GANG
They say once your in, there’s no way out
Unless you’re wounded in a bed, or six feet under ground
You step out into the streets
Getting shot, without a witness to see
Just lying there all blooded up
With blackened pupils, and still breath
Your...Read More

She senses before she sees
The manicured nails - the elegant fingers
Holding out the hundred dollar bills - enticingly - so temptingly
A generous nights takings of busking here
In one proffered hand
She grabs at it petrified it might be an illusion
Evaporating in...Read More

SET AFLOAT UPON WAVES OF AIR
Those days are gone, set
afloat upon waves of air-
that in which we dreamed, for we
were dreamers...adrift in the water
that took us to wherever
the currents flowed-
into weedy patches-
weedy and twining like our minds,
like ivy vines on cobblestone walls,
always reaching and climbing
further...Read More

To be true, one to the other,
To take a step beyond that sharp edge
That marks the bounds of Mine and Thine,
To embrace, the more nobly, in its stead

THE GRIM REAPER

Calm before the storm - Cafe Musings contest

Where are the people these chairs to fill.
Can hear shouts and cheering drafting in the air
Are these the people who will occupy each chair

They are at the Rugby an important game
So some with...Read More

Pills and Other Drugs
Taking these pills
To make me feel sane
But taking these pills
Makes me more insane
I see dots & circles
Swirls of colors
Faces are morphed
Objects look rubber
I don't know what it is
That makes me so crazy
Everything's hazy
Maybe just maybe
If I didn't have the urge
To...Read More

Mixture of herbs and root led to our conception.

We have limits and boundaries when invited,

The Newest Old Movement
We watched Frida Kahlo 
with our backs toward the rice fields
The monkey fits tightly to her breast, 
her right breast. A parrot 
on her left shoulder; two chatter-boxes that mimic
What if the wolves pull our wool over our eyes?

Shifting of days
In the shifting of days repeat, one slips of mind all the powerful and meek gratitude.

A feather floats freely.

Overwhelmed by such responsible ways,distracted by so many a trials when so clearly
simplistic are the goods we for granted take.
