I remember you softly
I remember you softly
That gentle ache
that reverberated through the bone
brought the tears to home
unshared and alone
now gone
Replaced by the numb
Jagging tacks in the flesh of the thumb
Reflex don't condone
Pity has been sewn
nothing grown
Bend you light around
Shadows just pass by

Saša Milivojev - A FAIRY’S CIRCLE DANCE 

A circle of fairies enraptured
When a soul dreamed the word
I was drawn by a fairy’s hair
Infinity smells like her
In my yearning
I was lost
The circle danced blindly
And then I told you
I wished to leave...Read More

Knick Knack Paddy Whack
Can’t take back a wisecrack
If you wanna be a crackerjack
Earn a greenback from blackjack

Gotta buyback your backpack
Need to blister pack your flapjacks
Evident ebbing of drawbacks
Raises the bar for the sad sacks

The good life, so Kodak

By Valerie D. Staton

It pains me my memories are fading 
My parent’s memories were sharp as tacks

Oh Hillary, dear Hillary what did I hear
Your emails were given without any care

To empower your foes with the absence of couth

Oh Hillary, dear Hillary what did you say

Premium Member The Eccentric
He was known as an eccentric; 
Saving all of those bolts in a bucket 
and for what?
No one really knew, except himself.

He kept numerous old jugs and cartons 
around the house, 
as if they were valued treasures.
Old string and ropes...Read More

Premium Member We Are the Kindergarteners
We are leaping and peeping and laughing and clapping.
A fun day for sure, and there has been no slapping.
We are the kindergarteners, a mighty throng.
We are cheering and yelling, one is singing a song.

Premium Member He-Monster Professes His Love
Beautiful is your foot with the stabbing nails.
The yellow and green ones that have never been cut.
Gorgeous is your gaping mouth with the missing teeth.
And your big and hairy smelly monster butt.

My lady, my love, my dragon queen troll.

He's the class clown, full of hijinks and pranks,
Puts tacks on your seat, swallows fish from the tank.
He's full of you-know-what and vinegar, energy galore,
Will he act goofy today? -- Does a hungry lion roar?...

You ask to know my history

All worn upon my breast.

This one is for gunnery
This one's for artillery.

Contemplating Light
Light is an incredible thing.
Without it, would we find a way to move
through mists of thought and deed
what would attract us, initially
toward the lives we choose?
Unable to see, would we mask truths 
in silk, feeling along each other
scented, sensing perfumed...Read More

Rat Trap Rap, Part 2 of 2
There, parked in rows
like overused commas
or German prose
or mothballed bombers

lay ranks of rats
as if on drill,
but quite as dead
as vaudeville.

Someone had slit
each ventral hide
and pulled it back
to peek inside.

And there they lay,
flat on their backs,
guts on display,
paws pinned by tacks.

Ashamed,...Read More
