Premium Member Spontaneous Stigmata Surfacing
Spontaneous sulfurous stigmata sinisterly surfacing
Membranous molecules meticulously masterfully marshaling
Tangible tempestuous tears tangling thoughts
Radical revelation revealing ruinous rots
Pious priests patronize punishable penance
Impious illusions intrigue impacting independence
Narcotizing nefarious noxious naves navigate
Prioritizing pains portal pandemic perpetrate
False fixation fumigates fragmental fatal fury
Defaults determine damaged...Read More

Commander of the Weird
As Commander of the weird
Member of the phurst church of phun
An ordained member I am father and I am mother
Of the rubber chicken

Juggled between one George Bush and the other
Between camps, I break my foot, 
They threw me up, North

Wasted Energy

Darkness descends like a ribbon unfurling,
As astronauts in space orbit the earth churning;
And observe the lit orb that is the world below,
Liken to a planet on fire in sulfurous yellow.
Impressive, but a waste of energy,
To see photons flow at...Read More

Susurrus songs of delightful dragonflies with flash dances
Through flowering fields with passionate prances
Glowing with sanguine opulence, we glimpse gallant glances
We capture them in conversation in composing literary lace lances 
Mother nature bestows to them picturesque chalices overflowing with cornucopia...Read More

Six Days to Kennevor, Part II
...On the fourth day I awoke to
a great grizzly snuffing about,
he had smelled the blood of my wounds,
what he wanted I had no doubt.
He gave a bellow and I shot,
my Winchester I did fire,
had to empty the magazine
before that damn...Read More

another day slides
obliquely into dusk
clouds yawning
in a graying pall

darkness peeks
from beneath
a sulfurous moon
eyeing its fleeing prey

clad in black, she shakes with fear
the still of multitudinous lights
very far - up close and personal

she could sense its intense heat
shaking like a Chinese dragon
this enormous red snake

with seven crowns
on seven heads
and ten horns

lights flicker in s.o.s.

Nostril damn mess
The putrid, malodorous and fowl nauseating smell 
   can still be conjured nearly fifty years later wracked
I never forget ineradicable tangy, sulfurous 
   acrid odor rankled olfaction tract
entire sinus cavity, yet amazingly enough isolate

Pasha Acremodios grew greedy,
discontented with the domain he dominated,
so he turned covetous eyes toward Farabia,
sending his soldiers to seize this ripened plum

Spoiling for a fight and fighting for spoils,
his army swept across Farabia
like a bloody broom,
brushing it clean of plunder,
bringing...Read More

Premium Member Mount Etna's Dragon
Burping sulfurous fumes
its fiery belly heaves
and gas and ash erupt
knocking me to my knees.

Beneath the pumice beats
a throbbing heart of heat
and I can feel its pulse
surging below my feet.

Treading on crackling skin
I weigh each step I take
or share Icarus’s fate
and...Read More

The devil I knew
My eyes watered
from the sulfurous stench of your disdain
as you turned those empty eyes my way

My skin crawled 
from the leathery touch of your insensitivity
as your talons absently clawed my flesh

My soul shivered 
from the the cold wind of your...Read More

Premium Member Fallen Star
I tracked along a silver trail
carved out from Earthly dust
by rays persistent in the dark 
and midnight wanderlust.

It led me to a bubbling fount
of sulfurous mud and tar; 
whereupon I chanced a glimpse
and found a fallen star. 

An ancient from...Read More

We break the past to build the future
the chimney stacks
of the old power station
claws at the belly of the clouds
and with its sulfurous billowing
it bellows its stench
tinting the clouds, yellowing nicotine stains
as its cadaverous fingers clench
and releases, as it pleases
the painted nails 
sport red flashing lights
as the...Read More

Spaceman vs Sea Monster
At the bottom, in her clutches, you’ve found your new home
Her ghostly embrace makes you feel more alone
Spaceman, at peace in the depth of your night
On glamour and glory, you’ve gotten too high
And somehow you slipped and crashed through the...Read More

Voldemort, by contrast, was vanquished easily
Changed climate is not a surprise
With drilling for gas on the rise
Where can life forms hide
From carbon dioxide
And methane let loose in the skies?

Neo-druids auger gas wells
And add fluids with sulfurous smells! 
Are poisons they've tapped
With their magic wands trapped

Ambiguous Desire
Mongrel, I smell you miles away
Returning through the dingy dark
From rummaging waste and decay
Till you putrid like them, can mark
A skunk's trail home. What germ you breed
Now to infect my pure desire,
O mangy bag of foul, dank weed,
You sodom of...Read More

What's inside us all....
What a sulfurous mess of molten evil
Troubles boil and surface
The singing of fine nerves within one’s self
This pushing of restricted buttons
Annoyance, Bitterness, Harm
Can one truly control it?
Stretching into the belly of the beast
Ripping, Tearing, Gouging
At its pivotal moment
A raging bull...Read More

Ashes Might Go Down Easier
Once in a while -in a moment 

of immense sulfurous clarity, when 

every grace I locked in my dilated pupils

begins to form lesions, yellow-running

tears through the deepest, lusty scarlet –

black and white would be a relief.

My mind billows like sheets,

silken,...Read More

A rose is a rose
By any other name.
A fart is a fart,
It smells the same.

A puff of air
From a dainty derriere,
A blast of gas
From a hairy ass.
The smell of beans
Passing through your jeans,
A deadly silent sleeper,
Bottle it! It's...Read More
