Premium Member SUNSET-
Fluttery eyes
Shallow deep breathe
Darkness bedding
Midnight nighttime
Passions end marveled lonely quench
Thought of sunset
Flung temporary
Evening never skying
Sun is falling out of view
Stepped a night-vision skyline

Where’s the sun going
Don’t GO
Sleepy tho!
And the dark never investigating
Fluttery eyes
Shallow deep breathe
Darkness bedding
Midnight nighttime
An d the dark...Read More

Another Poem On Dress Code Because The School System Didn't Listen The First time
I am better at summing up dress code
Than at summarizing 
The book that I missed three chapters of
Because my skirt was too short

Heck, I never even learned
How to summarize books
Because that was the day
The week
The entire unit 
That I missed...Read More

Chamber Maid For Cremation
Intrigued about cremation,
I sought GOOGLE to assuage curiosity
significant questions answered
clicking the following website

though summarizing article
some oven death defying act,
yet summarization satisfactorily completed,
thus herewith briefly describes
kickstarting, mystifying, pulverizing...
tantalizing, yielding, enterprising, lasting,

yelping, holding, surviving dearly departed

2. official cremation authorized

The issue between
The puzzle is puzzling me
the eyes tell hidden stories
this is a real life so puzzling

first look confuses gender
second sight reveals a puzzle
but she is not partly human

body is whole baked cake
lips  ice-cream container
milk calabashes sitting there

somewhere lies hot chocolate
forbidden...Read More

Premium Member The Leadership Convention
When potable water nearly disappeared,
good faith communities
for healthy living 

Fire-breathing resistance churches
and calmer rapture temples,
green post-millennial sanctuaries,
Gaian ecofeminist fire-circles
gathered their members and neighboring allies,
republican nationalists,
green democrats,
ecosystemic libertarian zeroists,

To discuss and discern
which potential Presidential
and Vice-Presidential candidates to nominate
for next year's Master...Read More

Premium Member Earth's Eulogy
Mothers have come
from throughout Earth
to bury our post-Trumpian dead.
Bringing both gifts and lamentations
as each finds appropriate
for healing
what cannot be stanched
and scabbed.

As gathering 
we choose who will speak among us,
for this Earth eulogy.

At last our voices conjoin as bilateral one,
speaking back...Read More

Premium Member God as Archivist
It is at least interesting to turn life's political economy backward
through reverse-time focus.

Life's memories of an uphill journey,
perhaps even a sacred pilgrimage,
toward an ultimate death of ego identity,
giving way voluntarily, or not,
to Earth's regenerative potential, or not.

Let's call this ecoconsciousness...Read More

The City Opens Its Arms
As we walk outside the 
  city opens its' arms to us 
A friendly crossing guard 
     signals to cross the
intersection safely 
    At the bus stop a woman 
holds her son's...Read More

I came out under the blue light
my foundation was flooded
armour broken
but soul refused to give up

I'm wearing this soul like beggar his worn out shoes
Would you love me?

they took my hands
they took my legs
my face is stolen

I won't do anything like other kids do
Why would you...Read More

So It Was
So it was that the night transcended peacefully over my head
Taking me through thick clouds,landing me upon parched land
Spilling  tranquil moments into daylight complexity.
So it was that I found myself among a crowd of unfamiliar people
People who I have...Read More

Begin at the beginning is a good place to start
It makes this poem less tart 
sliding from oozed cocoon box
the lions have dens, the holes for fox 
screaming is the first noise issued 
followed by the orchestra, snap of tissued...Read More

A 17 year old writer.......!
The pseudo alacrity that he is callow,
Lacking emotions, maturity shallow,
Ignorance ammassed, adulthood fallow,
When summarizing vices, all but hallow!

Writing about the footprints of Marriage,
The opposite sexes' ultimate courage,
Bestowed hatred, ransacked heritage,
Frankness kicked for a conventional adage!

Writing boldly about the bold profession,
Of...Read More
