My View 
Of The Political Landscape

Intolerant political parties,
Are like Bulldogs in a hay barn; 
They don’t consume the hay,
But won’t allow the other to eat it either.

They’re tenacious in spirit,
Busy spinning some favorable yarn,
And the party occupying the White House,
Never...Read More

He stared at the empty sheet in front of him. Everything had been said. Minstrel’s nightmare and it was only ten in the morning. Writer’s block. A poet arrested in void with nothing left to say. A pile of paper...Read More

A warning
Translated by Przemyslaw Musialowski 6/9/2019

Almost in all of Europe, the limit has been exceeded
Not yesterday - long ago, but the minority
Had everything except empathy and servants on the leash: 
Officials favored by governments, police, and army
- This is how the...Read More

Cup of Tea
Old Winston’s in the pub again - you can smell him above stale beer.
That bloody old blue singlet ain’t been changed for a year.
His hands ingrained with grease ‘n grime; a week’s stubble on his face.
Hair on his arms and...Read More

Hours Before a Breakdown
A yarn ball of stress I confess that I am
unravel me, construct me back into a sweater
stitched nicely and comfortable
tight enough to feel warm again, whole again
I ball up my fist, punch again at a wall of cement
but the shackles...Read More

Premium Member playing leap frog with the truth
Wish she would have told me sooner
sometime before my heart unraveled
like a ball of house cat yarn
but I already knew
but I chose to play leap frog with the truth

I still wish she would have told me sooner,
I don't like sitting...Read More

Premium Member Hair on her Legs was Weaving Itself
The hair on her legs was weaving itself into braids
Adding beads and colored yarn
While she slept 

She woke once, feeling a pinch
But had no idea 
what it was 

until the next day 
when it was warm enough to wear shorts
And...Read More

Visiting an Empty House
I visited an empty house today
I found elephants with mirrors on its hide
And a dromedary with fluffy yarn 
That raggedy Anne wore for hair

I asked if I could have the records
She had given me one year when I had
Turned six...Read More

As Dawn Weeps Its New Fall

To the old fallen barn 
where fine horses once stayed
Life spins its never ending yarn
through an old vanishing parade.

Within your rotting boards
termites eat long dead trees
Life existing in massive hordes
busy as busy honey bees.

Empty stalls,...Read More

The Crazy Kitten
The Crazy Kitten

The crazy kitten purred.
Its soft and slender  body 
Brushed around my skin.
It meowed as it juggled 
The ball of woolly yarn
All about the living room.

The crazy kitten leaped about 
Pouncing on the little mice.
It wondered about...Read More

Bygone Days

Remember the slogan
 “Haskell is moving, are you pushing?

The railroad depot stands no more
In the spot it occupied for so long.
Instead in it’s space, a Homeland store,
But in my memory it doesn’t belong.

Under a  trellis of vines, quite evergreen
