Her oil indulgence
Her oil indulgence...

Her oil indulgence...
It was all over her hair tress and
Permeated in her whole skin too
From top to toe
And the drape slips away

'Her nape just uplifted her bun on air'
'Her breast embellished those glinted mamila'
'Her navel yet to lose...Read More

We're All In This Together
Hello, everyone.
Pay attention to these words
Of encouragement.

Just like you, I'm scared.
And we're facing the biggest
Fight of our lives.

But heed my warning:
You cannot be stubborn and
Act so immature.

Life is way too short
For fussing, name-calling, and
Hurting each other.

During these tough times,
We must...Read More

She’s no longer young.
Her calves strain
in tall stilettos.

She carries herself carefully
hips tilted
above a sloping floor.

Something worth preserving
is squeezing sacrificial feet,
and behind the pumps
a life mostly in step 
with yesterday.

Something of her style
(no longer fashionable),
still tilts at windmills;
an old school aplomb.

It only made sense to me-

like I only wade in destiny,

like I only drink very dark tea,
on summer mornings when they are scorching...

at the worried hello...Read More

Until Darkness
The Genie-us crawled silently out of the old clock, 
and climbed up the bookshelves at night

The Genie-us then read from the pages forbidden, 
feeling shame with a lusty delight

The Genie-us returned as the sun came up, 
crawling inside the tall...Read More

At last, the winds of March slow to a lighter breeze
and the chills cool to soft sunlight warming,

six foot tall and stout
long brunette hair cascading 
what a big bum she has

five foot three and fat
a blonde promiscuous lass

short haired and too muscular

courageous and spirited

The insects are crawling and does flying.

Your transition is a miracle 
A Divine orchestrated Oracle 
Like the ever-changing caterpillar 
Metamorphosed into a butterfly

Gracefully transforming its body 
Spinning itself like a silky cocoon

The flight
The worst wrong out of all
Is caging a bird, it’s the most unnatural thing.
The bird used to fly over tall-
Mountains but they tied his wing..

It’s not only about the birds,
It’s about us as well.
We need freedom from herds, 
This I...Read More

The alliteration of a nightmare
I was lost lonely longing for peace;
Until I found a fabulous fern;
It turned into a tall tree;

But before I completely captured the click
My eyes earned an eerie sight;
I was made into a malcontent man;

I saw a mysterious mansion;
The whole world...Read More

Yesterday the wind whispered my name
while the blazing locks
of her rampant mane
lay heavy on mine.
And yesterday
I saw the way
the wind caressed tall pines
in forests laced by glinting streams
and thick with tangled vines.
And though she reached
for me in...Read More

Sentenced him, like pawn, an...Read More

Quiet Soul
Quiet Soul

Her skin is that of alabaster. Wide circles of red rouge pronounced her thin lips and each cheek.
She is soulfully unique.
Her hair of dried stalk was approving to her eyes of vacuous emeralds.
She traveled the two blocks from her...Read More
