Even though you had some reasons
to see who checked your backs
Against God executed orders
Why didn't you hold Lot's hand?
Why didn't you throw your sandal-
Whose wrap you trie to tie?
And hung on Lot's shoulders?
Staring at Your husband's neck
The neck-
Which you've touched...Read More

when the other students were absorbed in school work,
I happened to look up
and caught a young man
        staring at me.

He is a young man who seldom comes to class,
but the times he does...Read More

Following the tumor blooms
that muted my throat and gut,
I duct taped my mind
to the wordless, I put my head down 
charging at daggers, and
thanks to pain bullets and cancer bombs
my thoughts are catching a little headwind.

I'm looking at a sea...Read More

Wonder Downer
Wonder if there is a world
where there is leaves but know trees
Where skies replace the seas
Turning wonder sarcastic with a won derrr
Taking a word from this sentence and using it to
form the start of the next
Elephants with giraffe necks
Startling the...Read More

Falling in love felt like crossing the longest ocean
My nerves just couldn't break out of the shell
I thought it insecure, terrifying and probably depressive
Yet the thought of warm and tight hugs impressed me 
The cuddling and staring at someone like...Read More

A River Runs Through Us
For our journey to wisdom of happiness
From birth beings many challenges  face
Some times making merry in plains
And some times dropping with fear like falls.

On its way not knowing what come may
But moving from day to day
Meeting serene flowers of...Read More

She said it was just a poem
But her naked vulnerability 
Was all too real; I felt the chill
As the sun quickly set behind
Her cold and bare silhouette 
The dark lake like a noose
Strangling sweet memories
Until only a thought remained
As she...Read More

The eyes are opened
Hands clasping
Reaching for a touch
Mind just wandering somewhere 

Nowhere maybe

Who’s to know

Thoughts of endless thinking 

Staring into space 

Unanswered words 
As if to speak to no one 

The eyes are opened 
Looking empty
Despair feeling
With endless medication...Read More

Poetry's a tough business, you know
   Each new poem reinvents the wheel

I never made it across
I never made it across

There are cracks in the pavement everywhere I walk. 
The road goes up and down and up.
I don’t have the strength to continue to talk.
Neither do I have the will to be strong enough.

Premium Member My heart flutters
I see her wink
  My heart flutters
She bats her eyelashes
  My knees are butter

Sultry, she strolls toward me
  O, sublime, supreme ecstasy --
She deigns to speak, "Prithee,
  Who you staring at, retiree?"

You hug your child and kiss the wife 
And smile to yourself, what a wonderful life
Straighten your tie, polish your shoes
Check your phone for any news.

There’s no clouds to darken your day
Your life is well, just child’s play
Your future bright...Read More

Heavily broken bits strewn across the memories,
but tiny shards of life, shattered fragments,
arranged so carefully deep in her beleaguered mind.
Where once stood two reflections 
staring from the maquillage stained glass
now dances one illuminate soul.
Allowing the fading music to fill her,

What makes a word?
Who made each word?
Someone had to, right?
It may have been Adam and Eve.

Or perhaps they sat around staring at apples and fig leaves.
Maybe they hummed, and marched and sang nonsense songs.
Maybe they started making words out of...Read More

Hey man. Take this.

under a fractured street light,
with shattered pieces of clear glass, scattered
at the nexus of an obscure dark freeway offramp,

Winter Comes Early
Winter came early…
Its heavy coat
Sealing in the cold
The sky
More visible
Its view not the same
The blue faded gray
With distance in charge
And the wind
The wind never stops
The wind
Never whispers
Like in summer
Sneaking up from behind
Touching your neck
Reclaiming your soul
The winter wind
Pushes and shoves
With...Read More

Going Without
With over-abundance and all kinds of addictions staring me in the face,
I like to, just occasionally, make do or go without, 
Even when I don't have to.

I sometimes even pretend I have no car,
No matter what the weather.

Laying down, on my back, on my bed 
Eyes open, staring at nothing, disturbed in the head 
Hunting season, bloody reason, landscape turned red 
Out in the hall, clock on the wall

like Heaven and Earth,
could only be universally transcendent
creative energy

If also unitarian immanent
recreative integrity.

This may appear to be a glitch
to those who believe
we have a manifest divine destiny
to grow
grow and multiply
without concurrent responsibility
to harmony within one shared web of life,

Admit One

He stares at the scene on the wall,
obscene shadows projecting private Revelation.
Bony fingers giving emphatic
He turns to the window to see the glowing eyes 
staring in.
It's Sarzabella! Up in the tree.
Looking for the quickest way to a bowl of something.
