Premium Member DIY for a Carousel of Dreams
Covid 19 leaves restless kiddies with parents’ imagination at home

So why not create fantasy in the lounge for a resilient pleasure dome

Grannies’ chest of drawers comes alive as a goal with lace for a net

hips swivel, i shimmy
over to spouse,
my finger seriously
pointing at him,
sure sparkling eyes.

my pointer aiming
his way, wanting
its way with him.

my darling’s attention,
intentionally on me -

my lips close in
on my lover,
i sing,
“i want you…”

mindfully pointing
at him,
my finger taps
onto my wrist,

down in the basement it is warm
with memories of
Grandma’s beauty shop
and dusty with
piles of books.

to ward off
my merry-go-round spree
of her chair,
she sends me downstairs
to choose
whatever books that i want.

i was drawn to
Daphne Du Marier’s
funny i never read
but watched the movie

Premium Member Kissing Lips
Buddy began to call his girl 'Hot Lips'
The day she started to swivel her hips --
   He let out a wolf whistle
   She French-licked his stiff thistle --
Then lasciviously kissed velvet whips

if I were the Devil
If I were the devil,
I would be playing on my fiddle 
And dancing a jig,
As most now don't give a fig.

If I were the devil, 
My grin would be positively evil
As I count the souls that have fallen onto my...Read More

Premium Member Grateful to the Spider
Spider walked out of her lower back 
Walking up toward her medulla
Took a huge bite.
Giving her a reality check.
She grimaced.
Feeling herself for the first time
in three weeks.
Glad for the reality check.
Grateful to the spider 
Which had left its web in...Read More

 An owl takes off in silent flight
 Listening for its prey's slightest move
 For creatures which forage at night
 Survival is a skill they must constantly prove
 A heart shaped face belies its guile
 Its head can swivel...Read More

My mind cannot fall under your spell
Vehemently resists outside control
When I click my fingers, Elvis Presley
Swivel your hips, blue suede Rock n Roll

My will is much stronger than yours
No persuasion can make me your fool

brainless part 1 If mobile phones were human

Deep within the decrepit graveyard
Alight by a circular moon

Concrete creaks
Gravestones crack
Grotesque bodies rise
in ghastly fashion.

khaki grass crunches
beneath gangling feet

mechanical movements
macabre murmurs
and creaking bones
march forward, famished.



darkened streets,
crowding alleys,
stalking backyards...


flesh, falls to the floor...
gruesome grey,
Dearly departed,

Flocks of odious creatures
Litter streets
Masticating and munching
unsuspecting...Read More

All is Signal

after assassinating my inner constable
to no on stage ill effect whatsoever

as a ghost in the compulsory banquet gravy

Beneath the fabled, innocent and polished mind
In a tinderbox wrapped up by an askant beldam’s hand
Above an unmarked grave that is welcoming, rather kind
A pair of eyes noticed a hue in the dunes of white sand.

Humidity Coffee and Going it Alone

Sleeping was an effort. Humidity draped
my body like wet folds of clothing, as though
I had slept in some steamy rain forest. 
For days it did not let up.

Gradually, I rolled off the ledge 
of consciousness into a brief but sound...Read More

Premium Member The Time Eaters
Snip! And your ear-bones are scraped of their meat
by the scurry-tap-tap of their friable feet,
as you cringe at the swivel of each cold obsidian eye.
The terrible dust of what-never-more-can
trails deep in their wake, and the shortening span
before them is crushed...Read More

there's only one way
straight down is all you control
so use a bobber

line through a swivel
with sinkers and lucks good bait
play out line and wait

Rain has a dancing feel
It brings me night crawlers
Who swivel around on warm pavement
Creeping out the weak
Delighting me

Measuring my happiness

Or am I going to moan...Read More

For a fee we had negotiated
She looked pretty stunning, my heart it was gunning

Crime is Causing Chaos and Fear
Helping, please and thank you's are
Getting less and very far
From manners and society
It's getting harder to see
Old fashioned ways we're used to
These days we don't have a clue
How to behave or act civil
We are turning on a swivel
Of rudeness and...Read More

The end of my Zebco rod and reel,

I hear his cawing cry come from the elm
see him take a steep glide straight to me 
he flaps, flares, flies onto garden fence

fine tunes the fulcrum for perfect pivot 
his feet lock tight; his hold confident
