Premium Member LEARNING ABOUT TOLERANCE


I remember the lineups in highschool
we all wanted to learn spanish
that sexy exotic language
stirring our dreams to travel

but a selected few where taken aside
we were encouraged to learn latin
you might have guessed that
we were taught by nuns

it turns out that...Read More

IN THE NAME OF DEMOCRACY
Our freedom fighters you have tagged terrorists 
Daily with their bloods you stain our streets

In the name of democracy 
With your constant bombings you have rendered our youths powerless and lazy
In the name of democracy you have taken away our...Read More

Premium Member Urban Art

The city's underbelly gets tagged
by gangs spray-painting their territory.
And vulnerable recruits are snagged
by local teens em-blazing their story.

Virgin spaces get inked with blood tattoos
depicting badges of fear crude and dark.
And yet, street artists allow folks to choose
graffiti art to brighten...Read More

Premium Member Loving Memories
On the featherbed of my memories 
At your every sigh of vulnerability
And the smile indulgent 
With which you wooed me
Is tagged your name
Close to my heart.
Scattered over the turf of my life
And witness to our cozy love
Have been your whispers...Read More

To see the terrain our act has played
Whether for the love or fun of it
The future will tell of what is done

For that which my eyes do see
Even less than that which is...Read More

The Bajillion Dollar Business Of Christmas circa December 2019
Despite being atheist,

Premium Member When a Poem Hits Home
When a Poem Hits Home

When a poem hits home
speaks to me alone
has a certain tone,
it must be my own.

I can plainly see
if it is for me
to add to my list
cause it caught the gist

So, I cannot rest
till I’ve tagged a...Read More

Premium Member Dark Night Shopping

Faces come at me as stricken
as graveyard moons.

The supermarket hangs heavy,
laden as it is with neon anchors.
The aisles are runways for empty eyes,
a few sections contain searching bodies.
 
She turns to me at the check-out,
she has me tagged;

Deer Ruby,

Premium Member Seaking of Goodbye Kisses



Why do your softly placed lips on my cheek,
pet and tickle so many years later?

If we had made love on the ground 
at that very moment,
I might not even feel it now,

but your lightly brushing lips
and those goodbye words,
are still...Read More

Premium Member QUEEN CLEOPATRA, THE-DEO-SWAGGER


I swagger on up, up onto the top,

yet it wasn't my style, being Queen of the Nile,

they saw me a leader, who filled up their jigger,

for the praises they sound, I need to keep them around,

being a swag I was...Read More

NonLiving CM


I  trip among  sewage of lanes,
Vacant parks, garbage junk
Reveal  this aimless wayfaring
Arrogance tagged as pride—

Drunk on caprice, humans become
Wares used  for amusement.
Now emptiness haunts me alive
An existence,  rotting.

Premium Member The Mockingbird
With keen discernment-

I, your Northern Mockingbird,

can recall you as a threat

from past encounters.

Known as 'many-tongued mimic'

I mock songs of birds and frogs.


My songs are diverse

and long- some twenty-seconds-

compiled from the sounds I hear.

Honored and tagged as

Why not we talk for a while, before?
I am dropping a droplet of whim here
And, I want to hear from you, for more.

I do not know as precise as this morning

Premium Member we too are aware
whales are our kin
self aware mammals like us
and they were here first

older bigger brains
tagged dated aged centuries
for millions of years

then man sought oil
for lamps putting the lights out
for whale species

the oceans once full
now populate three hundred
self aware whales

It dont take much to please me
It’s not hard to please me

Or answering my calls

Premium Member Look at all the Art
Men and Women,
who profess to be religious,
shouldn't they hear more,
then their own practiced words?
Open to all words, and answers,
 of every heart that beats,
everyone with questions,
and a void inside,
 to fill they seek?
Even the homeless,
and all those down and out.

Way to Grandma's
Remembering those l-o-n-g  train rides in the late 1950's early 1960's; back then we had to be tagged and sit at the front of the train. We were filled with excitement, eagerness, anticipation along with a little agitation...

Letter to Death
Pray, what is your purpose, Death?
Carrying souls to their fated dues,
Via your messengers, beings so vile and so ugly
That the eyes hurt simply by looking at them!

Are you part of God's team?
Acting on His orders, reaping souls from the mundane

tracking the past
Tracks stretch across
barren winter fields
yet their steel trace
like a snail's trail appears polished,
glinting in dying light,

stifling your breath,
towards a dark shed
doors creak
like a sprinter's graveled gasp.

However, birds don't sing 
above the stretched tram lines,
you cannot speak
in jolting cattle wagons,

screeching their...Read More

Premium Member Imagine This

You wake up to commotion, throw on some clothes.
Outside you see some bloody bodies piled on the street.
People are screaming, running in all directions
away from oncoming military trucks and tanks.
Your heart is pounding; your mind shouts
what should I do? Where...Read More

Doubt
You rested the pinnacle of your breast
Piercingly, against my chest
Seizing the breath in my lungs
My nostrils failed me
As your fragrance choked each and every opening
Until a second felt like an eon

I remember everything about my moments with you
Your embrace that...Read More

Premium Member Foul smelling words
Falsehood reduces the number of pages from the bible
originality through many lips comes out hyped or feeble.

Mouth, linking to ears like a poisonous drug
and for the mind, banana peels replacing the rug.
