Premium Member Spotted We Are
A spotted hyena escaped from the zoo.
Along with a spotted skunk, so that made two.
A spotted moray sounded the loud alarm.
A spotted bass swam off with some charm.
Spotted fever ticks transmitted some fever,
Spotted swine asked if I was a believer

Premium Member Daddy Eyes
Daddy’s hazel eyes accuse me of mischief
Faeries show me no hint of Mommy.
Her hair is naturally curly.
Mine is straight and coarse.

Possible glints of Grandma’s hurt look peer at me.
She always looked like she had just been beaten
I peek closer, trying...Read More

"Twas the night before Christmas...
When Mrs. Claus had got drunk 
She went to a party...
With a hyena and a skunk
She laughed all night long... 
Till, something had stunk 
'Twas the laughing hyena... 
When he pulled out his junk

Premium Member Compromise
(in the early sixties)
Written: by Miracle Man

Oft times I’ve faced those,
consumed with rage.
Sometimes I allowed myself,
to enter into that stage.

Compromising then,
 was such a massive load.
I thought “My way or the highway,
and you can pick the road”.

In those adolescent years,
I...Read More

(old adages)
Composed: by Miracle Man

I’ve been told, when younger,
”I could start a fight in an empty House.”
Because often “I would cloud up and rain knuckles,”
and later “was a sight for sore eyes”
Sometimes “I just had a conniption fit”...Read More

Premium Member Creatures and I
The deer, the fox, the skunk also
Met one day at the watering hole.
Owl and squirrel watched from oak tree.
Raccoon showed up for tea at three.
Butterfly and dragonfly showed up too.
When they got scared, off they flew.
It was like an animal...Read More

Halloween Night Walkies
When out this night amidst howling winds, foggy dew and dark,
Cautious since creatures above and ahead make us wary,
We'll slip through soggy autumn hued leaves to the park,
Past houses with orange lights, ghostly draped strands and witch's cauldrons scary.

Near Sainthood

translation by Kanu V. Prajapati and Michael R. Burch

On the subject of mystic philosophy, Ghalib,
your words might have seemed deeply profound
and we might have pronounced you a saint...

Last Night 
Faiz Ahmed Faiz

Last night, your memory stole into my heart
as spring sweeps uninvited through barren gardens
as morning breezes revive dormant deserts

We left here when I was a kid
Six thousand miles, we had lived
I swapped the trickle of coarse beach sand
For a dying snowflake in a glowing hand
Kids thought of me as being different
I thought they're all the same, ignorant

The Tweeter

He said he loved her, 
though he didn't know her.
Sent her a pic to prove it,
but he was skunk-drunk.

She tweeted back;

Upset he retorted;

A guy said he was a Capitalist lackey.
He tweeted:
“Drop dead socialist donkey.”

His wit was razor sharp that night.

Emerging Yellow

When I look at the charred plasma 
of a bare knuckled wind
I forget yellow

I forget the smeared tone 
of skunk cabbage
rising through fog and mulch
or how in Chiang Mai
the river at sunset
transforms a blistered heat
into the stippled gold of temple...Read More

A polecat and a skunk met one day.
And why are you here? They both did say.
Knowing not of zoos,
They worked out in two’s,
And became best friends in every way.

The Shed
We purchased a shed for our yard.
To fill it was not very hard -
The sleds and the bikes
And the things no one likes
With a flimsy old lock standing guard.

To mice, it's a winter retreat 
And last summer, we thought it...Read More

Guess my reputation could be sweeter, but hey-
At least I'm not a skunk!
