With will unwavering 
Riding a robust horse
Pakshiraj or Pegasus 
The winning force 
Empowers one to reach the distant shore
Sky height unforeseen before 
But lagging in tenacity it’s often abandoned
Fading dream-flower crumbles or 
Die in the bud.

Cat Nap

Fractious feline
sensuously stretching, 
languorously lying,
soporifically slumbering
(monocularly monitoring).

Meandering mouse! 
Tail twitching...
tautly tensing...
Predatory pounce!
Salubriously surfeit! 

These words have been trapped in my head with no opportunity to release them in normal conversation. Thanks for the opportunity to set them free!

Russian Olive Berries

The red berries are few this year.
How different from last year’s surplus
when every branch threatened to snap.

This year there are hardly enough 
for left-behind robins and still less 
for hardier winter birds. Was last 
year’s abundance a demonstration
of nature’s excess...Read More

A Surfeit of Light
There was always a surfeit of light in your presence.
You stood distinctly apart, not of the humdrum world—
a chariot of gold in a procession of plywood.

We were all pioneers of the modern expedient race,
raising the ante: Home Depot to Lowe’s.

Premium Member shattered mirrors, shattered past
i think of you often...
this cheval glass
titled like downcast eyes
retracts memories
of reflective past
    i see you there

this tiny frame
surfeit on pain
can't see me
beyond you

gaunt on love
starved of touch
i reach for you
the shards
of shattered glass
where you fall

Black Cloaked Man

In one ghost whisper of a town,
the mourning sunset had bloodshot eyes
A tombstone place that was
	long shadow 
past it’s boomtown prime
Withering eureka hope       fills the short cups
of the abandoned mine folk

Lip Bent Overly Yours

Most dastardly
Executive Majesty,
we serve at your pique pleasure
obsequiously so 

Yea, Darth Lord,
we be the surreptitious, servile ones:
Leper skin publicans, publicly hiss reviled

Tonsil rear ends torqued low 
is our mealy-mouth status quo

We’re liquored up lap dogs

Always lip bent overly yours

Tongue rolls...Read More

The grandeur of my life are elusive
Mine ain't melioration; it's oppression
My free life is cramped by chains of servitude
And shout out loud I mustn't 
Because even the power of my tongue is tied
Blank in me is the power to be...Read More

Perpetual love
If you want your love to last forever
turn around midway and walk away
to go back in time and frequently savor;
Let the flame of love in you eternally burn
and let the longing perpetually churn,
Wherefore to pine and surfeit day by day

Premium Member Three Limericks
There was a young man from Milwaukee
Who forever was playing at haukee.
His deplorable luck
Was to swallow a puck,
Now he drinks all his drinks through a straukee.

There was an old char who’d get teary
When confronted with weather too dreary—
It would grow...Read More

Brainstorm cometh, damning frontal hemisphere
jamming lookout, noggin perched, roiling thinking
uber wayfaring zealot, drills legendary phalanx.

This was the year for an abundance of plums,
the fruitlets spared by the absence of frost.
  The tree was leaning, the branches drooping
  with a curtain of fruit downward plunging.

Again her wail will lament in the hellish night, her body will...Read More

Premium Member When Love Disappoints
When love disappoints, does it mean that you're failure?
I've found more than once I just needed retraining!
Your heart feels a chill? Must their love be a surfeit
Does failure seem real though true friendship survives it?
Is sunlight a failure whose warmth...Read More

Premium Member Liturgy
There is so much to taste:
a religious surfeit 
gives me indigestion.

Jostled by a crowd of words 
I seek just who I am 
in relation to the Word.

Give me space, some quiet, 
room to breathe the Holy.

The Word made flesh is...Read More

kaleidoscopic whorled wide web
against light source well crafted 
tubular structure appended with 
eyepiece gazing offers viewer eye-

birthing then vanishing resplendent 

myriad colorful geometric awesome 
shifting shapes hypnotizing sight 
seer whirling gigolo where multi

Laying before me, I have twenty two
lined up syringes consisting of you
Each vial holds a different piece of your soul
I'm missing a fragment so can't make you whole
The morsel that's missing, already injected
soothing withdrawls, my body infected
I promised I know,...Read More

An Impermissible And Impossible Thing
Were it not a thing impermissible, 
I'd take handfuls of all these silly bits of 
Simulacra, and detritus, dross and debris:
The minutiae and impedimenta that are all these 
Constricting, confining rules and bylaws, codes and regulations:
And toss them aerially, and...Read More

Quelled knelled chime dulled and muffled
No longer heard nor noticed

A god's dream is existence
In the hearts of these amnesic men 
Most are insomniacs.
whose survival
would always be undermined.
Then we colonize
Make them walk on their feet.
Blinded by their ego,
we neo-colonize
And I think, they still need to be recolonized

Here, there is a surfeit of spam,
Fed to us by government man,
Democracy's harrowing tale,
Setting us up to fail,
Pollies' synchronised team,
Is all this what it seems?
Total cant and hypocrisy,
A merit myth of futility,
Spam surfeit, no caring beyond duty.........Read More
