Tea for Two
she spoke of two in metaphor
consequence and heretofore
laced her pouring bawdy brew
with a sweetened blinding cue

she hypnotized 
dancing emerald eyes
trapped me with her wily guise  

we drank a tepid tea for two
concocted by a crafty shrew
sweaty salty we both...Read More

Silly little witch

Have you,
Have you ever been to a well with talking waters

That breathe life into your soul with silent words

That love feels as sure as the sun in a hot desert

But can get as cold as dew on a gloomy morning

Have you...Read More

There are people who smoke their coffee, eat cigarettes, snort beer and throwaway food. Are they ill in the head? Their life tapping out a story. Unknown realities straight out of a comic book. See the girl poet crawl on...Read More

The Clown

The spotlight flashes funny flair on sagged dress,
miniature crimson sun stuck on the porcelain face.
An animated caricature in comical frail human figure
tramps round and round the circus pitch to amuse. 

Sprightly body gyrates in flexed moves of acrobatics,
sleight of hands...Read More

Delivery room
The laughter of the wind .
The silence of winter.
The punishment of determination.

As she pushed and pushed ! Moaning to get him out, it was the realization of stubbornness being born.

Premium Member Nature Leading to Magic

At times, the path that we were taking dwindled to not even a thread of trail,
but we kept trudging forward as if by instinct.
Although the old path was overtaken by myriad weeds
and a fathomless expanse of green, we walked with...Read More

slumped over
of revenge --
hug mother
for dear life!-- 
startling awake
woodpecker foot
relentlessly taps
not my fault

dinner table food
mangled by 
screams, curses
roars its way
back up
will I die first

In the circus of my mind
I see a tight rope
Perched high above the faceless people
I’m afraid of heights but there’s something
That draws me to you

I climb, with sweaty palms to the top
The view is magnificent but I’m dizzy
Considering the temptation...Read More

Premium Member Hangman
Wonder what the hangman had in mind
When he was looking in the doomed man’s eyes,
While double-checking if the noose was right 
Did he have haunting, hollow dreams at night?
Did he empathize with the condemned man?
Was it compassion for beloved ones?
Or...Read More

I wandered lonely as a cloud* 
to places far and wide
I often thought it would be fun 
to rain down on a bride
Or maybe on a summer Fete
as rain is something people hate
When dressed up in their finery
they saunter in...Read More

Bullets can't dance
The air stale, thick and cloudy with years of gin soaked carpet odor and cigarette vapor of  inconsiderate drag and chain smokers.
The colors smear together and the music disconnected and hypnotic.
The smell of flat beer and warm rye burn...Read More

Cross the river Charles
Steady stream of steam the bogs envelop 
Sweaty air resists your passage
Drift to town a short distance down

Woolly summer wonder wrought
All move and sing at once
A billow from his pipe
His bellow calls you up to join him

When the call of adventure dawned on the wayfaring traveller

He sat down at the rock face quite tearful weary and sweaty

Thought about fate meaning and streamed in consciousness

A poet with a license to kill time and serene wavering spirit

Cont'd from Yeastie-Beastie: Part 1 

"If you have more yeast," she uttered, 
"you'll be quite a sight.
With a bigger mouth you'll surely 
take a bigger bite."

So the greedy Yeastie-Beastie

Sex Hex
by Michael R. Burch

Love's full of cute paradoxes
(and highly acute poxes).
Midnight Stairclimber

then—long, long after the sex dies—
the source of endless exercise.
