Premium Member The Donkeys

The Blackpool donkeys have given up
they have boarded jumbo jets
to be emotional support animals
for those lesser angels
that protect us wingless fliers. 

They have opted out.
Once they used to plod from Blackpool pier
half a mile up, half a mile back,
day after...Read More

What I Love about the Lord
What I Love About the Lord

What I will always love about the Lord,
Is when he gave me a great surfboard;
Quickly sped;
Had hit my head;
Riding waves with it do look forward.

Jim Horn

For Surfer Son Shawn Horn.

Flackmoth on Nudes
Flackmoth is not one to provoke feuds
with anyone who has a thing for nudes,
and though he’s far from prudish
he’d like to see a few less nudish.
(He’s of the view that the imagination
titillates far better by suggestion.)

First on his list is...Read More

Each graceful bird embrace air, charmingly,
A morning dew slides to expecting leaves,
One lovely dove sings above, pleasantries,

Per bustling wind brush of things, breathlessly,
Curling waves a surfer craves, surfboard heaves,
Each graceful bird embrace air, charmingly,

Frogs leaps as sheep's bleats unanimously,
Boy hits...Read More

Let me tell you about my eldest brother.

I am: the "Scram!", the "Beat it!", the "What you looking at?!", and the "Turn around and watch the movie!", younger brother. As you can see, he has, a lot of phrases he...Read More

February 14th.
Fifty three degrees.
What? Get out your bikini.
Kick off those shoes.
It is time to break out the Koolaid.
Plunk in the ice cubes. 
Use Grandma's aluminum glasses
The ones from the 50's that keep things cold.
Where is my surfboard?
My swimsuit coverup?
My suntan...Read More

My heart felt old; I sought the cold.
Canada’s land was what I planned.
Among trees grand and far inland
To dance my sad brand of sarabande.
Yet precious moments come when joy flowers,
Far briefer than Four-O’clocks,
As resurrected visions composed of spectral smoke,
Reignite our...Read More

Surf Sound Around Made Heart Pound
Surf Sound Around Made Heart Pound

There is something about surf sound,
I do love to hear when it is around;
On surfboard ride,
And then has dried;
Breaking on shore makes heart pound.

Replacing wishes with fantasy dreams
you ride life’s wake, on a surfboard of hopes.
Subjected to laughter, and silent screams
you’re entangled in invisible ropes
and lose your footing on slippery slopes.

Exploring secret urges within you
fledgling feelings seem to last forever.
Fabricating colors of every...Read More

Mulberry stains. 
Cement twist. 
Clenched fist.
Broken teeth.
Big belly.
Near miss.
Stand still. 
Slap brick. 
All in bits. 
Ram her.
Hole drilled. 
Little White Pill. 
walk plank, 
shark fin, 
ocean mist
Muster Buster.
Bust Her.

Santa's on the Surfboard
Santa’s on his surfboard
     It’s Christmas time again
He’s comin’ round the jetty
     And just now cleared the bend

Santa’s loves his surfboard

Pains of the Trade
The ink on my hands is the poet in me.
And she’s bleeding. 
She wants her hands on the page again
And is tearing me apart
To put me back together
Word by word on
Letter by letter on

It’s an abusive relationship
She’s feeding off my...Read More

Traveling light
I'm traveling light, upon my cosmic surfboard
Unravelling time, across the Nordic fjords
I looked up one night, my beach went very far
I booked a flight, to each and every star
I left the world, and it all unfurled
The black holes swirled, while...Read More

Then Thanked My Lord
Then Thanked My Lord

I will find myself always looking forward,
Riding waves while on my surfboard;
Remember when;
Again and again;
For great performance thanked my Lord.

Dolphins at play
The world looks so lovely 
out here today

and there's dolphins at play 
they're racing the waves 
at the bow of the ship 
like teenage surfers 
on a surfboard trip 
they seem so happy

Christmas In South Florida
It's a mid December morning, 
and it's 85 degrees.
There are no cool breezes blowing,
just some high humidity. 
Yes, I'd like to build a snowman, 
but it's hot out as can be.
Down here in South Florida,
there will be no snow for...Read More

Ocean of Avoidance
The swell that permeates my days -
Even when attempting to 
Stand up on the surfboard
Concentrating, with purpose to forget -
Is you. 

You're always in front of my face
And behind my back
And everywhere in between
Not telling me what I need to...Read More

Sermon did seem like a Sunday devotion
About a deep and wide offensive ocean
That washed many a happy surfer ashore
Making them want to do it more and more.

Created tall, big waves for a random ride
Until there was a changing...Read More
