An escape
On the day 
When we encountered,
What did you think of me?
As your predator or prey?

That buzzing sound
you created was to
threaten me or to alert me
that you were coiled on the ground?

When everyone said
you were venomous
and your single bite
would make me...Read More

My (bleeding) heart is filled to overflowing, 
To see any growing glad(iolus), garden glowing;
Each sun peached, (petunia) petaled delight,
Is frozen in precious moments of pure delight,
From bursting buds, to the spicy boom of blooms,
Nature is most generous with their heady...Read More

Abominable Snowman

That iceberg epidermal cold wasn’t skin mythical
Mean vanilla bean uttering
was hardwood cord,
like a pirate plank board

Arctic words, cryo breath abominable — 
Crystalline cruel viper vapor 
violently falling like blizzard snow

Sub-zero white noise,
so cottonmouth cold-blooded,
is middle finger digital flooded 
Building virulent...Read More

There was no stopping what has happened.
The shadow grew like a viper in her belly.
We could not allow this devil to grow in our midst
The blackened souls must be forever torn asunder

The smoldering ashes stain the ground. 
Her pained screams...Read More

A Windy Edge

It runs low off the moors,
when it gets to this blustering brink,
it shoves and ropes, it punches eyes.

When it sweeps this ledge
it bites like a viper, it's voice
forged in whirlpools of chaos.

My legs tremble in a corkscrew tug of war.
Gust-mobed...Read More

I gazed long upon the glass, full of mixed drink.
Sparkling light crystal and smooth as long mink.

It glides down the palate, soothing as it goes.
Then bites like a viper, the beginning of many woes.

It stings like a bee ... strange...Read More

I wonder
I wonder how your touch would make me feel now
Its warmth, which comforted me once,
Would probably burn me
I'll turn away from it
As if it were a viper
Wanting to harm me!

I wonder how your eyes would seem to me now
Their tender...Read More

Time heals

His words cut deep like a knife,
Last night, it was as if all the unknown of the world pressed upon her gloomy soul,
His last punches blasted her chin and as well blurred her vision

five years ago,
my Model A strapping
handsome big bro,

speeding Triumph font lee, crow),

The Viper Tells a Rhyme Tale
I ask, at what cost?

Coiled beneath the leaves, nothing is seen of his reprieve.
The viper’s warning is curtailed.

Silently masked among the decay, a wooden shelter becomes his stay.
The viper’s ambush is prepared.

Wanting, searching, like field mice the children are learning.

Sugar Cain spin speeches
coming from wrinkled, prune faces
Citrus acid tongue leeches
latching on to golden palatial places

voodoo witches brew is an anaconda potion
Goodwill gestures nod seen tone sourly,
Facial expressions is wink frown candy

Stealth and insidious
Slithery venomous viper
Creeping inside my brain
Uninvited and pervading
Vile contaminating poison
Infecting my fragile sanity
Dropping that black canvas
Of all consuming darkness
When I least expect it
Inflating guilt and shame
Grounding smothering
Clipping wings and victimizing 
Stealth and insidious
