Premium Member the devil's conch
childhood was bloodied
when the CSX ran over my puppy
for years I threw rocks at the freight cars
trains were supposed to be your BEST friend
not a killer of soft things that wag their tails
and lick your face when you come home...Read More

Premium Member Possums

On the road - a possum family
all quickly slaughtered together.

There is something about their crushed bodies
strewn according to size and age as they are.

The whole family pretending to be dead,
even now in deaths squash
still seeking inconspicuousness.

I recall those monochrome pictures

Ominous nighttime foray
Crow's claws carrion campy carping
nsync nocturnal teenage mutant ninja turtles
analogous to scuttling
(think) browed beastie boys scarab beetle
brandishing sharp small scabbard swords

delightedly digging daggers deep
into deadened prey
rotting roadkill repulsively reeking
formerly (mere moments ago) once
fancy free and footloose

happy go lucky creatures

I tried to share my insights
Lost you in fright

Dare I speak in foreign terms
Something left to learn

Coming from a different venue
In a thousand books the clue

In the nature of things
Its the Swerve that sings

Philosophy and great literature
Free from ignorance the...Read More

With brazen face 'fore You I stand
To plead for Mercy from Your Hand

My self-examinations pained
How can I summon up such nerve? --

We rode beyond the flip
Of Walter and his friends,
On this homo steady slip
In the cabin to the west,
Where the pride of lions sleep
All night till the end.

The corns are left for rats,
The moonlight is left

Deer Ruby,

Compare the comparisons
nothing different
Addiction to life can be a real killer
Sitting at the back

Laugh without hesitation
One lookers smile
with nervous embarrassment
but i can see the joy she meant
Through the shadow self

slathered with serpentine

Holdin' Back Sunday
Weekends go fast
Time is a curve
And if you drive a car
Watch out you don’t swerve
Watch out you don’t swerve
When you come ‘round the bend

Death and dishonor –
All those ugly words
Always hovering closer
Like malevolent birds

Letting go of selfish yearnings

A Better Person
"A Better Person"

Long ago I learned it
Nobody on this Earth is 
That's for certain

I'm determined
To be a better person
As I continue workin'
Ready to handle any burden

Not yet affirmative
We're still not so sure of it
If elsewhere life stirs and exists

Drawing the lines across the sky,
Stormy lights and roaring drums,
Rain the nakhlites that fall nigh,
Facing the fate as it comes.

Embrace the patches along a shoal,
Mist in the heart so remote, 
Being one, only and jolly whole,
You’ren’t a sun to glare...Read More

Inspect Than Detect and Correct
Inspect than detect and correct.

Remittance for pittance was part of admittance.

Swerve after you observe the curve.

Receive, retrieve and relieve.

Amount of deceased increased and their
souls would be released.

To straighten out the Trump mess;
Give much attention and him bless;
Much nerve,

They always do decide to acquiesce.
