Hazmat Suit Blues
        - Hazmat Suit Blues -

Can't reach my stupid Cell phone.
I'm wheezing when I breathe.
My throat is parched and dry as stone
My nose tickles and I sneeze.

My bum is super itchy.
The window's scratched...Read More

Open Mic Night
Sweating bullets before you go on stage
Memorized every word on the page
Shaking like a leaf and having second thoughts 
All you gotta do is get up and talk
Got a funny story you heard on the news 
Remember, you’re there just...Read More

Sleep sweet child for the laughter of the leaves
has withered on the trees and the wind blows cold
as dusk calls with shallow, whispered breath
and nighttime masks the waiting dawn.

Let not a lone tear, drip from your tender eyes,
as you look...Read More

The psychology of a broken car
Has curled my heart with fear,
Will I have courageous life in my heart again,
But day after day with the sickening world I
wait, gift card in anxiously sweating hand.

For now I am quarantined who knows how...Read More

In the midst of a quiet summer day, while the sun is peeping
And the gentle breeze brushing everything, dancing and passing
Our hero, an ant, seen sweating and puffing, but still climbing
Like a soldier on mission, to the top of a...Read More

That Day In ‘73

That day in ‘73 was as clear and pristine as glass ice,
Torched by a brace of smitten souls falling in love.
There was no lush music to be heard in this duet,
No swiveling rhythms or conga lines for...Read More

Inconsistent
I’m blown away by my ability to feel
It rattles my core.  It’s raw and real
But then there are days, without even trying
I’m numb on the inside.  My empathy, dying
Often times, I’m clever, unparalleled wit
Then others, I’m blank, I...Read More

Blanketed by sunset, we turned on sides to face. Every time our eyes met, shaking hands & making introductions, I could feel myself sweating. Sweating like a candle, lit beside a hot bath. Coyly, I turned to face sky, extinguishing...Read More

smashed the drums
wrings sweating hands

boom...boom
trumpet puffed cheeks

      notorious red
     toot...toot...toot

feet tapping

spit sprays
    silver flute

fame’s up front
poetically sweet

audience yawns; cymbals

dull drums rev it up

O’ fair Adrenaline
Oh, powerful you make me strong;
I can’t do wrong
Beautiful Adrenaline
You got my heart pumping
Got my breath in my chest
I’m just sweating
Biceps protruding bulging;
I stand next to you Adrenaline

Hormonally
You’re stress,
You take my breath
Excited exertions do you brew

The first attack
The morning of one fall
I walk to the usual stand up call
With the smell of coffee 
As my constant company
The formal greetings of ten soul less voices
On the screen pops George’s face
The stress lines betray his fake smile
“Oh God! Not...Read More

Fall into her hair 
Let the waves take you where.........

Pleasures wait 
Clustered like mustard
Blistering the red
Framed in bed
Deep breaths deep inside the apple’s core

Pleasures wait

The Curse of a Motor Mower
They’re motives of the weekend - they’re a gardener’s saving grace,
buzzing up and down and ‘round and ‘round cleaning up the place.
There’s nothing like the latest smell of a freshly mown down lawn,
once you ease a hiccup which can cause...Read More

SHAKEN UP

The vortex sucked
me into the globe.
  shaken, distressed
pounding on the confines
of the glass.
   the snow n-e-v-e-r stops.

Music lifts,
   from the bowels
of this new world —
the humor of “it’s
    a small world”

Suddenly...Read More

"The Hummingbird Cake"




The day started bright -

Bright Eggshell Blue
and ended in percussion
dark and cloudy stormed in
thunder pummelled drums
against a backdrop of 
bruised eggshell dijon yellow
sweating heavy sage green
spitting spoilt the swollen pride of purple,
a wet abrasion against 
Electric Blue

Waiting rooms are the worst by far
Avoiding the stares of others we stare at the floor
So uncomfortable
Others also vulnerable
Some are sweating bullets, others snore

Bearing Another Fall
This morning I woke up from a deep sleep
my knees on the hardwood floor-shaking
beating chest hung over my mattress like
a chicken on a rope. Swaying bait for the demons
that lurk in my REM cycle
sweating brow perched atop clasped hands-
teetering like...Read More

THE WAX CRIES WITH HAPPINESS

Mom’s up early with the plucked bird, stuffing it.
The bare rinsed butterball, portions for six.
All day our mouths water, stomachs pitching a fit,
as we wait for the skin to crisp...delicious drumsticks.

Potatoes peeled and pressured, mashed, stirred

What'll Do to You?
Choices, forks in the less traveled road,
Fighting for ideals abroad,
Boldly opposing status quo,
Sweating, planting, straining hoe,
Beads run down brow trading,
A drift downstream for upstream wading,
Blisters arise, bruises blue imbue,
Reaching deeper to sacrifice true,
Unflagging spirits fight the fight,
'Til...Read More

my dream girl
when you meet for the very first time,
you know in your heart, that things feel right,
belly churning and butterfly,s to,
get excited when there near you,

palms are sweating just like rain,
knees like jelly,...Read More
