A giraffe, an Okapi and a blue wildebeest
Walked into a bar hoping to have an horde ‘ore feast
A bongo, an Asian water buffalo came in too.
I’ve decided to sneak out. How about you?

Longing for Absolution
He spent the night seeking the smoke of the lucky
for the things once known:
the warm bed, the place to shower, the cup of hot coffee
and the things unknown.
He wandered deeper into the city where the burdens get heavy.
He found himself...Read More

BIRDS OF A FEATHER

We The poets, and songsters, 
with pure hearts; Revolutionaries,
whom have lived and died for truth 
will sit among us there.

Birds of a feather flock together;
Red ants go where red ants go.
Giraffes don't hang with the water Buffalo.

Anna Marie
A beauty that keeps him admiring cannot resist the view
Magnificence that continue blooming as cool as morning dew
Picture perfect that is unfading as long as he is in love with you

sad eyes
from deep within 
cold sockets

He lay there in silence, concealed for the moment
No movement now for about an hour and he had 
consumed five cigarettes handily.
Geez he thought, enough already, give me a break.
Give me a patrol or something....Read More

The Escape 

When Rudolph the red nosed reindeer wanted to
Be normal and join the flock on earth, Santa got depressed
Sat by many of Finland’s lakes contemplating his life
He too was tired of flying through the air and gets a cold

But today I saw

When Sparks Fly
Life cracks me up 
Throwing bricks at my face
Dodging them through the paths of the wilderness
Where the water buffalo roam
Strangers make accusations
or peek into business
Where eyes will be destroyed for piercing through sharp glass
Note to self don't ever look back
Keep...Read More

Six months away to travel
Home to a nostalgic place
Where, once more, I'd be able to capture
The free things:
Mountains, pristine rivers, rice fields, fresh air, etc

My relatives packing all sorts
Used clothing, spam, corned beef, Vienna sausage
Coffee, coffee mates, chocolates, candies
As if...Read More

The baby ponycorn took a long drink from the 
Still water of the pond.  
The Enchanted forest kept her safe and sound
Though the reflection in the water gave her
Chills that nearly woke the unicorns of old
From there dead slumber...Read More

Feathered Freedom
there, 
cottage of my old, carefree childhood,

softly 
awash in moist morning sunlight,

nestled 
beneath swaying, shiny palm trees;

yonder, 
knee-deep in flowing, verdant grass,

my black 
water buffalo roams at will,

leisurely 
feeds on freedom while on its back

a delicate, 
white egret slow-dances,

its feathers...Read More
