Her heart is vicious
I can count on one hand how many times I've hunted for sex
Otherwise I'm intreged by how she confronts my respect
With her neglectful insulting self worshiping eyes
With her slowly growing suprize by my burning insides
I've devised plans to manage like...Read More

Beneath her feet sodden ground
motionless and weary she stands alone
a north wind hurls around her
yet, she does not feel the biting cold
her heart is broken and will not mend
an already grey sky darkens
motionless she is in her darkest hour
a cold...Read More

I am the catfish
scavenging muddy rivers
bottom lakes and streams
lo, muddy waters
dark and mildly polluted 
feeds I bottoms quake
mud lark dark fish swims
at the bottom streams swimming
in deep dark waters

An Artificial Arrogance

We can manage today and live till tomorrow
With a minimal walk out, or potential for sorrow
There's more than enough, in our fridges and freezers
The dried goods, the cans, and Bacardi Breezers
Whilst some people think that their time and their leisure
Should...Read More

Sing, My Bonnie Valentine - Valentine's Collection - 2020
As the night does sing a gentle lullaby  
Beholding an angel, my heart does sing
Catching my Valentine, as she falls from the moon
Dance with me through love’s own stars
Eternal Valentine, touch my passion’d soul
Finding in your heart, the joy...Read More

She is a beautiful girl
As she walks through the Valley of Trust
With her parents
At eleven

She becomes more graceful
As she sprints through the Grasslands of Independence
Without her parents due to a dispute
At twelve

She hunches her back
As she swims through the River...Read More

Memory has got deeper, 
lake deep. 
There are bodies still yoyoing around in that water – 
most of them younger images of me.

A buoyed-up-recognizable-self rises to the surface:
I’ve lost weight, I think, 
then I recall the year that trimmer-likeness took...Read More

In the middle, a calm steady breeze and we inhale the obvious freshness
In the sky, our sun hides its face and clouds swell and spy on canopies
The first round bulb of a drop of the rain and we bubble with...Read More

Underwater, the chains, tying me to the world, break, 
In the rippling waves, my shivering body does quake.

Underwater, my body as weightless as a ghost lies, 
Where all sound is muted, where salt stings my eyes. 

Peace engulfs me in...Read More

The Frog
Various animals, Almighty God created
In water, on land, in the air them he placed
Like a tick, others on other bodies he stuck

The frog on land and in water, he acclimates.
His slippery skin, good protection it makes
Into the water, he dives...Read More

Within my mind walls, upon a screen,
amazing adventures can be seen.
Through the fog that slowly drifts,
a lovely swan, her wings she lifts.

Head held high shows she is pleased
by evening light’s embracing breeze.
Into the water, she then glides,
upon liquid silver, she...Read More

She Sings Songs Solo

She swims on squealing stream of spring song,
sings solo sailing slow in storm surge so strong,
slips on steep slippery slope of sticky silt sheets,
on snapped strings of split Sarangi she sadly sits.

(Sarangi is an Indian musical instrument with three

There is a lovely fellow;
a joyous sight to see.
A personality that’s quite mellow;
he swims space easily.

He travels many light years;
dancing in and out through time.
His song in my ears brings the tears;
Sometimes for him, I pine.

In my glass eye, I...Read More

Loved to play the tuba.
His dad told him, my son be wise, get some exercise.
He now swims and does scuba.

The smoke

Smoke engulf us
Your smoke, Prime Minister
Born of climate and change
My rage knows its new bounds
Found in truth

The reality of life, ordinary life
But what would you know of our existence?
In your bubble of denial
A river of lies...Read More

She darkly dreams in Anger Valley
discovered shortly and belongingly after
original Fear uncovered
floating languorously downstream
to leave behind red hot footprints
of childhood work
and play
and pray for change,
growing health,
by increasing win/win compassion healing,

Or terror aggressively swims upstream Fear

Brenda has a big bottom,
it causes quite a wake
as she swims toward me.

Soft girl steaming up to my woody
chuffing like a tugboat,
mouth as wide as a catfish.

Such things are not written of
nearly enough.

Who by fire
 watches the earth burn?

Who believes that matter
 is neither created nor destroyed?

Who burns their bridges behind them
 after walking across its form?

Who swims the water's edge

Who drowns his spirit
 in alcohol, drug,...Read More

chill break of the day

who ever knew that
a squirrel could swim on top
of the waters so
unfriendly cockcrow
a gray, silly squirrel swims
whilst watching the fish
