Corona Comes
Corona claws your deep-fear door, a wily wolf sniffing for prey,
sick-snarly behind its lamb-meek facade.
It can't believe its luck - opportunistic thief
at the door, happy to find you home.

Funereal florist fashioning a coronal of funeral flowers,
its corona of white lily-light...Read More

Adieux
After three decades and a kicking more,
I deem it glaring waste and blatant loss
To play sad part of second servile fiddle
In elite cadres agleam with ersatz gloss.

Whatever charged scrolls attuned to pelt
With loaded deterrents deft souls that try,
I now must...Read More

The Songbird
Hidden away beneath lightless barrier,

Restrained by bars of rusted brass,

A songbird, whomst once so brilliantly was plumed,

Sleeps now, under wing faded ash.

Impurpled velvet, whence the darkness was procured,

He swipes vigorously from atop her cage,

And demands of her the luxury of...Read More

Act 2. A dark, empty stage.

Marat
(standing up)

It's all a blur. It’s all a little dizzy. 
I just have dreamed a scary dream as if 
two vagabond philosophers robbed me
and killed. I must admit it's a bit strange:

Love, I Wait For Thee
Starved soul
Burning throat
Hard lump
Stray tears
Nostalgic heart
Burning quietly
So alone
But why
This fate
So tragic
So passionate
So shy
So imperfect
So tender
No likes
No swipes
No dates
No wives
No family
Just quiet
Empty room
Silent contemplation
No pity
One day
Just maybe
Perhaps tomorrow
Next week
Next year
I believe
It hurts
Hold on
To belief
It's all
I have

SWELL YA SUMTHANG SORE
HE WISHED HER TO BE MORE RESPECTFUL
A WELL MANNERED PERSON
WITH DESTINCTIONS THAT
WERE TO DISGINQUISH FROM ALL OTHERS
SHE WAS BRASH, MEAN AND SURLEY
A COMMON WOMAN

INSTEAD OF ASKING FOR BEEF 
SHE TOOK CATTLE FROM BARNS AT NIGHT

Armageddon

There's crowds in the streets all around the UK
Shelves being ransacked at Tesco all day
It's happening too in the U S of A

My TV depicting an end, clearly near

The Fear
7/19/2019
This darkness is all I know, 
a widow's wardrobe of funeral clothes.
It hangs curtained under my eyes, 
the seed inside me grows allowing the little girl I was to die.

Insomniac sleep walking down the streets, cautiously hopping turnstiles,
custodians keep mopping...Read More

A facebook wave of stupidity swipes the board from underneath my feet
Drowning in sea of mediocrity
Google sharks bite data from my soul

Down
Dressed down, the organic earth-child still narrowly escapes the ravenous lapping of El Oso. Once the brute is felled by the fair, surely the tickled dragon’s snout fumes. The never-satiated beast fumes, and swipes with an eager pink swath, each...Read More

You turned up to paint my house today, 
About half past eight,
And when I saw you standing there, 
You nearly made me faint,

The cans and cloths, rolls and brush, 
Were not enough to distract,
My eyes from your overalls and boots,...Read More

Premium Member On This Night
The silence seems almost against the norm,
for nature is unnaturally still.
The proverbial “calm before the storm”
permeates the air, but some lightening will
appear, and leaves will quiver on the trees.
Stay not outside! The wind is getting strong.
This is not your usual...Read More

he says a lot

his finger swipes dark
dust, blows waves

Unforgiving Blue
The unforgiving depths of blue.

Distilled, unchanged, until an uncertain hand spills the contents of a pen, plunging a forest into eternal darkness.

Beautiful arrays of oranges and vibrant lilacs, air only passing through in small, intricate capsules; as if each one...Read More

The Color of Loving You
My favorite colors
Were blue and
Red

Blue for calm and
River and storm
An echo of the 
Night sky.

Red was for flame and
Anger and
The hesitant second
Before you pressed
Your lips to 
Mine.

Red and blue were
My favorite colors
Were.
Now its you
You.

Swirls of everything
Passion, fury,
Confidence.
Swipes of smiles
Teardrop splatters

Bubbles and Jazz
False clouds float past
A child swipes at one
Violet eyed dewdrops
Stick to our skin
And fall from the sky
Billowing shapes twinkle and vanish
We talk to those who aren't there
Music comes beyond the waves
And it could be our souls
Humming in pure delight
The air...Read More

"Where is the sun, where is the moon?"
the mirror asks.
He sees the silence in the other's gaze—
crouched against the wall
an empty face where once
two small diamonds burned
and cut in two
who once was whole

"Where is the blanket for the cold?"

She'll Be Ok
She hurts to the extreme
There’s nothing in between
She doesn’t want to cry 
She just wonders why
A rebellious tear breaks through the wall
She swipes it away like it was nothing at all
But the tears swell up in her eyes so blue

The bear swipes the leaves
It is looking for some food
Then it stops and stares
I don't know if it sees me
I am still, I am watching

Taste touch
Mind much
Spread such


Glimpse grounds
Strange sounds
Rich rounds


Chance caves
Words wave
Straight saves


Feel flow
Grand glow
Signs show


New noise
Vet voice
Proud poise


Touch things
Spur sling
Fate flings


Rude rides
Sad swipes
Wet wipes


Charm crafts
Dream draft
Graze graft

surrounded by an array

of lithe movement in a wet

meadow; dance blue butterflies

kitten swipes to play


fluttering of butterflies 

elude with beauty and grace 

they scatter and fly away

kitten lays s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g

An Old Hyena Stalks the Pack
Lurking in the darkest shadows,
she looks for one of us to hound,
trying to catch a little glimpse
as she staggers along and limps

Spittle and drool keeps dripping
from yellow teeth and snarling lips.
She whines and hunches her back
picking out one of us...Read More
