The Shore
A place with no walls
A lone seagull that caws
The sea drifting in a swell toward shore
A picture painted, tacked onto the door
A thousand colors and a thousand sounds
No words to be spoken or to be found
A chair that rocks back...Read More

Part 1

Empty frames, blank canvases, incomplete 
paintings, sketches over a work table 
scattered with drippings of paint along

of a Jackson Pollock abstract. Tacked to

When I say
I feel trapped in my mind
Like if I signed
A contract
To not be in tacked
And to feel pain
So, it can drive me insane
I'm lost
But what's the cost
To get out
Please understand me
When I say
I want to be understood

The tiny house
The tiny house is tucked away
deep within the woods

The tiny house has lost its footing

I guess that's why

I know,
Your door will stay open for me
As always to let me in
To savour the repast
That awaits me on your dining table
Laid out for me;
Hungry I am.
At the table, I will surely recount
The jollity of our younger days,
Protected and cajoled...Read More

On a sunny morning in September 1984

With her four-year-old daughter Becky in tow

And it crossed Linda’s...Read More

Diner Culture
I step from my car and I see ahead

Belushi one
In January
He made the cover of Rolling Stone.
I had thumb-tacked it
To my living room wall
Just to the right
And a little below
My Michelangelo self-portrait print.
Not knowing
The April issue
Of the same magazine
Would cover itself
With him, his death,
Not thinking
Not even thinking
Such a thing

Lowering him down upon his curved back,
On silky blue sheets, all pleated and tacked,
A pillow they stuffed beneath his cold head,
And combed his gray hair, that once was bright red.

Then buttoning his tweed, colored dark blue,
They crossed his...Read More

While riding through the klein karoo in South Africa one day
We came upon a place of fun as we went along our way.
Was an isolated, unexpected, place for us to stop.

To my life, a masarade party where everyone isn't who they seem..

I promised release

Brutality In Honesty
I’ve noticed the popular opinion-
Aided, of course, by all forms of media
From novelizations to song lyrics-
That high school boys
Are cuter, smarter, and nicer.
Now, I’ll be the very first to admit
That they get significantly
More physically appealing.
And I suppose they do get...Read More

legend in a raven's wing
there's legend in a raven's wing,
as silence waits in painted flowers,
thunder rolls in separate rhythm, 
but flame observes the day,

as acceptance snuck behind hushed voices,
terror tacked into a bay,
a thousand pitfalls await a child,
crumble dry feet made of clay,

My hubby is a workaholic,
he's addicted to his job
He loves to put in a lot of overtime,
tacked on to his normal 9 to 9
Working double shifts, 
come holidays he never miss
He loves to stay late,
vacations he refuses to take

Flatpack Sonnet Assembly Instructions
Stressed/unstressed syllables (ten to a line,
remember!) take their turns.  Fourteen in all
(that’s lines, not syllables), which often fall
in blocks of eight and six.  You’ve got that?  Fine.
Now for the rhymes.  Petrarchans intertwine
like this, in staggered couplets,...Read More

Everything's Big In Texas

I'd like to saddle up my horse...
Lope on down to Texas. 
Pack my Peacemaker, (Colt of course)...
Oh! My solar plexus!

I'm told that everything down there
Is ALL, so much bigger...
Buildings, barns, boots, buckles, the Air...
And their whiskey jigger!

Premium Member Driving Through Jungles Under the Mars Sea
Immodest mouse (though sheepishly I drive):
Cheese-poof ambition traps shred Plexiglas; 
Life’s tint is circus; freaks pedaling thrive;
My spinner’s stopped, feline-stripped out of gas.

Cradled in moon’s ambitious pseudo-shine,
Not that I could, see I’ve nowhere to go;
Clawed dizzy by stars she hangs...Read More
