God's Confession
God's Confession

I was sitting along
In a god forsaken bar
Somewhere on the lunatic fringes
Of society

Enjoying my lonely drink
Drinking by my lonesome self
With my partners
Jimmy Dean, and the Walker brother
And his old Granddad
Just drinking and hanging
With the Jack Daniel's gang

A crazed bum

An elderly concubine looks
at the black silky lace* 
in the crimson casket
with a smile of understanding.
The royal gift of grace
from the new young sultan.

Babe Ruth the swimmer
I dreamt of Babe Ruth
in Howard Johnsons' 
lighted pool doing

the backstroke so brilliantly.
No bats lying around
anywhere. warm water

reflected dorsal pecs, 
beautiful biceps, round
spiral muscles fanning

along so softly.
Finally finding the nerve
to say: Babe! your a

ballplayer; Sultan of swat.
Smiling at me timidly:

Great teachers changed the world for me,
I sometimes dreamed of teaching too!
"Yet, 'gift' to teach!" stays blasphemy
While 'taught' to teach still make kids blue!
The Peace Corps pushed some faults aside,
Grace opened doors to serve with pride,
New languages, to serve...Read More

The Sahara's flaring moon

spins dust into tawny gold for a sultan sun,
eroding an oasis to sate his rapture
with effete wealth tatted in the shadows

You were an Afghan, Farid Khan by name,
A name less known to the world today.
You ran away from home,
Because your own step-mother plotted against you.
Now you were runaway-Khan!

You chose to be a knight-errant,
Soon became a military commander in Bihar,
Was renamed...Read More

Once there was a famous king,
More famous than Ozymandias.
His name was King Wolf. 
Sultan was his nickname.
He called himself a benevolent despot;
And his style of government 
A ‘democratic dictatorship.’

He spoke good English— 
A foreign language, though; 
Only a minor problem...Read More
