Premium Member Portraits on the Fourth of July

A girl in the crowd takes a selfie.
Her tam o’shanter sparkles
because of the fireworks going off
in the background.
At the gates of Moscow
Tchaikovsky runs away
hands over his ears.
The girl with the cell
is as pretty as her friend beside her,
but her friend...Read More

To My Love Part 1 TBC
Far from having a nascent thought that envelops my rabid self,
Like inside of an accurate Swiss watch that had been given -
A present to presidents and diplomats from the 70’s era,
Memories in the kaleidoscope of life, one by one,
Like crazy...Read More

When we were Young
When we were young
We didn’t know what we could become

When  we were just sixteen.

The road ran  on forever
Summer lasted long and dreamy
Never a thought of being old
When we were young and bold.

We met together...Read More

Yet I am happy for this is all right with me.

We Hear Our Tam Tam Drums
Our tam tams are vibrating
to the rhythm of the hunt.
Mighty bear is in the forest
showing his angst.

His claws are large
as the tips of our spears.
His teeth are as tips of arrows,
which fly to his fur.

Everyone would say,  did you hear?
She's the one
She's too young
How irresponsible

Wearing smiles upon their faces, 
pasting labels on her back
Her sullied reputation,
