Premium Member Parrot Ting Reflection From A Barry University Graduate
There has been much about being on a stage 
Since I started dealing with that adult style wage 
The Orange one used to welcome the new year 
With an evening date filled with cheer 

Now it says goodbye
With a match...Read More

2009 Hyundai Sonata funereal lament
Unaffordable, yet valiant speeding, 
tailgating, and zooming Pep Boys, I cannot dodge. 

Yours truly grief stricken
(sob... sob... sob)...
wheely hard to bear
this anticipatory anxiety
riddled joker impossible
mission thwarting despair

death knell tolled (told),
woebegone news, I did fear
hears stunned me into silence,
the unwelcome prognosis,

Premium Member October Ready
Hot pumpkin bread
Fresh from oven
Warms October

Spicy apple cider
Too sweet but still
Appreciated, in this cold

Orange candle, lit 
Flickering, brings in warmth
October ready

Football bets,
On a computer,
game to play

tailgating
with strangers
norm

homecoming
corsages, colors
rehashes memories

bonfire, 
yells and shouts
October!

{Free Verse}
Apr 24, 2018• Copyright © daniel miltz 

Long prior - I took to the wheel 
On a day, fairly, surreal
Amid one of my visits back home
I went to see, tailgating, all alone
My boyhood city. A city...Read More

It was a trip that started 
'fore my classmates departed
And we're headed somewhere I didn't know

Breakin' out early 
On an unexpected journey
I was only too happy to go

Hopped in with Mom 
And the priest Father John 
And Dad who drove...Read More

No Signs Of Life
No jaywalking, 
Instead use the overpass; 
No loading and unloading 
Of passengers male or lass.

No parking
Of the cars old and new; 
No overspeeding, 
Eyes watch from the view.

No tailgating, 
Drive not too closely behind; 
No overtaking, 
Life is on the...Read More

Nothing would stop her charm, sex and cool, 
Especially on a hot summer’s day.
Acting all chilled I’d rev her maxed motor, 
‘Til she screamed down that inviting freeway.

Celebrating life with a thrust and a swerve, 
Obeying only some laws of...Read More

Premium Member In the Genes
Earlier in the day, dipped
into a little Thucydides,
and revived my memories of
Corinth and Corcyra.

Alliances and duplicity,
trophies taken and lost,
innocents slaughtered handily,
for revenge,
and thoughts of Syria
and Fallujah came to mind.
Things in THAT part of the world
don't seem to ever change.

Watched a...Read More

JOHN M. ARRIBAS


I never subscribed to an unusual idea
That aliens are among us and thriving here
I now question my stand on that theory
Cause I’ve noticed some bodies quite eerie
I see gigantic beings wherever I go
They start out...Read More

WAS PHIL TAILGATING LAST NIGHT
“Guten Morgen”… or should I say “Good Morning”…
This is Punxsutawney Phil 
Hailing you from Gobblers Knob 
That’s my tiny hill!
Today, I am feeling like such a lucky ground hog…
I know that some of you may be weeping
But as for me...Read More

Pigskin laying on our 40
And snow is hitting hard
The only warmth you feel
Roar from a heated crowd
This is not what we want
3rd & long, 1 point down

The game we won't forget
C'mon go, green and gold
Give us...Read More
