Premium Member Heartbeat Of A Star
Oh, living, breathing star
     how beautiful you are.
You pulsate from afar- 
     our cosmic avatar.

Life beats inside your heart

so elements- impart

Premium Member Eyebrows on Noses
Eyebrows on noses and whiskers on women
Large rats and wombats that suckle my kitten
Penguins that waddle in hot sulfur springs
These are a few of my befuddled things

Parrots that prattle for...Read More

She Walks the Valley
She walks the valley holding a black rose
as she searches for her lost love,
they were together for a long time,
frolicking throughout the night in their prime.

Villagers see her shadow against the full moon,
the air reeks of sulfur as she passes...Read More

At the base of Suribachi
Within reach of the beach
The mountain towers as I shrink
In guts of hate—malignant;
With gun, bayonet and grenade
And murdering hands
To choke the existence
Out of living things.

They all looked the same 
Refusing to quit
Hating more than me
If that’s...Read More

Premium Member - Goodbye Dad -

Silence ...
  deep ...
overwhelming silence
Your arduous journey ...
- with fire and sulfur

A hand to hold
Words for comfort
A cold cloth on your forehead
Moisten your mouth
- wipe your tears

I will follow you to the gate
- but you must go in alone

the land of spirit being open to improvisation
with existence a fountain of plenty for all

At night, a huge creature floats to the surface of the tart ocean to dream into the moonlight, which barely penetrates the sulfur clouds. She sighs, her skin made of stainless steel is luminescent in the dark, her nuclear heart...Read More

Premium Member Empires and Rivers
Empires and rivers, time and space, man and nature.
Yet nothing, nothing satisfies like clear sinuses and arteries.
The struggle to express and understand is seemingly futile.
Pope’s Iliad, Milton’s Paradise, Armand Schwerner’s Dante.

Chemotherapy, quatrains, everything rhymes with comedy.
Good luck saying anything useful....Read More

the sun exposed
above mountain's edge
through the folds
of dawn's rise
carmine sky erupts
mimicking fire
that burns beneath

in the crisp morning 
the earth gasps in breaths
of pallid air
as it rises from the cracks
of asphalt and dirt
the smell of sulfur lingers

the narrow streets are unkept

Jesus you are

Dandelion moves on
A blithesome royalty, sea of roses smile
      delicate faces spark in emerald pasture.
Vivid sunny weeds, dandelions fragile...
       no one cares, stems of careless rapture.

 Petals felled in wanton lawn...Read More

Keep Looking Ahead Always, Not Back -Genesis 19: 23-26

sure desolation, final friend of pride
brought forth by hoary pretensions of depth,
in which reside delusions soaked in bile
excreted from the end of every breath

possessed with zephyr of your utterance,
as all else is subjected...Read More

hanging gardens
available on all major streaming services and general digital stores
from the album, babylon, through my solo project, sempiternal sepulchrality
beneath the ancient city
a garden of souls lies
swirling, writhing
plagued with sulfur and flame

hopeless cries
met with muddled echoes
no recollection of
what was before

Choice of Hell

Man of fire and lightning 
What he touches, burns, sulfur
Righteous hard words twisted from his mouth
He smelts chains of steel to shackle and bind my soul
It is his desire to own me, master of my world

Smells Like Government

Rancid lemon rope squeeze
around a rotten tomato neck tie,
crooked odor bow hanging out of place 
Acid reflux raisin tax bleed;
dripping spoiled, milquetoast lies
out a sour-twisted, prune puckered face

Tart tongue 
sulfur speak disorderly,
dirty saliva fingers in the propaganda pie
Such a bowel...Read More

And the arrow of time of entropy erupted.

Out of nothing, something

Sitting on that rock 
Like a suburban mermaid, 
You look like a lost girl 
With a long sad story to tell.
