The 100 Mile Hallway
I see a ghost standing
At the end of the hallway.
Or is it a person,
I ask myself. A child or friend
In fuzzy outline,
An empty figure.
Can anyone else see it?

The ghostboy stares
Through empty eyes,
Blackened pits void of sight.
Behind him lies an orange...Read More

To be and not to be.

My respect for life is profound
I try to become a vegetarian, but when I visited a restaurant
it was wildly expensive,
mind, it looked posh with livered waiters and haughty diners.
Ate soup and a glass of water

Premium Member Oh little gnat


Hovering like a gnat that finds a face irresistible
Swatting frantically does no good as
insects will be insects and annoying is part of their plan

As it seems each day you find a new offering unfolding its wings,
buzzing about with your dirty...Read More

I have to cut you loose
from the friendship tree
that is
your mind is to heavy
for my thinning branches

my circle continues to shrink
it's tiresome swatting lies..
those poisonous flies of life

beneath my dying branches
the dying fruit of life

The ghost
Someone knocked on my bedroom door
I switched the bedside lamp and with rolled
Up TLS opened the door.
Peering into the darkness of the living room
I thought I saw a shadowy figure
On approaching it disappeared
Checked the entrance door all was...Read More

My kitty for kiddies
Your paw for a hand
You've come to a swatting
where play comes to land

And wake up my senses
from pain to a scratch
When you offer me blessings
of play for a catch

Premium Member In a Cloud of Smoke
Long ago in a Laundromat
A couple of hippies just met
One asked the other if he smoked weed
He replied, "Every chance I get!"

With the police station next door
Behind the building's where they went
But soon became quite worried 
Alarmed by the smokes...Read More

Short Ribs W: Common Denominators
A walrus, a whale, and a wildebeest
Have a few things in common to comment on:
They've never read Byron, or Shelley, or Keats,
They don't like asparagus, broccoli, or beets,
Or waiting in line to buy Popsicle treats.
And that's about it,
No phenomenon.

Swing set riders
And sliding board sliders
And players
On the merry-go –round

Getting scratched up knees
From climbing up trees
Dirty sneakers
From the mud on the ground

Holding hands with his pal
Ignoring scratch from the fall
Shouting together
Playing on, calling all

Paying push –cart prices

I said the fly, "Have the need to pry,

Bags of leftovers
Things happen. Life unravels
The earth spins, perpetuating processes
And as we recount our travels
Our hearers marvel
Stories of prophets' heads on silver platters 
Representations of old things
And we should be somehow flattered
By images of our saggy bottoms and flaked skin
All the expected...Read More

God makes no MISTAKES.

Dare they to DISOBEY the law

Don't Cut your Hair
"Capucine, Capucine, let down your hair,"
yelled the Prince so handsome and fair
climbing up the braids, no knowledge Capucine's hair was cut
an enchantress yelled down from the tower, “Keep your mouth shut.”
