MRS US
This woman who's captured my heart without a camera

And given out the whole of herself 
Even during the...Read More

Elusive pursuit endeavoring to craft a great poem
I confess, no deliberate intent, yet often wonder

Superman was feeling mighty uptight
So he went out for a long midnight flight
   Spotted two teens making love

Lock and Key
I dream of a wonderland, just us
Laying with our hidden confessions
They're there, but locked up and held hostage
They're just waiting for the perfect moment to be free
To let go, to let loose
And make way for you, superman, to make your...Read More

Remember when you first kissed me -- in Spain

Their rock
Their rock

I’m supposed to be their rock
To always protect them, everyday
To be the father type of rock
To make sure they’re ok

I fell in love with each one of them 
I told them to never...Read More

The definitive nice guy and so friendly;
Slow to burn, he coasts life easily.
A true gentleman of the first order;
And free as bluebirds on the Spanish border!

He's my brother; I have no other;
First sunbeam of my mother.
A natural born comedian to...Read More

When Pigs Fly
Starting from scratch, can we imply
Was there a time when pigs could fly?
There's Mary Poppins, Peter Pan
the Flying Nun and Superman.

Starting off in different ways,
all of these flew without delays.
But tales of Wilbur and Arnold,
Porky or Piglet, none were told

I met a check-out chick the other day,
I asked how was her New Year's, okay,
She said she had a dreadful New Year's Day,
Her boyfriend battling bushfires with the CFA,
He had never been so far away,
What on earth could I say?

Mother bartered me to an Englishman.
His tribe made televisions.
In those days
televisions were wooden vehicles
crafted out of electric fans
and the spare parts of flying saucers.
Later he became an overseer
of sparky factory hands.
Once while waiting outside for his shift to end,
I jumped...Read More

Parachutist
Once upon a time but not right now or ever
A parachutist climbed the short oak tree
On private property not yours or mine
The sign read, “Trespassers will be shot
on sight”  (sight unseen)

A door made from the haphazard weaving
of wood, rust, and ivy.
Smudged newspapers flap wings
in a heaving wind. Drowned birds
emerge from wet print. Barren condoms
spill to feed the mouths of empty cans.
The garden has no house.
Rubble and verge limn a floor-plan.

I wish I could fly
I wish that I could fly.
I would do back flips in the sky.
I'd be superman Lois' hero.
Dashing through restaurants grabbing a churro.
One bad thing though, I might get struck by lightning.
That would be very frightning....Read More

Do not waste more time!

It is fire and spit,
thin water and urine. 
All lies from city folk. 
The swamp smells, 
it is dying. 
No new water, 
just the old cesspool inlets, 
all the outlets, blocked. 

Cockroaches running,

I'm playing seafaring games on the marble table,
sketching between the blue striations of the stone, 
a slab that resembles an ocean to my young mind.
I draw armadas and stick figure Spaniards,
foes that fall into shark-infested waters. Cannons roar silently.

The Brown Phoenix
Doubly twisted
Hating thine existence
tremors of a neurotic hand
Violent and bitter
Consumed by Ashen sands

Like the phoenix 
I’m reborn
Rebranded
Undoubtedly divine
My wings transform to arms
My beak into lips

I walk amongst the giants of the land 
Hands stretch outwards towards yours
Like a Superman in...Read More
