Chapter 1 – Carved

5 Jul

I carved

A broken heart

On the bottom of my foot.

Each time I step

The pain of love

Is an open wound

And ooo! When sweat gets

In. How it burns! And

Soothes. So much

That I no longer

Yearn for you.

Chapter 1 – I promise

5 Jul

I would bet a million dollars

On a fair haired betrayal

If I had it.

A mad man eats his own heart out

In my dreams

Over me

I could not put him out of misery

Fast enough to please.

My lord has no pride

He lies in wait

To ambush the innocent

While I trample daisies

I pray! I fear

I run, I hide!

There is no power in this victory

One battle from a war of

Treacherous love

Games you choose to share with me

Loneliness is relative to company


If it is the big, bad wolf

You wish to be

I will wear a man of red and

Sit beneath yonder tree to wait

For thee. A basket full of

Grandmother’s treats and a

Axe man.

Together we’ll put your head

On a block

And watch with a smile

As it rolls, eyes intact

Over the miles

Of bodiless forest

And you’ll call for your mother

If you ever

I promise.

Chapter 1 – Expressionless

5 Jul

I told him once again

As he tried to spy



I said

I love you

He was


How does life get better than this?

4 Jul

I am grateful.

I am open to opportunities that improve this world, starting with myself.

I make decisions and choices that honor this life and the life of others.

I continue to strengthen every day as a giver, not just a receiver; a grower, a keeper, a steward of the fragile beauties in this life.

I listen with a clear conscience and open mind knowing everything new is new.

I heed the lessons of the past and make goals for the future but my life is here and now.

I accept and embrace the duality of nature in myself and the world I live in.

I am all I need to be at this moment.

Chapter 1 – Sleeping Prophet

2 Jul

Sleeping prophet

Close your eyes

Tell me lies

Sleeping prophet

Give me lines

Close your eyes

Sleeping prophet

Tell me lies







Chapter 1 – You want to

2 Jul

Do I want you

Only when you say you want to

Let me go?

You enslave me

With all your talk about the future

Then you say

Let’s take it slow.

Chapter 1 – A Limerick

2 Jul

Purple-eyed Peter

Was so stoked to meet her

When she said that her name

Was Penillia

At half past eleven

He poked in to see her

And by noon

They were half way to heaven.

Chapter 1 – The River’s Edge

2 Jul

Did you ever stand at

The river’s edge

My love, and were you alone?

Stars shine brightest in winter’s

Forbidden season

My fire burns them.

And may I help you trim

The olive tree

Before the smoke drifts

Into spring again.

I will miss you

When you have gone away

Into a misty future.

Be with me now

There is no time

To say forever.

Chapter 1 – It’s Coming!

29 Jun

Catastrophe made her hungry

Until she ate herself sick

And drank to swallow heaves

The tornado is over

In its path

Human suffering, felled trees

Leveled buildings

G-d’s wrath

Claims the innocent

Leaves the destitute

Brings love home

A woman quotes newscasters

Cross-streets, casualties

Disregarded warnings

Your time is coming

You better have your house in order

Family in line

Taller to shorter

It’s coming. It’s Coming. IT’S COMING!

Chapter 1 – Sleep

29 Jun

Before my bed was made

We could study case histories

Of serial perversions

But my hand looks so much

Older now and my breast

Is soft

The mystery makes no sense




Don’t stop to dream

Just sleep

Save yourself

Sever social bindings

Sleep severely
