Are the walls smokin
I'm a clothes addict, my flow's magic
8 miles underground to choke rabbits
Nose habit that grows when I overdose 
But speak truth so it shrinks like Pinochio
Take lines a pony won't, stay unstable
Experiment, opperate and lay on tables ..

silence! (give me breath!) Revised

these days silence just hangs there, sole fruit of my mind
though my branches drop tendrils, dream thoughts, some new word,
a Saint’s prayer touched might help some truth see daylight,
life sustained in some way (hope’s vain sharing...Read More

Bertolt Brecht Holocaust Poem: The Mask of Evil
Die Maske des Bösen (“The Mask of Evil”)
by Bertolt Brecht
loose translation/interpretation by Michael R. Burch

A Japanese woodcarving hangs on my wall—
the mask of an ancient demon, limned with golden lacquer.
Not unsympathetically, I observe
the forehead’s bulging veins,
the tremendous strain
such malevolence requires.

Premium Member Glass Half Full Glass Half Empty
Take a glass and fill it half full of water.
We have often heard by some the glass is half full,
by others the glass is half empty.
Now which is it half full or half empty?
It is both,
it is how you look...Read More

Premium Member Nature Knows Best
A flower shoots up through the gravel in the back yard

Enthused by persuasion of spreading seeds for dear life

Red petals applaud a scented splash of dissident colour

Among yellow clover converging in strides of plentitude

	The poppy marches on nevertheless

A Piece of Pi
Have a piece of pie today – 
Try apple, plum or cherry
Or key lime, lemon, Boston cream
Or one I love – mixed berry.

The choices aren’t infinite
Like digits never ending
In Pi, which though explained to me
I’m just not comprehending.

The 'With You' is Silent
The "With You" is Silent

My sunny-bright morn, has turned a bit dark 

I learnt this morn, that a dear friend has left

Premium Member Legend of Ogopogo
Chilled by cold Canadian air
Lake Okanagan’s waters run deep
And so does its Ogopogo
A legend the centuries keep

Native Americans feared it
Animal sacrifices were made
Before they boarded their canoes
And set out to traverse the lake

Campfire stories natives told
Of the monster “Snake in...Read More

The greatest joy in life is sharing a Golden
An unbreakable friendship that is deep as the ocean
An exaggeration you suggest
Maybe you'd fail the test
A Golden is the epitome of a doggie beholden

The Strange Truces of King Arthur
The Strange Truces of King Arthur
by Michael R. Burch

Artur took Cabal, his hound,
and Carwennan, his knife,
and his sword forged by Wayland
and Merlyn, his falcon,
and, saying goodbye to his sons and his wife,
he strode to the Table Rounde.

“Here is my spear,...Read More

An Old Photograph

I rummage through a box
of old photographs. A lady’s image
holds my eye: I hold her up to 
light filtering of a window.

The edges are frayed, a scratch
cuts across her face, a scar
now permanent yet transient,
does not disturb the hardness

of her...Read More

Premium Member Reading Yeats
"Tread softly because you tread on my dreams,"*:
It is an extremely famous quotation,
Of sufficiently proven duration,
Deservedly so, but to me it seems
To have become too commonplace,
Hackneyed beyond its intrinsic grace.
As a would-be poet who esteems
Most highly the work of Yeats,
Whose...Read More

Eighteen Wheeler
Used carcase dealer

Pyramid chain customers

Pharaoh chariot lust

want a cartel vehicle
