Smartly, squarely, summarily into
pall bearing sized hands Helena Handbasket
adorned with Aconite (Monkshood) atop casket
signaling demise, née sealing freedom
(of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness) fate
with eternal bondage super glued gasket.

Premium Member King Midas Trump
I wonder how Donald Trump thought
and felt
about his King Midas political narrative
at the time of his electoral college victory.

Well,
actually I don't need to wonder.
He mentioned, once or twice,
how thrilled he was with well-marketed turnout
at his self-celebratory inauguration.

Still,
I wonder how these...Read More

The Ghosts of Capital Hill
I used to be into politics,
I would shout loud, and chant, and march,
believed we could change everything
if only we could be in charge.

Get new blood into hallowed halls,
the old paradigms we’d wreck,
but neither me nor anyone
could foresee what would happen...Read More

The Tracks Will Switch
This last ride almost over,
  the train coming to a stop

The mighty engine slowing down,
  my ticket punched and clocked

With words I left untendered,
  in towns along the tracks

My thoughts there drift upon the wind,

The Askance Chapter 5 Part 2d
Because of the poison she suffers for
I must save her to see her alive and well
In return, to her I cannot say I adore
For the curse to measure up in us to dwell

Perhaps words from Sylvius can turn out to...Read More

The sounds of the pipes and drums skirled still in my ears. I knew it was the kind of music that brought him to his knees in tears.  "Sandwich?" "Sausage Roll?" Oh here we go again, that nosey little...Read More

Buzzy noise
This and that issue;
Viral propaganda

~~~~~~~~~


We the people
Need more money;
Is that funny?

~~~~~~~~~


Polling booth
Simple truth;
Who dares wins?

~~~~~~~~~


Talk of town
Non-event sinking;
Stray voices pitch

~~~~~~~~~


A good turnout
Yours for the taking;
Mandate to lead

~~~~~~~~~


Good track record
Facts speak loudly;
Wet blankets galore

~~~~~~~~~


Lots to say
More to hear;
Dangling carrots

~~~~~~~~~

Yet that heart of the other hurts in pursue of love
Love became the open door for the darkness and brightness

The Alarm Sounds
The alarm sounds and calls their names,
To stand and fight the smoke and flames,
They don their heavy turnout gear,
To meet the flames and face their fear,

Driving trucks with red lights glaring, 
Into city streets with sirens blaring,
They soon find a...Read More

a peril against civility
 In the dark allies they hide with the muzzles of their guns and fly bullets with people screaming for safety out of dazzle.
Reading long speeches in suits they wove out of patriotism and deception
Greed, vanity become values they cherish...Read More

The Last Leaf
Remember the days when life
Was all we thought about ?
It slipped by being alive
Could end when death turnout ?
One more among the crowd
To admire to whole tree
When the green leaves have sprout
There’s not much to see
On a tree that’s almost...Read More

Bad Little Piggies
This little piggy never came through 
I come in for an interview, 
Everything is pleasing,
Without explanation you leave the table.
And start to make a pizza?
I'm leaving you right now..
As I get in my car,
I see you run out to get...Read More

AT THE ROAD'S END
What will I find when I get there?

Will I find happiness or despair?

What will be the reward for my actions?

Will there finally be an end to my confusion?


Will I find myself in tears, in sorrow?

Will I continue to be empty...Read More

A Flame in Memory
I find a space 
inside my mind
letting go as 
I begin to unwind


fingers of thought
stretching out
tips graze the moon
skin begins to turnout


mind inside out
I float the sky,
laying in star-beds
eating dust-pie


eagles they shoot
within the black hole,
the phoenix cry fires
flames singed my...Read More

Seagulls
My mother, for reasons she never did explain
Loved seagulls, and summer's driving heavy rain,

When she died early of cancer,
Well before she ought
And dad and me went to the morticians,
A proper coffin that we sought

When my father saw one with seagulls
emblazoned...Read More

Two sided coin
Grab your gun, check the amo. Lock it back. Take a look out on
the world and fade to black. Go berserk. Lie your
conscience in the dirt. Let the pain and the anger do some
team work. Put your tears up front....Read More
