My foe, shivering
I drew my sword, glistening
Swooning dead away, he, hushed...
Over to him, ran
I, swashbuckling... Arising
he, screaming madly... Deaf, I...Read More

Bronwyn's Mate, Part II
To Hellie's credit, she had rightly judged...
for, all told- the young man was quite shady
so from her guard-post she would not be budged
for she was most loyal to her lady

And when he cooed and whined to survey
Bronwyn's hide-out with treasures...Read More

Barefoot Buccaneer
Bronwyn the Barbaric was a buxom lass
the envy of all her peers
She spoke with unrivaled swashbuckling sass
her pirate-ess fashion was fierce

She could charm off the arms of the most hardened men
how they'd swoon at the sight of her swagger
She ruled...Read More

Destiny's Railroad
In times oft-forgotten great freight trains rolled through.
Each boxcar was tagged in a swashbuckling hue,
Flamboyantly hawking some stale, mawkish view.
Now all that remains is the desolate track.
Clickety-clack, clickety-clack:
Our eeriest memories’ ethereal track.

Those heart-pounding engines, in Santa Fe red!
Their sheer mass...Read More

Theater of Utter Charm - Part 30
in the language of personal amplification
you'd think it was all a scam
to make you drop your guard
and play patty cakes with Evil
job 3 was to rearrange your molecules
into an actual you
capable of withstanding
the outcomes you generate
from a lack of detail

Leotards versus jumpers but just what one per cent will actually climb a tree
One day an ancient barrel decided it had truly had enough as it tripped over a bale of hay on the staircase. ENOUGH he shouted ENOUGH. But the only thing to hear this cry was the walls and floors who...Read More

Paper Boats
Paper boats drifting down the slow flowing stream, 
his mind enchanted by a vivid daydream, 
of pirates and treasure and rum on the run, 
all the while holding tight, to the hand of his mum. 

At four years old he...Read More

It was "The Cape" in early June
Along with her sister Vie
They had strolled down past the dunes
Under a cloudless sky

She could taste the ocean salt 
On a swirling southern breeze
In new dresses mother bought
Instead of their dungarees

On a rock, the...Read More

Click on connect,
To a world brought together,
By Sun, Cisco, and Gates,
And cybervixens named Heather,
You or your business,
Can be what you dream,
No matter the cost,
Or so it would seem,
Preceding some word or phrase,
The destination is gold,
At the end of each maze,

Occupied by the crowd of fair-weather friends,
which i suppose had become today's trend,
i realized that how solitary i am?
just asking for a shed,can anyone lend?
I can't demonstrate my emotions in the mob,
keeping them inside, my robe sob.

Swashbuckling Pirate or Demented Hairdresser
Eyes that draw you in, eyeliner accentuates not always sexy on men
Different movies, different accents, believable at all times
Every movie he's in, each character he plays seems to be a part of him
From shy, withdrawn hairdresser, with scissors for hands

You can move on
You can see the light of day
But you've left me behind
Behind in this endless night

You can be strong
A cherished hero
But you've left me defenseless
Paralyzed by fear

You can go about
Your daily life
Taking the whole world in your stride
Yet...Read More

I, Poet
Heap humor upon the scholars
Philosophers and thinkers alike
For, "-Ologies or -tists” to ending of names
Do not facts of science make

Where emotions may eclipse
To experience adventures of love 
Delve into fantasy, breakout and escape

Rare Book
Curator rings last bells
Closing for the night

In a deep dark sea
Behind blackened windows
Lies shelves in mystical infatuations
Where rare tomes must dwell away from modern day
Among ancient particles of manuscript saturation 
Mysteries here they have no end
But, initiate in the...Read More

The Poeteer
Fondle the philosophers
Or scholars and thinkers alike

Where emotions may eclipse
To experience adventures of love 
Delve into fantasy and escape 

Then, might I suggest to be led away...

The wearing of the green
damn, if it doesn’t remind me of you
of the swashbuckling laggard you were
and the ripple of muscle across your broad back
the salt and pepper curls on your chest
and whiskers tickling my ear.
