WTF, I know I didn’t just see what I thought I saw
This old dude slammed on breaks to talk to a little girl
That could probably be his daughter, better yet his granddaughter
Look at her with her little itty, bitsy,...Read More

Premium Member Night Storm

A storm on the edge of sleep,
a night storm, a night horse,
black fire blown through
wind hollowed lungs. 

A storm in the ringing shell of self,
where sleep slopes down
to a dimming light.

The mind has shape,
it has a thousand miles
of tundra. Mountain...Read More

Save the World Stay at Home
If you want to kill a bug!
Don't just keep it in a jar
You never know when it'll break
Not knowing when it'll get free!

But there are folks out there
Who don't know how to kill a bug!
They let the bug go free

"Blind Man Turns"

Rest easy in my lull, Love

is not the gentle goodnight, Love

in the beguiling
silence of Lost Lovers' Woods

It is the war we 
all wager

in each other

We run from it
We run to it

The Labyrinth
we all are

striding fresh

Oh what fun creating the animals;
Rolled up each sleeve to create all the animals
On the sixth day.

The horse has went from dark to light that the devil has ridden

A peaceful dawn in a verdant rainforest 
Stretching and lowering their head submissively
Two tiger cubs in a fun frolic play and kittens yowl
Actively under trees, limbs, and leaf brushes passivity
Hugs, scratches, bites, and tiger growls 

Along comes a black heart...Read More

Bobby Sox and Penny Loafers DWM
Bobby sox and penny loafers,
donned the feet of the 1950 teens
as they danced away at the sock hop,
slipping and sliding doing the bop.

Pony tails swayed with the beat,
as poodle skirts twirled with the flow
brightly colored neck scarfs caught the sweat,
crewcut...Read More

The Crossing of Contract Bridge

“Get back in that queue” screamed St Peter
As the throng looked on in dismay 
With the shuffle of feet, on an impatient street
It was destined to be judgement day

There was no alphabetical order
In an air so full of impatience

To keep the British gratified

Premium Member Listening to Snowfall

At night you hear the falling,
but only after it has settled
on some eve or edge,
then you hear the voices in the snow,
you listen to the bushy tails,
of foragers,
and the sibilant lips of the slightest breeze.

Speech pitter-patters over the windowpane.
Out on...Read More

Long narrow alleys without any lights 
With a smell of decay 
Lost in silent hemispheres where the fear really bites
Where the cross is sent on its way 
Where tenderness has never been 
And none of the children dare to play...Read More

Spinning coin
I was tossed only once
Since then I never settled for anything
Round and round I have spun
Blurriness is all they see through me
Momentum never lost
Ambivalent about every direction
A cliff hanging life
Dancing around on the game table
Never over the edge
Never heads
Never tails

Li'l Bo-Peep

Li'l Bo Peep found her sheep
in a lovely locale
singing Luther’s chorale -
Mighty Fortress.
She’d trailed their tails through town   
but sheep had found a church
there she ended her search
with hopes to rest.
Left - no longer bereft

They stalk me.
those ankle-panthers.

I try to negotiate a way
into their affections,
yet they scorn
chin tickles, belly rubs
my hesitant ear petting.

Too soon
they strut away
tails stiff in the air
flashing that old pink
one eye.

5:10am Saturday
14 degrees. 
No wind.
Dark cloudy moonless sky.
Yesterday’s snow, squeaky underfoot, 
sparkles in the house lights.
Taut on leads, dogs stand alert,
erect, tails up, breath pushing clouds, 
looking back at me, 
wanting to run reckless into the night.

Beneath the city the river fishing is good.

I roam with tackle and pole below those wiggling tapeworms
Wound around the cement underbelly of bridges
Devouring the guts of the city’s glamour
Down here where shadows are long as green moss
And the voices of...Read More
