Anguish
Arriving in the middle of the night,
anguish faced me head on,
it woke me up with a start,
a feeling of acute distress
as I recalled jumping off a cliff
and landing into the ocean below,
my body landed into the watery brine,
sinking into a...Read More

Premium Member Spiritual Cookery

Spirit and flesh have been boiling together. 
Years of smutch, and oily reduction, 
and each day a thin scum to be skimmed. 

A job for a Chef de Cuisine,
a kitchen phantom 
who though never seen, has been 
keeping the suspension...Read More

When you and I are in the attic
I may not be quite diplomatic,
for you are my cruise-o-matic.
So listen to me and pay attention,
for when you lower your suspension
my motor runs hot and lauds ascension.

Radical planet friendly measures

Green spyder
When I first saw it
	in the dark corner there
where none would see it
	hidden away from sight

dark green was its color
	in the darkness hard to see
with few bright glitters
	catching the light

smooth flowing curves it had
	without harsh lines breaking the flow
all was...Read More

Mem
The sea has changed.
Savagely undulating waves of green putrefaction keep the tides of life
in suspension.
By the shore, a dead purple fish is gaping at
the palor of a grey leaden sky in disbelief.
Is it all? Is it all?
A moment of prudent...Read More

Premium Member From my Hammock

I turn off the spicket of daily business
From inside the cocoon
Of my hammock
My world seems different
As I gently sway, caressed in suspension
No effort needed
To watch the graceful lineal limbs
Of a cedar tree
Rising like a chipmunks’ ladder
With swags of green falling
