Sex Hex
by Michael R. Burch

Love's full of cute paradoxes
(and highly acute poxes).
Midnight Stairclimber

then—long, long after the sex dies—
the source of endless exercise.

“Make a Sad Song Better”?

It sounds good at first glance but then who do you serve?
To solve other folks ‘problems’ suggests more than nerve!
Do you dream that your wisdom groks nightmares afar,
Your discernments shed light (or trap fireflies in jars?)

Love Life
As the ballast stables, to brace the core
Of railroad ties, ships, ... steadying bases
So moral codes tying the heart, must galore
To ballast our repute from toppling paces.

With divine, must we thrash a devil's creed:
Of Acerbic vows, Sarcasm and Fatal brawl

To write an epigram, cram.
If you lack wit, scram!

Conformists of a feather
flock together.

If every witty thing that’s said was true,
Oscar Wilde, the world would worship You!

Love has the value
of gold, if it’s true;
if not, of rue.

Fierce ancient...Read More

Fully satisfied
I thank my great God
Who suffices me
richly with His grace
always, so timely…

     in His mercy
     and compassion
     for increased faith…

floppers propped by whopper croppers
Once the Sinis floppers' nerves acted up in bunches, 
Scandinavians had no way to head off sucker punches.
Sacks of scamming slapstick, slap bass,
and farcefest, thick and fast, came to pass.
Not a clod of sunstruck dung by a donkey's ass

Morning dew frosts the window,
a beam of light stripes the room-
echoes of bluebirds trickle
among the primeval music-
before the world has woken up

or reflect on that quiet morning
when it's you and nature...Read More

Avarice of Adam
We mere mortals,
Are but temporal beings.
Drowned by the wine of luxuries 
That life has to offer.
That being said, still suffices not
(Countless, numerous sins ongoing
Creating, still dreaming 
Of robots never-ending)
The forgotten warmth near the fireplace
And those which are eternal
Just to be...Read More

An unwanted guest
Hot December with excitement in the air.
Parties, new dresses and meals; a treat so fair!
Most special is my last born’s birthday.
Minute monitoring of decoration’s detail
And fussing over final dressing of cocktail. 
Majestic table stands with a centerpiece;
Tempting cake covered with...Read More

The Dusk has arrived
The 'dusk' has arrived 
The sun has willingly  bowed
Down the silver lined  Clouds
With departure framed waves
Encompassing luminous Rays,

Watching the 'dusk ' in control,allowing the dawn to  emerge,

Grandfather Clock
Swish thud goes the pendulum,
Giving every second significance,
With each moment as important.

Taking me into myself, for myself,
Able to access my abstraction,
Feeling my own presence positively.

The beats remind me of my heartbeat,
There, but not visible: just by intelligence;
Only these clocks emphasise...Read More

Premium Member Once Upon Time
Once within eternal time
of pre-bicameral lack of language,
and imaginative recreation,
I recall breathing in my Lover's richly hued nutrition,
and my Lover inhaling mine,
purging Elder lungs of misperceptions
that I owned Her
any more or less than she wanted me.

We owned this natural dialectic...Read More
