The Benny Story


I didn't know how to tell Benny's Story until recently it became clear.

 

 

 

1977 was the year. I was 20 and had moved into my first apartment north of Six mile on West Parkhurst Place in Detroit.

The upper in a two flat on a… Read full post »

Righty Tighty

Stand still

I heard it...
The ever so silent creek...ssh listen...
Just below your feet

His roots

this ancient Silver Maple, tweaks his source

Feels his neighborhood...here a twist, there a stretch...


Too busy to see
Too busy to notice
Numb and crowded in your city flat


Slowly he… Read full post »

The Eyes Have It

ryaneyes 2 

An anointed wind blows

across the shriveling country

slapping backs

and kicking yapping dogs

Cooling palms wither

in the biter blow

The poor vote dithers

and my ears bleed from offensive lies

taunting tilted

fractured

The gnarled  truth of a once bright nation

Close to the End of Summer - Seventh GC

Labor Day Light-Poemagraph

 

Night Light

The yellows have all reappeared for fall

after laboring away the summer

And dewy morning greets us all

the vine along does lumber

Morning Dew 1

 From deep within the woods below

wild sunflowers bow and wave

Helianthus shines almost aglow

tucked loosely in it's… Read full post »

The Adventures of Paulocchio

We all know how the story goes

First it starts and then it grows

Naughty, pine-wood marionette

Caught within the Fisherman's net

 

Paulochhio lies unable to see

Even though his strings are free

Misguided Wanting Wooden fool

The Storm of Isaac

 

Ismitt

 

The storm of Isaac laughs upon

the righteous bold with greed

 

And drones down on tomfoolery

while evil plants it's seed

 

For safe within the halls of Canaan

sterile plans do boil

 

And vileness flows as if to bleed

an ancient wrong much soiled.

Momento

I wonder who will make my bed

who will clean

after I am dead

 

who will sort and fold with love

toss the rest

sell or shove

 

And what of all my precious bits

that gathered dust

while they sit

 

I wonder if they'll find a home… Read full post »

Lurie Knows

 

Come with me

while I wait on a train

for here in the middle of the city

past aged columns

Columnar Age

behind the tall hedge lies

the Lurie

Behind the Hedge

"Hush now," and come inside

"Heed what I tell you."

Fire in the Sky-PGI Lunacy

Fire in the Sky

 A ground shaking

dog quivering

bombastic disturbance

until the wee hours of the morning.

In my front yard

over the Pond...for a week.

LUNACY! Yes a folly of indulgence indeed.

The Pupa

In the dark I am all in

a chrysalis

and all there is

I am enough

I climb into the hammock

a mandatory rest

a dry out

warm up

before tackling the deep

or skimming the surface

Absence in Colour

Silently waiting for it matters not

beauty glows here mute

Reticent and paper thin

the page still rests unturned

Sage wings

Reluctantly the shallows teal

tranquil of deaf remains

shallow

Taciturn this prayer for water comes

The Instant

Larson's head shot

 

The day and the moment

are all but the same

when Larson and we met

connection was made

 

a heart beats

and then jumps

or maybe it skips

 

but electric the movement

is soul deep

and dips

 

then inside your being

the shock renders mute

Surviving the Heat

So how is it you're surviving this scorcher?

Today it's 102 degrees here in Chicago. Our top floor pied-a'-terre, with the fantastic view, just doesn't get any cooler than 79/80 degrees. I've got all the blinds closed and dark sheets over the windows. So much for the view. The trees… Read full post »
