(irrigation)

I am a city girl, 
I have never,
until now…

Ridden a horse across the desert, 
held a tarantula for longer than…
five minutes, 
used an incubator to raise chickens,
helped keep track of puppies (twice),
cut tails and sewed them like material.

Little Miss Muffet
When Little Miss Muffet 
first visited buffets,
she’d choose just cheese entrees,
macaroni...

Until one day in line
a grand gourmand spied her.
He advised some cider
and egg foo yong.

Now I'm the frightened one;
ev'ry night of the week
new gourmet food they seek.
They're off the grid....Read More

"Ransom"




Held to ransom 
words inject your mind
pierce your skin
drawn backwards 
you transcend, 
you look within
a bloodied mind
the numbness melts
inconsequential ignobles
and dreary misfortune
a polar ice cap 
lying cold on stony heart
rescinds


Blue blood bleeds Red
Mystery Girl
Implodes your heart 
Reconnaissance transforms

Spider And Humility

A tarantula perched upon your humble shoulder
As chance would have it this fine morning bright
The drunken executioner comes staggering by
From a nights merriment and party in the pub
A weapon rests on his not so...Read More

Premium Member The Antilles Pinktoe Tarantula

I am the prettiest tarantula in the Caribbean Sea
My web is the most intricate of my kind, a cone in a tree.
When I get larger my tummy turns red, and my legs turn purple-green.
Anole lizards are my absolutely favorite cuisine.

A funny thing happened on the way to the zoo,
You won’t believe it but I’ll tell it to you,

SHORT HEROIC SESTET - WILD MEADOWS
WILD MEADOWS
Wild meadows left and right, guarded
by hedgerows, each side with gates,
openings on sites regarded
macro, wildlife wonders, elate's
scientist, biologist, all.
We venture into grasses tall. 

Eyes wide open, and cameras
all to hand, notebooks recording.
A shout goes up, tarantulas!
Some idiot had been...Read More

Taking Todays Tumblerful Tea Time
This teetotaler turns to tea

thru teaching this totally tubular
toothless titular Texan thuggish tyrant

titanic tsunami tempest
tastefully tickling temperance

Didn’t digest my all-dressed pizza
Suffering now from insomnia
A touch of every possible phobia
Mostly of ravenous bacteria 
And humongous tarantula
O yes, and the sordid mafia

Did I put away the spatula
Did I book girls’ day at the spa

Awestruck
I ascend the VERY vertical mountain slope
Stepping upon twisty Snake roots and snail shell boulders
I'm a clumsy Billy Goat
The rain falls silently 
It leaps off emerald leaves and rolls off ground bound rocks
They glisten with beauty and dangerous slippage
Awkwardly I...Read More

My Blood Bleeds Sand

My blood bleeds sand,
That golden sugar that spreads
Across the wandering West
Where purple sage dots, and
There a tarantula spreads atop
A random hill.
Where blazing and blinking stars light
Black blue skies.
And stupendous sunsets 
Color and shadow sand mounds
Like bald-headed men,...Read More

ONCE IN A BLUE MOON'S VENTURE
I UNDERTOOK A JOURNEY TO SEEK THAT WHICH I TREASURE

If a pink elephant rides on a green wave then the tarantula will be under great pressure. Chains are a peril. Particularly when placed upon a coconut. Technical difficulties are often solved with the clear blue lines of a fountain...Read More

swipe a finger across
