stripped from my gut leftovers bled
wolves sought carrion pursuing a shred
fervor severed splayed by a silver thread

an animated face mirrors rejection 
soured sweetened candied confection
snubs a reflection pursuing perfection

laced her pouring bawdy brew
with a sweetened blinding cue

Sleepy little baby lying on billows of sheets

Kindly Grandma whispered words repeat
Softly painting dreams on a hugging-pillow caressed

When the larynx shifts

Salty epithets march up and down his throat,
as if menacing the very fabric

Whispering apricot beams shine upon frilly sheers,
lazy shadows dance in daffodil dawn colors,
pirouettes of pleasured moments,
silently flowing on smooth brush stroke walls

rhythmically exhaling beneath satin sheets

blushing clouds hide behind a...Read More

From the cookies that sweetened the truth,
The green grass fields upon which the gander faded into goose,
The harmless swings that made it smooth,

O’ clergy, hark to the tuning,

Handed me tightly wrapped Chinese candy 
And Starburst occasionally

Fresh out of Haiti
Teased, punched and kicked
Scared and scarred
Yet well mannered
