The hell of memory
burnings on the stake of life
ash settles in dust

Cowboy balladier
Memories rising like smoke
Sad songs, fire and stars

The dangling of a thread
hope suspended by a whim
latchkey of despair

As the Bombs Drop

We must stop

Thinking literally

Life is a metaphor

Not a fact.

How Old?

Ask me my age and I’ll tell you
True

I’m somewhere between

Birth and Death
Are you?

The Life Of A Cat

Sleep.
Eat.
Sleep.

Play with string.

Sleep.
Eat.
Sleep.

Hu nt a bug.

Sleep.
Eat.
Sleep.
Sleep.
Sleep.

Word to the Latecomer

Life’s too short
Not to start
On time

If your coming
Is not worthy of keeping
To the minute

Then do us a favor
Stay where you are and
Let the rest of us

Proceed
Before the date
Too late, expires.

In a Poet's Eye

is the reflection
the image of a ghost
haunted by life
love-lorn romantic
the heart cut open
exposed
the flesh peeled away
in layers
words fall
drifting silently
the sad and bitter tears
of a lost embrace…

Unplugged

To be disconnected
Pulled from the wall of
Family relationship
Unable to fire electrons
Up and down thin
Conductors, no grounding

For a live wire

Spinning out of control
Lethal shock
Without warning
Unclaimed bodies
To litter a house
Built on unreasonable

Expectation.
