I am not a home-maker
I am not a home-maker,
never will be.
If I was bad at maths or snorkelling 
you would not judge me,
if I couldn’t do sodokus,
I would simply avoid them -
and my failure in that area
would not be my poison.
If I couldn’t skate...Read More

Two skating sisters, one was brilliant
The other just middling and that was not good enough
In a world that demands perfection.
The average sister raged planned retribution and had
A pair of skates made of gold, but with a hidden flaw
They broke on...Read More

Sometimes people ask me... What's in your purse...
So I tell them the best that I can...
Lipstick, chapstick, matchstick
What’s in your purse?
Billfold, change purse, money counter, and clip?

To No Avail
Is a lie in its intention,
or its desired end result

Is deception ever lessened,
if the harm is never felt

Can you skate by blame or judgment,
if your evil plans then fail

Or are you even more at fault 
—when you lie to no...Read More

Premium Member HE HAD THIS DREAM
Growing up he had this dream…to be a millionaire…
He’d live in a beautiful house, 
drive a fancy car 
and have wealth beyond compare.

He’d skate through a life of happiness, never wear a frown
There’d be no reason to be sad…for he’d...Read More

Conformity; a box; a structure- the structure
A definition; a mandate; an unwritten set of rules; guidelines
A single path woven by society 
An invisible path only discovered when one strays
The oppression; the judgement; the criticism of simply being

Oh, Winter it is time for you to put away your white coat,
and to roll up your tattered blanket once so beautiful;
time for me to put away my cozy comforter;

May is known for beautiful warm weather,
The sun shines in the blue sky.

The gardens are filled with beautiful flowers,
Favorites like roses, lilies and wild flowers.

Where boyfriend and girlfriend  are seen,
