He thought everything he did was normal, 
That no one was different from him,
He thought everyone lived with a strange set of rules,

Lugubrious Losses, Choices, Voices and Tosses
Remonstrations, protestations, recriminations
In the wake of a calamity that strikes below the belt
In communities decimated and disabled by insinuations
Brought to a head when fickle feelings melt

As tempers in embers flare
In scenarios of utter disbelief prompted by dysfunctions
In families with implicit...Read More

Archaic Eulogies and Their Synergies
Live on Facebook
I post rubbish
To caress the spook
Who dares to finish

The sleep I lose
In the wee hours of nights
Disturbed by the booze
I swill in my fights

Against strictures
Society calls taboos
In lampoon literatures
That scorn the tattoos

Adorning my arms
My torso, my neck
Without the...Read More

Light Drollery
The staff lounge had a posted sign
Hung prominently, by design.
It said, addressed to you and me,
“This room is for light drollery.”

I did a double-take and laughed
And wondered if I’d get the shaft
Or what reproof they might just levy
If my drollery...Read More

The love of my life, nature, it feeds me!
It feeds the world, nurtures all, yet abused!
Not me, not intentionally, you'll see.
Inadvertently, all do, yes, taboos!

Human beings are provisional
Human beings that we are here,
live as provisional creatures,
occupying provisional bodies,
possessing provisional life,	
speaking provisional language,
in equivocal temporal existence.
nothing perfect, nothing absolute	

In case of doubt let me assure you
Let’s review this claim 150 years to come

That time we shall be together

I searched in the plantations all day
one pineapple I got out of sweat
but it is not  a normal earthly fruit 
it is adorned with tattoos and taboos

A word ain’t worth a hill of beans.
Grafitti for computer screens,
a word can’t tell you what it means
(the thing it’s in existence for).

Each age forms self-defining views,
infatuations and taboos,
its West Points and its Waterloos,
but balks at what the butler saw.

Passionate kisses conjure a spell
igniting sparks that are hard to quell. 
And love’s exquisite persistent flame
seduces young lovers to play its game.

Sexual taboos on the decline
sex and death soon secretly combine.
And innocence starts to question God
visiting a plot of upturned...Read More

Start the day. In what way
was the cold spring, last wet summer a
global warning, indicator. Says

one commentator on the op-ed page, the

to see past daily survival to
