holiday in the sun
the chartered
bus stops in
an aire of

while clamoring
out of the bowels
of the snake hissing

door's mouth
spitting out
pork and

you wouldn't think
we're in Greece
tropical colors
of Hawaiian

offset by white
socks pulled
to the 

the smell
of sunblock
cooking on flesh
frying pans of fat
men and fatter women

Summer Cooking --- Well Done
Summer cooking on the beach,
Slap the sunblock where I can’t reach,
Baking in this broiling sun,
Ever since the day begun.

I’m roasting alive can’t you tell?
Touch my skin and I’ll scream like hell!
This is more than an alarming tan,
Someone said I’m a...Read More

If you don't like where you are..take a trip in your mind
Look in your brain's dark corners and see what you find
There are places a groaning board tempts with an epicurean delight
But the populace heads for the worst comestibles in...Read More

At First Sight
There she is, makeup layered on, like the sunblock you wear each and every day. Dress resolutely winking your way, pulling you closer, for she's the flower and your the bee, attracted to her imbuing dimple, her entrancing beauty. You...Read More

Found Poem
With the sun in my eyes, I grab my sunglasses and go

I go off in the world. Wondering where life will take me next.

Not knowing drives me insane. However, I take the pain. 

I spot a destination, and decide to...Read More

At the Beach
On a day at the beach
You have sun, you have sand
And a backdrop of ocean
To lap at the land.

If you’re there with some friends
And umbrellas for shade,
All your worries dissolve 
(If some sunblock you’ve sprayed).

You relax and unwind
While enjoying the...Read More

Down By The Sea
The heavenly blue of the morning sky is born
adorned with fluffy white clouds that entertains
my mind with pictures that out of the clouds
are torn.

Cool sand upon my feet, where I buried them
from the sun's heat. I take in the smell...Read More

the birds in the trees
and the ball hitting the glove
seems all the noise in the world
hunched like a scythe
in a hot concessions shack
the player's faces seem blurred
a sweltering day
seems more so as the hours pass,
making bags of candy floss
it gets...Read More

Behind the Clouds
The sun is playing hide and seek
Behind some fluffy clouds
Which makes it slightly overcast
And keeps away the crowds.

The temperature's a little cool,
Quite pleasant on the beach.
I slather on some sunblock
Just in case the rays can reach.

I'm sure that soon the...Read More

In my sixteens I used to go to Rockaway Park
on the A train made famous by Armstrong's song,
it had rides, small restaurants and a clean beach...
there I got golden brown with lots of cappertone.
I looked more handsome in a tan...Read More

Some folks’ say all my life I’ve been a BLOCKHEAD.
Maybe if I could have gotten through that last ROADBLOCK,
news of my incarceration wouldn’t be such a family BLOCKBUSTER.
So here I sit all alone in my CELL BLOCK.
I’m suffering a bad...Read More

Sunbathing martyrs
Bask in the inclination
Of August sunlight---
Alms of sunrays penetrate
Extinguishing the sunblock.

I asked my kind, obliging doc
To scan my brain for writer's block.
His words I recall,
"There's nothing at all.
Your head is made of solid rock."


My ever loving mama, harshly said.
"You look more than a little over-fed.
Stop eating for a minute
And just...Read More

Marching Years
There’s a chemical factory upon my face
I have lines and spots I need to erase
I mix elixirs and daily apply
The aging process I cannot deny

I have marks and wrinkles and sagging skin
The lines increase and I can’t seem to win
Freckles...Read More
