[As you can see I wrote this over a year ago...still true today.] 




And now to arm

with what to pay

and who does whistle

and whom shall slay

Not with my vote

Not with my dollars

The machine does cry

for war

As old men holler

Not only are they rotten

past stinking

They are Petrified!

Of Millennium Days


Of Millennium Days

these were the best

the clearest and true



 Tickled reflections smiled back

giddy with joy

for the future



quiet stollen moments

on a clear September day

bask in these moments of peace

Stare Off 

 And for those lucky and freeRead full post »

Spitzie, Nick, Boaner and Miles

Say with new titles and words and current thoughts

We'd have a new front page

But of course

Sharing would definately take a lot of paste… Read full post »

B Team

never picked


Its ok to B on the B Team

At least they let you play 

When all the others have have had their say

A visit may come your way

B team players are more than they seem

B team players are the glue in the seams

The color on print… Read full post »

On the way to the Lake

On the way to the Lake

On the way to the Lake today we found a sign

the dogs and I 

We found a sign

a tiny sign 

A tiny sign

It wasn't that the cottages seemed smaller

than usual

Deep in the shadows

past the twisty old fence… Read full post »

Once in a full Moon

Tis all She seems to muster


As slow as Hijra's decampment


As if tied to this cycle of sky

Or earth

Moon absconds

Hypnotizes her guests


Anticipated host

She exudes with a glistening aura

Listening all night to the lazy drizzle

raining down from confused skies

I tossed and turned with the same rhythm and pattern

rushing down


bloating the rain barrel

Safe is a nebulous term

for now

Get Out

everwhere you look a sin

anyway you choose

getting out what you put in

getting away with out

lifting the pen

or hand or chin

white as sin

Blue Beginings



Swinging free

This window has come open

How the air flows


Enabling me to breath

And I feel light

Like a bird

Able to fly

Free from the restraints

Unashamed to cry 

No longer encased in a frame

or shuttered closed

I am free as a silken… Read full post »

Cool Crisp Capitalism


The cool morning breeze

feels more like an early October morning

than the end of an Independent July

Tangling and untangling

pulling me forward

the dogs seek out undocumented sources

We hurry with our walk

Oh Dear God

for a travesty to befall


Send an earthquake from your hand

Let all mankind end their feud

For this difference is a lie

This Tuesday

This Tuesday

Shooting between drips

outward we trip to catch fading light

Five surface above darken spring pools

Five surface


up through the din into the dim 

So much rain fall causing urgency

for this moment must be gathered

and shared

Out to the dogs

Monday mojo - Crowns and Scepters


Crowns and Scepters

adorning my yard

emblems  of sovereignty

ablaze with the light

imperial insignias

bursting open white.

Tired Dogs

Tired Dogs

Worn out and asleep

Safe is their world of dreams

Where stomachs are full and benches are soft.

Just East of the land of Nod

These two rest their case

Abel now is the first to see

How beautiful life can be.
