Hunters and Gatherers
Pines dressed in pearl hues-
bleached cotton sky. Plumes carve
night shades into taint

of crushed bones. Stone
basalt tools grind glacier till
into pallid skin

colored clay, shaped
into ornate bowls that cradle
crow ossein. Hunter....Read More

Bid him call the powers that be
of presidents and ministers world-wide
to cure the world of this ill wind blowing.

upon whose manuscript reads Apollo

it is what it is
It is what it is
I see the sobbing boy holding his empty cone,
ice cream scoop on the floor as his dad hugs
him and says, Don’t cry, son, it is what it is.

Love and hate
The rain shatters when it hits the window seal
While you may be enjoying your favorite meal
But you know one day the rain will someday steal
And maybe one day peal
away the the bad feeling you may feel.

Premium Member Trying to Outguess the Fake Detectives
Detectives solving crimes
Flashing their badges
Canvassing neighborhoods
Questioning potential witnesses
Explaining the forensics

Showing us how to taint a crime scene
Explaining blood spatter patterns
I sit in my chair trying to outguess them
Feeling smug, proud of myself,
Professional Lazy-boy detective.

His Woes in Hues
An artist at his worst
Never recognized at his best
Drew of his sunrises until
The sun begins to set.
Painted his oceans blue
Only to have others taint
Them with rue,
Alas, scribbled his thoughts
Of incomprensible grey,
In a bright deceitful array....Read More

You have no way to know that I'm not,
Though no human man-sired serves as Judge of what's true,
Seems "IN CHRIST" folk pass judgment a lot!

Beware the Mocking Jay

When you see God, your Maker
Be sure that he sees you
You’ll know what really matters
You’ll know just what is true
This world with its opinions
Its teachings that confuse
And taint all inspiration
If God is not your muse
Creation becomes creature
Deciding its own lot

Exhaled by things that shun the touch of light?
Who accepts the burden of the pressing dark?
Who faces the Abyss to read its Mark?

Prequel to ‘The Dreamer’ video

Eerily shrieks the last heron.
Through the stillness he dare not disturb
a lone wolf whimpering prompts the night
or could it be day? Ironic this pretension,
where there's no differential of time. 
Strong in certitude of ours to keep

Overdraft finds me chill and off balance
Penuriousness long did acquaint
yours truly, who feels loath
to lodge complaint
regarding series of unfortunate events
(Lemony Snicket be damned)
imposed monetary constraint,

now aghast with horror
(ain't no trick),
I unwittingly did faint,
only negative indebted interest accrues,
now if ever mister money bags I haint,
no gainsay purposelessness

Wading upon the brine of a gloomy sea, 
Upon a floating dory, I sit above this forsaken deep
A creation of shape-less matter, a liquid heap
A shadowy taint covers all directions, no exit to flee

I paddle slowly, my movements are meech

O’ this eve of tortured souls
whence howls do taint the breeze
From shadows, eyes of crimson bead
aglow yon withered trees

A voice, this night, a moaning cry
in echoes carving chills
Of shackles gripped eternal flesh
o’er fog infested hills

Its message loud as bells a’...Read More

pennyroyal festoon in full bloom —
her English garden plush.

he’s dying to imbibe.
she foresees a crime.

“sip up darl’n

ready for the kill.

Premium Member Sky Aimed Growth

I sense each tree's confident stance
and feel their staunch faith strive
to block all ills mankind rooted
that taint their sky aimed growth.

My soul reels from heartbreak in limbs
though fortitude firmly
determines them heavenly bound 
despite man's selfish ways.

With land, river, lake unable to quell

A Weird woman
she pips in fear for lateness like her peers,

hauteur cloaked with reticence,

her-boo-boo-vague, though walled around and palpable

official Narcissist disguised in rude affronts

Bravado of naughtiness in candour yet tacit

as  ignorance upsets sorts...Read More

a day in the life 
of an everyday man
mostly working to live
to provide what he can

looking at others

but a man who has everything
