Bad news anchors
Tragedy gains currency;

A Few Words About Vanity
surgical, age, humor,
Form: Light Verse
Ageing, sooner or later betrays us
and vanity, supposedly, saves us.
Men, less so, but women especially,

with measures used no better than
the least skilled mortician,
and the end results are about
as good as any corpse laid out.
It’s all but...Read More

I’m in the blood, running through your veins,
Taken for granted, but there just the same,

Without me the world, would fall to pieces
Universe itself, could provide...Read More
Real heroes...sacrifice their lives...
Giving protection and peace in our hives..
Secular country,lost wealth of 42 warriors...
Leaving their families with heavy heart,
Almighty showers blessing in heaven.
Devastation of silent Pulwama with violence,
Changed Valentine day to black day...
Brought lump in our throat no way..
surgical, america, boy, education, gender, girl, men, woman,
For three hundred thousand, of five billion years,
A fact never challenged by science or fears;
Upright Homo-Sapiens, embodied two genders,
Each body clearly favoring, the other body’s splendor.
But alas as we humans, have improved and evolved,
We decided old constructs, should now be...Read More

In Memory Of Jacque Fresco

Northern sunshine spotlit arm
Shoulder covered, summer fabric
Vogue presented picture
Paper thin skin: soft, precious
Veins, arteries proudly displayed
Rivers that fill oceans
Hands enduringly closed
Phalanges bent awry
Nimble surgical instrument
Your chocolate teeth will be rotting you little cheeky devil
But I’ll take this mischievous ‘treat’ to a much higher level
Spike the candy bars with castor oil and laxative suspension
You’ll wish the loo was closer and for a surgical bowel extension

Cold hands of the doctor in gloves and mask
lay her on the hard surgical metal table.
A numb sensation travels down arm to wrist.
Sedation spreads to an EGREGIOUS sin.
Breathing deep through monitored heart rate
eyelids weigh down in heavy haze.
Frills of...Read More
FOR MY SISTER, ROSE

I turn back pages of memories,
I see the faces of mom and thee,

Verbatim in detail, all the same,
'Twas not planned, 'tis mom who laid...Read More

Three Sonnets Inspired By My Reigning Ex
Warmly dedicated to SMJ
Three Sonnets Inspired by my
breath of life
when the flow is low
and you have no go
with only a pint of air
and no energy to spare
that’s no county fair
filling up with daily meds
daily weight wearing Teds
puffing uphill doesn’t fit the bill
surgical scars from going thru the mill
getting frequent...Read More

i had nine million thoughts of you
8,999,999,000 of them were daggers to my heart

Cancer Was the Match,
That Set My Fields on Fire

Whether aptly marked or vegetated trail;
Found most days all too frequently skewed,
So I sought God’s face to help me prevail.

My smile floats off...Read More
He Hated Her
surgical, anger, angst, body, depression, gender,
Form: Dramatic Verse
When he was born,
the doctor said
the baby was a girl
And as he grew up,

Then when he reached adolescent age,
the hormonal rage of estrogen
really started kicking in
He got so much testosterone frustration,
A Nihilistic Pen
surgical, analogy, destiny, humanity, life, philosophy,
Form: I do not know?
A crude tool,
scraped out of the corpses of the animate.
Smooth frame, end weighted yet a hollow core.
With surgical precision
rugged strokes of intent forms beings abound.
Drowned by the tidal wave of compulsion
and espoused with approximation.
It’s function will be debased,
with the...Read More
