Love Letter From The Soul XXIX
L Before M,

Hints of butterscotch loiter
and lay down 
alongside your words, 
deep inside the larynx of my soul

reverberating and penetrating
slowly, hanging out with the secrets of time
whispering "sweet somethings" in your ear
as I nibble upon the silhouetted syntax 
dancing ever...Read More

Premium Member EE CUMMINGS AND I

I remember a beautiful, Spring
day in Chicago.
Sitting on my lover's lap.
His eyes as lovely as the spring-
green trees tapping gently on my
living room windows.
His lips velvety as the roses on
Montrose Avenue, that day in May

And, I,...Read More

Educating Bigfoot, Part II
...The bigfoot poked out again the next day
with the little one not that far behind,
came lunch time Julio put out apples,
before each he would stop and make the sign.

He did this for days, an entire week,
each day the two creatures...Read More

Ex Aequo
Translated by Przemyslaw Musialowski 7/13/2018



early spring, 


then and now: 

a bloody trail on the snow

quietly so that it's scary

whiteness all around and bird that sobs, 

there are no vaniquished victors

because, contrary to logic, it does not fit...Read More

The Ink Is Calling
Suspended moments between the lines,
my mind now lost in space

Sublimated syntax buried deep,
my spirit free to race

A light unfiltered, the sound of horns,
my body starts to rise

The ink is calling, my pen in hand,
new words at last—arrive

First Kiss
when a smile was locked in first kiss
syntax skipped superfluous words
in a magic spell, eyes forgot to blink

surfing and drifting along a shore 
missed lyrics of a song played out
thoughts caffeinated in exotic drink

a fragrant evening of white clouds

Liberating The Truth
With each tick of the second hand
  the immeasurable on trial

Imagination deposed
  all parameters set free

The Poets acquitted
  the logicians suicidal

All reference and syntax

Ana has a secret.
Her body like a slippery corner
hurtful eyes
you can’t know
if she comes or goes
Ana has a secret.
What a sensitive conscience
mute hands don’t move
hair that flutters around her
from east to west
Ana has a secret.
Only the necessary word
and it’s slow
breaking...Read More

Number of Man
Number of Man
(Webster’s Ninth)

To assemble humans follow layout
Swat down charges with linguistic racket
Sticks more effective than carrot dangle
Arguments sustained by pundits' jangle

Self-determination digs the fight, 
Between lovers, crevacies and urns, 
Sunken to the black scraping the rust,

Forced gynaecology for terse, gut and creation, 
Random infinity espouses truth glued thereunder,...Read More

Sin only shuns
Satan owns society
Stress owns success
Success offers selfishness
Selfishness outshines sight
Sight outweighs spite
Something overwhelms solidarity
Serenity only succeeds
Streaks only sustain
Simplify our situations
Sheep only sleep
Stand only strong
Sacrifice outweighs sovereignty
Supplies omit savoring
Semantics over syntax
Salvation obtains survival...Read More

Premium Member Lament for the Lost Pronoun

Oh! THOU art lost and gone perhaps forever
By equivocating pronoun now replaced

Abandoned and neglected left to waste

Since THOU departed there’s a missing piece

There is no cause to fear the clause
It has no teeth, has no sharp claws
Though analysis may give you pause
Dissect it, then you’ll be the one to dictate

It has a subject, and predicate
But a usual function subordinate

A Beast of Chirality

Open once again to see some peons upon the lawn.

They came to hear the Lion yawn and swipe a wife by dawn.
