Premium Member At The Seaside
A quiet 
but windy day 
at the seaside.

A family's out
lounging
in the morning sun;
one of the children
excitedly 
look for shells.

A surfer yonder
is riding the waves 
unceasingly splashing 
against the rocks
exploding 
like a tossed grenade;

taking it all in
at daybreak
in mute amazement,
a lifeguard...Read More

nothing special
Crimson kids
Rebellious cars
Parked outside bars, staring at stars

Burn the place with an icy glare
Make them all stop and stare
Lilac girls and painted skies
Never have time for surfer guys

Jump off a roof
Watch it on loop
Like and share
Truth or dare

Summer spell
Kiss and...Read More

I Am Not A Robot Part 2
Me a zombie?
Never!
Just a viral doofus poseur,
Brainiac and hacker on the loose tapping into other genie lamps,
Wireless Stikbot floater skipping ID challenge.
Hurdles that authenticate saliva from a silicone palate.
Trojan horse webber getting kicks from pop up photos and their tick...Read More

Waves

To the surfer
The wave requires
Her immediate attention..
To balance forces
Which may result in
Swimming not surfing..

Each morning we arise
To catch a wave..
Wishing that we might
Ride the crest today..
Some days it seems so
But others no..

Then the Recognition
Perhaps when crestfallen
We notice the enormity
Of the...Read More

Backdoor
I was surfing the Banzai Pipe
When the Backdoor opened like hype
A shark lurking there
Missed me by an hair
But my shorts sure needed a wipe! 

 Some say the Hawaiian island of O'ahu got its name
from the last words of a...Read More

Great Surfer Soon Became
Great Surfer Soon Became

Truly great surfer he soon became,
And was known for his wide acclaim;
Never did behave;
Became wave slave,
Along with all of his fortune and fame.

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.

The Surfer
Gasping he sucked in deep
To breathe after made his survival complete
The wave rolled on and left him there
Riding the waves made it devil may care

The sun warmed him lying on his board
Another tick off the bucket list was scored
As he...Read More

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

"Soul Surfer" 



I bought some sea shell beads 
today, 
stood by the ocean 
while the half sharp winter wind 
washed 
through 
me 
and 
whispered stinging sticatto 
cold licks next to my ear, so sincerely -

Premium Member I'm Just Getting Started
Born in Madrid, in fifty nine,
A military Kid, 3rd of 7 in the assembly line;
They named me Michael, but I answer to Wedge,
A Master Sergeant’s son—not much here that's cutting edge.

I grew up a runner, and I wrestled some,

AtTractions of the urban surfer,
ExHibits at the shored enclaves,

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,

Perfection Born
I wrote so many,
  in hope of one

A lyrical surfer,
  his wave to come

One verse to ride,
  the search complete

And all eternity
  within my reach

As the quiet ended
  in a thunderous roar

The wait was over,

The Social Network
Go into the Badlands.

Get your private screening.
See how the universe works.

Have a double dose of psych.
Bath in its sea of love,
Smell the enemy within.
The dark tower. 
The soul surfer.

In your warrior's way,
Embrace the den of thieves.

You'll feel pretty.

Ballerina
I don’t know where she is
The little ballerina
That swung like a spinning star
With innocent giggles
That woke the tempest doom
Lying prostrate on anxious laps
After an immaculate transposition
Of impeccable steps
Sweat slithering through the 
Afro lines of her kinky hair
Dripping melts of gold

The seductive voice
emanating from the Cyclops eye,

Cold in the Tropic

When the bronze-skinned, 
silver tongue surfer
came smoothly yacht cruising
at year’s end
All the island ladies,
at the cabana house welcoming party,
mosh pit fell in ... 
Fell in love 
with the cosmopolitan thought
of permanently leaving
Loose their dinghy life from the slow-pace wharf,
and deep...Read More
