Premium Member Covid 19: The Movie
It would make a terrific movie script -
I can imagine the opening scene -
Forget about "Tales From The Mummy's Crypt,"
I give you - "The Curse Of Covid 19!"

Though possibly not within tradition,
The dreaded death-inducing condition
Would come first to those whose...Read More

Sight denied apply no reason
Mortified by opposition
Justify your hunting season
Babel you on me

Label quick no super vision
Satisfied with superstition
Argue angered flawed position
Babel you on me

Trigger horrid theist passion
Lashing out with one direction
Mutual assured destruction

Singing the Black Cat Blues
People stop and stare
when I pass them on the street,
some believe it is bad luck
as our paths cross each other
others turn away and do not bother.

Singing the black cat blues.

Superstition follows we wherever I go,
like a black cloud ready to...Read More

Solar Eclipse 2003

Two elderly ladies anxiously looked up at the night sky, 
their faces lit by the excitement of an eclipse. 

Half the moon was about to be eaten by darkness. 
The first cold night gave substance to our breaths.

Premium Member What is the number
You might shout it on a golf course,
It’s the number of digits in my pin,
In Chinese it’s death but let us not show remorse
Because it’s also the code to let angels in. 

America’s July signifies the way

For every light that shoots through the celestial ocean,
some living soul will act to its consequence in proportion.
The purpose in progress through the skies,
shades of termination kindling as it flies.

In the distance,

Friday the Thirteenth
By Franklin Price

Today's another Friday
The thirteenth is its date
Some say that its unlucky
Should take care at any rate

Don't walk under any ladders
Don't let black cats cross your way
If you find a penny, pick it up,
When traveling today

Over here in an Emotional plebiscite;
Knowing it's do or die
Sparked by emotional suicide 
These feelings linger like a pesticide,
While I'm trying to go overdrive.
Finally asking myself why!?

Why does this feel like emphatic repetition,
Being manipulated by my perceptive premonitions,...

Absent from the reservation
Another brave defines a nation
Waxing tired of superstition
Find his truth, a lifelong mission

Long a tearful trail adventure
Only strong will see the treasure
Shoes destroyed but feet still bearing
Longing for some honest sharing

Scherzos and nocturnes
Hackneyed breath of words and the clichés hit the wall, 
A stream of summoned nonsense bounces off of me like superstition,
Benevolent limits of indulgence, on the other hand, - oh, well!

Sprinkled...Read More

Mom, why he

Mom, whatever you said for my marriage
followed each word of yours without questions;
Believed them truly, thought it'd have bearing
in our life, will make a lasting impression.

Trust me, we just met a few days only
before ceremony, not giving chance

The White Daisy
Once I plucked a pure, white daisy,
And pulled its petals one by one.
“He loves me,” I spoke. “He loves me not.”
I pulled each petal, and they dropped to the ground.
I pulled them until the very last one was,
“He loves me...Read More

Rode around Essex with murder in mind
With evil followers from town to town
Matthew Hopkins was the worst of his kind
Hunting for witches that he could take down.

She'd then be tortured until she confessed

An Omniscient being

it being only one.

'Tis a benefit for mere

suspicion, or perhaps

A map of the universe

are given names to
silence the majority,
is but a ruse.

Ghost Hollow
The Laskey brothers owned a farm, a lovely little spot.
A babbling brook made merry mist when summer nights were hot.
And that’s when Jacob filled his pipe and sat upon a boulder.
The smoke arose, a haloed ring around his tired shoulders.

boys like oaks used to the plow.
Drink to us father!, because the gifts are getting cold

Spirits of the Night 1
It is the wispy shadow of the night
That delegates shivers down my spine
Superstition is their belief,
But to me it’s reality
Everytime I go out into the night,
We always have an encounter;
Spirits of the night.

It is the gentle night breeze,
That seems to...Read More
