Why do I not give a flying fuck...

Breathe Snowden...you bleeding out airman,

Breathe and let it go ....man.


Open up the back hatch,

and let the crimson fluid flow,

Coast to coast,

They - them wont know,


You dried out old coot,

Looking like a Scare Crow,

Blowing in the wind,

Next to that other Roadside AttractiRead full post »

Remember How Lucky We Are... 9-11-2014

How lucky we are,


To have this big play pen,

And all these toys to play with,

Jets to fly on,

Pleasure cruises,


The bad things,

And bad luck,

It is all on them,

Those bad men,


We prance and dance,

Around our good fortune,

Horray for US,

We… Read full post »

Enough Sensenon ? I Think Not.

      I think not. Self edit? Also a no - go. This is free space and time. Unbilled and unpaid, 

      Ah if we could only bill...we violentears and those who laugh and work at nothing. Making it look fun and easy is the hardest thing,… Read full post »

The Train From Mystic

   Mystic...the room loomed over the rebuilt bridge that seperated me from the army navy store of my dreams. Soft luggage. I am a tad addicted to soft luggage. My rolling stuff breaks...and my soft stuff gets shredded on the conveyers.

The Snowden tour,

Post and prewar,

Standing up coast to coast,

Ship to shore,


A bleeding out fictional fly boy,

Running my movie,

Eating oysters in Oak Bluffs,

Shooting pool in Mystic,


Once more the giant PBR's rule the bar top,

With the happy hour price drop,

The Giraffe Man...


So the Undersecretary's nephew carried the ball,

But played harmonica and blues guitar,

Moving as far away as he could from Oceanports,

As he possibly could,


In 1970 being a Bluesman in his Uncle's east coast town,

Was more dangerous than Nam,

Or so they made it… Read full post »

Marching? Saints Go In.

Do not confuse me,

With a talk radio version of reality,

I know my little place in history,

As well as I know yours,


And that we will meet again and again,

As sure as your heart beats,

Death has come and gone,

More times than we can ever count,… Read full post »

Thirty Inch Maine

Not to mention any names,

But last year the dead man was almost from  Maine,

 And now the Cowgirl tossed out Idaho Bill,

For falling off the wagon,


He had the running blues,

And the two dollars his only friend gave him,

As he rode the rocket half way to L.A.… Read full post »

Dream Catcher In the Rye

Philadelphia ...

Delaware Bay,

Bald Eagles above and Horshoe Crabs ashore,

Washed high and dry in a sweltering June heat,


Cape May,

And all the way,

There and back yet again,

Yet again,


If they knew me at the Cowgirl Seahorse,

They did not let on,
