Mid Noon Country
Tis I write, where blood is bled,
Where the sun the sky, doth wed,
In the heights of its boils,
Struggles lives sweats and toils,

Not much be said, though! There is lot,
Spoketh when, but spoketh not,
That so much chatter of freedom be,
Spill't out...Read More

An ode to Uncle Jason
Uncle Jason, 
something he was chasing.
He was looking for something to fulfil a void.
Because of God’s love and mercy, he wasn’t destroyed.
He was on drugs for over 20 years.
Night after night he cried bitter tears.
Without getting high he couldn’t function.

Life's Destiny
Something about this nature calls to me
To set me free
Of this heartbreak I forsee

Inside, something stirrs
Though my destiny still blurs
But what do I prefer?

Should I care for a young one?
Or is that too much to be done?
Though, it seems like...Read More

It's new years eve or bonfire night.
Veterans hide away in fright
They fear that they may crumble 
As the fireworks start to rumble

Even if there tucked up in bed
The flashes and bangs mess up the head
Hot sweats, and uncontrollable  shaking

they are jeans and sweats; they are what we

(Nigeria poem)

They gave us an inch
We took eels,
Left four jugs
At the shore, pronounced our future loaves of bread in them
Then waved to the wind.

They left their ancestors on our soil
So we worship it.
They tie us to it apron string,
Propitiating...Read More

Georg Trakl translation: To the boy Elis
To the boy Elis
by Georg Trakl
translation by Michael R. Burch 
Elis, when the blackbird cries from the black forest,
it announces your downfall.
Your lips sip the rock-spring's blue coolness.
Your brow sweats blood
recalling ancient myths
and dark interpretations of birds'...Read More

True Pain
The truth is
nobody really cares
they say they do
but really,
they don't even remember.
They aren't reminded each day
of this gaping hole in our hearts.
Reality is transposed
and it's us four against the world.
No matter how many prayers,
how many messages,
how many hugs.
No amount of...Read More

Premium Member Who Broke Me
I sit looking at my half full 
glass of rum watching
as the clear glass sweats 
and the droplets 
leave a trail down the sides

Funny I see it half full 
when my life feels half empty
I push it away not wanting...Read More

Premium Member The Window

The window is long and narrow,
the casement-sill a brooding lid way over my head.
The glass is dirty, thick and knotted.
It is not a window made to see through.

Upstairs, high above the basement
an old woman lives in an apartment with a...Read More

How chilled the windy breezes
 temperature drop upon the atmosphere
body shakes and sweats, coughs and sneezes
 blow harsh and sharp, winter burn and sear.

Gone is the brilliant glow of sun
 spring and summer lost to time of day

Its Crippling Me
The way it chokes me up, wrapping its hands around my neck
It’s crippling me.

My chest caves in, my hands tremble, my body sweats.
It’s crippling me.

I feel vulnerable, scared, anxious, and shameful.
It’s crippling me. 

I can’t eat, I can’t think, I...Read More

Night Sweats

Startled at night, I awake,
frozen, motionless, immobilized,
eyes straining into the black void,
phantoms darting about me,
springing from every direction,
heart racing, rapidly breathing,

fantasy and fear running amok

Waiting for heart surgery

No more jokes about the seriousness of
My friend’s surgery.

The stillness overwhelms me

Or if he has any

Slim elegance, pencil-sharp,
dark business skirt,
pure contrasts
where the black cuts
a clear white neckline.

Stretchy pants, 
wide at the beam,
rumpled fore and rear,
a clear predilection 
for sweats.

The two women
enter by the same door,
both will leave
by the same door,
never noting each other.

The fuzzy store-greeter,
stacks...Read More

Here in my rented acre of Ohio;
I feel the generations,
the hungarians, the irish and germans,
the dutch, the blacks, the shawnee.
We are not a melting pot,
we are birds and critters brought here
by wild, wild winds.

a great, loathsome spider sweats
enjoying the heat

while spinning his web
using his mouth and eight legs

A comfy pair of sweats,
