Premium Member Ron Monogamed Everything
Ron monogramed his socks
He monogramed his shoes
He monogramed his kids
He monogramed his glues

Ron monogramed his ham
He monogramed his gram
He brought his inks to his wife Sam
She gave him a swift mean body slam
It was Ron’s last day to monogram.

Milestones Toward Oblivion
Milestones Toward Oblivion
by Michael R. Burch

A milestone here leans heavily
against a gaunt, golemic tree.
These words are chiseled thereupon:
"One mile and then Oblivion."

Swift larks that once swooped down to feed
on groping slugs, such insects breed
within their radiant flesh and bones ...

Unsmiling gray wisp fingers drift and bore 
A helical ridge around the vast sky; 
Down abutting poignant horizon floor. 
Alga blooms a huffy infectious cry. 

A tree hollow bears nestling hanging high.
Lively songbird-swallows touched by the stir 
Swift cry, swell...Read More

KonMari My Life
Oh gosh
In a maze 
Mess over here
Mess over there

Like zombie apocalypse 
Coming to get me

Gonna plan 
My action of attack
With plastic bags and boxes
As their coffins

Ain't compromise
Ain't shedding a tear
Coz this will set me free
Opening up the horizon

Tho a victim of veracious voluptuous vociferous bum,

Covid-19 Changes the World
For the better or for worse?
It spreads like a plague, deadly and swift. 
Fear is unleashed and fear is thick.
Stores are shopped clean; limits are placed on items we need.
Workers are laid off, funds are low—
make way for the thieves.

Test of Man
What are we capable of, we have no knowledge.
Until pushed to the wall, pushed too thin. 
Steroids of power rushing through;
Inside walls of firm unleased space.

Even for trust that seemed so strong,
Broken with one swift harsh push.

In the open fields like horses of the past.
To embark on a wonderful adventure
And connect with such a lovely creature.

Horses appear on the canvas in my head

There is an ocean that dances next to me
She cradles time and sees every inch of my body

Moving through the tide
Pulled inwards that surrounds

Silent as a sound

The Fool who Broke the Rule
A patriot to the loyal cause, so the few are told
Fear being the enemy, an upper hand to hold
The innocuous ashen faced bastard, selects his crowded places
Which all too soon will be flooded, with terrified, contorted faces
Talking to no-one, he...Read More

Weave your fingers in mine and prolong our parting.

By: Miracle Man

No prison is quite as confining,
As being totally dependent upon another.
and depriving the unborn of life, God sees as an abomination.
