"Another Man’s Treasure"



Jetsam tumbles
broken doorbells
no one
answers
anymore

ironing boards 
pressing to imprint
something of significance
a life, your life
droll and predictable

it all sinks 
to the bottom 
of a bad dream
with yesterday’s 
stale tears

sharp heels
clicking on a parquet floor
like knives ripping words
jagged scratches on old...Read More

Hawai'i Nei
Wahine hula dance all night
Swivelling hips beneath moonlight
But comes the dawn
Bikini on
They surf the waves like dynamite!...Read More

Talk to me
Would you please tell me where I wronged you
Said I to Love
As we sat close to each other
Yet,
Distanced!

Would you please tell me 
As I understand not,
After all,
I simply obeyed the skies,
The booms of my heart
And the tugs of my senses!

I...Read More

To love or to battle
The sunset was amazing,
Blinding,
Divine, wonderful!

Yet, standing on the ocean bed
Was a warship
Loaded, armed,
Ready to attack!

It felt like life on Earth had become hell
Now,
To fight shall we
To try to survive shall we
All else,
Dreams, secrets, longings,
Ambitions, love, great becomings,
Nothing would ever be...Read More

Having to Fight
You will have to fight to survive
Whispered the guardian angels 
Watching over me
As I was swivelling in between the folds
Of consciousness lapsed in deep sleep!

You will have to fight
Even if we will be by your side!

My soul woke up, bloomed...Read More

AUTUMN LEAVES MEDITATION
OUTSIDE YOUR WINDOW IS  A BRILLIANCE OF LEAVES SWIVELLING AND 
DANCING ROUND AND ROUND.  THE SKY IS THE COLOR OF MAPLE SYRUP. 
THERE IS A HINT OF BURGUNDY ETCHED ON EACH GOLDEN LEAF  (B)

YOUR HEART HAS BECOME...Read More

Night Mares
The ceiling's dark is swivelling to stars,
but something stirs the sea, turns skies tidal:
the nightly mares who call from moon and Mars
and shake the shackle of daylight's bridle.
They plunder each planet with hooves of hell
and dream-stampede across black plains of...Read More

It makes a heart glad to know 
there are still, small country towns 
like Woodford, where homes 
with large old trees, 
sit scattered between small shops
and local businesses
 
To think the spirit of Elvis exists 
in a greengrocers’, called, “Grapelands.”

Snowman, his coat a trillion frosty threads...crotched by Jack,

The Ruba’iyat of Créteil Lake – Part Fifteen

She dreamed a dream all unfulfilled all through the dragging day
Even while she tossed and grumbled half-starved and in dismay
Two lives she lived as the swivelling Door swung through her faith

Tuna On The Cob
Scented ember a moulted smoulder
Skied as crackling softness 
Spied and felt thru a film of dexterity
Uncalibrated, solvent, translucid
Trance and dance

Street fleet, guttering inhabited by creased indoctrination
Yet to be ironed
Yet to be pressed and left on the stoop
Cornered like bluefin, fed,...Read More

Premium Member Way out over Copland's Appalachian Springs
 
We dragged the slopes to our feet.
On the summit, we burnt our clothes
for wood and there shuffled our feet
in the hush of the falling snow.
 
We had come out of the scuffed grass.
 
With one look back in unbelief

To live, flightless birds
A single branch, clawed and pecked, fickle and straining,
Lonely Nestling and father, paw and peck at their home
Lonely branch, spasms in the wind
Nestling and father paw and peck, yearn and whimper
These Flightless Birds, on a fickle branch

Young nestling skitters to...Read More

You Speak of Love
You speak of love
And I
Suddenly
No mere Jason for a mother's life
Cannot shake how flimsy
The promises of loyalty sail
The desert sea of needs.
And so beyond
The gourmet of the eyes
For swivelling hips and honeycomb drips
I sought my paradise
Beyond the wilting flowers of...Read More

this town
this town cries 
thru nights
in sirens, in
flashing lights- 
it is the fear
that shakes the
air, not the cold-
sight swivelling
fast, hasty & 
unclear. the day
sighs, exhales 
hard, blinds the

V E R T Y P O
Not
the dripping words from rotund cheeks
Or 
the mesmerized audience in fashionable conferences
Not
the frantic letters pawned from sacred pages
Nor
the cowering force of conviction in hallowed institutes
Neither
the skewed statistics manufactured on swivelling chairs
Abi
omniscient,omnipresent hard-mini-traitors know me
Rather,
I am the brackish fluid in hunger...Read More
