Premium Member Song of a Traveling Man



I flop at truck stops
hid by other sleeping truckers.
I like the loneliness.
Amarillo, Detroit, Tacoma, Richmond,
places packed and stacked
with the bad and the good.
I scoot by paying no heed,
to features, just forms,
how bodies once glimpsed
sometimes return inside of me.
Cities of light,...Read More

If Youse Guys

If youse guys knock on my door,
I ain’t gonna answer it, no freaking way, man!
Youse could be Perry Smith and Dick Hickock standing there,
Holding a flashlight, a fishing knife, and a shotgun, 
Thinking there’s a safe in the...Read More

Did Receive a Diploma
Passed all my grades  and received a diploma;
Question asked was where is all of the aroma;
A New tactic;
Being aromatic;
Told them was while passing through Tacoma.

Aroma of Harm In Tacoma Area

Of death and harm there was an aroma;
Experienced effects resulting from drama,
Near DuPont;
Many did haunt;
Happened on train ride in area of Tacoma.

I live atop a foothill to mountains of the Cascade Range
and people here keep to themselves whether on busses or on trains;
from my back porch are lights a big city can be seen;
and the blissful aroma of Tacoma remains endlessly...Read More

Indonesian limelight,
Sweltering Catholic skies,
My burden floats with whimpering puppies.
I’m left with twin sisters inside a giant watermelon.
You never read my dreams like I wanted you to.
I never fit into your brain the way you’d like me to.
Now I wait forever...Read More

Premium Member PAUL AND SARAH - PART TWO
Conditions were harsh out in Kansas,
For the children and Sarah and Paul.
Neighbors and friends packed up and were gone;
Headed west they could hear fortune's call.
Never sure year to year of the harvest,
So their talents were traded and sold.
Sarah a seamstress,...Read More

Egos Higher Than the Space Needle
Right now, in the Northwest town of Seattle,
Seahawks egos must be higher than the Space Needle.
On the west coast, it was just a little after seven,
when the Seahawks faithful felt they entered seventh heaven.
After what happened at the Super Bowl...Read More

Premium Member THE DAY BETWEEN GOOD FRIDAY AND EASTER 1989

I wrote about rain
In Tacoma early on
Sitting in a kitchen
Watching the street below.

Yet today I'm very far South
And it's a different rain
This one is filled with many thoughts
Made of many types.

Drizzling and misting
Hard and straight
Only one sunny break
Easter prelude weather....Read More

Tacoma Truck Stop Blues

Trucking down from Canada, through Northwest America.
Feeling every lonesome mile, you can rest in just awhile.
Southwest of Seattle town, there’s a place where you sit down,
Drinking, trying hard to lose those Tacoma truck-stop blues.

“Better get back on the road, ‘hope...Read More

Critters
They call me Elly Mae 'round here,
For my critters are so many.
I love 'em each and every one,
And couldn't part with any.

You see, Tommy, he's the eldest,
Grumpy through and through.
Course, eighteen years as a cat,
Would make me grumpy, too.

Our dog,...Read More
