Flutterbies in the garden – burple for purple;
Empires on first base – the Umpire strikes back;
Alfanso Bedoya – no stickin’ badgers;

I will begin my story with this concise summary,
Of the amazing things that have happened to me;

After I had lost a home, where I'd lived my life long,
So they could build a highway, for the busy throng!

Doing Time
On a dark and rainy afternoon
Whence I’d been sentenced to my bedroom
For my crime of failing to take care
To not be a pain in my mother’s derriere 
As it happens, I was a lad of six
Full of mischief and annoying...Read More

Oh, how my heart did swoon
When you came to me that day in June
And told me of your doom and gloom

Oh, how my mind was in agony
When you shared with me your misery
And forever altered our reality

Corona - How I Hate You
The world has been love with coronavirus,
And you only talk about that,
Like high school girls fretting over the handsome dude.
I never knew this Corona,
And when he came I decidedly broke up
(Eventhough I was never loved).

I don't want to be in...Read More

Closing my eyes, quickly and quietly,
praying to forget how I previously felt. 
Yet it somehow remains. 
Waking up and still feeling the pain. 
Still feeling the empty hole in my stomach, 
the soreness, and dryness of my throat, 
the places...Read More

As she meditated the room brightened. 
Streaks of energy came in and lightened.
She did not flinch, used to such things.
The whirls of essence danced in her rings.

She shut off her eyes and concentrated.
Hoping her front latch was firmly gated.
She understood...Read More

I've never thought much about shadows until now
I could wax lyrical on this subject if I only knew how
I love to look at trees in the twilight
They become silhouettes making shadows to delight
Many magnificent pictures that come to mind

No cares about relativism, just truth,
Where was that bone by ratio of this?
No dares without brothers of youth,
Similar, they smile the sun to dismiss.

These bones, similarly, land at ths?

I was born in 1937 I'm nearly 83

For someone to dance with me

Sometimes with my husband
But mostly with the broom
In the fifties when I was in...Read More

Her bulbous profile and pungent odor
That sunken chin and busy motor
A tremulous scowl crosses her flaring lips
From her cup rum she gulps, while others sip

Her mouth opens wide in a hideous grin
Displays shocking tooth decay within
Some teeth rotten; others chipped

The Grand Ball.
The amorous ambient moon
Hung full and high
Perched within the Twinkling
Dark velveteen pincushion sky
The welcoming warmth of a pleasant
Summers embrace
Ambles on at a steady pace
Orange bright light
Seeps through large arched windows
From the stately house on yonder hill
Awaiting carriages to...Read More

Getting older brings forgetting,
One by one,
My long-known  friendly  words,
Amassed and loved since childhood.
Against my will, words fly out of my mind’s window.
Trying to recapture them leads only to
Headache and frustration  -

when our oats were being sown while living single ways.
