Kidney Transplants

Here’s a bit of humor so bizarre,
you’ll wonder if you heard it at a bar.
A dog bequeathed his kidneys to
his master, himself in need of two.
The operation, critical and delicate, 
proved a success and surgically correct.
The only downside, and unpredictable,
has...Read More

Daytime has downgraded joys into sorrow and fearful shadows lead the way

The stars above have abandoned me and heaven has closed down for repairs

Once there had been a comet a rising star lighting up my Universe of passion

Yesterday’s memories have...Read More

Asian Epicurean Quest

At the heart of China Town, Kuala Lumpur (capital of Malaysia) is Petaling Street.
Domain of hustlers, hucksters, cheap-jacks and diblers; purveyors of street food, rude t-shirts, and rubber sandles to put your feet on;

Unnatural Selection

“Boys will be girls,
and girls will be boys”

Utter false parenting
The power of impotent suggestion
by the ignorant immature

God made the male and the female;
and at birth,
it’s womb evident navel plain to tell

Gomorrah girls will be Bela boys

Changed genitalia minds
are gonna walk

Scars are the Path to the Soul 

Here is a road of tears,
miles and miles of memories
appearing on a sunny shadow,
moving through your being with a 
slow pain as scars are the 
path to the soul

The roadmap of an old...Read More

Deer rest Glasgow
Another dreary journey down deaths highway
The daily life of cursed work
Outside Glasgows fair kiss
The free tv shows views as cars driven by the undead squeeze past
The grubby bus window that no one seems to use
All heads in prayer to the...Read More

I stand by my heart
Never alone again 
Shadows stop where the sun starts
Some chapters are worth reading again 
I’ve reflected and tried to apologize 
Yet those offended insist to hold a grudge
Over the moon with the need to ostracize 
Rubbing...Read More

Portrait of a Hanging

With the opening of my fortress cell,
solemn-faced men come locust invading in
Their mouths smile not, and eyes neither grin
as ceremonial words pursed lips expel
A deer thought escapes ... my life nears its end!
And I feel the cold October Halloween Day...Read More

Holistic Mind Wipe

It’s the purest form of mind wipe known thus far,
erases all mental defective stigmas
Especially that stubborn frontier viral strain
Individualism is a fretting disease ...
thinking you can do without the government,
	citizen, please!
You have be real sick to think like this,
but fortunately,...Read More

Feelings Left Unsaid

He looks at her
with mutilated disgust
The gentle touch on his shoulder,
from the woman she now is,
changes the look on his face
Through no fault of her own,
cancer has taken a twin part of her away
He heaves his chest in twisted exhalations,
somehow...Read More

When cancer cells come calling options are few and far between
One can blast them with radiation which is like fighting a fire with gasoline
One can surgically remove them, hoping no stragglers are left behind
In either case the risks are many,...Read More

Premium Member Health Optimizing Investments
If we were to follow a health model
for optimizing both economic and ecological wealth outcomes,
then investment in public and domestic educational systems
for active ecotherapeutic practice
and developing cooperative, self-regenerative systems,
would become our primary fiscal investment,

While military-surgical remediation
of past overly-competitive pathologies
would become...Read More

The Mirror Lied
You were seduced by silicate reflections,
unflattering images
of your perceived epidermal imperfections 
The bedroom mirror showed you
your deepest fear
It's crystalline voice told you
what you wanted to hear
Enhance your beauty
Change your outer self
But the silicate mirror lied,
it didn't tell you the whole...Read More

Vacant Eyes
You've seen that look before,
so many times that you lost count
It's the look of hopelessness,
the look of despair
Vacant eyes that no longer care
Who let the emptiness in,
who stole their zest for life
Who squeezed the vitality out,
who removed their heart with...Read More

Is there a doctor in the house?
A cryptic message from the uniting nations,
looking for yet another credentialed ecotherapist
to surgically remove all our economic and political issues.

Those remaining after overdosing on pharmaceuticals
as media marketed 
through normal incorporated competitions
for egocentric profit
channels and...Read More

CE - Capture/Exterminate
Not only is this inhumane, it doesn't work at any rate.
A "vacuum effect" is all that will create,
vacuuming outside ferals into a territory already great
for food, shelter and to repopulate.
Within a few months the very same problem you'll...Read More

Today I have been comparing and contrasting Bernie Sander's and Donald Trump's political and economic motives
for seeking their respective Party nominations.

Senator Sanders and Chief Corporate Executive Officer Trump
began with intent to become The Nominee,
we might presume.
But is that it?
What would...Read More

I can't afford to flinch

Psychoanalysis: A Touch of Insight
I relaxed on the couch to feel at ease, 
the psychiatrist sat across from me.
This wasn’t any normal physician- 
He was my subconscious personified.

A flow of panic surged through my body-
Beads of sweat slowly trailed down my face-
My heart began...Read More

I get this job every year
I have never been to medical school and I am just a lowly nurse

Another mind
It happened again
I couldn’t help myself
The emotion was intoxicating
As they screamed for help
They begged for mercy
And asked for a quick death
But that robs me of the pleasure
Of sustaining their last breath

I strip them of hope
And offer a brief...Read More

Once again

A faulty miscarriage of stanzas and exhaled anomalies,
“Man” withers
Unto a Shakespearean passing

“Man” testifies
Verbal precedence above cedar scented opinions
While providing expired empathy to their disfigured reflection

Oh, how their insolent pride glimmers
Similar to Cubic Zirconium weddings

Oh, how their “manhood” 
Falsely supplicates

Deformed Thumb
Deformed Thumb

Every time poetry when I want to write
Could never hold right hand real tight;
Thumb to me did look like a thimble;
Should this become my writing symbol?

Deformed thumb by God, He had made;
Writing received needs improvement grade
And He to me...Read More

It is so hard to let go of love,

It sharks, 
unpeels more gut more quickly
than reel or reeler ever lost
in all those years of lazy inches
in and out:
winding in and playing out,
hardly fishing, rarely catching
from the deepness out of sight,
