Premium Member Mind over Milkshakes


I was a simple picture of a person,
just a gulp of a guy.
She was not my first girl; she was the second.

It was a Dairy Queen date, 
banana milkshakes, me tanking-up on her foggy 
eyes,
imagining her naked foggy 
female body...Read More

One is Not a Prime Number
One is not a prime number
But a singularity that stands alone
One and itself in the vast sea of 
Numerical complexities
It stands alone, solemn
Edging close to the realm of nihility, of nothingness
Yet, all the same, an infinity away.
Why is it that...Read More

Intermission
I got nothing, I got nothing
wanted words to put on this page
looking around like the plaster on the wall
an undiscovered poster would give me lyrics to recall
Admittingly, I'm just aiming to stall
drumming my fingertips on the tabletop to conjure up...Read More

Premium Member Shine like the sun
As I listen to the waterfall,
Sitting on my tabletop nearby
The water flows to relax my mind
As it settles with answers I find
Gratitude fills me for all support
I receive with all I report
There are those who go the extra mile
To care...Read More

Premium Member THE UNDERPINNINGS OF DUSK
The candles lit in starry night moon tryst
Upon the skyline tabletop tonight.

The wolfish howl bids dusk a lusty kiss.
The eyes aurora borealis green.

The tangerine and blackened bat duet —
The blend surrenders to the sinking ship.
Their heart, the moon, does slowly...Read More

Ode to a Cockatiel
Ode to the Cockatiel

You exasperate me. 
The most maddening creature
To walk, 
Waveringly across the tabletop
Drawn by an invisible wire
To my bowl
You stand
On the tips of your claws
Four scaly toes strain
You peer 
Over the edge 
And take a nibble
Of what’s inside.
Did...Read More

WHEN DAYLIGHT SEEPS
When daylight seeps
‘round curtains sadder than the hangman's noose
To a room where brooding melancholy sleeps
Where are you, outside of lifes lone excuse?

When steaming food
To polished plate, wisped reminds of meals once shared
On tabletop scarred with my lonesome mood
Where are you,...Read More

To have my cake and eat it too
To have my cake and eat it too
The best of both with no adieu

Pint sized comforts, nestled in
Where personal space is growing thin

Amongst the city that never sleeps
Behind four walls, no one peeps

A Consistently unconventional land
Safety first, but nothing bland...Read More

A waddling wafer in striped pyjamas

A feathered goblin often chews a tail from a sweet scented twig but a pixie can eat over two hundred caramelised pebbles in one single bite and swallow. Swallows passing in the colourful air are...Read More

Premium Member Still Life with Flowers
It is an unseasonable March day.
My kitchen blinds are drawn against morning sun,
their slender slats like new skin protecting the body's vital organs;
eyelids before this rose-covered tablecloth as though the blooms
are the pale larvae of our future, still coiled and...Read More

chasing cabinets
To catch a cabinet is to firstly attach a handle to a hook. Then it is possible to stand on a high street swooshing around with the line. Creaky cranky cabinets called. Cannot one single item be delivered by palm?...Read More

Cocktail Party Blues
Sheer boredom has me at this torpid end
Another rerun; please give me a break 
The short list of scripts to which they pretend 
I simply just can’t find one flying fake

Perhaps I’ll jump up on this tabletop
Do my best impression...Read More

Believe
The tabletop reverberated by your powerful fists
My nail polish on the other edge, 
If it jumped an inch, It jumped five
I caught it.

Arm raised up over me, poised for the strike
I believe you
Scissors wielded like a dagger
I believe you
Bloodshot eyes...Read More

The Nap
The Nap
        by Odin Roark

Through a smudged barroom window
A child stares in at the old man

In his darkened corner spot
He sits on a rickety chair
Head bent downward
Bleary eyes fixed on a weathered tabletop
His...Read More

woda
bought a fountain soda
at a 7 eleven &
after initially sipping it down
in the early day
when the ice held together,
chilling the fizzy,
traditionally carbonated liquid,
she sat it down on her tabletop 
in order to get her daughter ready
for when her father came...Read More

Silent Night
Labors of the day complete
Greenery, reddery, goldery
Tinsling tabletop and tree
Fine china and linens, crystal and silver
Await the morrow's festivities
Aglow in the simple warmth of the Christ candle.

A light in the darkness
Gently illuminating nutmeggy, clovish, sage-scented air
Highlighting crisp echoes of rustling...Read More

Child labor
I wonder, sitting in the corner,
mulling over the child cleaning tabletop for the owner;
Owner of the shop where i am drinking tea,
And feeling sad about the boy's plea.

I rose from my seat-
Moving ahead with trembling feet.
Then offered him a piece...Read More
